Sound Horizon – Mother

November 21, 2014

月夜に唄う 少年の肩に
路地裏の蝶が 紗なり停まった

tsukiyo ni utau shounen no kata ni
rojiura no chou ga shanari tomatta

On the shoulder of the boy singing in the moonlight
A backstreet butterfly rested gauzily

猫撫で声の 誘惑も無駄だよ
だが 敢えて其処は 乗った振りをする

nekonadegoe no yuuwaku mo muda da yo
daga aete soko wa notta furi o suru

It’s no good to tempt me with a coaxing voice
But I’ll intentionally pretend to fall for it

Pardon? Fool lady…
こう見えて僕は… 君より一桁ばかり年長者なのだよ……

Pardon? Fool lady…
kou miete boku wa… kimi yori hitoketa bakari nenchousha na no da yo…

Pardon? Fool lady…
I may not look like it, but I’m a bit older than you…

Then… Let’s drink it…

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
渇き切った喉を潤しながら
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your hand.
永遠に凍てついた刻の彼岸を彷徨う……

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
kawaki kitta nodo o uruoshinagara
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your hand.
eien ni itetsuita toki no higan o samayou…

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
While wetting my parched throat
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your hand.
Wandering through the nirvana of eternally frozen time…

月夜に踊る 少年の声に
誘われた蝶が 羽根をもがれた

tsukiyo ni odoru shounen no koe ni
sasowareta chou ga hane o mogareta

Lured by the boy dancing in the moonlight
A butterfly had its wings plucked off

変死の芸術 推測じゃ無駄だよ
状況証拠じゃ 此処へは至れない

henshi no geijutsu [koroshi no AATO] suisoku ja muda da yo
joukyoushouko ja koko e wa itarenai

It’s no good to conjecture about the art of unnatural death
The circumstantial evidence doesn’t lead here

Pardon? Fool people…
こう見えて僕は… 君達よりも幾分博識なのだよ……

Pardon? Fool people…
kou miete boku wa… kimi-tachi yori mo ikubun hakushiki na no da yo…

Pardon? Fool people…
I may not look like it, but I know just a bit more than you…

Just a moment…

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
渇き切った心潤せぬまま
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your cheek.
永遠に凍てついた刻の彼岸を彷徨う……

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
kawaki kitta kokoro uruosenu mama
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your cheek.
eien ni itetsuita toki no higan o samayou…

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
Without wetting my parched heart
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your cheek.
Wandering through the nirvana of eternally frozen time…

廻り廻る 刻の【異邦人】 主を失った 古びた柱時計が幾度
鐘を鳴らしたかなんてん 数える意味もないと 貴女は《嘲笑う》だろう……

meguri meguru toki no ihoujin [etranger] aruji o ushinatta furubita hashiradokei ga ikudo
kane o narashita ka nanten kazoeru imi mo nai to anata wa azawarau [warau] darou…

The stranger of time wanders round and round; maybe you’d sneer that there’s no point
In counting how many times the bells of the grandfather clock that’s lost its master tolled…

嗚呼… 乾いた花は砂となり… 面影が… 風に攫われるだけ……

aa… kawaita hana wa suna to nari… omokage ga… kaze ni sarawareru dake…

Ah… dried flowers become sand… and the traces… are carried away by the wind…

Still… I miss you…

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
渇き切った喉を潤しながら
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your eyes.
永遠に凍てついた刻の彼岸の果てに……

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
kawaki kitta nodo o uruoshinagara
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your eyes.
eien ni itetsuita toki no higan no hate ni…

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
While wetting my parched throat
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your eyes.
At the end of the nirvana of eternally frozen time…

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
渇き切った心潤せぬまま
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your heart.
二度と戻れない【檻】の彼岸を彷徨う……

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
kawaki kitta kokoro uruosenu mama
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your heart.
nidoto modorenai {ori} no higan o samayou…

Mother, dear mother, I keep on seeking you.
Without wetting my parched heart
Ah… Mother, my mother, I want to kiss your heart.
Wandering through the nirvana of the cage to which I will never return…

(Original lyrics by Revo.)
