english lyrics by: Jui-Hua (Ray) Huang

Yoake no gaadoreeru ni
Futari koshikake
Biru kara yuuutsu sou ni
Noboru asahi miru

Deatta dansuhooru ya
Kisu shita roji o
Ima made sagashita no sa
Ai no otoshi basho

*Naze... ima... kimi... kaze...
Me [kanji: hitomi] to... me de... tada... sayonara
Naze... ima... boku... ame...
Futo... mune... yume... nurete hikaru

Toori [kanji: hodou] no mukougawa de koibito-tachi ga
Mukashi no futari manete hoho o yosete iru

Naze... ima... kimi... kaze...
Yubi... kami... mou... tookute
Naze... ima... boku... ame...
Me o... fuse... kimi... mi-okuru dake

* Repeat




A guardrail in the early dawn we see
Side by side there is a pair;
From the building, waxing melancholy,
They both watch for the sun to appear.

Once they would meet at ballrooms once each week,
Now they seldom even dance;
At all the alleys that they kissed, they seek
For the place where they lost their romance.

Somehow...today...to you...the wind...
From eye...to eye...just now...sayonara...
Somehow...today...to me...the rain...
Sudden...my heart...a dream...dampening in the light

On different sides of the paved walk they go,
And the two ex-lovers greet;
Act like the couple they were long ago,
As the two almost meet cheek to cheek.

Somehow...today...to you...the wind...
Your hand...your hair...by now...far away now...
Somehow...today...to me...the rain...
My eyes...look down...to you...and I must say goodbye

Somehow...today...to you...the wind...
From eye...to eye...just now...sayonara...
Somehow...today...to me...the rain...
Sudden...my heart...a dream...dampening in the light
