in the wind

Natsumachi (Waiting for Summer) by ROUND TABLE feat. Nino

After the rain has let up,
you search the distant sky for a break in the clouds.
More than usual, you take a slight detour
down the road ahead leading to the sea.

The wind passes through your hair,
it seems nothing has changed, you break into a run.

The wind blows color into your cheeks,
telling you of the beginning of Summer, someday.
Wave your hand and take a deep breath,
embrace the moment.
I hope that we'll meet again tomorrow.

While chasing that white hat we laugh,
our voices echo loudly.
Early, in a little while when the summer arrives,
listen carefully.

Slowly, our two shadows will lengthen
and small footsteps will be heard.

Take the golden gleam from the darkening sky
and dye the beach completely.
Gather the fragments of the seasons around you,
and softly experience the feeling with your fingertips.
Overflow with inner light.

The waves sing over and over, close your eyes.
Gentle memories overflow in your heart.
Be quiet and watch.

The wind blows color into your cheeks,
telling you of the beginning of Summer, someday.
Wave your hand and take a deep breath,
embrace the moment.

Take the golden gleam from the darkening sky,
and dye the beach completely.
The seasons rotate, this day is nearly over,
always beginning here,
surely, here,
I hope that we'll meet again tomorrow, someday.
