うたかた花火 (Utakata Hanabi) Lyrics

Update. Also posted here. I think there’s something weird going on with my Blogspot blog, so working on a couple of kinks first. Anyway, I’ll stick this one here too.

supercell’s new single! Didn’t know it was a Naruto ED until I found the song, hehe. And here are lyrics! There are a few Japanese terms I decided to leave in for effect, which I explain below. Also, Utakata Hanabi means “Ephemeral Fireworks.” Short-lived, like a relationship, hmm.

漢字:

あふれる人でにぎわう8月末のお祭り
浴衣を着て下駄も履いて
からん ころん 音を立てる
ふいにあがった花火を二人で見上げた時
夢中で見てる君の顔をそっと盗み見たの

君のこと嫌いになれたらいいのに
今日みたいな日にはきっと
また思い出してしまうよ

こんな気持ち知らなきゃよかった
もう二度と会えることもないのに
会いたい 会いたいんだ
今でも想う 君がいたあの夏の日を

少し疲れて二人 道端に腰掛けたら
遠く聞こえるお囃子の音
ひゅるりら 鳴り響く
夜空に咲いた大きな大きな錦冠
もう少しで夏が終わる
ふっと切なくなる

逆さまのハートが打ちあがってた
あははって笑いあって
好きだよって
キスをした

もう忘れよう 君のこと全部
こんなにも悲しくて
どうして出会ってしまったんだろう
目を閉じれば
今も君がそこにいるようで

甘い吐息
微熱を帯びる私は君に恋した
その声に その瞳に
気づけば時は過ぎ去ってくのに
まだ君の面影を探して

一人きりで見上げる花火に
心がちくりとして
もうすぐ次の季節が
やって来るよ
君と見てたうたかた花火
今でも想う あの夏の日を

English:

The festival at the end of August flooded with people
wearing yukata and geta,*
making sounds of click-clack ring.
As the fireworks suddenly went off, we looked up,
and I stole a glance at your enraptured face.

I wish I could hate you.
But during days like today, I will surely
once again remember these memories.

I wish I never knew these feelings.
Yet even though we cannot meet again,
I want to see you. I want to see you.
Even now, I think of the summer days when you were here.

As we sat and rested on the roadside,
we could hear the sound of the ohayashi* far away,
the fluttering echo.
Giant brocade crowns bloom in the night sky.
As summer ends soon,
I suddenly feel sad.

My upside down heart jumped up
as we both laughed “ahaha.”
“I love you.”
And we kissed.

I want to forget everything about you.
As it is, I’m’ still sad.
Why did I ever meet you?
If I close my eyes,
I can feel like you are there even now.

With a sweet sigh,
I feverishly fell in love with you-
That voice, those eyes-
Even though when I realized it, the time had already passed,
I still search for your face.

As I look up at the fireworks by myself,
my heart prickles in pain.
Soon, the next season
will be here.
The ephemeral fireworks I watched with you-
Even now, I think of that summer day.

*A yukata is a light summer kimono (I assume you know what that is). Geta are those wooden clogs or sandals they wear. An ohayashi is a traditional Japanese band.
