Toki – Lyrics and Translation




TOKI

Nagarete… nagarete…

Ichinichi ga machi ni megumu hizashi ni tsubuyaiteru kimi
owari to hajimari to ga inori wo kaete yuku to iu
Dareka ga kabe ni uta wo kizamikondeiru
kaze ga sore wo utatteru
Machi dewa iro aseta kokoro no kage ga
kimi no naka de mayotteru
Nani wo hanaseba ii boku wa ano koro yori
sukoshi otona ni akogareteru dake sa

Toorisugiru hitogomi no naka kimi wa boku ni kizuku daroka
fureyo to shite wa kizu tsuku itami ni
toki wa nagarete

Daremo ga kakushiteru jibun ni iikikaseteiru
dareka ga ashita no kimi ni uragiri wo furikazashiteiru
Dakara ima kimi wo tsutsumu sono sekai no
toki wo tomete shimaoo
Boku wa ima kimi wo tsutsumu sono sekai no
toki wo itsumo mitsumeteru
Ima kimi no te wo tori onaji toki no naka de
onaji yume owarazuni miteiru

Aa, yume wa katachi wo kaeteyuku
kono chiisana kokoro wo mamoru yoni
nagareyuku saki ga mitsukaru yoni

Toorisugiru hitogomi no naka kimi wa boku ni kizuku daroka
onaji yume no nakade hito wa fureau
toki wa nagarete

nagarete… nagarete…

TRANSLATION

TIME

Flowing… flowing…

Each day you whisper to the rays of light that bless the city
and change your prayers at each end and beginning.
Someone is carving a poem into a wall,
the wind puts it into a song.
In the city, faded soul shadows
get lost inside you.
What should I say? Compared to the old times,
I’m only trying to act more like an adult.

Among crowds of people passing by, will you recognize me?
Trying to reach out, I get hurt, but even in that pain
time flows.

Everyone is hiding, and second-guessing themselves.
Tomorrow, someone will end up betraying you.
This is why now I want to stop the time
of the world surrounding you.
I’m always so aware of the time
of the world surrounding you.
Now I’ll take your hand, and in the same instant,
we’ll see the same dream without end.

Ah, the dream is changing shape…
Trying to protect this little heart,
to find out where it flows.
Among crowds of people passing by, will you recognize me?
Into the same dream, people can be together
and time will flow.

Flowing… flowing…
