Lyrics

Japanese

そっと流れる
白い
乾いた雲が通る
灰色のわたしは
ただじっと消えて行くのを
見てた

星を集めて
つくる砂のお城に
わたしのささやかな祈り
零れて落ちる
その足元を
待ち伏せた波がさらう

a world of darkness.
a world of silence.

消えかかる祈り
風に煽られながら
それでも灯り続けて
わたしが幾度も縺れながら
冷えゆく手で
つくる砂のお城を
待ち伏せた波がさらう

あなたへ

English translation

Translation:[3]

Quietly flowing
White
Dried clouds pass by
The ash-coloured me
Just watched their vanishing
Intently

Onto the castle of sand that I built
From gathering the stars
My tiny prayer
Falls
Waves that lay in waiting
Sweep you off your feet

A world of darkness
A world of silence

While the prayer that seems like it'll vanish soon
Is fanned by the wind
Nevertheless, I continued to light it
While I messed up again and again
The waves that lay in waiting
Sweep away the castle of sand that I built
With chilled hands

To you
