Yokaze ga VEIL wo yurasu you ni
Hodoketa kami, yureta
Kirei na mono hodo hakanai
Sonna kimi no yokogao wa itoshiku yume wo misaseteta
Kogoete tobenai ageha chou
Hana ni wa tadoritsukezu
Omoeba omou hodo todokanai
Yowasugite boku ni wa sora wa fukaku takasugite
Tada, toumei na kokoro no hane de
Ima ikusen no yoru wo koete yuku
Hana ni ginka ni miotori shinai hodo
Jyouzu ni tobitanara
Eiketsu no asa chou wa nemuru
Ima ikusen no kioku tsuresotte
Ochita hanabira yasashiku furitsumotta
Keshiki wa “hana to chou”
Butterfly Orchid *Lyrics
As if it was shaken like a veil in the night wind,
Your untied hair sways.
To the limit of a beautiful thing, ephemeral,
Your profile looked lovely as you dreamed.
A frozen, flightless swallowtail butterfly
Struggling, but unable to reach the flowers.
The more I think about it, I can’t reach it
For I am much too weak, the sky much too high.
Just with invisible wings of my heart
Now, I’ll cross a thousand nights
Over flowers and over the Milky Way, without unfavourably comparing them
If only I was able to skillfully fly.
On the morning of the last parting, the butterfly sleeps
Now, married with a thousand memories
Fallen petals gently piled up
The scenery is of “Flowers and Butterflies”
