Annabel – nemo

Leave a comment

Annabel; M3-35 release Sousou, no Ame

Ex-School Food Punishment alert! Hasuo Masayuki and Yamasaki Hideaki are now a regular part of Annabel’s band. This song is the second one in the link below.

This brooding atmosphere is really powerful. The steadiness of the beat makes for a really nice contrast with the first track.

The sunlight that was at my shoulders slips down the the windowsill,
Chewing into the margins of my notebook with shadows.

From the school building, occasionally, I hear a laughing voice that sounds like yours.
With the pleasant feeling, I try closing my eyes for just a little,
And it’s just as though I’ve disappeared.
No one is looking at me.
The only thing here is a sense of presence.

“See you tomorrow,” says the girl as she waves her hand –
She must be in the city now, a part of the bustle.
With an insignificant voice
That was snatched away and then left behind,
She sees common dreams.

When the sunlight that was at my shoulders slumbers by my feet,
In the corner of the classroom where I awoke, there are stars.
I stare at them closely;
This world devoid of anyone
Projects only a sense of presence.

I gather the seasons that recede into the distance so quickly.
I look back to you.
Quietly, they repeat.
Tracing over the blurred characters, my fingertips
Are unconsciously seeing
A dream of a sudden tomorrow.

That girl who waves her hand
Says goodbye in a voice that’s just like mine.

“See you tomorrow,” says the girl as she waves her hand –
She must be in the city now, a part of the bustle.
“I’ll never amount to anything” – she struggles with the burden of that thought,
Unconsciously dreaming
Of a sudden tomorrow.

I just look back on the seasons that are receding into the distance so quickly,
Yes, without you.
Day by day, I’m getting better at pretending I’m alright.
I can walk on,
Yes, without you.

Ah…

Kata wo narabete ita hi ga madowaku wo suberiochi
Nooto no hashi wo kajiritoru   kage moyou

Kousha kara tokidoki kimi ni nita waraigoe ga suru
Kokochiyosa ni sukoshi dake me wo tojireba
Maru de kieta mitai ni
Dare mo watashi wo mitenai
Kehai dake ga koko ni aru

Mata ashita ne,  tte te wo furu ano ko mo
Kitto ima wa machi no naka   zattou no ichibu
Kasumetorareta ato ni nokosareta
Arifureta koe de
Arigachi na yume wo miru

Kata wo narabete ita hi ga ashimoto ni nemuru koro
Mezameta kyoushitsu no sumi ni   hoshi moyou
Me wo korashite miru
Dare mo inai sekai wa
Kehai dake wo utsushite

Ashibaya ni toonoku kisetsu wo hirou
Kimi wo furikaeru
Sotto kurikaesu
Kasureta moji wo nazoru yubisaki ga
Toutotsu na asu wo
Mujikaku na yume wo mite iru

Te wo furu ano ko wa
Watashi to onaji koe de sayonara wo

Mata ashita ne,  tte te wo furu ano ko wa
Kitto ima mo machi no naka   zattou no ichibu
Nanimono ni mo narenai tte   moteamasu
Toutotsu na asu wo
Mujikaku na yume wo

Tada ashibaya ni toonoite iku kisetsu wo furikaeru
Sou yo   kimi nashi de
Heiki na furi wa higoto umaku naru
Aruite ikeru
Sou yo   kimi nashi de

Aa

肩を並べていた陽が窓枠をすべり落ち
ノートの端を齧り取る 影模様

校舎からときどき君に似た笑い声がする
心地よさに少しだけ目を閉じれば
まるで消えたみたいに
誰もわたしを見てない
気配だけがここにある

また明日ね、って手を振るあの子も
きっと今は街の中 雑踏の一部
掠め取られた後に残された
ありふれた声で
ありがちな夢をみる

肩を並べていた陽が足元に眠るころ
目覚めた教室の隅に 星模様
目を凝らして見る
誰もいない世界は
気配だけを映して

足早に遠のく季節を拾う
君を振り返る
そっと繰り返す
擦れた文字をなぞる指先が
唐突な明日を
無自覚な夢をみている

手を振るあの子は
わたしと同じ声でさよならを

また明日ね、って手を振るあの子は
きっと今も街の中 雑踏の一部
何者にもなれないって もてあます
唐突な明日を
無自覚な夢を

ただ足早に遠のいていく季節を振り返る
そうよ 君なしで
平気なふりは日毎上手くなる
歩いていける
そうよ 君なしで

ああ
