This song has the chance to be a hit if they play their cards right. It should be a single.

There is no one better than Ayu for the job. Good thinking asking her to write Pray for the film. Love it-

It's been a while since I enjoyed a song by Ayu. I'm really impressed with the lyrics and the song itself. Really nice

thanks for the lyric and translation.
the lyric is very heart wrenching.
is it about buddha's love towards a woman? that they can't be together? because he's on his way to become buddha?

There was an English article that talked about the song/lyrics a few months ago.

Quote:
The movie is a sequel to the anime movie “Tezuka Osamu no Buddha –Akai Sabaku Yo! Utsukushiku-“, which was released in 2011. TOEI ANIMATION’s producer, Kozo Morishita said after listening to the song, “I was drawn in by the magnificent melodies and her strong, vibrant voice. The lyrics wish for the happiness of a loved one and I cannot help but to link that to the compassion of Siddhartha who wished for the happiness of all people. I am grateful that this song has added new colors to the movie.”
http://www.en.barks.jp/news/?id=1000003426

The song was inspired by Buddha's story, but it's not exactly about Buddha.

The last verse gives me goosebumps. (Well it's basically also the first verse, but the way she sings the last one really hits home)

Oh my God I haven't been reduced to a state of total CRYINGMYHEARTOUTness like this since HEAVEN back in 2005.

Thank you for everyone who have provided kanji, romaji, and English interpretations!

I love the song, I just love it. One of my fav ballads by ayu. And again I remember how ayu is truly the only artist whose ballads I always love~<3
And lyrics are touching.
I love it.

Thank you!!

Quote:
If I could have just one wish come true
I would want you to remember the days we spent together
Just once is fine

If you would grant me such a selfish wish
then after that, then after that
You can erase me from your heart for the rest of time

Is it too selfish of me to promise that I'll come to find you
the next time I'm reborn into this world?
wow
