'Melody' lyrics - Kanji, Romaji, Translation

Thanks for Foyuki for posting the booklet scans in the LOVE news thread so I could figure out the tricky parts of the lyrics I couldn't pick up by ear! The kanji lyrics are a transcription of what's written in the booklet. Translation by me.

Kanji
Spoiler:

陽が暮れる瞬間の
空がずっと苦手だった
あまりに綺麗すぎて
まるで全ての終わりみたいで

君といたあの日もまた
その時間がやって来て
僕は何故か涙とまらなかった

ただ黙って君は隣にいて
涙拭ってくれてた

君に送る僕からのメロディー
いつの日か2人で奏でられたらと

君に送る僕からのメロディー
上手じゃなくていいから
ずっと流れていて欲しい

いつからか空気のように
風が流れるように
君の左側から見える景色が指定席で

例えば何の言葉も 交わさなくてもいいよ
瞳を覗くだけで全部わかるから

ありのままでいられる事の
心地よさ知らなかった

君にずっと届けたいメロディー
僕らだけのペースで
そんな風にこれからも

例えばどうにもならない
悲しいメロディーしか聴こえない
そんな日の君でも どんな君でも
変わらすに愛おしいよ

君と僕の幸せのメロディー
2人で育ててそっと強く守って

君と僕の最後のメロディー
どうか穏やかで優しい音でありますように

君に送る僕からのメロディー

君にずっと届けたいメロディー


Romaji:
Spoiler:

hi ga kureru shunkan no
sora ga zutto nigate datta
amari ni kirei sugite
marude subete no owari mitai de

kimi to ita ano hi mo mata
sono jikan wa yatte kite
boku wa naze ka namida tomaranakatta

tada damatte kimi wa tonari ni ite
namida nugutte kureteta

kimi ni okuru boku kara no melody
itsu no hi ka futari de kanaderaretara to

kimi ni okuru boku kara no melody
jozu janakute ii kara zutto nagareteite hoshii

itsukara ka kuuki no you ni
kaze ga nagareru you ni
kimi no hidarigawa kara
mieru keshiki ga shiteiseki de

tatoeba nan no kotoba mo kawasanakute mo ii yo
hitomi wo nozoku dake de zenbu wakaru kara

ari no mama de irareru koto no
kokochiyosa shiranakatta

kimi ni zutto todoketai melody
sukoshi zutsu futari de kanadeteikou ka

kimi ni zutto todoketai melody
bokura dake no pesu de
sonna fuu ni kore kara mo

tatoeba dou ni mo naranai
kanashii melody shika kikoenai
sonna hi no kimi de mo donna kimi de mo
kawarazu ni itoshii yo

kimi to boku no shiawase no melody
futari de sodatete sotto tsuyoku mamotte
kimi to boku no saigo no melody
douka odayaka de yasashii oto de arimasu you ni

kimi ni okuru boku kara no melody

kimi ni zutto todoketai melody


Translation:
Spoiler:

I always disliked the sky
at the moment the sun disappears
It's far too beautiful,
almost like the end of everything

The time finally came
for us to spend our days together again
I don't know why my tears wouldn't stop

You were by my side, not saying a word
and would wipe away my tears for me

I will send you a melody
hoping that we can play it together someday

I will send you a melody
even if it's not the best
I hope it will be heard forever

Before I knew it
all the scenery I could see past you
floated past us like the air and the wind
As if it was reserved especially for us
**

We can say anything
without exchanging words
Because I understand everything
just by looking into your eyes

I never knew the kind of comfort
that being with you brought me

Shall we play it together little by little
this melody that I hope will always reach you

I hope this melody will always reach you
We'll play it at our own pace
Just like this, from now on

Even if nothing becomes of us
And you can hear nothing but a sad melody
The way you were that day, or any day
is unchangingly precious to me

This is a melody of our happiness
Together we nurtured it gently and protected it with all our strength

This is our final melody
I pray this gentle and calm sound will always remain

I will send you a melody

A melody that I hope will always reach you

**THAT FRICKING VERSE WAS SO DIFFICULT TO TRANSLATE. Anyone have some input to offer?

The lyrics remind me of...Who a bit...
In Who... she sends her voice, but in Melody, she sends a melody. a song 2 u. a song 4 u.

(and in Microphone, she sings about the perfect melody which she doesn't want to meet yet...so, this melody in question is still imperfect...and hence, Love is full of imperfections?)

Ayu is really good with these kind of lyrics, i just kind of wish sometimes she would write something more about life than just love, love, love, love love love love.......x1223456435453654 ...... cuz then i just need to pretend I never read the translation cuz it annoys me...because i can't really get inspired by those kind of words whatsoever..*shrugs* But she's good!

would you be translating the other 2 songs? i like your translation.

i'm glad she's writing in a slightly different style... it's reminiscent of her ASFxx/LOVEppears/Duty days... it's great she's not ALWAYS writing about wings and roads ^_^

I'm kinda understand about other member post, when Ayu talks about love, its always had this three things: tears, protect, and separation.... Kinda boring indeed yet it is a nice lyric. But boring.
Thanks for the lyrics anyway.
