[romaji & translation] Last Links

Mezame to tomo ni mado ni me o muke
Yawarakaku tsuyoku sashikomu hikari o
Mita ra nazedaka namida koboreta
Kikoeta n darou tashika ni kanjita n darou

* Kyou no konna sora nara kitto umaku
Aruite ikeru ki ga suru n da

Sou bokura wa kono aoi hoshi o
Fumishimete ikite ku n da yo
Kono sekai ni hirogari tsuzukeru
Subete no kanashimi wa iyasare naku tomo

Utsumuita nara tachidomare ba ii
Susumu beki de wa nai to iu aizu na n darou

Kyou no sora wa takaku too sugiru kara
Umaku kokyuu ga deki nai yo

Demo bokura wa kono aoi hoshi o
Fumishimete ikite ku n da yo
Kono sekai ni habikori tsuzukeru
Subete no ikari wa tomerare naku tomo

* (repeat)

Ima bokura wa kono aoi hoshi o
Fumishimete ikite ku n da yo
Kono sekai ni mada nokotte iru
Ai o tashika ni dakishime nagara

Kono sekai ni mada nokotte iru

Ai wa tashika ni koko ni nokotte ru
--------------------------------------------------
I woke up, looked to the window
Saw the soft and strong ray of sunlight through it
And somehow, tears rolled from my eyes
Maybe because I heard something, I felt something for sure

* I feel I can surely walk on well
Under this kind of sky today

Yes, we live on
Putting our feet down on this blue Earth
Even if all the sorrow continuing to spread in this world
May not be healed

When you bend your head, you can stop
Maybe because it's a signal that you should not advance

I can't breathe well
Because the sky is high and too far today

But we live on
Putting our feet down on this blue Earth
Even if all the anger continuing to take root in this world
Can't be stopped

* (repeat)

Now we live on
Putting our feet down on this blue Earth
Firmly holding love in our arms
That still remains in this world

Love that still remains in this world

Definitely remains here

I really love the lyrics. Its like..the entire song is a story. I love lyricists who do that...playing with the words in choruses to make them slightly different yet mean different scenarios. (if you dunno what im saying...its something like Beyonce's If I Were A Boy)

now the question is...WHY LAST LINKS?
i love how she said blue star..

i have no idea but this song somehow relates me to the atmosphere of ecology issue.

Does Last Links refer to the last bond people have to our Mother Earth?

Oh so beautiful! I feel like she is talking at the same time about world's problems to expresr her inner sorrow. It's like hope and self acceptance...

Thanks a lot masa!

Thank you so much masa!

When I first heard this song I loved the arrangement. Now with the lyrics, I think it may possibly be the best track on the album. These lyrics make my eyes water, they're so powerful.

The lyrics are beautiful and I can't wait to hear the song!
Since I've read the title "Last Links" for the first time, I was curious about the song and I'm sure, it will be wonderful.

The lyrics are bittersweet; sad, but they also give you hope! VERY powerful!
I love it!


THANK YOU for the translation!

I really, really like this. It sounds like something I would write! X) But really, this sounds great. I can't wait to hear the actual song! "We live on" is a favorite phrase/philosophy/whatever (lol) of mine. So I'm in love.

Thanks, masa!

This is the song. This is the song on the album that has the lyrics that touch me the most and feel like they were written for me.

I love this.
