Tooi Hi no Nostalgia
words by Sakai Izumi

Japanese

Higure toki yoku futari de aruita ne
Mada kaze ga samui haru no hibi wo
Sora miage kagayaiteru ano hoshitachi
Te ni todokisou de
Sotto nobashita
Gomen ne naisho de ano ko to dekaketa koto
Sugu hanaseba yurushite kurta?

Ano hi ienakatta kotoba wa ima mo
Kono mune no naka de nemutteru
Ano toki mou sukoshi yuuki wo daseba
Kimi wo ushinawazu ni sunda kamo
It's too late
Tooi hi no
Nostalgia

Hissori to iki wo tometa ARUBAMU niwa
Togireta shiawase no
history
Futari tomo asu no yukue shiranai egao
Mujaki na mukashi mune ga itai
Yappari dame da yo
Ima demo ki ni natteru kara
Hanaseba yurushite kureta?

Ano hi ienakatta kotoba wa ima mo
Kono mune no nake de nemutteru
Ano toki mou sukoshi otona ni nareba
Koukai wa hambun de sunda noni
It's too late
Tooi hi no
Nostalgia

Ano hi ienakatta kotoba wa ima mo
Kono mune no naka de nemutteru
Ano toki mou sukoshi yuuki wo daseba
Kimi wo ushinawazu ni sunda kamo
It's too late
Tooi hi no
Nostalgia

English

At sundown, we often walked together
Through the spring days when the wind was still cold
Looking skyward, those stars were shining
Looking like you wanted to reach me
You softly extended your hand
I'm sorry for going out with him secretly
If I told you sooner, would you have forgiven me?

Those words I couldn't say that day even now
Are asleep in my heart
Back then, if I'd had a bit more courage
I wouldn't have had to lose you
It's too late
Nostalgia for days long past

In silence, in the photo album that caught my breath
The history of an interrupted happiness
We both had smiles uncaring for what tomorrow may bring
Looking back at the innocent past, my heart hurts
It's really hopeless, isn't it?
Because it still bothers you
If we had talked about it, would you have forgiven me?

Those words I couldn't say that day even now
Are asleep in my heart
Back then, if I'd been a bit more grown up
I could have lived with only half the remorse
But it's too late
Nostalgia for days long past

Those words I couldn't say that day even now
Are asleep in my heart
Back then, if I'd had a bit more courage
I wouldn't have had to lose you
It's too late
Nostalgia for days long past
