Title: Yasurageru Basho (The Place You Find Peace)
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi
the October dusk shows the city in a lonely light
I merely watch it, thinking of you.
when my love wells up into my heart from somwhere within
even without a sweater, it gently keeps me warm
why have I had to live with these breakups over and over again?
I solved a bit of that mystery when I met you.
I’ll build a lighthouse in the dark sea of loneliness
all you need do is look at it,
from the place where you are most at peace.
Why is it people haphazardly seek love?
without keeping safe that which is most important.
I don’t know what awaits me in this love?
I merely take your hand quietly and wish for it to last forever.
always together, you and me.

jyuugatsu no yuugure ga samishige ni machi wo utsusu
boku ha tada sore wo miteiru dake kimi wo omotte
doko kara ka itooshisa ga mune ni komiageta nara
