Mr Children: Hana no Nioi (The Scent of Flowers)
Hana no Nioi (The Scent of Flowers)
I wish it would reach you, oh I wish,
even though this voice could never reach you
How I wish it could.
Thank you and Goodbye
I could never fully express this in words
but my heart gushes with them.
Lead by the scent of flowers
I reach out to the soft light
filtered through the trees overhead
it felt like we were holding hands through that warmth
I want to believe, oh how I want to,
I want to believe in the warm miracle in the hearts of man
I want to believe, oh how I want to believe
that a person’s life is the light that makes another’s shine.
even if this is goodbye forever,
I can hear you breathing
I just know that in some other form, with that same smile
we’ll meet again.
no matter what tragedies are buried in these places
there’s no doubt the seed of happiness is planted there.
when I’ve amassed enough tears shed,
I’ll water that seed with them.
I made my longing into a melody
when the wind carries away my whistling
somewhere, far away, with eyes smiling
you’ll be there listening.
even if this really is goodbye
I hear your warm breathing
I just know that in some other form, with that same gaze
we’ll meet again.

Todoku hazunonai koe datoshitemo
Anata ni todoketai
Kotoba dewa iitsukusenai kedo
Kono mune ni afureteru
Hana no nioi ni michikarete
Awai komore bi ni te o nobashitara
Sono nukumori ni
Anata ga te o tsunaide itekureteru youna ki ga shita
Hito no kokoro ni aru atatakana kiseki o shinjitai
Dare no inochi mo mata dareka o kagayakasu tame no hikari
Eien no sayonara o shitemo
Anata no kokyuu ga watashi niwa kikoete iru
Betsu no sugata de onaji hohoemi de
Anata wa kitto mata ai ni kite kureru
Donna higeki ni umareta basho ni demo
Shiawase no tane wa kanarazu uwatteru
Kobareta ochita namida ga jyuuroippai ni nattara
Sono tane ni mizu o makou
Hito koishisa o merodii ni shita
Kuchibue o kaze ga hakonde ittara
Tooi dokoka de
Anata ga sono me wo hosomete kiite iru
Hontou no sayonara o shitemo
Atatakai kokyuu ga watashi niwa kikoete iru
Betsu no sugata de onaji manazashite
Anata wa kitto mata ai ni kitekureru
