Donten

By: DOES

Namari no sora
Omoku tarekomi
Masshiro ni yodon da
Taiyoo ga kudake te
Miminari wo togaraseru

Hyururi hyururi
Hikui tsubame ga
Hachi no ji nazo tte
BIRU no tani wo kakeru
Mou jiki ni yuudachi ga kuru

Donten no michi wo
Kasa wo wasure te
Aruku kanojo wa
Ame ni obie teru
Node boku mo
Yowamushi burasage te
Sora o aogu

Achira kochira
An yo wa joozu
Koohii ya ni yotta
Hitoyasumi kiwametara
Kaerenai kaeranai

Donten no michi wo
Burari burabura
Aruku ni nin wa
Ashigaru no gotoku
Kiken suki no
Dareka no furi wo suru
Shooshin monotomo

Donten no michi wo
Kasa wo wasure te
Aruku kanojo wa
Ame ni obieteru
Node boku mo
Yowamushi burasage te
Sora wo aogu

Translation

The leaden sky is a heavy sign
The sun is broken up by the bright white dregs
The ringing in my ears is sharp

Quickening, quickening
The low-flying swallow makes a figure of eight
As it flies over the valley of buildings
An evening shower is on its way

On the path of cloudy weather, a girl who forgot her umbrella
Is fearfully walking in the rain
Because I am also stuck in cowardice
I look up to the sky

Over there, over here: a skillful toddling walk
Crowding around the coffee shop, looking for a final rest
I can’t go back, I can’t go back

On the path of cloudy weather, aimlessly swinging back and forth
The two of us are walking like foot soldiers
A timid heart is a disadvantage to someone who likes danger

On the path of cloudy weather, a girl who forgot her umbrella
Is fearfully walking in the rain
Because I am also stuck in cowardice
I look up to the sky

Here’s the video:
