Yotaka no Yume

The Nighthawk’s Dream

Romaji Lyrics English Translation

Yoru no yami ni magire
Bokura teikuu de tobitsuzuketa
Tsuki wa nani mo shirazu
Hikuku engine ga hibiiteta

Soko ni donna hito ga
Kurashi waraiatteiru no desho
Soko de donna yume ga
Umare hagukumareteita no desho

Chizu ni shimesareta na mo yomenai machi
Konya mo seigi wo mihata ni

Ikitoshi ikeru mono subete
Yakitsukusu guren no hi ga
Mashita ni nagareru
Yotei doori ni kishu agete
Danyakuko no futa tojite
Shouri no senkai
Nani mo minai nani mo kikazu
Nani mo nani mo nani mo nani mo

Maru de iwau you ni
Hanabi sasayaka ni uchiageteru
Ikari, nageki, kuyami
Soshite nikushimi wo uketomeru

Asahi yori hayaku mabushii hikari ga
Totsuzen glass wo kudaite

Ikitoshi ikeru mono subete
Onaji iro shinku no chi ga
Mune kara nagareru
Chikara naku nigiru soujuukan
Furimuki sakendemite mo
Dare mo kotaenai
Tsuki ga tooku kasumi kieru
Haha mo chichi mo tomo mo kimi mo

Umareta kuni ga chigau nara
Konna sabaku no asayake
Mizu ni ikiteyuku
Akatsuki no sora ni yotaka ga
Hagurete mou modorenai
Nagareboshi ni naru

Ikitoshi ikeru mono subete
Onaji iro shinku no chi ga
Inochi wo sodatteru
Donna seigi wo kazashitemo
Nagarederu shinku no chi wo
Tomerare wa shinai
Yume wo miteta nagai yume wo
Nagai yume wo nagai yume wo

We’re flying in low
In the darkness of the night
But the moon shines on unaware
Of the low hum of our engines

I wonder what the people there are like
How they live, and what makes them smile
I wonder what the people there dream of
And the way they yearn to make it all come true

The town on the map had a name we couldn’t even read
But tonight we fly for a righteous cause

And everyone I see before me
Has a hail of burning fire
Pumped into their chests
Mission complete, it’s time to pull away
Ceasing fire and disengaged
To turn around and head back home
So we don’t see them die, so we don’t hear their screams
So we don’t see a thing, so we don’t hear a thing

It almost seems celebratory
The way the sky’s all lit up
But I just feel anger, regret and grief
Until the hatred takes hold

Before the crack of dawn, an explosive light fills the sky
And with a bang, the glass shatters all around me

And everyone I see before me
Has the same crimson blood
Pumping through their chests
My grip slacks on the controls
And I scream back to those I love
But there’s no reply to be heard
As the moon shines on high, and the smoke clears aside
My parents gone, my friends gone, and you’re gone too…

If I’d been born in another land,
I’d have gone my whole life
Without seeing the sun rise like this
The nighthawks fly across the desert dawn
Never to return to this scorched earth
Fading like the night stars

And everyone I see before me
Has the same crimson blood
Granting them life
And no matter how righteous your cause may be
When that blood spills out of you
Its flow cannot be stopped
I had this dream, such a long dream
Such a long dream, such a long dream

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
