Song Lyric Sunday: Seasons

Once again, the theme for Song Lyric Sunday is “Seasons”.

For me, all I think of when I hear the word “seasons” is the fact that time moves on without ever stopping. The seasons pass by and come again without ever stopping. Just like the start of each new day, the start of a new season is akin to the beginning of a new chapter. For me well, I don’t experience any season other than summer here in Singapore, but I can tell when a new season is coming when more anime is released. Anyways, again about seasons, it shows the continuous march of time and how we should not keep to ourselves whatever we may want to say to those close to us. Just as seasons come to an end, we never know when we will reach our conclusion. Just as we have etched into our memories the happenings within each season, we should also relieve ourselves of our thoughts and feelings at least to those closest to us. Before it is too late.

Thus, my song choice for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is “Haru Natsu Aki Fuyu” by sumika.

English Lyrics

Cherry blossom season prediction was in vain
Heavy rain scattered their petals
April breeze
It feels a bit cold and night is still so long

The remaining of dampen firework sticks
are waiting for their turns inside the closet
I’m sensitive to smoke
But your happy face was coming to my mind

I carefully read the book
Trying to imitate your habit
And before I realized,
Autumn was fast asleep
on my lap

I hate being in cold
But we share warmth
Until it’s uncommon for
me to not hate
this freezing season

“Thank you!”
All of them are still here
“I’m sorry.”
“I miss you so much”
Still remain as they were before

I’m so happy
I’m so lonely
But I left them all behind
I’m yearning for you
I’m suffering without you
But I can’t say it anymore

Once the wind blows,
I’ll recall you again
Spring, summer, fall, winter
will turn around

Taste of food
Color of flower
Natural sweet scent
It’s not number
that you’ve etched
into my sense of touch
but the warmth of your body
Even in my eardrums Ah
It’s so special Ah
You’ve changed all my five senses
into another thing

I know, it’s too late
This and that still left unsaid

“Thank you!”
All of them are still here
“I’m sorry.”
“I miss you so much”
are growing in my heart

I’m so happy
I’m so lonely
I’ve put them into words
I’m yearning for you
I’m suffering without you
have become so precious for me

Once the wind blows,
and you’ll make me rush
I shall go
It’s my turn now

Even thousands times
Even ten thousands times
It’s fine to recall it over and over
As a preparation for the next season
that will come thousands times more
Ten thousands times more

Spring comes
Summer comes
Autumn comes
Winter will come

And then, it’s spring again
And the next, it’s spring again

With your new self,
in the spring that finally comes

My thoughts are always fleeting. Writing is the only way I can remember all the things that once crossed my mind.

  1. When I clicked on this link, I thought you were going to mention Ayumi Hamasaki’s “Seasons”. But the Sumika song is a nice surprise. I never really heard her before.
