Wasurenai kara

Because I Won't Forget

Lyrics, Written, Sung by: Gackt Camui
Translated by: Mina-P (Email: Minako@senshigakuen.com)
Version 1.10

Note: This is the (amazingly enough) ELEVENTH single from Gackt-san. Go Gackt~! This single, like many recent Gackt offerings, has a strong pop sound that's inundated with tons of amazing guitar. The thing that I love about this single is that Gackt really shows off his voice in this one. While he can sing beautifully in most any range, he has an absolutely stunning richness that works amazingly well with lower ranges. This gives the song a fullness that many pop songs don't (and can't, honestly) achieve.


zattou o toorinukete hikari no michibiku basho e
oto no nai joukei wa nagaretsuzukeru

Pass through the crowd, to the place where the light leads you
As the soundless scenery is flowing past you


ryoute o hirogete subete o tsukamou to shita
sabitsuita senro no hate ni
nanika ga aru to shinjiteitai

You opened your hands and were about to hold everything within your grasp
At the end of the rusted track
I want to believe that something is there


kono mama toki ga tomareba ii to
arifureta kotoba de negai o kometa
dore dake kimi o mitsumeteitemo
ano koro no you ni boku ni hohoemikakeru
wasurenai kara...

"I hope time stops like this,"
I wished with my simple words
No matter how much I gaze at you
Because I won't forget you smiling at me
Like you did back then...


genshoku no yurameki wa me no mae ni ukande wa kieru
mabuta o tojitemo ima wa ano basho ni mou nido to kaerenai

The wavering colors float in front of my eyes and disappear
Even if I close my eyes right now, I can't go back there again


kono mama toki ga tsuzukeba ii to
arifureta kotoba de negai o kometa
ima nara kimi ni akaseru darou
boku no naka ni aru sunao na kono omoi o
iroase wa shinai kara...

"I hope time continues like this,"
I wished with my simple words
Only now I can tell you
Because the true feelings inside of me
Won't just fade away...


utsuroke na manazashi de naze boku no koto o mitsumeru no?
mou sugu boku mo yuku yo
sou subete ga ima soko ni aru kara

Why are you looking at me with that empty look?
I will be going soon, too
Yes, because everything's there now


kono mama toki ga tomareba ii to
arifureta kotoba de negai o kometa
dore dake kimi o mitsumeteitemo
ano koro no you ni boku ni hohoemikakeru

"I hope time stops like this,"
I wished with my simple words
No matter how much I gaze at you
You smile at me, like you did back then


ano hi ano toki no mama tsuzukeba ii to
arifureta kotoba ni negai o kometa
ima nara kimi ni akaseru darou
boku no naka ni aru sunao na kono omoi o
iroase wa shinai kara...

"I hope things continue like that day, like that time,"
I filled my wish into simple words
Only now I can tell you
Because the true feelings inside of me
Won't just fade away...

Not like the words make any sense if you haven't heard the song, anyway. Romanized and translated into English very badly by Mina-P, with desperately needed help, as always, by Mako-chan.
