[Music] English translation of the lyrics “鳴らない目覚まし時計 (naranai mezamashi dokei; the alarm clock that doesn’t ring)”
Lyrics: Kato Kanako
English translation: tenshi_akuma and Hazy from ECI
That clock never ticks again.
Just like our current relationship.
[One cannot put back the clock.]
Even though we parted temporarily,
we got together again and had looked forward to a future together.
One day, all of a sudden,
it stopped and never tick again.
Our alarm clock.
If I could reverse the hands of the clock…
I would embrace you once again.
I would run after your lonely back I saw through a door on that day, and would never let you go.
(I understand it’s just a dream never happens in reality, but) I’m still not awake from the dream.
So please wake me up, (the alarm clock)
Time passes, oblivious (to my sufferings) like closed eyes.
Only our memories remain.
When we promised to live together,
I bought this alarm clock with you.
If I could forward the hands of the clock…
I would like to touch your slightly cold finger again.
As the streets where we have walked along changed,
did you know that our season would also change day by day?
Under the dawn sky, where are you sleeping now?
As we can’t see each other again,
you’ll forget both me and our days before long.
But I have to admit,
I’m still waiting for you, staring at the clock hands.
You can laugh at my silliness.
So please mend the clock which had stopped to tick once again.
