The Umbrella of Glass ~ Versailles

「The Umbrella of Glass」
Versailles

降り出した雨の調べ
愛しいあの人を想えば流れるメロディー

止めどなく締め付ける想い
息が詰まるほどに 切なく眠れない夜
鳴り止まない想い

雨が奏でてゆく 愛とあの人の詩が
この心の奥の硝子を
強く打ち付けてくるよ 叩き続けるよ
降り止む事ないままで

Ah…鼓動はまだ 水たまりの波紋
揺れてる想いに重なる

音もなく崩れてゆくのなら
せめて胸の中で聞かせて
涙の調べ
震えるその声で

雨が奏でてゆく 愛とあの人の詩が
この心の奥の硝子を
強く打ち付けてくるよ 叩き続けるよ
降り止む事ないままで

壊れてゆく心に「側にいて」と言って
鳴り止まない想いが この心を叩き奏でてゆく

一言だけ聞かせて「側にいて」と言って
もう見えなくなるから
「側にいて」と言って欲しかっただけ…

‘The Umbrella of Glass’
by Versailles

The melody of the rain that began to fall,
The melody that drifts when I recall that beloved person

Feelings that bind me endlessly,
sleepless nights so heartrending my breaths get choked up,
feelings that won’t stop echoing

The rain goes on playing a song of love and that person,*
striking hard against the glass interior of this heart,
beating down on it again and again!
Showing no sign of relenting

Ah…this heartbeat is still a ripple in a puddle
overlapping with my trembling feelings

If it is to crumble away without a sound
at least let me hear it in my heart,
the melody of tears
in that wavering voice

Say “Stay by my side” to a breaking heart,
The feelings that won’t stop echoing keep on striking and playing this heart*

Just let me hear one thing, say “Stay by my side”
Because I’ll no longer be able to see you,
I just wanted you to say “Stay by my side”…

* This “playing” is meant in the sense of playing an instrument.
