BENI - "MEMORY"

dokoka de kiita merodii
natsukashii kaori
kagi wo kaketa kimochi

ano toki kidsukenakatta no?
aisareru imi

mou kimi wa inai

moshimo ano koro ni modoretara futari
ima mo waraiatteta kana
taisetsu na mono ga sugu soba ni atta
kagayaiteta hibi no Memory
kokoro shimetsukeru

mou ichido deatte sunao ni aishiatte
makimodosetara ii no ni ne One more time
kawaranai mono ga aru to shinjiteta
omoide dake ano hi no mama

moshimo ano koro ni modoretara futari
ima mo waraiatteta kana
taisetsu na mono ga sugu soba ni atta
kagayaiteta hibi no Memory
iroasenai mama

BENI - "MEMORY"

A melody I heard somewhere
And a nostalgic scent
Called up the feelings
I'd locked away

Could I not realize back then
What it meant to be loved?
I want to hold you
But you're no longer here

If we could go back to that time
I wonder if we would be smiling together now
The important things were right there
The memory of those radiant days
Breaks my heart

I fell into the habit
Of running away from
What was right in front of me
I was afraid of the eventual "goodbye"

Why does happiness always
Slip through my fingers
And disappear
As soon as I get a hold of it?

If only we could turn back time
Meet up again and love each other honestly one more time
I believed we had something everlasting
But only my memories will last forever
As that day

Who are you thinking of
Right now in that town?
"I want to see him..."
I wished to the night sky

If we could go back to that time
I wonder if we would be smiling together now
The important things were right there
The memory of those radiant days
Will never fade
