Nokotteru (It Remains)
Kayoko Yoshizawa

At the ticket gate in a distant face
I felt like I was criticized for staying out all night
In my clothes from the evening before
The one-piece dress I frolicked about in is radiant

A sky in which it seems I may catch a cold
The town seems like it has passed through the seasons in one night

You’re still with me, you still remain inside me
Here, here, here and everywhere it’s you
But the busy morning carries you out
Don’t go, don’t go, don’t go, don’t go
I still want to live yesterday

When I search for my key at the bike stands
My nails the color of shaved ice peel off
Fake sunflowers seem just like me
Summer is already bleak

Someone put out their cigarette but
the fire inside me rises up like a beacon and continues burning

It still remains in my ear, that rough sounding voice
I wanted to listen to you close by forever, forever
Ah, the feeling of the kisses on the back of my neck fade
Don’t go, don’t go, don’t go, don’t go
In the midst of the fall winds growing familiar with the city
I still lived yesterday
