Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

My strong, yearning, desperate, feelings are captured in this maze.

“Sayonara no Kioku” (Memory of Goodbye) music and lyrics by Hanako Oku.

(I’m just using this YouTube post to share the song.   All other posts of the song were taken away by Record Industry Weasels.  The YouTube link here has Vietnamese subs, but don’t let that bother you. Thank you to YouTube user Le Vy for posting the song even if he has a different use. )

English lyrics:

Why did I let go of your hand that was joined with mine

I could only concentrate on walking the path to dusk

Will I someday forget your tears of that time

I am hearing the accumulated voices of time somewhere

I was unable to say that I like you

That day we were crying

One by one, memories are added

This is the last memory—the memory of our goodbye

What should have been projected on the sky we found

I feel like now I can understand what I didn’t realize then

Was I searching for you in the box called happiness?

In my heart, pain is still wandering

I was unable to say that I like you

Even though we’ve hugged so many times

One by one, memories are added

This is the last memory—the memory of our goodbye

Still unable to move, I can only point to the two vanishing paths

I was unable to say that I like you

That day we were crying

One by one, memories are added

This is the last memory

The memory of our goodbye

— Thank you to WordPress blogger Yoroshiku.  Son, “we hardly knew ye”. I hope you return, and translate more great songs into English.  

Also see the Romaji lyrics dedicated here.

Notice to PonyCanyon’s  Record Industry Weasels — I said “dedicated” — not  “reproduced”.  So there.

Romanji lyrics

Tsunaideita kimi no te wo boku wa naze hanashiteshimatta

Yuuhi ga ochiteyuku michi tada hitasura ni aruiteita

Ano toki no kimi no namida wo itsuka wasureteyuku no kana

Kasaneteita jikan no koe ga doko ka de kikoeteiru

Kimi ga suki da to iezu ni ita

Ano hi no bokura wa naiteita

Mata hitotsu zutsu omoide ga fueteku

Kore ga saigo no kioku bokutachi no sayonara no kioku

Futari de mitsuketa sora ni nani wo utsuseba yokatta no ka

Ima nara wakaru ki ga suru ano toki wa kizukenakatta

Shiawase to iu hako no naka ni kimi wo sagashiteita no kana?

Boku wa mada kokoro no oku ni itami ga samayotteru

Kimi ga suki da to iezu ni ita

Nando mo dakishimeteita no ni

Mata hitotsu zutsu omoide ga fueteku

Kore ga saigo no kioku bokutachi no sayonara no kioku

Toozakaru futatsu no michi tada yubisashite boku wa ugokenai mama

Kimi ga suki da to iezu ni ita

Ano hi no bokura wa naiteita

Mata hitotsu zutsu omoide ga fueteku

Kore ga saigo no kioku

Bokutachi no sayonara no kioku

Starlight:  It took seven years for this starlight to reach my world.  The light illuminated a scarred and barren planetary surface.  Diffused and scattered, the light exposed an eroded, but dry, ancient river course … Is this a way out?

  1. That’s an image I’ve never seen before. Is that the back of Koi Tegami / 恋手紙 ?
