CLANNAD Image Vocal Album: Sorarado – Tooi Tabi no Kioku

Memory of a Distant Journey
Vocals: Riya
Lyrics: Riya
Composition: Orito Shinji
Arrangement: Takumaru
Adapted from original BGM track “Yukinohara”

A reflection appears on the water’s surface
The color of the sky is bright

The atmosphere shimmers
To the end of silence

In the white scenery, there’s an ancient memory
For now, I simply
Overlap it with many wishes
The fallen world shines, too

The clustered days pass by
And the blueness of the sky becomes far

My perfectly clear heart
Reflects the silence

There’s a fleeting dream in the blinding snow
For now
My faded consciousness is simply faraway, too
I’ll drown in the fallen world

In the white scenery, there’s an ancient memory
For now, I simply
Overlap it with many wishes
The fallen world shines, too

I listen closely to the eternal sound
Only loneliness was left behind
I think of you, in that immense distance
I touch reality and it shines


Tooi Tabi no Kioku
Vocals: Riya

Minamo ni ukabu kage
Sora no iro wa sayaka ni

Tayutau taiki
Seijaku no hate made

Shiroi keshiki   inishie no kioku
Ima wa tada
Kasane yuku amata no negai ni
Kashiida sekai mo kagayau

Tsukaneta hibi sugite
Sora no aosa wa tooku naru

Masumi no kokoro
Seijaku o utsushite

Hakanai yume   furishikiru yuki ni
Ima wa tada
Usuraida ishiki mo haruka
Kashiida sekai ni obooru

Shiroi keshiki   inishie no kioku
Ima wa tada
Kasane yuku amata no negai ni
Kashiida sekai mo kagayau

Eien no oto ni mimi o sumasu
Sekibaku dake ga nokosareta
Anata o omou   sono houtei
Utsutsu ni furete   kagayau

  1. Oh my God I love this song. THANK YOU for translating it 😀 I’ve been looking for the translated lyrics for forever!

  2. This song is… is just so amazingly perfect, it brings me tears everytime I focus on it. So deep, so nostalgic, yet so magnificent. After watching “After Story” and understanding the message behind that perfect masterpiece of anime, I came back to this song and feel like “remembering what -Life- is all about”.
    Thank you, thank you so much for your translation and effort, we really appreciate it.
