Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu Ending Theme – Himawari

Sunflower
Vocals: Imai Chihiro
Lyrics: Aoyagi Minako
Composition: Omote Seiji
Arrangement: Takaki Hiroshi

To go against the swarms of school uniforms
That streamed out in dusk
I stepped on the pedals of my bike
With all my might

On the side of the grounds after school
Slipping through the chain-link fence
The sunflowers I found last year
Looked up at the sky
More proudly than they did last year

If they’re made out of tears
So that they won’t fold, so that they won’t wilt
Then will something change tomorrow?
Like those sunflowers
Swaying in the rain on a rainy day
Even if I grow straight up
And sway today, it’s okay

The day when I was finally able to ride
My bike all by myself
I was happy just for the number
Of scrapes I kept getting

Even though I wanted to cry, I couldn’t
Is that what you call being an adult?
The sunflowers that turned away
Are quietly closing
While they can’t bloom, so they can’t bloom

If I can shed tears
So that I won’t fold, so that I won’t be defeated
Then I can laugh more today than I did yesterday
Like the blooming sunflowers
Blown by the wind on a windy day
With an unrelenting feeling
Swaying like me…

If they’re made out of tears
So that they won’t fold, so that they won’t wilt
Then will something change tomorrow?
Like those sunflowers
Swaying in the rain on a rainy day
Even if I grow straight up
And sway today, it’s okay


Himawari

Tasogare ni nagaredashita
Seifuku no mure ni
Sakarau yo ni   jitensha no
Pedaru   omoikiri funda

Houkago no gurando no waki
Kanaami o kugutte
Kyonen   mitsuketa   himawari wa
Kyonen yori   hokorashige ni
Sora o miageteta

Orenai you ni   karenai you ni
Namida ni dekita nara
Ashita wa nanika ga kawaru kana
Ame furu hi wa   ame ni yureru
Ano   himawari mitai ni
Massugu   se o nobashite
Kyou wa yurete itatte, ii yo

Jitensha ni   hitori-kiri de
Yatto noreta hi wa
Kurikaeshita   surikizu no
Kazu dake   ureshikatta ne

Nakitai no ni   nakenaku naru
Koto   otona to iu no?
Kao o somuketa   himawari wa
Sakenakute   sakenai mama
Sotto tojite yuku

Orenai you ni   makenai you ni
Namida   nagaseta nara
Ashita wa kyou yori waraeru ne
Kaze fuku hi wa   kaze ni fukare
Saku   himawari mitai ni
Utsumukanai kimochi de
Watashi rashiku yuretete…

Orenai you ni   karenai you ni
Namida ni dekita nara
Ashita wa nanika ga kawaru kana
Ame furu hi wa   ame ni yureru
Ano   himawari mitai ni
Massugu   se o nobashite
Kyou wa yurete itatte, ii yo

  1. Thanks a lot for translating it, even though it took time.
    It looks quite different than I thought but it’s good.
