BackgroundEdit

If a 16-year-old girl Hatsune Miku lives today, what does she think and sing on her last school day? This song was born from the thought. Graduation season is coming soon. Do you have anything to regret? Live for each "moment" which never returns!

Sakura no Ame is an original song by halyosy. The lyrics are about a graduation and parting of friends. It was reoccurring in the Vocaloid Weekly rankings, but eventually lost its popularity. It became popular again when the band "absorb" performed it live at a high school graduation, reaching number 1 on the weekly rankings. It then became a popular graduation song across Japan.

This song is featured in the album Vocalodream.

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
それぞれの場所へ旅立っても sorezore no basho e tabidatte mo
友達だ 聞くまでもないじゃん tomodachi da kiku made mo nai jan
十人十色に輝いた日々が juunintoiro ni kagayaita hibi ga
胸張れと背中押す mune hare to senaka osu

土埃上げ競った校庭 tsuchibokori agekisotta koutei
窮屈で着くずした制服 kyuukutsu de kikuzushita seifuku
机の上に書いた落書き tsukue no ue ni kaita rakugaki
どれもこれも僕らの証 doremo koremo bokura no akashi

白紙の答辞には伝えきれない hakushi no touji ni wa tsutaekirenai
思い出の数だけ涙が滲(にじ)む omoide no kazu dake namida ga nijimu
幼くて傷つけもした osanakute kizutsuke mo shita
僕らは少しくらい大人になれたのかな bokura wa sukoshi kurai otona ni nareta no kana

教室の窓から桜ノ雨 kyoushitsu no mado kara sakura no ame
ふわり手のひら 心に寄せた fuwari tenohira kokoro ni yoseta
みんな集めて出来た花束を minna atsumete dekita hanataba wo
空に放とう 忘れないで sora ni hanatou wasurenaide
今はまだ 小さな花弁だとしても ima wa mada chiisana hanabira da toshite mo
僕らは一人じゃない bokura wa hitori janai

下駄箱で見つけた恋の実 getabako de mitsuketa koi no mi
廊下で零した不平不満 rouka de koboshita fuhei fuman
屋上で手繰り描いた未来図 okujou de taguri kaita mirai zu
どれもこれも僕らの証 doremo koremo bokura no akashi

卒業証書には書いてないけど sotsugyou shousho ni wa kaitenai kedo
人を信じ人を愛して学んだ hito wo shinji hito wo aishite mananda
泣き 笑い 喜び 怒り naki warai yorokobi ikari
僕らみたいに青く青く晴れ渡る空 bokura mitai ni aoku aoku harewataru sora

教室の窓から桜ノ虹 kyoushitsu no mado kara Sakura no Niji
ゆめのひとひら 胸奮わせた yume no hitohira mune furuwaseta
出会いの為の別れと信じて deai no tame no wakare to shinjite
手を振り返そう 忘れないで te wo furikaesou wasurenaide
いつかまた 大きな花弁を咲かせ itsuka mata ookina hanabira wo sakase
僕らはここで逢おう bokura wa koko de aou

幾千の学び舎の中で ikusen no manabiya no naka de
僕らが巡り逢えた奇跡 bokura ga meguriaeta kiseki
幾つ歳をとっても変わらないで ikutsu toshi wo tottemo kawaranide
その優しい笑顔 sono yasashii egao

教室の窓から桜ノ雨 kyoushitsu no mado kara sakura no ame
ふわりてのひら 心に寄せた fuwari tenohira kokoro ni yoseta
みんな集めて出来た花束を minna atsumete dekita hanataba wo
空に放とう 忘れないで sora ni hanatou wasurenaide
今はまだ 小さな花弁(はなびら)だとしても ima wa mada chiisana hanabira da toshite mo
僕らは一人じゃない bokura wa hitori janai
いつかまた 大きな花弁を咲かせ itsuka mata ookina hanabira wo sakase
僕らはここで逢おう bokura wa koko de aou

(No matter how hard it hurts me)
(I'll never say good bye)
(Your presence will always linger in my heart)
(Wanna see your smile again)

Written by an unknown artist, this version of the lyrics were used in the English version of Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- F 2nd.

Wherever our journeys may lead
We'll still be friends
It goes without saying, right?
Those glory days, no two of us alike
Give us confidence, push us forward

The track where we kicked up dust
The buttoned up uniforms we wore loose
The graffiti we wrote on the desks
All proof we made our mark

We shed a tear for every memory
That can't be relived in a graduation speech
The wounds inflicted by our youth
But maybe now we've grown up

Through the classroom window, sakura rain
Landing softly on my palm
Drawn to my heart
Let's take the bouquet we all made together
And set it free into the sky

Don't forget
Right now...
Each of us might be a single, small petal
But we're not alone

Out of all the countless schools
The miracle is that we met each other
Those sweet smiles will never change
No matter how many years pass

Through the classroom window, sakura rain
Landing softly on my palm
Drawn to my heart
Let's take the bouquet we all made together
And set it free into the sky

Don't forget
Right now...
Each of us might be a single, small petal
But we're not alone

Someday...
We'll bloom, petals spreading wide
And meet here again
