Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
風に揺らいで ひらり舞い散る kaze ni yuraide hirari maichiru
君の肩ごしに紅一葉 kimi no katagoshi ni akahitoha
ただ寄り添えば わかりあえると tada yorisoeba wakariaeru to
悲しみは空に消えるだけ kanashimi wa sora ni kieru dake

月明かり照らしてた 遠くの笛の音 御神楽太鼓 tsukiakari terashiteta tooku no fue no ne o-kagura taiko
ありふれた幸せは 思えばこんなに素敵でした arifureta shiawase wa omoeba konna ni suteki deshita

いつか話そう 出会えた喜び itsuka hanasou deaeta yorokobi
淡い愛しさ 知らずにいた awai itoshisa shirazu ni ita

風に揺らいで ひらり舞い散る kaze ni yuraide hirari maichiru
君の肩ごしに紅一葉 kimi no katagoshi ni akahitoha
ただ寄り添えば わかりあえると tada yorisoeba wakariaeru to
悲しみは空に消えるだけ kanashimi wa sora ni kieru dake

穏やかに迫りくる 季節は朧げ 誘いし火影 odayaka ni semarikuru kisetsu wa oboroge sasoishi hokage
躓いて迷いながら 進んでゆくのも悪くないよ tsumazuite mayoinagara susundeyuku no mo warukunai yo

今を漂い 願いよ届けと ima wo tadayoi negai yo todoke to
絶えた祈りを 重ねるだけ taeta inori wo kasaneru dake

忘れられない 思い出がある wasurerarenai omoide ga aru
君の肩ごし 桜紅葉 kimi no katagoshi sakura momiji
強く儚く 世界を埋めて この愛を 永久に捧ぐ tsuyoku hakanaku sekai wo umete kono ai wo towa ni sasagu

風に揺れて ひらり舞い散れ kaze ni yurete hirari maichire
今宵闇夜を 紅く染めて koyoi yamiyo wo akaku somete
ただ寄り添って 抱かれていたい tada yorisotte dakareteitai
悲しみが 空に消えるまで kanashimi ga sora ni kieru made

Written by an unknown artist for the video game Project DIVA X.

The moonlight shone down
In the distance, the sound of a flute
And festival drums
This commonplace happiness
Was such a wonderful thing
Let's talk someday  About the joy of our meeting
About how  We never knew fleeting love
Swaying in the wind  Fluttering down
Over your shoulder I see a single red leaf
Just come close  And we'll understand each other
Our sadness will disappear into the sky
Gently, it draws near
The season shrouded in mist  The beckoning firelight
Venturing out lost and stumbling
Isn't such a bad way to proceed
May my drifitng wishes reach you
Cut-off prayers  Piling up
There are some memories  I can't forget
Over your shoulder  A red sakura leaf
Strong, yet fleeting  They bury the world
I'll offer up this love  For eternity
Swaying in the wind  Fluttering down
Tonight the dark of night  Is colored red
I just want to be close
And be held in your arms
Until our sadness disappears into the sky
