Asrun Dream

GACKT MARS lyrics

長い夜を閉じ込め夢に誘われるままに
誰もいない部屋から月に祈る

消えかけの灯のように
「この胸の痛みも小さくなればいい」と呟いた

夜明けの中を手探りで歩いて
光を浴びた貴方の姿が記憶に焼きついて
今もここにいる

「胸に刻まれた君の微かな白い記憶は氷のように…」
何も残さずに側にいたかもしれないという影だけを残して

その影も少しずつ音もたてず
静かに消えていく

無邪気な顔で僕に微笑む
何気無いそんな仕種が
今になれば強がって見せてた
貴方の優しさ

祈ることの儚さに気付いた僕は
貴方に何もできなくて

「胸に刻まれた君の微かな白い記憶は氷のように…」
何も残さずに側にいたかもしれないという影だけを残して

その影も少しずつ音もたてず
静かに消えていく

長い夜にもう貴方は見えない…

Shutting away the long night, tempted by dreams
from an empty room I pray to the moon

Like a light flickering out
I whispered, “I wish the pain in my heart would shrink too”

Stumbling, groping through the dawn
The image of you bathed in light is burned into my memories
Even now you are here

“The faint, pale memories of you carved into my heart are like ice…”
Leaving only shadows that say you might have been by my side without leaving a trace

Even those shadows are quietly disappearing little by little without a sound

You smile at me with an innocent face
Now I realize your casual gestures
were feigning strength
That was your kindness

Realizing the futility of praying
I can’t do anything for you

“The faint, pale memories of you carved into my heart are like ice…”
Leaving only shadows that say you might have been by my side without leaving a trace

Even those shadows are quietly disappearing little by little without a sound

In the long night, I can no longer see you…

  1. 残して nokoshite “leaving” is written but never sung, making the sung version of this line more like “Only shadows that say you might have been by my side without leaving a trace”

Notes: This song is based on Banana Fish, one of GACKT’s favorite manga. It is from Ash’s (also known as Aslan, or “Asrun” in this song) point of view, about his (also male) love interest Eiji.
