Another one of my favorite songs--and another song where I honestly don't know what the lyrics are about. Ah well, such is the fate of a Hirasawa fan...

平沢進 - "広場で"


このまますべては凍る
あんな高く聳えた
塔には何もなく
夜更けの広場で見た
燃えるようなデジャブに
キミを訪ねよう

夜が来る飛び起きろ
遅れをとってはダメ
遅れをとってはバツ

冬のように生きても
黄金の舟は来る
声を忍ばせて
遠くから夢見て来た
何トンもの土を掘り
今日にはまた埋めて

舟が来る飛び起きろ
遅れをとってはダメ
遅れをとってはバツ

大きい戸は開く 限りない永遠の
そこまで そこまで 見えはじめたよ

大きい戸は開く 限りない永遠の
そこまで そこまで 見えはじめたよ

大きい戸は開く 限りない永遠の
そこまで そこまで 見えはじめたよ

大きい戸は開く 限りない永遠の
そこまで そこまで 見えはじめたよ

大きい戸は開く 限りない永遠の
そこまで そこまで 見えはじめたよ

大きい戸は開く 限りない永遠の
そこまで そこまで 見えはじめたよ

小さく見えていたはず
あんな高く聳えた
塔から舟は行く
冬のように生きても
まんべんなく陽は照り
影は花のよう

朝が来る飛び起きろ
遅れをとってはダメ
遅れをとってはバツ


Hirasawa Susumu - "Hiroba de"

Kono mama subete wa kooru
Anna takaku sobieta
Tou ni wa nanimo naku
Yofuke no hiroba de mita
Moeru you na dejabu ni
Kimi o tayuneyou

Yoru ga kuru tobiokiro
Okure o totte wa dame
Okure o totte wa batsu

Fuyu no you ni ikitemo
Ougon no fune wa kuru
Koe o shinobasete
Tooku kara yume mite kita
Nanton mo no tsuchi o hori
Kyou ni wa mata umete

Fune ga kuru tobiokiro
Okure o totte wa dame
Okure o totte wa batsu

Ookii to wa hiraku kagirinai eien no
Soko made soko made miehajimeta yo

Ookii to wa hiraku kagirinai eien no
Soko made soko made miehajimeta yo

Ookii to wa hiraku kagirinai eien no
Soko made soko made miehajimeta yo

Ookii to wa hiraku kagirinai eien no
Soko made soko made miehajimeta yo

Ookii to wa hiraku kagirinai eien no
Soko made soko made miehajimeta yo

Ookii to wa hiraku kagirinai eien no
Soko made soko made miehajimeta yo

Chiisaku miete ita hazu
Anna takaku sobieta
Tou kara fune wa yuku
Fuyu no you ni ikite mo
Manben naku hi wa teri
Kage wa hana no you

Asa ga kuru tobiokiro
Okure o totte wa dame
Okure o totte wa batsu




Hirasawa Susumu - "In the Square"


At this rate everything will freeze over*
In the tower that rose so very high
There's nothing
I saw it late at night in the square**
In this burning déjà vu
I'll go visit you

Night is coming, leap to your feet!
You better not fall behind
You'll be punished if you fall behind

Even if I live like it's winter
The golden boat will come
With a subdued voice
I dreamed of it as I came from far away
Digging up many tons of earth
And filling up the hole again today

The boat is coming, leap to your feet!
You better not fall behind
You'll be punished if you fall behind

A giant door opens up  A door of limitless eternity
That much, that much has come into sight!

A giant door opens up  A door of limitless eternity
That much, that much has come into sight!

A giant door opens up  A door of limitless eternity
That much, that much has come into sight!

A giant door opens up  A door of limitless eternity
That much, that much has come into sight!

A giant door opens up  A door of limitless eternity
That much, that much has come into sight!

A giant door opens up  A door of limitless eternity
That much, that much has come into sight!

It should have appeared small
But that tower rose so very high
And the boat leaves from the tower
Even if I live like it's winter
The sun will shine without exception
The shadows are like flowers

Morning is coming, leap to your feet!
You better not fall behind
You'll be punished if you fall behind


Translation Notes:
* The line "すべては凍る" ("everything will freeze") reminds me of the "凍る星" ("freezing planet") in the P-Model song "Enola." In "Enola" someone in a rocket ship contacts a freezing planet after learning of its tragic fate. "In the Square" was released on an album in 1994, and "Enola" was released on an album in 1997--would it be too crazy to think "Enola" could be an outsider's view of what happened to the world in "In the Square"? ^^

**The "square" is a town square or a plaza. I like to think that maybe this is the same square as in "Phonon Belt" (from 2009), since both songs describe a place with a town square and a giant tower.
