Print Lyrics


Yamaai no shiroi michi wa
Yuki no wadachi tsuresotte
Kuchita BASU (Bus)-tei no moji wa
Ikisaki sura tsutaenai

Hitomi o tojite sotto na o yobu
Setsugen no tsugai no ashiato
Togiretewa kieta basho

Ano hito ga nokoshita hisui no kamikazari
Dakishime inoru shiawase o
Tachinoboru toiki wa hitohira no nukumori
Mafuyu no sora ni irozuketa

Yamaai no zoukibayashi
Eda ni nokosu yukigeshou
Toketa mizu o sukoshizutsu
Hosoi kawa ni kaeshiteru

Katsute futari de sugoshita machi ni
Kaze wa aoi ibuki o tsurete
Fukinukeru haru chikashi

Ano hito ga nokoshita kotoba no omamori wa
Imademo mune ni ikiteiru
Tsuchi kara nozoku no wa tsukushi-tachi no atama
Hibari no koe ga hibi iteta [2]

Ano hito ga nokoshita kotoba no omamori wa
Imademo mune ni ikiteiru
Tsuchi kara nozoku no wa tsukushi-tachi no atama
Natsukashii koe ga kikoeru yo

Kumoma ni sashikomu wa
Yasashii haru no utau koe

Snowy tracks
Accompany the white mountain path...
The worn-down bus stop
No longer tells the destination...

I close my eyes and timidly call your name...
A pair of footprints on a field of snow
Stop and vanish there...

I embrace the jade hair ornament he left behind
And pray for his happiness;
My sigh ascends into the midwinter sky
And colors it with a hint of warmth.

The mountain forest
Is dusted with snow...
From its thawing, water slowly returns
To a slender stream...

The wind brings an azure breeze to the city
Where we once lived together
The wind passes through; Spring is near...

The words he left behind as a charm
Still live on in my heart;
The horsetails peek out from the earth...
A skylark starts singing... [2]

The words he left behind as a charm
Still live on in my heart;
The horsetails peek out from the earth...
I can hear a familiar voice...

This gentle singing of Spring
Descends between the clouds...
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[1] A horsetail is a green, somewhat plain-looking plant. It kinda reminds me of a weed (and for that reason, both Salinde and I are kinda wondering why Sayaka chose to write a song about them; it's not a very "romantic" plant, you know? xD). You can learn more about the horsetail plant (and see what they look like) on its Wikipedia page.

[2] For those who don't know, a skylark is a type of bird. You can learn more (and see it's picture; it's a cute lil' scruffy bird!!) on its Wikipedia page.
