Takarazuka Revue Translations

Lovers' Suicide (1979)

この世にただひとつ

ふたりだけの族立ちの朝
手を取り合ってゆく西の門
西方浄土へ向かう道
西方浄土は十万億土
まだまだ遠く果てしない道
果てしない道

この世にただひとつ それはおまえ
おまえのぬくもりが生きる証
暗い海辺にふたつの命
ひっそりと寄りそう
果てない旅路に寄る辺はないけど
やさしいこの胸が眠りの港

哀しい叫びも泣いた涙も
みんああとへあとへ過ぎた日のこと
なんてなんて深い夜
時の流れは先の世まで続いてる
あの風の音

この道を二人 どこまでも
かぎりない道を どこまでも
みつめあう命 どこまでも
呼びかわす心 どこまでも

命を見つめて 歩み続けて
あなた おまえ 歩み続けて
生きる喜び 泣けよ 泣け
歩み続けて あなた おまえ
歩み続けて 歩み続けて
歩み続けて 歩み続けて

Kono Yo ni Tada Hitotsu

Futari dake no tabidachi no asa
Te o toriatteyuku nishi no mon
Saihou-joudo e mukae michi
Saihou-joudo wa juuman'okudo
Mada mada tooku hateshinai michi
Hateshinai michi

Kono yo ni tada hitotsu, sore wa omae
Omae no nukumori ga ikiru akashi
Kurai umibe ni futatsu no inochi
Hissori to yorisou
Hatenai tabiji ni yoru be wa nai kedo
Yasashii kono mune ga nemuri no minato

Kanashii sakebi mo naita namida mo
Minna ato e ato e sugita hi no koto
Nante nante fukai yoru
Toki no nagare wa saki no yo made tsuzuiteru
Ano kaze no oto

Kono michi o futari doko made mo
Kagarinai michi o doko made mo
Mitsumeau inochi doko made mo
Yobikawasu kokoro doko made mo

Inochi o mitsumete ayumitsuzukete
Anata omae ayumitszukeru
Ikiru yorokobi nake yo nake
Ayumitszukete anata omae
Ayumitszukete ayumitszukete
Ayumitszukete ayumitszukete
Only One in This World

The morning two alone set out on a journey
Hands clasped, they make for the west gate
The road leading to the Western Pure Land
The Western Pure Land is Paradise
Such a long, long, endless road
An endless road

There is only one in this world, and that is you
Your warmth is proof that you are living
These two souls seem to silently
Approach a dark seashore
Though there is no destination to reach on this endless journey
A port of rest for their gentle hearts

Wails of grief and tears wept
All follow as day after day passes
Oh, what a deep night
The flow of time continues in that world left behind
The sound of that wind

The road these two take, 'til the end
An eternal road, 'til the end
Lives fixed together, 'til the end
Hearts calling out to each other, 'til the end

Fixed on the other's life, walking on continuously
You, you, walking on continuously
The joy of living, weep! Oh, weep
Walking on, you, you
Walking on, walking on
Walking on, walking on
