Natsume Yuujinchou / 夏目友人帳 Ending Theme

I love this song, the words are really beautiful. It goes so well with Natsume Yuujinchou too~

irozuku nishizora ni
sashikomu hitosuji no hi
yuudachi no ame agari ni
kizuku natsu no nioi

The western sky, changing in colour
A single beam of sunlight shines in
After the evening rain
I recognise the fragrance of summer

hishimeku hikari ga terasu
omoi ni mimi wo sumaseba
kikoeshi tomo no omokage

The colliding beams of light shine
If I listen carefully to my thoughts,
I can hear the traces of my friend

natsu yuuzora kaori datsu
azayaka na sugisarishi hibi
kokoro no mama warai atta
ano natsu no omoide yo

The summer evening sun gives off a fragrant scent
The vivid days that have gone by
Guided by our hearts, we laughed together
The memories of that summer

irozuku hoozuki ni
nigiwaishi natsu matsuri
nari hibiku suzu no ne ni
mune no oku ga yureru

The winter cherry, changing in colour
A crowded summer festival
At the sound of the echoing wind chimes,
my heart sways

sazameku higurashi ga naku
kodachi wo hitori arukeba
yomigaeshi hi no omokage

The noisy cicadas cry
When I walk through the trees alone,
I can recall the traces of those days

sotto boku no
mimi moto de sasayaita
natsukashii hibi
ano no koro mama kawarazu
ima mo kokoro no naka de

They whispered softly
close to my ears
Those nostalgic days
Unchanging from that time,
even now, within my heart

hito toshite mamoru mono
hito toshite manabu koto
naki sofu ga tsumugu
taisetsu na kotoba wa kono mune ni

Something I protect as a person
Something I learn as a person
My late grandfather imprinted
these important words in my heart

natsu yuuzora kaori datsu
azayaka na sugisarishi hibi
ano koro no mama kawaranu
shimi wataru nukumori yo

The summer evening sun gives off a fragrant scent
The vivid days that have gone by
Unchanged from that time
The spreading warmth

ano natsu no omoide yo

The memories of that summer
