Natsu no hi no gogo by Eastern Youth

A Summer Afternoon
Lyrics: Yoshino Hisashi

God,
There is nothing that you do not know
and you will strike down the wicked
The midsummer sun melts my sins
I can’t see them, but they’re burned into my back

Singing cicadas and afternoon light
For as long as I live
I will remain sinful and wicked

Rain showers and wet pavement
I run down the street without an umbrella
but I can’t catch up with my shadow
I chase after it and it runs away

When I cry out for tomorrow, the clouds hang low
When I have sweet dreams, lightning flashes
Floating on the muddy river, drifting on the water
a clumsy song slowly sinks

The day grows dim, the wind dies down on the street
A light from far away, inviting,
“Look back”
from somewhere, in a low voice

The moon shines on my tangled feet
drunkenly going, going home
the feeling that I’m always heading into the dark

夏の日の午後
作詞:吉野寿

神様
あなたは何でも知っていて
心悪しき人を打ち負かすんだろう
でも真夏の太陽は罪を溶かして
見えないが確かに背中にそれを焼き付ける

蝉時雨と午後の光
まだ生きて果てぬこの身なら
罪も悪も我と共に在りて

俄雨と濡れた舗道
傘持たず走る街の角
追い付けない
追えば逃げる影に

明日を呼べば雲垂れ籠めて
甘い夢を見れば雷光る
濁り河流れ、水面に揺れる
拙い歌はゆっくりと沈みゆく

日暮れる街 風凪ぐ道
灯も遠く誘えども
『振り返るな』
どこかで低い声

月の明かり 縺れる足
酔い痴れて帰る帰り道
感じている永遠に続く闇を
