River Low by Tokumaru Shugo (River Low / トクマルシューゴ)

Now I see by the river a staircase that shouldn’t be there
Though now I feel like I can go back
Though now I feel like I’m on time
No matter how I add it up, it’s never enough
Now I see on the other side of the dam
The same old scenery I always see
Oh, inundated by water the inverted moon sinks
River low

今なら見えるはずのない川の畔の階段に
今なら戻れる気がするけれど
今なら間に合う気がするけれど
いくつ数えても足りない
今なら見えるダムの向こうには
くだらないいつもの景色が見える
嗚呼 水が溢れ 裏返る月が沈む
River Low
