さよなら、まぼろし || Goodbye, Illusion

さよなら、まぼろし
sayonara, maboroshi
Goodbye, Illusion

Lyrics: Mizuki (瑞葵)
Music by: Itsue (イツエ)
Group: Itsue (イツエ)
Release date: 2013

Requested by: Runixzan

The translated title on the Soundcloud page is “Goodbye, maboroshi”, so consider that to be the official title.

Putting that aside, this song is great! One of the things I love the most about translating song lyrics is running into awesome groups like this one that I wouldn’t have heard of otherwise.


さっさとさよならしようよ、まぼろし
煙に巻かれて消えてゆくのなら
言葉なんていらないよ
煙草くゆらせ 物思い
ただ君にあこがれただけ

sassa to sayonara shiyou yo, maboroshi
kemuri ni makarete kiete yuku no nara
kotoba nante iranai yo
tabako kuyurase mono omoi
tada kimi ni akogareta dake

It’s about time we said goodbye, illusion,
If you’re just going to disappear, wrapped in smoke.
I don’t need words—
I smoked my cigarette, deep in thought.
I was just longing for you.

生きてれば、傷も痛む
だから痛いほど君を抱きしめる

ikitereba, kizu mo itamu
dakara itai hodo kimi wo dakishimeru

Through just living, my wounds ache
So I will hug you so hard it hurts.

だけどいつまでも君はまぼろし
だからいつまでも、消えない

dakedo itsu made mo kimi wa maboroshi
dakara itsu made mo, kienai

But you are an illusion. You will be so forever.
Because of this, you will never fade away.

怪我なんていつか治る
涙だって流れる
気づいたんだ君は
本当にまぼろし

kega nante itsuka naoru
namida datte nagareru
kidzuita nda kimi wa
hontou ni maboroshi

My wounds will heal someday
And even my tears will flow away.
I became aware
That you were really an illusion.

終わりある物語はとても幸せだ
現実はいつだって死ぬまで続いていく
触れて壊れるくらいなら
綺麗な終わりを迎えたかった まぼろし

owari aru monogatari wa totemo shiawase da
genjitsu wa itsu datte shinu made tsudzuite iku
furete kowareru kurai nara
kirei na owari wo mukaetakatta maboroshi

Tales that have an end to them are so happy.
Indeed, reality continues until we die.
Rather than simply touch you and break you,
I wanted things to come to a beautiful end, illusion.

朝焼けで染まる 今日も外から
新聞が届く音 正しい朝
手をかざした空は脈を打つように
オレンジと青が混じり太陽は昇る

asayake de somaru kyou mo soto kara
shinbun ga todoku oto tadashii asa
te wo kazashita sora wa myaku wo utsu you ni
orenji to ao ga majiri taiyou wa noboru

The rich red of sunrise colours the horizon, and from outside
I hear the newspaper being delivered. It’s a proper morning.
I hold my hands toward the sky, and it seems to throb
As orange and blue mix together. The sun rises.

さっさとさよならしようよ、まぼろし
ただ ただ 君にあこがれてただけ

sassa to sayonara shiyou yo, maboroshi
tada tada kimi ni akogareteta dake

It’s about time we said goodbye, illusion.
I was just longing for you.
