Romaji

kokoro ni fuku kaze wa ima mo mada kienai
mouichido dake kikitakatta
ano yasashii uta o

hareta sora o miyage namida koboreru
yume ga kudakechitta youna setsuna sa
dakedo hoo o naderu kaze wa yasashii
tooku kieta hito no atatakasa no youni

donna chiisana koto mo oboeteru kono mune niwa
ano hi kuchizusandeta MELODY ga ima hirogaru no

*kokoro ni fuku kaze wa ima mo mada kienai
mouichido dake kikitakatta

ame ni utare ochita konoha atsumete

itsuka sora o toberu toki o shinjite
ude no naka de nemuru kotori tachi no youni

kanashii mu no nakade naiteiru watashi ga ita
ano hi daita omoi wa yasashisa o oshietano

kokoro utsusu mizukagami wa ima yureteru
mouichido dake aitakatta
ano yasashii egao

English

The wind blowing in my heart hasn't stopped, even now.
I just wanted to hear it once time,
that tender song.

Looking up at the once-clear sky, my tears overflow.
The pain, as if my dreams were shattered.
But the wind brushing against my cheeks is gentle,
like the warmth of an unseen person in the distance.

No matter how small a thing, my heart remembers,
the melody you hummed that day, spreads even now.

* The wind blowing in my heart hasn't stopped, even now.
I just wanted to hear it once time,
that tender song.

The leaves that fell in the rain gathers,
and carry you to the far side of the rainbow.
I believe the time will come when you will fly,
like the small birds sleeping in your arms.

I was crying in a sorrowful dream.
The feelings I embraced that day taught me tenderness.

The water reflecting my heart is swaying.
I just wanted to see it once time,
that tender smile.

*Repeat

Kanji

心に吹く風は今も まだ 消えない
もう一度だけ 聞きたかった
あの 優しい歌を

晴れた空を見上げ 涙こぼれる
夢が砕け散ったような 切なさ
だけど頬を撫でる 風は優しい
遠く消えた人の 暖かさのように

どんな小さな事も 覚えてる この胸には
あの日口ずさんでた メロディが今 広がるの

*心に吹く風は今も まだ 消えない
 もう一度だけ 聞きたかった
 あの 優しい歌を

雨に打たれ落ちた 木の葉集めて
虹の向こう側へ 運んであげる
いつか空を飛べる 時を信じて
腕の中で眠る 小鳥たちのように

悲しい夢の中で 泣いている 私がいた
あの日抱いた想いは 優しさを 教えたの

心映す水鏡は 今 揺れてる
もう一度だけ 逢いたかった
あの やさしい笑顔
