Kagawa Ryo – Cosmos
—————————————————————————————
Cosmos [コスモス]
Lyrics/Music/Singer : Kagawa Ryo [加川良]
—————————————————————————————

I am a complete nondescript person
Though my envy never envies
myself and any other before
figuratively speaking
I look like Cosmos
I know where I stand
and when I bloom
 
There is the flower
that blooms in winter
that flowers
under the burning summer sun
that blooms in the flower bed
that blows in the wilderness
while swaying in the wind
 
There is the flower
that sleeps calmly
with murmur of brooks
that prays in the sea wind
with the sounds of sea rumbling
on the top of the bluff
 
I look like Cosmos
I am not a good-looker
I look like Cosmos
I know I have a poor smell
 
Though I am passionate
about blooming
in a my bid to be culled
by some traveler at a whim
by some infant on a lark
 
If I could turn over
some new plant life
I want to born the plant
that blooms in mid-spring
and look at the other spring flowers
I would witness myself
I know it’s the fate that it is also
 
I look like Cosmos
though my envy never envies
myself and any other before
figuratively speaking
I look like Cosmos
I pretend to have understood
where I stood and when I bloomed
until today

あたい コスモス
この身 恨んだことはない
あたい コスモス
弁えているつもり
 
冬に開く花 あれば
夏の日差しに燃える花
垣根の中で咲く花や
野辺に揺れる花もある 
 
小川の夢の囁きを
聞いて眠る花がある
海鳴りを見下ろして
震え祈る花もある
 
あたい コスモス
器量佳しじゃないけれど
あたい コスモス
拙い香りと知りつつも
 
旅のお方の気紛れに
幼子の悪戯に
摘んでもらえる日もあると
それを励みに咲いてます
 
もしも生まれ変われたら
春に咲く花たちを
この目で眺めたい
これもまた定めでしょ
 
あたい コスモス
この身 恨んだことはない
あたい コスモス
弁えて来たつもり
