Ghost City Tokyo
(Yuurei Tokyo) Music: Ayase Illustration: Cogecha The lights of the brilliant shining city Shine down on me in stark contrast They mix with the neon colours changing and
escaping from the spaces between those buildings I trade my time and this world And sink into the night I make my way home on the last train And the reflection I see in the glass windows is Not the me that I dreamt of It’s a person who looks like he’s about to start crying A person alone in the darkness,
a person who is simply lost A sorrowful person It’s fine Someday it will all be fine How many days I’ve thought so,
that have piled up on each other But even today,
the me who fades into the Tokyo scenery all alone Seems like a ghost Even as I grow used to losing I just need that wish I had forgotten When I remembered it
The tears fell Simply because this city is Way too dazzling It’s harsh, I laugh while sighing Amidst these decadent days
Thoughts of that day flash back in my mind By the time I realise it, my Logic’s open till the morning Time and time again, putting my words to music Even as I grow used to losing I just need those days I had forgotten But even so, even before that
That I can even think of them is Because you’re here Hey In such a lonely city Hey The lights of the brilliant shining city Shine down on me in stark contrast In front of that building, I stretch out my hand
Tracing the view I dreamt of that day I trade my time and this world And call for tomorrow Even as I grow used to losing These important feelings that I haven’t lost – When I held them close to myself,
I think my tears fell suddenly Because I still want to Keep living in this city I wonder if it’s the same for you
