Where the willows grow

from by Richard Lewis

/

lyrics

a shadow of a former soul
green grow the rushes o
he moves among the empty rooms
and wild blows the wind

he wrestles with impermanence
green grow the rushes o
and broken days that don't make sense
and wild blows the wind

雨ニモマケズ
風ニモマケズ
雪ニモ夏ノ暑サニモマケヌ
丈夫ナカラダヲモチ
慾ハナク
決シテ瞋ラズ
イツモシヅカニワラッテイル

his eyes are damp with memories
green grow the rushes o
a pocket full of autumn leaves
and wild blows the wind

she used to catch them as they fell
green grow the rushes o
and make a wish, a magic spell
and wild blows the wind

アラユルコトヲ
ジブンヲカンジョウニ入レズニ
ヨクミキキシワカリ
ソシテワスレズ
野原ノ松ノ林ノ蔭ノ
ミンナニデクノボウトヨバレ
ホメラレモセズ
ソウイウモノニ
ワタシハナリタイ

there's a place I know
where the willows grow
you know it too
you know it too

you want to go
where the river flows
of course you do
of course you do

I hope you know
that when you go
you'll always be
a part of me

through every leaf
on every tree
and every root
inside the earth

you want to go
where the cypress grow
of course you do
they forced you to

the southern sun
will burn your skin
you mustn't cry
you mustn't cry

just spread your wings
into the sky
and learn to fly
and learn to fly

through every leaf
on every tree
you'll always be
a part of me
