COSMIC RUNAWAY

Lyrics: Jun Taguchi
Composition: Daisuke Asakura
Performed by: Daisuke Asakura Pred. AXS
Translation & romaji by: teddiursa

bureeki no himei ga
sukuranburu ni kodamashite
heddoraito no ryuusei ga
nagaretekieru mayonaka
ashita otona ni naru shounen to shoujotachi ga
saigo ni miru ano hoshi wa
ichiban hakanai negai

Brakes screech, echoing across the scramble crossing
Headlights paint a shooting star, passing by and vanishing into the dead of night
It's the most short-lived wish
And the boys and girls — the adults of tomorrow — are the last to see it

tsumetai asufaruto no uchuu wo
bokura wa samayoinagara
soredemo dokoka e
tadoritsukeru to shinjiteta
namida ni tachifusagaretemo

Floating around aimlessly in an outer space made of cold asphalt
We still believed we could make it somewhere
Even if our tears got in the way

konya kimi wo saratte
utsuro na kono genjitsu kara
dokomademo kimi wo saratte
itsuka mita ano mirai made

Tonight, I’ll take you away
Away from this empty, meaningless reality
I’ll take you away, anywhere you want to go
Until we reach the future we hoped to see someday

tooku kimi wo saratte
yuuki ga moetsukiru mae ni
kanashimi no juuryoku yori mo supiido wo agete
Cosmic runaway

I’ll take you away, far away
Before all of my courage runs out
Accelerating faster than the sorrows of gravity
Cosmic runaway

garasu mado hikisaku
noizu no you na itami wo
daremo ga mune ni kakushite
nigotta yozora miageru

Everyone gazes up at the hazy night sky
While hiding a pain inside
Like the sound of a window pane shattering into tiny pieces

tsumetai kimi no yubi wo tsutsumeba
subete no nazo ga toketeiku
hajimete mitsumeta hi no
ano natsukashisa no imi
aenai setsunasa no imi

If I hold onto your cold fingers
Everything begins to make sense
Like my fond memories of the day I first laid eyes on you
And how the thought of not being able to be with you hurts

konya kimi wo saratte
shikumareta kono sekai kara
dokomademo kimi wo saratte
futari mita yume no basho made

Tonight, I’ll take you away
Away from this world where everything's already set in stone
I’ll take you away, anywhere you want to go
Until we reach the place we've always dreamed of

tooku kimi wo saratte
tokimeki wo wasureru mae ni
motomeau inryoku yori mo supiido wo agete
Cosmic runaway

I’ll take you away, far away
Before we forget the feeling of our racing hearts
Accelerating beyond our gravitational attraction
Cosmic runaway

You want to I want to We want to dream
You want to I want to We want to love

You want to I want to We want to dream
You want to I want to We want to love

konya kimi wo saratte
utsuro na kono genjitsu kara
dokomademo kimi wo saratte
itsuka mita ano mirai made

Tonight, I’ll take you away
Away from this empty, meaningless reality
I’ll take you away, anywhere you want to go
Until we reach the future we hoped to see someday

You want to I want to We want to dream
You want to I want to We want to love

You want to I want to We want to dream
You want to I want to We want to love
