Utada Hikaru
Deep River

点と点をつなぐように
線を描く指がなぞるのは
私の来た道それとも行き先

Ten to ten wo tsunagu you ni
Sen wo egaku yubi ga nazoru no wa
Watashi no kita michi sore tomo ikisaki

What the finger drawing a line
Connecting two points is tracing
Is the road I followed here or the one I'm going to follow.


線と線を結ぶ二人
やがてみんな海に辿り着き ひとつになるから
怖くないけれど

Sen to sen wo manabu futari
Yagate minna umi ni tadoritsuki   hitotsu ni naru kara
Kowakunai keredo


The couples bound by two lines
All eventually reach the sea and become one,
So I'm not scared, but. . .


いくつもの河を流れ
わけも聞かずに
与えられた名前とともに
全てを受け入れるなんて
しなくていいよ
私たちの痛みが今 飛び立った

Ikutsumo no kawa wo nagare
Wake mo kikazu ni
Ataerareta namae to tomo ni
Subete wo ukeireru nante
Shinakute ii yo
Watashitachi no itami ga ima   tobitatta


We're lost in the flow of many rivers,
Without asking why,
It's okay if you don't
Accept everything
Along with the name you were given.
Our pain just took flight.


剣と剣がぶつかり合う音を
知る為に託された剣じゃないよ
そんな矛盾で誰を守れるの

Ken to ken ga butsukariau oto wo
Shiru tame ni takusareta ken ja nai yo
Sonna mujun de dare wo mamoreru no


This is not a sword you trust
Merely to hear the sound of two swords clashing.
Who are you going to protect with that hypocrisy?


何度も姿を変えて
私の前に舞い降りたあなたを
今日は探してる
どこでも受け入れられようと
しないでいいよ
自分らしさというツルギを皆授かった

Nandomo sugata wo kaete
Watashi no mae ni maiorita anata wo
Kyou wa sagashiteru
Dokodemo ukeirerareyou to
Shinai de ii yo
Jibun rashisa to iu tsurugi wo minna sazukatta


Today, I'm searching for
The you who has changed forms so many times,
And alighted in front of me.
You don't have to accept
Just anywhere,
Everyone receives a blade called being yourself.


時には流れを変えて
何も持たずに
与えられた名前とともに
全てを受け入れるなんて
しなくていいよ
潮風に向かい鳥たちが今飛び立った

Toki ni wa nagare wo kaete
Nanimo motazu ni
Ataerareta namae to tomo ni
Subete wo ukeireru nante
Shinakute ii yo
Shiokaze ni mukai toritachi ga ima tobitatta


In time the flow changes,
Without possessing anything,
It's okay if you don't
Accept everything
Along with the name you were given.
As I faced the sea breeze the birds took flight.
