Itowokashi released this single: ‘Yomotsu Hirasaka/Twilight (黄泉比良坂/トワイライト)’ on 2 September 2014. According to UtaiteDB, this single is event-limited, which means it is only purchasable at events or live concerts (unavailable for mail-order or other means). So, I will never get my hands on it unless they resell it again in the future. It contains two new songs, and I will use this opportunity to fan over the first song, ‘Yomotsu Hirasaka’.
When I listened to the beginning of the song, I am confused. Those drumming that usually be heard at the festival… all I could think about was ‘Eh… what?’ until the melody pouring in… and then I am stunned. I can’t comment but feel how suddenly my chest hurt. And then tears were on my eyes.
What’s with this song?
When it ended… I was going crazy. “WHAT THE HECK, PLAY IT AGAIN!!!” Yep, basically, I really fall in love with this song. A beautiful sad song that pictures vividly the feeling of loss with its melody. I really think this song could be an OP or ED of some anime with slice of life genre in an historical background. I can picture it… wow. wow. Oh no, I’m crying again… The lyric is really beautiful, and so is the song. I cannot translate it well but… I somehow know. I don’t think I’m wrong in this.
Also, Itou Kashitarou is the one who made this song. I really want to hug him so bad! Again, every beautiful song has to connect to summer. Hahaha… or it’s just me I guess *sob*
Disclaimer: I do not own this gorgeous song. It belongs to Itowokashi (or Itou Kashitarou).
Lyricist and Composer (作詞・作曲) ： Itou Kashitarou (伊東歌詞太郎)
|Natsu no hizashi wa yagate
Yuugure no ake ni somaru deshou?
Kaze no oto sarasara to nari
Izanagu yami e…
|Yume yabure owari naki yomi no tabiji e to
Sasayaka na chigiri wa marude inochi yo…
|Miokuru senaka ni “Sayounara” tsuge
Kotonoha ni negai wo komete
Okuribi ni takushita ai no iro
Nidoto wa kaeranu hibi
|Kono mi kuchihateru toki mo
Kawaranu ai wo chigai mashou!
Tatoe anata ga somuku tomo
Namida misezu ni
|Ikiru to wa
Tokoshie ni taegataki sadame
Shinuru to wa
Tsumi fukaki wagami no hate
|Anata no senaka wa tooi mama de
Kieyuku inochi no tomoshibi
Yomotsu hirasakari kieta chigiri
Itoshi kimi e!
|Yuugure ni somaru sora wa miezu ni
Tokoshie no yami ni shizumuwa
“Sayounara” itoshiki hibi no shirabe
Nidoto wa kaeranu hibi!
