Water Flows and Becomes a River by BUTAOTOME
Original Romanized Translation

何を求め雲は西へ東へ 風に吹かれて どこまでも彷徨う

nani wo motomete kume wa nishi he higashi he kaze ni fukarete dokomademo samayou

Clouds, what do you seek, drifting west and east Whisked in the wind, ever wandering?

まだ見ぬ明日へ 光射す方へ 心の向く方へ 足跡残して

mada minu ashita he hikari sasu hou he kokoro no muku hou he ashiato nokoshite

On toward a yet unseen tomorrow, toward the light shining Off wherever your heart takes you, leaving your traces behind

見失わないように 迷わないように 進んでは戻る旅路だ 時に優しく時に激しく 水は流れ河となってゆく

miushinawa nai you ni mayowanai you ni susunde wa modoru tabiji da toki ni yasashiku toki ni hageshiku mizu wa nagare kawa to natte yuku

So you don’t lose sight of what’s important, so you don’t lose your way Your journey will always lead itself home. Sometimes kind, sometimes harsh, Water flows and becomes a river

あの日交わした 二人だけの約束 忘れはしない いつまでも漂う

ano hi kawashita futari dake no yakusoku wasure wa shinai itsumademo tadayou

The promise we made that day, just the two of us I will never forget, as I float ever on

こわれた方位磁石は机に置いたまま 心の向く方へ足跡を付ける

kowareta houijishaku wa tsukue ni oita mama kokoro no muku hou he ashiato wo tsukeru

My broken compass left on my desk I go wherever my heart takes me, leaving my footprints behind

道無き道を行き 雨ニモマケズ 風ニモ負ケズの旅路だ 時に愛しく 時に険しく 水は流れ河となってゆく

michi naki michi wo yuki ame ni mo makezu kaze ni mo makezu no tabiji da toki ni itoshiku toki ni kewashiku mizu wa nagare kawa to natte yuku

Travelling without a path to follow On my journey, I will not be held back by rain nor wind Sometimes lovely, sometimes treacherous Water flows and becomes a river

見失わないように 迷わないように 進んでは戻る旅路だ 時に優しく時に激しく 水は流れ河となってゆく

miushinawa nai you ni mayowanai you ni susunde wa modoru tabiji da toki ni yasashiku toki ni hageshiku mizu wa nagare kawa to natte yuku

So I don’t lose sight of what’s important, so I don’t lose my way My journey will always lead itself home. Sometimes kind, sometimes harsh, Water flows and becomes a river
