hMoments" translation

If you find any unnatural parts, please inform me.
-------------------------------------------------------------

Your heart began to be burned, and there was a smell of it
It was the end of your dream, and the start of everything
What you adored looked beautiful to you
It became even brighter because you couldn't reach it

The broken pieces of your dream
Sticks into my chest
Leaving the pain
That I should never forget

* If my life were transient like a flower
I would be in full bloom by your side
And after watching your smile
I would fall alone, just quietly

How was the scenery you saw
When you were pushed into an abyss of despair

Your naked heart is wandering
Having nowhere to go
And is setting sharp thorns around
For fear of being touched

** If I could flutter like a bird
I would fly to you
And offer my wing
To your wounded back

* (repeat)
** (repeat)

If I could flow like a wind
I would reach you
If I could shine like a moon
I would keep shining on you

I'll be anything
If it can make you never be seized with fear

Should it be "If I could flow like the wind"? Other than that, it sounds awesome! Kinda reminds me of "Memorial Address" for some reason

a) transient means that the flower won't stay forever, that it will wither someday - or something like that.
b) the second line must be the line including zetsubou (=despair) in the rômanji.

You are welcome.

Btw, have you heard the word, "kachouhuugetsu"?
ka = hana (flower)
chou = tori (bird)
huu = kaze (wind)
getsu = tsuki (moon)
This word has been used as a pronoun of natural beauty in Japan. There have been many many traditional poems and pictures whose theme was hana, tori, kaze and tsuki. And in this lyrics, it's quite obvious that she was inspired by this word. But, as far as I know, there has never been such lyrics as "hana no you ni ..." "tori no you ni ..." "kaze no you ni ..." "tsuki no you ni ..." in the songs of other singers. In other words, she followed Japanese tradition of beauty, but added new arrangement to it. Excellent lyrics.
