YOASOBI – アンコール (Encore)(English Translation)

Year: 2021

Lyrics:

They say the world is going to end tomorrow.
They say I won’t be able to meet you anymore.
When we waved goodbye and said let’s meet again someday,
It won’t come true, you know.
I guess it can’t be helped.
They say the world is going to end tomorrow,
If that’s the case, then,
Until then, let’s continue,
To play the sounds we like.

Surrounded by partial darkness,
In a place I don’t recognise, I wake up.
This is a world with no night,
A world that ends with today,
On such a day, I encountered you.

‘Do as you like’,
You left me with just that,
And went somewhere.
The sounds of you went further and further.
Then, I was back to being by myself,
In the stagnant air.

I simply think back to those ordinary days,
in this world where we wait for the end to come.
The tough past, the awful memories,
Even the melodies we can’t forget.
It’s goodbye to them all with the passing of today.

Driving the car by myself,
in the streets where human activity has disappeared,
Today, where it all ends tomorrow,
What do I wish for?

What do I pray for?

Unexpectedly from somewhere,
What I heard faintly,
Was the sound of the piano,
A sound of the distant past.

Doing as I am invited,
Matching our breaths,
The sounds which overlapped.
They were pleasant,
Nostalgic,
And many of them overflow.

The memories that I have put a lid on and shut in without
noticing,
The memories that the sounds we play have brought out,
The piano that stopped by the time I noticed,
The tears that flowed before I knew it.
Let’s continue playing.

I simply think back to those ordinary days,
In this world where we wait for the end to come.
The tough past, the awful memories,
Even the melodies we can’t forget,
It’s goodbye to them all.

Here now, we simply play the sounds as we like,

On this last day, in this town with only the two of us,
The sounds we play while simply thinking of those ordinary
days,
Overlap and resonate.

They say the world is going to end tomorrow.
They say the world is going to end tomorrow.
If the world doesn’t end,
And tomorrow comes,
Hey, at that time, let’s be together…
How silly of me.
