Snow Smile : スノースマイル: English Translation : Bump of Chicken


Another one of my favorites!

Snow Smile by Bump of Chicken

It’s a really good thing winter is cold
Because there's no better reason
To invite your chilly left hand
Into my right pocket

“I wish it would snow!” you say with a pout
Well, if it doesn’t go the way you like
Don’t kick away the fallen leaves
We can still fall down in them
Why do you look like you’re having so much fun
Even though you’re angry?

In the still beautiful, untouched carpet of snow
Together we carve parallel lines of footprints
Even if this dream story never comes true
Smiles will overflow
This snowless road

There’s a little trick to our walking together
Your stride is so small
I look at the scenery as long as I can
Looking back at the scenery of you

Into the still dry curtain of the sky
Together we chime an orchestra of footsteps
Look! Before this dream story comes true
You will smile for me
I know it

Snow Smile

In the still beautiful, untouched carpet of snow
Together we carve parallel lines of footprints
Yes, even if you don't wish for this dream story
You taught me to smile
On the path that I take

I’m so happy we met
The same season has come around again
In my right pocket, the memory I put away
Just as I thought, I put it away and walk
On a path without you

Hello !

I'd like to sub the PV of Snow Smile and Supernova so I was wondering if I could use your translations. Of course, I'll credit you.

Thank you =D
