TOGAWA JUN UNIT – THE HALF-LIFE OF MIKA TESHIGAWARA [TESHIGAWARA MIKA NO HANSEI] (1985)

lyrics by JUN TOGAWA | music by YOICHIRO YOSHIKAWA

The title to this one could mean either ‘half-life’ or ‘half death.’ Take your pick.

Translation and notes under the cut:

Do you know? About how, when my wailing ceases
I will create a long river from my tears
And wither and die and return to the soil
And when I turn to sand I’ll dance –
That sweet resignation
That sweet resignation

I pray that before you dance with the sand
When I’ve already returned to the soil
Sprinkle your favorite seeds on me
And the fruit that blossoms from the flowers
Eat it –
That sweet resignation
That sweet resignation
