Oreshika, “Hana” Lyrics

Just needed to throw up an update. My weekend was kind of a waste as far as clearing my to-do list, so maybe I’m just overwhelming myself. I wish I was faster at everything in life. It’s kind of depressing sometimes how you can just churn away at stuff and not make a dent. Anyway, enough with that.

Here’s some lyrics to the main theme from the first OreShika game, which as everyone knows, wasn’t released west. However, a mix of this song (“Hana, Meguru”) is used in the second game in a marching sequence you can view after clearing the main storyline. As someone who wasn’t familiar with the song beforehand, I thought it was very pretty in the march and finding it online in full was very delightful a discovery too.

(quick confession: despite being a fan of Shoji Masuda in other places like Linda and AbaPri, I only bought Bloodlines because I thought Abe No Seimei was kinda hot.)

Song / Lyrics / Composer: Kihara Ryoko

花 花 どんな花
こぼれるように咲き誇る
花 花 どんな花
匂い優しく
Flower, flower, which flower
blooms in all its glory to be seen?
Flower, flower, which flower
has that gentle scent?

森の小道に 川のほとりに
それとも誰かの庭に咲く一輪の花
それとも花籠に束ねられて
A lone flower blooms on the forest trail,
along the riverbank, or in someone’s garden,
lest it be bundled in a flower basket.

うつろいやすく はかない生命
それぞれに美しく 誰のためでもなく
ただひたすら 咲いて咲いて 散るまで咲いて
An ever-changing, gentle, fleeting life
each is beautiful, uniquely blooming, blooming,
blooming for no one else until it falls.

花 花 どんな花
匂いたつほど麗しく
花 花 どんな花
心やさしく
Flower, flower, which flower
is so fragrant, it’s beautiful?
Flower, flower, which flower
has that gentle heart?

比べないで ほかの誰かと
それぞれに美しく 誰のためでもなく
ただひたすら 咲いて咲いて 散るまで咲いて
One cannot be compared to someone else,
each is beautiful, uniquely blooming, blooming,
blooming for no one else until it falls.

花 花 どんな花
匂いたつほど麗しく
花 花 どんな花
心やさしく
Flower, flower, which flower
is so fragrant, it’s beautiful?
Flower, flower, which flower
has that gentle heart?

花 花 どんな花
あなたらしく咲き誇って
花 花 どんな花
生命燃やして
Flower, flower, which flower
blooms in all its glory as you do?
Flower, flower, which flower
burns with life?
