    THE SUN IS DOWN

    The sun is down
    The sun is down
    It’s getting so dark

    落ちた太陽
    落ちた太陽
    しのびよる夜の闇

    Where are the stars?
    Where is the moon?
    The star should shine the river
    Maybe the river is even too cold for them

    星はどこに
    月はどこに
    星は川を照らすはず
    川の水は、、星にさえ冷たすぎるのかしら

    The sun is down
    The sun is down
    It’s getting so dark

    太陽が落ちて
    すべてが暗闇に

    That mirror
    Oh that mirror
    I’m throwing away the mirror in the river
    I don’t need it (no), I can walk without it (yeah)
    It’s time for me to go for a walk

    鏡よ鏡よ、すべての鏡よ
    私は 鏡は、川に捨てるわ
    必要ないもの(ないわ)
    鏡なしで歩けるもの(そうよ)
    そろそろ散歩に、、、行く時間だわ

    The sun is down
    The sun is down
    It’s getting so dark
    Does that matter?
    Yeah, I like it
    I did it in my own terms..

    かまわない?
    そう、それでいいのよ
    自分のしたいようにしたわ

    When I’m alone
    I like to walk caressed by the wind
    And nobody else

    私を優しくなでる風だけと
    歩いていたい
    ほかには誰もいらない

    The sun is down
    The sun is down
    In a secret garden

    日が落ちる
    日は落ちる
    宵闇が空気を満たす
    陽は落ちる。。
    秘密の庭に
