Kukikodan – Tenkuubashi ni

‘Tenkuubashi ni’, from Kukikodan’s ‘Yoru wa Sono Manazashi no Saki ni Nagareru’ album. Kukikodan also performed the OP song for the anime Aoi Hana.

Tenkūbashi (Tenkuubashi) is an actual bridge in Tokyo, and even has a metro station named for it. Presumably it is so called because from it you can see airplanes taking off at the nearby airport. The bridge itself, however, is said to be quite nondescript. I’ve translated Tenkūbashi to “Skyarch Bridge” despite it being a real name because the place it refers to won’t have much bearing on a non-Japanese person’s interpretation of the bridge’s name in the song.

天空橋に
歌:空気公団

天空橋に
夜が
落ちた
僕は今すぐ
迎えに
いくよ
たまにいいとこ
みせたくなる
きれいな花を
持って来たんだ

だれかをまつひと
さがしてみつけたひと
だきあうわかれるひと
あえなくなるひと

天空橋に
夜が
落ちた
僕は今すぐ
迎えに
いくよ
いつも通りを
抜けてみたら
知らないふたりに
会える気がする

天空橋に
夜が
落ちた
僕は今すぐ
迎えに
いくよ
いつも通りを
抜けてみたら
知らないふたりに
会える気がする

会える気がする

High on Skyarch Bridge
Performed by Kukikodan

High on Skyarch Bridge,
Night falls
Like a stone
Coming from afar, to
See you, I
Go
Often I’ve imagined
Showing you its lights
So I’ve flowers to
Greet you with, tonight

They come, they go, these ones who wait
They come, they go, the ones who seek and find
They come, they go, embracing their last time
They come, and go, and never meet.

High on Skyarch Bridge,
Night falls
Like a stone
Coming from afar, to
See you, I
Go
Once we begin to
Walk outside the box
Maybe we’ll see an
Us we never knew.

High on Skyarch Bridge,
Night falls
Like a stone
Coming from afar, to
See you, I
Go
Once we begin to
Walk outside the box
Maybe we’ll see an
Us we never knew.

An us we never knew.
