English translation

The fading night chases the clouds     with a wavering heart
From a deep sleep,     Time awakened me
The brightening sky beckoned to me

Empty memories     dissolve away with tears
So I want to gaze at the new morning [1]

Like a mirror,     though it gathers light,
The courage in my heart spills out
Escaping the burned-out forest
I want to embrace the sunrise

A wind of sadness     dries the scars
The eyes that gently reflect the past     come back to me now [2]

Locking the wandering memories into a sigh,
I want to fly into the stars

Even though briliance gathers into these plain eyes,
The warmth dissipated from my heart
Leaving behind the faded dream,
(I look) toward the distant brilliant rainbow [3]

In this blinding world, if we spread our wings
Let’s vault over everything
Like a mirror, though it gathers light,
Though the courage in my heart spills over,
I let go of the faded dream
(Going) toward the distant brilliant rainbow [3]

Japanese

うすれゆく夜を 雲が追いかける 心揺れたまま
深い眠りから 時が目をさまし
白み始めた空が 私に手まねきした

むなしい記憶は 涙でとけるから
明日(あす)を見つめたい

鏡のように 光を集めても
この胸の 勇気こぼれる
疲れ果てた 森をぬけて
朝陽を 抱きしめたい

哀しみの風は 傷跡かわかし
過去を優しく映す 瞳が今甦る

さまよう思い出は ため息の鍵かけて
星に飛ばしたい

飾らない目に 輝き集めても
この胸の 温もり消えた
色褪せてた 夢は捨てて
あざやかな 虹の彼方へ

まぶしい世界に 翼を広げたなら
すべて飛び越えよう
鏡のように 光を集めても
この胸の 勇気こぼれるけど
色褪せてた 夢は捨てて
あざやかな 虹の彼方へ

[1] asu wo mitsumetai. Specifically, the reading of 明日 as “asu” implies the next morning, rather than the more general “tomorrow” (with the more common reading of “ashita”).

[2] kanashimi no kaze wa     kizuato kawakashi
kako wo yasashiku utsusu     hitomi ga ima yomigaeru
.
      More literally, the “winds of grief” (referring specifically to the kind of grief experienced with the loss of a loved one) that “dry up scars” also bring back–to the singer’s mind–the pupils of the eyes (of a lost loved one) which gently reflected the past in them.

[3] azayaka na     niji no kanata e. There is no verb to the phrase “toward the distant brilliant rainbow”, which implies the speaker is shifting their attention away from the “faded dream” and turning, looking, or moving toward the “distant brilliant rainbow” instead.
