At the blackly slimy summer night, shall we talk about love?
"Beautiful, You're a fishy" The richly-colored scales are beautiful.
Stars showing it teeth and sneering swim like ranchu. Their sharpness is as if...
"Like lapis lazuli"
She was ardently in love with the color of light kimono flowing on the other side of the river. "I have to go to the other side at once" In the lunar July, the month of opening letters
"Prayers that people write down will sink into the river and they'll be stars"
Stars wriggle and increase The prayer adorned at the edge of a leaf of a bamboo reached every corner of the river
"Let's go ahead to the other side. If I can talk with you again, even the pain and the suffering are..."
And so, "the fish"
Started to swim in the river. Between the sharp stars. (Started to swim. Between the sharp stars.) While swimming, the stars tore the body of the fish and scraped the scales off the fish, and the unclosed eyes were in a puddle of blood (While swimming, the scales were scraped off, and the unclosed eyes were in a puddle of blood)
She wanted to meet him, even if she would need to sacrifice anything (I wanted to meet you, even if I would need to sacrifice anything) Even in the pain that suffers her so many times, she loved him. (Even in the pain, I love you) But this is the sad fate for the dead who suicide oneself. (But, as this is the sad fate for the dead who suicide oneself.) She could not cross "the border" called "the River of Heaven", which separates "heaven" and "earth" (I could not cross the border)
2:45 As it is called, "the River of Heaven" was a border that separates "heaven" and "earth". Foolishly, "the fish" fallen to "the earth" tried to cross the border. Prayers people write down in "this world" rise up into the "the River of Heaven", And the prayers become stars and fill the river not to make it impossible to come and go between "heaven" and "earth". "The fish" that went into "the River of Heaven" was cut up its body and died, Because of the sharpness of "As long as live" which are called "stars" and float to maintain the balance. Did it happen because of self-reproach or redemption? No one knows the truth. Only the thing left behind was a word "Tanabata".
*In some parts, Lapis doesn't sing the lyrics dispalyed on the video. The lyrics actually she sings are indicated by boldface.
*The River of Heaven is what is called Milky way in English.
