LYRICS

Mono no Aware

(Music and lyrics: Jesús Díez García)

Oh your poetry and your music

shine like neverending lullabies.

 

Soon the magic, as autumnal leaves,

will be here no more.

 

The dream fades, mono no aware,

evanescent morning dew in Gion...

Sakura petals falling, mono no aware,

soon your absence

will paint the sky in grey...

My heart will shine no more.

 

As the leaves fall, gently swirling,

purely dancing in their innocence...

 

My soul still willing sings my memories

while they vanish with me...

 

The dream fades, mono no aware,

evanescent morning dew in Gion...

Sakura petals falling, mono no aware,

soon your absence

will paint the sky in grey...

My heart will shine no more...

 

Whisper my name

when the dawn is forever gone.

Once I was keen to create,

to wish, to dream...

The dream fades, mono no aware,

evanescent morning dew in Gion...

Sakura petals falling, mono no aware,

soon your absence

will paint the sky in grey...
