Hikaru Utada Breaks Hiatus To Release "Evangelion 3.0" Theme




"Sakura Nagashi" (Flowing Cherry Blossoms)

[Cover art + translated lyrics]

Lyrics (translated by Utada herself):

Watching flowers just blossomed fall
"Too early, this year" you said,
In disappointment, regret
And you were beautiful

If you could see me now
I wonder what you would think
Me, living without you

Everybody finds love
In the end

If you could hear the newborn's cry,
Sound and healthy
Ringing in the town you protected
I know you would be so pleased
The footsteps that continue after us

Everybody finds love
In the end

I can't believe that I'll never see you again
I haven't told you anything yet
I haven't told you anything yet

Watching flowers just blossomed fall
The trees stood by, helpless

However great the fear, I will not look away
If at the end of everything, there is love


The song was released to iTunes (Japan) and Recochoku today. "Sakura Nagashi" will have a physical release in the form of a DVD single out on December 26, 2012.
