Japanese

星の光遠く 硬る人はない
全ての祈り 全ての想い
ライララライトゥラ

月蝕の空に
乗せてみても
止まらぬ雨に 願い破れた
ライララライトゥラ

夢を運べ 見知らぬ蝶よ
愛を運べ 見果てぬ故国へ

風ばかり見止だてる アルトゥカの蝶よ
ああ今宵も 飛べない羽根の
夜は長い

ライララライトゥラ ライララライトゥラ

島の昔遠く語る人はない
全ての祈り 全ての怒り
ライララライトゥラ

銀色の船に 乗せてみたが
止まらぬ海に 願い破れて
ライララライトゥラ

夢を運べ 見知らぬ神よ
愛を運べ 見果てぬ故国へ

風ばかり見つめてる アルトゥカの民よ
ああ今宵も 囚われひとの
夜は長い

Romaji

Hoshi no hikari tooku kataru hito wa nai
Subete no inori subete no omoi
Rai ra ra rai tura

Gesshoku no sora ni
nosete mite mo
Tomaranu ame ni negai yabureta
Rai ra ra rai tura

Yume wo hakobe mishiranu chou yo
Ai wo hakobe mihatenu kuni e

Kaze bakari miageteru arutuka no chou yo
Aa koyoi mo tobenai hane no
Yoru wa nagai

Rai ra ra rai tura rai ra ra rai tura

Shima no mukashi tooku kataru hito wa nai
Subete no inori subete no ikari
Rai ra ra rai tura

Ginshoku no fune ni nosete mita ga
Tomaranu umi ni negai yaburete
Rai ra ra rai tura

Yume wo hakobe mishiranu kami yo
Ai wo hakobe mihatenu kuni e

Kaze bakari mitsumeteru arutuka no tami yo
Aa koyoi mo torawarebito no
Yoru wa nagai

English

Faraway, nobody speaks of the light of the stars
All our prayers… All our emotions…
rai ra ra rai tura

Though we tried to cast them into the
sky lit by the Lunar Eclipse
Our wishes were lost in the ceaseless rain
rai ra ra rai tura

Carry our dreams… Unknown Butterfly…
Carry your love to our unfinished homeland

Raising its eyes only at the wind is Artuqa’s butterfly
Aa, this evening, the night of wings that will not fly
It is long…

rai ra ra rai tura rai ra ra rai tura

Faraway, nobody speaks of the island’s past
All our prayers, all our rage
rai ra ra rai tura

Though we tried to cast them upon that silver ship
Our wishes were lost in the ceaseless ocean
rai ra ra rai tura

Carry our dreams… Unknown God
Carry your love to our unfinished homeland

Gazing only at the wind are the people of Artuqa
Aa, this evening, the night of captives…
It is long…
