Kenshi Yonezu / Hachi - Lemon (English translation)

English translation

Lemon

How I wish it were only a dream
Even now I still dream of you
I brush the dust off from old memories
Like returning home to retrieve a forgotten item
 
In the end it was you who taught me that
Some hapinesses can't be reclaimed
My dark, hidden past I dared not speak of
Without you, they would have remained forever dark
 
I know there is no way I could ever hurt
More than I do now
 
Even the sadness from that day, even the pain from that day,
I loved it all, together with you
The bitter scent of lemons remains embedded in my heart
Can't make my way home 'til the rain lets up
Even now you remain my light
 
In the darkness I traced outlines of your back
I remember it's contour so clearly
Every time I encounter something that's all too overwhelming
That's the tears that won't stop overflowing
 
What were you doing, what were you watching
Your face in profile, with a look I'd never seen
 
If you are out thre somewhere now
Lost in the same tears, same loneliness as I
Please won't you just erase me from your memory
This I pray from the bottom of my heart
 
More than I knew
I was in love with you
Since then I can't
Breathe easy
 
It seems so unreal
How you were always by my side back then
But I will never forget
That is the certain truth
 
Even the sadness from that day, even the pain from that day,
I loved it all, together with you
The bitter scent of lemons remains embedded in my heart
Can't make my way home 'til the rain lets up
Like a piece of sliced fruit
Even now you remain my light

Translation that you can find on the Official MV.
Since I can't add my own french translation I guess it means this is the official translation of the song and that is why I put it here, regardless of the english mistakes.
