Lyrics from
hachigatsu juugonichi no gogo juunijihan kurai no koto
tenki ga ii

Lyrics from
It happened at around 12:30 pm on August 15.
The weather was nice.

Lyrics from
byouki ni narisou na hodo mabushii hizashi no naka
suru koto mo nai kara kimi to dabetteita

Lyrics from
Showered in sunlight bright enough to make me feel ill,
I, having nothing to do, was chattering with you.

Lyrics from
"Demo maa natsu wa kirai kana" neko o nadenagara
kimi wa futebuteshiku tsubuyaita

Lyrics from
"But I think I kinda hate summer." While caressing a cat,
you muttered brazenly.

Lyrics from
aa, nigedashita neko no ato o oikakete
tobikonde shimatta no wa aka ni kawatta shingouki

Lyrics from
Ah, chasing after your runaway cat,
you found yourself plunged before a red traffic light.

Lyrics from
batto toota TORAKKU ga kimi o hikizutte nakisakebu
chi shibuki no iro, kimi no kaori to mazariatte musekaetta
uso mitai na kagerou ga "Uso ja nai zo" tte waratteru
natsu no mizu-iro, kakimawasu you na semi no ne ni subete kuranda

Lyrics from
A passing truck suddenly ran you over and drove away, while I screamed.
I began sobbing at the color of splashed blood mixed with your scent.
The heat haze was sneering at me, reminding me that it wasn't a joke.
I blacked out at the cicadas' noises that were disturbing the surface of the summer lake.

Lyrics from
me o samashita tokei no hari ga narihibiku BEDDO de
ima wa nanji?

Lyrics from
When I came back to my senses in a bed, I hear the echoing sound of a clock's hands.
What time is it?

Lyrics from
hachigatsu juuyonka no gozen juuniji sugi kurai o sasu
yake ni urusai semi no oto oboeteita
demo saa, sukoshi fushigi da na.
onaji kouen de kinou mita yume o omoidashita
"Mou kyou wa kaerou ka" michi ni nuketa toki
mawari no hito wa minna ue o miage kuchi o aketeita

Lyrics from
The hands of the clock point to a little past midnight on August 15.
I remember the annoying noises of the cicadas.
But wow, it's kinda mysterious.
I remember the dream I had yesterday in the same park.
"I should go home for today." When I was on my way,
the people around me were all looking up with their mouths gaping.

Lyrics from
rakka shite kita tecchuu ga kimi o tsuranuite tsukisasaru
tsunzaku himei to fuurin no ne ga kigi no sukima de karamawari
wazatorashii kagerou ga "Yume ja nai zo" tte waratteru
kuramu shikai ni kimi no yokogao, waratteiru you na kigashita

Lyrics from
A falling metal pole pierced through you.
A tearing shriek and the sound of wind chimes echo through the trees.
The heat haze was sneering at me, reminding me that it wasn't a joke.
Through my darkening eyes, I thought I saw you smile.

Lyrics from
nando sekai ga kurande mo kagerou ga waratte ubaisaru.
kurikaeshite nanjuunen. mou tokku ni ki ga tsuiteitaro.

Lyrics from
The sneering heat haze plunders away one darkened world after another.
It's been repeating for tens of years. You probably have noticed by now.

Lyrics from
konna yoku aru hanashi nara ketsumatsu wa kitto hitotsu dake.
kurikaeshita natsu no hi no mukou.

Lyrics from
This kind of frequently told story has only one ending,
but it can be found beyond those repeating summer days.

Lyrics from
batto oshinoke tobikonda, shunkan TORAKKU ni buchiataru
chi shibuki no iro, kimi no hitomi to kishimu karada ni ranhansha shite
monku arige na kagerou ni "Zamaa miro yo" tte warattara

Lyrics from
When I pushed you aside and jumped in, the truck slammed into me.
The color of my splashed blood reflected off your eyes and your robotic body.
The seemingly annoyed heat haze was laughing, as though saying "Take that!"

Lyrics from
jitsu ni yoku aru natsu no hi no koto.
sonna nanika ga koko de owatta.

Lyrics from
It's quite a regular summer day for me.
But something has come to an end this time.

Lyrics from
me o samashita hachigatsu juuyonka no BEDDO no ue
shoujo wa tada

Lyrics from
Awakening on August 14 in a bed,
a girl, hugging her cat alone,

Lyrics from
"Mada dame datta yo" to hitori neko o dakikakaeteta

Lyrics from
said, "It didn't work again."

Note: This is a story about how a boy and girl, seemingly forever trapped in two repeating days (Aug.14 & Aug.15), are vying to die for each other in order to somehow escape that cursed loop.
