kono mama

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Like now... [2]

[1] The idea of these first two lines is that the girl's looking at the sun through a window that's been frosted over. The frost on the glass melts and diffracts the light, distorting the colours and outlines somewhat, making the window look like a blurred painting of the Sun. Also, with the true colours I mean the way the colours would look like if they weren't distorted.

[2] Very roughly speaking, "kono mama" means "the way things are now" but it's a very obscure expression. I can't say for sure what kind of a connection it has with the rest of the song so that's the best translation I can do.
