Tenku no shiro laputaLaputa ending song lyrics
Kimi o nosete (Carrying you)
"Tenku no Shiro Laputa" ending theme (1986)
ano chiheisen kagayaku no wa The reason the horizon shines
dokoka ni kimi o kakushite iru kara is that somewhere it's hiding you.
takusan no hi ga natsukashii no wa The reason I long for the many lights
ano doreka hitotsu ni kimi ga iru kara is that you are there in one of them.
saa dekake you hitokire no PAN So, I set out, with a slice of bread,
NAIFU RAMPU kaban ni tsumekonde a knife, a lamp, stuffed in a bag.
* tou-san ga nokoshita atsui omoi Father left me his burning desire.
kaa-san ga kureta ano manazashi Mother gave me her eyes.
chikyuu wa mawaru kimi o kakushite The earth turns, hiding you.
kagayaku hitomi kirameku tomoshibi Shining eyes, twinkling lights.
chikyuu wa mawaru kimi o nosete The earth turns, carrying you,
itsuka kitto deau bokura o nosete carrying us both who'll surely meet.
