PV (first uploaded on Nicovideo on the 7th of October, 2010)

This song is heavily influenced by “Rin toshite saku hana no gotoku”, composed by Beniiro Litmus.
During live performances, Ranko often changes the “mangetsu” of the fifth stanza with the live name or the location (example: “nouzui no yoru ni wa uta utai” translatable as “singing songs in the night of Nouzui”).

Lyrics

手にした紅葉は
いつもいつの間にか飛んでった
世は徒然 退屈な瞳を閉じた
te ni shita momiji wa
itsumo itsunomanika tondetta
yo wa tsuredzure taikutsu na me wo tojita

憂いし空には朧月
囲い無き夢は恙なし
ureishi sora ni wa oborodzuki
kakoinaki yume wa tsutsuganashi

光陰 承允 時は流れて
もう一回等 狡はなし
遠い向こうに明けゆく空は
千年前のまま
kouin shouin toki wa nagarete
mou ikkai nado zuru wa nashi
tooi mukou ni ake yuku sora wa
sennen mae no mama

手にした紅葉は
いつもいつの間にか飛んでった
世は徒然 退屈な瞳を閉じた
te ni shita momiji wa
itsumo itsunomanika tondetta
yo wa tsuredzure taikutsu na me wo tojita

満月の夜には唄謡い
泡沫の宴恙なし
mangetsu no yoru ni wa uta utai
utakata no utage tsutsuganashi

光陰 承允 時は流れど
万年新造に嘘はなし
案に違いし物事の影は
千年前のまま
kouin shouin toki wa nagaredo
mannen shinzou ni uso wa nashi
an ni tagaishi butsuji no kage wa
sennen mae no mama

手にした紅葉は
いつもいつの間にか飛んでった
『もういいかい?』
閉じていた瞳を開けた
te ni shita momiji wa
itsumo itsunomanika tondetta
“mou ii kai?”
tojite ita me wo aketa

手にした紅葉は
いつもいつの間にか飛んでった
世は徒然 退屈な瞳を閉じた
手にした紅葉は
いつもいつの間にか飛んでった
『もういいかい?』
閉じていた瞳を開けた
te ni shita momiji wa
itsumo itsunomanika tondetta
yo wa tsuredzure taikutsu na me wo tojita
te ni shita momiji wa
itsumo itsunomanika tondetta
“mou ii kai?”
tojite ita me wo aketa
