夜に駆ける
yoasobi Lyrics


沈むように 溶けてゆくように
二人だけの空が広がる夜に

「さよなら」だけだった
その一言で全てが分かった
日が沈み出した空と君の姿
フェンス越しに重なっていた

初めて会った日から
僕の心の全てを奪った
どこか儚い空気を纏う君は
寂しい目をしてたんだ

いつだってチックタックと鳴る世界で何度だってさ
触れる心無い言葉うるさい声に涙が零れそうでも
ありきたりな喜び きっと二人なら見つけられる

騒がしい日々に 笑えない君に
思い付く限り眩しい明日を
明けない夜に落ちてゆく前に
僕の手を掴んでほら
忘れてしまいたくて 閉じ込めた日々も
抱きしめた温もりで溶かすから
怖くないよ いつか日が昇るまで 二人でいよう

君にしか見えない
何かを見つめる君が嫌いだ
見惚れているかのような 恋するような
そんな顔が嫌いだ

信じていたいけど信じれないこと
そんなのどうしたってきっと
これからだっていくつもあって
そのたんび怒って泣いていくの
それでもきっといつかはきっと僕らはきっと
分かり合えるさ 信じてるよ

もう嫌だって 疲れたんだって
がむしゃらに差し伸べた僕の手を振り払う君
もう嫌だって 疲れたよなんて
本当は僕も言いたいんだ

ほらまたチックタックと鳴る世界で何度だってさ
君の為に用意した言葉どれも届かない
「終わりにしたい」だなんてさ
釣られて言葉にした時 君は初めて笑った

騒がしい日々に笑えなくなっていた
僕の目に映る君は綺麗だ
明けない夜に溢れた涙も
君の笑顔に溶けていく

変わらない日々に泣いていた僕を
君は優しく終わりへと誘う
沈むように 溶けてゆくように
染み付いた霧が晴れる
忘れてしまいたくて 閉じ込めた日々に
差し伸べてくれた君の手を取る
涼しい風が空を泳ぐように今吹き抜けていく
繋いだ手を離さないでよ
二人今 夜に駆け出していく

For all the people who dont know

This song is about a girl who attempts suicide but is saved by a boy and it turns to a love relationship almost like love at first sight. The boy ask the girl why she wants to die and she says she has thanatos ilness basically people ruled by thanatos want death and she's ruled by eros desire life and will to live. People with thanatos can see the grim realer. Since the girl has thanatos the grim reaper is calling out to her and the boy gets jealous. She tries to attempt suicide again and it looks like she is just waiting for the boy to come save her again. After awhile she says no more so they break up and now the boy doesnt want to live either. Now it flashes to where they are both at a rooftop and the girl finally smiles (both ready to jump off) they both jumped off happily and the boy dies the girl didnt because she never existed. The bot was the one with thanatos the whole time and the girl was his grim reaper

Which is why at 2:59 when he says he wanrs to end it all in the lyrics that was the first time she smiledl

At 3:40 only one person walks through the door and thats because she is not real

thanks for all the support accept u Joseph

but stop harassing Joseph I appreciate the thought behind it but that's just harassment

The Temptation of Thanatos

This is the original short story that was used as inspiration for YOASOBI’s popular hit "Racing into the night"

Be careful when your ideal person shows up out of the blue.
August 15. Even though the sun had set a long time ago, humid air continued to linger on in the surroundings. Sweat gushed out endlessly from my body as I dashed up the stairs of the apartment building.
“Goodbye.”
Her LINE message contained just this word.
I immediately understood what that meant.
I had been working throughout Obon.1 Right after completing the preparations for returning home, I had hurriedly headed for the apartment building where I lived.
And it was on the roof, outside the fence, where I found her standing with a vacant look in her eyes.
The truth is, this was the fourth time I had seen her attempting to take her life by jumping.
It is said that there are two kinds of people in this world.
Humans who are inclined towards life — governed by “Eros”;
And humans who are inclined towards death — governed by “Thanatos”.
Most people belong to the former, yet she was unmistakably of the latter kind.
That she was a human being governed by “Thanatos” was something I had known even before I began dating her.
After all, the reason for our first encounter was because I had tried to save her from attempting suicide on the roof of the apartment building, just like what was happening now.
She was a girl who had just moved into the same apartment building. With her round eyes and full lips, she possessed a lovely set of facial features yet had a delicate expression on her face. She stole my heart in an instant. Surely, it must have been love at first sight.
From that moment on, we chatted about various topics and became good friends very quickly. For me, who had been working at a black company2 and living my life in solitude, she was like an angel who had descended from the heavens.
Except, I had one doubt.
Each time she had planned to take her life, she would contact me without fail. And she would wait there until I arrived.
I thought it would be better to die alone without telling anyone, but perhaps, somewhere in her heart, she wished for me to stop her from committing suicide and help her, like I did the first time we had met. I simply took this as an explanation for her actions.
And that’s why I rushed up the stairs of the apartment building this time as well.
“Haa, haa…”
I reached the roof of the apartment building.
I found her standing on the opposite side of the fence, with her back towards me.
“Wait…!!”
I jumped over the fence and took hold of her hand.
It was cold, contrary to the humid weather.
“Let go.”
Akin to the ringing of bells, her voice was fleeting and sweet. I loved her voice too.
“Why are you doing this…!”
“I want to die, quickly.”
“Why…!”
“Because the god of death is calling for me.”
She could see the ‘god of death’. This was said to be a rare symptom amongst those who were governed by “Thanatos”.
And apart from them, no one else could see this ‘god of death’.
“There’s no such thing as the god of death.”
“Why won’t you understand…!”
When I deny the existence of a god of death, she would definitely scream and shout.
It seems that to those who can see it, the god of death is most attractive. It resembles their ideal person, so to speak.
Whenever she was gazing at the god of death (although for me, I don’t see anything else besides an empty space), her expression was always that of a maiden in love. It was as if she had completely lost her heart to it.
I hated that kind of expression on her face.
“Don’t look at the god of death or whatever, look at me.”
“No…!”
Since she tried to shake my hand off, I ended up holding hers even harder without thinking.
“It hurts…!”
“! Sorry…”
But, isn’t this your fault? Because you were trying to shake my hand off. Because you wouldn’t look at me instead.
“The god of death wouldn’t do such a thing…!”
The darkness in my heart surged forth.
“Why…”
Why is it that even though I love you so much, you would not even spare me a glance?
Somewhere in my heart, I thought it was ridiculous to feel jealousy towards a god of death, but even that could not bother me anymore.
“I’m sick of this.”
I’m sick of this too.
“I’m tired.”
I’m tired too.
“I want to die quickly.”
“I want to die too!!”
At that point, she lifted her head.
She was grinning broadly at me.
As soon as I saw her smiling face, I felt the darkness in my heart dissipate in an instant.
Wait, could it be that?
“Did you finally… realise?”
“Yeah… I finally understood.”
“Really…? That’s great.”
Ah, I see.
The reason you called me each time you planned to commit suicide was not because you wanted my help.
It was because you wanted to bring me along with you.
To me, she was the ‘god of death’.
A cool breeze blew past. Before I knew it, I could no longer feel the heat and humidity from before.
“Well then, shall we go?”
“Yeah, let’s go.”
You and me, with our hands connected.
So that we could escape from the frustration the world brings us,
We raced into the night...

(The guy dies but the girl does not because the truth was that there was no thanatos/grim reaper but the real grim reaper was the girl herself she was the guy's grim reaper)



general señior woofers burber

for anyone who doesn't know, this song/mv is actually based on a short story titled Thanatos Seduction. it's about a girl and a boy who are lovers. the girl was suicidal, and the weird thing is everytime she's about to commit suicide, she makes sure to contact her boyfriend first. the girl's boyfriend thought that she just wants him to stop her from doing it. but what she really meant was they both commit suicide. at the end the boy finally realized it and the girl smiled for the very first time after his realization. then they died happily together

edit: here is the story if anyone wants to read it (turn on the captions for u to understand the timestamps)

August 15th. The sun had already gone down but the warm humid air was still surrounding the area. My body swearing non-stop as I ran up the stairs of my apartment building.

"さようなら" (sayonara - good bye) 0:31

Just a 4 letter text from her.
I knew what it was hinting at, I knew what it meant instantly.

I was working regardless of the holiday at my workplace. After I got ready to go home, I headed to my apartment in a hurry.
At the apartment rooftop, on the other side of the fence, there I saw you standing with your blank eyes.

This was actually the 4th time seeing you planning to jump to your death.

It is said that there are 2 types of humans in this world.
A drive to "life"-humans who are ruled by "Eros"
A drive to "death"-humans who are ruled by "Thanatos".

Most humans in this world are rules by Eros, but she was most definitely ruled by Thanatos.

I already knew she was a human who was ruled by Thanatos before we started dating.
I mean no shit, we met each other when I stopped her from jumping off just like right now on an apartment rooftop.


A girl who recently moved into the same apartment complex. Round eyes ands small plump lips, a cute face, but you had a sad expression. You stole my heart in a heartbeat. I think it was something like love at first sight.

Since then, we started talking about all the types of things and we became closer. She was almost like an Angel who came down from heaven to me, since I was working at a company with poor illegal working conditions and living all alone at the time.

I always had one question that confused me though. Every time she plans to commit suicide, she always contacts me before hand. And always waits till I get there.


I think that I'd be easier to die by telling nobody about it. But I assumed that maybe she wanted me to stop her from jumping, just like the first time we met, that she wanted me to help her.


So again today, I run up the stairs of the building.

heavy breathing

I arrived at the roof.

I find her standing on the other side of the fence

"Wait-"

I jumped over the fence and grabbed her hand.
Her hand was cold compared to the warm humid air.

"Let me go"

Her voice was like a sound of a tiny bell. Her cute fragile voice. I liked her voice too.

"Why are you always like this!"

"I just wanna die already"

"Why...!"

"Because Mr. Reaper is calling me"

She can see "Reapers". It's said that some people who are ruled by "Thanatos" have this condition. And "reapers" can only be seen by those who are ruled by "Thanatos"

"Reapers don't exist"

"Why don't you understand..!?"

Every time I deny the existence of reapers, you always scream and cry.

It's said that the reapers are int the form of what looks the most tempting to the people that can see them, meaning that they look like your ideal person.

When she stared at the reaper (even though it only looked like she was staring into thin air to me), she looked like she was a girl in love.
Almost like she was really falling in love.

I hated that expression of hers.1:58 - 2:11

"Stop looking at the reaper and please look at me"

"I don't want to..!"

She tried to shake off her hand from mine so I squeezed her hand harder unintentionally.

"That hurts..!"

! "I"m sorry...."

Hey, but it's your fault. You tried to shake me off... because you don't look at me..

"Mr. Reaper wouldn't do this...!"

A dark feeling starts to fill my heart.

"Why..."

I love you so much..so why can't you just look at me and only me?

Somewhere in my heart I knew it was dumb to be jealous over a reaper, but it didn't matter to me anymore.

"I just hate this"

I hate this too

"I'm too tired"

I'm tired too

"I just wanna die already"

"I wanna die too!!"

She lifted her face up at the moment

And she smiled. 3:02 - 3:11

As soon as I saw her smile I felt the dark feeling in my heart disappear.

Wait, is this.....

"Did you realize?"

"Yeah...I finally understand"

"Really..? That's good.."

Oh that's what it was.
She didn't contact me every time she planned to jump because she wanted me to help her.

She wanted to take me with her.

She was...my "reaper"

A cool breeze blew. The humid air had already disappeared.

"Let's get going now"

"Yeah..let's go"

You and I, holding hands.

Almost like running away from the frustration this world brought upon us.

We raced into the night. 4:01 - 4:03

the story was originally written in Japanese, a huge thanks to the one who translated this! :)

Maybe the reason this song sounds so upbeat was because of how addictive melancholy is ; so calm yet so chaotic.

Srixa Zone

True

Lucent

I think the reason the song is upbeat is because of love. Love is this vibrant unknown thing. When it strikes it's like a bolt of lightning. So the beat needs to be like a bueatiful storm and they nailed it.

ilove mts

so cute too UwU :3

For anyone who's wondering about what the story of the song is :

There's a girl who tries to sucide but is saved by a boy and it becomes a love relationship (love at first sight). The boy asks the girl why she wants to kill herself, for that she claims that she has thanatos illness (The people ruled by the thanatos seeks death and the people ruled by eros desires a happy life). The people with thanatos can see their grim reaper. So the girl says that the grim reaper is calling out to her and the boy gets jealous. The girl again tries to commit sucide but it turns out she is only doing so because she wants the boy to save her. After a while she says she will never repeat it again and now the boy doesn't want to live either. Now they're standing together at the edge smiling at eachother. They both jump and the boy dies happily and the girl doesn't because she never existed. And it turns out that the boy was the one with thanatos and the girl was his grim reaper convincing him to die

I may have left one or two things but this is what the story is about 🤧 And don't spam at my comment saying that's wrong and this is wrong 🙂 Thank you ❤️

zizo 2000

@Kieran Jumamil right?
That's what I thought too, and that's why planet Japan is in a league of its own even when it comes to drama stories (I'm talking about anime idk about j-drama)

Kieran Jumamil

Great anime plot
