I'm trying to understand the lyrics of the song 細氷【さいひょう】. Here's the part of the lyrics I don't understand:
I see it as:
"your leaving figure (back)" + "ni" + "farewell".
I can't understand where this ni points to. I mean, who says sayounara to whom? I understand it can indicate both the source of passive verb and destination for active. Yet the verb seems omitted here. Or is it really omitted?
Also, does it mean
- "You leave and say farewell to me."; or
- "You leave and I say farewell to you."
According to the songs flow I'd go with the first option but the second one seems correct according to my maybe lacking grammatical knowledge.
