幻奏幻花、届かずの音色 Gensou-Genka, Todokazu no Neiro

I really do like Youmu, a lot. – In the beginning, she caused me a lot of pain (I could hardly ever get past her T^T) but since then I’ve grown to love her :D – To be fair, I think Ancient Temple’s a better theme though – but this arrangement pulls Till When? off :)

Notes:
Shout it out 斬奸そう振り翳せ絶望を
^ A more full translation would be “Shout it out”, with cunning (bordering on wicked/evil) lethal strikes I wave (my sword) over-head (to slice apart) my despair. <- this might help you form the image a little better ^_^

在る木は私のよう
^ Literally "A certain tree is just like me" but of course this is referring to the Ayakashi, so I figured I'd make it more concrete – if you don't know what the Ayakashi is, Touhou Wiki :)

幾年の季節を越えて
君が為に刃振るう
切っ先の露は 頬を伝う
ループ Till when? そう 解らないから

No matter how many seasons pass
I shall wield my blade for your sake
The dew upon the its tip touches my cheek
Till when does this loop continue? I do not know.

手向けの花の一欠片
集め眺め枯れては捨て
己が迷い断ち斬れずに
何が斬れると言うのでしょう?

A single flower's fragment alights on my hand;
I gather more, stare at them and when they dry I throw them away.
For as long as I wander never defeated or severed
What then is?

待てど咲かない "Till when?"
想えば想うほど
季節は遠ざかり
春を見失う

Though I wait for them, they will never blossom – "Till when?"
The more I wish for it the more
The season pulls further away —
I lose sight of spring.

歌えど届かぬ "Till when?"
この手は届くのに
季節をまた巡り
春を見失う

Though I sing for it, I will never reach it – "Till when?"
Till when I can reach it with my own hands
The seasons continue to cycle and wander —
I lose sight of spring.

飛ばせ弾幕を 絶てよ杞憂を
Shout it out 斬奸そう振り翳せ絶望を

Let fly thousands of shots to sever my absurd anxieties
Shout it out – with cunning strikes I slice apart my despair

穿て心の臓 止ませ Distortion
輪廻 Till when? そう 解らないから

I'll pierce my heart and stop the distortion
Till when does this reincarnation continue? I do not know.

奔れ Battle field 躱す兇弾を
一閃兇刃 Buster 生還か消失か

I sprint over the battlefield parrying assassins' shots
The assassins' buster blades flash, will I come back alive or perish?

尊厳を散らし 存在を吼える

Scattering all majesty and sanctity I howl and scream out my existence!

この獣を君が見たならば

What would you do if you saw this beast that I am?!

どう思うの "Till when?"
咲かずにいつまでも
在る木は私のよう
春を探してる

What do you think? – "Till when?"
For all eternity never blossoming
The Ayakashi is just like me
Searching for spring.

想えど届かぬ "Till when?"
この手は届くのに
季節をまた巡り
春を探してる

Though I wish for it, I will never reach it – "Till when?"
Till when I can reach it with my own hands
The seasons continue to cycle and wander —
And I continue to search for spring.

奏でど届かぬ "Till when?"
この音は届くのに
季節はまた巡り
春を探してる

Though I play for it music, I will never reach it – "Till when?"
Till when I can reach it with my own hands
The seasons continue to cycle and wander —
And I continue to search for spring.

泣けども届かぬ "Till when?"
この音は届くのに
季節がまた巡り
春を探してる

Though I cry for it, I will never reach it – "Till when?"
Till when I can reach it with my own hands
The seasons continue to cycle and wander —
And I continue to search for spring.

叫べど届かぬ "Till when?"
この音は届くのに
季節がまた巡り
春を探してる

Though I scream for it, I will never reach it – "Till when?"
Till when I can reach it with my own hands
The seasons continue to cycle and wander —
And I continue to search for spring.

喚けど届かぬ "Till when?"
この音は届くのに
季節がまた巡り
春を探してる

Though I howl for it, I will never reach it – "Till when?"
Till when I can reach it with my own hands
The seasons continue to cycle and wander —
And I continue to search for spring.

想えど届かぬ "Till when?"
いつかは桜咲き
隣で奏で合える
春を探してる

Though I wish for it, I will never reach it – "Till when?"
One day the sakura will blossom,
Playing music, harmonizing by my side
So I continue to search for spring.
