Lost Mind (ロストマインド)

^PC-98 Love

This is an arrangement of probably the least known, least popular Touhou character out there. (I think the mimi rockets have more of a fan base…) You probably haven’t heard of her unless you’ve played Anjiru-Sensei’s Touhoumon Emerald, in which she’s the best starter in my opinion. She’s rather easy to overlook even if you’ve played Phantasmagoria of a Dim. Dream….

She’s a poltergeist, and if I remember correctly a painter? That should be all you need to know to figure out this song. ^_^

Anyway, I like this kind of jazzy-style music (I really need to take something in music study so I can be more defined in what I call the music I like… ._.)

Notes:
I’ll admit, I tried to be a little clever with the lyrics. “dyeing” might have been a little much (in its punny-ness, yes), but I’ve yet to find a good verb in English for describing slowly being dyed in emotion, color… etc. Think of putting a coffee filter in dye and watching it climb up. THAT. Maybe one day I’ll find it.

深い深い眠りへと誘う
もう一人の私が現れる 不思議な空間
淡く染まる 甘い恋心
愛しくて切なくて 涙が零れ落ちた

Lured into a deep, deep sleep,
I see another one of me – what a strange dimension!
Faintly dyeing, my sweet loving heart
Longs in love and over preciousness as my tears overflow and fall to the ground..

鏡に映る姿 あなたには見えない

This figure reflected in the mirror, you cannot see..

夢から醒めて 幻想の中で
あなたに触れたくて 手を伸ばしたけど
でもね、届かない 胸が苦しいよ
こんなにも近くにいるのに「ねぇ、どうして?」

Woken out of a dream, now inside an illusion!
I want to touch you, to reach my hands out to you
But of course I won’t make it – it hurts so much… my heart
I’m so close to you, so why can’t I..? “Please, won’t you tell me?!”

淡く染まる 甘い恋心
悲しくて寂しくて 涙が零れ落ちた

Faintly dyeing, my sweet loving heart
Is overwhelmed with sadness and loneliness as my tears overflow and fall to the ground..

鏡に映る姿 あなたには見えない

This figure reflected in the mirror, you cannot see..

失いかけた 絵空事なんて
虚しくなるだけで 不安になるばかり
でもね、届けたい 胸が苦しいよ
もう何もいらない 何も望まない

Now this fantasy of mine is shattered in pieces!
All I feel is emptiness and anxiety!!
I still want to reach you, but it hurts so much.. my heart
I don’t need anything anymore, I don’t want it!

夢から醒めて 幻想の中は
とても心地良くて 意識が堕ちていく
でもね、本当は 胸が苦しいよ
こんなにも近くにいるのに 「ねぇ、どうして?」

Woken out of a dream, now inside an illusion!
But here I feel calm and at peace, and my consciousness begins to fade
But still, it just hurts so much.. my heart
I’m so close to you, so why can’t I..? “Please, won’t you tell me?!”

    Ooh, I spot Luize in that picture. She and Kana have two of my favorite character designs out of the PC-98 games.

    Thanks for the translation as usual!

    • ^_^ There are Kana fans out there! Awesome!
      All characters deserve love! Well… maybe not the five-stone-laser-contraption-thingy.
      PC-98 is awesome in that classic sort of way. Rika,Yuki,Mai,Alice,Yuuka fan -> ヽ(╹ε╹)ノ – Though Alice and Yuuka broke out of PC-98… at least most of Yuuka’s awesomeness comes from the PC-98 era.
