瞬瞳的刹那 // Shundouteki Setsuna


^See, I knew Aya was going to come up again soon! By the artist who draws Touhou Ibara Kasen! I actually brought back a mini-poster/flyer from Japan for an event drawn by her (featuring Aya)… :D

Note on the title: for a visual, think of an eye blinking with a snapshot sound effect ^_^

Swing Holic is love. Aya is also love. ^_^

It must have been one of the coolest things in the world to be like an investigative newspaper reporter in the twenties or something…

産まれて壊れて繰り返せば
始めと終わりが滲む世界

In this world birth and destruction repeat over and over again;
Beginnings and endings bleed into each other

やがては朽ち行くその流転を
切り取れ 無情な優しさゆえ

When they finally begin to pass away I’ll take with me
Those vicissitudes, that cruel kindness

瞬く瞳には刹那が焼き付く
記憶に閉じ込め 愛しい
もう今は 羽ばたけない 翼が涙に濡れてしまったの
あの日の涙に…

With each blink of my eyes each moment burns
Shuttered lovingly away into my memory
Now I can’t fly anymore, these tears have soaked through my wings,
The tears from that day…

忘れて 思い出して 忘れて
問いかけ 答えて また忘れる

Forgetting… remembering… forgetting…
Asking… answering… and forgetting once again

可笑しな言葉を真に受けたら
羽ばたけ 苛細い逞しさで

If I’m to accept such ridiculous words as true,
Then I’ll fly, bolstered by an obsession for details

記した言葉に虚実が飛び交う
形を浚えば 虚しい
もう今は ほどかれたこの指が 温もりを探すけど
冷たい風向き…

In these words I’ve recorded, lies and truths fly past one another
But if you sweep away the form, it will just be empty
Now my fingers, no longer tied with another’s, search for warmth
I face the cold wind…

もう戻らないのに
誰も戻りはしないのに
また世界を閉じ込めた罪で
解けないパスルを弄ぶ

Though there’s no turning back
Though no one can turn back
Beside the shutter closed again upon the world
I’ll play with this unsolvable puzzle

瞬く瞳には刹那が焼き付く
記憶に閉じ込め 愛しい
もう今は 羽ばたけない 翼が涙に濡れたままなの
あの日の涙に…

With each blink of my eyes each moment burns
Shuttered lovingly away into my memory
Now I can’t fly anymore, these tears have soaked through my wings,
The tears from that day…

    Very nice… Volume 5 has many great Aya tracks. Have you heard “Blue Rain in Kyoto”(Retrospective Kyoto arrangement)? It’s really nice..

    • Yeah, it’s a great track :D
      Reminds me of Houston, but maybe that’s just because they used to have a lot of great jazz stations in Houston… >.>

    This song got me into SWING HOLIC and jazz in general.

    …this Aya is really different from her usual image.
