キミシニタモウコトナカレ // Kimi Shinitamou Koto Nakare (Shangri-La OP)

Because I’m reading Shangri-la. (X╹_​_​_​_​_╹) I really need a “giant boomerang” emoticon.

View the above post (a Touhou song based off of this theme and Suwako’s theme) [link] for the entirety of my rant. Here are pictures drawn by Yoshida Ken’ichi, that look much more like how the cast in Shangri-la should look: [1],[2],[3],[4]

Note:
キミシニタモウコトナカレ=君死に給ふ事勿れ

I originally translated キミシニタモウコトナカレ insufficiently as “Thou Shalt Not Wish to Die”, but it’s really more like Thou Shalt Not Die for Others. ^_^; I for some reason thought tamou was takarou, but it’s tamou, rather tamau, pronounced tamou. Really sorry about the confusion there. In the song, I made it “You should never wish to die for me”, though rather than “for me” “for a cause” might be a little more accurate.

I put “Thou Shalt Not Die” for the title to keep it simple ^_^;

どんな場所で どんな声で どうしたいって
愛は泣いてるんだろう

Donna basho de donna koe de doushitai tte
Ai wa naiterundarou

Isn’t love crying? In all kinds of places,
In all sorts of voices, “What do you want?”

そうじゃない
世界はとっくに終わってるんだ
始まりなんて見当たらない

Sou ja nai
Sekai wa tokku ni owatternda
Hajimari nante miataranai

Isn’t it true?
The world has ended long ago
And there’s no new beginning in sight

わかるよ
君が見せない痛みも全部
この体で感じたいから

Wakaru yo
Kimi ga misetai itami mo zenbu
Kono karada de kanjitai kara

I know,
I can feel all the pain
That you hide from me

自分に何が出来るかどうかなんて
走りだして初めて気づくでしょう

Jibun ni nani ga dekiru ka dou ka nante
Hajiridashite hajimete kidzuku deshou

Though you ask yourself, “What can I do, can I do anything at all?”
You won’t know for sure until you start running forward

キミシニタモウコトナカレ
闇の果て 目を凝らしたよ
何処で どんな声で どうしたいって
愛は泣いてるんだろう

Kimi shinitamou koto nakare
Yami no hate me wo korashita yo
Doko de donna koe de doushitai tte
Ai wa naitern’darou

You should never think to die for me
Your eyes fixed on the depths of darkness
Isn’t love crying? In all kinds of places,
In all sorts of voices, “What do you want?”

美しい森と清らかな水を忘れ
この都市は踊り始めた

Utsukushii mori to kiyorakana mizu wo wasure
Kono toshi wa odorihajimeta

Forgetting its beautiful forest and pure waters
This town began to dance

誰一人傷つけないで生きてゆくのは
むずかしいことなのですか

Dare hitori kizutsukenaide ikiteyuku no wa
Muzukashii koto nano desuka

Is it really that hard to live
Without hurting anyone else?

正しいことも憎しみ怒りも
弧描くように全て巡るけど

Tadashii koto mo nikushimi ikari mo
Ko egaku you ni subete meguru kedo

The right thing, and bitter anger
All cycle through in loops

キミシニタモウコトナカレ
君のため 倒れても這い上がる
あの日 照らした夕陽が
交わした感情が この胸に在るから

Kimi shinitamou koto nakare
Kimi no tame taoretemo haiagaru
Ano hi terashita yuuhi ga
Kawashita kanjou ga kono mune ni aru kara

You should never think to die for me
Even if I’m thrown down, for your sake I’ll crawl my way back up
That day, in the shining sunset
The feelings we exchanged I keep still in my heart

生きてみろ 愛をつなげ
とどいてる? この魂が…
何処で どんな声で どうしたいって
愛は泣いてる

Ikitemiro ai wo tsunage
Todoiteru kono tamashii ga
Doko de donna koe de doushitai tte
Ai wa naiteru

“Live and bind your threads of love!”
Will my heart reach you?
My love is crying, in all kinds of places,
In all sorts of voices, “What do you want?”

キミシニタモウコトナカレ
君のため 倒れても這い上がる
あの日 照らした夕陽が
交わした感情が この胸に在るから

Kimi shinitamou koto nakare
Kimi no tame taoretemo haiagaru
Ano hi terashita yuuhi ga
Kawashita kanjou ga kono mune ni aru kara

You should never think to die for me
Even if I’m thrown down, for your sake I’ll crawl my way back up
That day, in the shining sunset
The feelings we exchanged I keep still in my heart

    I went and downloaded the series but never got around to watching it… busy life fails.

    • Yeah, the series wasn’t very good – I’m hoping the book will be better – the whole anti-forestation, environmentalism turned on its head concept was really cool though (which I why I got the book in the first place).
