I’m The Seeker (Maybe Each Your Word Calls For it) || Truths, Ironies, The Secret Lyrics

If you haven’t heard, Suzuori’s leaving *sadface* (◕︵◕)….

The other mostly English post is relatively popular, so I figured I’d do it as part of finishing up Foreground Eclipse’s discography. Technically a translation post, because I’m the Seeker has lines in Japanese. :P

If anyone wants I can post the English lyrics to Missing Loving… and Suffering, but neither of those have any Japanese in them, so I can’t fake a translation post with them :P

With this I’ve posted every song (forgot about THE DISTANT JOURNEY TO YOU… thought I’d done that already…) for both of Foreground Eclipse’s full albums. I might do 恋詠 a little later. But I do have two requests I haven’t done yet… hahahaha….. ^_^;;;;;;;; (Planning on doing those this weekend at the latest).

Last night
I saw one of them in my dream
Last night
I chased one of them in my dream

They say “We speak in different voices
when fighting with the ones we’ve loved”
I know we also speak that way
when looking after our own

I like to play hide and seek
But before you count 50
I’m sure I will get tired
I think I’d rather seek

I know that you speak in different voices
Don’t be afraid show me who you are

ここに無いものを求めて
回り廻る私に
言の葉を紡ぐあなたへ
この歌を

Searching for things not here
From me, spinning ’round
To you, weaving words
I give this song

Last night
I saw one of them in my dream
Last night
I chased one of them in my dream

Last night
I saw one of them in my dream
Last night
I chased one of them in my dream

They say “we speak in different voices
when fighting with the ones we’ve loved”
I think we always speak that way
but on the edge of life

I like to play hide and seek
But when you count 100
I realize at last
I’d like to go away

形つけては並べて
積み上げては崩して
目に映るものはすべて
幻で

I give them shape and line them up
I stack them then knock them down
Everything I see with my eyes
I take for an illusion

言葉はどこにでもあるの (Show me)
そこには心はあるの (Who you are)
すべて失ったあと
見えるでしょう

Words are everywhere. (Show me)
And there lies a heart. (Who you are)
When you’ve lost everything,
Then, you’ll be able to see it.



Truths, Ironies, The Secret Lyrics

I know that no one knows
what we’re singing in English
And it becomes a bit faster,
watch your step

If you feel sick of this song,
it’s far better to skip right now
I’m sure that next one’s not too loud
like this one so don’t worry

Oh your stereo or iPod is
running on their random-play
It’s so funny
if I’m The Seeker comes after skip

Now my throat burns from screaming
Let’s dance to the music

One more day before you go
One more night everybody dance it all away
Swinging arms, jumping bodies
Don’t stop even if lights out

This song is a cover of the
famous “Is She U.N. Owen?”
I was strongly impressed
when I listen to the covers by
COOL&CREATE, Silver Forest,
SYNC.ART’S or the SOUND HOLIC
But it’s hard to rearrange
cause its melody’s so complex

One more day before you go
One more night everybody dance it away
Don’t stop even if lights out

I wrote this song in hurry
I know this lyric is funny
I wish at least one of you like this song
That’s all


Forget Me Not

Today, Suzuori reported that he would be leaving Foreground Eclipse. (ノд・。) [link(jpn)] (I have this really weird habit of remembering him as Suzunori, that I can’t explain…)

(´;ω;`) I’ll never be able to see the original group live like I wanted to…

Anyway as a farewell, here’s a translation of the song he wrote: “Forget Me Not”, which of course, is oddly appropriate.

I always have to be careful with the translations for these songs, because I love this band ^_^;

I’m always there by your side
Cause I know you’re always here by my side

乾いた風の匂い
追いかけた冬の空へ
夢はここにあるの?
過ぎた時は戻らないから

Scents of a dry wind
Off in the winter sky I chased after
But are there dreams here?
For time gone by will not return

I will keep these beautiful memories
inside the center part of my heart
I can’t say enough Thank-You’s

Let’s make a promise now
That we will meet again someday
So it’s not our farewell

小さな花の種を
浮かべよう心の海へ

Let’s set this small flower’s seed
Afloat upon the heart’s sea

君はどこへ行くの?
忘れないでここにいるから

Where are you going?
Forget me not, for I will be here.

Remember I’m always by your side
Even if you get lost on your way

降り止まぬ白い空へ
打ち付ける窓の雨
眠れなくて
静かな夜に鳴り響く鐘の音
覚えてるよ

Off in a white sky where it just won’t stop pouring
The rain beats on the windows
I can’t sleep
I remember, the bells ringing
That silent night

Hope doing well somewhere
And I’m still here looking at the sky
From my room on my own

You’re not here by my side
But your smile is still in my mind
I won’t say I miss you
