Sleeping Forest

^I love the Danbooru “original” tag.

I always love a chance to translate a Foreground Eclipse original song, and especially one like this – because you can tell this is Suzuori’s song – and even though he’s gone now, with both the new and old you can say definitely, “This is foreground Eclipse.”

As Nomura Mizuki would say: Fantajittic – or in English, Fantastic.

Thanks to Rumia_13/Nanoka for bringing this to my attention.

By the way, (as you may have noticed from me bringing up Nomura Mizuki) I’m in the middle of reading the last book in the 文学少女見習い series, 卒業, and it’s amazing – but I’ll save that for a later post.

It’s hard to paint a definite picture with these lyrics, but I tried to translate it so that the same ambiguities would remain ^^;

Sleeping Forest
Circle: Pixel Bee
(Foreground Eclipse)
Album: PanoramAnote
Event: C78


You’re still sleeping
In this gentle wind


Wrapped in light
Embracing all this warmth


Quietly I wake and
Color brilliantly fills in the monochrome


In the middle of this deep deep forest
I keep waiting for you
On the other side of this blue blue sky
I’m sure you’ll take me away…


A wind breaks through the evening calm
Leaving a scent of the earth and forming words

Sleeping forest is deep
Sleeping forest in silence


The trees sway and rock this white cradle and
A rainbow amulet falls out
I reach out to the hand that softly touches mine
And holding it, close my eyes


I look at your face, asleep again and
Wish that my feelings might reach you…

Sleeping forest is deep
Sleeping forest in silence

    I have a request 空振りサディスティック from C-Clays. I simply adore this song!

    • I’ll add you to the list, but I’m crazy backlogged right now so it’ll probably be a while T^T

    Did you ever see my request for ficus glomerata?

    • Yep, I’m just way completely backlogged because I’m adding JLPT studying to my daily activities and have been busier at work lately D: – I should post a “current requests list” especially because the YT thing sorta fell apart after aghart left (and 1/2 the video links fell off and etc.)

      >.> <.<

      I wish my job could be this instead. Talk about a perfect world D:
