Under Cloud

Requested by: David

FELT is always nice, they have a way with really turning up that emotional epic gauge with their instrumentals.

Notes:
Kaguya looks up at the moon and identifies with it. Normally you’d start thinking about pride issues, but she characterizes the moonlight as a sorrowful gaze. Rather the light over the clouds, she is the light under the clouds. A little unusual but given her name and all I think it works out pretty well.

“fraught with sin” it literally says – “my gaze that drags along with it sin – surely it will lead you to happiness” It’s a very roundabout way to say, “though I cannot rid myself of my sin, at the very least, I want to shine a path for you to be happy.”

彷徨う 明けない夜を 永久の旅の中
一筋 伸びた 空への 遠い路

samayou akenai yoru wo towa no tabi no naka
hitosuji nobita sora e no tooi michi

I wander through this undawning night on an endless journey
By a road that reaches far into the distant sky

今宵も月の明かりは この世を照らし
逃れられない 夢物語よ

koyoi mo tsuki no akari wa kono yo wo terashi
nogarerarenai yumemonogatari yo

The moon again tonight shines its light upon the world
O how I cannot escape this dreamlike tale!

赤い糸は一体
何処へ向かい 何を指しているの
意味の無い問い掛けを
音も出さず ただのみこむ

akai ito wa ittai
doko e mukai nani wo sashiteiru no
imi no nai toikake wo
oto mo dasazu tada nomikomu

“This red thread…
Where does it lead? What is it pointing to?”
Without a sound,
I swallow these meaningless questions

漂う雲の下 たとえ 色褪せる時代も
変わらない命で 光 与えていける

tadayou kumo no shita tatoe iroaseru jidai mo
kawaranai inochi de hikari ataeteyukeru

Under the drifting clouds, even though the ages may fade
With this unchanging life, I can keep shining for you…

大地を 潤すように 君の泪は
胸染み込み 儚く映った

daichi wo uruosu you ni kimi no namida wa
mune shimikomi hakanaku utsutta

Moistening the earth, your tears
Sank into my heart and for an instant, reflected it…

言葉だけではきっと
言い尽くせない 感情で溢れている
明日から訪れる 朝を共に
迎えていこう

kotoba dake de wa kitto
iitsukusenai kan’jou de afureteiru
asu kara otozureru asa wo tomo ni
mukaeteyukou

I’m overflowing with emotions
More than I can convey in words
From now on, let’s face the coming morning
Together

時空さえ超えて 罪を引きずる眼差しは
君を幸福へ 導いていくだろう

jikuu sae koete tsumi wo hikizuru manazashi wa
kimi wo shiawase e michibiiteikudarou

Overcoming even time and space, may my gaze, though fraught with sin
Lead you on to happiness…

漂う雲の下 たとえ 色褪せる時代も
変わらない命で 光 与えていける

tadayou kumo no shita tatoe iroaseru jidai mo
kawaranai inochi de hikari ataeteyukeru

Under the drifting clouds, even though the ages may fade
With this unchanging life, I can keep shining for you…

時空さえ超えて 罪を引きずる眼差しは
君を幸福へ 導いていくだろう

jikuu sae koete tsumi wo hikizuru manazashi wa
kimi wo shiawase e michibiiteikudarou

Overcoming even time and space, may my gaze, though fraught with sin
Lead you on to happiness…

    hello, i was wondering if you could do a translation for フタリゴト from uncanny instinct?

    • It is already on the list, I’ll probably do it relatively soon. ^^

    Could you recheck the line “ashita kara otozureru asa wo tomo ni”?
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKpvdo5pKmI The line starts around 2:30

    • Fixed it – I always get tripped up with that ashita/asu thing because since it’s the exact same word (not even any nuance differences) whether I hear asu or ashita my brain interprets it the same, even when I’m double checking romaji. >.>

  1. If you need the romaji lyrics to that song about mystia by sync.art, heres a link

    I love this song. it always made me cry wherever I listen to it. Better than those dubstep shit.
