然様ならば。 // Sayou naraba.

Flavor text: “Maid of the Perfect”

I have many other songs to get to and I will get to them, but I want to translate a few of the songs on Sakuraame Cinematographe first.

(Looks like I just broke through 666 tags \o/)

Since this album is currently “rare” [YT-Link]

Notes:

全自動少女 “Zen’jidoushoujo/Automata Girl” is a sort of <echo>Project spin-off group.
飴野ヲルカ “Ameno Orca” is a collaboration of Mano and 平茸 from <echo>Project
飴野はるつみ “Ameno Harutsumi” is according to Automata Girl, a “Mysterious Newcomer”

I read “one words” as “one word’s” as in “one word is to be necessary”.

然様ならば。
 Sayou naraba.
 If that is all.

My life, my work, maid of the perfect
Only one words to be necessary
If morning comes, I return to solitude again
As you said, I only live

然様ならば 彼の空も自由すらも置棄て
踊らされ 告げるだけ 今日は之にて

sayou naraba ano sora mo jiyuu sura mo okisute
odorasare tsugeru dake kyou wa kore nite

If that is all, the far off skies, even freedom I relinquish,
Made only to dance and report, and that is all for today.

My life, my work, maid of the perfect
Only one words to be necessary
As for the tablecloth, white, the wine are crimson
It’s not a special thing as you said

然様ならば 美しき薔薇には触れぬやう
微笑んで 死ぬるだけ 今日は之にて

sayou naraba utsukushiki bara ni wa furenu you
hohoen’de shinuru dake kyou wa kore nite

If that is all, to not touch such a beautiful rose,
I only smile and die, and that is all for today.

月灯り 手を翳し アルクトゥルスとスピカに
照らされて 踊るだけ 今宵は共に
然様ならば やがて来る時の針を止めて
戯れに耽るだけ 今日は之にて

tsukiakari te wo kazashi arcturus to spica ni
terasarete odoru dake koyoi wa tomo ni
sayou naraba yagate kuru toki no hari wo tomete
tawamure ni fukeru dake kyou wa kore nite

Against the moonlight I lift my hand; bathed in the light of
Arcturus and Spica, tonight, together, we only dance.
If that is all, then time I stop, before the end has come,
Only to indulge in this sweet moment, and that is all for today.

然様ならば

sayou naraba

If that is all…

    Great job as always on the translation! Also yeah, I think you’re the only person to have a full song of this album up across all music/video hosting sites as far as I am aware. Automata Girl previously being a unknown circle to me before checking out your “Anticipating C83” post, I have driven myself half-crazy looking and waiting for something of this album to come up. Thank you, and I eagerly await your next translation!

    • Automata Girl is an offshoot of <echo>Project, arranged by the same guys that did “Mary Had a Little Love” (so give that a listen too :D)

      I really love this album, so expect a lot of translations from it.

      I’ll probably put the songs up as I get to them. ^^;

  1. I keep hearing “然様なら” as “さよなら”… I believe this is not what the arranger intended though, it’s just me > <. To me this song seems not as good as those in "Mary had a little love", but it's still good to hear project released new songs. I was so crazy about them back then!
By the way, can you take a look at “洞源奇章” by project in their album “[neutrino*]” (when you get some spare time)? It’s a 2009 album so it’s pretty old, and you can find the song easily on youtube. I don’t know if you’ve listened to this song, if not, give it a try, and translate it if you like it! (oh what am I saying here? sorry…no offense!)
    I really enjoy your translations and I admire you for keep doing it for 3 years (or more?), so please continue and I’ll be supporting you (精神的に)!

  1. No trackbacks yet.
