A Lavender in Valley

Requested by: FallingPotato

Sorry for the hiatus, and sorry for not getting around to responding to everyone’s request comments yet!! I’m still making up hours at work for being sick, and I just got a confirmation that I’ve made it to the interview stage for a CIR position with JET in Japan, so I’ll be a bit preoccupied with that as well as reading through a series I’ve been trying to get through… But! I will still translate at try to address at least some of these requests. I’m not ignoring you!

I tried to make as much as sense of this song as I could, in particular the last stanza’s a bit all over the place… This song is best drank drunk.

I still think some of the one-liners, like 螺旋霰 泡ごと 割れてキラキラ and that line about the lion are pretty awesome.

およしなされ 酷な外は殺陣
いつぶりかと 言えるのか君

oyoshi nasare koku na soto wa tate
itsuburi ka to ieru no ka kimi

Come hither, for outside these bounds is cruel war.
But can you even pretend it’s been long since we last met?

螺旋 armor-ray どこへでも往ね紫桜
春は花 夏に余韻 冷たく光る

rasen’ armor-ray doko e demo ine shizakura
haru wa hana natsu ni yoin’ tsumetaku hikaru

Spiral Armor Ray – Go as far as ever you will, Lavender Blossoms!
Spring is for flowers, lingering into summer, coldly shining.

Lavender valley
秋 遥か 冬に遠い 孤高の空よ

lavender valley
are wa mou kareteshimau wa
aki haruka fuyu ni tooi kokou no sora

Lavender Valley
They will soon wither.
Distant in autumn, further in winter, is the majestic and desolate sky.

(we only want. easy. Darling you sally)
嘆き交う ぐずる 飴色 音色
影みたく 後に続きなさいな

(we only want. easy. darling you sally)
nagekikau guzuru ameiro neiro
kagemitaku ato ni tsudzukinasai na

(We only want. Easy. Darling you, Sally)
Lamenting to each other in candy colored tones,
Linger on reaching like a shadow.

いくつになろう (slowly slowly)
白馬乗りの姫 (make it, homies)
お姫様へ (ain’t lonely)

ikutsu ni narou (slowly slowly)
hakubanori no hime (make it, homies)
ohime sama e (ain’t lonely)
mitsugu mi ga kanashigatta

How many will there be, (Slowly, slowly)
Princesses riding on white horses? (Make it, homies)
Those supporting the princesses (Ain’t lonely)
Looked sorrowful to me.

螺旋 armor-ray 推し量れない心よ
鬣 濡らす程に 吠えるライオン

rasen’ armor-ray oshihakarenai kokoro yo
tategami nurasu hodo ni hoeru lion

Spiral Armor Ray – Oh unfathomable heart!
Oh lion roaring so much to drench your mane!

Lavender valley
津々浦々 者の常 宿り木におれ

lavender valley
ikurademo yamu sokonashi
tsutsuuraura mono no tsune yadoriki ni ore

Lavender Valley
Countless abyssally suffering,
The neutral state for every living thing, bend to mistletoe.

(we only want. easy. Darling you sally)
なぜ違う 道の終わりばかりが
果てしなく 狂い咲け 色 音色

(we only want. easy. darling you sally)
naze chigau michi no owaribakari ga
hateshinaku kuruizake iro neiro

(We only want. Easy. Darling you, Sally)
Why is this different? Only the end of the road
Is endlessly blossoming with colors and tones.

あらゆる共鳴 (maybe no beat)

arayuku kyoumei (maybe no beat)
kaigajou ni araburu wa

Each and every resonance (maybe no beat)
Wrecks its way through the colorgraph

螺旋霰 泡ごと 割れてキラキラ
数限りない虚像に 担がれたまで

rasen’arare awagoto warete kirakira
kazukagirinai kyozou ni katsugareta made

Spiral hail, with it each transient moment shattered
Until it lifts up an unlimited number of fantasies.

Lavender valley
夜は川 上に堕ち 序の口よ まぁだ

lavender valley
anata e omiseshimasu ka
yoru wa kawa ue ni ochi jo no kuchi yo maada

Lavender valley
Shall I show you?
The night is a river that falls upwards apart, but this is only the beginning.

もう断ち切って やれ泣くは櫓に契り化粧
奪いの雨 愛していたわすべて ああ 嫌な夜明け

mou tachikitte yarenaku wa yagura ni chigiri keshou
ubai no ame aishiteita wa subete aa iya na yoake

By the time this is all done, my weeping will be in the tower vowing beside my makeup
The rain washes everything away… I loved you, everything. Ah, how I hate the dawn.

  1. So I /was/ hearing “lion” somewhere… I’m afraid I can’t drink and can’t really appreciate the lyrics, but still the song is one of Sally’s best.
