ヒカリ~Miscarried Princess // Hikari

Those piano arpeggios remind me of NES games…

I feel pretty bad because I haven’t been able to keep up with this site as much as I’ve wanted to. I have a load of songs I want to translate, and on top of that regular requests and a few commissioned requests.

It looks like my job requires me to be a bit more social, and I haven’t really figured out the best way to do the preparation work for songs even during downtime at work ^^; I have to work a lot of weekends and so when I get a full day off, I just want to read all day. (Which is what I did all day yesterday – 花散里 was a good read.)

This is still one of my favorite things to do though – but either I’m going to have to get a lot faster at translating or I need to find more time to do it if I’m going to keep a good pace.

Well that’s a life update. Don’t leave me! ^^;

You may want to compare this song with this one: [ヒカリ]

   形を宿す。
光の糸が象られ、新たな命が
   生まれゆく。
 嗚呼、愛しい『 』

katachi wo yadosu.
hikari no ito ga katadorare, arata na inochi ga
umareyuku.
aa, itoshii “…”

Taking form,
  threads of light are shaped – A new life
    is born.
Ah, my beloved “…”

光のない世界でも
新たな光となれるよう
『私の描くままの世界を創りあげましょう。』

hikari no nai sekai demo
arata na hikari to nareru you
“watashi no egaku mama no sekai wo tsukuriagemashou.”

So that even this lightless world
Will itself become a new light
“Let us make a world just as I envision it.”

解放を掲ぐ乙女が、
彩る白亜と舞踊る。
季節も変わるように。
いつか全てが廻りに行く。

kaihou wo kakagu otome ga,
irodoru hakua to maiodoru.
kisetsu mo kawaru you ni.
itsuka subete ga mawari ni yuku.

A maiden heralding freedom and release,
Dances amongst white walls as they fill with color.
Just as the seasons change from one to the next
One day, all of of this will turn on its own.

そして、その全てに名を連ねるべくして
生れ出づる
ヒカリの形に名を与えるならば

soshite, sono subete ni na wo tsuranerubeku shite
umareidzuru
hikari no katachi ni na wo ataeru naraba

Now, should I name that life formed of light
Born
As I give list names for everything…

望むこと。
より完成された『世界』を創り上げる。そのために。

nozomu koto.
yori kansei sareta sekai wo tsukuri ageru. sono tame ni.

I would “hope”.
For this world to be ever more complete than the last.

求むこと。
一つの、自律存在としてここに。

motomu koto.
hitotsu no, jiritsu son’zai to shite koko ni.

I would “wish”.
To be a single and fully autonomous entity, in this world.

…在り続けるように。
ねぇ、愛しい『私の人形』

..aritsudzukeru you ni.
nee, itoshii “…”

…So that I would ever be so.
Right? My beloved doll, “…”

光のない世界から
新たな光を生んだように

hikari no nai sekai kara
arata na hikari wo un’da you ni

Just as you birthed a new light
From that lightless world,

かつて私を生み出したあなたに
近づきたい、その一心で。

katsute watashi wo umidashita anata ni
chikadzukitai, sono isshin’de.

With all my heart, I want to be closer to you,
Who once gave birth to me…

そして、望みのままに
手にかけた“それ”を省みもせず

soshite, nozomi no mama ni
te ni kaketa “sore” wo kaerimi mo sezu

Just as I wished, when I set
My hands on “it” – I didn’t look back

『世界』のためにと、捧げる祈りは
誰にも届く筈もなかった。

“sekai” no tame ni to, sasageru inori wa
dare ni mo todoku hazu mo nakatta.

My prayers lifted up, for the “world”
Surely would not have reached anyone.

祈ること。

inoru koto.

I would “pray”.

願うこと。

negau koto.

I would “desire”.

神になろうとして
光になろうとして
世界を作りあげる真似をして…

kami ni narou to shite
hikari ni narou to shite
sekai wo tsukuri ageru mane wo shite…

Trying to play god,
Trying to become light,
Going through the actions of creating a world…

そのあまりにも、拙い人形遊びは、止め処なく続いていく。

sono amari ni mo tsutanai nin’gyou asobi wa, tomedo naku tsudzuiteiku.

Those clumsy attempts at playing house with her dolls, continue without end.
