Moonlight Shines

Requested by: Alice Margatroid

I meant to get this out yesterday, but sleep got in the way.

A classic. I remember when FELT first branched off of Hatsunetsu Mikos and everyone went crazy over them.

This is the FELT method applied to Flandre, haha.

The image I get is a contemplative Flandre who succumbs to instinct.

Notes:
I can’t decide whether “following the threads of fate, I found darkness” is supposed to be a positive inversion of what you might usually say, “I found light” (thus more along the lines of “I finally found darkness”), or as just negative thing (thus more along the lines of “I found only darkness”).

月が昇りはじめた頃 満たされてゆく身体
七色光る翼は そっと色を変え 閉じていく

tsuki ga noborihajimeta koro mitasareteyuku karada
nanairo hikaru tsubasa wa sotto iro wo kae tojiteiku

Once the moon begins its climb, I feel something within me fulfilled
My seven-colored wings silently changing their hues as they close upon me

鳴り響く時計の針がやがて
心を 壊していくようだから
染まった赤い瞳を閉じたまま
両手で耳を塞いだ 月が消えるまで

narihibiku tokei no hari ga yagate
kokoro wo kowashiteiku you dakara
somatta akai hitomi wo tojita mama
ryoute de mimi wo fusaida tsuki ga kieru made

When I listen to the sound of the clock’s hands ticking
It feels as if my heart is being shattered to pieces
So with my stained red eyes tightly shut, I wait —
My hands held tightly over my ears, until the moon disappears

絶望の海を 泳ぎきる前に どうか いかせて
運命の糸を 辿って 闇をみつけた

zetsubou no umi wo oyogikiru mae ni dou ka ikasete
un’mei no ito wo tadotte yami wo mitsuketa

Before I swim my way through this sea of despair, please — let me go
Following the threads of fate, I found darkness

未知なる世界に触れて 身体も心も失くすなら

michi naru sekai ni furete karada mo kokoro mo nakusu nara

If I am to lose my body and soul when I touch the world unknown to me, I…

閉じてた翼広げ華麗に舞い散る 心に潜む欲望
染まった 赤い体を覆うように 光をくぐり 走るの 夜が明ける前に

tojiteta tsubasa hiroge karei ni maichiru kokoro ni hisomu yokubou
somatta akai karada wo oou you ni hikari wo kuguri hashiru no yoru ga akeru mae ni

I spread my wings, as desires once lurking in my heart now dance about me
Shielding my red stained body I race under beams of light, before dawn fully breaks

閉じ込めた思い 昇る月と共に忘れゆくの
潤う唇 拭って闇に戻ろう

tojikometa omoi noboru tsuki to tomo ni wasureyuku no
uruou kuchibiru futte yami ni modorou

As the moon rises I forget the thoughts locked within me
Wiping my damp lips, I return to the dark

絶望の海を 泳ぎきる前に どうか いかせて
運命の糸を 辿って 闇をみつけた

zetsubou no umi wo oyogikiru mae ni douka ikasete
un’mei no ito wo tadotte yami wo mitsuketa

Before I swim my way through this sea of despair, please — let me go
Following the threads of fate, I found darkness

閉じ込めた思い 昇る月と共に忘れゆくの
潤う唇 拭って闇に戻ろう

tojikometa omoi noboru tsuki to tomo ni wasureyuku no
uruou kuchibiru futte yami ni modorou

As the moon rises I forget the thoughts locked within me
Wiping my damp lips, I return to the dark

拭って闇に戻ろう。。。

futte yami ni modorou…

I return to the dark…

君の夢 // Kimi no Yume

Requested by: Emma

It’s been a while since I’ve translated such a lovely song.

There’s a little subject confusion in the original I didn’t try too hard to correct, but I’d suggest the only the quotes in the small two line stanzas were spoken by the narrator.

静かに伸びる 白いヒコウキ雲
窓から覗いた景色は まだ変わらないまま
無邪気に笑う 君のあどけなさも
ふわりと漂う 心を揺さぶるその懐かしい薫り

shizuka ni nobiru shiroi hikoukigumo
mado kara nozoita keshiki wa mada kawaranai mama
mujaki ni warau kimi no adokenasa mo
fuwari to tadayou kokoro wo yusaburu sono natsukashii kaori

Silently, white jet streams stretch across the sky
The view outside my window really hasn’t changed one bit,
Neither has the innocence in your lighthearted smile
Nor the nostalgic fragrance shaking my heart as it drifts by

「今投げ出してしまえたら 楽なのに」
こんなにも弱い心から 飛びたとうよ翼広げて

“ima nagedashiteshimaetara raku nano ni”
kon’na ni mo yowai kokoro kara tobitatou yo tsubasa hirogete

“If I gave up now, everything would be so much easier…”
But instead I’ll spread my wings, and fly away from this weak heart of mine

繰り返すメロディー 呼んでいる想いを乗せて
巡り会う いつしか同じ場所で
君が強く熱く願うなら 何があってもきっと大丈夫って
うなずいて また歩き出す

kurikaesu melody yon’deiru omoi wo nosete
meguriau itsushika onaji basho de
kimi ga tsuyoku atsuku negau nara nani ga attemo kitto daijoubu tte
unazuite mata aruikidasu

A melody repeats, carrying emotions calling out to me
And suddenly I’m back in the same place we once met
“As long as you wish for it with all your might, I’m sure everything will be alright.”
I nod, and we keep walking

優しく揺れる 木々は波のように
ひとひら舞い散る 花びらさえ美しいほど
過ぎ行く時間が 刻む想い出達
小さく響いた足音 寂しくこだまする長い道

yasashiku yureru kigi wa nami no you ni
hitohira maichiru hanabira sae utsukushii hodo
sugiyuku toki ga kizamu omoidetachi
chisaku hibiita ashioto sabishiku kodama suru nagai michi

The gently swaying trees are like waves on water
Memories I’ve made through time, as beautiful
As each flower petal as it drifts to the ground
The sound of footsteps echo lonesomely down this long road

「今泣き出してしまったら どうしよう」
こんなにも脆い自分から 抜け出そうよ夢を掲げて

“ima nakidashiteshimattara doushiyou”
kon’na ni mo moroi jibun’ kara nukedasou yo yume wo kakagete

“What if I fall apart, and break out in tears…?”
But no, I’ll take hold of my dreams, and break out of my weak self

口ずさむメロディー 込み上げる想いを奏で
振り返り 感じた幼い日々
少し震えて見えたその手も 何があっても君を守るんだって
誓うから また強くなる

kuchizusamu melody komiageru omoi wo kanade
furikaeri kan’jita osanai hibi
sukoshi furuete mieta sono te mo nani ga attemo kimi wo mamorun’datte
chikau kara mata tsuyoku naru

I hum a melody, letting out the emotions welling up inside me
And I turn back, to those days when we were young
Your hand was shaking when you said, “No matter what happens, I’ll protect you.”
I promise, I’ll be strong

ほら 手をとって また歩き出そう

hora te wo totte mata arukidasou

Take my hand, and let’s keep walking

Roll Ground

Comissioned by: TouhouTrader

Without making a judgment on the song as a whole, there are some really, really good one liners in these lyrics, in my opinion. I know it’s not, but this song feels like more of a Kaguya song… that is if Kaguya was in any way pure – (she is not).

Notes:

“Innocent hearts” – really more like “springy” or “energetic” but in the end it means “innocent” like a child’s pure heart.

沈む夕陽が はじまりの合図のようで 背すじを伸ばす
終わりのない退屈な日々 新しい風に ふいに出逢うの
現在を確かめるように

shizumu yuuhi ga hajimari no aizu no you de sesuji wo nobasu
owari no nai taikutsu na hibi atarashii kaze ni fui ni deau no
ima wo tashikameru you ni

Feeling the setting sun a sign of something beginning, I stretch my back.
Unexpectedly, I feel a new wind upon these endless days of boredom
As if it were confirming the moment…

澄んだ夜空を 泳ぐ 星だけが 僕を知っている
ナミダ 溜息 隠してくれたね

sun’da yozora wo oyogu hoshi dake ga boku wo shitteiru
namida tameiki kakushitekureta ne

Only the stars swimming in the night sky really know me…
You hid your tears and sighs from me didn’t you?

ツヨク 望み抱いた 愛を呑み込んで
君に 残した 白い光に託そう
ついた 嘘の数だけ 息を止めたなら
君へ 溢れる想いの 一つは伝わるかな

tsuyoku nozomidaita ai wo nomikon’de
kimi ni nokoshita shiroi hikari ni takusou
tsuita uso no kazu dake iki wo tometa nara
kimi e afureru omoi no hitotsu wa tsutawaru kana

Suppressing the love I’d embraced with hope so strongly
I instead entrust it to the light I’ve left behind for you
If I held my breath for all the times I’ve lied,
Would at least one of my overflowing feelings reach you?

誘うような 紅い雲を眺め あの星を想う また今日も
さよならと告げた 瞬間から 僕らは きっと はずむ心
失くしてしまったんだよ

sasou you na akai kumo wo nagame ano hoshi wo omou mata kyou mo
sayonara to tsugeta toki kara bokura wa kitto hazumu kokoro
nakushiteshimattan’ da yo

Watching crimson clouds I feel calling out to me, I think of the stars once again today
From the moment we each said goodbye, surely then we lost our once
Innocent hearts

読み合う 互いの 理想はぼやけて
答えを探っては 独りよがり だったのかな

yomiau tagai no risou wa boyakete
kotae wo sagutte wa hitoriyogari datta no kana

In reading each other, our ideals become unclear
Was it my own self-pride that I sought out an answer?

何も恐れのない この未来こそが
僕を 小さな部屋に 閉じ込めているの
蒔いた 秘密の種 夢で咲かせては
君に 話してみたい 物語を作ってた

nani mo osore no nai kono mirai koso ga
boku wo chiisa na heya ni tojikometeiru no
maita himitsu no tane yume de sakasete wa
kimi ni hanashitemitai monogatari wo tsukutteta

It is a future that does -not- hold any fears for me
That locks me away into this small room.
In order to make blossom with dreams secret seeds I planted
I want to talk to you; I wrote a story…

ツヨク 望み抱いた 愛を呑み込んで
君に 残した 白い光に託そう
ついた 嘘の数だけ 息を止めるなら
君へ 溢れる想いは こみあげる想いは
どうか 消えはしないで

tsuyoku nozomidaita ai wo nomikon’de
kimi ni nokoshita shiroi hikari ni takusou
tsuita uso no kazu dake iki wo tomeru nara
kimi e afureru omoi wa komiageru omoi wa
douka kie wa shinaide

Suppressing the love I’d embraced with hope so strongly
I instead entrust it to the light I’ve left behind for you
If I could hold my breath for all the times I’ve lied,
Would these overflowing feelings, these feelings for you
Somehow not disappear?

I Wish

Requested by: GoldenArcher96, Abigail, and others.

The PV that goes along with this song was MinamitsuxNue, so I’m going to run with it.

So right now I’m typing on a 17 year old keyboard. Some things never break! It’s before they invented soft keys though so it’s a little loud D: – I’m thinking about trying to type on a keyboard in my lap instead of on my laptop keyboard to see if that helps my hands from aching like they have been lately.

Notes:
“It reminds me of your broad back…” ← Not my fault. The metaphor going on here is enough to give me a headache… I mean I really like what’s happening in the song, but the wording’s just a little… ^^;;;;;;;;

“When I wish upon a star” (x2)

はるか遠い場所で
かすかに聞こえる声が
呼んでいるような気がして
じっと耳をすましてた

haruka tooi basho de
kasuka ni kikoeru koe ga
yon’deiru you na ki ga shite
jitto mimi wo sumashiteta

I thought I heard
A voice calling me
Off somewhere far away,
So I pause and listen…

あの手のぬくもりが
頭から離れなくて
そっと瞳を閉じてた

ano te no nukumori ga
atama kara hanarenakute
sotto me wo tojiteta

I cannot forget
The warmth of your hands;
I just close my eyes…

“When I wish upon a star… close to you”

“When I wish upon a star, I wish that I’d be close to you…”

夜の帳がおりる頃に
さぁ まばゆいほど光る世界で君を探そう

yoru no tobari ga oriru koro ni
saa mabayui hodo hikaru sekai de kimi wo sagasou

As the curtain of night falls,
I search for you in the bright and dazzling world above.

追いかけても こぼれそうな星空は果てしなくて
君の背中のように
問いかけても 答えのない星達に届くのかな
このゆらめき

oikaketemo koboresou na hoshizora wa hateshinakute
kimi no senaka no you ni
toikaketemo kotae no nai hoshitachi ni todoku no kana
kono yurameki

No matter how fast I chase, this overflowing starry sky is endless
It reminds me of your broad back…
No matter how many times I ask, do my trembling emotions even reach
These unanswering stars…?

君への想いを響かせて

kimi e no omoi wo hibikasete

Still, I let my feelings for you ring…

かけぬけてく時空を
やがてその日が来るまで
見守っていてほしいよ
いつか巡り会えるから

kakenuketeku toki wo
yagate sono hi ga kuru made
mimamotteite hoshii yo
itsuka meguriaeru kara

I want to keep watch
Over time as it races by
Until finally the day comes
When we find each other

たとえ形のない
姿に変わっていても
気づいてくれるかな?

tatoe katachi no nai
sugata ni kawatteitemo
kidzuitekureru ka na?

Would you realize it was me
Even if I had become
Something that had no form?

“When I wish upon a star… close to you”

“When I wish upon a star, I wish that I’d be close to you…”

深い闇に包まれる頃
ねぇ まばゆいほど光る世界で君を探そう

fukai yami ni tsutsumareru koro
nee mabayui hodo hikaru sekai de kimi wo sagasou

As deep darkness embraces me all around,
I search for you in the bright and dazzling world above.

追いかけても 越えられない 限りなく高い空へ
もっとスピード上げて
呼びかけても 答えのない 穏やかな淡い光
今この手に

oikaketemo koerarenai kagirinaku takai sora e

yobikaketemo kotae no nai odayaka na awai hikari

No matter how fast I chase, I cannot overcome this endlessly distant sky
I keep going faster and faster…
No matter how many times I call out, the faint lights above do not answer.
But now, with one in reach…

君への願いを抱きしめて

kimi e no negai wo dakishimete

I embrace my wishes, thinking of you…

抱きしめてよ
どんな時も
そばにいてよ
飛んでゆくよ
たとえ遥か遠く 星の彼方でも

Embrace me…
Always…
Stay close to me…
I’ll fly,
Beyond these distant stars if I have to!

“君に手を伸ばした”

kimi ni te wo nobashita

“I reach my hand out to you…”

“When I wish upon a star… close to you”

“When I wish upon a star, I wish that I’d be close to you…”

煌めく夢が消える前に
さぁ まばゆいほど光る世界に君を映そう

kirameku yume ga kieru mae ni
saa mabayui hodo hikaru sekai ni kimi wo utsusou

Before this sparkling dream ends,
I picture you in the bright and dazzling world above.

追いかけても こぼれそうな星空は果てしなくて
君の背中のように
問いかけても 答えのない星達に届くのかな
この高なりを突き抜けて

oikaketemo koboresou na hoshizora wa hateshinakute
kimi no senaka no you ni
toikaketemo kotae no nai hoshitachi ni todoku no kana
kono takanari wo tsukinukete

No matter how fast I chase, this overflowing starry sky is endless
It reminds me of your broad back…
No matter how many times I ask, do I ever reach these unanswering stars?
I raise my voice, higher and higher…

追いかけても 越えられない 限りなく高い空へ
もっとスピード上げて
呼びかけても答えのない 穏やかな淡い光
今この手に

oikaketemo koerarenai kagirinaku takai sora e

No matter how fast I chase, I cannot overcome this endlessly distant sky
I keep going faster and faster…
No matter how many times I call out, the faint lights above do not answer.
But now, with one in reach…

君への願いを抱きしめて
君への想いを受け止めて

kimi e no negai wo dakishimete
kimi e no omoi wo uketomete

I embrace my wishes, thinking of you…
Please, take these feelings of mine!

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.”

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

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

“This red thread…
Where does it lead? What is it pointing to?”
Without a sound,

With this unchanging life, I can keep shining for you…

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

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

(Side Note: I have updated my requests policy! See the About page for details.)

Since I’ve got my computer up and working again I thought I’d go ahead and make sure it could do all the things I need it to do – (handling high-speed anthy functions, ie. song transcribing/translating) and everything seems to be going a lot faster. >:D

Well this has been on my queue for very long (though it wasn’t actually on the list because I always had trouble finding the lyrics) ^^;

Notes:
“Whenever I feel pain” has the has a more specific meaning of “when I feel pain in relation to time” – you can interpret this as feeling pain at the passing of time, feeling pain at racing through an area where time has stopped, feeling pain “from time to time” in relation to memories, or time to time in relation to physical exertion (from sprinting).

“over the rainbow” as in a Wizard of Oz reference. It’s night for the duration of the song, so she’s recalling a past event. (Image of Sakuya dancing down the Yellow Brick Road will not leave my mind now o.o;)

I stop time, breaking for a sigh at my everyday routine, but still
I smile at the light filtering in through the window
As I look out at the night sky and its flowers suspended in mid-air, I feel
A nostalgic pain, which becomes hope for me to face tomorrow

I place all of my nostalgic past before me, add color and fall asleep
Instead of looking back, I’d rather paint my feelings for the future

When I finally brought myself to face the pain I’d carried all this time
I saw a morning in which I knew I’d find my answer
Unable to contain myself, I sang, and my song reverberated in this small room
As I kept singing, letting out my voice

色とりどりのキャンバスに さらに色を足してみよう

I don’t want to take my eyes off the world spread out beyond this window
The beautiful moon rises into the sky, beyond my grasp and lovely as always
And the stars shining above… it’s as if they are smiling
I silently prayed that after each twinkling, none would go out

Requested by: GoldenArcher96, plus I’d been wanting to do this for a while.

I love FELT.

Notes:
The roles here are played by: 幽々子 and 幽々子 and Cherry Blossoms/Ayakashi as a metaphorical extention of 幽々子. I love songs like this to death, but making them make sense in English is always a challenge >.> – Also, almost every single ambiguous phrase link in the translation is either just as ambiguous or more ambiguous in the original lyrics. I only tried to add a little suggestion this way or that way for sanity, but since they’re all attributed to Yuyuko ANYWAY, it’s all good.

Setting it aflower, turning the world to spring as she waited for death

開かれる花ビラ 舞う風のように強く
失って 壊れゆく 後悔もすべて忘れて
辿る軌跡 最後に 思い出のかけら見せて
消えてゆく 記憶にまだ 薄く残る幸せをのせて

hirakareru hanabira mau kaze no you ni tsuyoku
ushinatte kowareyuku koukai mo subete wasurete
tadoru kiseki saigo ni omoide no kakera misete
kieteyuku kioku ni mada usuku nokoru shiawase wo nosete

The released flower petals dance strongly as they wind
Knowing her loss, expiring, forgetting even regret
Tracing lines and motions in the end they show fragments of memories
As they disappear portraying a faint happiness left within them

彼女が眠りにつき いくつもの年を越え
咲かなくなった木の下で
突然現れた君が 見つめたその瞳に
映した 春への扉

kanojo ga nemuri ni tsuki ikutsu mo no toshi wo koe
sakanakunatta ki no shita de
totsuzen arawareta kimi ga mitsumeta sono hitomi ni
utsushita haru e no tobira

She laid to rest and many years passed her by
Under this tree that no longer would blossom
When you suddenly appeared, in those eyes
Shone a gate leading unto spring

強い眼差しの奥に 閉ざされた君を思い
一つ一つただ大切に 拾い集め 君に春を届けに

tsuyoi manazashi no oku ni tozasareta kimi wo omoi
hitotsu hitotsu tada taisetsu ni hiroiatsume kimi ni haru wo todoke ni

In that strong gaze, I think of you locked away
Carefully gathering fragments one by one to bring spring to you

失った記憶は 心奪われる瞬間に
涌き上がり 魅せられた 時に零れ落ちてく涙
春を集め君を 救うと誓った日から
運命を取り戻した いつまでも眠る 君を呼んでる

ushinatta kioku wa kokoro ubawareru shunkan ni
wakiagari miserareta toki ni koboreochiteku namida
haru wo atsume kimi wo sukuu to chikatta hi kara
unmei wo torimodoshita itsu made mo nemuru kimi wo yondeiru

Those lost memories in that moment my heart was swept away
Boiled up inside of me and in that moment I was entranced, overflowing with tears
Ever since that day I swore I would save you I gathered spring
I took back fate, calling you in your eternal sleep

咲き乱れ始めた空 桜は蝶のように舞ってる
涙零れ落ちて 震えも止められないの
大きく叫んだ瞬間 微かに感じた
君はすぐにまた消えた

sakimidarehajimeta sora sakura wa chou no you ni matteiru
namida koboreochite furuemo tomerarenai no
ookiku sakenda shunkan kasuka ni kanjita
kimi wa sugu ni mata kieta

Now the sky has started to blossom in profusion, cherry blossom dancing like butterflies
I cannot stop these tears from overflowing, or myself from trembling
That instant I cried out I felt faintly… something – and then
You disappeared again right away

開かれる花ビラ 舞う風のように強く
優しく 包まれる 時に零れ落ちてく 笑顔
あの日 君に触れて 感じた気持ちのまま
永遠に出会う事なく 満開で咲く 君を待っている

hirakareru hanabira mau kaze no you ni tsuyoku
yasashiku tsutsumareru toki ni koboreochiteku egao
ano hi kimi ni furete kanjita kimochi no mama
eien ni deau koto naku mankai de saku kimi wo matteiru

The released flower petals dance strongly as they wind
And as I am gently embraced I overflow with smiles
The feeling I felt that day when I touched you will never go away
Though I will never see you, I wait for you in full bloom
