[REQUEST] ふぉれすとぴれお – 心象風景

remmm

【Requested by Helly

Septette for a Dead Princess is probably the most arranged theme ever. Or at least one of the top 10 most arranged.
This is not even the first post which is an arrange of it, but I don’t care as long as it sounds good.
And this does, really!
This song was really easy to transcribe, but not to translate.
I’ve studied some classical japanese, and this song is full of it.
While I don’t claim to be an expert of heian-period japanese grammar, I’m pretty sure I didn’t f*ck everything up.

ふぉれすとぴれお – 心象風景

夢から覚めては永遠に夢を見た
高く照らしゆく、紅くなりし月夜よ
私はそう思い出す あなたと描いた風景

yume kara samete wa eien ni yume o mita
takaku terashi yuku, akaku narishi tsukiyo yo
watashi wa sou omoidasu anata to egaita fuukei

I had an eternal dream each time I woke up from another
There was a moonlit night turnt crimson, getting more and more radiant
That’s what I recall, a scenery I’ve drawn with you

紅色染まる 両の頬をなでるそよ風
辿る足跡 いつの世も忘れずいるよ

akaiiro somaru ryou no hoho o naderu soyo kaze
tadoru ashiato itsu no yo mo wasurezu iru yo

A gentle wind softly caresses both my cheeks, painted in red;
The footsteps which follow me shan’t forget the world from back then

月夜を染める、高く舞う恋歌
今にはもうこの世にあらざるあなたへと奏でよう
心に描く心象風景
あなたの手を握って歩いた景色 思い出せずに

tsukiyo o someru, takaku mau renka
ima ni wa mou kono yo ni arazaru anata e to kanadeyou
kokoro ni egaku shinshoufuukei
anata no te o nigitte aruita keshiki omoidasezu ni

Paint this moonlit night, rising love song of mine,
Dance towards thou, who aren’t part of this world anymore;
The imaginated landscape drawn inside my heart…
As I can’t recall the scenery of me walking holding thy hand…

大地を埋める、広く咲く花よ
日傘の中 その地に踏み込み あなたのため摘み行こう
心に描く心象風景
あなたがもう遠くなりにけり
私 生き続けてる ずっと生き続けるよ

daichi o umeru, hiroku saku hana yo
higasa no naka sono chi ni fumikomi anata no tame tsumiyukou
kokoro ni egaku shinshoufuukei
anata ga mou tookunari ni keri
watashi ikitsudzuketeru zutto ikitsudzukeru yo

Bury the Earth’s ground, oh widely blooming flower!
Stepping into this ground inside my parasol, I’ll pick it for you;
The imaginated landscape drawn inside my heart…
Thou art grown far, far away already
And I… I’ll keep living, I’ll keep on living forever.

夢から覚めては永遠に夢を見た
高く照らしゆく、紅くなりし月夜よ
あなたと描いた遠い 心象風景

yume kara samete wa eien ni yume o mita
takaku terashi yuku, akaku narishi tsukiyo yo
anata to egaita tooi shinshoufuukei

I had an eternal dream since when I woke up from the other
There was a moonlit night turnt crimson, getting more and more radiant
That’s the faraway imaginated landscape I’ve drawn with you-

Notes:

– I don’t like how I translated the first stanza, but couldn’t find a better way. The song says “yume” two times on the same line, so I tried my best not to write “dream” twice. Hope it doesn’t sound strange to you as it sounds to me.
– Hope I didn’t f*ck up the use of “arcaic” english sometimes. I tried to convey the old verb forms in japanese into english. I’ve probably failed. Let me know if anything’s wrong.
– There’s nothing that can confirm who’s the subject of the second stanza. Could be both “you” or “me”. I used “me”, but they’re both possibilities.

I'm a 23 y.o. italian guy, I have a degree in japanese language & culture and I'm currently advancing in my studies. I love music but I'm too self-destructive to attempt to produce it myself. Sometimes I gaze at my shoes and think it's a nice genre. Mainly translating japanese music lyrics (Touhou / doujin / indie / etc) and Gaki no Tsukai clips (worked with Team Gaki too). 宜しくお願いしマスタースパーク。
