回路-kairo- (556t) – もう私の歌は聞こえない

mori
[picture by nazoko, detail]

Alone, but never alone: An amazing album.
I’ve already translate a song from it, right? Maybe more than one, if I’m not wrong. Oh, yep, 君と私と穏やかな旅 and 天地爛漫.
I planned on post this song yesterday, so expect one more post coming today or maybe tomorrow, one of those two days.
As I love that album, of course I like this song too.
Kairo is a great circle and it’s pretty sad that it’s overshadowed by tons of other mediocre circles.
Those hipster sentences are becoming the pulsing core of this wordpress, and I don’t think it’s a good thing. Whatever, I have to fill this space somehow.
The title for this song is really similar to the title of the original theme. So, if we translate Mystia‘s theme in english (according to the “unofficial” translation), we have “Deaf all but the song”.
This song’s title, translated in a similar way, could be “Deaf all but MY song”.

回路-kairo- – もう私の歌は聞こえない

もう気付いて欲しい
いつからだろう
時は過ぎ去って
身体も無い

mou kidzuite hoshii
itsu kara darou
toki wa sugisatte
karada mo nai

I want you to realize it already,
But when will you?
The time passes by
Without a body

残せるものは
歌声だけだったのに
この声の先には誰もいないんだ

nokoseru mono wa
utagoe dake datta no ni
kono koe no saki ni wa dare mo inainda

And because the only thing left
Was just my singing voice,
Before it there lies no one

夜に溶けてゆく私の歌
どこまで響いてしまうだろう

yoru ni tokete yuku watashi no uta
doko made hibiite shimau darou

Where will my voice, melting towards the night,
End up echoing?

耳を塞いで聞こえぬように
誰にも届きませんように

mimi o fusaide kikoenu you ni
dare ni mo todokimasen you ni

Covering my ears so I can’t hear anything,
Wishing it won’t reach not a single soul…

いつか声も枯れて
ああ良かったと思う

itsuka koe mo karete
aa yokatta to omou

Eventually, my voice will dry out too…
Aahh, I think that would be good…

狂わなくて済むと
そっと息を吐く

kuruwanakute sumu to
sotto iki o haku

And if I’d end it without going mad,
I’ll let out a gentle breath

これで良いんだ
これだけで良かったんだ
気付けないそのまま
また喉を震わす

kore de ii nda
kore dake de yokatta nda
kidzukenai sono mama
mata nodo o furuwasu

But it’s fine as it is,
It was good enough with that alone;
As no one would notice me
I made my throat ring again

夜に溶けてゆく私の歌
どこまで響いてしまうだろう

yoru ni tokete yuku watashi no koe
doko made hibiite shimau darou

Where will my voice, melting towards the night,
End up echoing?

風向き読んで飛んでゆくよ
誰にも届きはしない方へ

kazamuki yonde tonde yuku yo
dare ni mo todoki wa shinai kata e

Reading the wind’s direction I start flying
Towards somewhere no one else could reach

そうさ
本当は
嫌なんだ

sousa
hontou wa
iya nanda

That’s right
But I actually
Hate this

ああ
嫌なんだ
独りは

aa
iyananda
hitori wa

Aaahh,
I hate it,
Being alone…

夜に溶けてゆく私の歌
どこまでも響いて欲しいよ

yoru ni tokete yuku watashi no uta
doko made mo hibiite hoshii yo

I want my voice, melting towards the night,
To resound around, anywhere

耳を澄ませて聞こえるように
誰かに届いてくれるように

mimi o sumasete kikoeru you ni
dare ka ni todoite kureru you ni

I concentrate so I can hear clearly,
So I could be reached by someone…

千年先のその先まで
いつまでも続いてく歌を

sen’nen saki no sono saki made
itsu made mo tsudzuite ku uta o

Just before that thousand years threshold
My resounding song will go on and on…

決して溶けない私の歌
これはそんな夜に舞う歌

kesshite tokenai watashi no uta
kore wa sonna yoru ni mau uta

My song, that won’t melt away no matter what,
Is the song I dance to during such nights

More music!

I have another wordpress, 感激宴会 ~ kangeki enkai in which I translate non-touhou / non-anime / non-doujin / non-videogame japanese music, mainly post-rock, shoegaze and indie songs.
It’s a bit different from Foreground Noises, but it’s about a type of music which fits my tastes better.
Check it out if you want! It’s a good chance to find out about some hidden gems and enjoy some good not-so-popular music. Click the logo to reach the website!

About foregroundnoises

I love music more than everything; I'm also a (shamefully mediocre) bass player and wannabe composer / writer (only in my dreams). Also interested in astronomy, traveling, theatre, literature, poetry, art, movies, mostly everything from Japan and other stuff. I'm also okay with anime stuff as long as I don't have to deal with weeaboos. Touhou project? Love it! Gaki no Tsukai? Love it! Foreground Eclipse? Of course I love them! I'm an university student, I study japanese since years for unknown reasons and I managed to get a degree on japanese language & culture (currently 進学中). I'm italian, but I can (almost) perfectly understand english.
