<echo>PROJECT – meridian ~霧雨魔理沙が死ぬときは~

宵の空を眺みながら
箒星は旅を始める
独り暗く明かりのない森を抜け出し

yoi no sora o nagami nagara
houki-boshi wa tabi o hajimeru
hitori kuraku akari no nai mori o nuke dashi

The starry broom begins its voyage
While gazing at the evening sky
Slipping out from the lonely, gloomy forest with no lights

一つひとつ数えながら
星は永い月日を辿る
遣る瀬無さに駆られながら、闇に震えて

hitotsu hitotsu kazoe nagara
hoshi wa nagai tsukihi o tadoru
yaru senasa ni karare nagara, yami ni furuete

While counting each of them one by one
The stars follow a long timespan of years
Trembling in the darkness as they succumb to their own misery

それでも生まれて大声上げた、輝きを抱いて
それでも生まれてここまで生きた
そして見上げた空は・・・

sore demo umarete oogoe ageta, kagayaki o idaite
sore demo umarete koko made ikita
soshite miageta sora wa…

But still I was born raising a loud voice, embracing the light;
But still I was born and lived up to this very moment
And then, the sky I looked up was…

借りた言葉返しながら
星は霧の雨を降らせる
朝の光染まる街に、手を振りながら

karita kotoba kaeshi nagara
hoshi wa kiri no ame o furaseru
asa no hikari somaru machi ni, te o furi nagara

While returning all the words I’ve borrowed around
The stars are being poured down by a foggy rain
And in the meanwhile I’m waving my hand towards the town dyed in morning light

寄り添いながら人は傷付け合い、そうして苦しむ
燃え尽きながら人は何が出来る?何かを遺せる?

yorisoi nagara hito wa kizu tsuke ai, sou shite kurushimu
moetsuki nagara hito wa nani ga dekiru? nanika o nokoseru?

People hurt each other as they get close, and then they suffer from it
What can someone who’s burning out do? Will something be left out of it?

何度も恋してここまで来れた、悲しみに焦がれて
それでも愛してここまで生きた
そして出逢えた空で

nandomo koi shite koko made kureta, kanashimi ni kogarete
sore demo aishite koko made ikita
soshite deaeta sora de

I’ve come this far loving countless times, scorched by sadness
But still I’ve lived up to this moment by loving
And then, under the sky we’ve met…

今宵もどこかで産声上げた、喜びに抱かれて
そうして誰かが瞬き消えた
誰かの腕の中で…

koyoi mo doko ka de ubugoe ageta, yorokobi ni idakarete
sou shite dareka ga matataki kieta
dareka no ude no naka de…

This evening too, the voice of a newborn is rising, as it’s being embraced with joy
And with it, the flickering light of someone has vanished
Inside the arms of someone else…

Notes:

– First note is a personal note. I wasn’t expecting much from this song when I first read its title only, but man I was wrong. It’s such a brilliant arrange and nice song I’m glad I got to know it (even lyrics-wise is beautiful)!
– The “foggy rain” on the fourth stanza is probably refering to Marisa, being her surname composed off the kanjis for “foggy” (霧, “kiri”) and “rain” (雨, “same”).
– I’ve used “it” more than once, because it felt strange to use whether “he” or “she” or such. “It” also applies to concept, so it shouldn’t be that wrong. But mind that, more than once, it’s refering to a person whose gender is unknown. That’s why I’ve decided to keep “it”.

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。
