花が薫る優雅な夜
騒がしい余興には
紙一重の血生臭さが
漂い続けて

hana ga kaoru yuuga na yoru
sawagashii yokyou ni wa
kamihitoe no chinamagusasa ga
tadayoi tsudukete

This night is elegant and fragrant with flowers.
The paper-thin stench of blood
continues to waft around
the boisterous slideshow.

愚かさと引き換えに得る
ものは何もないから
幻想(ゆめ)に届かぬことだけただ
教えてあげよう

orokasa to hikikae ni eru
mono wa nani mo nai kara
yume ni todokanu koto dake tada
oshiete ageyou

There’s nothing that you’ll gain
in exchange for foolishness.
You’ll just remain unable to reach dreams.
Let me teach you…

闇を彩る美しさ
これが魔女の光
妖しく照らして

yami o irodoru utsukushisa
kore ga majo no hikari
ayashiku terashite

Beauty colours the darkness—
it is the magus light
shining mysteriously.

眩む視界から余韻が
巡るその前には
悪夢に堕ちるだろう

kuramu shikai kara yoin ga
meguru sono mae ni wa
akumu ni ochiru darou

Perhaps you’ll fall into a nightmare
before the halo from your dazzled vision
comes back.

今宵は仮面携え
そう 夜の化身となろう

koyoi wa kamen tazusae
sou yoru no keshin to narou

Tonight, carry your mask in hand.
Yes—let’s become avatars of the night.

明けてゆく空を見る前
事(こと)は終りを告げて
何も無かったかの様にまた
時は過ぎるだろう

akete yuku sora o miru mae
koto wa owari o tsugete
nani mo nakatta ka no you ni mata
toki wa sugiru darou

Before you see the dawning sky
things announce their end.
Perhaps time will pass by again
as if nothing had happened

それは妖の手でな
人の為せる流儀か
決して後を濁すことなく
幕を引くから

sore wa ayakashi no te de naku
hito no naseru ryuugi ka
kesshite ato o nigosu koto naku
maku o hiku kara

Is that the style of humans
rather than a youkai’s means?
After all, they always draw the curtain
without leaving a bad impression behind.

悔やむ時さえ与えずに
光は帯となる
全てを包んで

kuyamu toki sae ataezu ni
hikari wa obi to naru
subete o tsutsunde

Without even giving time to mourn,
the light becomes an obi
and wraps around everything.

刺さる輝きが立ち去れば
映るその景色に
影だけが残るだろう

sasaru kagayaki ga tachisareba
utsuru sono keshiki ni
kage dake ga nokoru darou

When the light that pierces in departs
perhaps only shadows will remain
in the reflected landscape.

闇を彩る美しさ
これが魔女の光
妖しく照らして

yami o irodoru utsukushisa
kore ga majo no hikari
ayashiku terashite

Beauty colours the darkness—
it is the magus light
shining mysteriously.

夜が明けてしまえばこの
悪夢さえ忘れて
元に戻るのだろう

yoru ga akete shimaeba kono
akumu sae wasurete
moto ni modoru no darou

When night comes to an end
maybe you’ll forget even this nightmare
and things will return to how they were.

今宵は恐怖と踊れ
ああ 全て闇の中へ

koyoi wa kyoufu to odore
aa subete yami no naka e

Tonight, dance with fear!
Ah, everything descends into darkness.

My life has started to break away. (1)

I forget time

“You must be insane to do such a thing.”
I want to be called, always.
I go mad with insanity.

ずっと前から知っていた
初めてなのに懐かしい場所

I knew it all along.
It was my first time visiting, yet that place was so nostalgic.

雲割れ光が映し出す幻影(まぼろし)

kumo ware hikari ga utsushi dasu maboroshi

The clouds part and the light reveals an illusion.

譽(ほまれ)刻み込んで朽ち掛けたこの庭
瞬きの間に消えた影に
心奪われて

homare kizami konde kuchi kaketa kono niwa

Glory is etched into this garden, forgotten with time.
My heart was stolen away by a shadow
that vanished in an instant.

古い寫真の片隅に
そっと佇(たたず)む笑わない人

furui shashin no katasumi ni

In the corner of an old photograph
a stern figure stood silently.

衝羽根(つくばね)の実抱く白い指も枯れて

tsukubane no mi daku shiroi yubi mo karete

White fingers, embracing the fruit of the tsukubane bush, wither away as well.

屆かないあなたに生まれて散った戀
燃える山の端 風の葉音
どこにもいなくて

todokanai anata ni umarete chitta koi
moeru yama no ha kaze no haoto

My unrequited love for you, who I could not reach, was born and then died.
The edge of the burning mountain and the sounds of rustling leaves
are nowhere to be found—

碧澄(あおすみ)

Blue and clear.

(非公式の)英訳だけです。申し訳ありません。

The mansion is turning, but it isn’t literally turning. It’s likely used in the same way as ‘the world turns’ (i.e. time passes). You can interpret it as ‘Time Passes in the Mansion.’


A new dawn has arrived. Perhaps it is the dawn of hope.
If I had something to hope for… I’d hope for it to be fine weather for laundry.

“Oh my, I’m so busy!”
I mutter those words like a song.
I work my way through my usual exhausting work.

Some things are important to spend your days well. They are:

Elegance,
Modesty
and perhaps just a little bitterness. (1)

It’s all an attitude:
One that makes my workload smaller.

Because everything that surrounds me is irrational,
Things are pretty hard.

Even so, the mansion turns.

In the face of a sudden summons,
I’m taken aback… That happens sometimes, too.

In the library, in my master’s room…
Is that an unwanted guest there, or possibly somewhere else?

As the dogs and cats wish,
I’m made to show off
but I push my way through my usual hard work.

Some things are important to spend your days well. They are:

Elegance,
Modesty
and perhaps just a little bitterness.

These are all the etiquette
of one who manages countless tasks alone.

Though the guests may be uninvited, I do not forget my hospitality.
Things are so hard, though…

Even so, the mansion dances.

I’ll become even more perfect
and I’ll become even more refined!

I shall serve my time!

Elegance,
Modesty
and perhaps just a little bitterness.

I offer these words up to my master:
“Are you in good spirits?”

Elegance,
Modesty
and perhaps just a little bitterness.

The joy of work
accompanies my daily duties.

I finished everything. I’ve done well again today.
Things are so hard, though…

Even so, the mansion turns.


(1) 優美 (yuubi) and 謙遜 (kenson) in the first two lines of the chorus are sung as ‘Elegance’ and ‘Modesty’, their respective English translations. 諧謔 (kaigyaku – Joke/banter) is sung as ‘Bitterness.’

見えないのは見せてないから
閉ざされた穏やかさ

mienai no wa misetenai kara
tozasareta odayakasa

My sealed-away calmness can’t be seen
because I’m not showing you it.

消えないのは消せてないから
隠された温かさが

kienai no wa kesetenai kara
kakusareta atatakasa ga

My concealed warmth won’t disappear
because I’m not making it disappear.

構われなくたって そっと ずっと 彷徨って
生きてきた 生きていく 恋の歌

kamawarenaku tatte sotto zutto samayotte
ikite kita ikite iku koi no uta

Hoping to not be meddled with, I secretly wander, always.
This love song came to life and continues to live.

恥じらった夢が きっと ちょっと くすぐって
空の下 風の中 舞い上がる

hajiratta yume ga kitto chotto kusugutte
sora no shita kaze no naka mai agaru

The dreams I was embarrassed of will surely amuse you a little.
Beneath the sky, in the wind, I soar.

瞼を抉じ開けたら まだ眩しくて
独りよがりのままの瞳
全てを受け止めても 受け入れられず
壊れやすさを秘めたまま

mabuta o koji aketara mada mabushikute
hitoriyogari no mama no hitomi
subete o uketometemo ukeirerarezu
koware yasusa o himeta mama

When I wrenched my eyes open, it was still so bright.
My eyes remained complacent.
Though I accept everything, I’m not accepted.
I still conceal my fragility.

許されたいから そっと ずっと 彷徨って
笑顔とか 涙とか 恋の歌

yurusaretai kara sotto zutto samayotte
egao toka namida toka koi no uta

I want to be forgiven, so I secretly wander, always.
This song is about things like smiles, tears, and love.

間違った夢が きっと ちょっと くすぐって
雲の下 雨の中 揺れていた

machigatta yume ga kitto chotto kusugutte
kumo no shita ame no naka yurete ita

My mistaken dream will surely amuse you a little.
Beneath the clouds, in the rain, I was wavering.

光を差し込まないで まだ苦しくて
深く意識の奥で 一人
誰にも触れないから 触れさせないの
柔らかな危うさのまま

hikari o sashikomanaide mada kurushikute
fukaku ishiki no oku de hitori
dare ni mo furenai kara furesasenai no
yawaraka na ayausa no mama

Don’t shine a light in—it’s still painful.
I am alone, deep in my consciousness.
I won’t touch anyone else, so I won’t let them touch me.
I remain in meek danger.

剥されて 解かれて 疎まれた あの日々を
閉じ込めて 眠らせた この胸は

hagasarete hodokarete utomareta ano hibi o
tojikomete nemuraseta kono mune wa

I sealed away those days, in which I was flayed, undone, and shunned.
I put my heart to sleep.

Just a note: the parts in brackets sometimes echo what comes before, but I think they should be read separately from the non-bracketed text. The inconsistent nature of this made it hard to pick a single translation of 揃えて (soroete), so it changes each time it’s used.


穏やかに ゆっくりと 現れる
分かれ路 君は 何処に居るの

odayaka ni yukkuri to arawareru
wakaremichi kimi wa doko ni iru no

Calmly, slowly, it appears…
I am at a fork in the road. Where are you?

疲れ果て 少しだけ 振り返る
砕けた石 迷える跡を辿る

tsukare hate sukoshi dake furikaeru
kudaketa ishi mayoeru ato o tadoru

I’m tired. I look back, just a little.
I follow crumbled stones, marks from where I went astray.

崩れてく 突然
君へ つながる 路が
残された 風と共に 今駆け抜ける

kuzureteku totsuzen

The path leading me to you
suddenly crumbles away.
I was left behind. Now I race on, together with the wind.

地平線 美しく 霞みゆく
白い景色 君はそこに居るの

The horizon is beautiful. It grows hazy.
Are you there in that white landscape?

旅人は 海を背に 歌い出す
誰も いつか ここへ辿り着くと

tabibito wa umi o se ni utai dasu

The traveller turns from the sea and begins to sing,
Proclaiming that everyone will someday return here.

消えてゆく 必ず

Days in which I stare at you
will fade away without fail.
Left behind, I will take time in my hands and advance.

I can’t forget. Now, let’s go—
I will continue flying until that day comes.

「いつか必ず私を迎えに来て欲しい」
「誓おう この命に換えても」

“itsuka kanarazu watashi wo mukae ni kite hoshii”
“chikaou kono inochi ni kaetemo”

“I want you to come for me someday…”
“I swear it! Even if I forfeit my life in exchange.”

弱く儚い約束 直向きな命
人の子の運命見つめていよう
決して結ばれることは無いとしても
ただ祈り続けていたい

yowaku hakanai yakusoku hitamuki na inochi
hito no ko no sadame mitsumete iyou
keshite musubareru koto wa nai to shitemo

A weak, fleeting promise. A single-minded life.
I shall stare at the children’s fates.
Even if we will never be linked,
I want to keep praying.

金と銀で作られた偽りの樹にも
春来たりなば 真珠の花が

When spring arrives, pearl flowers will bloom
even upon a false tree made of gold and silver.
O ark of oaths! Until you reach the moon,
Race through space for millennia and millennia.

いつか此処まで迎えに来てくれたのなら
その時は伝えたいことがあるの
いつか誓いを果たして この身が朽ちても
振り返る者もなく

If you will come to receive me someday,
There’s something I want to say then.
Though my body may rot when my oath is fulfilled,
There is not a soul who will look back.

“人の作りし星が 夜空で手をつなぎ
やがて光の綱が 地上を包み込む
あらゆる境界を するりとくぐり抜け
誰しもの想いが 実を結んでゆく”

“hito no tsukuri-boshi ga yozora de te wo tsunagi
yagate hikari no tsuna ga chijou wo tsutsumi komu

dareshimo no omoi ga mi wo musunde yuku”

 “Manmade stars link hands in the night sky.
   Eventually, the rope of light will envelop the surface.
   Slipping through all boundaries,
   Everyone’s wishes will bear fruit.”

僅か百年の仲で 消え行く命 慈しむことも嘆くことも
それは百年の過客 残された言葉 ただ只管に想う

wazuka hyakunen no naka de kie yuku inochi itsukushimu koto mo nageku koto mo
sore wa hyakunen no kakaku nokosareta kotoba tada hitasura ni omou

Lives fade away after a mere century. Loving… grieving…
They are the words left behind by the century travellers. I just feel for them earnestly.

“今や機械の腕が 人々を支えている
たとえ言葉が消え 文字さえも無くなり
時を経てもなお  愛がそこに在るなら

“ima ya kikai no ude ga hitobito wo sasaete iru
tatoe kotoba ga kie moji sae mo naku nari
toki wo hetemo nao ai ga soko ni aru nara

“Now, mechanical arms support humans.
  If language fades away and even letters vanish,
  Though time may pass, love will still remain there. If so…

私は 生きよう”

watashi wa ikiyou”

  …I will live.”

誓おう この声を月に届けよう
千代に花開く想い 高らかに
狂おしく満月 片時も離れずに
羽衣は永久の夢

chikaou kono koe wo tsuki ni todokeyou
chiyo ni hana hiraku omoi takaraka ni
kuruoshiku mangetsu katatoki mo hanarezu ni
hagoromo wa towa no yume

I shall swear an oath! My voice will reach the moon!
My feelings blossom over the ages, reaching up high.
Without parting from the maddening full moon for a moment,
The angel’s raiment is an eternal dream…

Decorations made by linking flower petals together
Won’t stay the same forever
So, at the very least, I only want to leave behind
Things that can’t be put into words, forever…

気だるい時間と
暮らしの頭痛で
9か10時間目
ストローもくたびれてる
風がゆらゆら
前髪と遊んで
一人身のボタンで

The time passes by languidly
And I feel life’s headaches.
It’s been about 9 or 10 hours.
Even my straw is worn out.
The wind gently blows by,
Playing with my fringe.
We can’t understand the future
Using just a single button.

Decorations made by linking flowers together
Won’t stay the same forever

ダメになるまで

Until I’m no longer of any use,
I will perform my duties.
Whether it’s sunny or rainy,
Colours will bloom in the greenhouse.
10 or 12—
Let’s stop when the clock points there
Because it’s much, much sadder
To waste time.

kienai mono kiete iku mono zenbu
yaki tsukete wa peeji wo fuyashite iku
itsumo watashi ga oite ikareru toki wa
watashi ga sono senaka wo mamoru kara

I’m always going to be left behind by others
Because I can’t remain beautiful.
And whenever I’m left behind,
They’ll reach out a hand
And walk in front of me.
Things that can and can’t fade away
Will be burned into my memory, increasing the pages.
Whenever I’m left behind,
I’ll protect them from behind, for sure!

いつか私が老いて枯れる時は
その手で摘み取って

itsuka watashi ga oite kareru toki wa
sono te de tsukami totte

Someday, I will grow old and wither away. When that time comes…
Pick me from the ground, with those hands.

英訳だけです。申し訳ありません。

My first Liz Triangle album was reunion, and in the years since that album came out, I haven’t had the chance to go back and listen to their back catalogue (secretly hoping they release a sort of ‘complete collection’ at C92…) Anyway, this song is moving and I really like it.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

In a silent forest, clad in dark mist,
I look up at the invisible moon and hum to myself.

The lost child, once again, followed that song
Their figure was projected upon the hazy full moon.

The traces of my loneliness and tears grew so strong they would not vanish.
I believed I could live, even if I was alone. My heart was hollow.

I forgot how valuable it is to talk to others
And accept the kindness of strangers.
Though I sang, though I called out,
Nobody paid any attention to my voice.

The shivering bird sang a lullaby toward the underworld
So they could sleep deeply, once more; so they could die without going astray.

Lending an ear to the song, the lost child stood still.
They seemed anxious, but they began to smile, just a little.

I had already given up,
Given up on understanding others through song.

I want to tell you about my sadness
And about the weight of being burdened with sorrow
So I will continue to sing, continue to cry.
But nobody can hear. I can’t tell anyone about anything.

Even knowing that nobody will hear me,
I continue to sing a song toward the underworld.
Though I’ve given up on communicating with others,
I will sing. My song carries my words and my feelings…

I want to tell you about what lies within my sealed-off heart.
I want to sing with you as we walk, shoulder-to-shoulder
But I told myself it was over, that it was an impossible dream.
I covered my mouth with both hands.

A child grabbed my hands and unsealed my mouth
And they showed me their innocent smile.
They began to sing the same song
And we looked up at the same sky.

Snow Sound

FELT-002Snow Sound

Vocals: Maika (舞歌)
Lyrics: NAGI☆

Event: C79

Requested by: Marisa~Nya

Winter. Loneliness. Sorrow.

This is an early FELT original, but I quite enjoy it – it has a very refreshing feel to it, even though the lyrics are sad. You can kind of see the beginnings of FELT’s traditional lyric style here: You’re missing -> I’m sad -> I’m going to look for you!

If the person the speaker loves is actually dead, though, the ending becomes kind of morbid.

ふと立ち止まった瞬間 ふわり雪が落ちてきて
手にとることを許さず 壊れていくだけ

futo tachidomatta shunkan fuwari yuki ga ochite kite
te ni toru koto wo yurusazu kowarete iku dake

The moment I stood still, snow began to lightly fall.
I am not allowed to hold it – it just breaks apart.

忘れたふりをして 逃げ道を探して 心で泣いているの

wasureta furi wo shite nigemichi wo sagashite kokoro de naite iru no

Pretending I had forgotten you, I search for a way out. I am crying inside my heart.

その笑顔の意味を わかる時がきたら
もうこれ以上振り向かないで
雪化粧についた足跡が消える頃に 零れた涙

sono egao no imi wo wakaru toki ga kitara
mou kore ijou furimukanaide
yukigeshou ni tsuita ashiato ga kieru koro ni koboreta namida

When I understand what your smile meant,
I won’t look back again.
When the footprints on the snow disappear, so too will the tears I have shed.

朝をまつ遠い空に そっと面影を見せた
失うことを恐れて 触れられはしない

asa wo matsu tooi sora ni sotto omokage wo miseta
ushinau koto wo osorete furerare wa shinai

I quietly showed myself beneath a sky still awaiting dawn.
Afraid of loss, I won’t let myself be touched.

過去に残してきた 悔しさを背負って 立ち止まっているの

kako ni nokoshite kita kuyashisa wo seotte tachidomatte iru no

Bearing regrets I left behind in the past, I stand still.

心の中はずっと 春を向かえられず
孤独な時間だけが永遠に
あの時消えていった足跡を掘り返してる
進まない 時の中で

kokoro no naka wa zutto haru wo mukaerarezu
kodoku na jikan dake ga eien ni
ano toki kiete itta ashiato wo horikaeshiteru
susumanai toki no naka de

I unable to face spring inside my heart,
I spend time in silence, forever.
I dig up those footprints, which once vanished,
And time stands still.

心についた傷の 治し方もわからず
何もしないのは 自分への戒め
壁に背を向けて 俯いていても
変われない さあカギをあけて

kokoro ni tsuita kizu no naoshikata mo wakarazu
nani mo shinai no wa jibun e no imashime
kabe ni se wo mukete utsumuite ite mo
kawarenai saa kagi wo akete

Without knowing how to heal the wounds in my heart.
I do nothing, aiming to punish myself.
Though I face my back to the wall and look downwards,
I cannot change. Come, turn the key!

その笑顔の意味を わかる時がきたら
もうこれ以上振り向かないで
記憶に残した足跡を辿っていくよ
春を届けに

sono egao no imi wo wakaru toki ga kitara
Mou kore ijou furimukanaide
kioku ni nokoshita ashiato wo tadotte iku yo
haru wo todoke ni

When I understand what your smile meant,
I won’t look back again.
I’m going to follow those footprints, left behind in my memories.
I’m going to deliver spring.
