indigo

Title: インディゴ (indigo)
Circle: 岸田教団 & THE明星ロケッツ
Arrange: 岸田 (Kishida) , ichigo
Vocal: ichigo
Album: hack/SLASH
Original Arrangement

indigo is a purplish-blue colour, for those who don’t know. couldn’t decide whether to choose a picture that fits with the title or the lyrics. The translation isn’t too literal this time, maybe a bit sloppy. sorry about that.

*満たない月: literally “the not waxing moon”
* 道連れ: i don’t think “companion” is literally meant here
*月見ルように想えたなら: i totally have no clue if i got this right
*君なんかって離れる理由を探すのに: lack of pronouns, so it could be either ” a reason for you to leave me” or “a reason to leave you/ to break up”


いのちの密度を測るように愛してた
寄り添えない角度で傷つくのに
水面に揺られて沈む満たない月が
ふたりを照らして
inochi no mitsudo wo hakaru you ni aishiteta
yorisoenai kakudo de kizutsuku no ni
minamo ni yurarete shizumu mitanai tsuki ga
futari wo terashite

i loved you enough to measure the weight of life
though i did not cling to my position, i got hurt
swaying on the water surface and sinking, the waning moon
shines on the both of us

遠くの星空届かない距離にまで
美しくもない饗に酔って道連れ
水面に揺られて沈む満たない月に
片思いしてよぼくのせいにして
tooku no hoshizora todokanai kyori ni made
utsukushiku mo nai kyou ni yotte michidzure
minamo ni yurarete shizumu mitanai tsuki ni
kataomoi shite yo boku no sei ni shite

not reaching far into the distance of this starry sky
a companion that intoxicates me on this distasteful banquet
swaying on the water surface and sinking, to the waning moon
my unrequited love, i am to blame

間違いばかり選びつづけている
泣きたい夜に
machigai bakari erabi tsudzukete iru
nakitai yoru ni

i only keep chosing what mistakes to make
at night when i want to cry

月見ルように想えたなら
答えなんていらないって言えたはずさ
手を離して落ちる夢は
君の指に染みついた切なく深い青
tsukimiru you ni omoetanara
kotae nante iranai tte ieta hazu sa
te wo hanashite ochiru yume wa
kimi no yubi ni shimitsuita setsunaku fukai ao

if only i could remember so that i can look at the moon
i should have just said i don’t need an answer
after letting go of your hand, the dream i fall into
ingrained into your finger,a deep, painful indigo

壊れたばかりの欠片で手を切る
眺めるばかりできっと痕になる
kowareta bakari no kakera de te wo kiru
nagameru bakari de kitto ato ni naru

the broken pieces only cut my fingers
just by looking at them, they’ll surely leave scars

君なんかって離れる理由を探すのに
また近づいていく、どうしたらいい?
kimi nanka tte hanareru riyuu wo sagasu no ni
mata chikadzuite iku, doushitara ii?

i’m searching for a reason for you to leave me and yet
we’re becoming closer again, what should i do?

月見ルように想えたなら
今も其処に居ただろうかって笑って
手を伸ばして落ちる夢は
君の指に染み付いた儚く深い青
tsukimiru you ni omoetanara
ima mo sono tokoro ni itadarou ka tte waratte
te wo nobashite ochiru yume wa
kimi no yubi ni shimitsuita hakanaku fukai ao

if i remembered it like watching the moon
why have i been at that place until now, i laugh
after letting go of your hand, the dream i fall into
ingrained into your finger, a deep, endless indigo
