東方永夜抄 ~ Imperishable Night
竹取飛翔 ~ Lunatic Princess , Flight of the Bamboo Cutter ~ Lunatic Princess, Kaguya Houraisan’s Theme

Here is the Kishida song i promised. Nothing much to say as always, except that uni is stressing me like hell and ugh, so much work in so little time  -.-
Might take me a while to answer comments or finish requests, sorry about that!

*引き寄せられる: this literally means “to be drawn to sth”, which is probably referring to the water tide/ the crashing waves but “float” (in the water) is shorter so i went with that
*夜光虫: is “yakouchuu”, meaning ~’night light bug’ and officially called noctiluca scintillans (also known as sea sparkle). even though they’re not really bugs, rather some kind of jellyfish that glow in the dark. for a more scientific explanation, please try wikipedia, i’m no expert :D this also means that they are not able to “fly”, but rather drift in the sea


求める先が たとえ暗闇だとしても
明日さえいらない 君がいてくれるなら
motomeru saki ga tatoe kurayami da to shite mo
ashita sae iranai kimi ga ite kureru nara

even if what i’m longing for is complete darkness
i don’t need a tomorrow as long as you’re here with me

夢と呼ぶには 儚いひとしずくだけれど
居場所などいらない 君がいてくれるなら

yume to yobu ni wa hakanai hitoshizuku dakeredo
ibasho nado iranai kimi ga ite kureru nara

if i were to name my dreams, they’re but fleeting droplets
i don’t need a place to belong as long as you’re here with me

転がり堕ちるせめてこの手を
放さないでと願うことも
赦されぬならせめてこの身を
砕かせないで 君の永遠で
korogari ochiru semete kono te wo
hanasanaide to negau koto mo
yurusarenu nara semete kono mi wo
kudakasenaide kimi no towa de

dropping down and falling, at least
please don’t let go of my hand
and if that’s unforgivable, then at least
please don’t let my body break within your eternity

戯れの仕草で 引き寄せられる夜光虫
永遠が欲しいと飛んで
戯れの予感で 引き寄せられる夜光虫
美しき夜空に飛んで
tawamure no shigusa de hikiyoserareru yakouchuu
eien ga hoshii to tonde
tawamure no yokan de hikiyoserareru yakouchuu
utsukushiki yozora ni tonde

with a funny gesture, the noctiluca float up and down
wishing for eternity as they fly
with a funny notion the noctiluca float up and down
drifting into the beautiful night sky

抑圧の先 それが解放だとしても
自由などいらない 君がいてくれるから
yokuatsu no saki sore ga kaihou da to shite mo
jiyuu nado iranai kimi ga ite kurerukara

if the end of oppression means i’ll be liberated
i don’t need freedom as long as you’re here with me

同じ時間を数える日々を
歪んで見てるまぶたの向こう
赦されるならどうかこの身が
朽ち果てるまで ずっと
onaji jikan wo kazoeru hibi wo
yugande miteru mabuta no mukou
yurusareru nara dou ka kono mi ga
kuchihateru made zutto

behind my eyelids, i twistedly see
the days when i counted the same hours over and over
if i can be forgiven then please
stay with me until this body decays

戯れの仕草で 引き寄せられる夜光虫
永遠が欲しいと飛んで
戯れの予感で 引き寄せられる夜光虫
美しき夜空に飛んで
tawamure no shigusa de hikiyoserareru yakouchuu
eien ga hoshii to tonde
tawamure no yokan de hikiyoserareru yakouchuu
utsukushiki yozora ni tonde

with a funny gesture, the noctiluca float up and down
wishing for eternity as they fly
with a funny notion the noctiluca float up and down
drifting into the beautiful night sky

また 夜がはじまる
千年 繰り返し
mata yoru ga hajimaru
sennen kurikaeshi

another night begins
and a thousand years repeat

誓う貴女に 募る想い 捧ぐ貴女に
chikau anata ni tsunoru omoi sasagu anata ni

to you i vow, to you, i give these treasured feelings

Sooo this is the first time i translated a german song into english, i hope i didn’t mess it up completely … I’m open for complaints from fellow german translators! :)
If the composer want this to be taken down, i will do so of course.

* Träume sehen mein Herz in der Einsamkeit: slighty ambiguous word order, but i think i got this right


Träume sehen mein Herz in der Einsamkeit
Wo bist du hin? Ich suche nur nach einer Spur

my heart is dreaming in this loneliness
where did you go? I’m only looking for a trace

Bücher zeigen das Bild dieses Wunderlands
Was ist geschehn? Ich sehne mich nach deinem Licht

books show me the picture of this wonderland
what happened? I’m longing for your light

Wohin soll ich gehn?
Und was wünsch ich mir?
Wo ist der Weg hin, hin zu dir?
Nur der eine Pfad ohne Wiederkehr
Doch ich suche noch weiter, für dich

where should i go?
what am i yearning for?
where is the trail that will lead me to you?
a path with no return is all there is
but i keep searching, for your sake

Tage, Wochen und Jahre gehn mit der Zeit
War es denn das, hast du das so immer gewollt?

Days, weeks and years elapse
is that it? Is that what you always wanted?

Lächle, doch bricht mein Herz an der Einsamkeit
Ich wollt es auch, doch war dieser Weg doch nur dein

smiling, and yet this loneliness breaks down my heart
i wanted it too, but this path was yours alone

Was soll ich jetzt tun?
Wonach suche ich?
Denn kein Buch dieser Welt führt zurück zu dir
Und ich frage mich, siehst dus’ auch wie ich?
Ich sing mein Lied nur für dich…

what should i do now?
what am i searching for?
in this world there is no book that could ever lead me back to you
and i ask myself,  ‘do you think the same?’
i’m singing my song for you only

Ich schau auf zu dir
Suchst du auch nach mir?
Ich warte für alle Zeit

i look up to you
are you looking for me too?
i’ll wait for all eternity
