the girl with kaleidoscope eyes [userpic]
rough, early translation of a piece of 蜉蝣-かげろう-
by the girl with kaleidoscope eyes (il_pleut)

current mood: accomplished

For some reason I felt like questing around for what I could find of the lyrics to the new single, and here's what I've got with a quick and dirty translation:



The bonfire of a dream that's burning out
The dregs of a sparkling life on the waves
The swaying face of some crazy person
Like being spun upward, like a dance to scatter
The dream dances with you

The blemished, pale pink of a midsummer night's dream
How I yearn for the may fly who takes flight
If you were to feel, dreaming a dream within a dream, within a dream
Flooded with joy forever, forever

I make no promises about accuracy, since I can't be sure the characters are all proper and that the person who transcribed them (some lovely soul from here, from where I shamelessly stole the Japanese) heard right. Also I'm not that great a translator, so. 8D But at least no one can complain that I didn't bother first.

It seems interesting, and I certainly like it quite a lot. Can't wait to get my copy in two weeks and puzzle the real lyrics out properly. o.o!!

The lyrics remind me of dress, and cosmos. I love how Sakurai's world is a very tight one. I think one time he said something that he had a story to tell as a lyricist for B-T, and these lyrics certainly seem to support that idea. Thank you...

Thank you. :)
The lyrics match the whirling carousel of the song very well. It is poetic and dreamy, two things I consider part of a good sign for the album to come.
