Gunslinger Girl – Lui si chiama… ~Watashi no Taisetsu na Hito… Kare no Na wa…~

July 20, 2012

Lui si chiama… ~私の大切な人…彼の名は…~

Lui si chiama… ~Watashi no Taisetsu na Hito… Kare no Na wa…~

His Name Is… ~The One I Love… His Name Is…~

「ジョゼさんは何でも知っている」

“JOZE-san wa nandemo shitte iru”

“Giuse knows everything…”

「仕事をするにはたくさんのことを覚えなくてはいけない
良い仕事は全て単純な作業の堅実な積み重ね」

“shigoto o suru ni wa takusan no koto o oboenakute wa ikenai
yoi shigoto wa subete tanjun na sagyou no kenjitsu na tsumikasane”

“To do work, there are a number of things you must remember.
Every successful job is a result of the steady accumulation of simple tasks.”

嗚呼 ライフルスコープで見上げた青空に
ぼんやり輝く金星

aa… RAIFURU SUKOOPU de miageta aozora ni
bon’yari kagayaku kinsei [la Venere]

Ah… in the blue sky I looked at through the rifle scope
Venus faintly shone

「星を観るのは初めて」と小さな胸を高鳴らし
哀しい女神の物語 優しい声で聴いていた

“hoshi o miru no wa hajimete” to chiisa na mune o takanarashi
kanashii megami no monogatari yasashii koe de kiite ita

“This is the first time I’ve looked at the stars,” I said, my small heart pounding
I listened to the gentle voice telling the story of a sad goddess

嗚呼 天体望遠鏡で見上げた星空に
眩く煌く 狩人

aa… tentaibouenkyou [telescopio] de miageta hoshizora ni
mabayuku kirameku karyuudo [Orion]

Ah… in the starry sky I looked at through the telescope
Orion glittered dazzlingly

ルルル ジョゼさんにもらった大切な日記張
忘れやすい日々の『小さな幸せ』を集めてろう

RURURU~ JOZE-san ni moratta taisetsu na nikkichou
wasureyasui hibi no “chiisa na shiawase” o atsumete tsudzurou…

Lululu~ In the precious diary that Giuse gave me
I’ll record the “small happinesses” of days I might have easily forgotten

「ある冬の日、エルザは愛を貫いて逝った
エルザの愛はきっと私とは違う
でも私は、彼女の生き方を否定出来なかった」

“aru fuyu no hi, ERUSA wa ai o tsuranuite itta.
ERUSA no ai wa kitto watashi to chigau.
demo watashi wa, kanojo no ikikata o hitei dekinakatta…”

“That winter day, Elsa pierced her love and died.
Elsa’s love is different from mine.
But I couldn’t condemn her way of life…”

教えて下さい ジョゼさん
愛して下さい ジョゼさん

oshiete kudasai JOZE-san… JOZE-san… JOZE-san…
aishite kudasai JOZE-san… JOZE-san… JOZE-san…

Teach me please, Giuse… Giuse… Giuse…
Love me please, Giuse… Giuse… Giuse…

「体が機械の女の子って普通ですか?」

“karada ga kikai no onna no ko tte futsuu desu ka?”

“Is a girl with a machine for a body normal?”

凄い力持ちで 素手で人を殺せるんです
赤い血は出るけれど すぐに痛みなんて消えちゃうんです
義体の私が ジョゼさんのお役に立つには 普通の
嗚呼 普通の女の子じゃ駄目なんですよ

sugoi chikara mochi de sude de hito o koroseru n’desu
akai chi wa deru keredo sugu ni itami nante kiechau n’desu
gitai no watashi ga JOZE-san no o-yaku ni tatsu ni wa futsuu no
— aa… futsuu no onna no ko ja dame na n’desu yo…

With my amazing strength, I can kill people with my bare hands
Although I bleed red blood, the pain soon disappears
The things I, who am a cyborg, can do to help Giuse can’t…
— ah… can’t be done by a normal girl…

ねぇジョゼさん 私は貴方の可愛い妹になれますか?
どんなに想っても
ねぇじょゼさん 誰かの代わりでも貴方の特別になれますか?
どんなに願っても

nee JOZE-san watashi wa anata no kawaii imouto ni naremasu ka?
— donna ni omotte mo…
nee JOZE-san dareka no kawari de mo anata no tokubetsu ni naremasu ka?
— donna ni negatte mo…

Hey, Giuse, can I become your cute younger sister?
— However much I think that…
Hey, Giuse, can I become more precious to you than anyone else?
— However much I wish for that…

ララ 私は知ってるんです 頭を撫でてくれる手の温もりを
ララ 私は待ってるんです 優しく微笑みかけてくれる眼差しを

RARA watashi wa shitte’ru n’desu atama o nadete kureru te no nukumori o
RARA watashi wa matte’ru n’desu yasashiku hohoemi kakete kureru manazashi o

Lala, I know the warmth of the hand patting my head
Lala, I’m waiting for his gently smiling gaze

嗚呼 愛って何ですか?
嗚呼 愛って何ですか?

aa… ai tte nan desu ka?
aa… ai tte nan desu ka?

Ah… what is love?
Ah… what is love?

揺らめく『焔』は色を変えながら 最期に向かって 嗚呼 燃え続ける

yurameku “honoo” wa iro o kaenagara saigo ni mukatte aa… moetsudzukeru…

As the flickering “flame” changes color, until the end, ah… it will keep burning…

Translator’s Notes:

The words in square brackets are what is sung where it differs from what is written in the lyrics booklet.
