Rose of Versailles – Bara wa Utsukushiku Chiru

September 2, 2014

Bara wa Utsukushiku Chiru – 薔薇は美しく散る – The Rose Perishes Beautifully

草むらに 名も知れず
咲いている 花ならば
ただ風を 受けながら
そよいでいれば いいけれど

kusamura ni na mo shirezu
saite iru hana naraba
tada kaze o ukenagara
soyoide ireba ii keredo

If I were just a nameless flower
Blooming in a field
Then I could simply
Let myself blow in the wind

私はバラのさだめに生まれた
華やかに激しく生きろと生まれた
バラはバラは 気高く咲いて
バラはバラは 美しく散る

watashi wa BARA no sadame ni umareta
hanayaka ni hageshiku ikiro to umareta
BARA wa BARA wa kedakaku saite
BARA wa BARA wa utsukushiku chiru

But I was born to the destiny of the rose
Born to a brilliant and tempestuous life
The rose, the rose blooms nobly
The rose, the rose perishes beautifully

どの星が めぐる時
散ってゆく 私だろう
平凡な 人生は
かなえられない身だけれど

dono hoshi ga meguru toki
chitte yuku watashi darou
heibon na jinsei wa
kanaerarenai mi dakeredo

I wonder beneath which star
I am destined to perish
I have not been granted
An ordinary life

私はバラの 命をさずかり
情熱を燃やして生きてくいつでも
バラはバラは 気高く咲いて
バラはバラは 美しく散る

watashi wa BARA no inochi o sazukari
jounetsu o moyashite ikite’ku itsudemo
BARA wa BARA wa kedakaku saite
BARA wa BARA wa utsukushiku chiru

But I have been entrusted with the destiny of the rose
To always live my life aflame with passion
The rose, the rose blooms nobly
The rose, the rose perishes beautifully

私はバラの 命をさずかり
情熱を燃やして生きてくいつでも
バラはバラは 気高く咲いて
バラはバラは 美しく散る

watashi wa BARA no inochi o sazukari
jounetsu o moyashite ikite’ku itsudemo
BARA wa BARA wa kedakaku saite
BARA wa BARA wa utsukushiku chiru

I have been entrusted with the destiny of the rose
To always live my life aflame with passion
The rose, the rose blooms nobly
The rose, the rose perishes beautifully

「ジュテーム、オスカル!」

“Je t’aime, Oscar!”

“I love you, Oscar!”
