Final Fantasy Type-0 – UTAKATA

April 10, 2018

UTAKATA – Transience

願いは永遠 悟りて
幾年 まだ届かず

negai wa towa satorite
ikutose mada todokazu

This wish is eternally enlightened
Yet after countless years, it has not yet been delivered

荒ぶる炎 騒ぎて
止められぬ鼓動 焦がして

araburu honoo sawagite
tomerarenu kodou kogashite

The wild flames rage
Burning this unstoppable pulse

踊るように舞い落ちる 桜雪よ
抗うように 紡ぐ声 駆け上らん

odoru you ni maiochiru sakura yuki yo
aragau you ni tsumugu koe kakenoboran

The snow of cherry blossom petals falls as if dancing
The voices that are spun as if in defiance do not climb

何度も繰り返し 燃え上がりし憂いに
戦い祈りしは 泡沫

nando mo kurikaeshi moeagarishi urei ni
tatakai inori shi wa utakata

This burning anguish repeats over and over
To fight against it, to pray is only transient

見果てぬ宙 十六夜
歴史の風 誘う

mihatenu sora izayoi
rekishi no kaze izanau

The unfinished sky, the gibbous moon
Invite the wind of history

神の意志さえ欺いて
手を伸ばした
微睡むような 懐かしき
その姿

kami no ishi sae azamuite
te o nobashita
madoromu you na natsukashiki
sono sugata

Deceiving even the will of God,
I reached out my hand
Toward that fondly remembered figure
That seemed to be drowsing

儚き魂が 古の記憶が
無常に甦る
許されんと知りながら 身体が求める
誓いの 灯火が ひとひら

hakanaki tamashii ga inishie no kioku ga
mujou ni yomigaeru
yurusaren to shirinagara karada ga motomeru
chikai no tomoshibi ga hitohira

Fleeting souls, memories of the ancient past
Revive in transience
Knowing it will never be forgiven, this body
Seeks out the light of just one vow

奏でる愛言葉
委ねる君の側
眠り続けていたい

kanaderu aikotoba
yudaneru kimi no soba
nemuritsudzukete itai

Playing words of love like a song
Devoting myself to you
I just want to keep on sleeping by your side

いつまでもこの時間が
続くようにと願った
輪廻に導かれ

itsumademo kono jikan ga
tsudzuku you ni to negatta
rinne ni michibikare

I only wished that this time
Would continue forever
I am beckoned by samsara

儚き魂が 古の記憶が
無常に甦る
何度も繰り返し 燃え上がりし憂いに
戦い祈りしは 泡沫

hakanaki tamashii ga inishie no kioku ga
mujou ni yomigaeru
nando mo kurikaeshi moeagarishi urei ni
tatakai inori shi wa utakata

Fleeting souls, memories of the ancient past
Revive in transience
This burning anguish repeats over and over
To fight against it, to pray is only transient

(Original lyrics by Chris Ito)
