[Translation] 人間と妖怪と機械の僕 || 暁RecordsⅹLiz Triangle

«人間と妖怪と機械の僕»
ningen to youkai to kikai no boku
The human, the youkai and I, the machine

original: 芥川龍之介の河童 ~ Candid Friend
arrangement: kaztora/ねこ☆まんじゅう
lyrics: azuki
vocals: lily-an
album: First Memory/Next Memory
circle: 暁RecordsⅹLiz Triangle


The machine mourns after the death of the human it loved. Being immortal as a machine and all, it can’t follow its beloved one to the afterworld. The first half of the song is told by the youkai, which was the human originally, the second half by the machine. In the end, the machine shuts itself down until the day the human is reborn. Or something.


君が歌った唄 少し音が外れていたけれど
君が好きだった唄 僕は忘れはしない

kimi ga utatta uta sukoshi oto ga hazurete ita keredo
kimi ga suki datta uta boku wa wasure wa shinai

You didn’t quite hit the notes in the song you used to sing,
but I will never forget the song you used to love.

「きっと大丈夫だよ」 そんな言葉が聞きたい訳じゃない
「きっと」の言葉なんて 僕が「絶対」にしてあげる

“kitto daijoubu da yo” sonna kotoba ga kikitai wake ja nai
“kitto” no kotoba nante boku ga “zettai” ni shite ageru

“Surely it’ll be fine!” – It’s not that I don’t want to hear those words,
but I will change your “surely” into an “absolutely”.

こんな世界ですらも一人じゃない
届かない心で良い 君が好きだから

konna sekai de sura mo hitori ja nai
todokanai kokoro de ii kimi ga suki da kara

I’m not alone, even in this world.
I’m fine with not reaching your heart, because I love you.

追いかけ追いかけ君へと
届かずいつしか一人だ
君へと少しは追いつきたくて
終りを告げる鐘を怒れずに
僕が怒り泣き笑い生きてこれたのは
記憶の中に君がいつもいてくれたから

oikake oikake kimi e to
todokazu itsushika hitori da
kimi e to sukoshi wa oitsukitakute
owari o tsugeru kane o okorezu ni
boku ga okori naki warai ikite koreta no wa
kioku no naka ni kimi ga itsumo ite kureta kara

I run after you, I run after you.
Somehow I’m left alone, unable to reach you.
I want to catch up to you just a little bit.
I wasn’t angry at the bell indicating the end;
I was able to live while being angry, crying and laughing
because you were always there, in my memories.

君が笑った事 ちゃんと前を向いて笑えていた
君が好きだった事 僕は忘れはしない

kimi ga waratta koto chanto mae o muite waraete ita
kimi ga suki datta koto boku wa wasure wa shinai

When you laughed about something, you were laughing looking straight forward.
I will never forget the things you used to love.

ずっと一緒にいて 守れなかった約束もあるけど
ずっと一緒にいる これだけは嘘にしたくない

zutto issho ni ite mamorenakatta yakusoku mo aru kedo
zutto issho ni iru kore dake wa uso ni shitakunai

“Please be with me forever.” – Even though there were promises I couldn’t keep,
“I’ll be with you forever.” – I only wanted this not to be a lie.

いつか世界が君を忘れたとして
錆びつく心で良い 君が好きだから

itsuka sekai ga kimi o wasureta to shite
sabitsuku kokoro de ii kimi ga suki da kara

Even when the world forgets about you someday
I’m fine with my heart being covered in rust, because I love you.

追いかけ追いかけ君へと
追い越しいいつしか一人だ
機械は涙を流さないから
終わらない終わりを待ち続ける
君が怒り泣き笑い一緒に過ごしてた
記憶の中に取り残されセピアに消える

oikake oikake kimi e to
oikoshii itsushika hitori da
kikai wa namida o nagasanai kara
owaranai owari o machitsuzukeru
kimi ga okori naki warai issho ni sugoshiteta
kioku no naka ni torinokosare sepia ni kieru

I run after you, I run after you.
Somehow I’m left alone, passing you.
Because machines don’t cry,
I continue to wait for an endless ending.
The time you spent being angry, crying and laughing with me
is left inside of my memories, fading into sepia.

こんな世界がいつか終わるとして
僕だけは君の事を忘れはしない

konna sekai ga itsuka owaru to shite
boku dake wa kimi no koto o wasure wa shinai

Even when this world ends someday
I’ll be the only one who will never forget about you.

追いかけ追いかけ君へと
届けよ届けよ僕へと
僕らは笑いあえるはずだから
今だけ思い出に浸っていよう
君が怒り泣き笑い一緒に過ごすため
次にまた会えるその日までおやすみなさい

oikake oikake kimi e to
todoke yo todoke yo boku e to
bokura wa warai aeru hazu da kara
ima dake omoide ni hitatte iyou
kimi ga okori naki warai issho ni sugosu tame
tsugi ni mata aeru sono hi made oyasuminasai

I run after you, I run after you.
Come to me, come to me.
Because we are supposed to laugh together,
I’ll get immersed in my memories only now.
So we can spend time being angry, crying and laughing together,
until the day we can meet again – good night.
