To Aru Majutsu no Index – Chikaigoto ~sukoshi dake mou ichido~

1 Comment

IKU, To Aru Majutsu no Index ED2

Hm, it’s interesting how I end up translating so many songs from Index. Anyway, I was surprised that the theme changed so late into the series. Not that that’s a bad thing, considering this song. I think I actually prefer this to the first one. It reminds me a bit of “Merry Go Round” from Yakitate!! Japan.

Kanji notes follow the translation.

Vow ~Just a Little, One More Time~
Vocals: IKU
Lyrics & Music: IKU
Arrangement: Takase Kazuya

In both the unconcerned present’s reality
And even the still unseen next morning,
Only these thoughts that can’t be conveyed
Are hidden in my heart.

“It was by chance,” I laugh,
As my voice pushes through.
I’ll reach the “other side”
By believing in myself.

What I remember is that
The wishes I want to grant
Always continued to challenge me,
Once more, just once more.

The thoughts that were lost
Will change shape, but I’m sure that
I’ll take them back. Until that day comes,
I will continue to search.

Even while you stumble and fall,
Even when you’re lost and troubled,
Believe in the light of hope
That lies before your gaze.

“Hesitation” will close off
Tomorrow.
There is no one else –
Come on, by yourself…

In the future that I imagined,
Sometimes, I lose my confidence,
And I feel like
It won’t be granted again, but…

I search for things to
“Exchange” for the thoughts I lost.
I make excuses, pretending not to know,
And continue to search.

What I remember is that
The wishes I want to grant
Always continued to challenge me,
Once more, just once more.

I search for things to
“Exchange” for the thoughts I lost.
I make excuses, pretending not to know,
And continue to search.

Notes:
Verse 1, line 1: Sung いま (ima, “now”), the kanji reads 現実 (genjitsu, “reality”). Both are included in the translation, as are the next two cases.
Verse 1, line 2: Sung あした (ashita, “tomorrow”), the kanji reads 朝 (asa, “morning”).
Verse 5, line 4: Sung ひかり (hikari, “light”), the kanji reads 希望 (kibou, “hope”).

Chikaigoto ~sukoshi dake mou ichido~
Lyrics & Music: IKU

Nanigenai ima mo
Mada minu ashita de sae mo
Yuzurenai omoi dake wa

誓い言~スコシだけもう一度~
Lyrics & Music: IKU
Arrangement: 高瀬一矢

何気ない現在も
まだ見ぬ朝でさえも
譲れない思いだけは
胸に秘めてる

「偶然」と笑う
声かきわけ
たどり着く「向こう側」
自分を信じてる

思い出されることは
叶えたい願いは いつも
もう一度 もう一度だけと
挑みつづけてた

失くした想いは そう
形を変えてでも きっと
取り戻す その日が来るまで
探しつづけてく

つまずきながらも
迷い 悩む時さえも
見つめるその先の
希望を信じて

「ためらい」は明日を
閉ざしてしまう
他の誰でもないの
さあ 自分自身で

思い描いた未来
時には 自信を失くして
もう二度と 叶わないような
気持ちになるけど

失くした想いと そう
「引きかえ」になるもの 探す
言い訳は 知らないフリして
探しつづけてく

思い出されることは
叶えたい願いは いつも
もう一度 もう一度だけと
挑みつづけてた

失くした想いと そう
「引きかえ」になるもの 探す
言い訳は 知らないフリして
探しつづけてく
