【Lyrics Translation】 Sakamoto Maaya, Fate/Grand Order -Cosmos in the Lostbelt- opening theme

The title is officially romanized as “Gyakko”, but oh well.

Backlight
Lyrics: Sakamoto Maaya
Composition: Izawa Ichiyou
Arrangement: Izawa Ichiyou / Eguchi Ryou

I was melancholic, seeing the same ceiling there every time I woke up,
Telling me that this is reality – there is no exit from here.

How do I put this to an end? Both completion and destruction are stories that will never arrive.
If my destiny is already set in stone,
Then I won’t imagine the future I couldn’t choose – that’s what I vowed, but…

In the abyss of slumber, I see a gentle dream, knowing that it is an illusion.
I run to you; just a little closer and my fingers will touch you –
And then, smiling, I wake up.

I don’t know what I truly want, despite this hunger.
If I stay still, I will be captured by the past – the only thing to do is go.

I’m not so innocent as to easily say that all people are born equal.
It only hurts for a moment – you get used to it quickly.
It was so much easier when I could plot things out neatly like that.

On the banks of despair, I shout out a nostalgic name, and it is like distant thunder.
That I am still fighting, that I am on the other side of the storm – let it carry my message to only you.

Break the silence and cross the barrier; run to that dazzling other side.
Baptism of rain and a miry road – bathe in the backlight and be covered in mud.
I am here.

I run to you; just a little closer and my fingers will touch you – and then, the future I wanted to choose…
On the banks of despair, I shout out a nostalgic name, and it is like distant thunder.
That I am still fighting, that I am on the other side of the storm – let it carry my message to only you.

逆光
作詞: 坂本真綾
作曲:伊澤一葉
編曲:伊澤一葉・江口 亮

憂鬱だった いつも目覚めると同じ天井があって
現実だって思い知らされる ここには出口がない

どうやって終わらせるの 完成も崩壊も永遠におとずれない物語
もう運命が決まってるなら
選べなかった未来は想像しないと誓ったはずなのに

まどろみの淵で私は優しい夢を見る 幻と知りながら
あなたに駆け寄って もうすぐ指がふれる
そして微笑みながら目覚めるの

本当に欲しいものがわからない こんなに飢えているのに
じっとしてたら過去にとらわれる どうしても行くしかない

人は生まれながら誰もが平等って 簡単に言えるほど無邪気じゃない
痛むのは一瞬だけ すぐに慣れてしまうわ
そう割り切れたほうがずっとラクだった

絶望のほとり 懐かしい人の名を叫ぶ それは遠雷のように
まだ闘ってると 嵐の向こう側にいると あなただけに届けばいい

沈黙を破り 障壁を越えて 眩しすぎる向こう側へ 走れ
雨の洗礼と ぬかるんだ道 逆光浴びて 泥だらけになれ
私はここにいる

あなたに駆け寄って もうすぐ指が触れる そして選びたかった未来を
絶望のほとり 懐かしい人の名を叫ぶ それは遠雷のように
まだ闘ってると 嵐の向こう側にいると あなただけに届けばいい
