【Lyrics Translation】 SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:mizuki & Tielle, narrative / NOISEofRAIN

Official music video: [youtube] (Japanese IP required, though you can probably find mirrors)

I’d actually been working on this on-and-off (mostly off) ever since the song came out last year, but I held back because I wasn’t confident in my transcription by ear. Now that I’ve gotten to it with the CD release, I’m still not really sure if my line structure did the feeling of the song justice, but I do hope it comes through.

The snow brings us lovely dreams
The glow brings us cheerful smiles
Bright Christmas lights make us happy on freezing night
The snow brings us lovely dreams
The glow brings us cheerful smiles
If you believe in Father Christmas

Memories dance under a starry sky that’s been left on,
And by the glow of lights that are about to fade away.
The sound of the sleeping city, tired out from decorating,
Melts away like snow, and when it’s time for quiet prayers,
The fir tree sways and sings with the color of bells

For one person aligned with a Christmas candle, one song
Dreams, wrapped within the piles of presents
The wishes of all are joining hands
SnowBells blooming from pure white breaths

Children are dreaming of Santa Claus
The stars sing on a holy night
They illuminate the journey reflected in the window
The voices of the children paint the image of tomorrow
Let the next night rain down, Angel, as you play and run
Toward where freedom and the stories lead, our silent knight

The snow brings us lovely dreams
The glow brings us cheerful smiles
Bright Christmas lights make us happy on freezing night
The snow brings us lovely dreams
The glow brings us cheerful smiles
If you believe in Father Christmas

For one person aligned with a Christmas candle, one song
Dreams, lain upon the hanging magical wreaths
The wishes of all are joining hands
SnowBells blooming from pure white breaths

Children are dreaming of Santa Claus
The stars sing on a holy night
They illuminate the journey reflected in the window
The voices of the children paint the image of tomorrow
Let the next night rain down, Angel, as you play and run
Toward where freedom and the stories lead, our silent knight

The snow brings us lovely dreams
The glow brings us cheerful smiles
Bright Christmas lights make us happy on freezing night
The snow brings us lovely dreams
The glow brings us cheerful smiles
If you believe in Father Christmas

Akari wo tomoshita mama no hoshizora to
Kiekake no raito de odoru kioku
Kazaritsukarete nemuru machi no oto ga
Yuki no you ni tokete shizuka ni inoru toki ni
Suzu no iro to utai yureru Fir Tree

Tsumarete ita purezento ni dakareta yume
Sorezore no negai ga te wo tsunaideru
Masshiro na iki de saita SnowBell

Children are dreaming of Santa Claus

The snow brings us lovely dreams
The glow brings us cheerful smiles
Bright Christmas lights make us happy on freezing night
The snow brings us lovely dreams

灯りをともしたままの星空と
消えかけのライトで踊る記憶
飾り疲れて眠る街の音が
雪の様に溶けて 静かに祈る時に
鈴の色と歌い 揺れるFir Tree

Christmas Candleと並んだ一人に一つのソング
積まれていたプレゼントに抱かれた夢
それぞれの願いが手を繋いでる
真っ白な息で咲いたSnowBell

The stars sing on a holy night
窓に映した旅を光らせる
子供達の声が明日を描く
次の夜を降らせ 自由と物語の先に
向かって走り遊ぶ天使のsilent knight

One thought on “SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:mizuki & Tielle – Christmas Scene

  1. Almost end of the year already… So much happened this year. A lot of things change but I always find myself looking for and trying to understand the text of the songs I am listening to. They always accompany me through hard times and I came to understand many a thing about myself and others by listening to them. I hope its not too far off until I understand Japanese as well as I understand English.
