【Lyrics Translation】 STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION, STEREO DIVE

See: STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION lyrics project

The imagery of the lindenbaum stems from the writer’s childhood in Germany. It turns out that a lot of distinctive imagery in his lyrics come from that time in Germany, for example landscapes and place names (though this particular one might actually be closer to the Netherlands).

I heard a nostalgic song, blending in with the noises of the crowd
It was playing out the wish that we’ve been losing constantly

I can’t get used to the unfriendly light of the city

I wonder if you’re smiling right now
With no trace of deception
The words that I chose scorched my heart
Not that they can even change anything

Maybe if I’d done this back then – those thoughts are meaningless nonsense
There’s some pain in my head from the lingering refrain

Stop the noise of this unstable city

I wonder if you still remember
The time when the waves returned to zero
I discovered a gravitation like a phantasm,
Uninterrupted by anyone

It’s not all things that will be forgotten
I looked up at the linden tree like I did that day

I wonder if you’re smiling right now
With no trace of deception
The words that I chose scorched my heart
Not that they can even change anything

Natsukashii uta ga kikoeta zattou ni magirete
Bokutachi ga nakushitsuzuketa negai wo kanadeta

Buaisou na machi no akari narenai yo

Ima kimi wa waraete iru darou ka
Nani mo itsuwaru koto mo naku
Eranda kotoba ni kokoro wo kogashita
Kaeru koto mo dekinai kuse ni

Ano toki ni kou shitetara tte imi no nai tawagoto
Kobiritsuku rifurein no sei de atama ga itanda

Fuantei na machi no noizu tomete yo

Mada kimi wa oboete iru darou ka
Nami ga zero ni kaeru toki wo
Maboroshi no you na inryoku wo shitta
Dare ni jama sareru koto mo naku

Wasurerareru koto bakari ja nai
Ano hi no you ni rinde wo aoida

Ima kimi wa waraete iru darou ka
Nani mo itsuwaru koto mo naku
Eranda kotoba ni kokoro wo kogashita
Kaeru koto mo dekinai kuse ni

懐かしい歌が聴こえた雑踏に紛れて
僕達が失くし続けた願いを奏でた

不愛想な街の明かり慣れないよ

今君は笑えているだろうか
何も偽ることもなく
選んだ言葉に心を焦がした
変えることも出来ないくせに

あの時にこうしてたらって意味のない戯言
こびりつくリフレインのせいで頭が痛んだ

不安定な街のノイズ止めてよ

まだ君は覚えているだろうか
波がゼロに還る時を
幻のような引力を知った
誰に邪魔されることもなく

忘れられることばかりじゃない
あの日のようにリンデを仰いだ

今君は笑えているだろうか
何も偽ることもなく
選んだ言葉に心を焦がした
変えることも出来ないくせに
