Fate/Grand Order – Kuuhaku

【Lyrics Translation】 Sakamoto Maaya, Fate/Grand Order Arcade theme song; c/w Gyakkou

Blank Space
Lyrics: Sakamoto Maaya
Composition / Arrangement: la la larks
Strings Arrangement: Ishitsuka Tooru / Eguchi Ryou

When I looked back, you were no longer in sight.
You won’t say anything to the end, I see, to touch upon the heart of the matter.

No one can fill in the blank space inside me.
I’m sure there are lights I will see ahead, but…

Fate/Grand Order – Gyakkou

【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…

Fate/Grand Order – Eternity Blue

【Lyrics Translation】 Ayumi, Fate/Grand Order ending theme

There’s very little information publicly available about the vocalist, including how her name is actually pronounced. Unless there’s something I’m seriously overlooking (possible), I imagine the one way to find out more would be to attend one of FGO’s live events.

Eternity Blue
Vocals: Ayumi
Lyrics / Composition: sachi
Arrangement: Nagai Masamichi

I didn’t know how to shed tears, or how to laugh.
In the future that I searched for blindly, what would I wish for?

I’d thought that the sky was always the grey of ash.
You taught me the true color of this world.

Fate/Grand Order (Sakamoto Maaya / la la larks) – Shikisai

【Lyrics Translation】 Sakamoto Maaya, Fate/Grand Order OP (First Order ED); Shiawase ni Tsuite Watashi ga Shitte iru Itsutsu no Houhou / Shikisai

This translation is part of the School Food Punishment lyrics project, under the la la larks branch.

Sound produced and performed by la la larks! It’s nice to hear another collaboration between Sakamoto and Eguchi, though it’s considerably different in tone from Buddy.

Colors
Lyrics: Sakamoto Maaya
Composition / Arrangement: la la larks
Strings Arrangement: Eguchi Ryou / Ishitsuka Tooru

When I’m alone, I can hear the words – “If it’s painful, feel free to stop” –
Deep, almost like a black hole; from a sweet voice, frightening and tempting.

I’ll try mimicking the words you so often speak, and say that it’s nothing.
It doesn’t matter if that’s a lie – if it gives me a motive to continue to stand…
