An introduction to my favourite song from my favourite composer, Akatsuki No Kuruma, by Fiction Junction Featuring Yuuka. This song, most noticible from the anime, Gundam Seed, is an insert from ep 27 (?) and 40. I love it the moment I hear it, thanks to understanding jap a little, I came to love the lyrics. I've been looking at versions after versions of translations of the song, and I can tell you, I kinda sick of it. But not till I watched this video. It has chinese translation to it and it's beautiful...
Enjoy, Akatsuki No Kuruma...
Chinese(TOUGH time finding unknown words ^_^;;)
English (By me, base on the chinese lyrics)
The gentle winds concealed a tearful lady in the shadow of the tree
Calmly looking at her unfamiliar self
Playing the guitar for the departing one
Heave a sigh over him, the star falls off the sky
"Do not leave me", screamed as loud as she could
Only the orange petals waver
Leaving behind on her soft face
The warmness of his palms gradually faded
Leaving behind a resonating tune plucked by his fingers
Relief the compassion like a child from the gentle hands
Burning wheels accompanied the continuous journey
The guitar tune, grieving for the departing one
Relentlessly disrupting one's string in the heart
A pure white heart, which have never been tainted by sorrow
Like orange petals waver over the shadow of summer
Like a kind, vanishing face
Overcoming the vast red desert
Listened to the rhythm of departure
Recalling everything while walking on this land
Memories matured, like plant sprouting new lives
Sending of the dawn's carriage
The orange petals still waver somewhere
A Nostalgic twilight
Before it could be found again
Please do not put out the lamp
The wheels turn, it'll always be
PS: My gaming nick is named "KamiKaze" cause of this song. It actually sounds like a kamikaze's wife (daughter) leaving to die. To be frank, I hate japanese who thinks they are right for WW2, and saying things like "This is war, people dies right?" (source from CNA) Eat shit will ya! I learn japanese for peace, not for war. I respect Kamikaze for their love of their country and to die for it, not for the sake of killing others in war.
Nevertheless, this is still my favourite anime song.
