"Returnable Memories" transliteration/translation

I like this one the best out of Ed's image songs (with Hagane no Kokoro at a close second), so I just had to translate it. The lyrics fit him perfectly, in my opinion- very angsty. And I love how it sounds- metallic, melancholy, mature (I can picture the Ed from the later part of the series singing it, while "Asu he no basho" probably fits the younger Ed better).
I wanted to make it perfect this time around, so I bugged my mom about it a lot. So it's more like a (forced) collaborative effort. ^^;


moeru youna yuugure ni terasareta senaka niwa
sore kitta tenohira wa todo kanai
shiiage kudakechiru suna no kakera nankaja
futari wa tsunaida egao wo torimodosu koto sae dekinai

kanashimi ga kono mune wo eguru hodo no
migite niwa itami sae nai keredo
ushinatta nukumori wo wasurenai
sashinobeta kono te niwa kitto nanika
nokoshite miseru…

koukai wo furiharai kono kisha ni norikonda
yakusoku wo hatasu tame hashitte yuku
kurushimi no kazu dake shiawase ni nareru no nara
oretachi wa doko he mukatte naniwo teni ireru no darouka?

doko made mo tsuzuiteku raseun no youni
nigeru koto dekinai michi wo aruite
shinjitsu wo shiru tsumi ni umurete mo
kurushimi wo chikara ni mo kaete miseru
doko he ittemo…

kanashimi ga kono mune wo eguru hodo no
migite niwa itami sae nai keredo
ushinatta nukumori wo wasurenai
sashinobeta kono te niwa kitto nanika
nokoshite miseru…


On a back illuminated by a seemingly burning twilight
the palm that cut it cannot be reached
When finished, if it is disintegrated fragments of sand
the two of us cannot do anything but restore the smiling face that connects us

As if sadness gouges into this heart
my right hand has nothing but pain
I won’t forget the lost warmth
In this given hand, there is probably something
I will leave behind…

I threw away my regrets and climbed onto this train
To achieve a promise, I go running
If only the amount of suffering could become happiness
Where are we headed and what will we obtain?

Like a spiral that continues forever
I walk a path I cannot escape from
Even if I’m buried beneath the sin of knowing truth
I will turn the suffering into strength
no matter where I go…

As if sadness gouges into this heart
my right hand has nothing but pain
I won’t forget the lost warmth
In this given hand, there is probably something
I will leave behind…

Enjoy! ^_^
