Lyrics: Maes Hughes Character Vocal "Angel Heart"  
Hello everyone :) First post--I've done a romanization and translation of Hughes's character vocal "Angel Heart".

---

ANGEL HEART

kotae no nai basho de denwa wo kaketeiru
shizukana senaka wa naita you ni mieta


No one answers, so I hang up the phone
You looked like you were crying as you quietly turned your back

jouzu ni kakushiteru tsumori no kurushisa mo
zenbu wakatteru
yakusoku wo shita darou?


Even the suffering you’re so good at trying to hide
I understand everything
I promised you, didn’t I?

mamotteru
oshiminaku tataerareru
yorokobi no kawari ni wa
nani mo hoshii to omowanai


I’ll protect you
And support you unreservedly
The only thing I want
Is for you to be happy

moshimo kanashimi ga mune wo utsu toki wa
kimi no tsuyosa wo shinjite
suki to otta tate ni narou


If sorrow shoots you in the heart
I’ll believe in your strength
And be your unseen shield

SOFA ni uzumorete nemutta yokogao ni
sotto kuchizuketa
kaze wo hikanaiyou


While you were sleeping with your face buried in the sofa
I kissed you softly
Don’t catch cold

kirei da yo
eien ni soba ni iru yo
yume no naka kono koe wo uta ni kanjite kamawanai


You’re beautiful
I’ll be by your side forever
I’ll be the voice that sings to you in dreams

kimi ni okuru omoi wa ANGEL HEART
dakedo komatta
hontou wa kimi ga boku no tenshi datta


The feelings I give you (are) ANGEL HEART
But, instead, the truth is
You ended up being my angel

moshimo kanashimi ga mune wo utsu toki wa
kimi no tsuyosa wo shinjite
suki to otta tate ni narou


If sorrow shoots you in the heart
I’ll believe in your strength
And be your unseen shield

ame ni furareta kousaten no sumi de
kiseki no you ni deatta
itoshii mono no kasa ni narou


On a street corner in the rain
Like a miracle of fate, we’ll meet
My love will be your umbrella

My theory on the chorus: [EP 25 SPOILER, highlight to read] I think this is an allusion to the fact that Hughes was literally shot in the chest while (indirectly) protecting Roy.

x-posted to fm_alchemist, hughesxroy, maes_hughes, and my journal, so my apologies if this ends up on your FL more than once ^^;

;_;

It's screaming "MaesxRoy" to me. =/ *sighs* I can't help it, I adore that pairing.

Thank you for the translation!

Yeah, I think that's the idea :D Isn't it great? <3

You're most welcome ^^

Subtext? We don't need no subtext! That flat out says it!

I know, I feel so triumphant >D

I like your theory behind the chorus. Ooooh. :D

It's so sad ;-;

I'm trying SO HARD to think of this as Hughes to Elicia but...

MAESROY! It's canon I knew it >D
zanier by the minute!brainmuffin on November 16th, 2005 01:08 am (UTC)
It took me so long to convince myself it wasn't about Gracia or Elysia XD But neither of them talk on the phone with Hughes all the time, have hidden angst, hate the rain, or have speficially mentioned promises Hughes made to them. So.

It totally is :D
Jiah Pet: Just Add Water!jiah on November 16th, 2005 01:10 am (UTC)
And it does use the word "kiss", right? >D

I'm don't speak Japanese fluently, but I had my Japanese teacher listen to the song and check my translation, and she's a native speaker. :3

... i.e. Yes. It does. XD

...I don't like Maes/Roy. I don't see it, I don't read it, I don't believe in it.

AND YET, THERE IT IS. RIGHT. IN. THE LYRICS. *spazzes*
zanier by the minute!brainmuffin on November 16th, 2005 02:17 am (UTC)
... I suppose it would be impolite to gloat :x
SilverWind: Kratsilverwind9 on November 16th, 2005 04:54 am (UTC)
Well, it's one-sided... but still very blatant on Hughes' feelings, at least. O_o Dear god, Hughes, your wife! :/
Kissing sleeping person on couch... how... uncharacteristic? O_o;;;

Saying that different parts of the song are addressed to different people (i.e. kissing his sleeping child makes more sense...) is a bit of a cop out, I guess. But still... O____o
zanier by the minute!brainmuffin on November 16th, 2005 05:30 am (UTC)
I don't think Hughes would leave Elysia sprawled out snoring on the couch. XD He'd put her to bed. ^_^ And it's not uncharacteristic of him at all---Hughes is 100% parent; to do watch over somebody while they're sleeping like that is very protective and like him.

I don't think it's one sided, but I'm biased. XD In fact, in the series it would make a lot more sense for Roy to be in love with Hughes and not vice-versa. For my reasoning, highlight: [EP 50 SPOILER]Roy was willing to give up everything---his dreams of being Fuhrer, even his life---to avenge Hughes's death.

Now, I actually ship Roy/Riza by the end of/post-series, but I totally think Hughes and Roy were in love :)
whisperitlikeit’sasecret。dusk on November 16th, 2005 04:57 am (UTC)
...Oh my. Is Hughes taking advantage of Roy while he's asleep?


Gah, this isn't supposed to be canon, but it SO IS.
zanier by the minute!brainmuffin on November 16th, 2005 05:33 am (UTC)
XD! Kissing somebody's face doesn't count as taking advantage of them. Probably.

Ahaha yes OTP winz :D

You're very welcome :)

I personally think a person can talk to different people and say the same thing to them.. aside from some specifics.

My theory is that at first he's talking to Roy, then briefly to his family, and both in the chorus.

Go to the song brothers: the first half is Ed's PoV and the second half is Al's. So it to have two thoughts, though similar, put forth together...
zanier by the minute!brainmuffin on November 18th, 2005 07:12 am (UTC)
... Well, you could look at it as platonic love if you want to... XD;
Titaniajinxia on November 18th, 2005 07:44 am (UTC)
Oh yeah, RoyxHughes is just SO canon now XD *dances a little jig*

I think the part where he kisses someone, it looks more as if he's kissing his wife or daughter. But the rest is too glaringly RoyxHughes that I just can't help but fal in love all over again with this guy. Thank you for making my OTP comes true!

I think it's all about Roy. I can't see Hughes letting Elysia fall asleep on the couch without putting her to bed, or Gracia falling asleep on the couch in the first place XD Roy, on the other hand, is a bum, and probably collapses snoring with his face in the couch all the time ;)

It took me ages to convince myself I wasn't insane and, yes, it really is about Roy XD And then I went squee for about half an hour straight.

And so, you are most welcome! :D

Wow. So sad and pretty. Thanks for the translation.

You're very welcome :)

(Icon love! We need more Ed/Russel.)
