Celonius28 Lyrics Special - "Kimi ga Kureta Yume"

There is something you do not know about me, readers. Okay, there are many things you don't know about me. But one of those things is that the Takotsuboya K-ON! Trilogy deeply impacted me, as it has many. As this is a music blog, it impacted others too. A group called Racooon Factory has made some original music, two songs relating to this trilogy, that I wished to share with you.

Be warned. Like the trilogy (NSFW), the lyrics may leave you feeling sad for a while.

I transcribed these from their video. All credit goes to them for creating the video, and to Takotuboya (NSFW) for creating the doujin that made the video possible.

I am not a professional translator. Or even a semi-professional translator. Just one very ambitious dude.

君がくれた夢 (Kimi ga Kureta Yume; The Dream You Gave Me) - Kanji

届かない 夢なんか 見なければ
今頃 うまくやれたかな?
最後の "さようなら" から 指折り数えて、

やさしく 頷いて
励ましてくれた 笑顔が
ゼロからの 繰り返し
心の片隅で 誰を思う?

当たり前の 日常さえ
僕らの胸を 満たしていた。

無駄に流れて過ぎる 時間と距離

追いかけても、 追いついても、
僕らの胸を 締め付けてく。

いつになったら 自分の輝く順番が回ってくるの?

この孤独に 痩せた日々に
君の夢が、 君の歌が、
君の声が、 君の場所が、
僕らの明日を 繋いで行く

動き出した 心の奥で

The Dream You Gave Me - English

...Please tell me.
I need to know if you haven't reached your dream
Have you done well all this time?
Counting from our last "good-byes"
How much time do you think has gone by?

Those encouraging smiles
Gently nod to the sky
As if nothing had happened
And we set off on a journey, starting from zero again
Who remains in the corner of my heart?

These normal everydays
Are very difficult.
Your voice, your place
Satisfies our hearts.

"I'd like to be here,
not grinding with the gears of society."
Left those words behind, and vanished.
Yet I can't find even a little bit of happiness.
Drifting uselessly through time and distance

I chase it, catch it.
Yet only I am left alone.
Your voice, your place
Tightens our chests.

The scenario I'd hoped for isn't looking around
Walking slowly down the road I prepared
I'm going to die without standing out
When will my turn to shine come around?

...Hey, please let me know.
Please wake up.
If only you were still alive.
How will we ever get to fight face to face
In these lonely, empty days?
Your dreams, your song
Your voice, your place
Slowly connect us
To tomorrow

Something has begun to move
You still live inside my heart
With everyone....
