Star Seekerこんなに月が綺麗な夜は

The Night, With a Moon as Beautiful as This…

Vocals: yukina
Lyrics: Nanatsume (ななつめ)
Arranged by: tomoya
Album: World of Illusions -The Star Seeker-  (幻想世界 -TheStarSeeker-)
Circle: TUMENECO
Event: C82
Original Theme: The Gensokyo That Floats in Outer Space [宇宙に浮かぶ幻想郷]

Requested by: SeijaK14

This seems to be a straightforward Renko + Merry song (as expected of TUMENECO), with some beautiful imagery throughout. I can’t help but feel, though, that Yukari is somehow involved as well, based on that last stanza…

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

kodomo no koro ni akogareteta yume ga
meikyuu no you ni watashi wo tojikometa

The dream I yearned for since I was a child
Imprisoned me, like a labyrinth…

kieteyuku tobira kidzuita toki ni wa
eien ni modoru koto sae mo dekinai

By the time I became aware of the disappearing door,
I could no longer return, for eternity.

doko ka de nakushita kagi wo sagasu
saisho no kimochi mo omoidasezu ni

I search for that key, which I lost somewhere,
Without recalling what I felt at the start…

konna ni tsuki ga kirei na (kasumi no hareta yoru wa)
yoru wa kimi to futarikiri de (sakura fubuki no yume miru)
machi wo kakeru yume oikakete (owaranai yoru koete)
michi he tsudzuku michi wo tadori (gensou wo oikaketa)

During the night, with a moon (The mist cleared up on this night.)
As beautiful as this, we are alone together. (It is our dream – one of a blizzard of cherry blossoms.)
We race through the town, chasing a dream, (We crossed over the eternal night…)
Following the unknown towards that bewitching knowledge. (Chasing after illusions.) (1)

omoide sae mo
sukoshizutsu sabiteshimau kara
samenai kiseki ni
deaeru hi made sayonara

Because even my memories
Have rusted, little by little…
I bid you goodbye, until the day we can meet again,
In this miracle I cannot awaken from.

yozora wo someta kuroi hoshi ga
kokoro wo ima mo terashiteiru tsuki no you ni

The black stars that stained the night sky
Are like the moon, which still illuminates my heart.

deguchi no mienai michi wo aruki
saisho no kimochi wo sagashitsudzukeru

I walk along a path, the exit of which I cannot see,
And I continue to search for what I felt at the start.

donna ni hoshi ga kirei na (kaze no fukanai yoru mo)
yoru mo kimi to futarikiri de (hitomi wo tojite yume miru)
wasurerareta yume oikakete (hate no nai umi koete)
michi he tsuzuku michi wo tadori (gensou wo oikaketa)

During this night, as well, with stars (The wind does not blow during this night.) (2)
As beautiful as this, we are alone together. (It, too, is our dream – one we have when we close our eyes.)
We chase a forgotten dream, (We crossed over the limitless ocean…)
Following the unknown towards that bewitching knowledge. (Chasing after illusions.)

koigokoro sae mo
sukoshizutsu kieteshimau kara
futari ga deatta
ano yoru made sayonara

Because even my love
Has faded away, little by little…
I bade you goodbye, until that night,
When those two met…

(1) This is the same pun as the one found in the title of ‘Unknown Flower, Mesmerising Journey.’ [未知 ‘michi’ – Unknown, and 魅知 ‘michi’ – Bewitching Knowledge.]
(2) There is a slight difference between this chorus and the first one – こんな ‘konna’ – ‘this’ is replaced with どんな ‘donna’ – ‘how.’ The shift doesn’t work too well when translated – it would become something like ‘How beautiful is the moon, on this night!’ except the night is the subject of the sentence, instead of the moon, so it doesn’t work.
