    Default Some help with a few lines

    This is the song: http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/fmp...ichidokimi.jis

    I'll mark the line I'm unsure of in red. Well, honestly, I'm unsure of any of them, but these are the ones I'm especially unsure of. Could someone please tell me if I'm way off?

    Good-bye always arrives
    Suddenly like a gentle breeze
    The day tears flowed down the smiling face
    Of you, who appeared to be a little strong


    I'm sure that today too
    You're looking straight ahead at tomorrow
    Like a sunflower that bloomed
    On that wind-swept hill

    No matter how far apart we are
    I pray that this song reaches you
    On the night when tears won't stop
    I want to become the moon that illuminates your window

    Because I think we'll surely
    Meet again...

    Your warm palm
    Wrapped my stretched out hand
    I will never forget
    Those sweet days

    The reason we met
    The reason we parted
    I now firmly embrace them in my heart
    Believing
    Praying
    That someday you reach your dream

    Ah, I wish I could
    Meet you one more time...

    If the city looks beautiful after an evening shower
    Then surely people become beautiful from the number of tears they shed

    Everyone has a place they're going to
    I pray we meet again even at such a place...


    No matter how far apart we are
    I pray that this song reaches you
    On the night when tears won't stop
    I want to become the moon that illuminates your window

    Because I think we'll surely
    Meet again...

    I didn't have enough time to go through the entire song, but the red lines looked fine to me.

    Just one little thing: tsuyogaru is not quite to appear strong. It's more like to act strong/tough, in a somewhat stubborn manner.
    Here, the "you" is trying to act strong at the time of farewell.

    >That someday you reach your dream
    >kimi ga itsuka no yume ni todoku you ni

    Itsuka (some day/some time) can refer to both the future or the past depending on the context (as in "Someday I will be president" [future]; "I think I met you someday" [past]). Your translation would be correct if the line read "kimi ga itsuka yume ni todoku you ni".

    "Itsuka no ~" (literally, "from someday"), on the other hand, is a difficult phrase to translate, but basically it means "from before" or "from (some point in) the past". "Itsuka no yume" (literally, "that dream from someday") means "that dream you held before (in the past)"; it's difficult to judge from the context alone, but probably this refers to one's childhood dreams.
    "If a person who indulges in gluttony is a glutton, and a person who commits a felony is a felon, then God is an iron."

    Thanks Datenshi, good point.

    How about "That you'll reach the dream you've held all this time" for that line?
