    Default 美しい人よ by Chinnen

    I'm translating 美しい人よ by Chinnen and I'm having a couple of issues. Lyrics and translation so far.

    verse 3 line 2
    あなたを意識すると言えなくて

    [1] Does that mean, "I'm unable to say that I'm conscious of you"? Does anyone know what that could mean in a love song?

    verse 8 (with provisional translation)
    「君と付き合いたいと」食事に誘った日
    The day I invited you to a meal with I'd like to go out with you,
    あの頃の僕には、精一杯の勇気
    I gathered every bit of courage
    願いは見事叶い
    and my wish was marvellously fulfilled.
    あなたは手に届くのに
    Although you are within my grasp,
    「そちら」からの距離は埋まらない
    I don't get closer to you than being on formal terms.

    [2] this doesn't make sense. If he's not getting closer than formal terms with her, how can he have invited her to lunch (or possibly dinner)? or does this refer to something he's dreaming about but can't make happen? But 誘った is in past tense ...

    BTW if you happen to think of any way to make some of the translated lines less wordy, any suggestions welcome.

    [2] - What I'm getting out of this, is that she said yes to the meal/invitation to go out with him (AKA the "wish"/「願い」that pops up throughout the song) and everything seemed be working out (when she supposedly "was within his grasp"), but they still had a hard time making that transition from "friends" to more than that (which is understandable, in my opinion, considering how pure their relationship is made out to be).

    So, simply put - he asked her out, she said yes, but something's stopping him from taking the relationship a step further.

    [1] - maybe it's '/when/ I become conscious of you'?

    I agree with Haze~ on [2]! If you translate it literally it becomes 'I can't close the distance (between us) from here', which implies difficulty in advancing to a romantic relationship.


    ...I'm really not sure about [1] in the context of a love song. ^^;; sorry!
