    Default Fairy Tail Season 9 Ending, "Endless Harmony" translation attempt and discussion

    Okay another translation in progress. This is from the ending of Fairy tail season nine this time.

    EDIT: I went ahead and rearranged this translation based on feedback from other songs. I also checked the Kanji with https://www.uta-net.com/song/256506/

    EDIT 2: Put in corrections in teal while striking out the old lyrics

    "Endless Harmony" by Beverly featuring LOREN



    (HARMONY)

    眠りにつくまで
    君が微笑むまで
    何度だって傷ついた
    その心は何よりも美しい

    nemuri ni tsukumade
    kimi ga hohoemu made
    nan'do datte kizu tsuita
    sono kokoro wa nani yori mo utsukushii

    until I fall asleep
    until you smile
    no matter how many times I get hurt
    that heart above all else is beautiful


    同じ空の下
    同じ星見上げて
    僕らが見た夢が今
    どうか叶いますよに

    onaji sora no shita
    onaji hoshi miagete
    bokura ga mita yume ga ima
    dou kanaimasu yo ni

    Under the same sky
    finding the same stars
    The dream we saw now
    somehow has come true

    Looking up at the same stars
    the dream we saw has now
    somehow come true


    願った未来はきっと
    その手で掴める

    negatta mirai wa kitto
    sono te de tsukameru

    That wished for future will certainly
    be caught in that hand

    That hand will certainly be able
    to catch that wished for future

    You will certainly be able to catch
    that future we wished for with your hand


    この道の先に
    続くハーモニー
    繋がっていく

    kono michi no saki ni
    tsudzuku haamonii
    tsunagatteiku

    That road ahead,
    Unbroken Harmony,
    that is where it leads to

    leads on to
    Unbroken Harmony

    I feel pretty confident in this translation attempt so far. At the end here an exact translation would be more like "That road ahead leads to unbroken Harmony." That said, I feel that put this way gives it a more line by line translation feel even if I am being pretty loose in my translation of "tsunagatteiku" or "to link, to lead, to be related."

    この夜を超えて
    明日を指す光
    導かれた運命が
    僕らを迎えに来るよ

    kono yoru o koete
    ashita o sasu hikari
    michbikareta un'mei ga
    bokura o mukae ni kuru yo

    Passing this night
    light pointing to tomorrow
    guided destiny
    comes to greet us!

    Destiny guided by
    light pointing to tomorrow
    has come for us!

    確かな答えはきっと
    この手で見つける

    tashika na kotae wa kitto
    kono te de mitsukeru

    A certain answer, for sure,
    This hand will find

    This hand will find
    a definite answer

    For sure, I will find
    a certain answer with this hand


    迷わずに強く
    刻むメモリー
    走り続ける

    mayowazu ni tsuyoku
    kazamu memorii
    hashiritsudzukeru

    unwaivering strength
    engraved memory
    continues to run

    Without wavering
    intensely engraved memories
    keep running


    くじけそうでも
    いつでも君が
    信じることを教えてくれた

    kujikesou demo
    itsudemo kimi ga
    shin'jiru koto o oshietekureta

    Even though it seems disheartening
    you gave to me
    the teaching to always believe

    you taught me
    to always beleive
    I want to translate the first line of the last stanza here as "Even though it seems heartbreaking" but I would probably be taking things too liberally doing that.

    The last three lines of this stanza gave me trouble. I am not quite sure if it should be translated as "you taught me to believe anytime" or "you taught me that anytime you believe." or ""you taught me that you believe anytime."

    I went with the latter. I also phrased it "you gave me the teaching" to show that the teaching was something done for singers benefit via the "-tekureta" construction. Then I arranged it the way I felt best made sense.

    願った未来はきっと
    その手で掴める

    negatta mirai wa kitto
    sono te de tsukameru

    That wished for future will certainly
    be caught in that hand

    That hand will certainly be able
    to catch that wished for future

    You will certainly be able to catch
    that future we wished for with your hand


    この道の先に
    続くハーモニー
    繋がっていく

    kono michi saki ni
    tsudzuku haamonii
    tsunagatteiku

    that road ahead,
    unbroken harmony,
    that is where it leads to

    leads on to
    Unbroken Harmony

    The official lyrics end here. HOWEVER, if you listen to the song it is obvious that the singer keeps on singing in english. I did my best to add what she sings here.

    OHH OHH EHH EHH
    OHH OHH OHH OHH

    ENDLESS HARMONY
    JUST YOU AND ME
    AND I GOT YOU
    WE GOT TO MAKE IT RIGHT AGAIN

    OHH OHH
    ENDLESS HARMONY GOT YOU AND
    I-I OH OH OH YEAH YEAH
    YOU GOT ME WE GOT TO WIN TONIGHT

    MMM HMMM

    Since these lyrics are already in english, there is no need to write a translate here :P

    So any screw up, corrections, criticism or suggestions?

    同じ星見上げて
    見上げる means "to look up".

    僕らが見た夢が今
    どうか叶いますよに
    While "The dream we saw now / somehow has come true" is technically not ungrammatical for a sentence where "now" applies to when the dream came true and not when the dream was seen, it is kind of confusing and will probably take most people a minute to understand correctly, especially with the line break right after "now". I would move things around a little--"The dream we saw has now / somehow come true" would be fine, for example.

    確かな答えはきっと
    この手で見つける
    Note that it's この手で and not この手は, so there's an implied subject here.

    迷わずに強く
    The -く makes this an adverb, not a noun.

    いつでも君が
    信じることを教えてくれた
    "You gave me the teaching" sounds really, really awkward in English. I think the fact that this teaching benefits the speaker is implied and you shouldn't twist sentences into weird shapes to make it explicit.

    I have no idea how I managed to mess that one up. Correcting it at once.

    Alright, consider it changed!



    Note that it's この手で and not この手は, so there's an implied subject here.
    I am a little confused on this one.

    願った未来はきっと
    その手で掴める

    I was taking the その手で掴める to mean that the future (subject) was caught (verb) in the context (de particle) of "that hand." So originally, I translated it more or less as:

    "The wished for future will certainly be caught in that hand." However, after some conversations here about moving sentences around for a better english translation I rearragned the sentence to "That hand will certainly be able
    to catch that wished for future" was this a mistake or am I completely misconstruing what the sentence is saying?

    The same thing with 確かな答えはきっとこの手で見つける. I originally translated it as "A certain answer, for sure, this hand will find." Then I reworded it to "This hand will find a definite answer" Should I have left it as it was?


    The -く makes this an adverb, not a noun.
    Ah! I see. Thank you again!

    "You gave me the teaching" sounds really, really awkward in English. I think the fact that this teaching benefits the speaker is implied and you shouldn't twist sentences into weird shapes to make it explicit.
    Changing it now. I guess sometimes it is better to lose the nuance in order to avoid awkward constructions.

    AND A BIG THANK YOU for all your help on this and other songs!

    Sorry, since there was already a は there, I should have said it's not その手が. は isn't necessarily a subject marker (though it can be); it's a topic marker. Sometimes the topic is not the subject of the sentence. 願った未来 is actually functioning as the object here--you can see that because 掴める isn't in the passive form (掴められる), which you would expect it to be if 願った未来 were to be the subject ("the future we wished for will be caught by..."). So if 願った未来 isn't the subject, and その手 isn't the subject, there must be something else that's implied.

    Note also that when referring to body parts, この usually means "my" and その usually means "your."

    Does that help?

    I believe so. But just to be sure

    願った未来はきっと
    その手で掴める

    negatta mirai wa kitto
    sono te de tsukameru

    You will certainly be able to catch
    that future we wished for with your hand
    Thanks again
