I come bearing Replay in all its forms!  
Just wrote this up rough after downloading it earlier (since my copy's being held hostage at CDJapan), so don't worry about credit for romaji/translation -- only did it quickly and there's plenty of room for individual translation on this song, it's just my take. I'm providing the kanji, too, so you other translators out there can see what you come up with.

It's the final turn of the ferris wheel---
You and I float upwards into the night
Halfway up there's the light of the town, of starry skies and panoramas,

Inside my right hand there's warmth, someday it'll shine over someone else*
The rhythm starts to beat faster. My heart screaming out your name.

Exchanging a promise, how and by what magic will we someday meet again?
I'm sorry, thank you, goodbye, only the words I didn't want to add seem to come out
In the future where I feel so faint and astounded, my heart can only cower
Eternity will often resemble those ten minutes. In those times, I'll think (of you).

Turning    turning    look at us in the night, in the darkness, searching for light
Darling    beloved    I think of you and it causes pain in my chest

The dead of night, still on the ferris wheel---
We fetch up things left behind to take them
Tears of instant-dry glue. They attach to my open wounds.
Ah, that's it. I'm such a person. Before meeting you, I hated myself.
So inside the most important place in my heart, I call out your name.

Turning    turning    my heart again in the night, in the darkness, searches for you
Darling    beloved    I don't know how long before the light goes out

I don't need defined things somehow. Sadness is drawn out through tears.
It's alright. That's just me.
With an empty right palm, the remaining warmth is just troublesome.

I closed my eyes. My memories fell. Stars twinkled and sang.
For a hundred years that beating resounds, your voice reaches out.

Around    and around    thinking of you    once    once    but I lost you
Turning    turning    the way we were on that day    comes to mind in the night**

Ah, the same again.    If I turn back, then it's morning.
Red.    Blue.    Dreams.    Lies.    The colored sky.
Coming home.    The first train.    Sunlight.    The window.    The glittering world flowing through it.
Already my hand is left cold***,
It's goodbye.

Translator's notes;
* Technically it's "a different person" and not someone else but with interchangeable meanings in Japanese, it just made sense to go with something that didn't make it sound like Tarou had a back-up in mind. XD
** The kanji used for "comes to mind" is the same as used for "floating upwards" in the second line, clever use of double readings.
*** Phrase used here is more along the lines of "left jilted / given the cold shoulder", but considering the references to warmth earlier I picked something that satisfied both accuracy and irony. XD

I always love ryuutarou's lyrics~~*o*
Alouquageist_alouqua on August 14th, 2008 02:01 pm (UTC)
woa, thanks!
the lyrics are pretty nice
that was replay right?
大ちゃんdatdai on August 14th, 2008 02:24 pm (UTC)
nyan~ you're sooo quick, I was about doing it XDDD is it oke, if I take your lyrics? I do have klanji and romanji myself (just did it right now XD btw. I do have some different words f.e. I used 'ma ni' insted of 'aida ni' and also 'suki' instead of 'geki' I don't know, my japanese isn't that good, but it just sounds to me like that?! ^^;;;)~

and thanks again for the translations, don't have to do it myself XDDD

You're absolutely right on both of the romaji corrections, thanks. XD To tell the truth I did the translation and was about to post it here, then thought "...Oh man, most people want romaji more than translations anyway!" so just went through it once quickly writing what I saw and didn't listen to it over again. ^^;; Tell me if you have any others you noticed, huh? I'm going to correct the post now so people get an accurate romanisation.

And yeah, take them! Go nuts. XD
大ちゃんdatdai on August 14th, 2008 03:07 pm (UTC)
aaah, I see~ nya, anyway thanks a looot, ne? XDD
And about romanji~ I always have problems with the doeble meaning and then 'what? what did he said?' and then it's the other word meaning, so I'm used to correct them with the song, even if ryutarou likes to leave half of words out XDD
anyway... AGAIN thanks a LOT for translations. I also would love to do 'dolly' today, but I don't know if I could get ready, because I have to tidy up and stuff, so I'm really stuck... gnaaaah~ but dolly is even longer then 'replay' >.<;;

*bow* thank you~ *took them* when my copy arrives or when somebody will upload higher quality of the pv, I will sub the vid... YAY XDD

His lyrics often deal with the same topics these days.. "Exchanging a promise, how and by what magic will we someday meet again?", sentences like that, I've read these things so often. And when I say that I don't want to say that it's negative. I love his lyrics. "Coming home. The first train. Sunlight. The window. The glittering world flowing through it." Could be my thoughts, I often think about these things, seeing the first train, the first sunlight.

It feels like there has literally been the same line in every recent song written by Ryuu. "[...] will we someday meet again?" He uses that everywhere nowadays.

Well, that aside, there are some really lovely lines in this song. "Halfway up there's the light of the town, of starry skies and panoramas," is one, and "Tears of instant-dry glue. They attach to my open wounds" is another. ^__^

It's a wonderful translation, thank you for your work!

thanks for sharing, the lyrics are very beautiful.

Thank you very much for sharing! I agree his lyrics seem have the same theme nowadays, like he's doing the same song over and over...I guess the song's name Replay is kind of fitting here xD. Luckily I like the themes he uses.

"I'm sorry, thank you, goodbye, only the words I didn't want to add seem to come out" -> This is beautiful :´).

Thank you!!! I love this song. I wish my Japanese was good enough to make a translation myself XD but luckily there are nice people like you out there <3
riya_chanriya_chan on September 9th, 2008 06:14 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! It's gorgeous how the form of the lyrics emulates short flashes that you would perceive from a ferris wheel. Both the lyrics and your translations are beautiful! ^^
