[translation] “Free!” Character Song Vol. 1 (Haruka)「アオノカナタ」

LACM-14121

「アオノカナタ」/ “Ao no Kanata” – 島崎信長
“The Blue Yonder” – Shimazaki Nobunaga

“I know a place I can call my own
No one’s voice can reach me here…”

Translation:

Submerged beneath the tranquil water and drops of wavering light
As if to melt into the silence
I match my heartbeat to the ripples in the water

Everything becomes one / My course is set
I know this, and I will accept it with all I am

I know a place I can call my own
No one’s voice can reach me here / Wo-oh
It’s something much more precious than victory or defeat
This scenery that always occupies my thoughts
The blue yonder forever etched into my memory

I can try to resist, but it makes no difference / Here, I am all alone
The current mirrors my heart and shifts from moment to moment

It envelops my body completely / I place my trust
In that power, and I will never doubt it

I know a place where I can be free
Here, even my doubts wither away to next to nothing / Wo-oh
Now, as I swim at my own speed
Nothing can stand in my way / I want to pursue
The eternal blue yonder

At the sensation that traces my existence / I’ll slip into the water
To find the true freedom that rises to the surface

I know a place I can call my own
No one’s voice can reach me here / Wo-oh
It’s something much more precious than victory or defeat
This scenery that always occupies my thoughts
The blue yonder forever etched into my memory

Romaji:

Shizuka na mizu no soko de / tayutau hikari no tsubu
Chimoku to tokeau you ni / kasanaru kodou wo azukete

Subete ga / hitotsu ni naru / sono yukue wo
Kanji nagara ukeireteiku

Jibun dake no basho wo shitteiru
Dare no koe mo todokanai n da / wo-oh
Kachimake yori motto taisetsu na
Itsudatte atama no naka wo shimeru keshiki
Yakitsuita ao no kanata

Donnani aragattemo / koko de ha hitorikiri da
Nagare ha kokoro wo utsushite / tsugi no shunkan wo erabu yo

Karada wo tsutsumikonda / sono chikara wo
Utagawazu ni shinjiteiyou

Jiyuu ni naru basho wo shitteiru
Mayoi sae mo hodo kareteiku / wo-oh
Ima wo oyogu ore no supiido de
Nani kara mo jama sarezu ni oikaketai
Eien no ao no kanata

Sonzai wo nazoru kanshoku ni / suberikomu sono sukima ni
Ukabi agaru tashika na freedom

Jibun dake no basho wo shitteiru
Dare no koe mo todokanai n da / wo-oh
Kachimake yori motto taisetsu na
Itsudatte atama no naka wo shimeru keshiki
Yakitsuita ao no kanata
