(English) Alumina

As the flowing waves of time continue without end, 

There's a light that glimmers, just for a bit, 

Step by step I'll carve these memories into the world,

And I won't ever stop believing ...

 

There was once a dream I had that no one seemed to share,  

So I threw away trivial things and left them there,

These feelings I've kept in my heart, will never be revealed to you.

  

I'm still stuck between reality and the ideal world beyond,

And my feet are bound by shackles, a sacrificial bond, 

All this impulse swelling up now can never be suppressed,

My heart's longing is too strong to give in, so I'll never rest ... 

 

"Pretense", "fear", "vanity" and a silly thing like "grief", 

Will never affect me, I'm not that weak, 

 

I won't be held captive by loneliness you fear, 

See, above all, I'm just a trickster. 

 

Gazing at the buildings up shooting up into the night,

Taking in the stillness of the vast and starry sky, 

"Will I be lost just like the rest?" I wonder, somewhere deep inside ... 

 

The entire town overflows with people filled with lust,  

I won't let them get to me, and I'm the only one I'll trust,

This road winding, twisting, turning, will lead me to the end, 

So I'll reach my hands out wide to accept, whatever comes next ... 

    

Slowly, I close my eyes, and in the sea of consciousness arise, 

I can see, everything, and I know when I'll finally claim the future I've made ... 

 

Being blessed with your own life, just to waste it all away,

and dying somewhere all alone, are really one in the same. 

So I must move forward,  taking the true me in my grasp,

I'll obtain "myself", shining like gem, that no one else has! 

 

Facing the simplicity and piercing straight on through, 

Will transform the lie into something new,

I want to believe in something, so I'll continue, 

it’s just my faith. The absolute truth.

 

As the flowing waves of time continue without end, 

There's a light that glimmers, just for a bit, 

Step by step I'll carve these memories into the world,

And I won't ever stop believing ...

    I really enjoyed this cover of the song as it's been a favorite for awhile now. I'm happy you made this cover and I can't wait to see the others along with new ones! I also really love your voice and how it fits with the songs perfectly (in my opinion).

    Great job!

    This is by far the BEST English version of the lyrics I've seen (and I've come across a LOT)! And I'm not exaggerating. It has a good flow without sacrificing any of the original meaning. I've looked at some direct translations and as far as the meaning of the song goes, you've hit it dead on! I couldn't ask for any more out of an English interpretation.

    Combined with your incredible voice, your cover is top notch. Well done!

    Keep up the good work. Your stuff is great! :-)
