Sound Life (Rem's song from Trigun) translated into Na'vi
« on: May 04, 2011, 06:23:42 am »
I just saw Trigun for the first time last month. I was wholly captivated.

There is a song with a haunting melody that figures strongly in the main character's memories. Here is a studio version of the song, from the first Trigun soundtrack.

Here are the lyrics in japanese and someone's translation to english.

I do not know any japanese, so I am completely relying on this english translation.

Warning: my grammar is horrible. Please help me!!!

Original / Romaji Lyrics

Na'vi attempt by me
So...   hitotsu-me no yoru ni

The pebble's children hold hands and sketch a waltz.

- I have kept the "So...." and the "Sound Life" in English, because they are in English in the original Japanese song.
- This is a perfect song to be translated into Na'vi because it counts up to eight (thereby aiding in the teaching of the numbers), and because the Na'vi have an octal number system.
- Also it is about ships in the sky and starting a new life on a faraway planet and cause and effect and sadness and longing and beauty and songs.
- Thank you entity on irc for helping at 7:22am 5/4. haha
- scraps:  na key-ti
