[Translation] Diary

Thanks to kinix for the lyrics.
I tried to translate in the best way that I could, but some sentences were difficult to interpret. Very beautiful and deep lyrics. I hope ayu can sing it.



This is just my diary

It's fine if it doesn't reach anyone

No one notices in any case
And if they do they don't even care
I'm at my limit by myself only

Saying not to behave as if giving the impression
that the morning will no more
that the sun won't shine on me ever again

Why did you die?
Why you...
Why am I living
In a world without you

In a time where everything had became void
but turned out fine no matter what
my throat was thirsty and wished for water

eventually if I woke up
as if in the past days
feeling hungry, I'd satisfy my appetite

She said, I can't protect the things which are important to me
She said, If it's you, you can protect them, can't you

Why did you die?
Why you...
Why am I living
In a world without you


She said, I can't protect the things which are important to me
She said, If it's you, you can protect them, can't you

This is just my diary

Nice translation. If you don't mind, I'd like to point out one thing:

どうでも良い means something like "I don't care". Like どうでもいい話 or 私はもうそんなことはどうでも良くなった.
(Definition: 価値がない、どっち決まっても良い、あまり興味が無い、といった意味の言い回し。Other examples here.)

I think that made the thirsty/hunger part difficult for you to interpret. I interpreted it as: after my mind hit rock bottom and felt numb, my body started craving for water (life) again. Maybe in the future, I might even feel alive enough to crave food as well.

---

The lyrics are so heartbreaking, I couldn't help but make my own translation too:

Diary

This is just my diary

I don’t mind if my words don’t reach anyone

Nobody would notice anyway
and even if they did, they wouldn’t care,
they’re too busy with themselves

Telling me not to act
as if morning will never come again
as if the sun will never shine on me again

*
Why did you die?
Why did you…?
Why am I living
in a world without you?

When everything had turned to nothing
and I didn’t care about anything anymore
I felt thirsty and craved water

I wonder if I’d feel hungry and satisfy my hunger
like I would’ve done in the past
if I’d wake up at some time

**
She told me, "Important things
are harder to protect"
She told me, "If it’s you,
you can protect them for me"

* repeat
** repeat

This is just my diary

I wonder if this is about Miccie and Ayu's grandmother (I'm guessing they're cousins on Ayu's mother side as I imagine Ayu isn't in contact with her father's side).

^ I definitely agree. These lyrics are sad, but I don't think the current ayu will sing this. She's a lot stronger and more confident now.

That's what I thought. Very deep, depressing lyrics like she used to write back then.

Really amazing lyrics. I hope ayu records this someday.
