[Song/Lyrics] Sprinter- Kalafina

So I have a new earworm. It is called Kalafina’s Sprinter, which incidentally was used as the ending song for Kara no Kyokai.

Just a note: Romaji and English translations are from here. I took the Kanji from AnimeLyrics (deru, ren, iluna and whoever reads Japanese, are the translations accurate?)

Romaji:
Kimi to deai
Kanawanu yume o mita
Sore wa tatta ichibyou de koeru eien

I’m calling kimi o
Mamotte agetakute
Nobashita yubi mo furueteru sono mama dakishimeta

Bokura ni dekiru koto wa tada, ikite irun da to
Chikara tsukiru made nasu sube naku sakebitsuzukeru, sore dake nanda
Kimi ni todoku? Boku ga todoku?
Zetsubou no amasa uchikudaite hashiridasun da ima sugu
Sekai no hate made

I’m calling tooku agaku boku no uta ga
Kimi no hoho o sora ni mukeraretara
Hitori ja nai…

Mukidashi no hontou ga konna karakuri no kokoro ni mo
Afuredasu hodo tsumatte itan da

Hikari no hayasa de kiete yuku kinou e te o futte
Doko made mo akarui sabaku o
Ima, bokura wa toki o keri hashiru

Kaze ni mukai yabureta hata o furi
Kimi no inai michi o boku wa boku no tame
Yukun da… …
Sekai no hate made… …

Kimi ni aitai
Kimi ga koishii
Kimi ni aitai
Kimi ga itoshii

I’m calling boku ga koko ni ita akashi wa
Ima mo kitto kimi no hitomi no naka

I’m calling tojiru rasen ni sakaratte
Naite sakende kiete yuku bokura wa

Ikite, irun da
Koko ni, irun da… …

Kanji:

君と出会い
叶わぬ夢を見た
それはたった一秒で越える永遠

I’m calling 君を
守ってあげたくて
伸ばした指も震えてるそのまま 抱きしめた

僕等に出来る事はただ、生きているんだと
力尽きるまで 成す術無く叫び続ける、それだけだから
君に届く? 僕が届く?
絶望の甘さ打ち砕いて走り出すんだ 今すぐ
螺旋(せかい)の果てまで

I’m calling 遠く足掻く僕の唄が
君の頬を空に向けられたら
独りじゃない……

剥き出しの真実(ほんとう)が こんなカラクリの心にも
溢れ出すほど詰まっていたんだ

光の早さで消えて行く昨日へ手を振って
何処までも明るい砂漠を
今、僕等は時を蹴り走る

風に向かい破れた旗を振り
君のいない道を 僕は僕の為
行くんだ……
螺旋(せかい)の果てまで………

君に会いたい
君が恋しい
君に会いたい
君が愛しい

I’m calling 僕がここに居た証は
今もきっと君の瞳の中

I’m calling 閉じる螺旋に逆らって
哭いて叫んで消えて行く僕等は

生きて、いるんだ
此所に、いるんだ……

As usual, English under the cut:

I met you
And had a unfulfillable dream
It was an eternity that I overcame in just one second

I’m calling
Wanting to protect you
My outstretched fingers were trembling, yet I embraced you like that

What we can do is simply living on
And continuing to shout, unable to do anything, until we tire out, just those things
Will you be reached? Will I reach?
I smash the sweetness of despair and start sprinting, immediately
To the end of the spiral

I’m calling, if my song struggling in the distance
Can make your cheeks turn toward the sky
Then I won’t be alone…

The bared truth was so packed into such a mechanical heart like mine
That it almost overflowed

I wave my hand at the yesterday that vanishes with the speed of light
Now we kick away time and sprint
Through the endlessly bright desert

I head into the wind, waving a ripped flag
I go down the road without you
For my own sake…
To the end of the spiral…

I want to meet you
You’re beloved to me
I want to meet you
You’re lovely to me

I’m calling, the proof that I was here
Is certainly inside of your eyes even now

I’m calling, defying the closing spiral
We cry and shout and vanish

We’re living
We’re here…
