Ever wondered what Duty is about?

I-アイ-Have you just like me fallen in love with “Duty” by I -アイ-?

(If you haven’t heard it, you can download it on iTunes. Visit you iTunes store and search for I-ai- or I -アイ-.)

Hiroaki sings in both English and Japanese and I got curious about the Japanese parts so I asked my friend Hide to translate them.

So here follows “Duty” translated into English. The bold text is the one that has been translated, the rest was English to begin with.

A great tanks to Hide for translation!


Duty by I -アイ- (translated into English)

Lyrics & Music by Hiroaki Nakashima

In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
8.11, the life that begins,
links to the spirit that passed away, in my mind
Sign me “Birth”… or … sign me “End”…

Water to arrive at compare, balance, freedom and duty
Heaven’s will, new gate, even know, predominance, you say
Water to arrive at, my talent, What’s up? Try it yet!
Oh why don’t to the end. Excuses, new sense

One Life is communication, acquired, mutilation
“I do not pay attention to believing you whether it is true”
I will not… be even if there is a friend

Leave the scars, ahead of directions of my voice, seek dreams
even though the world that changes keeps us apart
“be even if there is a friend”
I just need you

In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
if life is just like a moment of time
In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
it must not be a permanent, I want to be dreaming

Water to arrive at, the end, poem, I wanna drink it down,
the voice of redemption, to love, even if you died, guilty, your sign
Water to arrive at, to my lord, What’s up? Try it yet!
Why don’t to the end. End in vain.

Our fate! Interchange of soul, congenital, destination
“I do not pay attention to believing you whether it is true”
I will not … be even if there is a friend

Among the memory that hazes, the pain from slight fever, blurring days
Keep circling, if the world, bans days we atone
“be even if there is a friend”
We just believe

In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
In the sky we stare up, pictured the same dream
In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
Your thoughts, I put in intangible sounds
In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
I want to see the future that 15-year-old boy dreams
In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
Even though, you already got re-birthed)

“Still I live!”

Unshaken belief, and quintessence we picture and cleave

Original lyrics

Duty  (歌詞)
Lyrics & Music by Hiroaki Nakashima

In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
「8.11 生まれた命と 旅立った魂が繋がり 俺の中で。」
Sign me “Birth”….or…Sign me “End”…

Water to arrive at 天秤にかける Freedom and duty
天命のnew gate , Even know 優勢 you say
Water to arrive at , 我が取り柄  What’s up ? Try it yet !
Oh Why don’t to the end. 言い分の new sense

One Life is communication 後天性 Mutilation
“I do not pay attention to believing you whether it is true”
I will not … be even if there is a friend

擦り切れた傷痕残し 声向ける先に 夢求めて
変わり続ける世界が僕らを引き裂き離しても
“be even if there is a friend”
君だけが残ればいい

In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
瞬くほどの短すぎる命なら
In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
永遠じゃなくていい 夢を見続けていたい

Water to arrive at 終焉のPoem , I wanna drink it down ,
救世の声 To love , even if you died 有罪 Your sign
Water to arrive at , 我が神へ What’s up ? Try it yet !
Why don’t to the end. 泡と消える

Our fate!! Interchange of soul 先天性 Destination
“I do not pay attention to believing you whether it is true”
I will not … be even if there is a friend

霞んでゆく記憶の狭間で 微熱の痛みが 滲む日々に
巡り続ける 世界が全てに 報う日を閉ざしても
“be even if there is a friend”
僕らはただ 信じている

In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
見上げた空に 同じ夢を描いた
In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
君の想いを 形ない音に込めて
In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
15歳の少年の 描いた未来を見たい
In fact, I am not necessary for believing you
君が既に 生まれ変わっていたとしても・・・

“Still I live !!”

「 決して揺ぎ無い信念と 貫き通した俺たちの描いた真髄 」
