Translation: Justice For True Love (The Alfee)

As I've been neglecting my song translations, it naturally follows that I've been neglecting my personal crusade to translate all the Alfee songs ever. Well, here's the third track from the örb album, the magnificently titled "Justice For True Love."

This song was the theme to the second Kindaichi Case Files movie, Satsuriku no Deep Blue. I have no idea what the movie is about, but I hope it has something to do with the chess-playing computer, or else I'm sure the references to programs and memory make no sense at all.

(Within the context of the album I find it pretty clever, as it provides something of a bridge between the neurotic techno-fear of the first two songs, to the sweeter love themes of the rest of the album.)

It looks like no one has the song on YouTube. But if you really want to hear it, you can check out this link to the last part of the movie itself. Scroll down to around 4:20, and you can hear an abridged version play over the credits. Of course, the credits also contain spoilers, if you don't watch the movie itself. Whee!

Song Title: Justice For True Love
Artist: The Alfee
Album: örb

guuzen ano hi futari ha deai
monogatari ha hajimatta
tooi kako ni yakusoku sareta
ai to iu Program


One day, two strangers met by chance
And so, our legend began
Following a Program written long ago
That goes by the name of love

dakedo kitai to fuan no naka
kimi wo osou genjitsu
risou ha kudakare yume ha kietemo
sono te dake ha hanasanaide


But through all your many hopes and fears
The realities still break through
Though ideals may be shattered, your dreams disappear
Just please, keep holding on

kiseki ha okoru jiyuu na yoru ni
michi wo terashidase REJISUTANSU
yozora hikaru hoshi ga majiwari
asahi wo michibiku yo


A miracle will occur on an unfettered night,
The Resistance will light the road ahead!
The night sky will shine, and shooting stars
Pave the way for the rising sun

kimi no me ni utsuru mirai wo
sono te ni tsukamu tame ni
kono ai no subete wo kakete
mamoritai kimi no asu wo


To help you find the future you seek
And take it in your hands
I will put all my love at stake
I want to protect your tomorrow

Justice For True Love
kimi dake no tame ni


Justice For True Love
I do this all for you

kimi ha kagami ni utsuru kage ni
hontou no sugata wo sagasu
dakedo kakaekirenai MEMORII
sutesaru yuuki mo nai


You stare at your reflection in the mirror
And search for your true self
But you still lack the courage to throw away
That unwanted excess Memory

dakara tashika na mono mitsuketai
kono yo ni tatta hitotsu no
moeru natsu mo fubuki no yoru mo
yorisoeru RIARU na ai wo


That's why I want to find something sure
Something unique within this world
That remains true through summer and snowy nights
A Real love I can give my whole self to

kiseki ha jikan no mahou no naka
totsuzen ai no nazo ga tokeru
mitsumeatte fureau toki
yasuragi michibiku yo


In the magic of a moment, a miracle
Will unravel the mysteries of love
For as our eyes meet, and we touch
It paves the way to serenity

kimi no me ni utsuru mirai wo
sono te ni tsukamu tame ni
kono ai no subete wo kakete
kanaetai kimi no yume wo


To help you find the future you seek
And take it in your hands
I will put all my love at stake
I want to make your dreams come true

Justice for true love
kimi dake no tame ni


Justice for true love
I do this all for you

yakusoku sareta koibitotachi
yasuraka na nemuri no naka de
itsumo negaitsudzuketeru no ha
mezameta asa kimi ga iru koto


As all the destined lovers of history,
Dreaming their peaceful dreams
Have just one wish, so too do I--
That when I wake in the morning, you'll be with me

ikutsumo no hoshi ga nagarete
kazoekirenai yume mo kie
kono te ni nokosareta mono ga
kakegaenonai shinjitsu


I've seen many stars drift across the sky
And I've seen countless dreams fail
So that which still remains to me
Is truth incontrovertable

ai no na ni kakete chikau

I swear this on the name of love!

kimi no me ni utsuru mirai wo
sono te ni tsukamu tame ni
kono ai no subete wo kakete
mamoritai kimi no asu wo


To help you find the future you seek
And take it in your hands
I will put all my love at stake
I want to protect your tomorrow

Justice for true love
kimi dake no tame ni


Justice for true love
I do this all for you
