Bubblegum Crisis Song Translation



This is something a bit obscure, but I think it's a very fitting song for the times. Besides, I've just finally been able to find out what a lot of the songs on my old BGC Best Vocal Collection CD actually mean, so you get the results!



Bara no Soldier (Rose Soldier)
Bubblegum Crisis Ep. 5 Insert Song
Sung by: Tsubokura Yuiko
Lyrics/Composition/Arrangement: Makaino Kouji
Singable translation: Maureen S. O'Brien, 4/22/04
(After Takayama Miyuki at animelyrics.com)

Stabbing through the still there comes a sudden cry
Out of the earth's quiet greenness.
Something's blocking up that road as black as night --
With dazzling light plainly seen.
Look at you, angel, on the ground. Did something make your wings break?
Here and now keep living for tomorrow's sake.


CH1:
So-oldier, fighting to kill the wrong --
In your heart, the red roses will be --
So-oldier, this is the way of love
Until you can take up victory.

Here within your hands, there lies the future's key.
Truth fights for you -- the Resistance.
What sets spirits trembling in the di-istance --
The power of bravery.
Even blood flowing can be proof that you are really alive,
If you fight for those you love, so they'll survive.


CH2:
So-oldier, question of life or death --
In your heart the red roses will be --
So-oldier, meaning of life for you --
Until you can take up victory.


BRIDGE:
Joy of life, joy of living --
The birds that fly in the sky, and the flowers --
This is what we swore in our hearts,
This is what we swore in our hearts:
We would not keep silent and let it pass!


CH1:
So-oldier, fighting to kill the wrong --
In your heart, the red roses will be --
So-oldier, this is the way of love
Until you can take up victory.
