See below for translation notes!

So, you must be asking why I'm translating this song when there's already a translation out there (specifically this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFDV3y... )

It's because I've always been EXTREMELY irritated by the translation done for my favorite song of all time (well, kind of), so I felt like there was some sort of "injustice" towards the song to have such a bad translation. Case in point: that translation—along with translations of other songs across the web—are translated by dorks who don't even speak Japanese. I'm sick of it, so this is my first video that I've translated from Japanese to English, though I seem to be lagging by a few years, considering that this song came out years ago... orz

------------------------
Translation Notes: This song is a bit difficult to translate because it's not very clear who's singing about what. It becomes a real problem when you try to put "I," "him," or other pronouns when they aren't actually specified in the original song. So the next best thing is to just guess.

Also, a note about the part where Rin is singing about the umbrella. She's trying to imply to whoever she's speaking to that she doesn't literally want an umbrella from him, but rather that she wants to simply be next to him (specifically, under a cramped umbrella. OH, THE ROMANCE!)

If you have any suggestions or requests to translate any songs—Vocaloid, Touhou or otherwise—then shoot me a message with the title of the song.

English Lyrics:
It's reversed, this rainbow
While you're riding on top of it
It's stubborn, this melody
It's fun, it's sad
(x2)

Even if you line up your excuses, it'll only be erased by this rust
If you're going to stack them, rather than words use melody and harmony
A cloud that grows crooked, as though it's sneering
I will travel beyond them

It's reversed, this rainbow
While you're riding on top of it
It's stubborn, this melody
It's happy, it's lonely

If you're the one that's able to easily change the sound of rain to raindrops
Then it seems as though all of this blue could change to yellow
I tried arranging these seven colors nonsensically
But wait... is something not right?

The thing that I want
It isn't an umbrella... Don't you understand yet?

It's reversed, this rainbow
While you're riding on top of it
It's stubborn, this melody
It's lovesick, it's heartbreaking

It's reversed, this rainbow
While you're riding on top of it
It's stubborn, this melody
It's happy, it's lonely

It's reversed, this rainbow

It's stubborn, this melody

It's fun
It's sad
It's happy
It's lovesick
