So, I was looking at the English version of the Zero song in Fatal Frame IV and I was wondering if anyone knew how accurate that version of the song is the original Japanese version.  I know that it was translated by Amano herself, or at least someone at Tecmo/Nintendo as she sings it in English, but from past experiences I've noticed that English versions of Japanese songs don't really stick close to the original lyrics much.


So, does anyone know what an English translation of the Japanese lyrics would be if they exist?

I found a translated version here http://fatalframe.wi...houritsu_(song)

the japanese version is different than than the english version but the in the end it creates the same image like in this part

"Can I become your hope?
So what should I do?

For how much daylight do I have to wait?"  

"How many more nights must I spin
Before I can become the light that illuminates you?"

(IDK if that made sense) 

usually they end up changing the lyrics after being translated so that it will fit to the song better.

Is that wiki trustworthy though?  I know they got a good amount of their articles from the BCL Zero wiki and just pasted them onto there so I don't know how reliable they'd be for accuracy.


Their translation for Kurenai seems a little bit random to me and their version of Noise is missing the first verse.
