I think "stopped" would be best since that's what she actually said in her lyrics (止められ), so it'll be up to whoever's reading to interpret it as soothing/calming the anger of the world, you know?

I sort of would rather like to have translations that pretty much say exactly what Ayu's trying to tell us so that what she's saying doesn't get lost/mixed up in the process of translating.
Fair enough! I don't know why I didn't stop (lulz /dodges bricks) to consider the strength/force/impact of 止められ as opposed to 和らげる -- toss that up to me being forgetful, I guess!

I prefer as close to the original phrasing/words as possible as well, and I think masa does a great job of making them flow nicely from Japanese into English and still having them be poetic I guess I'm just letting my flowery synonym side take over x_x Apologies!

Since it's a WORLD song, I definitely think it suits the news show. And she did make this in london right? because credits show the London Strings was involved. Strange coincidence with A WORLD IS ONE? or after? hahaha...

i've yet to hear the song but the lyrics, reading them again, are so beautiful

blue star <3

I love this.
Totally see what she's talking about now, especially referring to the Earth as a "blue star". Kudos Ayu~

"Blue star" might be an inaccurate translation. In japanese aoi "blue" can also mean "pale".
Just a thought though, don't take my word for it.

I changed the line arrangement, according to the official lyrics.
And I noticed that "hoshi" is written as "地球" (Earth) in the official lyrics. So I changed the word, "star" to "Earth" in my translation.

I thought this was another love song but it's like the songs on I am... to me. o.O I thought she sings something how breaking up can hurt you but this song really reminds me of the songs on I am... and rollin' as well. I like the lyrics. <3

It's curious how both Ayu and KOKIA used in their latest albums hoshi implying Earth... so different music but the same origin, Japan!
Thank you for the translation! - a very beautiful lyric btw...

I don't like how it feels like I've heard the first couple verses before a hundred times.
