By request, here’s Armin’s lyrics as high res as I could make them. I’m terrible with photo and the text was tiny, but hopefully it’s readable. If not, let me know what needs clearing up, I got you.

Here’s the lyrics in romaji and furigana for Armin’s character song - Far Away:


Aoi shibafu ni hirogeta no wa

Bokura no osanai yume

Katariau hodo tsubasa ga hae

Doko made datte tondeku


Are kara ikutsu kisetsu nagare

Sukoshi otona ni natte

Genjitsu wo shiri utsumuki gachi

Sora ga tōku naru


Soredemo far away bokura wa mada toberu

Tatoe sukui mienai toki demo

So far away kanarazu tsurete kuru

Kasuka dakedo daiji na hikari


Ano koro bokura no yume ga tonda mitai ni

Mouichido


Boku no yowasa wo mamotta no mo

Tsuyosa wo oshieta no mo

kimi dakara koso nigezu ni iyou

Taitou de iru tame


Konna sekai no naka yorisotte


Soredemo far away bokura wa mada toberu

Ikiru kagiri jiyuu motomete

So far away yami ga fusagu yoru mo

Asu ni tsuzuku michi wo miseru yo


Ano koro bokura no yume ga tonda mitai ni


Ano hi miteta sora wa doko made mo tsuzuitete

Tori no you tobitatsu hi wo

Yume ni miteta sore wa ima datte kawaranai

Haruka kanata made


Soredemo far away bokura wa mada toberu

Tatoe sukui mienai toki demo

So far away kanarazu tsurete kuru

Kasuka dakedo daiji na hikari


Kimi to nara

Mouichido

My thoughts on Armin's song

When I heard the preview for Armin’s song, I was screaming too much to properly hear and catch onto the beat of the instrumentals of the song. And since I was saving myself for the full song, thus didn’t hear it again until now, while I waited I came to think that the song would have too much going in in the background to compliment his voice. I’d still love anything by my son, but I was worried I’d be let down. I had insanely high hopes at any rate, so I was expecting to be at least a little underwhelmed… But when I hit play, hands shaking and heart racing, the instrumental opening instantly spoke to my soul. “Armin” it said. Yes, this is absolutely the sound of the dreamy, hopeful side of Armin’s soul. There’s more to him than this, but this is the precious core of our angelic boy. And the music perfectly painted that picture before me. When he started singing, I knew this was exactly how I’d hoped it would be. It must have been hard for Marina to maintain Armin’s slightly darker voice as she sang - go on, try for yourself to sing in a feigned voice and still do it believable AND pleasant sounding. So although it got a little lighter than I’d hoped, I still definitely feel like she incorporated Armin. After all, she said she imagined Armin thinking of Eren in his heart as he sang, so we know she was in character.

It’s hard to pick a favorite part of the song, it really is, but I’d like to point out that I particularly enjoyed the momentary halt in sound before the first explosion of “soredemo FAR AWAY”; I’m a sucker for that kind of trick. Hits me right in the feels.

I prayed for a song with healing powers, and I certainly got one. Now all I need is for a saint to translate the lyrics and I’ll be one happy dude up here on cloud nine (overseeing the ocean). Now excuse me while I go replay this track for a few hours…
