Context:

彼女を、守ってあげてね? 昔のわたし、救ってあげてね?
あなたは、治せる人を治してあげてね。わたしの傷はもう…あなたには専門外だから

Problem sentence:

そう…あなただけには、もう癒すことができないんだから

Who can't be healed anymore, the person talking or the person it is being said to?

  • Looks strange because of the には, so I'm not sure what's the object here. But if it helps, this is the transitive version of heal (癒やす) while your older question was about the intransitive heal (癒える) – siikamiika Apr 29 '17 at 20:02
  • This sentence comes from a completely different context though. And thanks XD – 天照天照 Apr 29 '17 at 20:07
  • Anyways, the previous sentences were 彼女を、守ってあげてね? 昔のわたし、救ってあげてね? and あなたは、治せる人を治してあげてね。わたしの傷はもう…あなたには専門外だから. After that comes そう…あなただけには、もう癒すことができないんだから – 天照天照 Apr 29 '17 at 20:12

With the help of the previous sentence you gave, I think it means that あなた cannot heal the wounds of わたし anymore.

In the previous sentence, わたし is talking about (her?) wounds. The wounds carry over to the next sentence, are the object of the transitive verb 癒す. The subject is あなた, but that was clear from the sentence in question.

  • Yes, that is what I got from the context as well. Thanks XD How would you translate the sentence then? – 天照天照 Apr 29 '17 at 20:36
  • literally something like "That's right... only to you, (my wounds) are already unhealable" – siikamiika Apr 29 '17 at 20:42
  • She's telling him to go heal people who he can heal. Her wounds are already out of his "area of expertise". No idea about のわたし – siikamiika Apr 29 '17 at 20:55
  • oh, she had previously said that the new girl was just like her a few years ago, that's why. Last request (to make sure I understood well everything). How would you translate あなたは、治せる人を治してあげてね。わたしの傷はもう…あなたには専門外だから – 天照天照 Apr 29 '17 at 20:59
  • It's already in the previous comment loosely, but "You, go heal people who you can heal. My wounds are already... out of your area of expertise." – siikamiika Apr 29 '17 at 21:01
