歌詞

降りしきる豪雨の中
優しい夢の刻印を 刻みゆく 消えないように

ねぇ…どうして、こんなにも甘く 芳るの?
罪の色 一雫 ポタリ滴る

あぁ…人知れず 咲き誇る 真紅の一輪花
私の胸の奥 震わす
細く白い指 絡み付く 無垢なる微笑で 射抜いた

降り注ぐ光の下
貴女に罪の十字架を 刻みたい 消えないように

ねぇ…どうして、こんなにも深く抉るの?
罪の味 一雫 ポタリ滴る

あぁ…人知れず 咲き誇る 真紅の一輪花
私の胸の奥 狂わす
細く白い首 触れた時 熱を帯びた吐息 ヒトツに

人知れず 狂い咲く 真紅の一輪花
私の奥深く 揺さぶる
甘い甘い夢 罪の味 ポタリと一雫
深い闇へと 混じる

Translation

In the torrential rain,
I carve out a seal of this tender dream, so it won’t fade away.

“Hey… why do you smell so sweet?”
A liquid, the colour of sin, falls drop by drop…

Aah, unknown to all, that deep crimson flower is in full bloom.
The inside of my chest is shaking…
I twined my slender white fingers around, and with an innocent smile, I pierced through you.

Under a downpour of light,
I want to carve the cross of sin onto you, so you won’t fade away… (1)

“Hey… why are you so deeply gouged?”
The flavour of sin falls drop by drop…

Aah, unknown to all, that deep crimson flower is in full bloom.
The inside of my chest is going mad…
When you touched my slender white neck, I let out a feverish sigh. We became one– (2)

Aah, unknown to all, that deep crimson flower blooms out of season.
The inside of my chest is intensely shaking…
A single drop of this sweet, sweet dream, the flavour of sin, drips down.
It mixes in with the deep darkness as it falls.


Translator’s notes

(1) The way 貴女 (anata, you) is written in kanji makes it clear that the one Flandre is talking to is a female.

(2) The original phrase is merely ヒトツに, ‘One…’ Though it is possible to link it to the sigh earlier in the sentence, the emphasis on ‘one’ makes me think that the end of the phrase is cut off (so I interpreted it and added in ‘we become’)

      Hello! I found what appears to be her Twitter account here: https://twitter.com/emink0
      (At least, I think that’s her…)
      She also has a page on Nico Nico (requires an account) where she sings some stuff with her band.

    Hey, great work there! This has been a really popular one for a while, great to finally see a translation. I appreciate your effort.

    Would you mind if I made a subbed video with this translation? I’d be really grateful!! Of course I would also give credit to your for translating it.
