It seems like Seija is messing around with someone who’s also messing around with her…

These lyrics seem to be accurate, though I have a feeling that they’re not the official lyrics.


歌詞

can you いつもそうだった
can you 話だけど
can you 信じられずに
can you ついに捨てられ

わかったなんて嘘を言って
期待するなんて

ほめられると泣きたいの
そんなことを言わないで
どうせならば嫌がって
そんな筈じゃないの
嬉しがるの違うの
そんな顔を見せないで
どうせ上辺だけだって
そんなふうに思わせて
好きにさせて

can you? これでいいのと
can you? 自分に聞いたけど
can you? だってこれこそ
can you? まさに喜び

ちょっとたまに不安になる
分からなくなって

離されると泣きたいの
そんなことを言わないで
どうせムカムカするなんて
そんな筈じゃないの
笑われるの違うの
そんな顔を見せないで
どうせ一緒に抜けだって
そんなふうに思いたいの
好きにさせて

少しだけど迷った
殻脱ぎ捨て変わると
でも変わらない汚い
こんな私だから.

ほめられると泣きたいの
そんなことを言わないで
どうせならば嫌がって
そんな筈じゃないの
嬉しがるの違うの
そんな顔を見せないで
どうせ上辺だけだって
そんなふうに思わせて
好きにさせて

Translation

(Can you?) It was always the same.
(Can you?) I spoke,
(Can you?) But nobody believed me
(Can you?) And they threw my stories away.

I tell lies, like “I know”
And end up holding hope…

When you praise me, I want to cry
So don’t say those sorts of things to me!
You seem to hate me
But it’s not meant to be that way!
You seem happy. Am I wrong?
Don’t look at me like that.
I’m just superficial,
Or at least I’ll make you think I am.
Do what you want!

I sometimes get a bit uneasy
And then I don’t know anymore…

When we’re parted, I want to cry.
Don’t say such things to me!
Anyway, I feel sick
But it’s not meant to be this way!
Am I being laughed at? Am I wrong?
Don’t look at me like that
Anyway, I just want to think
That we can run away.
Do what you want!

I’m just a little lost
Because, though I shed my skin and try to change,
I don’t. I’m still dirty.
That’s just who I am…

When you praise me, I want to cry
So don’t say those sorts of things to me!
You seem to hate me
But it’s not meant to be that way!
You seem happy. Am I wrong?
Don’t look at me like that.
I’m just superficial,
Or at least I’ll make you think I am.
Do what you want!
