歌詞

アナタの奇妙を
認めてあげなくちゃ
少し上からの目線はお互い様ね

暴くというコトバは
少し乱暴で綺麗

冷たい指先の記憶が零れる

それは温もりか
感触だったかなど
覚えてはいない
けれど哀しい気がする

桜の咲くこの場所で
彼女は笑ったけれど…

その温かさはそう
違う誰かのようで
土の匂いがして
ふたり下を見下ろす

真っ白な息は
いつも強がりで
もうこの描写
カタチにしたくない
罪が増えるたび

甘い蜜を吸う時
ひとりじゃつまらない
だから私といる?
そんなわけないよね?

現実には無い香り
アナタは誰なの?
月も知らない場所
夢で終わらせたくない

Romanisation

tsumetai yubisaki no kioku ga koboreru

sore wa nukumori ka
kanshoku datta ka nado
oboete wa inai
keredo kanashii ki ga suru

sakura no saku kono basho de
kanojo wa waratta keredo…

sono atatakasa wa sou

Translation

I just have to
Acknowledge your strangeness.
I guess we both look down on each other a bit, don’t we?

The word “expose”
Feels a bit rough. It’s so pretty…

My memories of your cold fingers escape from me.

Was that warmth?
Did I actually feel it?
I don’t remember
But I feel a bit sad…

Here, where the cherry blossoms bloom,
She smiled. Even so…

Her warmth
Was like that of someone else
And I could smell dirt.
The two of us looked down…

My frozen breaths
Were always just a show of courage.
I don’t want to give shape
To this depiction—this kindness—anymore
Each time I sin.

When I smell that sweet nectar,
I don’t want to be alone. It’s boring.
“Okay then, why not be with me?”
That could never happen, right?

I smell a scent absent from this place, from reality.
Who are you?
I am somewhere unknown to the moon.
I don’t want my dreams to just be dreams.
