tooku mitsumete wa futo tameiki tsuita
hitori yo ga akeru made hitasura ni
atsui koucha mo itsu kara ka same kitte
sotto tadayou setsunai kaori

itazura ni sugiru shizuka na yoake mo
tonari ni inai no nara nan no imi mo nai

dakishimete sono ude de
yasashiku sasayaite
mado ni utsuru gensou ni kokoro yudanete miru
me o tojite ukabu no wa
itoshii sono egao
itsuwari nai manazashi ni itsuka tokeau hi ga kuru no?
Marionette

hiroi heya ni hitori nokotta ato ni wa
naze ka me no mae ga nijinde mienai

kakushita kokoro no veeru ga yureteru
koyoi mo misukasarete tomadou bakari

ikanaide mou sukoshi
sore sae ieta nara
otonabutta shigusa nado hitsuyou nakatta noni
kinou yori ashita yori
kono toki uketomete
owari no nai meiro demo itsuka tsunagaru hi ga kuru no?
Marionette

itazura ni sugiru shizuka na yoake mo
tonari ni inai no nara nan no imi mo nai

dakishimete sono ude de
yasashiku sasayaite
mado ni utsuru gensou ni kokoro yudanete miru
me o tojite ukabu no wa
itoshii sono egao
itsuwari nai manazashi ni itsuka tokeau hi ga kuru no?

Translation

(just for my love
control of you)

I looked into the distance and sighed.
I’m all alone until dawn breaks.
My hot black tea has been cold for who knows how long.
Its sombre scent gently lingers.

Silent dawn passes mischievously.
If you’re not by my side, it’s meaningless.

Hold me in your arms.
Whisper to me tenderly.
I’ll try to abandon my heart to the illusion in my window.
I close my eyes, and there
I see your beloved face.
When will the day come in which I melt together with your true gaze?
Marionette.

I was left alone in a wide room, and now
the space before me looks blurry and I can’t see for some reason.

The veil before my hidden heart wavers.
Tonight, again, I am seen through and am bewildered.

Don’t go—stay a little longer.
If I could have just said that
I wouldn’t have needed to act like a grown-up.
From yesterday, from tomorrow,
I will stop time.
Though I am in an endless labyrinth, will the day when I’m tied to you come?
Marionette.

Silent dawn passes mischievously.
If you’re not by my side, it’s meaningless.

Hold me in your arms.
Whisper to me tenderly.
I’ll try to abandon my heart to the illusion in my window.
I close my eyes, and there
I see your beloved face.
When will the day come in which I melt together with your true gaze?
Marionette.
