歌詞

冷たい空気
漂う部屋に
一人の憂鬱

過去を示す歌と
見飽きた影色
わがままに混ぜて
嘲笑う

何のために 佇むの
その 喜び 悲しみ 苦しみ
すべて 受け入れる覚悟を持って
ただ 知りたいだけ ただ

蒼い貴石で
出来たファルファーラ
希望を宿った

約束の言葉が
煙のように
闇に吸い込まれ
消えてゆく

一瞬だけ 一秒でも
いますぐ君と出会いたいから
お願い この呪文で縛らないで
手を伸ばしたまま 夜空へと

震えるこの指先 もう一度
触れてみたい

この凍てついた蓮と
傷つけた翅を
届けない 声 まだ 届けられない

そう 記憶に残っていたその
温もり 温もり
結界まで追いつけてく

夢 覚めないで 覚めぬように
いますぐ君と出会いたいからお願い
ねぇ 君が信じない君を
信じていいか?
いいでしょう?!

何度もこの夢を救い出す

Translation

In a room
cloaked in cold air,
I feel melancholy alone.

A song depicting the past
and a landscape I’m tired of—
I mix them together wilfully
and sneer.

Why do I stand here?
I have the resolve to accept everything,
all that joy, sorrow, and suffering.
I just want to know. That’s all.

In a farfalla (1)
made from blue gems,
despair dwelled. (2)

The promised words
are like smoke.
Swallowed into the darkness,
they begin to vanish.

For just a moment, even for a second,
I want to see you right away
so please, don’t tie me down with this spell.
Keeping my hands outstretched, I head to the night sky.

My fingertips are trembling. Once more,
I want to try and touch you.

I won’t deliver
this frozen lotus
and wounded feather. I can’t send my voice to you still.

Yes—in my memories remained
your warmth. Your warmth.
I’m going to draw level with the barrier.

Don’t wake me from this dream. So I’ll stay dreaming,
I want to see you right away so please—
is it okay for me to believe in a version of yourself
you don’t believe?
It’s fine, isn’t it?!

I will rescue this dream time and time again.


Translator’s notes

(1) ファルファーラ (farufaara) likely refers to the Italian word for butterfly.

(2) 希望 (kibou, hope) is written, but 絶望 (zetsubou, despair) is sung.
