歌詞

ハロー、ハロー
曖昧だって届きますように

さっきの夢を忘れるから泣いてる暇はない
記憶が涙に変われば失くさないのにな

ここはどこ きみはだれ
奥底がぼやけてゆく
めくるめく日々の中
外側だけ溶け残る

「嘘を吐くとき目を逸らす癖が相変わらず」だと
無意識に繋ぎ止めている私のかけら

ハロー、ハロー
零れないようにずっと抱きしめるよ
ハロー、ハロー
曖昧だって届きますように

答えは隠れてしまった 早く出ておいで
点と点を結んでいく また会えるように

降り出した雨はまだ
止まないからここにいて
何もかも歪むのは
窓に映った君のせい

不揃いな眩暈の中で秘密の話をしよう
そしてまた一つ失くしてる そんな気分さ

ハロー、ハロー
未だ見ぬ答えよ ずっと探している
ハロー、ハロー
そろそろ答えて ここで待ってるよ

教えて
私の形をずっとわからないの
それでも
失くした自分も今は愛せるよ

ハロー、ハロー
零れないようにずっと抱きしめるよ
ハロー、ハロー
曖昧だって届きますように

ハロー、ハロー

Translation

Hello, hello.
It’s hard to hear but I hope it reaches you.

I’ll forget the dream I just had so there’s no time to cry
though if my memories turned to tears, I wouldn’t lose them.

Where am I, and who are you?
The depths grow dim.
During these dazzling days
everything but the exterior dissolves.

“You look away when you lie, like always.”
I unconsciously clutch pieces of myself.

Hello, hello.
I’ll hold them forever so they won’t spill.
Hello, hello.
It’s hard to hear but I hope it reaches you.

The answer was hidden. Hurry up and get out here!
I join the dots so we can meet again.

It started raining.
It hasn’t stopped yet so stay here.
Everything looks twisted
because you’re reflected in the mirror.

Let’s tell secrets while suffering irregular vertigo.
Like that, I’ll lose another. That’s how it feels.

Hello, hello.
I’m always searching for an answer I haven’t seen yet.
Hello, hello.
Answer me soon. I’m waiting here.

Tell me,
I’ll never know what I really look like
and yet,
I can love the self I’ve lost.

Hello, hello.
I’ll hold them forever so they won’t spill.
Hello, hello.
It’s hard to hear but I hope it reaches you.

Hello, hello.

      1. Thanks! I had a bit of a chemistry lesson reading that too. I originally thought of it like… it dissolves (and remains behind in the liquid), but reading that has changed my mind. I’ve updated my translation so hopefully it reflects that a bit better now!

  1. thank you for translating it ❤ and thank the guy who boost it too :D, I didnt expect it would finished so soon ❤
    this song is kinda "me, myself and I", i think, but i guess “You look away when you lie, like always.” sound like satori said to koishi.
    I wonder if you have some idea what would this "they" mean? I feel it's a bit off since i dont get it "I’ll hold them forever so they won’t spill."

    1. You’re welcome! My thoughts on ‘they’ – I think it’s referring to the speaker’s memories. These are mentioned in the second stanza and compared to teardrops. The speaker might be holding their tears/memories in so they won’t forget about them.
