Japanese Rōmaji Translation


情熱の紅 愛して止まない君はもう

No one wants the present

指を差して さよなら 額に向けられた冷たい銃口に愛を





Lover, tenderness, freedom and peace

Kareki ni mizu o…doromizu ni utsuru kimi wa mō…
Yume yo kibō yo ōzora ni egaita risō

Jōnetsu no aka Aishite yamanai kimi wa mō…
Ame yori amai risō wa tada no risō

No one wants the present

Yubi o sashite Sayonara Hitai ni mukerareta tsumetai jūkō ni ai o
Akai kōto no konoko mo oshitsukerareta ima o dakikakae namida o nomikomu

Naze? Naze? Kurikaesareru

Nido to ienai

Naze? Naze? Kurikaesareru

Kareta kokoro ni…

Love, tenderness, freedom and peace

Here is some water for the dead tree…I see your reflection in the dirty water…
Dreams and aspirations Your ideals in the big sky

Passionate red The one I loved so much…
Ideals being sweeter then candy are just ideals

No one wants the present

Point your finger Goodbye I feel love on my for head at gunpoint
Even the child with the red coat swallows her tears as she faces reality

Why? Why? Over and Over

It will never heal

Why? Why? Over and Over

My dead heart…

Love, tenderness, freedom and peace

  • Although the album booklet comes with an official English translation by Emi Yamada, the translation above was taken from 「我葬の詩」下巻, as it's the same translation, except for two small changes:
    • In the first line, the word "reflections" was changed to "reflection".
    • In the seventh line, the word "hers" was changed to "her".
