LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字) Official English (公式英訳)
待ち合わせは 2時間前で Machiawase wa nijikan mae de We were supposed to meet here two hours ago
此処に独り それが答えでしょ Koko ni hitori sore ga kotae desho And I'm still here alone I know that's the answer, right

街ゆく人 流れる雲 Machi yuku hito nagareru kumo People walking on the street, Flowing clouds
僕のことを嘲笑ってた Boku no koto wo azawaratteta They were laughing at me

それは簡単で とても困難で Sore wa kantan de totemo konnan de It's easy and also difficult
認めることで前に進めるのに Mitomeru koto de mae ni susumeru no ni By accepting it, I can move forward
信じられなくて 信じたくなくて Shinjirarenakute shinjitakunakute But I can not believe it, I don't want to believe it
君の中で きっと僕は 道化師なんでしょ Kimi no naka de kitto boku wa doukeshi nan desho I know I am a pierrot to you

ああ 回って 回って 回り疲れて Aa mawatte mawatte mawari tsukarete Turning around and around and got sick of it
ああ 息が 息が 切れたの Aa iki ga iki ga kireta no Ah, I can't breathe, can not breathe
そう これが 悲しい 僕の末路だ Sou kore ga kanashii boku no matsuro da Yes, this is my sad ending
君に辿り着けないままで Kimi ni tadori tsukenai mama de Still can not reach you

僕を乗せて 地球は回る Boku o nosete chikyuu wa mawaru The earth goes around carrying me
何も知らない 顔して回る Nani mo shiranai kao shite mawaru Pretending to know nothing, it goes around

1秒だけ 呼吸を止めて Ichibyou dake kokyuu o tomete Just for a second I hold my breath
何も言えず 立ちすくむ僕 Nani mo iezu tachisukumu boku and stand saying nothing

それは偶然で そして運命で Sore wa guuzen de soshite unmei de It was an accident and it was fate
知らないほうが良いと知ってたのに Shiranai hou ga ii to shitteta no ni I knew I would have better not to know it
触れてしまったの 君の温もりに Furete shimatta no kimi no nukumori ni I touched your warmth
その笑顔で その仕草で 僕が壊れてしまうから Sono egao de sono shigusa de boku ga kowarete shimau kara By your smile, by your motion I would be broken

ああ 回って 回って 回り疲れて Aa mawatte mawatte mawari tsukarete Turning around and around and got sick of it
ああ 回って 回って 回り疲れて Aa mawatte mawatte mawari tsukarete Turning around and around and got sick of it
ああ 息が 息が 息が止まるの Aa iki ga iki ga iki ga tomaru no Ah, I can't breathe, can not breathe
ああ 息が 息が 息が止まるの Aa iki ga iki ga iki ga tomaru no Ah, I can't breathe, can not breathe

ああ 変わって 変わって 変わってゆくのが Aa kawatte kawatte kawatte yuku no ga Being changed, changed, changed
ああ 怖い 怖いだけなの Aa kowai kowai dake na no Ah, I'm just scared, and scared of it
もうやめた ここで 君を待つのは Mou yameta koko de kimi o matsu no wa I will quit waiting for you here
僕が壊れてしまうだけだ Boku ga kowarete shimau dake da It just makes me broken

ああ 回って 回って 回り疲れて Aa mawatte mawatte mawari tsukarete Turning around and around and got sick of it
ああ 息が 息が 止まるの Aa iki ga iki ga tomaru no Ah, I can't breathe, can not breathe
そう 僕は 君が望むピエロだ Sou boku wa kimi ga nozomu piero da Yes, I'm a pierrot you want
君が思うままに 操ってよ Kimi ga omou mama ni ayatsutte yo Just manipulate me as you want
