BackgroundEdit

"Mermaid" is based loosely on the classic Little Mermaid fairytale.

The original fairytale is about a young mermaid who is a wonderful singer, who wanted to see the sky and meet humans. The song depicts how the mermaid falls in love with a boy who loves the magical stories in books. He wanted nothing more than to meet one of the creatures and followed what was said in the books to eventually discover the mermaid. The boy declared his love for her, but the mermaid knew that he "loved" her only because she was a mermaid and he would have loved any other mermaid.

His love wasn't love—it was purely fascination.

The lyrics are very melancholy, as is the tune.

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
火山が噴火して Kazan ga funka shite
絵の具があふれて enogu ga afurete
青は海になって ao wa umi ni natte
赤は♥(ハート)になって aka wa haato ni natte

ちっぽけな世界は chippokena sekai wa
ねじをまいたら neji o maitara
ぐらぐら動き出した! guragura ugokidashita!

絵本を閉じて ehon o tojite
街を飛び出す machi o tobidasu
何か起こるかもしれない? nanika okoru kamo shirenai?

惑、惑星が飛び出す waku, wakusei ga tobidasu
心はうきうき浮かぶ kokoro wa ukiuki ukabu
少年はきっと海を目指してる shounen wa kitto umi o mezashi teru
ぐらぐら揺れる気持ちは guragura yureru kimochi wa
どうすることも出来ずに dousuru koto mo dekizu ni
ただただ 魅了されている! tadatada miryou sarete iru!

金、木星の甘い色  kin, musei no amai iro
遠い景色を染めてく tooi keshiki o someteku

惑、惑星が飛び出す waku, wakusei ga tobidasu
心は浮き浮き沈む kokoro wa ukiuki shizumu
おとぎ話の続きを教えて otogibanashi no tsuzuki o oshiete
君はまだそこにいるの? kimi wa mada soko ni iru no?
黒い海で泣いてるの? kuroi umi de naiteru no?
本当の顔が見たくて hontou no kao ga mitakute

最後のページを閉じたら saigo no peeji o tojitara
たたたた 街を飛びだす tatatata machi o tobidasu
何も起こらないことは知ってる nani mo okoranai koto wa shitteru
何かを追いかけている nani ka o oikakete iru
何故だか追いかけている naze daka oikakete iru
ただただ 魅了されている! tadatada miryou sarete iru!
