わたあめ わたあめ
頭のなか わたあめ
あまくて ふわふわ
頭のなか わたあめ
wataame wataame
atama no naka wataame
amakute fuwafuwa
atama no naka wataame

Cotton candy, cotton candy
In my head is cotton candy.
It’s so sweet and soft.
In my head is cotton candy.

いっぱい 詰め込まれて ぎゅ ぎゅ
頭のなか あまあま
いっぱい わたあめください
むかしみたいに むかしのぼくらに戻りたい
ippai tsumikomarete gyu gyu
atama no naka wataame
ippai wataame kudasai
mukashi mitai ni mukashi no bokura ni modoritai

Lots is stuffed in. Tight, tight.
In my head is cotton candy.
Please give me lots of cotton candy.
Just like back then. I want us to be like back then.

あっという間になくなる
かなしい わたあめ
ずっと 頭が からっからっから
むかしに むかしに あの頃に戻っておねがい
atto iu ma ni naku naru
kanashii wataame
zutto atama ga karakkarakkara
mukashi ni mukashi ni ano koro ni modotte onegai

It disappeard in a twinkling.
What gloomy cotton candy.
My head remains empty, empty, empty.
To that time. To that time. Please let me return to that time.

もどして
modoshite

Return.

激白

Confession

music: Giga
lyrics/vocals: Reol
album: 事実上 (Jijitsujou)


揺らす本能 火をつけろ
焦燥感にハウる衝動
僕は今すべてを知りたい
yurasu honnou hi o tsukero
shousoukan ni hauru shoudou
boku wa ima subete o shiritai

Set your shaken instinct on fire.
My impatience urges me to howl.
I want to know everything right now.

間違っていても
痛い思いをしても構わないよ
不幸も君とだけ
machigatte ite mo
itai omoi o shitemo kamawanai yo
fukou mo kimi to dake

I might be wrong,
But I don’t care even if it hurts.
If only you are with me in sorrow.

明け方には背いて
だめな遊びをもっと
冷蔵庫の中身が伽藍堂
君の吐くため息が聞きたいのさ
akegata ni wa somuite
dame na asobi o motto
reizouko no nakami ga garandou
kimi no tsuku tameiki ga kikitai no sa

Betrayed by the daybreak,
I want more of this forbidden play.
There’s nothing left in the fridge.
I want to hear your sigh.

互い違う体を 逸る激情が
わかってほしいと
不揃いな脈がもどかしいよ
疑い合う頭も 嘘をつく喉も
今はいらないよ 君が
tagai chigau karada o hayaru gekijou ga
wakatte hoshii to
fuzoroi na myaku ga modokashii yo
utagaiau atama mo uso o tsuku nodo mo
ima wa iranai yo kimi ga

The eager passion we have for each other
Wants to be understood.
That unsteady pulse is irritating.
Our doubting minds and lying throats
Are of no use for you now.

揺らす本能 火をつけろ
焦燥感にハウる衝動
僕は今すべてを知りたい
yurasu honnou hi o tsukero
shousoukan ni hauru shoudou
boku wa ima subete o shiritai

Set your shaken instinct on fire.
My impatience urges me to howl.
I want to know everything right now.

間違っていても
痛い思いをしてもいいと言えよ
不幸も君となら
machigatte ite mo
itai omoi o shitemo ii to ie yo
fukou mo kimi to nara

I might be wrong,
But say it’s fine even if it hurts.
As long as you are with me in sorrow.

早急にひらく瞳孔
今すぐに本当を
確かめるために生き急ぐ
sakkyu ni hiraku doukou
ima sugu ni hontou o
tashikameru tame ni ikiisogu

Your pupils widen immediately.
Live recklessly, so we can check
What is real and what’s not.

変わらないでいてよ
このままでいようよ
確かなのは今だけでしょう
kawaranaide ite yo
kono mama de iyou yo
tashika na no wa ima dake deshou

Do not change.
Let’s just stay like this.
Only this moment is certain after all.

どうやって示したらいい
悩ましいんだ
否応ないがリモートじゃ
お決まりの疲労感さ
dou yatte shimeshitara ii
nayamashiinda
iyaou nai ga rimouto ja
okimari no hiroukan sa

How should I prove it?
It worries me.
This compulsion is a remote
Or the usual fatigue.

ほらこうやって平伏せば
道化になって
全部曖昧にして終わりだ
また君を押し倒した
hora kou yatte hirefuseba
douke ni natte
zenbu aimai ni shite owari da
mata kimi o oshitaoshita

Come on, just prostrate yourself.
Become the clown.
If you play down everything, it’s game-over.
Again, I pushed you down.

澄まし顔で再試行中
つまらない嘘を言うなよ
騙し騙しと気付いてる
今更引き返せないよ
狡い魔法をかけて
汚されたくないのは
お互い様
sumashigao de saishikouchuu
tsumaranai uso o iu na yo
damashi damashi to kizuiteru
imasara hikikaesenai yo
zurui mahou o kakete
yogosaretakunai no wa
otagaisama

You try again with an indifferent expression.
Don’t spout such boring lies.
I’ll know if you try to trick me.
You cannot turn back now.
Neither of us want
To be stained
By these sly spells.

揺らす本能 火をつけろ
焦燥感にハウる衝動
僕は今すべてを知りたい
yurasu honnou hi o tsukero
shousoukan ni hauru shoudou
boku wa ima subete o shiritai

Set your shaken instinct on fire.
My impatience urges me to howl.
I want to know everything right now.

正しくなくても
意味などなくても構うなよ
絶望も君となら
tadashiku nakutemo
imi nado nakutemo kamau na yo
zetsubou mo kimi to nara

Don’t mind it if
It’s unfair or meaningless.
As long as you are with me in despair.

だって誰にわかるの
勝手知った仮想と
君だけに晒す本性 このまま
datte dare ni wakaru no
katte shitta kasou to
kimi dake ni sarasu honshou kono mama

Cuz, who knows
How to deal with imagination,
The true self I expose to only you?

変わらないで言い切って
今 愛しているって
確かなのはここにいる君だけ
kawaranaide iikitte
ima aishite iru tte
tashika na no wa koko ni iru kimi dake

Say you won’t change.
Say that you love me.
Only you being here is certain for me.

激白を君にだけ
gekihaku o kimi ni dake

I confess to only you.

Unbalanced blue || 紫陽花涙

Unbalanced blue

composition: 金閉開羅巧夢/池木紗々 [Kotohira Takumu/Ikeki Sasa]
arrangement: 金閉開羅巧夢/池木紗々/中村かしこ [Kotohira Takumu/Ikeki Sasa/Nakamura Kashiko]
lyrics: 金閉開羅巧夢 [Kotohira Takumu]
vocals: 紫咲ほたる [Murasaki Hotaru]
album: 彩 [Irodori]
circle: 紫陽花涙 [Ajisai Namida]


The vocalist Murasaki Hotaru composes a “framed picture of illusionary tunes” with melodies and pictures. How fleeting yet lovely, the days supposed to be there.


I tried out a more lyrical approach while translating these lyrics to do their beautiful flow justice.
Upon hearing the XFD of this album by accident, I fell in love with the works of Murasaki Hotaru’s circle “Ajisai Namida” and immediately ordered the special set this CD comes with (you can buy it seperately as well of course). It appears to be fairly unknown as of now, but I hope I can help sharing their splendid music with a brighter audience.

きみのみかた

kimi no mikata
Your Ally

music/lyrics: 中田ヤスタカ (Yasutaka Nakata)
vocals: きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ (Kyary Pamyu Pamyu)
album: きみのみかた
artist: きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ (Kyary Pamyu Pamyu)

ALBUM DOWNLOAD LINK [https://kyary.lnk.to/kiminomikata]


Some random facts:
-The MV was shot in one go, which means no cuts etc.
-The “Who is Kimi?” during the part of the song about the trending topic is kind of a play of words; “kimi” means “you”. It kind of ridicules the media for overly interpretating everything.
-The grey marked stanzas in this post were not given in the original lyrics in the description of the MV, since they are simply a repetition of the stanzas sung before.
