ミドリ – 愛のうた

愛について騙された あいつに騙された
手のひら返して、さあ。天国へ連れてって

ai ni tsuite damasareta aitsu ni damasareta
te no hira kaeshite, saa. tengoku e tsuretette

I’ve been lied about love, I’ve been deceived by it
Turn the palm of your hand over, come on: I’ll lead the way towards Heaven

真実を黙ってた 信じたって黙ってた
手の鳴るその方へ、さあ。あの子の涙かわいてく

shinjitsu o damatteta shinjita tte damatteta
te no naru sono hou e, saa. ano ko no namida kawaite ku

I’ve been silent about truth, I’ve been quiet over the fact I trusted you
Come here, towards the clap sound you’re hearing; come and wipe off that girl’s tears

愛について騙された あいつに騙された
手のひら返して、さあ。手首を切っても、はじまらない

ai ni tsuite damasareta aitsu ni damasareta
te no hira kaeshite, saa. tekubi o kittemo hajimaranai

I’ve been lied about love, I’ve been deceived by him
Turn the palm of your hand over, come on: nothing will ever start, not even if I’d slit your wrist

真実を黙ってた 信じたって黙ってた
手の鳴るその方へ、さあ。今、見た、現状どこへとさあ

shinjitsu o damatteta shinjita tte damatteta
te no naru sono hou e, saa. ima, mita, genjou doko e to saa

I’ve been silent about truth, I’ve been quiet over the fact I trusted you
Come on, over the clap sound you’re hearing; How’s my actual state you looked at gonna change?

愛について騙された。愛について騙された。
愛のうた歌ってよ 愛してる。って、もう一度言って

ai ni tsuite damasareta. ai ni tsuite damasareta.
ai no uta utatte yo aishiteru. tte mou ichido itte

I’ve been lied about love. I’ve been lied about love.
And I’m singing this love song ― I love you, will you say it once more?

愛について騙された あいつに騙された
愛のうた歌って、さあ。天国へ連れてって

ai ni tsuite damasareta aitsu ni damasareta
ai no uta utatte, saa. tengoku e tsurete tte

I’ve been lied about love, I’ve been deceived by him
Sing this love song, come on: I’ll take you to Heaven with me

Notes:

– Second stanza: 手の鳴るその方へ (te no naru sono hou e) is a sentence kids say while playing “kakurenbo” (hide and seek). A blinfolded catcher (oni) attempts to catch the other kids who clap their hands and says this sentence, which translates to “come towards the sound of our hands!”. Keeping this image in mind, I’ve made my own decontextualized translation.

About foregroundnoises

I love music more than everything; I'm also a (shamefully mediocre) bass player and wannabe composer / writer (only in my dreams). Also interested in astronomy, traveling, theatre, literature, poetry, art, movies, mostly everything from Japan and other stuff. I'm also okay with anime stuff as long as I don't have to deal with weeaboos. Touhou project? Love it! Gaki no Tsukai? Love it! Foreground Eclipse? Of course I love them! I'm an university student, I study japanese since years for unknown reasons and I managed to get a degree on japanese language & culture (currently 進学中). I'm italian, but I can (almost) perfectly understand english.
