Japanese Romaji English
描いた未来 叶えたい願い egaita mirai kanaetai negai I defined the future, of the wish I want to grant
手にしたい想い 憧れのキミ te ni shitai omoi akogare no kimi I think of taking it into my hands, for you I adore
現実は笑止 求めた癒し genjitsu wa shoushi motometa iyashi With reality so contemptible, I sought healing
憂いばかり 眠れない urei bakari nemurenai Full of sadness, I’m unable to sleep

気付いたら 夜が明けてた kizuitara yo ga aketeta If I had realized it, the night would have ended
見上げれば 鮮やか過ぎる空 miagereba azayakasugiru sora and raising my eyes, I would’ve seen a blindingly clear sky

迅速に 実直に ただ手を伸ばし(迷ってた) jinsoku ni jicchoku ni tada te o nobashi (mayotteta) Swiftly, steadily, simply extending my hand (I had lost my way)
つかみ so easy なのにやらない(揺らいでた) tsukami so easy na noni yaranai (yuraideta) Even though grasping it is so easy, I won’t do it (I had been trembling)
卑し下し へりくだりだり(惑わせた) iyashi kurushi herikudari dari (madowaseta) grounding myself into the dirt, over and over (I was lead astray)
閉ざし黙り(ゆえに) tozashi damari (yueni) Shutting up, closing down (so therefore)
デキナイ詐欺(デキナイ詐欺) dekinai sagi (dekinai sagi) 'I can't do it' scam ('I can't do it' scam)

望みの返事 導く為に nozomi no henji michibiku tame ni To discover that wish’s answer
少々不埒 出来過ぎたキミ shoushou furachi dekisugita kimi I salted myself with dereliction; for you are too good to be true
ふさわしくない だとか言い出し fusawashikunai datoka iidashi No, that’s not right, I began to say
何を怖がり 逃げ腰 nani o kowagari nigegoshi Afraid of something, I prepared to run away

微笑みが 消え失せた hohoemi ga kieuseta All smiles died out
堪えてた 涙がこぼれた kotaeteta namida ga koboreta and the tears that had withstood it fell from my face

払拭し 狡猾に 上手く立ち回り(迷わせた) fusshokushi koukatsu ni umaku tachimawari (mayowaseta) With a clean slate, slyly, skillfully I press on (it made me lose my way)
順調に you made it なのにため息(夢見てた) junchou ni you made it na noni tameiki (yumemiteta) Although you made it just fine, out still came a sigh (I had dreamed of it)
過小に評価し 先へと延ばし(間に合うなら) kashou ni hyoukashi saki eto nobashi (maniau nara) I valued it too low, and reach out towards the hereafter (if it’s enough...)
苦い笑い(みそぎ) nigai warai (misogi) with a bitter smile (the ceremony...)
デキナイ詐欺(デキナイ詐欺) dekinai sagi (dekinai sagi) 'I can't do it' scam ('I can't do it' scam)

偽り 欺き 告げられないまま itsuwari azamuki tsuge rarenai mama The lies, the deception, yet I still cannot tell you...

気付いたら 日が暮れてた kizuitara hi ga kureteta If I had realized it, the day would have grown dark
時がただ 過ぎていた toki ga tada sugite ita time had simply passed by
隠せてた そう思っていた kakuseteta sou omotte ita I had been able to hide it, or so I had thought
自ら ジシンを欺き続けていました mizukara jishin o azamuki tsuzukete imashita I had continued to deceive my own self for my own self confidence

水がさらり 流れてくように(さらり) mizu ga sarari nagareteku youni (sarari) Like water, so smoothly flowing (so smoothly)
欲がじわり 身体を支配(じわり) yoku ga jiwari karada o shihai (jiwari) Greed permeates and rules the body (it permeates)
絶好の機会に 巡り会い会い(巡り会い) zekkou no kikai ni meguriai ai (meguriai) What a fortuitous chance this is, this is (so fortuitous)
せっかくの衝動 抑えるのやめて(叶うなら) sekkaku no shoudou osaeru no yamete (kanau nara) Holding back all these long-awaited urges ends now (should you wish for it)

迅速に 実直に ただ手を伸ばし(演じてた) jinsoku ni jicchoku ni tada te o nobashi (enjiteta) Swiftly, steadily, simply extending my hand (I had messed up)
つかみ don't worry もう離さない(ばれていた) tsukami don't worry mou hanasanai (barete ita) I grab hold. Don’t worry, I won’t let go anymore (it had been exposed)
期待よそに 弄ぶように(意地でした) kitai yoso ni moteasobu youni (iji deshita) Despite what you thought, as if I was toying with you (it was obstinance)
もったいぶってました できちゃうのに できないフリ(なんて強がり) mottaibutte mashita dekichau noni dekinai furi (nante tsuyogari) I had feigned pretension. Although I could do it, I made as though I couldn’t (some bluff that was)
デキナイ詐欺(デキナイ詐欺) dekinai sagi (dekinai sagi) 'I can't do it' scam ('I can't do it' scam)

描いた未来 描けない未来 egaita mirai egakenai mirai I have defined the future; I cannot define the future
叶えたい願い 叶わない願い kanaetai negai kanawanai negai I want to grant your wish; I will not grant your wish
ただ手を伸ばし まだ届かない tada te o nobashi mada todokanai Simply extending my hand; I still can’t reach
(苦い)つかみ (笑い)so easy (nigai) tsukami (warai) so easy (With a bitter) Holding on, (smile) is so easy
(I'm sorry,)don't worry, (I'm sorry...)don't worry...
