Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Japanese Romaji English
透明な世界はいらない Toumei na sekai wa iranai I don't need a transparent world
白と黒のコタエはいらない Shiro to kuro no kotae wa iranai I don't need a black and white answer
愛の歌 (いた)み抱えながら Ai no uta itami kakaenagara While bearing a painful wound
曖昧に歌い続けた Aimai ni utai tsuzuketa I continue to ambiguously sing a song of love

舞い落ちる君の(はね) Maiochiru kimi no hane I hugged your wings that flutter down
抱きしめては眠った Dakishimete wa nemutta And I fell asleep

完璧な世界はいらない Kanpeki na sekai wa iranai I don't need a perfect world
目覚めない夢なんていらない Mezamenai yume nante iranai I don't need a dream where I won't wake up
(けが)れては 心迷う君と Kegarete wa kokoro mayou kimi to When you're dirty, your heart loses its way
はしゃいで からまっていたい Hashaide karamatte itai I want to have fun and be entwined with you

見上げる四角い空 Miageru shikakui sora I look up at the square-shaped sky
飛び立つ君に手を振る Tobitatsu kimi ni te o furu I wave to you as you fly away

変わらないもの 変わりゆくもの Kawaranai mono kawari yuku mono Things that don't change, things that do
花から花へ すりぬけてゆこう Hana kara hana e surinukete yukou I glide through from flower to flower
光の中で (はね)をゆらして Hikari no naka de hane o yurashite I flap my wings in the light
儚く奏で さまよう I'm Butterfly Hakanaku kanade samayou I'm Butterfly And as I wander I play a fleeting tune I'm Butterfly

このまま風にのり 追いつけない夜空まで Kono mama kaze ni nori oitsukenai yozora made Riding the wind like this as far as the unreachable night sky
星をよけ 滲んだ月へと far away Hoshi o yoke nijinda tsuki e to far away Dodging the stars towards the fuzzy moon far away
映して Utsushite I cast

変わらないもの 変わりゆくもの Kawaranai mono kawari yuku mono Things that don't change, things that do
花から花へ すりぬけてゆこう Hana kara hana e surinukete yukou I slip through from flower to flower
光の中で (はね)をゆらして Hikari no naka de hane o yurashite I flap my wings in the light
儚く奏で どこまでもゆこう Hakanaku kanade dokomade mo yukou I'll go forever, playing a fleeting tune

限りあるもの 忘れゆくもの Kagiri aru mono wasure yuku mono Things that are possible, things that slip from our minds
「消えないで」 明日も願うよ "Kienaide" asu mo negau yo Tomorrow I'll wish again, "Don't disappear"
貴方のそばで 羽根を落とす日まで Anata no soba de hane o otosu hi made Until the day I drop my wings beside you
儚く歌い 飛ぶの I'm Butterfly Hakanaku utai tobu no I'm Butterfly I'll sing my fleeting song as I fly I'm Butterfly
