Lyrics

Japanese Romanization English
教えましょうか?
その代り誰にも言わない約束してね

指切りげんまん 嘘 ついたら針千本

Oshiemashou ka?
Sono kawari dare ni mo iwanai yakusokushite ne

Yubikiri genman uso tsuitara hari senbon

Shall I tell you?
In exchange, promise me that you won’t tell anyone else

Let’s make a pinky swear on it, and if you lie, may you swallow a thousand needles

折りたたまれたまま 蠢くいている物語を
ひろげてみせてよ 過去も未来も

Super scription of data

Oritatamareta mama ugomeite iru monogatari o
Hirogete misete yo kako mo mirai mo

Super scription of data

Show me that you’ll unfurl the wriggling story
That was still folded up; both the past and future are

Super scription of data

生まれ変わるたびに埋め込まれた
色のついたクリスタル

その七色 すべて 出そろった時

Umarekawaru tabi ni umekomareta
Iro no tsuita kurisutaru

Sono nanairo subete desorotta toki

Every time when I was reborn, I got buried
In a colored crystal

At the moment when all of its seven colors were present

めくるめく輪廻は プリズムの剣で断ち切られて
悲しみのカケラは もうどこにも無い

Super scription of data

Mekurumeku rinne wa purizumu no ken de tachikirarete
Kanashimi no kakera wa mou doko ni mo nai

Super scription of data

The dazzling cycle of rebirth is severed by the prismatic sword
And the pieces of sadness don’t exist anywhere anymore

Super scription of data

あなたが望むから
それはいつだってそこにある

あなたが変えるなら
すべてが変わる
Super scription of data

Anata ga nozomu kara
Sore wa itsu datte soko ni aru

Anata ga kaeru nara
Subete ga kawaru
Super scription of data

Because you wish for it
It’ll be there at anytime

If you change it
Everything will change
Super scription of data

めくるめく輪廻は プリズムの剣で断ち切られて
悲しみのカケラは もうどこにも無い

Super scription of data

Mekurumeku rinne wa purizumu no ken de tachikirarete
Kanashimi no kakera wa mou doko ni mo nai

Super scription of data

The dazzling cycle of rebirth is severed by the prismatic sword
And the pieces of sadness don’t exist anywhere anymore
