行き詰まる幸せの惨めな分だけ
僕は正しくなる
人が笑うときも僕は紡いたまま
詩人の言葉を忘れない様にしたよ
.
ikizumaru shiawase no mijime na bundake
boku wa tadashiku naru
hito ga warau toki mo boku wa tamuida mama
shijin no kotoba wo wasurenai you ni shita yo
.
I reach the limits of happiness in proportion to my sadness
and become proper
Even as people laugh, I spin yarn
I did it so that I wouldn’t forget the poet’s words
.
僕らの手はネオンライトに
震えた水銀のようでした
さよならも夜に靡けば
なんと世界は美しいのでしょう
.
bokura no te wa NEON RAITO ni
furueta suigin no you deshita
sayonara mo yoru ni nabikeba
nanto sekai wa utsukushii no deshou
.
Our hands trembled
in a neon light, they were like mercury
 +1
If ‘goodbye’ yields to the night
the world is such a beautiful place, isn’t it?
.
閉め切る熱の底で加速して行くのは
ココロだけでしょうか
僕は白い雲に浮かんでみるんだ
シグナスならきっとダバオの蝶に成るわ
.
shimekiru netsu no soko de kasoku shite yuku no wa
KOKORO dake deshou ka
boku wa shiroi kumo ni ukande mirun da
SHIGUNASU nara kitto DABAO no chou ni naru wa
.
This thing accelerating off in feverish, closed-up depths
is just my heart, right?
I try floating up to the white clouds
If it’s Cygnus, then surely I’ll become a Davao butterfly +2
.
だから僕は憧れだけで
晴れた空 虹についてゆくの
擦切れた君の気配に
僕は青さに悲しみが立つ
.
dakara boku wa akogare dake de
hareta sora   niji ni tsuite yuku no
surikireta kimi no kehai ni
boku wa aosa ni kanashimi ga tatsu
.
And so, just by my longing,
in the clear sky a rainbow links me
with a sign of you worn out
and so I find myself in the blues
.
やや在る事だよと花瓶に映った
薬指に触れて
yaya aru koto da yo to kabin ni utsutta
kusuriyubi ni furete
It’s a small thing, a vase appeared +3
touching your ring finger 

 

Original notes from translation by madametarantula:

+1: In Argon-based neon lights (the blue ones), mercury is required to make the light bright. A small amount of it rolls around reacting to the gas and causing it to produce more light than normal.
+2: Davao is a city in the Philippines with a butterfly house.
+3: Possibly a reference to Aquarius.
