Marionette

Gou Hiromi

Romaji by Cheryl Gravela

Romaji

Namida nante yametoke yo
Sayonara wa wakatteta
Tobira wo shimeta nara futari wakareyou
Ano taxi tobinotte
Kono machi ni te wo fureba
Omae goto subete wo wasureteku to omotta

Hatto shita shunkan ni omae no suhada omoidasu
Love? Iya ... Sonna wake nai sa  
Odoru shinapusu jigoro

Dore dake dore dake daitemo 
So far away fuseki no distance
Sou guruguru guruguru mawaru kotae wa   
Itsumo jigoro
Makkura na makkura na tenjou kara
Kojireta akai ito hodokare mata musubare
Love is like a marionette

Shanpan no awa mitai ni hanasaki wo kusugutte
Ijiwaru na kurai ni kuchibiru nurashita
Sameta fuu na manazashi de
Todome no namida nante
Kikkake ga dou demo wasureru koto dekinai

Hyotto shite keisanzumi ?
Omae no kotoba no uragawa
Doubt iya ... Sonna wake nai sa 
Itoshii kuse ni jigoro

Don’t cry mou don’t cry nakanaide 
Teisai no ii kimari monku
Sou buruburu buruburu koi ni obieta  
Boku wa jigoro
Makkura na makkura na tenjou kara
Ame no ito ni tsurare  nijimu hoo wo kakushita
Love is like a marionette

Hakanaki hakanaki koi moyou 
Ningyougeki no kaatenkooru
Sou guruguru guruguru rinne no you ni 
Nazeka jigoro
Makkura na makkura na tenjou kara ayatsuri ayatsurare
Omae ni ganjigarame love is like a marionette

English

Don’t cry
We knew goodbye was coming
Once we’ve closed the door, let’s part
Once I get in that taxi
And wave goodbye to this town
I’ll forget all about you…or so I thought

Suddenly I find myself remembering your skin
Love…no, it can’t have been that
Dancing synapses, gigolo

No matter how much, how much we embrace
So far away, a strategic distance
Yeah, the answer going round and round
Is always “gigolo”
Threads of fate dangling from the dark, dark ceiling
Come untied and are tied again
Love is like a marionette

You tickled my nose like champagne bubbles
And wet your lips in a way that was just cruel
Your cool eyes
And fatal tears
Nothing could make me forget that

Was this calculated?
Behind your words
Was there doubt? …no, there couldn’t have been
I love you but I’m your gigolo

Don’t cry anymore, don’t cry, don’t cry
A nice-sounding set phrase
Yeah, I was so scared of love I was shaking and shaking
I’m your gigolo
Threads of rain dangling from the dark, dark ceiling
Dangling from them, I hid my tearful face
Love is like a marionette

A fleeting, fleeting pattern of love
The curtain call for our puppet show
Yeah, going round and round like transmigration
Why am I your gigolo?
You’re up in the dark, dark ceiling, pulling, pulling my strings
I’m tied up in you, love is like a marionette
