Hatsune Miku – Karakuri PIERO | Lyrics Translation

Song: Karakuri PIERO
Artist: 40mp feat. Hatsune Miku
Album: Chiisana Jibun to Ookina Sekai

machiawase ha nijikan mae de
koko ni hitori sore ga kotoae desho

For our date, I’ve been waiting
here for over two hours…the answer is clear right?

machiyuku hito nagareru kumo
boku no koto wo azawaratteta

The people coming and going, the flowing clouds,
they all sneered at me.

sore ha kantan de totemo konan de
mitomeru koto de mae ni susumeru noni
shinjirarenakute shinjitakunakute
kimi no naka de kitto boku ha doukeshi nandesho

I just simply…rather difficultly
have to accept it and move on…
But I couldn’t believe…didn’t want to believe it…
surely, to you I’m just a clown right?

mawatte mawatte mawaritsukarete
iki ga iki ga kireta no
sou kore ga kanashii boku no matsuro da
kimi ni tadoritsukenai mama de

Circles, circles, I got tired of going in circles,
I’m already out of breath.
Yes, it is my sad fate…
to never make it to where you are…

boku wo nosete chikyuu ha mawaru
nani mo shiranai kao shite mawaru

The world turns with me on board,
it turns without a care in the world.

ichibyou dake kokyuu wo tomete
nani mo iezu tachisukumu boku

I strop breathing for a single second,
and without saying anything, I just stood there.

sore ha guuzen de soshite unmei de
shiranai hou ga ii to shitteta noni
fureteshimatta no kimi no nukumori ni
sono egao de sono shigusa de
boku ga kowareteshimau kara

It was coincidentally…and fatefully
that I knew it would be better if I didn’t know you.
Because I was touched by your warmth,
and that smile and gesture of yours
will break me apart.

mawatte mawatte mawatte mawaritsukarete
mawatte mawatte mawatte mawaritsukarete
iki ga iki ga iki ga iki ga tomaru no
iki ga iki ga iki ga iki ga tomaru no

Circles, circles, circles, I got tired of going in circles,
Circles, circles, circles, I got tired of going in circles,
Running, running, running, I’m running out of breath.
Running, running, running, I’m running out of breath.

kawatte kawatte kawatte yuku no ga
kowai kowai dake nano
mou yameta koko de kimi wo matsu no ha
boku ga kowarete shimau dake da

Change, change, change, I’m simply
scared, terrified, of change.
I gave up on waiting for you,
waiting will only break me apart.

mawatte mawatte mawaritsukarete
iki ga iki ga tomaru no
sou boku ha kimi ga nozomu PIERO da
kimi ga omou mama ni ayatsutte yo

Circles, circles, circles I got tired of going in circles,
Running, I’m running out of breath…
Yes, I’m the clown you so wish for…
so manipulate me to your heart’s content.
