ANOTHER WORLD

Lyrics, Written, Sung by: Gackt Camui

Translated by: Mina-P (Email: Minako@senshigakuen.com)

Version 1.00


Note: From Gackt's ninth single, Another World (almost double digits~!), and his third album, MOON. Let me tell you, I HATE when I can't translate things well. The very first thing I noticed about the song wasn't the bubble-gum rock sound, the happy melody amongst very Gackt-esque guitar, or the over-all super fun sound, but the amazing rhyme in the lyrics. It creates this incredible simple and fun, yet complex rhythm that carries the entire song. Everything just moves so fast, like you're speeding along for a joyride in a convertible through the desert ala Thelma and Louise. It just flies along, pausing towards the end only momentarily to acknowledge the quiet hope and friendship that such a wild time stems from. @_@ Anyway, I tried to capture a similar rhythm in the words for my translation, but well, it was kinda hard. ;^_^ So bear with me; I tried my best.


yaburisuterareta Magazine     yogorenaki tamashii

eiga no you na One Scene     anata nara anshin

A trashed out Magazine     An untarnished spirit

A movie-like One Scene     If it's you I'm okay


"yosomi shinai de..." anata to futari de

ima kono sekai e sayonara o tsugete

yukeru nara doko made mo tooku e

"Don't you ever look away..." It's just the two of us

Say goodbye to the whole wide world

We're heading off as far away as we can


dare yori mo tooku e

yume nara samenai de

kono sora no mukou e

"you can see the another world"

Farther than anyone else

If it's a dream then don't wake up

If you turn towards the sky

"you can see the another world"


machinami wa Mossgreen     kizutsuita tamashii

kudakechiru Taxi     anata wa utsukushii

Along the street it's Mossgreen     A wounded spirit

A smashed up Taxi     You're beautiful


kotoba o kawashite

"nakanai de Darling..."

itoshii itami ni yasashiku dakarete

yukeru nara doko made mo tooku e

Exchange a few words

"Don't cry Darling..."

Held gently by our dearest pains

We're heading off as far away as we can


yasashii kao o shite

anata wa nakanai de

waratta kao o misete

"you don't need another words"

Looking at you tenderly

You won't cry

Let me see you smile

"you don't need another words"


tatoe donna ni kizutsuite mo

anata ga soba ni ita kara

No matter how much we hurt each other

All 'cause you were by my side


dare yori mo tooku e

yume nara samenai de

kono sora no mukou e

"watashi o dakishimete..."

Farther than anyone else

If it's a dream then don't wake up

If you turn towards the sky

"Hold me tight..."


yasashii kao o shite

anata wa nakanai de

sayonara wa iwanaide

"you don't need another words"

"you can see another world"

Looking at you tenderly

You won't cry

Don't say goodbye

"you don't need another words"

"you can see another world"

Not like the words make any sense if you haven't heard the song, anyway. Romanized and translated into English very badly by Mina-P, with desperately needed help, as always, by Mako-chan.
