Todokanai Ai to Shitteiru no ni Osaekirezuni Aishitsuzuketa...

Even though I know that my love will never reach you, I continue to love you uncontrollably...

Sung by: Gackt
Translated by: Mina-P
Version 1.00

Note: I used to think that Porno Graffitti's song Shiawase ni Tsuite Honki Dashite Kangaete Mita would always win the award for "Longest Title at the Senshi Gakuen", but lo and behold, the title of Gackt's latest single blows this record out of the water. On the plus side, just translating the title finishes half of the chorus, so you feel like you're doing less work this way. (lol) This song was the main theme for a mid-day drama in 2005.

amai yume no you na kimi to sugoshita hibi wo
ushinau koto nante nai to omotteita keredo...

The days I spent with you were like a sweet dream
I thought that I would never lose them, but...


"kimi no hitomi ni utsutteiru no ha boku ja nai n da ne"
utsumuku kimi ni nani mo ienakute

"I'm not the one reflected in your eyes"
Hanging my head low, I couldn't say anything to you


todokanai ai to shitteiru no ni
osaekirezu ni aishitsuzuketa
mou ichido kono ude de dakishimetai
kimi wo zutto hanasanai kara

Even though I know that my love will never reach you
I continue to love you uncontrollably
I want to hold you in my arms one more
And never let you go again


sukoshi terenagara yasashiku boku ni fureta
komorebi ni yureru kimi ha hitonatsu no kagerou

You touched me gently, just a little shy
In the wavering light between the trees, you are no more than the ephemeral summer heat


kimi ga nokoshita nukumori ga ima mo mune wo shimetsukeru
mou modorenai to sou iikikasete...

Even now I hold onto the warmth that you left behind in my heart
Even though they warn me that the warmth will never return...


todokanai ai to shitteiru no ni
osaekirezu ni aishitsuzuketa
mou ichido kono basho de deaeru nara
nido to kimi wo hanasanai kara

Even though I know that my love will never reach you
I continue to love you uncontrollably
If I could only meet you here once more
I wouldn't let you go again


sono hohoemi wo kesshite wasurenai
koe ga kareru made kimi no na wo sakebitsuzuketa...

I'll never forget your smile
I kept calling out your name until my voice ran dry...


todokanai ai to shitteiru no ni
osaekirezu ni aishitsuzuketa
mou ichido kono ude de dakishimetai
kimi wo zutto hanasanai kara

Even though I know that my love will never reach you
I continue to love you uncontrollably
I want to hold you in my arms one more
And never let you go


kimi wo zutto hanasanai kara

I will never let you go



Lyrics belong to Gackt C. and Crown Record, taken from the Todokanai Ai to Shitteiru no ni Osaekirezuni Aishitsuzuketa... single, CRCP-10115 (track 1). 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. Any comments or corrections can be mailed to Mina-P.
