GREETINGS FROM THE FUTURE!!! (from the Land of the Rising Sun!) Finally getting this up just in time for the next Shuffle release soon~ Sorry this is so late; I've had it translated for a while now, I've just been without [free] internet access for the last week or so. Plus I've been trekking all across Japan from sun-up to sundown, and I still can't move my legs properly, so I've been crashing the second I get back to the hotel. Having tons of fun, though, so it's worth it~

So, my notes on this one: as expected, Camus and Ren are a duet made in heaven! They have similar vocal timbres and styles, so they blended together wonderfully~ I also really appreciate the use of HARMONY in this song! Like, most of the other UtaPri songs focus on just a melodic line for all voices in question, which sounds nice but lacks a good deal of potential for musical color, at least in my opinion. (Can you tell I just completed a music theory and notation class last semester~) But this duet really, really used harmony between the two voices for full effect. And it sounds FANTASTIC!!! </music-nerd-rant>

As for the lyrics themselves (plus translation)...This may just be me, but I'm getting a slightly SM feel from these. Also, I still have yet to see what strawberries and guns have anything to do with each other at all. Also, every time they sing "Splash Love," I keep hearing "Special Love," which seems closer that the actual to the rest of the context, but hey. I do enjoy the reference to the Butterfly Effect, though~ (For those of you who don't know, the "butterfly effect" or "Chaos Theory" refers to the notion that a series of seemingly unrelated single events build one on top of another until something big, often chaotic, occurs. Classic example from which the first term is derived is the stir in air currents from a butterfly flapping its wings on, say, the African west coast gradually builds and turns into a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico.) Some other points on the translation itself:
- In the second refrain (the one beginning with "Don't Lie! My Cinderella!"), the translations for the lyrics didn't exactly flow smoothly for me, so I apologize in advance for that. I don't get the use of the phrase about sharpening all 5 senses, considering at the end of the stanza, they use the opposite English "Lazy."
- I took the opportunity presented to reference Crime and Punishment (not that I've ever read it, but it was too good to pass up!)
- I don't care if that's what the original lyrics say, "Guns" is NOT a verb! (still, I left if alone)

That's all from me! Hopefully I can get "Still, Still, Still" up sooner after it comes out on the ninth~

Romanji:
ai no PARADOKKUSU himotoku youni
Hold On! DORESU o haide
kimi no fukaku MASUTĀKĪ de
michi o hirakou doko made mo sā hora Let’s Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

aa SADISUTIKKU ni kuchibiru o ubaiaeba ii

Baby! My Strawberry!

Translation:
If you want to unravel this paradox of love,
Hold on! Strip away all reason like a dress
With the master key you hold,
Unlock the way, wherever it may go! Now, come on, let’s bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

Ah, as long as I sadistically fight for your lips,
In a “butterfly effect,” by their rouge, now my world is changing! Can you feel it!?

Baby! My strawberry!
Holding you so tight, so tight, it seems like you’ll soon break…
My shame disintegrates as I transform into a beast!
Crushed like a flower petal underfoot,
My entire being is enslaved to you!
Beyond the pain, drive me! Dar-ling!! Splash love!!!


From behind the window pane fogged up by a mellow sigh,
Keep out! From behind love’s closed doors
With claws bared even within my heart,
Suffering, smiling, crime and punishment! Hey, once more, let’s guns! Guns! Guns! Guns!

Ah, if I ever want another identity to color my appearance,
Cast aside that heart's reason like a dress! An act of impulse or complete honesty, do you know which this is!?

Don’t lie! My Cinderella!
Shaking and swaying back and forth, it seems like you’ll soon break…
Without blaming this loneliness, until the bitter end, asking each other
Sharpening all 5 of my senses
Drowning in love to my very core
I confess this cra-zy! La-zy!! Ecstasy love!!!

Baby! My strawberry!
Holding you so tight, so tight, it seems like you’ll soon break…
My shame disintegrates as I transform into a beast!
Crushed like a flower petal underfoot,
My entire being is enslaved to you!
Beyond the pain, drive me! Dar-ling!! Splash love!!!

Baby! My strawberry!

I was afraid your blog was shut down! Livejournal has been having some weird bugs and your blog was one of the fews that didn't quite load... Happy to see/read you again!

In my opinion, this duet was one that HAD to be done sooner or later, Camus and Ren are similar on both appearance and voice. They just had to sing together.

Anyway, Happy New Year! And thanks for the lyrics x3

Thankfully, that's not the case! I've just been busy touring Japan and internet-less in the process. Happy New Year!!

Thank you for this! I've been waiting for your entry about this song *grinning*
Btw, i think it's "hone no zui made ai ni oborete" not "bone no zui made ai ni oborete"

I'm falling when they saying "sā hora Let’s Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!" XD

Arigatou!!

heya, happy new year~ (so late w)
keep up the good work as always~ i'll be always here to lurk.

couldn't access here yesterday, LJ's fault. orz
thanks for this! really like this song, ended up practising non-stop. after all this is my dream conbi after natsuki & tokiya~
and don't worry, it's not just you when it comes to the S&M feels. actually i got a lot of them feels since the lyrics are so...oh me.

so like, i wonder about [bone no zui made] since you posted but i had no time. i kept hearing Ren pronounce it as hone. i believe both is acceptable for 骨 but yeah, need clarification? XD

Thanks everyone who pointed out the error in the Romanji! It's been fixed. In my defense, I think I may have been half-asleep when I finally got a break from sightseeing to work on this, but I can't really remember what went on in my brain at the time anyways. ^^;
