I still love U lyrics

Next on my list of favorites from Perfume on is this one. I think this song (and the accompanying PV and performance) is superb – the voices are full of longing while the music is fun and retro-sounding. A retro midtempo techno ballad? Yes please!

As always, I am simply someone trying to learn Japanese by translating and is by no means an expert, so if you see any mistakes anywhere let me know! Japanese, romaji, and English lyrics under the cut.

Japanese

キミをどんなに想い続けても
あたしにできることなんかなくて
夕焼けみたいに沈む気持ちを
胸にしまいこむ

それがどんなに意味のないことで
一つも変わることがなくても
一緒に笑い合える関係
それを守りたい

願うなら さよなら と 笑えるより
寂しいねって いってくれるよな そんなふたりがいい

※I still love U 抜け出せない 迷路のよう 見えないドア
I can smile 隠してるの この気持ち 涙に変えて
You and me どうしようもない それはきっと あたし自身
rescue me なんていえない 目を閉じて 眠りにつく

あまり連絡がこないときでも
あたしにできることなんかなくて
曇り空みたいなこの気持ちを
胸にしまいこむ

震えた気がして電話を見て
気のせいだとがっかりしたりもして
次はいつになるとあえるかな
思い続ける

願うなら じゃあまたね って手を振るより
寂しいねって いってくれるよな そんなふたりがいい

Romaji

Kimi wo donna ni omoi tsuzuketemo
Atashi ni dekiru koto nanka nakute
Yuuyake midai ni shizumu kimochi wo
Mune ni shimai komu

Sore ga donna ni imi no nai koto de
Hitotsu mo kawaru koto ga nakute mo
Isshouni warai aeru kankei
Sore wo mamori tai

Negau nara sayonara to waraeru yori
Sabishii nete ittekureru yona sonna futari ga ii

※ I still love U muke nasenai meiro no you mienai DOA
I can smile kakushi teru no kono kimochi namida ni kaete
You and me doushiyou mo nai sore wa kitto atashi jishin
Rescue me nante ienai me wo toji de nemuri ni tsuku

Amari renraku ga konai to kidemo
Atashi ni dekiru koto nanka nakute
Kumori sora itai na kono kimochi wo
Mune ni shimai komu

Furueta ki ga shite denwa wo mitte
Ki no sei dato gakkari shitairi moshite
Tsugu wa itsuni naru to aerukana
Omoi tsuzukeru

Negau nara jyaa mata ne ne te wo furu yori
Sabishii nette ittekureru yo na sonna futari ga ii

English

What kind of thoughts did you have
I can do without thinking about it
I just want to sink into the sunset
Store these thoughts inside my chest

It doesn’t have any meaning but
Still nothing has to change
Always smiling together as one
I want to protect that

As for my wish, smiling is better than goodbyes
I’m lonely when you leave, it’s better when it’s the two of us

※I still love U   Don’t slip away A maze with invisible doors
I can smile   Holding back changes these feelings into tears
You and me   Can’t be helped, I’m always by myself
rescue me  I can’t just shut my eyes and fall asleep

There’s not much contact between us
I can do without thinking about it
It feels like there’s a cloudy sky
Store these thoughts inside my chest

My heart trembles when I look at the phone
It’s just my imagination and I feel disappointed
Next time I’m strange it’ll be because
My feelings will continue

As for my wish, well see you later and wave goodbye
I’m lonely when you leave, it’s better when it’s the two of us
