Romaji by SnakeRoot

Romaji

Anata wo omou dake de
Nazeka namida ga afuredasu
Itsu kara konna ni
Yowamushi ni natta no darou?

Kanjou no suicchi ga
Hairippanashi ni natte iru
Hajimete ushinaitakunai hito ni
Aeta ano hi no yoru

"Suki" ja nakute "aishiteru"
Haato wa dokidoki honki
Junjou na sanagi kara hane made haeta
"Suki" ja nakute "aishiteru"
Anata no amai mitsu made
Tobenai agehachou

Anata no soba ni iru to
Fushigi kimochi ga ochitsuku no
Kotoba wa iranai
Watashi no kokoro ga hiraku

Honnou to idenshi ga
Me no mae no michi wo tsukuru
Itsuka wa dokoka de meguriaeru to shitta
Ikiru riyuu

"Koi" ja naku "ai" na no yo
Dareka ni ubawaretakunai no
Taisetsu na hito dakara dokusen shitai shi
"Koi" ja naku "ai" na no yo
Otona no hane wo hirogeru
Watashi wa agehachou

Hanabira atsumaru
Kirei na onnanokotachi
Kafun wo hakonde
Yume wa eien no mitsu

"Suki" ja nakute "aishiteru"
Haato wa dokidoki honki
Junjou na sanagi kara hane made haeta
"Suki" ja nakute "aishiteru"
Anata no amai mitsu made
Tobenai agehachou

"Koi" ja naku "ai" na no yo
Dareka ni ubawaretakunai no
Taisetsu na hito dakara dokusen shitai shi
"Koi" ja naku "ai" na no yo
Otona no hane wo hirogeru
Watashi wa agehachou

Agehachou...

English

For some reason, just thinking about you
Makes me burst into tears
When did I become
Such a wimp?

My feelings
Are still switched on
That night, for the first time
I met someone I don’t want to lose

I don’t “like” you, I “love” you
My heart is pounding for real
This naive chrysalis has grown wings
I don’t “like” you, I “love” you
I’m a swallowtail butterfly that can’t fly
To your sweet nectar

When I’m by your side
It’s strange, but I feel relaxed
We don’t need words
My heart just opens

My instincts and genes
Are making a road before my eyes
I knew we’d meet somewhere someday
It’s the reason I’m alive

It’s not “lust”, it’s “love”
I don’t want someone else to take you away
I want you all to myself because you’re important to me
It’s not “lust”, it’s “love”
I spread my adult wings
I’m a swallowtail butterfly

Where all the flower petals are
Pretty girls
Carry pollen
My dream is nectar far away

I don’t “like” you, I “love” you
My heart is pounding for real
This naive chrysalis has grown wings
I don’t “like” you, I “love” you
I’m a swallowtail butterfly that can’t fly
To your sweet nectar

It’s not “lust”, it’s “love”
I don’t want someone else to take you away
I want you all to myself because you’re important to me
It’s not “lust”, it’s “love”
I spread my adult wings
I’m a swallowtail butterfly
