SNoW – Sakasama no chou [Jigoku Shoujo OP]; SNoW – 逆さまの蝶 [地獄少女 OP]

This one’s a personal favourite of ours, translated from the liner notes scanned by Nipponsei. You can find the track there.

SNoW – 逆さまの蝶 [地獄少女 OP]

いつか光に向かう 逆さまの蝶
君と髪を切る 鏡の中
授業中の廊下 響く足音
絶えず雨の音がついてくるよ

感じるままの形は眩しい
甘い花になる 毒の実にもなる
今日も雨 あの日と今を
空と空でつなぎたいの

In this Craziness, Uncertainty
一人一人の思いを僕らはどこかに残せるだろうか
In this Craziness, You gave me life
ひとつの思いを僕らはどこまで守れるだろうか

君は覚えているの 逆さまの蝶
メールのやりとりは とりとめもない
流されていても 泳げればいい
絶えず人の声は波のように

信じるままに 伝えるメロディ
優しいリズム 泣き出しそうになる
いつも雨 今が未来へとつづく
そう思いたいよ

In this Craziness, Uncertainty
一人一人の形を僕らはどこかに残せるだろうか
In this Craziness, You gave me life
それぞれの形を 僕らはどこまで守れるだろうか

言葉になりたがらない気持ちがあります
人がいくら手を伸ばしても
人の中に届かない場所がある
声にならない一人一人の思いが好きだから
何かにならなくてもいつの日でもかわらず

In this Craziness, Uncertainty
一人一人の思いを僕らはどこかに残せるだろうか
In this Craziness, You gave me life
ひとつの思いを僕らはどこまで守れるだろうか
In this Craziness, Uncertainty
一人一人の形を僕らはどこかに残せるだろうか
In this Craziness, You gave me life
それぞれの形を 僕らはどこまで守れるだろうか

In this Craziness, Uncertainty 一人一人のあこがれ
In this Craziness, You gave me life ひとつの輝き
In this Craziness, Uncertainty 一人一人のときめき
In this Craziness, You gave me life ひとつの感動
In this Craziness, Uncertainty 一人一人のまなざし
In this Craziness, You gave me life ひとつの偶然
In this Craziness, Uncertainty 一人一人のぬくもり
In this Craziness, You gave me life ひとつの約束

SNoW – Inverted Butterfly [Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl) OP]

A backwards butterfly that will someday face the light
I cut my hair with you, in the mirror
In class, footsteps echo from the corridor
The sound of constant rain drums on

The shapes I can feel are so dazzling
They become a sweet flower, a poisonous fruit
It’s raining today, too; I want to join
That day and now, from sky to sky

In this craziness, uncertainty
Can we save, somewhere, each and every feeling?
In this craziness, you gave me life
How long can we protect a single thought?

The inverted butterfly that you remember
The exchange of mail an incoherent rambling
I’m floating but I’d rather be swimming
The incessant voices of people are like waves

I’ll tell you about a melody I still believe in
The gentle rhythm makes me want to cry
It’s raining, always; I’d like to think
That the present continues on, into the future

In this craziness, uncertainty
Can we save, somewhere, each and every shape?
In this craziness, you gave me life
How long can we protect all these shapes and forms?

There are emotions I don’t want to find the words for
No matter how you reach out your hand
There are places inside people you can never reach
Because I love each and every soundless thought
Unchanging even if nothing comes of them, ever

In this craziness, uncertainty
Can we save, somewhere, each and every feeling?
In this craziness, you gave me life
How long can we protect a single thought?
In this craziness, uncertainty
Can we save, somewhere, each and every shape?
In this craziness, you gave me life
How long can we protect all these shapes and forms?

In this craziness, uncertainty – each and every yearning
In this craziness, you gave me life – a single glow
In this craziness, uncertainty – each and every excitement
In this craziness, you gave me life – a single touching feeling
In this craziness, uncertainty – each and every look
In this craziness, you gave me life – a single coincidence
In this craziness, uncertainty – each and every feeling of warmth
In this craziness, you gave me life – a single promise
