Ryu ga Gotoku: Yubi no Yukue

Lyrics: Ryosuke Horii
Composition: Hideki Sakamoto

指の行方

思い出のグラス欠け
指先に血が滲む
流し込むワインでも
何故か酔えなくて

愛しかった横顔も
嘘みたいに冴えないわ
一人でも辛くない
ただの強がりね

私の頬撫でた
あなたの指は
今頃 誰の体
なぞる

どれだけ涙を流せば
どれだけ自分を騙せば
どれだけ他人(ひと)に抱かれれば
私は忘れる

どれだけ時間を戻せば
どれだけ嘘で固めれば
どれだけあなたを想えば
一緒に居られるのよ
お願い言って

Yubi no Yukue

omoide no glass kake
yubisaki ni chi ga nijimu
nagashikomu wine de mo
naze ka yoenakute

itoshikatta yokogao mo
uso mitai ni saenai wa
hitori de mo tsurakunai
tada no tsuyogari ne

watashi no hoho nadeta
anata no yubi wa
imagoro dare no karada
nazoru

dore dake namida wo nagaseba
dore dake jibun wo damaseba
dore dake hito ni dakarereba
watashi wa wasureru

dore dake jikan wo modoseba
dore dake uso de katamereba
dore dake anata wo omoeba
issho ni irareru no yo
onegai itte

Where is Your Touch?

there's a chip in our old glass
blood blossoms on my fingertip
for some reason the wine I drink
isn't getting me drunk

your profile that was once so dear
is unbelievably unattractive now
"it's not hard to be alone"
I'm just putting on a front

those fingers with which
you used to caress my cheek:
whose body are they tracing
these days?

how many tears do I have to shed?
how much do I have to fool myself?
how many arms must I be held in
so that I can forget you?

how far do I have to turn back the clock?
how large a web of lies must I spin?
how much do I have to care about you
so that we can be together?
please, tell me
