Ryu ga Gotoku: Rouge of Love

Composition: Chihiro Aoki

Rouge of Love

そう安物よ
プラスチック製の脆い女
フェイクで着飾った
コスメティック頼りのベビーフェィス

「男も恋も過去も
ちり紙のように捨ててやる」
怯えてる唇を
紅いルージュで隠した

欲のネオンに
汚れていくMy heart
養殖魚のように
闇を泳ぐわ

似合いはじめた
はりぼての衣装
衣擦れた肌に
染みるRouge of Love

そう安売りよ
ドラマティックでムーディーな台詞
無垢で純粋な
あの頃にはもう戻れないの

溢れる涙さえも
売り物にするこの街で
道標見失い
安いタバコをふかした

ルージュの毒に
染まりゆくMy heart
蝶のように舞い
蜂のように刺さる

お願い早く
ラクにさせてよ
解毒剤替わりの
愛をください

欲のネオンに
汚れていくMy heart
養殖魚のように
闇を泳ぐわ

似合いはじめた
はりぼての衣装
衣擦れの肌は
淡い紅色

お願い早く
ラクにさせてよ
涙も毒に
染めるRouge of Love

Rouge of Love

sou yasumono yo
plastic sei no moroi onna
fake de kikazatta
cosmetic dayori no baby face

"otoko mo koi mo kako mo
chirigami no you ni sutete yaru"
obieteru kuchibiru wo
akai rouge de kakushita

yoku no neon ni
yogorete iku my heart
youshokugyo no you ni
yami wo oyogu wa

niai hajimeta
haribote no ishou
kinuzureta hada ni
shimiru rouge of love

sou yasuuri yo
dramatic de moody na serifu
muku de junsui na
ano koro ni wa mou modorenai no

afureru namida sae mo
urimono ni suru kono machi de
michishirube miushinai
yasui tabako wo fukashita

rouge no doku ni
somari yuku my heart
chou no you ni mai
hachi no you ni sasaru

onegai hayaku
raku ni sasete yo
gedokuzai gawari no
ai wo kudasai

yoku no neon ni
yogorete iku my heart
youshokugyo no you ni
yami wo oyogu wa

niai hajimeta
haribote no ishou
kinuzure no hada wa
awai beni-iro

onegai hayaku
raku ni sasete yo
namida mo doku ni
someru rouge of love

Rouge of Love

that's right, I'm cheap
a fragile woman made of plastic
with a baby face
faked with cosmetics

"I'll throw men, love and the past
away like a tissue"
I conceal my trembling lips
behind crimson lipstick

the neon of desire
corrupts my heart
I swim through the darkness
like a farm-raised fish

my for-show outfit
is starting to suit me
it rustles against my skin
as the rouge of love seeps in

that's right, I come cheap
a dramatic and moody line
I can't go back to that time
when I was pure and innocent

in this town
where even my falling tears are a commodity
I've lost my way
I smoke a cheap cigarette

the rouge's poison
seeps into my heart
I float like a butterfly
but I sting like a bee

please, hurry
put my mind at ease
give me an antidote
in the form of love

the neon of desire
corrupts my heart
I swim through the darkness
like a farm-raised fish

my for-show outfit
is starting to suit me
it rustles against my skin
that turns a pale crimson

please, hurry
put my mind at ease
even my tears are filled with the poison of
the rouge of love
