I corrected some parts and line arrangement, according to the original lyrics.

neiro nanka ja nai tte --> neiro nanka ja nai
Uso ja nai kana yume ja nai kana --> Uso ja nai kara yume ja nai kara

And I changed a line of my transration.

You were sometimes voiceless, weren't you? --> Your voice sometimes ceased, didn't it?

So that's how she had so many kids in the "Sweet Season" PV... All those exciting nights.

I love this song so much, and reading all the crazy theories behind the lyrics makes me appreciate it even more.

The song is fantastic. As well as "Virgin Road".

I LOVE this song. Number one, it is so different from her other stuff, musically. So even without understanding a significant amount of Japanese, it stole my attention immediately when I played it for the first time.
But, not only that, now after reading along with these lyrics (constantly switching between following the Japanese and reading the English translation), I've gotten such an even deeper connection to the song.

I absolutely love the way she sings this part:

If I recall correctly, she never really sings like this, in this quiet and deep/creepy-like tone, in many of her previous songs over the last ten years, if any at all, until now.

Not only that, but then she repeats it in a more audible tone.

I love the way she repeats all the really cool parts of the song (besides the awesome intro) in a louder, different tone throughout the song.

This song also is one of the few songs of hers where the instrumental/karaoke version of the song is awesome enough to be a song by itself! (Another, in my opinion, would be "WHATEVER" from long ago).

Anyway, my point is, this song is great. As well as "Virgin Road". I could do without "Sweet Season" or whatever though.

Thank you Masa, as always!!

in this quiet and deep/creepy-like tone
I think maybe "ever free" and "monochrome" are the two most noticeable previous efforts where she attempted something a little similar to what you're describing? "ever free" does have its high notes, but she's also very quiet in verses, and like she's sing-talking at parts. "monochrome" has a similar, monotonous feel throughout. That might be intentional, given the nature of both songs. Still, I also noticed this shift you're describing for those particular parts of the song -- it's like what she's describing is meant to be more direct, blunt, or stronger? It's hard to describe. I just feel like those two parts of the song are more like she's talking to us instead of singing.

o_o Sense, am I making any?

"If I do, will you come away with me?"
