Sakasama No Chou – Jigoku Shoujo (Opening Theme) – Song Lyrics

Well, as I am busy with my NaNo’ing throughout this month, updates on my blog will be very infrequent and there could be periods of a few days silence. Besides that, trying to write a 50,000 word novel has taken a toll on me…I just can’t think of anything else that would be an engaging read on my blog.

The Girl from HellSo, following my pet sis’ lead, I am posting a couple of lyrics for various anime songs throughout this week. The first one up, of which I am proud to introduce, is Sakasama No Chou performed by the Japanese artiste SNoW. This song is the opening theme song for the breathtaking, and at times gripping and shocking anime titled Jigoku Shoujo or in English – Girl From Hell. It’s currently showing in Malaysia on Animax (ASTRO Channel 75) every Monday to Friday, 11:30pm.

Lyrics originally from Gendou.com

Sakasama No Chou by SNoW (English)

 Someday the inversed butterfly will face the light
I cut my hair with you in the mirror
The hallways while class is in session; the echoing sound of footsteps
The sound of the ceaseless rain follows

While I feel it, the figure is blinding
It’ll become a sweet flower; it’ll become a poisonous fruit, too
Today it’s raining again; I want to be connected to that person
Through his sky and my sky now

In this Craziness, Uncertainty
I wonder if we can leave behind each and everyone’s thoughts somewhere
In this Craziness, You gave me life
I wonder to how far can we protect a single thought

You remember, inversed butterfly
The exchange of mail has no end
Even if I’m set adrift, I should swim
The ceaseless voices of people are like waves

While I believe it, the spreading melody
A gentle rhythm that seems to start weeping
It’s always raining; the present continues into the future
Or so I want to think

In this Craziness, Uncertainty
I wonder if we can leave behind each and everyone’s figures somewhere
In this Craziness, You gave me life
I wonder to how far can we protect their respective figures

Hey, feelings that can’t be told in words exist
No matter to how far people stretch out their hands
A place that they can’t reach exists inside of people
Because I like each and everyone’s soundless thoughts
Even if I don’t become something, I remain unchanged on any day

In this Craziness, Uncertainty
I wonder if we can leave behind each and everyone’s thoughts somewhere
In this Craziness, You gave me life
I wonder to how far can we protect a single thought

In this Craziness, Uncertainty
I wonder if we can leave behind each and everyone’s figures somewhere
In this Craziness, You gave me life
I wonder to how far can we protect their respective figures

In this Craziness, Uncertainty
Each and everyone’s aspirations
In this Craziness, You gave me life
A single brilliance
In this Craziness, Uncertainty
Each and everyone’s palpitations
In this Craziness, You gave me life
A single impression
In this Craziness, Uncertainty
Each and everyone’s gazes
In this Craziness, You gave me life
A single coincedence
In this Craziness, Uncertainty
Each and everyone’s warmth
In this Craziness, You gave me life
A single promise

Sakasama No Chou by SNoW (Japanese romaji)

itsuka hikari ni mukau sakasama no chou
kimi to kami wo kiru kagami no naka
jugyouchuu no rouka hibiku ashioto
taezu ame no oto ga tsuite kuru yo

kanjiru mama no katachi wa mabushii
amai hana ni naru doku no mi ni mo naru
kyou mo ame ano hi to ima wo
sora to sora de tsunagitai no

*1 In this Craziness, Uncertainty
hitori hitori no omoi wo bokura wa dokoka ni nokoseru darou ka
In this Craziness, You gave me life
hitotsu no omoi wo bokura wa doko made mamoreru darou ka

kimi wa oboete iru no sakasama no chou
ME-RU no yaritori wa toritome mo nai
nagasarete itemo oyogereba ii
taezu hito no koe wa nami no you ni

shinjiru mama ni tsutaeru MERODI
yasashii RIZUMU nakidashisou ni naru
itsumo ame ima ga mirai e to tsudzuku
sou omoitai yo

*2 In this Craziness, Uncertainty

hitori hitori no katachi wo bokura wa dokoka ni nokoseru darou ka
In this Craziness, You gave me life
sorezore no katachi wo bokura wa doko made mamoreru darou ka

kotoba ni naritagaranai kimochi ga arimasu
hito ga ikura te wo nobashitemo
hito no naka ni todokanai basho ga aru
koe ni naranai hitori hitori no omoi ga suki dakara
nanika ni naranakutemo itsu no hi demo kawarazu

*1, *2 twice

In this Craziness, Uncertainty hitori hitori no akogare
In this Craziness, You gave me life hitotsu no kagayaki
In this Craziness, Uncertainty hitori hitori no tokimeki
In this Craziness, You gave me life hitotsu no kandou
In this Craziness, Uncertainty hitori hitori no manazashi
In this Craziness, You gave me life hitotsu no guuzen
In this Craziness, Uncertainty hitori hitori no nukumori
In this Craziness, You gave me life hitotsu no yakusoku

  13. I know the chords, but the song itself have no chords, just “arpegio” wich remains in C#, if you want a clue, the intro have diferent chords that the bass, like:
    Intro Arpegio:
    Eb B C#
    Then, the bass in the song are
    Bb F# C# G#
    Bb F# G# G#
    the “arpegio” still in C#

    This song is a tricky one cuz I think has a half step down, if that so the will be sometin like this

    Intro:
    E Bb C

    B G D A
    B G A A
