Confining Marriage ~ Tragedy ~

Here we are with Touji theme songs! He actually gets two: one is his theme song and the other is the OP for the game, but also one of his theme songs. I’m going to translate both songs first and then the short drama track. The YouTube clips linked are Dusk’s official samples.

Remember, these are out of order.

*** TRACK 4: Underneath the Cherry Blossom Tree ***

暁の陽は何も照らすことなく閉じゆく
The light of dawn illuminates nothing and ends
諦めの中仰ぐ救いの光、見つめ
Resigned, I stared up at the light of salvation

たとえ明日、君の刃が狂った運命裂くとしても
Even if your blade cleaves this crazed fate
「幸せだよ」と心から微笑み
I’ll smile from the bottom of my heart and say, “I was happy”
桜の下、涙に触れる
Underneath the cherry blossom tree, I touch your tears

永遠を誓う時
In the eternity I swore
いつの日か愛しあえる
one day we’ll love each other
そう信じ伸ばした手
Believing in that, I stretched out my hand
何も掴めず落ちた
grabbed nothing and fell

「君以外望むものなど無い」と
Even though I tell you, “I don’t wish for anything but you”
縋りつき、涙しても
clinging to you and crying
凍った瞳、暗く笑むばかりで
You just smile darkly with frozen eyes
呪いの種
The seed of the curse
芽吹いて絡む
sprouts and entangles around me

沈んで這いあがれない
I’m sinking and I can’t crawl up
穢れた血
This tainted blood
この身 浸食する
corrodes into my body
それでも隣にいたい
Even still, I want to be at your side
浅ましい願いだと知りつつ
knowing it’s a wretched wish

たとえ明日、君の刃が
Even if tomorrow your blade
狂った運命、裂くとしたら
cleaves this crazed fate
君に残せるものは全ておいて
I’ll leave everything to you
桜の下 眠るよ
and sleep underneath this cherry blossom tree

約束を唇に受け
I accept the promise on your lips
潤んだ瞳と笑みに出会う
and meet those damp eyes and that smile

甘い殺意がこの息を止めたら
If your sweet murderous intent ends my breath
君を待とう、黄泉への道で
I’ll wait for you on the road to hell

Bonus Piano Version of “Underneath the Cherry Blossom Tree”

*** TRACK 3: To Break Down Saijou Touji ***

*walking*

Touji: Hm? What’s wrong? Did a rare bird stop on the cherry blossom tree?

T: You felt like you heard someone’s voice?

T: Ah! Could it be that you heard the voice of my heart!? I’m always whispering in my heart, you see. That “I l-o-v-e you.” Hahaha!

T: Aah, wait!

T: It’s boring to stroll around alone, right? It’s also not good prenatal care.

T: Haha, what? Are you worried about my work? You don’t have to be concerned about that. Yesterday, in order to be able to stroll around the garden with you, I finished today’s share of work while I was already working.

T: So, please don’t worry. I’ll be able to accompy you for your entire walk today!

T: Ah, if you feel like you’re going to trip, then I’ll support you.

T: Mm~mm! You’re so admirable for not wanting to trouble your husband. You’re so wonderful! You really are an angel! A miracle that descended onto the ground and my one and only cute wife. *kisses; still walking*

T: Eh? You’re cold? That won’t do. Here, put this shawl around you.

T: You aren’t cold with this anymore, right?

T: I see. Good. If you’re still cold, then I’ll bring a coat to you. Ah, or… *whispers* I can caress you and warm you up? *heroine shakes head* Don’t be shy. Look over here.

T: You must be tired, so you can lean against that cherry blossom tree. If you stay still then I’ll make you burn up from inside. *kisses*

[02:42]

T: … Huh? Just now, was there movement in your stomach?

T: Haha! As expected of our child. It’s like they know this is a joyous thing. I’ll have to teach them more… like just how much we love each other. *kisses*

*wind blows*

T: …? Just now, I think I also heard something? Maybe it’s my imagination.

T: Ah! It must be the voice of the heart from the one in your stomach! Hehe, I’m so excited. I’m sure just like the name you gave them, Hikaru, this child will become someone who lights up the Saijou Family. Perhaps they’ll also uncover what’s beneath my heart and break that down, like a light that’s too dazzling.

*** TRACK 5: Persona ***

遠い光のもとで笑顔見て、運命を得る
I look on with a smile at that distant light, having obtained fate
熱い体の中、もてあましてた、欲を
This unmanageable desire in my hot body
忍んでたぎらせた秘密の気持ちを
these feelings that snuck up and overflowed
今やっと、解き放とう
can now finally be released

覗き見た瞳の奥
In the depths of the eyes I looked into
可憐に揺れながら応えてくれていた
there was a sweet and lovely response, although it wavered
「想いは届いた」と
They said “Your feelings have reached me”

喜びにむせび泣いて、抱き寄せ
I sobbed with pleasure and held you to me
耳もとで囁き続けてた
I whispered beside your ears
「もう永久に離さない」
“I won’t let you go for an eternity”

「幸せにしてみせる」
“I’ll make you happy”
心から愛を誓った
I swore my love from the bottom of my heart
「君のいる世界は、嗚呼なんて素晴らしい」
“The world you’re in, ah, how wonderful it is”
激しさに震えて汗ばむ体に
On that sweat-covered body, trembling at the passion
赤い痕、刻んでいく
I carved my red marks

けれどなぜ、君の笑顔、消えたの?
But why did your smile disappear?
おかしいな。心も見えないよ
How strange. I can’t see your heart either
隠しているんだね?
You’re hiding it, aren’t you?
恥ずかしがり屋さんな君の声
Your easily embarrassed voice
この胸に直接響いてる
echoes directly in my heart
……そうだと信じさせて
… Let me believe in that

絶望の夜を重ね、気づいた
Tangled together on the night of despair, I realized this
「跪き、愛を希っても、どんなに捧げても、
“Even if I kneel, even if I wish for love, even if I offer you anything
この恋は永遠に叶わない」
this love will never be granted for an eternity”

そう嘆く声はかすれ、消える
My lamenting voice grows hoarse and disappears
血濡れた桜見あげ
I look up at the blood-stained cherry blossoms
未来 思う
I believe that’s the future

    I’m sorry but in the first video when touji basically laser eyed I lost it. I really like his theme and BGM but I had to wait until I stopped cackling
