I'm sorry... after awhile, let me sleep by your name

The passing days drew us closer
The pain is matched with joy.
Both hands reflect that
I cry when I think of you.

There is a rain of sadness
It's fine just to remain unknown.
I tremble for repose, I remembered
What do you want to see in this reeled in dream?

I don't want you to fade
Let me hear, even a sigh.
A small heartbeat, that isn't there
I want you, come here!

Unchanging dreams, if this continues on
Please don't pause in your happiness.
Even if it doesn't need to call out, but,
The drowning days are piling over me.

I don't want you to fade
Let me hear, even a sigh
A small heartbeat, that isn't there
I want you, come here!

Even the hands of salvation is also in vagueness
Will there be a cocoon at intervals of the second, Without the string tearing off?

I don't want you to fade
I want to hear, even a sigh.
Little rhythm to the sound of the heartbeat
Of touched prayers delivered.

The name which I cannot call out I held closely
Counting with my fingers, I don't want tomorrow to disappear.

Hearing with blocked ears
The sound of a broken cradle.
The spring time will never come again
The crimson lotus is in bloom.

    General Comment"I got this info from another jrock forum called Top Flight so credits to that. It is originally in Chinese, so i translated it to English for better understanding =]

    so first, there are objects and colours that represents something in this PV So first, there are objects and colours that represents something in this PV

    1. the tap = penis 1. Penis the tap =
    2. red room = mother's uterus 2. Red room = mother's uterus
    3. white paint = sperm 3. White paint sperm =
    4. the girl = embryo 4. Embryo the girl =
    5. colour red = alive 5. Colour red = alive
    6. colour white = death 6. Colour white = death

    it also says that Guren actually means uterus in Jap oo.? all i know was that it meant lotus... It also says that Guren actually means uterus in Jap oo? All i know was that it meant lotus ...

    here we go: Here we go:

    at the beginning of the song you can hear the girl laughing [but i cannot hear that, maybe the single version?] ..which represents the embryo's innocence in the mother's stomach and also the baby's loneliness inside her mother At the beginning of the song you can hear the girl laughing [but i cannot hear that, maybe the single version?] .. Which represents the embryo's innocence in the mother's stomach and also the baby's loneliness inside her mother

    then you can see the girl moving around in her red dress, in the red room and she was painting the walls with the white paint. But eventually, the room turned white and her dress isn't red anymore but white, it meant that death has come upon the embryo and she died inside the mother's uterus Then you can see the girl moving around in her red dress, in the red room and she was painting the walls with the white paint. But eventually, the room turned white and her dress isn't red anymore but white, it meant that death has come upon the embryo and she died inside the mother's uterus

    if you watch the PV again, the girl walks/ move around ONLY when she's wearing the red dress, in the red room. But when gazette was singing, the girl was wearing white and she was standing in a corner, NOT MOVING because she died already so the whole scenery revolves around the death of the embryo If you watch the PV again, the girl walks / move around ONLY when she's wearing the red dress, in the red room. But when gazette was singing, the girl was wearing white and she was standing in a corner, NOT MOVING because she died already so the whole scenery revolves around the death of the embryo

    When you refer back to the lyrics, it actually makes sense and the lyrics are written from the mother's point of view. When you refer back to the lyrics, it actually makes sense and the lyrics are written from the mother's point of view.

    theres also another version of the story, but it says the mother is GIVING UP on her child and then she regrets what she did. Theres also another version of the story, but it says the mother is GIVING UP on her child and then she regrets what she did.

    General CommentI love this song! well i love all their songs(that i've heard) but this song was awesome.
    dont you kind of think its about a misscarage?
    i mean the broken cradel -cradel being the womb.
    fade-the babys gone.

    General Commenti have to agree with the excentric. the line "A small heartbeat, that isn't there" made me think that even as i read the lyrics before looking down here.

    General CommentI think that it carries with it an anti-abortion message. I know, it's really subtle. Even if you ignore the video and just go by what's in the song, you can conclude that it's about taking care in pregnancy. A baby is very fragile.

    General CommentI think at the beginning of the song it's translated "I'm sorry after a while, that your name is dead to me." I think, I'm not sure.

    I have to agree that this song is about a miscarriage. The final line "The crimson lotus is in bloom" makes me think about a woman's period, which would occur after a miscarriage.

    Anyways, this is a really awesome song!! It's my favorite by them, the PV too ^^

    My InterpretationI'm almost positive that this song is about an abortion.
