TOMORROW NEVER DIES

Romaji and English translation of the song TOMORROW NEVER DIES from the album TOXIC by the GazettE.

Translator's Notes
  • Lyrics originally sung in English are in italics , and words or phrases I felt were implied are in [brackets] in the translation.
  • I also (usually) put repeats of chorus/verses/stanzas in [brackets] if they’re not written that way in the original lyrics for ease of singing along.
  • If he writes a word in the lyrics but doesn’t sing it, I put it in light grey to make it easier to skip when singing along.
  • I usually romajize katakana characters in CAPITALS, and keep punctuation and line spacing as close to the original booklet as possible. If you see me putting spaces before punctuation at the end of a sentence or writing things in mixed-case capitals, that’s because it’s how it was in the booklet.
  • Any comments I had during the romajization/translation process will be included as footnotes so as not to disturb the flow of the song. They’re not required reading, but Ruki does some pretty nifty things with his lyrics/kanji choices, or sometimes there’s further explanations about words or phrases in there.

TOMORROW NEVER DIES: Romaji

Don’t delete the value to live for by death

Kanjou wo kakimidashite kimi ga odotteru
Hibi kanjiru kutsuu wo haite asu wo ikireru nara

The only words that I can say to you

[Don’t delete the value to live for by death]

Myakutsu kodou      mune ni sashite kimi ga nageki sakebu
HEDORO mamire no sono ashi de koko ni kodoku wo suteni kureba ii

The only words that I can say to you
―Don’t forget the heat that felt here―

[Don’t delete the value to live for by death]

Spit out a pain here
Erase a hesitation
Kikoeteiru kai?

To this day

How many times did you think about death?
In the small world
The death doesn’t give freedom to you
Even feelings fade away
How many times did you think about death?
In the broken world

If you can believe nothing
Spit out a pain here

[Don’t delete the value to live for by death]

[If you can believe nothing
Spit out a pain here]

[If you can believe nothing
Spit out a pain here]

Kiritsukeru mae ni toikakete mina     agaite made ikiteyuku kachi ni
Asu wo tatsu sono mui misani     dareka ga negatta asu ni―

[Don’t delete the value to live for by death]

[Spit out a pain here
Erase a hesitation
Kikoeteiru kai?]

How many times did you think about death?
In the small world
The death doesn’t give freedom to you
How many times did you think about death?
In the broken world
Tomorrow does not disappear
Don’t kill yourself

How many times did you think about death?
In the small world
The death doesn’t give freedom to you
Even feelings fade away
How many times did you think about death?
In the broken world
Tomorrow does not disappear
Don’t kill yourself

[Don’t kill yourself
Don’t kill yourself
Don’t kill yourself]


TOMORROW NEVER DIES: Translation

Don’t delete the value to live for by death

Your dancing stirs up your emotions
As if you can live for tomorrow by expressing the anguish you feel every day

The only words that I can say to you

[Don’t delete the value to live for by death]

Your heart pounds      and you cry out in agony as it pierces your chest
You can come to me here, even covered in filth, to discard your loneliness

The only words that I can say to you
―Don’t forget the heat that felt here―

[Don’t delete the value to live for by death]

 Spit out a pain here
Erase a hesitation
You can still hear me, can’t you?

To this day

How many times did you think about death?
In the small world
The death doesn’t give freedom to you
Even feelings fade away
How many times did you think about death?
In the broken world

If you can believe nothing
Spit out a pain here

[Don’t delete the value to live for by death]

[If you can believe nothing
Spit out a pain here]

[If you can believe nothing
Spit out a pain here]

Before you end it all, question it:     the value of struggling to survive another day
And how senseless it is to throw away your future     when there’s someone who so desperately wanted you to have one―

[Don’t delete the value to live for by death]

[Spit out a pain here
Erase a hesitation
You can still hear me, can’t you?]

How many times did you think about death?
In the small world
The death doesn’t give freedom to you
How many times did you think about death?
In the broken world
Tomorrow does not disappear
Don’t kill yourself

How many times did you think about death?
In the small world
The death doesn’t give freedom to you
Even feelings fade away
How many times did you think about death?
In the broken world
Tomorrow does not disappear
Don’t kill yourself

[Don’t kill yourself
Don’t kill yourself
Don’t kill yourself]
