ザクロは血の味 恋の味 (Pomegranates Have the Taste of Blood; the Taste of Love) Lyrics


^Best Touhou Character Ever.

An “I want to eat you, but I love you” song. If you think about the context, it’s very similar to Flandre’s song, except Remilia is overcome by her love, and Flandre by her hunger/lust. For an EastNewSound song – it’s actually relatively easy to translate :)

Think what you want, I prefer to think of this as a RemixSaku. Partially because I’m a fangirl of that pairing :)

TLNote:
おいしそうでしょ ← actually more like “don’t they/doesn’t it look/seem delicious?” but it’s awkward in the line so I just changed it to “it’s delicious.”

気に入らないのよ よそ見するなんて
私だけを 見てなさい
私があなたを一番好きなのよ
不服なの?文句ないでしょ?

I don’t like it, you looking away from me.
Look only at me.
I love you the most after all.
Dissatisfied? You don’t have any complaints do you?

ザクロは血の味 人の味なの おいしそうでしょ
あなたをかじるとザクロの味がするか味見させて

Pomegranates have the taste of blood, of humans; it’s delicious.
Everytime I feel you I can almost taste it… Let me taste you.

紅茶みたいに飲み干したいの
あなたの全て欲しくてたまらない
きっと甘くておいしいはずよ
だって私が選んだんだから

I want to drink it down like red tea.
I can’t help but want all of you.
I’m sure you would be tasty and sweet.
After all, I’m the one who picked you.

横顔となりで見てるだけで 私
ときめいてる くやしいわ
どこにも行かないように
どこかに閉じ込めたい
誰の目にもふれさせたくない

Just seeing your face… I…
My heart throbs, it’s painful…
I want to shut you away somewhere,
So you won’t go anywhere.
I don’t want anyone to see us.

ザクロは血の味 恋の味なの とりこになってく
甘いくちづけかわすたびに あなたにおちていく

Pomegranates have the taste of blood; the taste of love. I’m captive to it.
With every sweet kiss I’m falling into you.

夜になったらあなたの元へ 羽ばたいていくの
会いたいから
暗闇だったらわからないでしょ
あなた想って赤く染まった頬

When night falls I’ll come flying to your side,
Because I want to be with you.
When darkness falls I don’t know what will happen,
Thinking of you, my cheeks stained red.

あなたのいない世界なんて
今は考えられないのよ
素直になれずうつむく私を
その両腕できつく抱きしめて

I can’t possibly imagine
A world without you now.
With both of your arms, embrace me tightly,
As I hang my head, unable to look forward.
