空に近い場所 // Sora ni Chikai Basho

This song is brilliant, like a page out of some good NTR-fiction.

The narrator wakes up to a female friend having sex with them in bed.

To sum this up, this nightmare is a succubus, and the succubus is Kosuzu (according to the artwork).

The actual song doesn’t pin down the narrator as male or female (Akyuu), though there are hints that suggest it is female x female. Of course it can work either way.

「ねえ ごめんね。こんなことになって」と
その両目を潤ませ
あなたの手がそっと その震えを伝えて

“nee gomen’ ne. kon’na koto ni natte” to
sono ryoume wo urumase
anata no te ga sotto sono furue wo tsutaete

“I’m so sorry that it ended up this way,”
You say with tears in your eyes, and
Through your hands I can feel you shaking.

触れ合う手で 何かが伝わるの
何もかも押し付けて
それでもなおきっと 伝えきれないことを

fureau te de nanika ga tsutawaru no
nani mo ka mo oshitsukete
sore demo nao kitto tsutaekirenai koto wo

Can really anything be conveyed as our hands touch?
You’re pushing everything onto me
Yet I’m sure what you want to convey isn’t all reaching me

もう
いいとも いやとさえも 言えずにただ押し黙っては
感じる熱量だけ
もっともっともっと……高く。

mou
ii tomo iya to sae mo iezu ni tada oshidamatte wa
kan’jiru netsuryou dake
motto motto motto…… takaku.

No longer
Able to accept you or push you away, I stay silent
Just feeling the heat,
Rising higher and higher and… higher.

飛べない
私達には 空を 知る手立て無く

tobenai
watashi tachi ni wa sora wo shiru tedate naku

We cannot fly
We have no way of knowing the sky

それでも
あなたはこうして 私を求め続け

soredemo
anata wa koushite watashi wo motometsudzuke

Yet
The way you keep thirsting for me like this…

こうしていれば
まるで空を飛べるかというようにー。

koushiteireba
maru de sora wo toberu ka to iu you ni-.

When we’re like this
You look as though you feel you can fly…

擦れあうのは 互いの何処なのだろう
その口から零れる
小さな泡沫が 意識の飛沫となって

sureau no wa tagai no doko nano darou
sono kuchi kara koboreru
chiisa na utakata ga ishiki no himatsu to natte

What of our own parts are rubbing against one another?
Tumbling out of your mouth,
That fleeting foam bursts into a spray of consciousness

返す視線が あなたをどうさせるだろう
全て無駄だと知っても
せめてほんのわずか 甘く棘を挿すように

kaesu shisen’ ga anata wo dou saseru darou
subete muda da to shittemo
semete hon’no wazuka amaku toge wo sasu you ni

How will you react when I look back into your eyes?
Even though I know it will mean nothing
I cannot help but to inflict some pain, to prick you like a thorn

結局は
意味など無く 永遠に至ることもない
内なる想だけ
もっともっともっと……深く。

kekkyoku wa
imi nado naku eien’ ni itaru koto mo nai
uchi naru gen’sou dake
motto motto motto…… fukaku.

In the end,
This has no meaning, and nothing from it will last forever.
It is nothing but an internal fantasy
Driving deeper and deeper and… deeper.

飛べない
夜の何処かを 独り独り彷徨うばかり

tobenai
yoru no dokoka wo hitori hitori samayou bakari

We cannot fly.
We only wander the night, each of us alone.

それでも
わたしはどうして この身掻き抱かれて

soredemo
watashi wa doushite kono mi kakidakarete

Yet
The way you clutch at and cling to my body…

夢と現の
境目にいながらにして戸惑うー。

yume to utsutsu no
sakaime ni inagara nishite tomadou-.

I am lost as I
Stand on the boundary between dream and reality.

内なる願望
求めるものもわからずに
でも願うなら 次に会うときには いつも通りに

uchi naru nozomi
motomeru mono mo wakarazu ni
demo negau nara tsugi ni au toki ni wa itsumo doori ni

As for internal desires
Not even those that seek them really know them
But if I were to make one wish, it would be for us to act as if this never happened.

飛べない
「貴女」とでは どこにも 辿り着けない

tobenai
“anata” to de wa doko ni mo tadoritsukenai

We cannot fly.
There is nowhere that I can reach with you.

優しく
そっと視線だけ あなたを拒むように

yasashiku
sotto shisen’ dake anata wo kobamu you ni

Gently
With only my gaze I try to reject you

それでも
心のどこか あなたを受け入れるのは

sore demo
kokoro no doko ka anata wo ukeireru no wa

Yet
Somewhere in my heart I still accept you

飛びたい
そう思うこと きっと似ているのだろう

tobitai
sou omou koto kitto niteiru no darou

Perhaps
It’s because I too feel, in a way, that I want to fly

こうしていれば
きっと少しだけ 空の近くへー。

koushiteireba
kitto sukoshi dake sora no chikaku e-.

That when we’re like this
We are at least, somewhere closer to the sky…
