Night’s Dark Dream Lyrics

Note: The title of this song ‘Yorukuraimu’ is a parody of the two member hip-hop group, Hirukuraimu, and the song references their 2009 hit ‘Shunkashuutou’, which means ‘spring, summer, autumn, winter’

The song also predominantly uses an old style of speaking, commonly used by prostitutes in the red light district during the Edo period. I tried to use older sounding English words to get the same effect.

Spring, summer, autumn, winter, all four seasons come together (x4)

I was born right here in this city
To be swallowed up by it’s flowing river
And spread wide out into the nighttime parties

On the night of the full moon, I don my favourite heavenly robes
And let an elegant camellia glide across my lips
As a wealth of man fall to their feet

Spring, summer, autumn, winter, all four seasons come together (x4)

Even when the night becomes dawn, the war’s still on
All those men flying up high, slowly drowning in their evil desires
Heading to paradise with their beloved woman

Come be with me
Let’s have some fun together
We’ll seal it with a pinky promise
I want to always be by your side

Spring, summer, autumn, winter, all four seasons come together (x4)

I grew up right here in this city
This lustrous world was my calling
I’ll spread myself wide for you

On the night of the new moon, I shudder back to my master
To live the life of a magnificent crimson rose
I walk in a figure of eight

Spring, summer, autumn, winter, all four seasons come together (x4)

As the night drags on, it turns to war
Men fighting to get to me
But I’ll show no such expression
I simply smile with eyes closed

Come be with me
Let’s have some fun together
We’ll seal it with a pinky promise
That’ll I’ll always be by your side

Spring, summer, autumn, winter, all four seasons come together (x4)

I lost so much here in this city
It cost the sky, the whole Milky Way even
My body and soul spread so far
Illuminated the moonlight
I bloom into a peony once again
And dream in the world of men

Spring, summer, autumn, winter, all four seasons come together (x14)
