This is what they posted:

“untitled and pledge are connected. untitled is the first chapter. the hero of the story is a boy who’s in a relationship with a girl who loves him a lot but he doesn’t love her back. untitled is about that. lines between「」 and – – are what the girl tells him when they are breaking up. the girl knows that he doesn’t love her even though he keeps telling her that and eventually she gets tired of it and breaks up with him. and that’s when the guy realizes that he might actually love her after all 🙂 untitled happens in the end of summer. pledge is what happend one and half years later during winter.”


Don’t miss out the notes in the end of each translation!

Untitled – English translation

It was you who ignored my excuses without saying anything
「I hoped more from you who only clings into me」 ₁

-It’s easy to cover the cracks by using words that have long ago lost their meaning, isn’t it ₂
Your never changing lies are what made me tired of this-

Why do I repeat myself again?

Because I have this habit of hurting you, you are at loss for words again
I wonder why your tears hurt me too even though I’m the reason behind them

You try to look into my eyes that are fixed on the floor
You ask me your questions but I keep holding my knees against myself ₃

-It’s easy to cover the cracks by using words that have long ago lost their meaning, isn’t it
Your never changing lies are what made me tired of this-

Why do I repeat myself again?

Because I have this habit of hurting you, you are at loss for words again
I wonder why your tears hurt me too even though I’m the reason for them

I felt like I could see the end that you said will eventually come

It’s ending in your slowly fading, never changing smile
I felt like I touched your heart that is slowly slipping away from me ₄

(Let’s put an end to it)
So I don’t have to hear your sorrow anymore
so I can block it from my ears
so you won’t end up broken ₅

untitled and pledge are connected. untitled is the first chapter. the hero of the story is a boy who’s in a relationship with a girl who loves him a lot but he doesn’t love her back. untitled is about that. lines between「」 and – – are what the girl tells him when they are breaking up. the girl knows that he doesn’t love her even though he keeps telling her that and eventually she gets tired of it and breaks up with him. and that’s when the guy realizes that he might actually love her after all 🙂 untitled happens in the end of summer. pledge is what happend one and half years later during winter.

₁ literally it says “i had dreams for you who only clings into me”. what she means is that he only clings into her because it’s nice to have someone but he doesn’t really love her but she had hoped that someday he will
₂ the boy keeps telling her he loves her and thinks that just saying it is enough to make everything ok.
₃ tricky part again. they are breaking up and she tries to tell him that she loves him but he’s avoiding her eyes. she wants him to say that he loves her or apologize or something but he can’t so he just keeps holding his knees.
₄ she’s leaving him and now he’s like shit i might actually like her
₅ he never meant to hurt her and he doesn’t want to hear her cry anymore so he let’s her go


Pledge – English translation

What I realized only after I had hurt you was
the number of mistakes I made when I just tried to reach out to you

I filled your days with small lies and understood the true meaning of loss when you left in order to avoid doubting me ₁
This is the second winter since then and I’m not able to move on

You were unsure about the tomorrow you couldn’t see and cried so much
I gathered the tears you cried without being able to find the words for you ₂

The days covered in sadness soaked us both
We wanted to understand each other, do it all over again, this time for real ₃

It’s not a lie when I say I feel this lasting for eternity
when I’m next to you, I’m sure we will

“I don’t need words like「I love you」anymore
just stay by my side”,
you cried with a broken voice
I want you to stay broken like that ₄

My first and last words are for you
so I’ll never let go of your arm
The two of us stand shoulder by shoulder, washed away into the same dream ₅

My small lies changed their shape and melt into our white breaths
I carve the meaning of loss into my heart over and over again so I won’t forget it ₆

Let’s leave that「Goodbye」here and move on
I’ll never lose the sight of you again

In order to confirm our love we went through a lot so
even if we disappear tomorrow, you don’t have to cry anymore ₇

Just like the passing seasons, the two of us grow and change
Even if there are nights that end in sorrow
don’t forget
it will never be over
in this deep dream of ours ₈

₁ long sentence is long. he kept telling her he loves her but she didn’t believe it (and she was right to doubt him) and in the end she couldn’t stand it and they broke up.
₂ she wasn’t sure if the break up was the right thing to do and cried a lot because of it and the guy didn’t know what to say. gathering the tears is like— he regrets that he ever let her cry like that.
₃ soaked us both means that they both cried during the time they weren’t together and they want to give it another try. literally it’s like “this time feeling it deeply” but it means that this time they are going to do it right.
₄ whoop whoop untitled parallels. in the end of untitled he doesn’t want her to cry anymore so he let’s her go so she won’t break. now he doesn’t mind that she’s crying or breaking down because he loves her too much to care about that.
₅ basically they swore they are always going to be together. that is the dream. and the ‘dream’ also means the promise. or pledge to always be together. am i the only one who feels like they got married or something?
₆ when he tells her he loves her it’s no longer a lie. also it’s winter their breaths are white. and he never wants to leave her again so he won’t let himself forget the pain he felt when she was gone
₇ they went through so much shit together that even if they end up breaking up again she doesn’t have to cry about it anymore because well everything is said and done already basically
₈ they will grow old together and even if things get rough or the other one dies it will never be over because they have their dream. and in this context the dream is the pledge they took to stay together forever.

HAPPY END

  1. I knew what the translated lyrics were before, but it wasn’t until this post that I realized how similar untitled is to my current relationship. The part that’s scary is that I’m actually in the girl’s position. I wish I could say that my “story” would end happy too, but I’ll never get that “pledge” ending =(. That’s one of the reasons why I love the gazette though, their songs have helped me through many tough times. I’m sure very soon, untitled will be my song of choice…
