BackgroundEdit

"In Iolite" is an original LUMi song by GHOST. It is one of their "experimental" songs and their first song to originally be released in Japanese. According to them, the song is sung from the perspective of a person's future self who is speaking to themselves from the past. They also add that the future person is in a place where life and their mental health is so much better while the past self is still stuck in a really dark place.[1]

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字) Official English (公式英訳)
「ただいま」と戻って "tadaima" to modotte You returned with an "I'm home"
そばに行って soba ni itte And stayed by me
ストップライトで止まって sutoppuraito de tomatte Stopped by the stoplight
言いたいこと iitai koto Things you want to say

朝まで寝ない asa made nenai Not sleeping 'til morning
空色見て sorairo mite Look at the colors of the sky
ただの年だけ tada no toshi dake It’s just a year
ここから出すよ koko kara dasu yo Let’s get out of here

バックロードで躊躇う bakku roodo de tamerau Hesitating on the back road
またある mata aru It’s here again
君は亀裂でステップのは kimi wa kiretsu de suteppu no wa You didn’t want to
したくなかった shitaku nakatta Step on the cracks

ここから出す koko kara dasu yo Let’s get out of here

アイオライトにまだいる aioraito ni mada iru I’m still waiting in iolite
アイオライトに君の戻る aioraito ni kimi no modoru Waiting in iolite for your return
アイオライトにまだいる aioraito ni mada iru I’m still waiting in iolite
君と会う時までずっと kimi to au toki made zutto Forever, until we meet again

ライフラインで掛かるのは raifurain de kakaru no wa Hung on that lifeline
あの心 ano kokoro Was your heart
もうここに泊まる mou koko ni tomaru Let’s stop here
ちょっと進むすぎる chotto susumu sugiru Let’s go a little too far

朝まで寝ない asa made nenai Not sleeping 'til morning
空色見て sorairo mite Look at the colors of the sky
ただの年だ tada no toshi da It’s just a year
ここから出す koko kara dasu Let’s get out of here

アイオライトに待ってた aioraito ni matteta I waited in iolite
君と会う時までずっと kimi to au toki made zutto Forever, until we could meet again

別の今日 betsu no kyou Another today
別の年と betsu no toshi to Another year, and
千の昨日 sen no kinou A thousand tomorrows
と別の千くる to betsu no sen kuru And a thousand more to come
ここにある koko ni aru Are right here
a Ah

You hung your coat on the back door
Intended to stay
Held by the stoplight stuck on
Things you'd love to say

Staying up all night
Flying colored kites
It's just another year
So lets get out of here

You took your time on the backroad
It reappeared
And you were afraid you would step on the cracks and
Tarnish their revere

So lets get out of here

I've been waiting in iolite
I'll be waiting for you to come around
I've been waiting in iolite
I'll be waiting for you to come around

You hung your heart on the lifeline
Lit up inside
Let's stay a little bit longer
Let's go a little bit further

Staying up all night
Flying colored kites
It's just another year
So lets get out of here

I've been waiting in iolite
I'll be waiting for you to come around

Give it one more day
And give it one more year
A thousand yesterdays
A thousand more to come your way
Are here to stay

Ah

TriviaEdit

  • The Japanese lyrics of the song are actually translyrics that were made from the original English version of the song that GHOST wrote. However, a bit of the song's meaning got lost in the process as GHOST and Polycerate Majesty had to shorten some phrases and reword things for them to fit in with the song's melody.[2][3]
  • The PV of the song was filmed in various places around where GHOST lived at the time.
