Background[edit | edit source]

Long time no see, I'm 40meter-P. A hopeless couple's song.
—40mP

"Jenga" is an original song by 40mP featuring Hatsune Miku. It is a song full of the Jenga game metaphors, describing Miku and her lover in a shaky relationship that starts to collapse while they're trying to find their future. Then the relationship collapses like the Jenga tower when someone makes a wrong move, but Miku refuses to give up and suggests to pick up the pieces before their memories fade away.

This song has entered the Hall of Legend.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
不確かな感情 罪重ねた愛情 futashika na kanjou tsumikasaneta aijou
逃げた者勝ちの 駆け引きのゲーム nigeta mono gachi no kakehiki no geemu
失うことで手に入れたものに、何の意味があるのかな? ushinau koto de te ni ireta mono ni, nanno imi ga aru no kana?

気づかないフリ 傷つかないフリ kizukanai furi kizutsukanai furi
嘘をつくことで真実を守った uso wo tsuku koto de shinjitsu wo mamotta
行き場を無くした自分のココロは、どこに重ねればいいの? ikiba wo nakushita jibun no kokoro wa, doko ni kasanereba ii no?

手探りで捜し求めた 僕らが選ぶべき未来 tesaguri de sagashimotometa bokura ga erabu beki mirai
抜き取ったその隙間から 君の涙が見えた気がした nukitotta sono sukima kara kimi no namida ga mieta kigashita

二人の目の前で脆く 崩れ去ってしまったんだ futari no menomae de moroku kuzure satte shimattanda
虚しくて 悔しくて まだ認めたくないけど munashikute kuyashikute mada mitometakunai kedo
時間を巻き戻せるなら 出会う前の二人へ jikan wo makimodoseru nara deau mae no futari he
疑いもしなかった あの頃の僕らが 無言で散らばっている utagai mo shinakatta ano koro no bokura ga mugon de chirabatteiru

君のココロが傷つかないように kimi no kokoro ga kizutsukanai youni
自分のことを傷つけないように jibun no koto wo kizutsukenai youni
サヨナラ告げたあの時の僕は、上手く笑えてたのかな? sayonara tsugeta ano toki no boku wa, umaku waraeteta no kana?

きっと僕らいつでもこんな風に 誤魔化しながら過ごした kitto bokura itsudemo konna fuu ni gomakashinagara sugoshita
積み重なった幾つもの矛盾に 押し潰されそうになっていたのに tsumikasanatta ikutsu mono mujun ni oshitsubusaresou ni natteita noni

重ね合った限りある時間を まるで永遠みたいに形造って kasaneatta kagiriaru jikan wo marude eien mitai ni katachi tsukutte
未来を、夢見ていた・・・ mirai wo, yumemiteita...

二人の目の前で脆く 崩れ去ってしまったんだ futari no menomae de moroku kuzure satte shimattanda
虚しくて 悔しくて まだ認めたくないけど munashikute kuyashikute mada mitometakunai kedo
時間は残酷に何度でも 繰り返していくんだろう jikan wa zankoku ni nandodemo kurikaeshite yukundarou
楽しかった記憶さえ 消えてしまう前に tanoshikatta kioku sae kieteshimau mae ni
君と僕のピースを もう一度 拾い集めるよ kimi to boku no piisu wo mouichido hiroi atsumeru yo
