A.B.C-Z BAD GAME Lyric Translation

I LOVE THIS SONG! This is another powerful song about forbidden love. This one goes through the pain of understanding well that the love you want is a lie, that it’s only going to hurt you, but still wanting it anyway. The lyrics would be totally at home on Zephyr but the poppy synth tunes are perfect for CONTINUE? This is my lasting favourite off the album!

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translation

You’re my, you’re my BAD GAME 

Forbidden and I know it but still why is it that

By the time I realised I was your captive in this Love game 

In the space of an evening all my common sense rots away and I can’t see what’s ahead…

(How do you do it? You so bad

My heart beat races and I can’t sleep 

Danger is your kiss that tastes of poison 

Even in my dreams you’re there Seducing 

Oh dear It’s baffling 

(You’re making me lose my mind this way)

No No Even though I’m sure I’ll learn my lesson

Yes Yes I’ll get back up again 

I won’t stop 

No matter what 

Before I regret it I want to leave a scar

You’re my, you’re my BAD GAME 

The moment you hold out your hand I Black Out 

You’ve got me Lock Up in a world I can’t return from 

I wonder why I’m wishing for even things like this to be ok  

You’re my, you’re my BAD GAME 

I’m sucked in by your sweet smile 

I can’t see clearly

Since even a lie is ok, I want to try holding you in my embrace 

You’re my, you’re my BAD GAME 

BAD GAME Even though it’s dangerous 

Men are fools I know

Cuz Fate is final 

So B.A.D.G.A.M.E

Can I have some fun?

Can I jump right in? 

Can I fall in love? 

Cuz B.A.D.G.A.M.E 

No way Even though I know it means nothing 

Yes Yes I’ll light a fire in you

What are you planning? 

Trap, tell me about it? 

I don’t care, let me fall for it and drown… 

You’re my, you’re my BAD GAME 

The moment you hold out your hand I Black Out 

You’ve got me Lock Up in a world I can’t return from 

I wonder why I’m wishing for even things like this to be ok  

You’re my, you’re my BAD GAME 

Are you really with somebody? 

Are you laughing behind my back? 

I can’t believe there is such a perfect Beautiful Lady 

You’re my, you’re my BAD GAME 

You’re my, you’re my BAD GAME 

The moment you hold out your hand I Black Out 

You’ve got me Lock Up in a world I can’t return from 

I wonder why I’m wishing for even things like this to be ok  

You’re my, you’re my BAD GAME 

I’m sucked in by your sweet smile 

I can’t see clearly

Since even a lie is ok, I want to try holding you in my embrace 

You’re my, you’re my BAD GAME
