Lyrics from Animelyrics.com

"subete wo shiru kakugo ga aru no ka?" to hon wa tou.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The fingers turning the first page were shaking.
"Do you have the resolve to know everything?", the book asks.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
hokori ni mamireta shomotsu no naka ni wa anata no shirushita "shinjitsu" ga nemuru.

Inside the book coated in dust, the "truth" you wrote sleeps.

mayoikonda watashi wa, sono hon wo te ni shite shimaimashita.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
A magic spell had been cast on the castle that lay in the middle of the deep wood.
I, who had strayed in, had gotten hold of that book.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
hokori ni mamireta shomotsu no naka ni wa anata no shirushita "shinjitsu" ga nemuru.

Inside the book coated in dust, the "truth" you wrote sleeps.

The trembling fingers move slowly.
The darkness stirs.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
--I turned the page.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
soko ni shirusarete ita no wa anata ga kieta wake.
watashi ga shindeshimatta to iu "daishinjitsu" ga.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
There was written the reason you had disappeared;
the "great truth" was that I had died.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"anata wa watashi wo tasukeru tame ni tamashii wo gisei ni shitanda."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"You sacrificed your soul in order to save me."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"aishite imasu" to shomotsu no saigo ni kizamarete ita.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"I love you" was engraved on the final page of the tome.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
subete wo omoidashita ato ni namida ga hitosuji, potari, ochite--.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
After I remembered everything, a single tear trails and falls with a drip--.

Line 11: the original lyrics are written with full stops at the end of every line to indicate that there's no enjambment, but this sentence could grammatically be part of the previous sentence, delayed for dramatic impact. Line 11: written "truth" but sung "great truth", indicating the in-universe reader finds the truth to be more profound than the one who wrote it.

Final line: the lyrics end abruptly in the middle of the conjugation of a verb, implying that the line is left incomplete.
