Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Ourin ga umidasu honoo
Tsumibukaki kono mi wo yakitsukusu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The yellow phosphorus creates a flame which
Burns this sinful body away to nothing

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Hitokakera no PAN wo eru
Okane ga hitsuyou datta
"MACCHI wo katte kuremasen ka?"
Furimuite mo kurenai

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I needed money to
Get a loaf of bread
"Won't you buy some matches?"
People wouldn't turn around for me

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Kibou sae kooritsuku hodo no
Samusa ni mi wo furuwasete ita
Wazuka na nukumori wo motomete
MACCHI no sentan ni hi wo tomoshita

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If only to freeze my hope
My body trembled in the cold
Asking for a little warmth
I lit a fire at the tip of a match

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Yurameki no saki  mieta genzou
Nee misete  shifuku no tsuisou
Ourin ga umidasu honoo
Atatamete  kono mi to kokoro wo

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I could see a vision swaying before me
Hey, charm me with a recollection of absolute bliss
The yellow phosphorus creates a flame which
Warms up this body and soul

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Genjitsu ni modoreba soko ni wa
Urenokori no kodoku

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
When I return to reality, there's
A loneliness over the unsold items

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Subete no MACCHI wo uru made
Chichi wa nani mo tabesasete kurenai
Samusa mo kuufuku mo  mou iya da
Chichi no matsu wagaya ni hi wo tomoshita

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Until all matches are sold
My father won't let me eat anything 
There's just no way I'm going to be cold and hungry
I lit my house on fire with my father waiting inside

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Yurameki no saki  mieta eizou
Nee moete  iku sen no kunou
Yakeochita ie kara mochidashita
KOIN de hitotsu PAN wo katta

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I could see a silhouette swaying before me
Come on, burn with anguish a thousand-fold
Because I burned down the house I was brought up in
I bought a loaf of bread with some coins

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Sore wa yurusarenu daizai
Shibari tsukerareta karada
Shokei nin ga watashi no ashimoto ni
Hi wo tomoshita

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
They won't let me off for that serious crime
My body is bound
At my feet, the executioner
Lit a fire

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Hitokakera hodo no PAN ga tabetakatta dake
Sore sae mo yurusarenakatta
Ourin ga umidasu honoo
Yakitsukusu  kono mi to kokoro wo

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I just wanted to eat a loaf of bread
They couldn't even allow that
The yellow phosphorus creates a flame which
Burns this body and soul away to nothing

Yellow phosphorus is the same as white.... I couldn't decide which to use, so I just chose yellow since it reminds me of a flame :p
