Lyrics from
kanojo wa miseshime ni tsurusarete ita
boku wa sore o utsu dake no o-shigoto
soutou urami o katte kita rashii
mochiron sonna no boku ni kankei nai   utsu dake

Lyrics from
She was going to be hanged to set an example
My job was just to shoot her
It seemed she was carrying a significant grudge
But that couldn't have anything to do with me -- I just had to shoot

Lyrics from
demo mukashi koi o oboeta hito ni yoku nite'ta n'da

Lyrics from
But she looked just like someone I loved long ago...

Lyrics from
yame tokya yokatta   konna baka na koto
heta o utta na
ROOPU o tachikitte kanojo no te o toru to yamikumo ni hashitte'ta

Lyrics from
I wish I hadn't done it--it was such a stupid thing to do
A really careless decision
But I cut the rope and took her hand and ran blindly away

Lyrics from
kakureru tame ni mori e to nigeta
soko de iki o tsuita

Lyrics from
We fled to the forest to hide
And there we caught our breath

Lyrics from
sono yoru kanojo no hanashi o kiite nemutta
doujou shikitte'ta
okiru to kane o nusumare dokoka ni kiesatte'ta

Lyrics from
That night I fell asleep listening to her story
And I felt such sympathy
But when I awoke she'd stolen my money and vanished

Lyrics from
kyou tote juu o utsu dake no o-shigoto
nigenai you ashikase tsukerare
tsurusareta yatsu no kao mite douyou shita
katsute kono te de nigashita hito datta kara

Lyrics from
Today, again, my job was just to shoot my gun
I was in shackles so I couldn't run off
When I saw the face of the person who was going to be hanged, I was shocked
She was the one I'd once helped run away

Lyrics from
kondo koso hontou ni utsubeki to omotta   demo

Lyrics from
"This time I'll really shoot her," I thought, but...

Lyrics from
yappari utenai   hajimete suki ni natta hito dakara
chiisa na toki wa benkyou mo oshiete kureta   yasashii hito

Lyrics from
Of course I couldn't do it, because she was the first one I'd loved
A kind person who used to help me study when I was small

Lyrics from
minshuu no dosei ga boku no senaka osu   kekkyoku utta no wa
kanojo tsurusu ROOPU   "hitori de nigero!" to boku wa sakende'ta
tsugi no hi boku ga tsurusarete ita
kimi wa ima nani o shite'ru ka na...

Lyrics from
The grumbling of the crowd pushed me to shoot after all
I shot the rope that was hanging her and shouted "Run by yourself!"
The next day, it was my turn to be hanged
I wonder what you're doing now...
