Trapped in isolation, I await you,
I don't know why I'm stuck inside of my own creation.
Surrounded by darkness, I am screaming,
Could this be real? It doesn't feel like I'm really dreaming.

I know this world is fake,
But I begin to shake,
The gloom begins to take its toll on me.
I am imprisoned here,
I pray that you are near,
So you can set me free.

I know this world is fake,
And yet I can't awake,
I am alone, living a nightmare,
And now I wish that I never wished to dream.

Searching for a reason to continue,
I cannot cope, I'm losing hope, will I ever see you?

I know this world is fake,
That could be a mistake,
The fear begins to make me go insane.
I don't know what to do,
I am forgetting you,
I cannot stand the pain.

I know this world is fake,
And yet I can't awake,
I am alone, living a nightmare,

And now I wish that I never wished to dream.
And now I wish that I never wished to dream.

Another vocaloid song I converted to English. The video I first heard this song on actually already had English lyrics, but I made new lyrics that have a completely different meaning; in fact sort of the opposite from the original. This one only took me a day to make.

Hope any viewers like ^^

Hello there! I wanted to make an AMV for a character with "Why Can't I Even Dream" and my plan was to have the original Miku with an English translation used throughout the video. These lyrics fit the character the video is going to be for perfectly, and I'd really love to use them! I will credit you at the end of the video, and link to you in the description. Please let me know if I have your permission (I won't make the video if I don't)! These lyrics really are lovely.

Sorry this is months later; I don't visit DA much anymore. Glad you like the lyrics, if you're still interested in that project, feel free to use them, and good luck if you do.

Do you translate English to Japanese?
savantsean Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
No, I don't translate anything, I barely know a word of Japanese. I only take existing English translations and reword them so that they can be sung.
xxvocaloidfan Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2014
ah, ok. Thanks! Do you know anybody who does though? I kind of need a translator, haha.

Unfortunately nobody comes to mind, so I don't really think I can help. I'm sure you can find someone though.

Depressing song, but I still like the translyrics.
