This is the Japanese rendition from Seal’s most famous version! I find the Japanese version really appealing so check it out. It was performed by Angela Aki, who also popularize This Love (theme song for Blood+ anime) and my favorite song Sakurairo.

Japanese lyrics

Honoo no naka de anata wo mita

Ai ga koge tsuku senjou de

Kin no jishin no ken wo te ni

Toki wo saite

Watashi no hou he to chikaduite kita

Baby jihi wo negau watshi no sakebi

Shiroi hata wa sude ni ageta ga

Ai de shinu nara KISU de koroshite

Tabibito no you ki ikite kita

Yado no nai kono kokoro ga Baby

Samayoi tadori tsuita tokoro wa

Anata to iu daichi

Akai jounetsu no new o hari

Bara no hana ga saita

Baby tsui ni anata ni kousan suru

Shiroi hata wa sude ni ageta ga

Ai de shinu nara KISU de koroshite

Anata no kuchiduke de

Anata no manazashi de

Hi ga tsuita karada ga

Hai ni naru yo

There is so much a man can

tell you, so much he can say

You remain my power,

my pleasure, my pain

To me you’re like a growing

addiction that I can’t deny

Won’t you tell me is that healthy, babe

But did you know, that when it

snows, my eyes become enlarged

and the light that you shine can be seen?

Baby, I compare you to a kiss

from a rose on the grave

The more I get of you

the stranger it feels, yeah

Now that your rose is in bloom

a light hits the gloom on the grave.

Ai de shinu nara KISU de koroshite.

English Translation

I saw you within the flames

of the battlefield that burned me with love

Tearing apart time, holding

a golden sword of confidence

coming closer and closer to me

Baby, I cried out for mercy

but it was too late to wave the white flag

If this love is dead, kill me with a kiss

I was born as a wandered

Baby, my heart knows no home

I wandered around till I arrived

at the world called you

planting a red seed of passion

which bloomed into a rose

Baby, I’m finally giving in to you

but it’s too late to wave the white flag

If this love is dead, kill me with a kiss

Your kiss

Your look

are like a flame

turning my body to ashes

There is so much a man can

tell you, so much he can say

You remain my power,

my pleasure, my pain

To me you’re like a growing

addiction that I can’t deny

Won’t you tell me is that healthy, babe

But did you know, that when it

snows, my eyes become enlarged

and the light that you shine can be seen?

Baby, I compare you to a kiss

from a rose on the grave

The more I get of you

the stranger it feels, yeah

Now that your rose is in bloom

a light hits the gloom on the grave.

If this love is dead, kill me with a kiss.
