Ok so I’m sure a lot of you know this song and backwards and forwards by now, but in case you don’t…there’s a bit to be explained lol. So first, “yubikiri” literally translates to “finger cutting” and is the Japanese version of a pinky promise with the idea that if you break the promise then, well, you get it. The origins as to why it’s called this aren’t certain as far as I’ve read but there’s a theory that prostitutes in Yoshiwara aka. red light district would give their pinky to their lover as a show of devotion, taken from cadavers sometimes instead. Again, I can’t find great sources on the origins but they do align with this song pretty well and it’s pretty clear what’s going on in this PV from Project Diva. Also, I should explain that the very last line is “yubikitta” which was hard to convey all the meanings it holds in just four syllables but is essentially the past-tense of yubikiri, thus, can be read literally as “finger cut”. Yeah o have fun with that, I’m sure someone in the comments will have better knowledge of all this compared to me. I also took freedoms with the lyrics since I wanted it to have more impact in certain places and had to interpret things further than they were originally suggested. Basically what I do in every one of the covers lol so yeah.

Enough explaining, I keyed it down (-3) for anyone who will ask and slaved way too hard over those harmonies since my program kept crashing. Classes are hard and my brain is drained, so I’m gonna eat and pass out after this. Enjoy!

Tonight I give my body up to him

For you alone, I’d carry any sin

Trust me when I say,  you’re rare in every way

I prefer to speak my mind

These aren’t pretty lies, no

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah, I’m so in love with you and yet

All that I see, inside your eyes upon me

Are other people I’d rather see dead

Look at me, look at only me I beg

My heart will ring a sound but quietly

It bathes in black, with filthy chords I sing

The men, before, I knew yes they’re nothing next to you

I don’t care what past you keep

Future’s all I’m wanting

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah I wanna fill this hole of greed

All that is mine, my body, heart deep inside

Whatever I need to give to be free

Come excite me, lemme feel the burning heat

I lay inside an exhibition, small and dark

Holding a love covered in dust, just like my heart

“I don’t believe that this is true love” you would call

So I need to show you that I’m serious, I’ll show them all

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah I’d do it all for you and me

Hair that I lose, tearing my nails from the root

Cutting a pinky or two if it means

That these feelings carry for eternity

Pinky swear me

  1. I know this is about prostitutes and stuff, but to me in sounds kinda like a reverse yandere. One who would kill off any part of herself for her lover's sake, just to keep their eyes on them and no-one else…

  2. Hi Juby! I’m sorry I’m more than a year late, but I just wanted to say that this is one of my favorite covers you’ve done. It’s just soooo perfect!

  3. This song is not all about being a yandere! Did you see anything related to being a yandere beside the lyrics?! It's all about a Prostitute being in love. In Japanese culture if a Prostitute is in love they offer their pinky.

  4. It would be cool if the Miku part was more peppy, faster and guitar-y and the other girl’s is darker with more piano.

  5. The PV looks like two girls in love with the same guy. One is rich and one is poor. The rich one could give the guy everything, but the poor one gives her pinky.

    Or they could be gay.

  6. Am I the only one that thought she cut off her pinky, put it in the bento, and then put the carrot there to substitute her pinky?…No just me?

  7. Ya know, I don't know which is creepier. A person who mutilates themselves to present a body part as an oath of love, or a person who would ACCEPT that kind of confession.

  8. if this is about prostitution, then it really adds a new perspective to some doujins considering miku looks like a high school student here.

  9. 自分用歌詞失礼します

    嗚呼 あたし恋をして

    心の音がするわ 汚い掠れた声
    前の男の行方より 貴方の未来
    嗚呼 満たされるくらい
    さぁ もっと熱くさせてよ

    今 示しましょう

    嗚呼 あたし貴方なら
    交わして 変わらぬ愛を


  10. Because I like this song and I love your singing voice , glad to sing this song !
    Good luck !
    (I'm sorry if there are mistakes.)

  11. I'm trying to understand the full story. Both Miku and the black haired girl (Who I saw someone comment was Miku but I have no idea) are singing the song, but they seem like they're singing to each other. Oh wait, is it that Miku is how she seems but on the inside she's a psycho bitch? (The Black haired chick)

  12. Very useful^^ I’m going to subscribe to your channel 🙂
