Rosetta

The Rosetta CD single cover, as seen in the original website's soundtrack page

Rosetta
was the opening theme song for the "first" season of the Papillon Rose web series. A re-recorded version served as the opening of the OVA and the DVD-Box set version the New season.

Development Edit

Originally Titled "Papillon Warriors", Rosetta was the second song to be written and recorded for the Papillon Rose webseries, following Everlasting Love.

Versions Edit

The original version of the song was recorded in 2001 after the original website's audition call for performers and voice actors. Composed and arranged by Kuri-Zill and performed by Bouquet du Rose, the song's TV-size edition was downloadable from the original website. In celebration of the new year's eve and Papillon Rose's increasing fandom numbers, the full version of the song was downloadable for a limited amount of time. This version is featured in the Papillon Rose collectable CD-Rom as well as the first Original soundtrack disk.

The song was re-recorded for the Papillon Rose OVA, sung by Yuki Masuda. This version was also used for the DVD-Box set versions of the New season. This version is featured in the Movie and OVA final selection soundtrack disk.

Other Uses Edit

The original version, while not used in the OVA, it served as background music for the OVA promotional web video. The OVA also uses part of the instrumental for Papillon Rose's introduction.

A CD-ROM distributed together with telephone cards contained a promotional music video for the OVA with extra footage featuring the full version of the re-recorded Rosetta. It was appropriately titled "Roseta Promotion movie".

Lyrics Edit

Lyrics were written by Rita, under the alias of Mahiru Sonoda.

Japanese Edit

夜の都会 世界は眠り
ざわめきもささやきも
嘘が塗りかえる

イルミネーション 迷宮の果て
舞い降りた闇の蝶
羽根を今閉じる

ただあなたを求めるのは
イケナイことですか?
ずっと からだの
奥で燃えてるエナジー

唇 吐息さえ
あなたには届かないの
胸詰まる 愛の行方 
鍵を握ってる
あなた次第なのだから

夜の帳 身にまとわせて
輝いた摩天楼
今日も見つめてる

きらめきさえ 涙にかえて
叫び出す衝動を 力に変えてく
ただあなたを感じるのは
イケナイことですか?
心 からだも
全て捧げてぶつけたい

見つめて 抱きしめて
もっとあたしを受け入れて
もう何も 言わないで
言葉なんてひとときの
幻想なのだから

唇 吐息さえ
あなたには届かないの
胸詰まる 愛の行方 
鍵を握ってる
あなた次第なのだから

English TranslationEdit

Night City
The world is sleeping
Murmurs and whispers
Blowing away the lies

Lights in the end of the labyrinth
The butterfly of darkness descends
Closing its wings

I just want you
Is it a bad thing?
My body deeply
Is burned up with energy

Even my lips' sigh
Isn't able to reach you
Clogged in (my) breasts
The fate of (our) love
Holding the key for us to be together soon

The curtains of night
Are (my) clothes to wear
The shining skyscappers
Today are in my gaze

Sea of sparkles
Instead of tears
An urge to burst into crying
Its power will trigger a change

I just want to feel you
Is it a bas thing?
Even all my mind and body
I want to devote everything to you

Look (at me), hug (me)
Accept me more
Don't speak
(These) moments do not (need) words
Because of the (moment's) fantasy

Even my lips' sigh
Isn't able to reach you
Clogged in (my) breasts
The fate of (our) love
Holding the key for us to be together soon
