"A Cruel Dream" (残酷な夢, zankokuna yume) is a song in Death Note: The Musical.

OverviewEdit

After finding the Death Note and meeting Rem, Misa Amane is intent on finding Kira. With some reluctance, Rem tells Misa about the shinigami eyes and that it will cost Misa half her remaining lifespan. Misa insists on the trade, but Rem doesn't think it's worth it because Kira is dangerous, and they sing this song.

The song is later reprised after Misa and Light meet, sung by Rem and Ryuk. Rem's growing feelings for Misa are apparent, and at the end of the song, Ryuk reminds Rem not to break the rule about helping humans.

English versionEdit

The song was originally written in English, but an English-language version has not been released.

Japanese versionEdit

Japanese lyricsEdit

[Rem]
熱い想いそれは幻だ
自分騙す危険な罠だ

[Misa (spoken)]
「キラに会いたいの」

[Rem]
海の深さ まだ知らぬ内に
愛の夢に絡め取られて

愛などいつか消え去る
残酷な夢
望みくだかれ嘆くのは
愚か者だけだ

[Misa]
熱い想いこれは本物よ
生きる意味を教えてくれた

[Rem]
残る命半分にしても
愛は

[Misa]
いいの 裏切られても

[Rem & Misa]
理屈など通用しない

[Rem]
残酷な夢

[Rem & Misa]
戻る道さえ失い

[Misa]
堕ちてゆくだけ
愛は生きる力

[Rem]
絶望の元
逃げるが勝ち

[Misa]
逃げられない
心は薔薇色 夢の世界

[Rem]
嘆きと背中合わせだ
理屈など通用しない
残酷な夢

[Rem & Misa]
戻る道さえ失い

[Misa]
与え合い

[Rem]
奪い合い

[Rem & Misa]
堕ちてゆく深く
堕ちてゆく深く

[Misa (spoken)]
「目が欲しい」
