曲：中岛美雪 词：中岛美雪 口をきくのが うまくなりました どんな酔いしれた人にでも 口をきくのが うまくなりました ルージュひくたびにわかります あの人追いかけて この町へ着いた頃は まだルージュはただひとつ うす桜 あの人追いかけて くり返す 人違い いつか泣き慣れて 口をきくのが うまくなりました ルージュひくたびに わかります つくり笑いが うまくなりました 心慣じめない人にでも つくり笑いが うまくなりました ルージュひくたびに わかります ※生まれた時から 渡り鳥もわかる気で つばさをつくろう事も 知るまいに 気がつきゃ鏡も 忘れかけた うす桜 おかしな色と笑う つくり笑いが うまくなりました ルージュひくたびに わかります※ (※くり返し)
