"Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni" (ひぐらしのなく頃に "When the Cicadas Cry") is a song written and performed by Japanese pop artist Eiko Shimamiya for the anime series of the same name, serving as the first opening theme. It is seemingly from the perspective of Rena Ryuuguu as she obsesses over another person.

Lyrics

Furimuita sono ushiro no
(Shoumen daare?)
Kurayami ni tsume o tatete
(Yoru o hikisaita)

Amadare wa chi no shizuku to natte hoo o tsutai ochiru
Mou doko ni mo kaeru basho ga nai nara

Kono yubi tomare watashi no yubi ni
Sono yubi goto tsurete tte ageru
Higurashi ga naku akazu no mori e
Atomodori wa mou dekinai

Hitori-zutsu kesarete yuku
(Aoi honoo)
Kurayami no sono mukou ni
(Asa wa mou konai)

Kagami no naka de ugomeki nobashite kuru musuu no te de
Saa dareka o koko e izanai nasai

Oni-san kochira te no naru hou e
Donna ni nigete mo tsukamaete ageru
Higurashi ga naku kemonomichi kara
Kikoete ita koe wa mou nai

Kono yubi tomare watashi no yubi ni
Sono yubi goto tsurete tte ageru
Higurashi ga naku akazu no mori
Atomodori wa mou dekinai

Oni-san kochira te no naru hou e
Donna ni nigete mo tsukamaete ageru
Higurashi ga naku kemonomichi kara
Kikoete ita koe wa mou nai

Behind where I looked back
(Who’s in the front?)
In the dark, I sank in my nails
(And tore apart the night)

The raindrops turn into droplets of blood and travel down my cheeks
If there’s no place for me to return to anywhere anymore

Take these fingers, my fingers
I’ll take you away with all of your fingers
To the unopened forest where cicadas cry
I can’t turn back anymore

Being extinguished one by one
(The blue flames)
Beyond the darkness
(The morning won’t come anymore)

Inside the mirror, with countless wriggling hands reaching out
Come on, lure someone here

Oni-san, come here, to where my hands clap
No matter how you flee, I’ll capture you
From the animal trail where cicadas cry
The voice that I heard is no more

Take these fingers, my fingers
I’ll take you away with all of your fingers
To the unopened forest where cicadas cry
I can’t turn back anymore

Oni-san, come here, to where my hands clap
No matter how you flee, I’ll capture you
From the animal trail where cicadas cry
The voice that I heard is no more

Furimuita sono ushiro no
(Shoumen daare?)
Kurayami ni tsume o tatete
(Yoru o hikisaita)

Amadare wa chi no shizuku to natte hoo o tsutai ochiru
Mou doko ni mo kaeru basho ga nai nara

Kono yubi tomare watashi no yubi ni
Sono yubi goto tsurete tte ageru
Higurashi ga naku akazu no mori e
Atomodori wa mou dekinai

Behind where I looked back
(Who’s in the front?)
In the dark, I sank in my nails
(And tore apart the night)

The raindrops turn into droplets of blood and travel down my cheeks
If there’s no place for me to return to anywhere anymore

Take these fingers, my fingers
I’ll take you away with all of your fingers
To the unopened forest where cicadas cry
I can’t turn back anymore
