[Ensemble Stars] XXVeil – Midnight Butlers Lyrics (Rom/Eng)

Romanization:

(Makoto/Izumi)
Kegarenaki yuubi machi wo miorosu
Hakua no yakata wa hiru no kao
(Nazuna/Souma/Himeru)
Tsukau beki bishou okini mesu mama*
Odayaka na hibi wo todokemashou

(Makoto) Saa sotto mabuta wo toji
(Izumi) Sore de wa konya mo yoi yume wo
(Nazuna) Asa no hizashi ga hoo wo naderu made wa
(Souma/Himeru) Hitomi mo
(Nazuna) Tobira mo
(Souma/Himeru) Sono mama

(All) Yami ni ukabu hakua no sono ni
Manekarezaru kuroi kage
Nijuu go ji no nemurenu yakata
Aruji ni kawari mamorimashou

(All) Midnight butlers’ secret faces
Mayonaka sugi no anata no shiranai himitsu wo
Midnight butlers’ secret faces
Asa ga kuru made anata no soba de odorimashou

(All) Yoru wo tomosu hakua no sono de
Watashi tachi ga mukaemasu
Nijuu go ji ni mezameru akumu
Aruji wa keshite kizukanai

(Izumi) She’ll never notice
(Makoto) Kizukanai

English Translation:

(Makoto/Izumi)
The fine, elegant white mansion
That overlooks the town has two faces
(Nazuna/Souma/Himeru)
I’ll wear a smile, as you please
And keep your days peaceful

(Makoto) Gently close your eyes
(Izumi) Good night and sweet dreams
(Nazuna) Until the morning sun caresses your cheeks,
(Souma/Himeru) Your eyes
(Nazuna) The doors
(Souma/Himeru) Will remain undisturbed

(All) An uninvited black shadow
Visits the white mansion amid the dark
The mansion stays awake at 25 o’clock
I’ll protect it for you, Master

(All) Midnight butlers’ secret faces
You do not know what happens at dawn
Midnight butlers’ secret faces
I’ll dance by your side until the morning comes

(All) We will take care of
The white mansion that lights the night
The master will never notice
The nightmare that occurs at 25 o’clock

(Izumi) She’ll never notice
(Makoto) She’ll never notice

Notes:

I do not own a copy of the official lyrics.

A few things I learned while browsing through the Youtube comments:

Tsukau beki bishou okini mesu mama
*According to Youtube user ゆうくぅぅううん!!!, it might be “ishou” (clothes) instead of “bishou” (smile) because Nazuna touches his suit while singing the line and it might refer to the game feature where players can customize a character’s clothing. 
In this case, the meaning of the verse will change to “I’ll wear the clothes you want me to wear”

Twenty-five in Roman numerals is written as “XXV” and the shuffle unit’s name is “XXVeil.”

I also realized something thanks to SHELLY’s comment. The previous shuffle unit’s name is A to Z, and there are 26 letters in the English Alphabet. XXVeil makes references to the number 25, so maybe they’re counting down.
