“18sai no Kisetsu”
(“The Season of 18-Year-Olds”)
Lyrics: Miura Yoshiko
Composition: Taisei
Arrangement: Takahashi Yuichi
Romanization: projecthello.com
Translation: Suishou Yuki (me)

[Translation]
One day is like a second, and one month is like one day
Like light passing by, and I’m getting dizzy
Because of my desired dream, I’m fixing my eyes only on tomorrow
But occasionally I have to rest–I think I might be running out of steam
At a time like that, suddenly a friend’s voice is on my cellphone
This Sunday, everyone gathers around

For a person who is alone, everything becomes impossible
In one year, I understood little. Only a little, but…
I can’t say it well, but thank you for these gentle feelings
Seeing everyone’s faces; if they’re crying, what do I do?
As for me, I wonder what I can give?
If something or another changed a little, what would it be?

One day is like a second, and one month is like one day
And so the season of eighteen year olds is surely important, right?

Joy, sorrow, gentleness, pain, and other things
Show up in the heart of the person who quietly looks on
Every day, yes, I’m becoming a new me
I got a happy feeling when I sensed that.
As for me, I wonder what I can give?
If something or another changed a little, what would it be?

One day is like a second, and one month is like one day
And so the season of eighteen year olds is surely important, right?
The season of eighteen year olds

[Romaji]
Ichi nichi ga ichi byou de Hitotsuki ga Ichi nichi mitai
Hikari no you Sugite yukimasu KURA KURA shichatteru
Nozondeta Yume dakara Ashita dake Mitsumete iru yo
Demo tama ni Oyasumi shinakya Ikigire shichau kamo
Sonna toki Fui ni KEITAI ni tomodachi no koe
Minna atsumaru yo Kondo ni nichiyoubi

Ningen wa hitori de wa Nani mo sou Dekinai koto ga
Ichi nen de Sukoshi wakatta Honno sukoshi dakedo…
Umaku ienai kedo Arigatou Yasashii kimochi
Minna no kao mite Naitara doushiyou
Watashi wa Nani wo Agerareru ka na?
Nanika ga Sukoshi Kawatta nara Sore wa nani?

Ichi nichi ga ichi byou de Hitotsuki ga Ichi nichi mitai
Dakara sou Kitto daiji ne Juuhassai no kisetsu

Yorokobi ya kanashimi ya Yasashisa ya Setsunai kokoro
Jitto sou Mitsumeru hito no Mune ni yatte kuru no
Mainichi ga Sou yo Atarashii jibun ni nareru
Sore wo kanjita toki Shiawase na kibun yo
Watashi wa Nani wo Agerareru ka na?
Nanika ga Sukoshi Kawatta nara Sore wa nani?

Ichi nichi ga ichi byou de Hitotsuki ga Ichi nichi mitai
Dakara sou Kitto daiji ne Juuhassai no kisetsu
Juuhassai no kisetsu
