Natsu no Kaze, Aki no Kaze

Summer Winds, Fall Winds

Romaji Lyrics English Translation

Manatsu no taiyou mabushi sugiru
Tomaranai tomarenai radiator full temp
Donna story egaiteyukou
Mijikai natsu futari no koi hajimatta

Hi ni yaketa kimi no hada ni
Hieta kakigoori tokete nakunaru
Kanjiteru mune no kodou
Machigattenai kono dokidoki dake wa

Aoi umi to natsu no kaze ni
Futari no koi wo azukete
Taiyou no shita kiss wo shite ne
Hanasanai de kimi ga suki yo

Manatsu no taiyou mabushi sugiru
Tomaranai tomarenai zutto futari de
Ima mo kimi ga watashi no tonari
Warawasete yo oikakete ne zutto zutto

Hi ni yaketa watashi no hada ni
Kimi no kage ga kasanatteru
Kanjiteru mune no kodou
Machigattenai kono dokidoki dake wa

Shiroi nami to natsu no kaze ni
Futari no koi wo azukete
Yume no you na kiss wo shite ne
Hanasanai de kimi ga suki yo

Yagate itsuka aki no kaze ni
Futari no koi ga sugitemo
Zutto watashi wo hanasanai de ne
Zutto zutto kimi ga suki yo
(Zutto hanasanai de!)

Kono natsu wa tsuzuiteyuku
Zutto zutto zutto

The midsummer sun is so dazzling
Its radiant heat never stopping, never ending
So let’s go write our own story
The summer’s short, but our love has just begun

I offer something cold to cool your sunburnt skin,
Until it melts away in the summer sun
It’s when I feel my heart pounding like this,
That I know this love I feel is true

As long as there’s blue seas and summer winds
They’ll keep our love alive
Come on and kiss me, while the sun’s shining bright!
And never let me go, because I love you!

The midsummer sun is so dazzling
It won’t stop, it never stops shining down on us
And you too are always right here by my side
So let’s laugh together, smile together, forever more

You drape your shadow across my body
To shield my sunburnt skin from the heat
It’s when I feel my heart pounding like this,
That I know this love I feel is true

As long as there’s white waves and summer winds
They’ll keep our love alive
Come on and kiss me, make this my perfect dream
And never let me go, because I love you!

And when the fall winds finally blow in
And our summer romance comes to an end
I don’t want you to ever let me go
Because I’ll always, always love you!
(Never let me go!)

And then our summer will last forever…
And ever, and ever, and ever…

This song is torturous and miserable lyrically in addition to being sung – at least in part – by Chigusa. I’ve tried to make some of its bizarre metaphors not sound like they were concocted from the mind of an uncommon noun fetishist, but I fear it may have sapped my muse away on this one, alas.

I also posted up a joke version of this on Twitter when I was complaining – as one does on the internet – about having to do it at all. If it may amuse you, and I do highlight ‘may’, it can be found here.
