GLAY - Young oh! oh! (english translation)

This might be a little off in places, but I think the basic idea is there.

Young oh! oh!

Music and Lyrics: TAKURO

Sometimes love does things like hurt us and burn us
It’ll suddenly make you start crying or raging
It’s selfish, isn’t it?
It’s selfish, isn’t it?

That’s right, there’s something going wrong in this world
But one day those words will become the wind
It’s absurd, isn’t it?
It’s absurd, isn’t it?
Oh

If what you’re most interested in is having someone to love
Even if they’re your type now, because these things change easily,
Make sure not to lose sight of the present*

That’s being young
That’s being young
Even if your youth gets in the way sometimes,
Even it sounds selfish to say,
Life is short
You’re feeling sad but,
You’re feeling sad but,
Even if there are nights when you just can’t take it,
When the tears that wet your cheeks have dried, you’ll fall in love again

Even if you think things are good now,
You’re worried about things like your future and anxious about your next step, aren’t you?
You’re worrying, aren’t you?

You’re impatient with these lukewarm feelings,
But we can’t decide on a path
You can’t sleep, can you?
You can’t sleep, can you?
Oh

I’m always thinking about the reckless and sensible boys and girls I see on the lawn next to mine
Treasure the lovers beside you!
Take good care of them, okay?

That’s being young
That’s being young
Even if your youth gets in the way sometimes,
Even it sounds selfish to say,
Life is short
You’re feeling sad but,
You’re feeling sad but,
Even if there are nights when you just can’t take it,
When the tears that wet your cheeks have dried, you’ll fall in love again

Notes:
*Lit. “Hold onto the now”, as in, don’t get too hung up on one person and waste your youth

Young oh! oh!

Koi ni kizuitari YAKEDO shitari

AA= - coLors (english translation)

I really like the simplicity of Takeshi's lyrics. He's so direct, and stuff like this is super easy to understand, even with my terrible Japanese skills.

coLors*

Music and Lyrics: Takeshi Ueda

Friends, let's start a riot
This is the color we want to show in the future:
No violence, no dictatorship, no lies and no nuclear
Let's go and change it; futuristic color
It's action for change, headed towards the future
A revolution, let me hear your voice
Stand up and let's advance!

Change the world!!!

Friends, let's gather our colors
They're the power we need to repaint our future
White, black, red, blue, yellow, green and more
Let's go and change it; futuristic color
It's action for change, headed towards the future
Stand up and let me hear your voice
Are you ready? Let's advance!

Change the world!!!

The world is colorful.
The future is colorful.
It must be colorful.

1, 2, 3, 4 Let me hear your voice, brother
It's your life, don't give up, and don't throw it away
We're waiting for you here
Together, let's go and change the color
What's your color?
No violence? No dictatorship? No lies? No nuclear?

What's your color?

Note:
*This is kind of irrelevant, but I used the American spelling of "color" in this because that's how it's written in the title and I thought I should be consistent. I'm just mentioning it because it looks so funny to me (<--I'm Canadian).

AA= - HUMANITY2 (english translation)

I'm not too sure about how this one turned out. Most of the song is pretty direct, but there are a few lines that might be off. 



The spoken and written bits from the PV are in [].

HUMANITY2

Music and Lyrics: Takeshi Ueda

[Hey, the dream we had at that time,
Do you remember it?]

And so, someone was knocking at the door*
I said, it's okay if the answer is always "yes"**
I felt like I could see your tears
Forget about it, shall we lick each others' wounds?

It's stupid, really, isn't it?

And so, we knocked on the door
And we thought our rivals were endless
We believed that the most important thing was ourselves
Before we knew it, we weren't able to see each other anymore

It was stupid, really, wasn't it?

We were dreaming
We were dreaming different dreams

Goodbye

"Bye-bye"

It's stupid, really, isn't it?
It's stupid, really, isn't it?
I ended up laughing, honestly
It's stupid, really, isn't it?

[Still, the dream is continuing,
And I get to keep dreaming it.]***

Notes:
*The door is metaphorical (just in case that's not clear)
**I'm not sure about this line
***I'm not sure about the last part

HUMANITY2

[Naa, ano toki ni mita yume,
Omae oboete iru ka?]

Soshite dareka ga DOA tataita
Kotae wa itsumo YES de ii tte
Kimi no namida o mita ki ga shita n da
Wasuresatte, KIZU nameaou ka?

Kudaranee na, hontou
Kudaranee na, hontou

Soshite orera, DOA tataita
Teki wa mugen ni iru to omotta
Daiji na no wa jibunra to shinjita n da
Itsunomanika mienakunatta

Kudaranee na, hontou
Kudaranee na, hontou

Ore-tachi wa yume mita n da
Betsu no yume mite ita n da

SA YO NA RA

"BAIBAI"

Kudaranee na, hontou
Kudaranee na, hontou
Waracchau na, hontou
Kudaranee na

[Soredemo mada yume no tsuzuki,
Ore wa misasete morau yo.]
