Morning Musume - Brainstorming

Postby Sohee » Sun Apr 28, 2013 11:23 am

Brainstorming
Note: I know UFP did an official translation for the A-sides of this single and maybe that's completely accurate, but I went ahead and translated them anyway lol.

Three good things have happened, I feel kinda great
In addition to that I have a feeling I'll be really lucky soon
It's going to happen this weekend, I'm sure
I wonder if I'll meet someone

You shouldn't make a fragile girl cry
You shouldn't make a fragile girl cry

Throw away all the stress that's been piling up right here and now
Shouldn't we live cleverly
This is my life

Some get complimented just by doing things normally
Shouldn't we live cleverly and overcome the first difficulties
Stand proud

Come on, dance
Come on, hold your head high
It's time to go

One day, we'll surely succeed and tomorrow there will be new challenges
There are more hardworkers out there

Don't slack off, don't sulk, don't shut yourself off, come here, GO GO
Live with your time
After all, some good things happened, I feel kinda great

Either way, I had a good dream, I feel kinda great
I might as well make it come true
My whole next week is filled with plans
I'm living life to the fullest

You shouldn't make a fragile girl cry
You shouldn't make a fragile girl cry

I've made lots of friends at my cultural activities
Shouldn't we live bravely
This is my life

Some are unfortunately shy of strangers
Shouldn't we live bravely and once go along this road
Never give up

Make sure again that you don't let your guard down
It's time to go

One day we'll surely be touched and I'm sure we'll get a peace of mind tomorrow
There will always be some resistance out there

Don't put on airs, don't tense up, don't get timid, come here, GO GO
Don't miss the signs
After all, some good things happened, I feel kinda great

Kimi sae ireba nanimo iranai (As long as I have you, I don't need anything else)
Note: Same story as for "Brainstorming".

We're free, right? But even so we're constrained
Hearing "You can't do this" "You can't do that" makes me frustrated

Falling in love, experiencing anguish and learning about the pricelessness of love
gives you the experience you need to understand the meaning of gentleness

Having dreams and learning about hard work, failure and loneliness
helps you realize your own limitations

I almost forget about that day when we were both so scared
We gave each other a deep promise that night when we embraced each other so tightly

As long as you're here I don't need anything else
No one should ever take away this girl's smile
Even if times change, I won't
Slowly our eyes close and we kiss
The sun makes a beautiful appearance today too
Almost as though it's giving us its blessings

We're the hope for the future, aren't we?
Sometimes we fail and sometimes we succeed, that's how we grow

Falling in love, experiencing anguish and learning about the pricelessness of love
gives you the experience you need to understand the meaning of gentleness

Having dreams and learning about hard work, failure and loneliness
helps you realize your own limitations

You made my eyes glisten as you told me about your plans for the future
Just listening to you talk, filled me with so much emotion I became close to tears

As long as you're here I don't need anything else
No one can decide our future for us
Even though we'll get older, our love won't change
Starting over, once again we kiss
Today too, I gently whispered "I love you" again
while wishing that our reality one day will come true

A B C D E-cha E-cha shitai (A B C D I want to make out)
Note: ""dokidoki" is an onomatopeia for heartbeat, I left that in as there's no real good translation for it in English as " thump-thump; bang-bang" doesn't quite sound right.

I love you, I love you, I love you
everytime we meet I get nervous
my heart goes dokidokidokidoki

I'll do what you tell me to
I simply just love you
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE ME DO
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE ME DO

You ask me to put on a pretty nail polish
even my own preferences have changed to go with yours

A B C D I want to make out
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Kiss
Eyes, tears, smiles, secrets

A B C D have a good dream, okay
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 (kiss)
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you

Quickly, I quickly wanna see you
but, but I'm nervous
my heart goes dokidokidokidoki

I want to know what you're feeling
but I can't ask, I love you
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE ME DO
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE ME DO

Somehow, it seems my way of talking has changed
Yeah, somehow I feel as though I can afford to do so

A B C D I want to make out
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Kiss
Tonight, tomorrow, the future, secrets

A B C D even on those days when I've said too much
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 (kiss)
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you

Tokimeku Tokimeke (Fluttering Heartbeat)

baby Today I'll get serious
baby I can't be stopped
baby I've decided to
baby run down my own path

my heartbeat flutter, this is my life, my time
my heartbeat flutter, this is my life, my time
my heartbeat flutter, this is my life, my time
my heartbeat flutter, this is my life, my time

I used to pretend to be strong and just put on airs,
saying impertinent things and pretending to be bored
A complete good-for-nothing

Just by pretending to be cute I'd get compliments
and it seemed that everything would go just fine
But that's not how it is
I know this, despite being confident

This is how it is!
I was just feeling too lonely, that's why I acted spoiled
You were just too nice, that's why I depended on you
I just wanted you to plan things, that's why I was being unreasonable
I just wanted you to scold me, that's why I asked for unreasonable favors
Yes, that's how it is

baby Today I'll get serious
baby I can't be stopped
baby I've decided to
baby run down my own path

my heartbeat flutter, this is my life, my time
my heartbeat flutter, this is my life, my time
my heartbeat flutter, this is my life, my time
my heartbeat flutter, this is my life, my time

My nervousness crossed the line
and suddenly I cried
And it's nothing like a youth drama
where you'd be cool, either

You just keep nodding like you understand
How much do you get?
We're not close enough so I can show my true feelings yet
Are we? How is it?

This is how it is!
I only persisted because this is too frustrating
I only presisted because there's a future
Because I get it, I didn't show my true feelings
Because you made me take the initiative, I didn't show you
Yeah, that's how it is

Itsumo to Onnaji Seifuku de (In the same uniform as always)

Carelessly I looked out through the window
I want to see you, I wonder what you're doing
I pay no attention to class
I'm a first-year student in love

OH I LOVE YOU
SO I NEED YOU
I want to kiss your cheek
It seems as though everything in this world is sparkling

We decide to meet at the station like always
and that becomes our date for today
Though I just have about an hour before dinner

Even though I'm in the same uniform as always
I make sure to neatly fix my appearance
even if you don't notice, I'm always stylish

Lunch-break is finally over
but it feels like the day will be long from afternoon too
6th period is P.E!
I hate sweating

OH I LOVE YOU
SO I NEED YOU
I want to hold on to you tightly
Love makes one's heart skip like this, huh

I stop by at the convenience store I always go to
and buy the latest type of lip gloss
Then I straighten my hair with my hair iron

With your never-changing voice, make me laugh a lot today too
I'll etch all of it to my chest and face tomorrow too

It's that time when we always have to say goodbye
I'm sure I like him more than he likes me
I don't want to go home
I want to be with him all the time

Somehow I'm more sad today than usual
Today I love him too much, more than usual
The goodbye kiss on his cheek, today I make it long

Rock no teigi (The definition of rock)

Standing in front of the mirror
it's strange how somedays I'm courageous and somedays not
It varies

But even so, despite not having 100% confidence
I cover it up with the way I fix my bangs

I want a stimuli strong enough to make miracles happen
but even so I live everyday simply

Living while being manipulated by some guy
That's definitely not happening

I can't live life in a cool way
but being confused about how to live is also just like me
I want enough confidence to walk through life
in the same simple clothes I wear when I go
to the convenience store in the middle of the night

Being without make-up after my bath
I tell myself to become prettier

I have so many complexes it's laughable
and I want to scream out loud to avoid them

Though it's something everyone would know
I don't want to answer honestly to easy questions
But I can't afford to suddenly get asked something difficult

I can't live life in a cool way
And I don't know how to live with someone but that's fine
Honestly I'd prefer just to be in jeans rather than being all dressed up
But, I'll dress up tonight as well
