Pieces of Summer

We sneaked out of class, just you and me
I desperately searched for the next thing to say
Thoughts piled up, losing courage
The flash of sunshine suddenly melts them away

I want to hide the feelings I can't put into words
I take your hand

You make me feel so happy

*chorus
I can feel the pieces of summer on my skin
I kicked opened the season's door
Anything soon seems possible
We want to be together, don't we
Even if tomorrow I will surely spend my days more ordinarily
I have become free and can fly far away
*chorus

I came out of the loophole I didn't know of
I start to want to know your secrets more

Never leave me
Linked hand in hand
The perspiration spreading

You make me feel so happy

The pieces of summer are bursting from my chest
Laughing as we can't relax
Feeling as though we are living right in the middle of it
Let's make a promise
Let's go to the beach when it's summertime
Let's play with fireworks and things
I'll never forget
Let's make 'now' again
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

*repeat chorus

Japanese source.
You can find romanization here.
Notes:
1. "Kakera" can be fragments, pieces or even rays! Rays sound nice too. Fragments don't really fit.
2. "The perspiration spreading". Very realistic, but kinda gross.
3. I'm not good with translating songs!
4. My friend said 胸にはじけて is not 'bouncing from my chest'. I agreed. Hahaha!

This song is super cheerful la, and I'm giggling at your comments except number 3 which I don't agree XD

you're welcome :DDD
lol S__g_p___e !

Yeah it's such a happy go lucky song! It's all the spacing and more poetic language in songs that made it harder for me. Honestly - online dictionaries aren't very helpful when it come to metaphors and stuff!

Me too! You must be busy with your real life and subbing. For me, I'm sitting here doing powerpoint slides and watching The Daily Show online :D

This will probably be the last clip I'll get involve in for awhile.. maybe will just stick to QC or something XDD I'm trying to brace myself for a hectic semester (if it ever comes, cos I'm not even sure what to expect yet). ooh, nice balance ;D same here! I was sitting through the whole day reading journal articles while watching youtube *shuuh*

I'm actually doing a compulsory year off in research hence the boorrring papers but also the opportunity to sit at a desk and sneak online *coughs* Enjoy yourself too ;D

Oh I see! I hope that timing for that clip will be real sailing!

Research! As long as it's something you're passionate about, I think it will be meaningful! Too bad I didn't know what I was doing in uni, so I didn't have any good projects to speak of.

Yeah!! I love watching shows online. The other day I told my friend about The Colbert Report. I love it!
