BAND-MAID – Don’t Apply the Brake

Lyrics: Kawashima Daria
Song: Kawaguchi Atsushi
Translation: Kafka

I must do all the things I want to do
In just a limited amount of time
I’ll just pursue my dreams
Since falling in love is a chore

I won’t stop, I won’t lose, I won’t die out
Everyday shines too bright
My mind is out of control
Quite a vague future I have

I got it. Please, don’t apply the brake
I’ll push through today, not tomorrow
decide it! don’t tell a lie under (the) sunshine
I’ll just live an honest life as liars deserve karma

Don’t proclaim such conjecture on useless trivia
That guy is quite a tough one – is my selfishness the reason?

I don’t need it, I don’t care, I won’t turn back
Staying awesome at all times
I tried to listen attentively
To the voice of my heart

I got it. please. do not apply the brake
Today is a great day that I don’t mind dying tomorrow
decide it! don’t tell a lie under (the) sunshine
No one knows what the future holds, so I’ll love this moment

I got it. please. do not apply the brake
I’ll push through today, not tomorrow
decide it! don’t tell a lie under (the) sunshine
I’ll just live an honest life as liars deserve karma

Kanji:

限られた時間の中
やりたい放題やるしかない
恋するとか かったるいし
あたしはあたしの夢を追う

止めない 負けない くたばんない
毎日が眩しいの
頭ん中 制御不能よ
曖昧な未来

I got it. please. do not apply the brake
明日じゃない 今日を走り抜けていく
decide it! don’t tell a lie under (the) sunshine
嘘つきはバチがあたる まっすぐ生きるだけ

くだらない常識なんて 振りかざして計らないで
あいつはタフな奴 原因は私のわがまま?

イラナイ 知らない 戻らない
いつだってカッコよく
聞き耳を たててみたの
心の声に

I got it. please. do not apply the brake
明日死んでもいいと思える今日がいい
decide it! don’t tell a lie under (the) sunshine
一寸先は闇と この時を愛してる

I got it. please. do not apply the brake
明日じゃない 今日を走り抜けていく
decide it! don’t tell a lie under (the) sunshine
嘘つきはバチがあたる まっすぐ生きるだけ

BAND-MAID – Beauty and the beast

Lyrics: Kawashima Daria
Song: Kawazoe Hiroki
Translation: Kafka

My capillaries are getting hot, I was a weak and anemic child
oh 3.2.1 go born… I believe it, the value of existing

The misfortunes of a beauty and myself of tomorrow
Clashed and collapsed, and it might be farewell to you too

In a society where no one can endure being alone
More than anyone, I want you to stay with me

Why? Why? Why? …more than anyone

Don’t cave in, it’s not like you can lock yourself
I’ll just get irritated by the cons of your gallantry
I want to hit you, I don’t care if you’ll forgive me or not

Look! Beauty and beast, I don’t have time to fall in love
don’t stop! the dream in my heart won’t be fulfilled unless I bring you down
It’s boring in the city, laugh with this plain woman
oh yeah if you are a man, then become stronger and stay with me always

Nervous breakdown, I’m getting sleepy, I was diligent as I was rebellious
oh.3.2.1 go born… I’m not feeling it, the feeling of satisfaction

People say “Haste makes waste”, but I cannot do it as it is too slow for me
But by just slashing through, I’m just living in a straight line

I’m soaked by the rain in this town
Yikes – the last train, I ran as fast as I can

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! I made it in time

With soaked feet, I once again ran
Past the ticket gate and to your side
How come I can’t leave you alone? well, whatever

Look! Beauty and beast, I don’t have time to fall in love
don’t stop! the dream in my heart won’t be fulfilled unless I bring you down
It’s boring in the city, laugh with this plain woman
oh yeah if you are a man, then become stronger and stay with me always

Kanji:

毛細血管 熱くなる 幼少期は 貧血 虚弱なタイプ
oh.3.2.1 go born 信じてるよ 存在価値

美人薄命と 明日のあたしは
ぶっ倒れて 君とおさらばかもね

一人じゃイヤ 耐えられない社会
一緒にいたい 誰よりも

なんで? なんで? なんで? 誰よりも

凹んでんなよ ガキじゃあるまいし
潔の悪さ イライラしてくる
殴りたいけど 許してるワケは どうだっていい

Look! Beauty and the beast 恋してる暇はありません
don’t stop! 胸にある 夢なら かなえなけりゃ 張っ倒す
It’s boring in the city ありふれた女と笑ってよ
oh yeah. 男なら もっと強くなって ずっとそばにいてね

神経衰弱 眠くなる 反抗期は 律儀にこなしたタイプ
oh.3.2.1 go born 感じてない 満足感

急がば回れと トロ臭くて無理
ぶっちぎるだけ 直線で生きてく

街には雨 ずぶ濡れになる
終電がヤバイ 突っ走る

いいね いいね いいね 間に合った

改札ぬけて アイツのもとまで
も一度走る ヌタヌタの足で
どうして奴を 放っとけないのか? どうだっていい

Look! Beauty and the beast 恋してる暇はありません
don’t stop! 胸にある 夢なら かなえなけりゃ 張っ倒す
It’s boring in the city ありふれた女と笑ってよ
oh yeah. 男なら もっと強くなって ずっとそばにいてね
