あの日君は目も向けずに
No, uh uh uh uh no, uh uh uh uh
興味ないと話してたね eh eh eh eh Why
私の声に微笑んでキスをくれた君は
もう声さえ聞きたくないと背を向けるの


これ以上 苦しめないで
どうして 私を捨て
この声をもっと高く高く
音を止めないで Everybody time to rock

すべて Pump up the volume Up up
消してよ Pump up the volume Up up
思い出す度、まだ ah 泣いて eh eh eh oh
まだUh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh
まだUh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh

ありのままの私さえも
No, uh uh uh uh no, uh uh uh uh
興味のない冷めた君ね eh eh eh eh Why

君の視線が苦しくて張り裂けそうになる
ねぇ心に傷を残し消えて(行)かないで

これ以上 苦しめないで
どうして 私を捨て
この声をもっと高く高く
音を止めないで Everybody time to rock

すべて Pump up the volume Up up
消してよ Pump up the volume Up up
思い出す度、まだ ah 泣いて eh eh eh oh
まだUh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh
まだUh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh

ねぇ君は
私を知らない
何も知らずに私を置いて

Lie lie lie lie Lie lie lie lie Lie lie lie lie

すべて Pump up the volume Up up
消してよ Pump up the volume Up up
思い出す度、まだ ah 泣いて eh eh eh oh
まだUh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh
まだUh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh

That day, you talked to me without interest
No, uh uh uh uh no, uh uh uh uh
Without even meeting my eyes; eh eh eh eh Why
The you who smiled at my voice and kissed me has
Already turned your back, not wanting to even hear my voice


Don’t torture me any more than this
Why did you throw me away
Raise this voice higher and higher
Don’t stop the music, everybody time to rock

Erase—Pump up the volume Up up
Everything—Pump up the volume Up up
Whenever I remember, I still, ah, cry; eh eh eh oh
Still; Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh
Still; Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh

It’s the you whose become cold
No, uh uh uh uh no, uh uh uh uh
Uninterested even in the me that’s myself; eh eh eh eh Why

Your gaze is so bitter I feel like I’m being split
Hey, please don’t leave a scar in my heart and then disappear

Don’t torture me any more than this
Why did you throw me away
Raise this voice higher and higher
Don’t stop the music, everybody time to rock

Erase—Pump up the volume Up up
Everything—Pump up the volume Up up
Whenever I remember, I still, ah, cry; eh eh eh oh
Still; Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh
Still; Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh

Hey, you
Don’t know me
You put me aside not knowing anything

Lie lie lie lie Lie lie lie lie Lie lie lie lie

Erase—Pump up the volume Up up
Everything—Pump up the volume Up up
Whenever I remember, I still, ah, cry; eh eh eh oh
Still; Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh
Still; Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh

Japanese version. Haha. Most ‘Japanese version’ songs by Korean artistes have the same lyrics anyway, but this one doesn’t. Anyway, this is the first time I’ve come across a song with lyrics that are both simple and complicated. I don’t believe that every line in this song is written in perfect Japanese, and I think there might be some contextual errors here and there. But I’m not gonna assume that there are, in case there isn’t. Still.

For example, ‘mada’. It means ‘still’ or ‘not yet’, and it sounds very close to ‘mata’ which means ‘again’. I do believe that ‘mata’ suits the context more, since ‘still’ only works for continuous tense (I don’t think you can cry continuously), and ‘not yet’ just sounds wrong. Still, since that’s what was used, that’s how I’ll translate it, so there’s a lot of interpretation in the translation.

 

Right. See you~
