「Bubble Gum」有岡大貴

Dai-chan’s solo is super cute, all about psyching himself up to tell the girl he likes how he feels. There are lots of cute turns of phrase that focus around the bubble gum theme which I really like. 

Original Japanese → UtaTen


I’m sure I haven’t told you yet I don’t have the words

The scents swell and burst in these bitter sweet days

 

My heart leapt I was a little nervous

Wrapped up in the wish to be mixed up with you

 

Let’s get poppin’

So that I can etch these memories into my heart where they’ll never fade

To a world that glitters as much as we gently bite into it

 

Bubble Gum

 

In the boring times with the same old scenes

So that I can fill them with colours I’ll mix the Flavor together

 

“A dream where we lose to no-one”

I’ll show you time and time again

Before it gets crumpled up

I’ll change my weak heart to a brave one

 

Let’s get poppin’

So that I can etch these memories into my heart where they’ll never fade

So that I can be done with these feelings that aren’t quite enough

 

Bubble Gum

 

“A dream where we lose to no-one”

So that we can keep chasing it time and time again

Until the end of the end

I’ll breath in deep with all my strength

 

Let’s get poppin’

This acquired taste that can’t be copied

It’s tightly wrapped up my racing heart

 

Your smile, your smile fills me up

So happy I could pop…

 

Let’s get poppin’

“Next time and the time after that, time and time again”

Let’s picture this never ending dream together forever…

 

Your smile, your smile fills me up

So happy I could pop…
