「Last Dance」Lyric Translation

“Last Dance” is by far my favourite song from the Lucky-Unlucky/Ai Dake singles. It’s a beautiful song about not wanting to let go of a love that has fallen apart. The vocals are so beautiful and chilling (Especially the Yama-Yuya-Yabu parts). I hadn’t seen an English translation for this yet so here is my version. Please listen to the song as you read these lyrics and all cry along with me 😭

「Last Dance」- Hey! Say! JUMP (English Translation)

 

Tick tock The rhythm beating in my chest brings back so many memories of you that it’s tearing me apart

Zig Zag To the end of that wandering night I don’t know where you are

 

I looked at the sky and a line connects the stars

We’re far apart but it still feels like you’re here with me

I can’t touch you and when morning comes you won’t be here anymore

Tell me where you are

 

Drawn together by gravity

Completely broken by reality

Amidst the fading light

 

If I find you in the glow of the moonlight I’ll hold your hand and ask for one last dance

I devote my life to just hold you tight in this melody I wish I was there

I don’t wanna say “goodbye” to those promises

As the vision of you melts into the night I close my eyes

 

Like a dream that’s not a dream you aren’t here anymore

There is no meaning without you so I cry along with the falling stars

Maybe I’ll say something if I meet you again somewhere

Tell me where you are

 

Replaying the apology

and the tears from that day What do you mean?

Following that dim light

 

The moonlight glows and when I see your face in that blue tinted room I wipe away your last tears

In this memory that floats and fades away Won’t you stay with me?

It will never be the same just like this message I can’t say

As these thoughts come to mind in my sleep I close my eyes

 

I don’t care even if these feeling never reach that distant face

I love you, I love you, I love you That’s all

Soon the moonlight will vanish and if I chase after and catch you

I’ll hold you tight until we are swallowed up by the morning

 

If I find you in the glow of the moonlight I’ll hold your hand and ask for one last dance

I devote my life to just hold you tight in this melody I wish I was there

 

If I find you in the glow of the moonlight I’ll hold your hand and ask for one last dance

I devote my life to just hold you tight in this melody I wish I was there

I don’t wanna say “goodbye” to those promises

As the vision of you melts into the night I close my eyes
