A.B.C-Z Rinne Lyric Translation

Screen Shot 2019-09-07 at 9.06.36 am

リンネ (rinne = reborn) is the song that Ebi produced themselves to celebrate their 10 year formation anniversary. I was really scared to translate Hasshi’s lyrics incase I couldn’t do a good job but I think they came out nicely. I think this is a kind of bitter-sweet song about coming to accept who you are. Instead of chasing after the impossible, forgive your past self and keep moving forward by doing what you can.

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translation


My rainbow

The way I hide


I know that there are impossible things

I won’t forget those days that we chased and ran after


I won’t keep chasing the moon anymore because I have a place to go

Wondering “What will tomorrow bring?” Even if it rains we’ve got a chance

We can use as many colours as we want in this seven coloured world

But if it’s us we’ll change it the colour of the stars



Have no meaning anymore


We were running blind but

The words that you bet on me


I won’t forget I won’t go searching The answer is always us

In the journey along the bumpy road to the sign of 5 stars


1 second felt like eternity


If I was forgiven to be reborn again

If I was forgiven to be reborn again


If the two of us held hands in that place one more time

We can say “Life is beautiful” by just doing this

If I was reborn  If I was forgiven

I will become human again, all the way to my heart
