A.B.C-Z Shuuden wo Koete 〜Christmas Night〜 Lyric Translation

Merry (slightly early) Christmas! 🎄 This is Ebi’s Christmas single from late 2017.  終電を超えて・shuuden wo koete means “beyond the last train”. It’s a song about not wanting to go home from a Christmas date and wanting to stay out until after the last train has run (aka spend the night together 😉)

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translation

Don’t worry about the clock! Change the subject to something like “I wonder if it’s going to snow?”

Don’t worry about the last train! I wonder if you’ll stay here with me if it snows?

 

Since we don’t need to make promises, I just want to be by your side right now

It’s more than romantic I wonder if I’m simply being selfish?

Christmas Night!

 

You can put your hand in my pocket and hold mine

You get cold easily so I’ll be the one to warm your hands

We can’t stay like this forever I know

So that we don’t need to make a promise for next time

Let’s stay out until after the last train

Merry Christmas

 

Don’t make that face I wonder if it will snow? I hear you laughing

Don’t think about chance because we were destined to fall in love with each other

 

Since we don’t need presents, all I want right now is you

It’s Santa Claus You can’t help shining like a jingle bell echoing into the night

Holy Night!

 

The fallen snow piles up and so that you don’t slip

You get flustered easily so I’ll be the one to hold your hand tight

I want to stay like this longer I’m praying

For the snow to stop us from being able to go home

 

The multicoloured Christmas lights just look like normal lights in front of you

I’ll muster my courage, look you in the eye and say it Let’s stay out until after the last train Until it’s not Christmas anymore

Don’t worry about the clock! It would be great if time would stop so it would never end

Don’t worry about the last train! I’ve decided our special evening will end when the street lights go out

 

You can put your hand in my pocket and hold mine

You get cold easily so I’ll be the one to warm your hands

We can’t stay like this forever I know

So that we don’t need to make a promise about next time

 

Holy Night!

Christmas Night!

 

The fallen snow piles up and so that you don’t slip

You get flustered easily so I’ll be the one to hold your hand tight

I want to stay like this longer I’m praying

For the snow to stop us from being able to go home

 

Let’s stay out until after the last train

 

Merry Christmas
