A.B.C-Z 新しい太陽 Lyric Translation

新しい太陽 (atarashii taiyou – new sun) is a song about a break-up that uses the rising sun as imagery of a new start. The whole song is very sweet and supportive. It’s about a couple who have had to break-up and that although it’s still painful there is a new sun waiting to shine on them both from now on. (Fumi’s big solo lines in this one are sooooo goooood 👌🏻 Fumi solo ballad in 2021 please 🙏)

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translaton

“If we let the night embrace us 

Maybe we can stay like this” I thought 

How many tears did we have to cry

To make tomorrow come, I wonder

At the exit of the long tunnel

Your eyes grow dark without realising

But the scenery you’ll see from here on

Will be new and bright 

If you’re ever feeling sad 

Look towards the night sky

Melt away your pain

With a brand new sun

We cuddled together in the shadows 

We longed to shine more than anyone 

Even though we gave up on pretending to be strong

We couldn’t just let it pass by 

A power point with a shocking story 

Like we drew it out from the source

The moment we seemed to become desperate 

We embraced the irritation as it was 

Stuck in place right in the middle

Towards the dark night sky

We don’t want to smother

That first light 

We started a little too late

And so we were strong 

Like a big, blooming flower

I watched you from afar 

To our place full of sunlight

Don’t run away anymore Don’t hide your eyes 

If you’re ever feeling sad…

If you’re ever feeling sad… 

If you’re ever feeling sad

Look towards the night sky

We will shine 

With a brand new sun

If you’re every feeling sad…

(See, towards the edge of the sky) 

If you’re ever feeling sad…
