AKB48 “Heavy Rotation” – Lyrics Translation

heavy_rotation

Today’s translation is an AKB48 song. It is translated more literally rather than poetically for understanding, and some of the subjects remain vague. I hope it still manages to be readable!

(ヘビーローテーション) Heavy Rotationby AKB48

The format is:
Kanji
Romaji
English

Enjoy!

1!2!3!4!

I WANT YOU!
I NEED YOU!
I LOVE YOU!

頭の中 ガンガン鳴ってるMUSIC
atama no naka gangan natteru MUSIC
Like MUSIC that pounds inside my head

HEAVY ROTATION

POPCORN が弾けるように
「好き」という文字が踊る
顔や声を思うだけで
いても立ってもいられない
こんな気持ちになれるって
僕はついているね

POPCORN ga hajikeru yoo ni
‘suki’ toyuu moji ga odoru
kao ya koeo omou dake de
ite mo tatte mo irarenai
konna kimochi ni narerutte
boku wa tsuite iru ne

The word “love” dances
like exploding popcorn
I cannot help but get excited
WHen I think about your face and voice
These feelings make me feel
Extremely attached

I WANT YOU!
I NEED YOU!
I LOVE YOU!

君に会えて どんどん近づくその距離に
kimi ni ae te dondon chikazuku sono kyori ni
The time to meet you rapidly draws near

MAX HIGH TENSION

I WANT YOU!
I NEED YOU!
I LOVE YOU!

HEARTの奥 ジャンジャン溢れる 愛しさが
HEART no oku janjan afureru itoshi sa ga
The deep GONGONG of love overflowing within my heart is

HEAVY ROTATION

人は誰も一生のうち
何回愛せるのだろう
たった一度忘れられない
恋ができたら満足さ
そんなトキメキを感じて
花はほころぶのかな?

hito wa dare mo isshou no uchi
nan kai aiseru no darou
tatta ichido wasurerarenai
koi ga deki tara manzoku sa
sonna tokimeki wo kanji te
hana wa hokorobu no kana ?

How many times do people fall in love
with each other in their life time?
It is satisfying being able to feel just
one unforgettable love
That throbbing feeling
that frays around the edges of flowers

I FEEL YOU!
I GOT YOU!
I HOPE YOU!

夢の中で だんだん大きくなってゆく
yume no naka dedandan ookiku natte yuku
Getting bigger within my dreams

僕のIMAGINATION
boku no IMAGINATION
My Imagination!

I FEEL YOU!
I GOT YOU!
I HOPE YOU!

この想いを ビンビン伝えて欲しいから
kono omoi wo binbin tsutaette hoshii kara
From these pounding thoughts conveying what I want

HEAVY ROTATION
