あの夏の日

The Hamu is alive!! thanks for the wonderful translation!! beautiful new song and words. the song reminds me of those from "I Hope So", and sounds much like an Ayumi ballad. her weather-beatened vocals suit songs like these to a T. i think she should just focus on new releases and not resing old songs. having said that, i haven’t heard the full remade songs and will reserve commentaries till i do so!

見上げる空にふわりと Looking up at the sky
流れる風の香りは a light aroma fills the air
夏の日の残り香たち Those lingering fragrants of the summer
かすかにただよわせるの faintly being drifted
はるかに遠く遠く 季節はうつろい Season fades further and further away 
遠い遠い 過去になる becomes distant past
あなたが居た あの夏の日 That summer day with you
空に咲く花火 Fireworks in the sky
散っていく 想い出とも together with the scattered memories
あなたと観た 夏の星座 Summer stars that (I) watched with you
夜空を彩る lights up the night sky
忘れない 隣にいた (I’ll) never forget your voice
あなたの声 by my side
変わりゆく季節 Ever changing seasons
変われない想い Unchanged thoughts
ずっと ずっと 永遠に Forever and ever till eternity
色あせるモノクローム The mid summer night confined in 
閉じ込めた真夏の空 faded monochrome
赤焼けた思い出たち The scorching red memories
も一度胸を焦がすの burnt my heart once again
しずかにそっとそっと 月日は満たされ quietly silently days are filled
深く深く 刻まれる deeply deeply carved
あなたが居た あの夏の日 That summer day with you
校舎のらくがき Doodle at the school hall
消えてゆく 想い出とも together with the fading memories
あなたと観た 海のあおさ The blue ocean enjoyed with you
胸をやきつくす My chest burnt
忘れない 波打ち際 (I’ll) never forget the waves
手のぬくもり the warmth of (your) hand
過ぎてゆく出会い missed encounters
変われない想い Unchanged thoughts
ずっと ずっと 今も Forever and ever even now
あなたが居た あの夏の日 That summer day with you
空に咲く花火 Fireworks in the sky
舞い上がれ 想い出たち Memories rising up to the air
あなたと観た 夏の星座 Summer stars that (I) watched with you
夜空を彩る lights up the night sky
忘れない 隣でみた (I’ll) never forget the dreams of yesterday
あの日の夢 that we shared
変わりゆく季節 Ever changing seasons
変われない想い Unchanged thoughts
ずっと ずっと 永遠に Forever and ever till eternity
あの夏の軌跡 Traces of that summer
変わらない想い Unchanged thoughts
ずっと ずっと 今へ Forever and ever till now

Akina fanboy since 14. Still undecided which are his top ten favourite Akina tracks as it's mission impossible. Digs "Everlasting Love" a whole lot more than the average Akina fan.

  1. Thanks for such a fast translation.

    Let’s wake Hamu more…

    It’s funny that you said. I had similar feeling that it sounds similar to Ayumi’s song in Kouhaku. I don’t really know Ayumi’s song.

    I do like this song more and more. It’s not flashy but very nice and sweet.

  2. I’m a bit disappointed with this ballad. It’s kind of like Days meaning it isn’t exactly bad nor exceptionally good. It just is. Well hopefully it’ll grow on me more. And I’m also reminded of Ayumi by this song (probably her latest song "part of Me" or "JEWEL" that makes me think like this). The "ずっと ずっと" also made me think of Angela Aki’s new single "Sakurairo" lol.

  3. i love Angela Aki. so into her now. i understand totally what you said about Days – i loathe that song! this is different, it’s a grower!

  4. I did not like ‘Days’ but I do like this new song.

    Again, it’s not flashy but it’s very nice.

  5. If romanized is it "Ano natsuno hi" or "Ano natsu no hi"?

    Oh yeah and thank you for the translated lyrics!

  6. I love Angela Aki too. After watching her at Kohaku and not even bothering to change her jersey when it was her turn to sing, I thought it was more refreshing than seeing Ayu rehash that same old stupid "boat" and horrible hair over and over again.

    Thanks to our Japanese 先輩, Hamu san, who I learnt passed the JLPT 1 test not too long ago, which is native level Japanese. お目でとうございます!

    This is a "petition" to revive Happy Hamu!

  7. I LOVE THE SONG! The first thing that hit me was the music arrangement which sound a tad like those which AYU will sing.. BUT no way AYU can sing with such feelings- filled voice. STILL, AYU is LESS IRRITATING than KODA. LOL

    Angela Aki is cool! I likey her too!!! But her voice seems better live than her recording voice.. and Sakurairo sounds like a song from what Kiroro will sing too.. hahaha.. AA sounds like a tad like them too at th e beginning… Nevertheless, the song is good. HOME is nice too! =D
