AKB48 – Sakura no Hanabiratachi [English Translation]

In the classroom next to the window
the sun shines
like a calendar with only a little of spring left

In class, if I look,
my friends who
wore the same uniform
look like adults

We’re all going
towards our own futures
On our backs
the wings of our dreams
are growing

When the sakura petals bloom
You can hear the bells of wishes everywhere
They give us freedom
and courage for tomorrow
When the sakura petals bloom
All over the world, everyone prays
to be able to open the door
to a new world

There were times when we fought, talked on the phone
and cried
Somehow I miss
those troubled days

Through happiness and sadness
If I look back on that road
I wasn’t alone
at any time

In our graduation photo
I’m smiling
I want to see off
the seasons past
Goodbye

The petals of my tears are floating down
I walk with them running down my face
I take a deep breath
and look up at the blue sky
The petals of my tears are floating down
My memories are beautiful
The stairs to adulthood before my eyes
let’s wave and take them together

When the sakura petals bloom
You can hear the bells of wishes everywhere
They give us freedom
and courage for tomorrow
When the sakura petals bloom
All over the world, everyone prays
to be able to open the door
to a new world

The petals of my tears are floating down
I walk with them running down my face
I take a deep breath
and look up at the blue sky
The petals of my tears are floating down
My memories are beautiful
The stairs to adulthood before my eyes
let’s wave and take them together
