純情ソーダ水 (Junjou sooda sui) – Pure soda water


from Koko ga Rhodes da, koko de tobe! album.

Soda water
You’ve always been drinking it
They’re jumping inside the glass
The strong bubbles
Bubbling
Soda water
Another world in green
Why does it
Seem so much like an adult’s drink?

I was still young then
Not realizing what love is (what love is)
I just thought of and treated you like
My kind tutor

We embraced in joy when
I qualified for my first choice school
I felt it in my uniformed heart
Pureness

Soda water
Because it makes my throat tingle
I’ve never been able to drink it
The young me
Admired
Soda water
I tried it once I turned twenty
And now
I seem to remember…

You were great at teaching
But I failed in love (love)
That was the only thing you didn’t teach me
So I practised it alone countless times

I heard from my juniors
That you became an architect
Do you remember me?
From that day…

Soda water
You’ve always been drinking it
They’re jumping inside the glass
The strong bubbles
Bubbling
Soda water
Another world in green
Why does it
Seem so much like an adult’s drink?

Too late
Feelings of love
Welled up in my heart
Like many
Tiny bubbles
From that day’s pureness

Soda water
Because it makes my throat tingle
I’ve never been able to drink it
The young me
Admired
Soda water
I tried it once I turned twenty
And now
I seem to remember…

And I just felt sad

Sooda sui
Anata ga itsumo nondeta
Gurasu no naka haneteru
Tsuyoi awatachi
Shuwashuwa
Sooda sui
Midori iro no bessekai
Naze da ka
Totemo otona ni mieta

Ano koro wa mada osanakute
Koi to wa (koi to wa) kizukazu ni
Tada yasashii katei kyoushi to
Omotte sesshiteta

Shiboukou no goukaku ni
Daki ai yorokonda
Seifuku no mune ga kanjita
Junjou

Sooda sui
Nodo ga chikuchiku suru kara
Nomenakatta zutto
Kodomo no watashi
Akogare
Sooda sui
Hatachi sugite torai shita
Imasara
Omoi dashita mitai ni…

Oshie kata umakatta no ni
Renai (renai) rakudaiten
Sono koto dake oshiete moraezu
Nandoka jishuu shita

Kenchikuka ni natta tte
Kouhai ni kiita wa
Watashi wo oboeteiru kana?
Ano hi no…

Sooda sui
Anata ga itsumo nondeta
Gurasu no naka haneteru
Tsuyoi awatachi
Shuwashuwa
Sooda sui
Midori iro no bessekai
Naze da ka
Totemo otona ni mieta

Ato kara
Suki to iu sono kimochi
Mune ni komi ageru
Chiisana awa ga
Ippai
Ano hi no junjou

Sooda sui
Nodo ga chikuchiku suru kara
Nomenakatta zutto
Kodomo no watashi
Akogare
Sooda sui
Hatachi sugite torai shita
Imasara
Omoi dashita mitai ni…

Nanka setsunaku natta

ソーダ水
あなたがいつも飲んでた
グラスの中 跳ねてる
強い泡たち
シュワシュワ
ソーダ水
緑色の別世界
なぜだか
とても大人に見えた

あの頃は まだ幼くて
恋とは(恋とは)気づかずに
ただやさしい家庭教師と
思って接してた

志望校の合格に
抱き合い喜んだ
制服の胸が感じた
純情

ソーダ水
喉がチクチクするから
飲めなかった ずっと
子どもの私
憧れ
ソーダ水
二十歳(はたち)過ぎてトライした
今さら
思い出したみたいに…

教え方 上手かったのに
恋愛(恋愛)落第点
そのことだけ教えて貰えず
何度か自習した

建築家になったって
後輩に聞いたわ
私を覚えているかな?
あの日の…

ソーダ水
あなたがいつも飲んでた
グラスの中 跳ねてる
強い泡たち
シュワシュワ
ソーダ水
緑色の別世界
なぜだか
とても大人に見えた

後から
好きというその気持ち
胸にこみあげる
小さな泡が
いっぱい
あの日の純情

ソーダ水
喉がチクチクするから
飲めなかった ずっと
子どもの私
憧れ
ソーダ水
二十歳(はたち)過ぎてトライした
今さら
思い出したみたいに…

なんか切なくなった
