YAPOOS – SPACE CADET [UCHUU SHIKAN KOUHOSEI] (1987)

lyrics by TOSHIRO SENSUI | music by MITSURU KOTAKI

One of the few songs on Yapoos Plan not written by Togawa herself. Very romantic.

I’m currently working on finishing the rest of the songs currently untranslated on Yapoos Plan – there’s two more after this.

Translation and notes under the cut:

The time melts away as you go
To stars of mystery and hope
You keep your limitless dream hidden
As your lonely eyes glisten

You pursue those bitter-sweet memories that never run out
And after light sleep you fly off on a journey to far away
I don’t know if I’ll be able to see you again
But you show me your smile and say “I’ll be back soon! I LOVE YOU!”

SPACE CADET
SPACE CADET

The green stars I gave you over to quietly drift further away
The pale light hits your cheek and you close your eyes
You don’t know if you’ll be able to see me again
But you point to a star and say “I’ll take that one back, for you”

SPACE CADET
SPACE CADET

From the other side of the cosmos you hum a secret song
You report back how your heart beats for me
As you send your love through the starry skies

The time melts away as you go
You keep your limitless dream hidden
And from the other side of the cosmos
You report back how your heart beats for me
