Natsu no Kakera

Fragments of Summer

Sung by: Coming Century
Translated by: Mina-P (Email: Minako@senshigakuen.com)
Version 1.00

Note: Natsu no Kakera is a supremely happy, upbeat summer song from Coming Century. It's really cute and a perfect Coming Century song about high school romance, which makes it one of my favorites. It's also one of KamiSen's most famous songs as it's the one and only Coming Century single. Although 20th Century has released two singles and two albums, the extremely popular Coming Century has only released this single, and zero albums. I'm not quite sure why this is, either, as Coming Century is by far more popular with the rabid fangirl crowd. Maybe it's because KamiSen is too busy releasing videos and going on tours... or maybe it's just because half of the V6 singles have KamiSen b-sides. Whatever...


jugyou o nukedashite     kimi to futarikiri
boku wa tsugi no wadai     hisshi ni sagashiteiru
tamekonda omoi     taoresou na yuuki
isshun no taiyou ga     kyuu ni tokashiteku

Let's slip out of class     just you and me
I'm desperately searching     for something to talk about next
My built up thoughts     My falling courage
One moment in the sun     suddenly melts them away


kotoba ni dekinai kimochi     umetakute
kimi no te o totte

I want to bury the feelings     that I can't sum up in words
I take your hand


You make me feel so happy
natsu no kakera o     hada ni kanjite
kisetsu no doa     ashi de aketa     donna koto datte mou dekisou ni naru
issho ni itai ne
kitto ashita wa     motto futsuu ni
mainichi ga sugiteitte mo     jiyuu ni natta mama de
tooku ni toberu sa

You make me feel so happy
I feel fragments of summer     on my bare skin
I opened the door     to the season with my foot     No matter what it is, I feel like I can do it
I want to be with you
Surely tomorrow     will be more normal
Even if many days pass right by     I'll freely
Fly far away


boku ga shiranakatta     nukemichi o nukeru
kimi no himitsu motto     shiritakute natteru

I take a secret passage     that I didn't know about
I want to know more     about your secrets


zutto hanarenai de     tsunaida te to te ni
ase ga nijinde

Without letting go     we walk hand in hand
Sweat runs between us


You make me feel so happy
natsu no kakera ga     mune ni hajikete
warainagara     ochitsukanai mama
bokura ga mannaka ni ikiteru tte kanji
yakusoku shiyou
natsu ni nattara umi e ikou yo
hanabi toka yattari shiyou
zutto wasurerarenai
ima o mata tsukurou

You make me feel so happy
Fragments of summer     burst from my heart
As I laugh so hard     that I just can't calm down
It feels like we're living right in the middle of things
Let's make a promise
When summer comes, let's go to the ocean
And set off fireworks
We'll never be able to forget it
Let's remake our present


natsu no kakera o     hada ni kanjite
kisetsu no doa     ashi de aketa     donna koto datte mou dekisou ni naru
issho ni itai ne
kitto ashita wa     motto futsuu ni
mainichi ga sugiteitte mo     jiyuu ni natta mama de
tooku ni toberu sa

I feel fragments of summer     on my bare skin
I opened the door     to the season with my foot     No matter what it is, I feel like I can do it
I want to be with you
Surely tomorrow     will be more normal
Even if many days pass right by     I'll freely
Fly far away
