Superluminal 08. Love Cheek?

Superluminal Ж AKIBA-POP Track 08

Love Cheek?

ほらねいつもと違うのよ
恋を知った女の子の顔
メイクのノリも違うのね
こころなしかすべてがピンク
Look, a girl's face changes
when they fall in love.
Even my makeup's different.
For some reason I'm in all pink today.

こいはぐ
To Raise A Love

恋に奥手な 悩める男子
不安がる必要はないよ
何かの拍子で チャンスはくるよ
その日 来るまでお勉強
A late bloomer, worrying about love.
But there's no need to be anxious.
Your chance will come. Somewhere, somehow.
Just study until that day comes.

MOSAIC.WAV – Superluminal Ж AKIBA-POP

Actually it's "Superluminal Ж AKIBA-POP" but WordPress fails at non-ASCII characters in titles.

So, I listened to this album on shuffle and little else for about a whole month after downloading it. I then got the rest of the discography and even now I still have well over 80% of it in my playlist. It's safe to say this album is one of my all-time favorites, and after I read through booklet scans of the actual lyrics (instead of just listening to them) the idea of translating them was too fun to pass up. You'll see why after reading them.

Translation posts are in the form of Japanese stanza followed by English stanza. No romaji except on track titles in this post unless requested, since I couldn't think of a good way to cram them in.
