Romaji Title: sotsugyou
Kanji Title: 卒業
English Title: Graduation

English CreditsKanji Credits
Lyrics & Music : Ozaki Yutaka
作詞・作曲:尾崎豊

NOTES
Most Japanese songs about graduation have to do with missing friends, and memories of typical "school like" things. A few even have to do with missing high school loves. This is the only Japanese song about graduation that I've ever heard that has to do with deeper issues than any of those. In fact, I think that most of us who weren't "the popular kids" can probably relate to this song better than any other song about graduation.

kousha no kage shibafu no ue suikomareru sora
maboroshi to riaru na kimochi kanjite ita
chaimu ga nari kyoushitsu no itsu mo no seki ni suwari
nani ni shitagai shitagaubeki ka kangaete ita
zawameku kokoro ima ore ni aru mono wa
imi naku omoete tomadotte ita

houkago machi furatsuki ore tachi wa kaze no naka
kodoku hitomi ni ukabe sabishiku aruita
waraigoe to tameiki no houwa shita mise de
pinbooru no haisukoaa kisoiatta
taikutsu na kokoro shigeki sae areba
nan de mo oogesa ni shaberi tsuzuketa

gyougi yoku majime nante deki ya shinakatta
yoru no kousha madogarasu kowashite mawatta
sakarai tsuzuke agaki tsuzuketa hayaku jiyuu ni naritakatta

shinjirarenu otona to no arasoi no naka de
yurushiai ittai nani wakari aeta darou
unzari shinagara sore demo sugoshita
hitotsu dake wakatte ita koto
kono shihai kara no sotsugyou

dare ka no kenka no hanashi ni minna atsuku nari
jibun ga dore dake tsuyoi ka shiritakatta
chikara dake ga hitsuyou da to katanani shinjite
shitagau to wa makeru koto to iikikashita

yagate dare mo koi ni ochite ai no kotoba to
risou no ai sore dake ni kokoro ubawareta

hito wo aisu massugusa wo tsuyoku shinjita
taisetsu na no wa nani aisuru koto to
ikiru tame ni suru koto no kubetsu mayotta

gyougi yoku majime nante kusokurae to omotta
