Background[edit | edit source]

Main article: サンドリヨン (Cendrillon)

"Adolescence" is an original song by Signal-P. It was made for Len and Rin's 1st anniversary.

This is a spin-off of "Cendrillon" with different lyrics; both are produced by Signal-P and Orange.

In a matter of plot, Orange said that the theme is "at the age of 14, the duo celebrating adolescence". With only that to grasp, both Signal-P and Orange said that the song could be interpreted in any way. Some of the most famous interpretations are Len and Rin being romantically interested with each other, or the refusal of having to grow up.

This song has entered the Hall of Fame and invited various derivatives whether it is a PV or a fanart.

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
二人でずっと 踊る約束 futari de zutto odoru yakusoku
ふくらむ胸が ウソにする fukuramu mune ga uso ni suru
亜麻色の髪 鏡写して amairo no kami kagami utsushite
順番互いに 梳いていく junban tagai ni suite iku

同じベッド 揺られてた onaji beddo yurareteta
二人触れ合う 手と手結んでた 糸 futari fureau te to te musundeta ito

見知らぬ顔映る ささやく声低く mishiranu kao utsuru sasayaku koe hikuku
にぎるハンマーたたきつけるの 飛び散れガラスと nigiru hanmaa tatakitsukeru no tobichire garasu to
二人で積んだ城 積み木細工崩して futari de tsunda shiro tsumikizaiku kuzushite
軋む骨 騎士と姫へと 鐘が告げるエンド kishimu hone kishi to hime e to kane ga tsugeru endo

歪む鏡 手と手合わせ ずれる指の長さ yugamu kagami te to te awase zureru yubi no nagasa

これから違う ベッドで寝るの? kore kara chigau beddo de neru no?
君が呟く「お休み」 kimi ga tsubuyaku "oyasumi"
ドアノブ回し 扉をあける doanobu mawashi tobira o akeru
音に跳ね起き つかむ裾へ oto ni haneoki tsukamu suso e

伸びた指に 口付けて Nobita yubi ni kuchizukete
走る衝動 背骨抜けていく 刹那 hashiru shoudou sebone nuketeiku setsuna

明かりは消さないで 一人で寝る夜は akari wa kesanaide hitori de neru yoru wa
まだイヤと叫んだ右手で ぶつけるの枕 mada iya to sakenda migite de butsukeru no makura
「お化けが怖い」なんて子供だね僕の姫 "obake ga kowai" nante kodomo da ne boku no hime
濡れた瞳 違う言葉 いいたげに 見つめる nureta hitomi chigau kotoba iitage ni mitsumeru

パパとママの知らない時間は papa to mama no shiranai jikan wa
終わるのかな? 遠い夢 owaru no ka na? tooi yume
薄いタオル越し 届く熱が usui taoru goshi todoku netsu ga
壊す僕の止め金 kowasu boku no tomegane

声を押し殺して 扉は 鍵閉めて koe o oshikoroshite tobira wa kagi shimete
見つめ合う瞳と瞳が 答えを探す mitsumeau hitomi to hitomi ga kotae o sagasu
幼い言い訳を 明かりごと 消していく osanai iiwake o akari goto keshite yuku
その髪をすくえないなら 僕はウソもつくよ sono kami o sukuenai nara boku wa uso mo tsuku yo

時を止めて今は 二人で抱き合って toki o tomete ima wa futari de dakiatte
刻む鼓動一つ一つを シンクロさせたい kizamu kodou hitotsu hitotsu o shinkuro sasetai
とけてく 熱い息 抱きとめた ぬくもりに toketeku atsui iki dakitometa nukumori ni
これ以上は 動かないよ まるで君の 騎士(ナイト) kore ijou wa ukoganai yo marude kimi no naito
