Overall Meaning

In these intricate and introspective lyrics of TM NETWORK's song "TEENAGE," the band expresses a poignant contemplation on the complexities of life experiences and emotions. The passage opens with the concept of time passing - "yesterday today tomorrow" - suggesting a cyclical nature of existence. The juxtaposition of "100億の悲しみと夢と" (billions of sadness and dreams) reflects the vast range of human emotions that accompany us through life's journey. The contrasting feelings of joy, frustration, comfort, and loneliness are all intertwined in the fabric of our individual experiences.


The recurring motif of music serves as a powerful vehicle to evoke memories and emotions from one's teenage years. The nostalgia and yearning for the past are palpable as the lyrics describe how music can transport us back to our youth, through different moments of the day - from twilight to the bright light of day. The mention of the global state of affairs, with a nod to momentarily escaping reality through the enjoyment of alcohol, underscores the universal desire for escapism and temporary reprieve from the weight of the world's troubles.


The narrative shifts focus to the portrayal of individuals who seem trapped in a state of apathy and inertia, unable to break free from their slumbering existence. In contrast, there are those who strive to keep their hearts beating with youthful enthusiasm, clinging to the dreams of their younger selves. The reference to "若き頃の夢" (dreams of youth) highlights the enduring significance of holding onto the aspirations and passion we harbored in our formative years, even in the face of life's challenges and setbacks.


The concluding verses echo the earlier sentiments, emphasizing the transformative power of music in evoking the essence of youth and the spectrum of emotions that come with it. The repetitions of "through the night," "through the midnight," and "through the moment, through the light" reinforce the cyclical nature of life and the endless cycle of memories and emotions that shape our journey. Through these evocative lyrics, TM NETWORK invites listeners to reflect on their own experiences and the timeless themes of nostalgia, resilience, and the enduring spirit of youth.
