Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
May I tell you my story?
I've just been muttering to the seagulls

A woman loves singly, whole-heartedly...
The north sea breeze chills to the bone...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
This ragged stray's grudge blues--oh!
Can't reach far-off you
So I stand--and weep--Oh, the Cape of Thirty Years!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
A man is always making promises
All broken as soon as "it" is over!

nami no shibuki ni kono mi nagetara
tooi anta ni aesou de
koishisa ni sasagetai  misojidamashii

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If I cast this body into the waves, the spray
To far-off you
I'd like to dedicate--Oh, this feeling of thirty years!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
mitsudomoe no awa to shiri mo sezu
aishita tsumi wa kienai no

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I didn't know of that third person...
I can't escape love's curse

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
dare wo erabu ka kimerarenai to  
wakarejouzu na hito deshita

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
No matter whom I choose
It's someone who's "good" at leaving me!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
hagure koichiru uramibushi e to
kiyoi omoi ga karehateta
koishikute nikui no yo  
misoji misaki

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
This ragged stray's grudge blues--oh!
My pure thoughts have evaporated
I love you so much, I hate you!
Oh, the Cape of Thirty Years!

* As is hopefully clear, the "cape of thirty years" is the promontory on which the singer (of that age) stands, contemplating suicide over her despised love
