それは横恋慕と、失恋と…そして成長の歌。

I would translate it as: a love affair, a broken heart (like unrequited love) and a song of growth. I'm particularly interested in the first 2 parts of the sentence.

  • So... what exactly is your question? Are you asking what it means? – Blavius Mar 23 '17 at 2:40
  • Yes, particularly the first part: それは横恋慕と It would be something like prohibited love but I would like to know if I'm right. – 天照天照 Mar 23 '17 at 2:42

"横恋慕と、失恋と…そして成長の" all modifies the 歌. Translate it like "(It's) the song of A, B ...and C".

EDIT: 横恋慕 means falling in love with someone who is already in a romantic relationship with someone else. 失恋 is heartbreak. So this song starts from a 横恋慕, and then heartbreaking follows, and it ends with overcoming the heartbreak and growing up.

  • I see thanks XD. One last thing. Can you translate A and B? それは横恋慕と and 失恋と – 天照天照 Mar 23 '17 at 2:48
  • And how would you translate それは横恋慕と as a whole? – 天照天照 Mar 23 '17 at 2:59
  • @Est One dictionary says it's "illicit love", but my English is not good and I'm not sure how this word is used. Maybe you can wait for someone else who can give a nice translation. – naruto Mar 23 '17 at 3:04
  • Forgetting about the exact translation, why would it be illicit? – 天照天照 Mar 23 '17 at 3:06
  • @Est Well, 横恋慕 just means liking someone who already has a partner, and if I understand correctly that thing itself is not "illicit". The word does not necessarily mean actually trying to steal him/her from his/her partner. – naruto Mar 23 '17 at 3:14
