Lyrics: Makoto Nagano 長野誠
Music: Hironori Kaneko 金子裕則.
English Translatio: Carol Hui Akiyama


(An Ode to) The Fighting Spirit of Men

I am starting to run, to leave behind evidence I existed
To a place where there is the tears and sweat of men, but also strong bonds

No matter how tough things got, we were all there together
To encourage each other, to compete and to take on challenges

And the times when I got afraid, my buddies, you lifted my spirit and kept praying
So all I had to do was believe, to believe in myself and go


(CHORUS)
Keep on going, towards tomorrow
No matter how broken down you get, always pick yourself up
Don’t get defeated by your greatest opponent – yourself
So one day, you can turn these tears of defeat into tears of joy

You are also starting to run, to fulfill your dreams
To that place where you can shine, where your lives have meaning

With the sun setting on your backs, you still dream and challenge yourselves
No matter how deep you fall, you always crawl back up

So one day I will see you shine, and shed tears from my heart
Because your happiness is my happiness

(Chorus)

We are starting to run, to find some meaning in our lives
It is a place of defeat, hopelessness, pain, sadness and tears
But… (Chorus)

It’s my life, is the stage.

Romanji version: Carol Hui Akiyama

Ore wa ima hashiri dashita ikita akashi o nokosu tame ni
Soko ni wa otoko dachi no ase ya namida ga ari, kizuna ga atta

Donna ni kurushii toki mo, kimidachi wa soba ni ite kureta
Hagemashi ai, kisoi ai, idomi tsu tsuketa

Osoreru ore ni kiai o ire, inori tsu tsukeru nakama dachi
Ato wa jibun o shinjite, shinjite susumu dake

Chorus
Sa a yuke! Ashita ni mukatte
Don na ni uchi kuda kare temo
Akira mezu ni tachi mukae
Makeru na! Jibun to iu saidai no teki ni
Itsuka no hi ka kuyashi namida o yorokobi no namida ni kae yo

Kimi dachi mo ashiri dashita idai ita yume o kana eru tame ni
So ko ni wa onore o kagayaka seru basho ga ari, jinsei ga atta

Senaka ni yuuhi o abite, yume o oi, idomi tsu tsuke
Don zoku ni oto sare temo, hai agatte kita kimi tachi
Itsuka no hi ka kimi dachi no kagayaku sugata o mite,
kokoro no namida o nagashitai
Kimi dachi no yorokobi wa, ore no yorokobi dakara
(Chorus)

Otoko dachi wa hashiri dashita
Ikiru imi o sagasu tame ni
Soko ni wa zasetsu ya zetsubo, kuya shimi ya kana shimi ga ari, namida ga atta
(Chorus)

It’s my life, is the stage
