[Arashi][Lyrics] Fight Song 
20th-Apr-2006 11:48 pm
Sorry, I should be doing requests but this song finally got played in its entirety so i couldn't resist.

Finally! A completely Arashi made song. I also love how Nino is like "yeah bitches this is basically my song lolololol." God, they know I love ganbare songs and they know I love Prince.

Note: Lyrics romanized by saishi_gackt and not me so give thanks to her too.

I don't know why anyone would want an audiorip of this, but I ripped it myself (although I highly recommend this week's GnoArashi).


作詞:嵐 作曲:二宮和也
lyrics by: Arashi
music composed by: Ninomiya Kazunari

itsumo doori no kimi de ii
nante iwanai hou ga ii
soko kara mata hajimari darou?
kore ga kimi ni wa niatteru

人は人 自分は自分
hito wa hito jibun wa jibun
kurabeta jiten de maketeru
jibun ni makenai tsuyosa ga
donna kabe wo mo kowashite iku

まだやれる その先の夢(さき)
toki ni wa naite ii yo
yowai toko misete mo daijoubu
demo soko de kusaru na
mada yareru sono saki no saki

donna ikutsu mono kotoba yori mo
tatta hitotsu no kotoba ga ii
mazu wa jibun de fumidashite mite
"ganbare" sonna yasui YATSU de ii

ima wa nayamu koto mo aru deshou
hekomu koto datte aru deshou
demo mirai no dokoka de kimi to
warai aereba michi wa tsukurareru

donna ikutsu mono kotoba yori mo
tatta hitotsu no kotoba ga ii
yatto ippo fumidaseta yo ne
"ganbare" hora ne niatteiru yo

Fight Song(0)

You'd better not say something like
"You're fine as you are"
It's a new beginning from there on, isn't it?
You look your best like this(1)

People are people
You are yourself
You lose once you start comparing
The strength you have not to lose against yourself
Will break down any wall

It's okay to cry sometimes
It's okay to show your weaknesses
But don't stagnate(2) there!
You can still achieve it
The dreams (that lie) ahead

Better than any other myriad of words
Just one is fine
First, try stepping forward
With a "GANBARE!"(3)
Just something as simple as that is fine

You have worries right now, right?
You have times when you are down, right?
But if there's somewhere in the future where we can laugh together
Then a path can be made

Better than any other myriad of words
Just one is fine
At last, you've stepped one foot forward
"GANBARE!" See, you look your best.

(0) "Fight" in Japanese is another false cognate. It's what people say when they're cheering someone on, kind of like "let's go!" or something of that sort. I can't really find a good translation of it so I left it as is.
(1) A very Japanese compliment is to say that something positive is "befitting/becoming" of you (似合う). I chose to translate it as so because it makes more sense when an intangible concept "suits" someone.
(2) This verb means to rot or to go bad but that would put some strange and not intended connotations in english so I chose "stagnate" because while it still gives the idea of something going stale/going bad (like have any of you smelled stagnate water? ughhhh) without the gross gangrene connotations.
(3) The "G" in "GnoArashi" stands for "GANBARE" which is a really Japanese catchword. Technically, it means "to persist/stand firm/try one's best," but when conjugated in command form (as it is here, note that GANBARE is a stronger, more forceful command than GANBATTE) it resembles "Hold on/Go for it/Keep on going!" I love GANBARE songs like this one.

thks for translating. ^^ I wish Nino/arashi would compose more songs.
21st-Apr-2006 04:20 am (UTC)
Yeah, Nino writes good songs.
I'm still hoping he does some awesome solo side project like ENDLICHERI^2 because that would make me die of happiness.

It'd make me a damn happy creature too *hopes*

Yes it was! I don't know if it'll be released or not, but I'm hoping it will because it's pretty catchy. I don't know, maybe if it gets popular enough it'll make it on the summer CD.

I have looked for the lyrics of this fighting song for so long.
I really appreciate the effors you made for the lyrics and the time you send to translate it!
Really, thank you very much T_T
(I'm so moved~)

May I ask if I could transfer the japanese lyrics to a Chinese board in Taiwan called [CIA] and my personally diary board?
I really want to share this song with people who love ARASHI and long for the lyrics.
But please feel free to reject me if this request confuse you.

Thanks for your lyrics again! THANKS!!
