Plenty of grit

fukiareru kaze ga kami wo surinuketeiku
sono hitomi ni utsuru shinkirou

hikari to yami wo hazama umareta inochi
ima futatabi tachimukau toki to

jidai wo utsusu kagami sae hibiware kudakete
soredemo ikiteru motomete yamanai ai wo sakenderu

tachikirenai omoi daite hito wa samayoi tsudzukeru
tachihadakaru kabe miageru yori
uchikuzusu sube wa aru to maboroshi wo uchiharatte
itsudatte ima koko ga hajimari

kurikaesu hibi ni okiwasureta negai
me wo fusetemo hontou wa shitteru

tsuyosa to yowasa yasashisa to kizuato
yuragu kokoro uchikeshitakutte

irodorareta kono machinami samishisa kakusezu
soredemo ikiteru
asu wo norikoeru chikara motometeru

tsuyogatteru sono murosa mo hikkorumete aishitai
namida no ato kesenai itami mo
uketomete wasurenaide soshite ashita ga kawaru yo
yobiokose nemutteru chikara wo

tachikirenai omoi daite hito wa samayoi tsudzukeru
tachihadakaru kabe miageru yori
uchikuzusu sube wa aru to maboroshi wo uchiharatte
itsudatte ima koko ga hajimari

Plenty of grit

The violent wind slips through my hair
Those eyes reflect a mirage

In the space between light and darkness, life was born
Now, again, it’s time to face it

If the mirror only reflects the age, the crack widens
But still I live, searching without end, I’ll shout out my love

Embrace these unseverable emotions, as people continue to wander
Looking over the wall that blocks our way
We have the means to knock it down, brush away all illusions
Always, from here it begins

In these repeating days, we forgot our wishes
Even if you cover your eyes, that’s the truth

Strength and weakness, kindness and scars
I want to deny my swaying heart

These painted storefronts can’t conceal loneliness
Even so I live
Searching for a power that can surmount tomorrow

Growing strong, even this fragility, lump it together and I want to love
All traces of tears gone, even pain
Take it, don’t forget, and we’ll change tomorrow
Call awake that sleeping power

Embrace these unseverable emotions, as people continue to wander
Looking over the wall that blocks our way
We have the means to knock it down, brush away all illusions
Always, from here it begins

Plenty of grit

吹きあれる風が 髪をすり抜けていく
その瞳に 映る現実(しんきろう)

光と闇を狭間 生まれた 魂(いのち)
今再び 立ち向かう時と

時代を映す鏡さえ ひび割れ砕けて
それでも生きてる 求めてやまない 愛を叫んでる

断ち切れない 理想(おもい)抱いて 人はさ迷い続ける
立ちはだかる壁見上げるより
打ち崩す術はあると 幻を打ち払って
いつだって 今ここがはじまり

くり返す日々に 置き忘れた願い
目を伏せても本当は知ってる

強さと弱さ 優しさと傷跡
ゆらぐ心 打ち消したくって

彩られたこの街並み さみしさ隠せず
それでも生きてる
明日(あす)を乗り越える力 求めてる

強がってる その脆さも ひっくるめて 愛したい
涙の跡消せない痛みも
受け止めて 忘れないで そして未来(あした)が変わるよ
呼び起こせ 眠ってる 根性(ちから)を

断ち切れない 理想(おもい)抱いて 人はさ迷い続ける
立ちはだかる壁見上げるより
打ち崩す術はあると 幻を打ち払って
いつだって 今ここがはじまり
