[LYRICS] TOKIO - Ashita o Mezashite!

From the Ashita o Mezashite! single, released in 2005
and also in the Harvest album, released in 2006
Lyrics & Composition by Tomoya Nagase

KANJI
地図を手に僕達は 見えない明日を目指すんだ
夢がある未知なる世界 ひたすら追い掛けて

振り返る事はない 目の前にある物見据えて
溢れてく希望だけを ポケットに詰め込んで

どんな時でもひとつになれば
なんでも出来るはずさ

今すぐBon Voyage! 明日を目指して
僕達は大地を蹴り出すんだ
ここからBon Voyage! 光を目指して
何時までも夢はあるんだから
真剣に生きていこう!

立ち並ぶ夢が今 勇気を与えてくれるんだ
何時の日も友の声が 僕達の道標

君の笑顔が輝いてる
この地球(ほし)を動かしてる

今すぐBon Voyage! 羽ばたく青空
大きく手を広げてみるんだ
ここからBon Voyage! 飛び立つ大空
何処までも君は行けるんだから
真剣に生きていこう!

大事な人が何処かで君を待ち望んでる
胸張っていればそれだけでいい…

今すぐBon Voyage! 明日を目指して
僕達は大地を蹴り出すんだ
ここからBon Voyage! 光を目指して
何時までも夢はあるんだから
真剣に生きていこう!
ずっと…

ROMAJI
Chizu o te ni bokutachi wa mienai ashita o mezasunda
Yume ga aru michinaru sekai hitasura oikakete
Furikaeru koto wa nai me no mae ni aru mono misuete
Afureteku kibou dake o poketto ni tsumekonde

Donna toki demo hitotsu ni nareba
Nandemo dekiru hazu sa

Ima sugu Bon Voyage! Ashita o mezashite
Bokutachi wa daichi o keri dasunda
Koko kara Bon Voyage! Hikari o mezashite
Itsu made mo yume wa arun dakara
Shinken ni ikiteikou!

Tachinarabu yume ga ima yuuki o ataete kurerunda
Itsu no hi mo tomo no koe ga bokutachi no michishirube

Kimi no egao ga kagayaiteru
Kono hoshi o ugokashiteru

Ima sugu Bon Voyage! Habataku aozora
Ookikute o hirogete mirunda
Koko kara Bon Voyage! Tobitatsu oozora
Doko made mo kimi wa ikerundakara
Shinken ni ikiteikou!

Daijina hito ga dokoka de kimi o machi nozonderu
Mune hatteireba sore dakede ii...

Ima sugu Bon Voyage! Ashita o mezashite
Bokutachi wa daichi o keri dasunda
Koko kara Bon Voyage! Hikari o mezashite
Itsu made mo yume wa arun dakara
Shinken ni ikiteikou!
Zutto...

ENGLISH
With a map in our hands, we head towards a tomorrow we can't see
Chasing an unknown world where dreams come true

We keep looking forward, never turning back
And stuff our pockets full to bursting with hope

No matter what happens, if we become one
Then we can do anything

Right this moment: Bon Voyage! Reach for tomorrow
Let's kick-start from the ground up
From here, it's Bon Voyage! Reach for the light
Our dreams will always be here with us
So let's live our lives to the fullest!

Lined up like this, our dreams give us courage
And the voice of a friend will guide us no matter when it is

Your smile is shining
Making the world spin on

Right this moment: Bon Voyage! Fly through the blue sky
And spread your arms wide
From here, it's Bon Voyage! Take off into the endless sky
Because you can go anywhere you want to go
Let's live our lives to the fullest!

Somewhere out there, someone important waits for you
So keep your head up, and it'll be okay...

Right this moment: Bon Voyage! Reach for tomorrow
Let's kick-start from the ground up
From here, it's Bon Voyage! Reach for the light
Our dreams will always be here with us
So let's live our lives to the fullest!
Always...



For a pet project of mine. I'm going to be posting a few more lyrics in the next few hours, haha.

But here's one of my favourites--an oldie but a goodie. ♥ It sounds as young and fresh as Tomoya was in his mid-twenties, and you can really hear his love for brass arrangements starting to grow, too. :x

Thank you for translating and sharing this. If I knew Nagase wrote the music and lyrics, I'd forgotten. Great song.
