[LYRICS] TOKIO - The Course of Life

From the 17 album, released in 2012
Lyrics & Composition by Taichi Kokubun

KANJI
この道だよね? 問いかけ 頷き 足をとめた
振り返り 自分たちの来た道 眺めて確かめた

遠くに見える景色には 絡まりもつれた曲線
歩幅ずれかけた、あの難境に 冷たい風、吹く度怯えた

かわした言葉で暖をとる二人
君の温もり感じて強くなれたんだ

The course of life
その手もう離さないよ どんな時だって
そう! ルートは一つじゃなくていい
僕ら選ぶ道、迷わず突き進もう

君となら…

歩くリズムに問いかけ ひらめき靴を履いた
つまずきかけた、あの艱難に 汚れた服、立ち向かった証

大地踏みしめて足跡を残す
君と歩く歩数だけ大人になったね

The course of life
迷った時も歩こう 共に支えあって
答えは一つじゃなくていい
僕ら歩く道、同じ歩幅で行こう

前途有望な旅には
きっと直線だけじゃダメなんだ
涙雨 知れた僕ら今
同じ景色、見れてんだ

そうだろう?

The course of life
誰も一人じゃ生きられない 明確な道さ
離さない
その手もう離さないよ どんな時だって
そう! ルートは一つじゃなくていい
僕ら選ぶ道、迷わず突き進もう

君となら…

続くこの道 The course of life

ROMAJI
Kono michi da yo ne? Toikake unazuki ashi o tometa
Furikaeri jibuntachi no kita michi nagamete tashikameta

Tooku ni mieru keshiki ni wa karamari mo tsureta kyokusen
Hohabazure kaketa, ano nankyou ni tsumetai kaze, fuku tabi obieta

Kawashita kotoba de dan o toru futari
Kimi no nukumori kanjite tsuyoku naretanda

The course of life
Sono te mou hanasanai yo donna toki datte
Sou! Ruuto wa hitotsu janakute ii
Bokura erabu michi, mayowazu tsukisusumou

Kimi to nara…

Aruku rizumu ni toikake hirameki kutsu o haita
Tsumazuki kaketa, ano kannan ni kegareta fuku, tachi mukatta akashi

Daichi fumishimete ashiato o nokosu
Kimi to aruku hosuu dake otona ni natta ne

The course of life
Mayotta toki mo arukou tomo ni sasaeatte
Kotae wa hitotsu janakute ii
Bokura aruku michi, onaji hohaba de ikou

Zen to yuubouna tabi ni wa
Kitto chokusen dake ja dame nanda
Namida ame shireta bokura ima
Onaji keshiki, miretenda

Sou darou?

The course of life
Dare mo hitori ja ikirarenai meikakuna michi sa
Hanasanai
Sono te mou hanasanai yo donna toki datte
Sou! Ruuto wa hitotsu janakute ii
Bokura erabu michi, mayowazu tsukisusumou

Kimi to nara…

Tsudzuku kono michi The course of life

ENGLISH
"This is the way, right?" You nod, and our feet come to a stop
Together we turn to gaze back down the winding road we came

A web of tangled curves stretches out beyond the horizon
And the steps we missed, leading us off-path, brought freezing winds and fear

But as we spoke, you gave me warmth
Giving me the strength to carry on

On this course of life
Don't let go of my hand, no matter what
Yes! We don't need just one route to go on
Let's keep going down the path we chose together

As long as we're together...

We find answers in the rhythm of our feet and insight in our shoes
And though we stumble and fall and dirty our clothes, it becomes our will to fight

Over unpacked dirt we go, leaving nothing but our footsteps
And along the way, somehow you and I grew up

On this course of life
We get lost and find our way, our hands clasped together
It's all right to have more than one answer
Let's keep going down this path, feet moving together

If you keep going down a straight path
You'll never reach a promising future
Now that we understand the tears and the pain
We can look across the same horizon

Don't you think?

On this course of life
No-one can live alone, nor lose sight of the road in front of them
Don't let me go
Don't let go of my hand, no matter what
Yes! We don't need just one route to go on
Let's keep going down the path we chose together

As long as we're together...

We'll keep going down the course of life



For the pet project, again.

The Course of Life can definitely function as a great love song, but I always think of this as Taichi singing about him and TOKIO. And that ends up making me bawl like a motherfucking loser. Of course, personally I always attach it to me and Bene, but. :x

Technically everything about 17 is just a mess of emotions for me, but Tokisen's songs (i.e. Jiyuuna Na no Moto Ni, The Course of Life, ...as one, etc.) seriously take the cake. They're the eldest, so obviously there'd be this protective feeling that Tomo and Mabo don't quite feel as much--especially since they were still kids when TOKIO debuted--but God, I never know what to do with them.
