Music/Lyrics: 雅-MIYAVI-
Translation: Toppi - CoMYVz Crew

As U r -be just the way you are-
if you get more than a single shot at life and you’re born again…? there’s no such thing
if it feels nothing but worthless and dull right now, maybe it’s because you have no dreams
all right, for the time being (lets) try because you’re not the only one who’s having a tough time
so don’t cry baby, come on now don’t grumble, that’s a waste, you know?
life happens just once so please live it enthusiastically singing and dancing and going in full bloom
isn’t that nice? isn’t that nice? look
whatever your style, no matter what you look like, it’s OK, you know
(represented by a band of make-up wearing men)
you gotta shout out like I don’t wanna be whined at about this or that by people like you
got it? that’s just plain stupid man, watch out man
would you look at that Japanesque you know I’m saying
if you laugh you win, it’s just where the real value lies, right that’s it.

1,2,3step, HOP STEP JUMP YO in this JUNGLE made out of concrete where everything’s moving only forward
LET’S GO! be like the RUNNER who’s still running even if he’s fallen two steps behind
if you fall down seven times, rise again eight times[1] GET UP STAND UP
with the wings of that seized freedom got sky 1*2*3*4*COME ON LET’S FLY!!

Even if your wish doesn’t come true, even if it doesn’t reach its target, even if it doesn’t bear fruit
As long as it’s earnest, it’s alright, isn’t it
Isn’t that cooler instead
Even if you lack confidence and feel like there’s no way out anymore and are anxious about some things
It’s alright as it is, isn’t it
It’s alright not to put up a show, isn’t it. That’s the best, isn’t it. Be as you are

4,5,6step, stamp your feet more, forget about unpleasant things LET’S GO ON!!
SOMEBODY EVERYBODY shall we go ahead and give it a go, reject disagreeable things like “Right, face”[2]
AS YOU’RE… while being just the way you are 1*2*3* KEEP ON KEEPING ON! U GOT IT!!

Even if you don’t feel up to it, even if you make mistakes and are ashamed, it’s alright not to run away, isn’t it
It’s alright to go for it again, isn’t it. It’s not like you’re gonna die from it or anything, is it. you can do it!!
No matter what happens, you’re alive so it’s alright, isn’t it. It’s alright to keep doing your best, isn’t it
There are also people who wish they could lose their way, who wish they could worry about things,
but who, despite all that, can’t even be alive, aren’t there
Therefore it’s a luxury, you see. make sense?

[1]七転び八起き“nana korobi ya oki” is a popular Japanese proverb literally meaning “fall down seven times, get up eight times” which refers to the vicissitudes of life that one can overcome through ambition and tenacity, by always rising after repeated failures
[2]”Right, face” (右向き右 “migi muki migi”) is a command usually given in the military. In this context, it is used to convey the idea that being told what to do sucks and to encourage people not to blindly follow orders if they go against their hearts’ will
