Glass no Show Window hishimeku Taxi
Nemuranai Noise no Neon Street.
Jacket katate ni tobidashita Midnight
Hoteru Body moteamasu Energy.

Hamidashite mo Get My Way.
Ima wa maketakunai
“Knock down” kodoku no Fence

“Chase the Dream”

“Chase the Dream”
nemuru jibun no chikara o.
Kyoo no namida wa yorokobi e

“I wanna get big chance.”

Yume to hikikae chi o nagashite mo

KURIKAESHI #1.

A glass show window, a crowd of taxis,
the noise of a neon street that never sleeps.
I dashed out into midnight, jacket in hand,
my flushed body bursting with energy.

Even if I slip through the cracks, I'll get my
way. I don't want to be beaten now…
“Knock down” …even though I stumble
over the fence of loneliness.

#1:
“Chase the Dream”
I'll always want to believe…
“Chase the Dream”
…in my own latent strength.
Today's tears are the way to joy.
Failure is the way to success.
I'm sure it will always be that way.
“I don't wanna say 'Give up.'“

I saw a teenager with helpless eyes
because he couldn't see even
a fragment of gentleness
who no longer wanted to
spend melancholy dawns
leaning against the subway shutters
and waiting for the first train.

On a rooftop where the wind was blowing,
he made a fist, took a jab,
and broke the pathetic night.

“Chase the dream”
I'm sure that, by standing up tall…
“Chase the dream”
…I'll show them I can make it in this town.
I want to keep on racing,
accelerator open all the way,
sweat pouring over my heart.
“I wanna get big chance.”

I'll even give my blood in exchange
for my dreams, because the
last thing I want is regret.

REPEAT REFRAIN #1.
