17th: Tsubasa (翼)
Ah, it’s said that life is a journey
How do I live when it’s always sink or swim?
Ah, it’s said that the heart is a universe
What do I do to turn my dreams into reality?
My doubts go round and round in this narrow place
But above this wide sky, I can’t even hesitate anymore
Someone told me, ‘If you go you’ll understand.’
And I thought, ‘That’s true too.’
We’ll plunge beyond this uncertainty
Turn the courage to take the first step into wings
Ah, you people who deliberately put yourselves into fights
What lies at the border between winning and losing?
If I run away there’s nowhere for me to come back to
If I hit a dead end, turning back and advancing is the same
If I lose my way and stop moving
From the window of my heart I can see the blue sky
When others see my failures and successes
I’ll remember the purity of the feelings in my very first step
When you’re exhausted and telling lies, notice the value of your motives
If you’re hurt and tired out by your real intentions, then you’re lying to yourself
Chase after your dreams
Wherever I go, whatever I become
Even though I don’t know if I’ll be satisfied
No matter where I go, no matter what I become
I’ll be uneasy about whether I’m really being myself
I decided on my own that I’ll only understand if I go
When I’m lost I’ll look back at the footprints in my heart
It’s okay to keep on coming back to my starting point
Because that’s where real courage will spring forth
Because the footprints in my heart won’t lie.
