Artist: Mr. Children
Title: Owarinaki Tabi ( Endless Journey )
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

I won’t look back on the path I ran along out of breath
As I set my eyes upon only the future, my wish set free.
it’s just like a plane my life gets wiped out. I light the fire in my
passion
and it brings with it light and shadows advancing.

In a loud voice, I yell myself hoarse.
I’m singing that I want to be loved.

I declare to myself ” I’m not just a brat anymore ” but
I end up looking for the answer again.

On the other side of the door that’s been shut
something new is waiting for me.
Surely, surely I’ll be moved by it.
It’s not all good things but I want to knock on the next door.
Searching for a me that is to be larger. Endless Journey.

No matter who I talk to or live with, loneliness builds up but
somewhere there is a person who needs me.
In a melancholic love my heart hurts.
I’ll be crying, I want to be loved !
There’s nothing to be worried about. Time will heartlessly wash it all
away.

When I began to think in complicated ways, everything became awful.
I get to wanting to stealthily retreat but
I feel great when I climb progressively higher walls.
I wouldn’t recognize the boundaries.

Time continues in pandamonium, looking for that prize
in order to be consistent people fit into their shapes.
Don’t try to be anyone else. It’s okay for you to be yourself.
There’s no recipe for living. None at all.

I won’t look back on the path I ran along out of breath,
I’ll just ride my dream to the future.

On the other side of the door that’s been shut
something new is waiting for me
Surely, surely it’ll move you.
It’s not all good but let’s go knock on the next door
Looking for a more wonderful you.
So you can change the confusion you keep in your heart
into positive energy.
Always today we’ll be moved.
It’s not all bad. Come on let’s go knock on the next door.
Searching for a me that is to be larger
Endless Journey. Endless Journey

ROMAJI

Iki wo kirashite sa kakenuketa michi wo furikaeri wa shinai nosa
Tada mirai dake wo misuenagara hanatsu negai
Kanna mitai ni ne inochi wo kezutte sa jounetsu wo tomoshite wa
Mata hikari to kage wo tsurete susumunda

Ookina koe de koe wo karashite aisaretai to utatte irundayo
“Gaki jya aru maishi” jibun ni iikikasu kedo mata kotae sagashite shimau

Tozasareta doa no mukou ni atarashii nanika ga matteite
Kitto kittotte boku wo ugokashiteru
Iikoto bakari dewa nai sa demo tsugi no tobira wo nokkushitai
Motto ookina hazu no jibun wo sagasu owari naki tabi

Dare to hanashite mo dareka to sugoshite mo sabishisa wa tsunoru kedo
Dokoka ni jibun wo hitsuyou to shiteru hito ga iru

Yuutsuna koi ni mune ga itande aisaretai to naite itandarou
Shinpainaize toki wa mujouna hodo ni subete wo arai nagashite kureru

Muzukashiku kangaedasu to kekkyoku subete ga iyani natte
Sotto sotto nigedashitaku naru kedo
Takakereba takai kabe no hou ga nobotta toki kimochi ii monna
Mada genkai da nante mitomecha inai sa

Jidai wa konranshi tsuzuke sono daishou wo sagasu
Hito wa tsujitsuma wo awasuyou ni kata ni hamatteku
Dare no mane mo sunna kimi wa kimi de ii
Ikiru tame no reshipi nante nai nai sa

Iki wo kirashite sa kakenuketa michi wo furikaeri wa shinai nosa
Tada mirai e to yume wo nosete

Tozasareta doa no mukou ni atarashii nanika ga matteite
Kitto kittotte kimi wo ugokashiteru
Iikoto bakari dewa nai sa demo tsugi no tobira wo nokkushiyou
Motto subarashii hazu no jibun wo sagashite

Mune ni kakaekonda mayoi ga purasu no chikara ni kawaru youni
Itsumo kyou datte bokura wa ugoiteru
Iyana koto bakari dewa nai sa saa tsugi no tobira wo nokkushiyou
Motto ookina hazu no jibun wo sagasu owari naki tabi owari naki tabi
