Mr Children: Yo-idon (Ready, Set, Go)

August 21, 2008

Yo-idon (Ready, Set, Go)

      07.25.05
      Artist: Mr. Children
      Title: Yo-idon (Ready, Set, Go!)
      Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
      Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

      I close my eyes, and swing myself with all my might
      feeling a bit more like a grown-up than usual
      I kick at the wind, imagining that I’m flying in the sky
      I can go anywhere I want, now is the start of my journey.

      Without waiting for the “Ready, Set, Go”, we’ll grow up
      no idea where we’re headed
      but we’re gonna make a break for it anyway,
      we’re gonna start tumbling

      the distinguished professors and scholars have got it wrong
      you can’t make the future with figures and data
      there’s no way to solve the problem
      of how to fill in the empty space in our hearts with one person
      so let’s solve it together.

      there’s so many good examples all around me, I’m going to be happy!
      even the grown-ups, too big for shorts and ribbons now, are worrying
      they keep on tumbling

      don’t wear down what you see glimmering
      in my heart, in your heart
      polish it up with the towel of Time.

      I close my eyes, and swing myself with all my might
      I can go anywhere I want, now is the start of my journey.

      Without waiting for the “Ready, Set, Go!”, we’ll grow up
      no idea where we’re headed
      but we’re gonna make a break for it anyway

      there’s so many good examples all around me, I’m going to be happy! we’re
      going to become grown-ups too big for shorts and ribbons
      and we’ll keep on tumbling.
