Challenger

Japanese
We are challenger (×4)

ずっと 願ってたって変わらない
絶対なんて決められない
きっと 考えもつかないことは
誰も教えてくれない

だからボクらは止めない挑戦者
心のモーター回して

眩しい期待がいつかキミをキミを燃やす
ボクは若過ぎて意味がわからずにいたけど
夢を見捨てないで 涙で未来がぼやけても
今しかできない 掴め! 未来未来 見たい

We can’t 言うのは簡単だけれど
まだまだ好奇心に揺られ
I know 知れば知るほどにまた
この世界は広過ぎてた

なのにボクらは止めない挑戦者
心のエンジン燃やせ

どうにかなりそうなくらい がむしゃらだった日々
10年後きっとボクは楽に生きてられるはずと
寝るのが怖いほど何かしてなきゃいられなくて
命の祈りが散らしたのは火花火花

We are challenger (×4)

眩しい光を超えていつかいつか跳べる?
あの日のボクらに笑顔でいられますように
夢を見捨てないで 涙で未来がぼやけても
今しかできない 掴め! ボクたちは挑戦者

English
We are challenger (×4)

We were always wishing, and this won’t change
This can never be settled
A thing that is surely unimaginable
Is something nobody will teach you

This makes us challengers that will not quit
The motor in our hearts keeps on turning

Someday your dazzling expectations will consume you
But we were too young to understand
Without abandoning our dreams, even when we can’t see the future for the tears in our eyes
It’s now or never, seize the moment! The future, we want to see the future.

Saying “We can’t” is easy
But still our curiosity won’t let us settle
Even as there are more and more things where we can say “I know”
This world was still too big

But we are challengers that will not quit
The engine in our hearts keeps on running

The days we worked frantically, not knowing how things would turn out
Should have meant we could live comfortably 10 years later
We can’t help doing something, the thought of sleep scares us
Our prayers for life throw off sparks, sparks

We are challenger (×4)

Will we leap through this dazzling light someday?
So that we are able to smile on that day
Without abandoning our dreams, even when we can’t see the future for the tears in our eyes
It’s now or never, seize the moment! We are challengers.

We are challenger (×4)
