Oshiete yo hito wa naze sagashi tsuzukeru no
Tell me why people keep seeking (dreaming)

Kagirinaku setsunai ashitano yume wo
For tomorrow’s dream, which is almost impossible to reach

Hoshi dake ga mitsumeteru kanasii yoru ni wa
Lonely night, only stars are looking at me

Jibun wo tashikame takute kimi ni kuchiduke shitane
I kissed you, to be sure (of myself / us)

Zutto oikake tsuduketa yume wa itsu tsukameru noka
When can I make my dream, which I have been chasing, come true?

Dare nimo sore wa wakaranai keredo
But nobody knows it

Nani hitotsu kaerare nai kono omoi yuzure nai
I can not deny my will (aspiration / dream)

Oh in the storm [In English]

Arashi ni mukatte
Into the storm

habataku tori no youni
like a bird about to flutter its wings

Kagayaki no naka de…
In the light…

Kaze ni nare
Be the wind

Nan mairu (mile) mukou ni goru wa aru noka
How many miles do I have to walk to reach the goal?

Tatakau tame sore dakeni subete sasageta kita yo
I have devoted everything to fighting

Dakedo nanika wo kanjite ikite itai itsu no hini mo
But always, I want to feel alive

Namida de ashita ga kumoranai youni
Don’t want to make tomorrow clouded with tears

Kotae nante hoshiku nai
I don’t want an answer

Kono yume ga areba ii
Because I have the dream in my heart

Oh in the storm [In English]

Arashi ni mukatte
Into the storm

habataku tori no youni
like a bird about to flutter its wings

Kagayaki no naka wo…
In the light…

Kakete yuke
Fly high (in the sky)

I have to be a lonely warrior tonight. [In English] I have to be a lonely warrior tonight. [In English]

Ikutsu mo no toki wo koe
Through many hard days

Atsui omoi wo daite tonight [In English] With holding my aspiration
