Romaji

Hajime kara tsuyoi kokoro nante
Daremo ga motte iru wake ja nain da
Hosoi eda mo kaze ni fukarete
Shinayaka ni takumashiku naru

Moshi kimi ga kuyashisa ni naku no nara
Oshikoroshita koe kakusanakute ii
Donna toki mo jishin to fuan
Mazariatte yume mirun da

Minna ga kaetta guraundo nokotte
Renshuu shiteru koto boku wa shitteru yo

Saa koete yuke!
Ima bokutachi wo...
Mezasu no wa mada mada tooi basho da
Onaji michi wo hashiru mono wo ki ni suru na!
Mae e susume!

Omou you ni kekka wo dasenakute
Jibun ni iradatta koto mo aru darou
Soba no hito ni atatte itemo
Tsugi no chansu ikasenai yo

Senbatsu membaa morete nageku yori
Ima kimi ni dekiru koto doryoku shika nain da

Saa mikaese yo!
Sono jitsuryoku de...
Ashibumi wo suru you ni matsu nay o
Jouge kankei kizukau hodo amakunai
Oite yuku zo

Jibun no gooru wo shikkai mirun da
Taisetsu na mokuteki wa chiimu ga katsu koto sa

Saa koete yuke!
Ima bokutachi wo...
Iiwake wa subete sutesarun da
Kaze no you ni boku no yoko wo sugite yuku
Kimi ga mitai
Saa mikaese yo!
Sono jitsuryoku de...
Sainou wa kisowarete hikaru yo
Yudan shitara
Tsugi wa boku ga oitsuku zo
Kimi no senaka

English

Nobody has a strong heart
From the very beginning
Even the skinniest branches
Become flexible and tough from blowing in the wind

If you’re in tears of frustration
Don’t stifle your sobs
Keep on dreaming all the time
With a mixture of confidence and nervousness

I know you stay behind and practice on the field
When everyone else has gone home

C’mon...overtake
Us now!
Your goal is still far away
Don’t worry about the people running with you
Just go forward!

There must have been times when you’ve been annoyed with yourself
Because you didn’t get the results you wanted
Trying to take out the person next to you
Won’t give you a second chance

You won’t get anywhere complaining that the others are elite players
All you can do is work hard at what you can do

C’mon...show us
What you’re made of!
Don’t wait there treading water
Those on top don’t care about those on the bottom
Leave ‘em behind

Keep your eyes on your goal
The most important thing is that the team wins

C’mon...overtake
Us now!
Throw away all the excuses
I want to see you run like the wind
Past me
C’mon...show us
What you’re made of!
We shine through competition
If you rest on your laurels
I’ll overtake
You again
