A.B.C-Z 夜明けのガンスリンガー Lyric Translation

「Daybreak Gunslinger」is one of my favourite songs off the new album 🤠 It’s a passionate song about keeping strong to your heart and beliefs as you try and achieve your goal, never wavering like the aim of the cowboys gun.

(Claire has a soft spot for passionate songs with creative imagery, can you tell?)

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translation 

 

It all started the moment I opened my eyes

I won’t look back I’m a gunslinger

If I keep moving forward into the mist I’ll shoot down my targets

I throw away my wicked thoughts amongst the worthless trash

 

The devil that lives nestled in my heart whispers

“Let’s do do this the easy way” “You’re gonna mess it up anyway”

I’m my own rival

 

bang bang Fire away

The sound of my dancing heart

Instantly releases my emotions

bang bang Dancing in the sky

Passion becomes my bullets

Oh- Oh-

 

bang bang The World

It’s right in front of me, it’s within my grasp

Because I won’t run, because I won’t give up

bang bang The future

I’ll shoot it down Gunslinger

 

Sad things fall with the rain

I head towards brighter things, to sunny places

Stumbling sometimes and redoing things too

I’m a gunslinger that keeps going without losing spirit

 

I’m in no hurry to where my heart leads me

It must point me along the road to truth

If it says it then it must be so

 

bang bang Echoing

My aim is just the same as that day

Because I’ve overcome the worst now

bang bang Always

There is no such thing as an endless night

Oh- Oh-

 

bang bang The wind

My body and soul ride along

The scent of youth is burnt into my chest

bang bang That’s right

You’re a gunslinger too

 

I don’t want to see a time where

A cold wind blows every day and I stand around and do nothing

Clumsy as I am, the aim of my pistol

Hasn’t wavered until now

 

bang bang Fire away

The sound of my dancing heart

Instantly releases my emotions

bang bang Dancing in the sky

Passion becomes my bullets

Oh- Oh-

 

bang bang The World

It’s right in front of me, it’s within my grasp

Because I won’t run, because I won’t give up

bang bang The future

I’ll shoot it down Gunslinger
