A.B.C-Z 孤独のRun away Lyric Translation

“Lonely Run away” is a song about not giving up on your dreams or feeling alone. Ebi will be there to support you on your journey no matter how long.

As a note, this translation is more of an interpretation… A lot of the song is sung first person (I will, we will) but parts indicate that it’s also directed at someone/s else (Since Japanese is vague af. Context can only get you so far but hey, who needs subjects in their sentences really? Choose your own adventure ) I think it sounds better when it’s all directed AT someone so some lines aren’t quite the same, like the “we will be your wings” in Japanese is just “we will spread wings” Whose wings? Your wings? My wings? Our wings? So I warped it a bit in my interpretation to make it more consistent with other parts of the song. 

Original Japanese: Utaten 

English Translation

 

Lonely Run away take my hand The map of the future is wide

We will always be standing here for you

Wipe away the sweat you’ve shed and walk on little by little

On the start of your distant, never-ending journey

 

The overflowing daily messages in this New Age that can’t be changed

As you give-in to the boredom

 

Throw open the rusty door now

And don’t forget the dreams you have locked away

 

These feelings can’t be stopped If you notice it then Let It Go

Overcome the sadness now and fly

 

Fly away to tomorrow Searching for the lost key to your heart

We will always be your wings

Wipe away the tears you’ve shed and soar high in the sky

I know you’ll shine blindingly bright

 

Face your uncertainty as you search for that Piece of Dream

Change pain into passion

 

The feelings you have hidden in your heart If you don’t give up on it Let It Go

Aim to reach the world you saw in your dreams one day

 

Lonely Run away take my hand The map of the future is wide

We will always be standing here for you

Wipe away the sweat you’ve shed and walk on little by little

On the start of your distant, never-ending journey

 

If you bring back the smile from that day

Drive My Life You’ll make it through

 

Fly away to tomorrow Searching for the lost key to your heart

We will always be your wings

Wipe away the tears you’ve shed and soar high in the sky

I know you’ll shine blindingly bright

 

Lonely Run away take my hand The map of the future is wide

We will always be standing here for you

Wipe away the sweat you’ve shed and walk on little by little

On the start of your distant, never-ending journey
