A.B.C-Z Spirit Lyric Translation

This is a passionate song about having the spirit to drive yourself to reach your goals and never give up. There were a lot of really difficult words in this and I’m sure I’ve made some mistakes but I’ve done my best capture the “spirit” of the song (pun fully intended). The music reminds me heaps of “The Greatest Show” from “The Greatest Showman” too… so bonus for the Hugh Jackman fans of us! (Or is that just me?)

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translation

 

Wo Oh oh… Burning Spirit

Wo Oh oh…  They’ll never take our Spirit

 

Breathing only to answer our own questions

How can we break free? Labyrinth

What will we see? Beautiful things?

Free things? Which is your mind

 

But we want to keep our world all to ourselves

Anyone can see we’re not getting in the way

We’ll sing to tomorrow, our hopes that can’t be shaken

 

Light the flame Wake up

Life is so heart breaking it makes you laugh

Burn out Stand up

Life is so beautiful it makes you cry

Shout out !!

 

Wo Oh oh… Boiling Spirit

Wo Oh oh… They’ll never take our Spirit

 

Whenever you think “for better or worse”

Stand tall and take the wounds Everyday

Can we take hold of the future we longed for?

Will we reach it? Don’t think try

 

I feel the beat throbbing and ringing in the Anthem

If it’s destiny we should fight for it

We’ll raise our muddy hands and sing

 

Let go Bring up

Life is so lost it makes you free

Don’t give in Keep on

Life is so violent it binds you

Shout out !!

 

Wo Oh oh… Trust your Spirit

Wo Oh oh… Drum up your Spirit

 

At the limits of the cycle of winning and losing

Because the rule is to leap into the proof of our existence

Bid those barely visible preconceptions Bye

Force out your courage Drown out the noise

Set your gaze no-where but forwards

 

Don’t stop Go on

Because giving up is the beginning of the end

Believe Don’t give up

Bound so tightly that it makes you feel alive?

It all depends on you

 

Light the flame Wake up

Life is so heart breaking it makes you laugh

Burn out Stand up

Life is so beautiful it makes you cry

Shout out !!

 

Wo Oh oh… Boiling Spirit

Wo Oh oh… They’ll never take our Spirit

 

Wo Oh oh… Trust your Spirit

Wo Oh oh… Drum up your Spirit

 

Wo Oh oh…
