Ryu ga Gotoku: Konnan ja Nai!

Lyrics: Ryosuke Horii
Composition: Zenta

KONNANじゃないっ!

アノユメも アコガレも
落書きのままボヤケて 消える寸前
「コレガイイノ?」「コレデイイノ?」
ふてくされてる鏡に 何度も問いかけた

泣きたい日も くじけそうな日も 乗り越えよう
希望(ヒカリ)を浴びなきゃ 夢というツボミは 開かないから

Are you ready GO! 走り出そう! 取り急ぎ さあスタート!
うつむかない! ふりむかない! 明日は絶対もっとShiny!
ジブン次第! 掴め未来!
今すぐスタートボタン 押してみよう
私は こんなんじゃないはず!

Made in 言い訳の
過保護な保守的バリアー 突き破って
「コレガイイヨ」「コレデイイヨ」
耳元囁く悪魔(ジブン)に アッカンベーしてやろうよ

たとえ何滴 流した涙が 空回っても
今日手を抜いたら 憧れは明日も 憧れのままじゃん

あきらめも言い訳も 取りまとめリスタート!
『たられば』にすがるには まだまだ若すぎじゃない?
七転び八起きでGO!
何度もリセットボタン
どんな夢も きっと 困難じゃないはず

泣きたい日も くじけそうな日も 乗り越えよう
希望(ヒカリ)を浴びなきゃ 夢というツボミは 開かないから

Are you ready GO! 走り出そう! 取り急ぎ さあスタート!
うつむかない! ふりむかない! 明日は絶対もっとShiny!
ジブン次第! 掴め未来!
今すぐスタートボタン 押してみよう
私は こんなんじゃないっ!

あきらめも言い訳も 取りまとめリスタート!
『たられば』にすがるには まだまだ若すぎじゃない?
七転び八起きでGO!
何度もリセットボタン
どんな夢も きっと 困難じゃないはず

信じてみよう
私は こんなんじゃないはず!

Konnan ja Nai!

I Can Be More Than This!

with my hopes and dreams
about to blur and vanish before I'd even begun
I sulkily asked the mirror over and over
"Are you okay with this?" "Don't you want more?"

I'll get through the days when I'm disheartened and want to cry
the bud of my dream won't flower unless it's bathed in the light [hope]

are you ready? go! let's start running! get a move on and start!
don't hang your head! don't look back! tomorrow will definitely be even shinier!
it's all up to you! grab onto your future!
it's time to press the start button
I can be more than this!

break through those overprotective, conservative barriers
that you set up with excuses
when you hear your [the devil's] whispers in your ear
"This is fine." "This is where you're meant to be," pull a funny face at it

however many fruitless tears you shed
if you ease up now your hopes will still be just that tomorrow

gather up your excuses and resignations and restart!
aren't you still too young to be hung up on "what if"s?
no matter how many times you fall, pick yourself up and go!
press the reset button again and again
no matter what your dream is, you can achieve it

I'll get through the days when I'm disheartened and want to cry
the bud of my dream won't flower unless it's bathed in the light [hope]

are you ready? go! let's start running! get a move on and start!
don't hang your head! don't look back! tomorrow will definitely be even shinier!
it's all up to you! grab onto your future!
it's time to press the start button
I can be more than this!

gather up your excuses and resignations and restart!
aren't you still too young to be hung up on "what if"s?
no matter how many times you fall, pick yourself up and go!
press the reset button again and again
no matter what your dream is, you can achieve it

I believe
that I can be more than this!
