Good Morning America - Toppa shite ikou (english translation)

突破していこう / Let’s Break Through

Music and Lyrics: Shingo Kanehiro

I planned to stay focused and move forward steadily each day
Every day, every night
I went on the crowded train
And darted through gaps in the crowds
But is the me reflected on the other side of the train window really my ideal?

Hey,
Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello

These repetitive days*
And my thoroughly tamed soul
Woh
These limits that I’ve built up for myself
Let’s break through them
Let’s break through them

I happily gave nothing but excessive flattery**
It was arrogance***
Is my pride buried under the dust somewhere?
Ah, that’s no good
Living like this is no good

Hey, other me in the train window
Open your eyes

Hey,
Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello

These repetitive days
The hopes and dreams that I’d thoughtlessly left behind
These limits that I’ve built up for myself
Let’s break through them
Let’s break through them

Hey,
Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello

Stuck in these repetitive days
Just like I thought, I want to live honestly
Wo
These limits that I’ve built up for myself
Let’s break through them
Let’s break through them

Notes:
*Lit. “The days I piled up”, I think this is like the days don’t have much variation, so it feels like just piling on top of the other
**, *** I’m not sure about these lines at all, they’re probably pretty far off
