Lyrics

TV Version

強くなれる理由を知った 僕を連れて進め

泥だらけの走馬灯に酔う こわばる心
震える手は掴みたいものがある それだけさ
夜の匂いに (I spent all 30 nights)
空睨んでも (staring into the sky)
変わっていけるのは自分自身だけ それだけさ

強くなれる理由を知った 僕を連れて進め

どうしたって!
消せない夢も 止まれない今も
誰かのために強くなれるなら
何度でも立ち上がれ
世界に打ちのめされて負ける意味を知った
紅蓮の華よ咲き誇れ! 運命を照らして

Tsuyoku nareru riyū o shi ta boku o tsure te susume

Doro darake no souma tō ni you kowabaru kokoro
Furueru te wa tsukami tai mono ga aru sore dake sa
Yoru no nioi ni (I spent all 30 nights)
Sora niran de mo (staring into the sky)
Kawa te ikeru no wa jibun jishin dake sore dake sa

Tsuyoku nareru riyū o shi ta boku o tsure te susume

Dō shi tatte!
Kese nai yume mo tomare nai ima mo
Dare ka no tame ni tsuyoku nareru nara
Arigatō kanashimiyo
Sekai ni uchinomesarete makeru imi wo shitta
guren no hanayo sakihokore! Unmei wo terashite.

Now I know why I can be strong
Take me with you and keep moving forward

Reeling from the sight of my grim past
My heart stiffens up
There's something my trembling hands seek to grasp
And that's all

Catching the scent of the night
I glare at the sky
But the only thing I can change is myself
And that's all

Now I know why I can be strong
Take me with you and keep moving forward

No matter what
Even if dreams can't be erased and the present is unstoppable
If I can become stronger for someone else
Then just rise up again and again

Overwhelmed by the world, now I know what it means to lose
Crimson flowers bursting into bloom
Illuminating my destiny[8]

強くなれる理由を知った 僕を連れて進め

泥だらけの走馬灯に酔う こわばる心
震える手は掴みたいものがある それだけさ
夜の匂いに (I spent all 30 nights)
空睨んでも (Staring into the sky)
変わっていけるのは自分自身だけ それだけさ

強くなれる理由を知った 僕を連れて進め

どうしたって!
消せない夢も 止まれない今も
誰かのために強くなれるなら
ありがとう 悲しみよ
世界に打ちのめされて負ける意味を知った
紅蓮の華よ咲き誇れ! 運命を照らして

イナビカリの雑音が耳を刺す 戸惑う心
優しいだけじゃ守れないものがある? わかってるけど
水面下で絡まる善悪 透けて見える偽善に天罰
(tell me why, tell me why, tell me why, tell me)
I don't need you~
逸材の花より 挑み続け咲いた一輪が美しい

乱暴に敷き詰められた トゲだらけの道も
本気の僕だけに現れるから 乗り越えてみせるよ
簡単に片付けられた 守れなかった夢も
紅蓮の心臓に根を生やし この血に宿ってる

人知れず儚い 散りゆく結末
無情に破れた 悲鳴の風吹く
誰かの笑う影 誰かの泣き声
誰もが幸せを願ってる

どうしたって!
消せない夢も 止まれない今も
誰かのために強くなれるなら
ありがとう 悲しみよ
世界に打ちのめされて負ける意味を知った
紅蓮の華よ咲き誇れ! 運命を照らして

(tell me why, tell me why, tell me why, tell me)
I don't need you~
itsuzai no hana yori idomitsuzuke saita ichirin ga utsukushī

Ranbō ni shikitsumerareta togedarake no michi mo
honki no boku dake ni arawarerukara norikoete miseruyo
kantan ni katazukerareta mamorenakatta yume mo
guren no shinzō ni ne wo hayashi kono chi ni yadotteru

Hitoshirezu hakanai chiriyuku ketsumatsu
mujō ni yabureta himei no kaze fuku
dareka no warau kage dareka no nakigoe
Dare mo ga shiawase wo negatteru

Dō shi tatte!
Kese nai yume mo tomare nai ima mo
Dare ka no tame ni tsuyoku nareru nara
Arigatō kanashimiyo
Sekai ni uchinomesarete makeru imi wo shitta

Unmei wo terashite.
