Lyrics

I say...
Hey, hey, hey, START:DASH!!
Hey, hey, hey, START:DASH!!


Ubuge no kotori tachi mo
Itsuka sora ni habataku
Ookina tsuyoi tsubasa de tobu

Akiramecha dame nanda
Sono hi ga zettai kuru
Kimi mo kanjiteru yo ne
Hajimari no kodou

Ashita yo kaware!
Kibou ni kaware!
Mabushii hikari ni terasarete kaware
START!!

Kanashimi ni tozasarete
Naku dake no kimi janai
Atsui mune kitto mirai o kirihiraku hazu sa
Kanashimi ni tozasarete
Naku dake ja tsumaranai
Kitto (kitto) kimi no (yume no)
Chikara (ima o) ugokasu chikara
Shinjiteru yo... dakara START!!

Ameagari no kibun de
Takamaru kitai no naka
Tsumazuita koto sae mo
Omoide ni shiyou

Ashita ga saku yo!
Kibou ga saku yo!
Tanoshii merodii kuchizusami saita
DASH!!

Yorokobi o uketomete
Kimi to boku tsunagarou
Mayoi michi yatto soto e nukedashita hazu sa
Yorokobi o uketomete
Kimi to boku susumu darou
Sore wa (sore wa) tooi (yume no)
Kakera (dakedo) itoshii kakera
Kanata e to... boku wa DASH!!

Mata hitotsu yume ga umare...


Kanashimi ni tozasarete
Naku dake no kimi ja nai
Atsui mune kitto mirai o kirihiraku hazu sa

Yorokobi o uketomete
Kimi to boku tsunagarou
Mayoi michi yatto soto e nukedashita hazu sa
Yorokobi o uketomete
Kimi to boku susumu darou
Sore wa (sore wa) tooi (yume no)
Kakera (dakedo) itoshii kakera
Kanata e to... boku wa DASH!!


Hey, hey, hey, START:DASH!!
Hey, hey, hey, START:DASH!!

I say…
Hey,hey,hey,START:DASH!!
Hey,hey,hey,START:DASH!!


うぶ毛の小鳥たちも
いつか空に羽ばたく
大きな強い翼で飛ぶ

諦めちゃダメなんだ
その日が絶対来る
君も感じてるよね
始まりの鼓動

明日よ変われ!
希望に変われ!
眩しい光に照らされて変われ
START!!

悲しみに閉ざされて
泣くだけの君じゃない
熱い胸 きっと未来を切り開く筈さ
悲しみに閉ざされて
泣くだけじゃつまらない
きっと (きっと) 君の (夢の)
チカラ (いまを) 動かすチカラ
信じてるよ…だから START!!

雨上がりの気分で
高まる期待のなか
躓いたことさえも
思い出にしよう

明日が咲くよ!
希望が咲くよ!
楽しいメロディー口ずさみ咲いた
DASH!!

喜びを受けとめて
君と僕つながろう
迷い道 やっと外へ抜けだした筈さ
喜びを受けとめて
君と僕 進むだろう
それは (それは) 遠い (夢の)
カケラ (だけど) 愛しいカケラ
彼方へと…僕は DASH!!

またひとつ 夢が生まれ…


悲しみに閉ざされて
泣くだけの君じゃない
熱い胸 きっと未来を切り開く筈さ

喜びを受けとめて
君と僕つながろう
迷い道 やっと外へ抜けだした筈さ
喜びを受けとめて
君と僕 進むだろう
それは (それは) 遠い (夢の)
カケラ (だけど) 愛しいカケラ
彼方へと…僕は DASH!!


Hey,hey,hey,START:DASH!!
Hey,hey,hey,START:DASH!!

I say...
Hey, hey, hey, START:DASH!!
Hey, hey, hey, START:DASH!!


Even baby birds swaddled in down
Will someday flap their wings and take to the sky
They'll soar up high with wings that grow big and strong

We won’t ever think of giving up—
Such a grand day will come for us.
Surely you feel it as strong as us.
The initial beat of our wings...

Change for tomorrow!
Change for that higher hope!
Let’s try and change for the better, bathed in a dazzling bright light!
START!!

If you’re imprisoned by a deep sadness,
crying will be the least of your worries.
Allow your burning heart, open a pathway to the future
If you’re imprisoned by a deep sadness,
you will find no joy if you simply cry
Surely (We’re sure) all our dreams (all your dreams)
have the power (right this moment) the bring about change
We believe in you, so let’s START!!

It’s like how you feel after a rainfall
You can feel your anticipation grow
And even if you stumble or fail...
Treasure the memory!

It helps tomorrow bloom
It helps make our hopes blossom
Let’s hum the lively melody that these feelings made bloom,
DASH!!

All you need is to accept our delight,
and then follow our lead and sing along.
We can finally make our way out of that emotional prison.
All you need is to accept our delight,
Follow our lead and you’re sure to advance.
It can feel (and it is) so distant (as our dream)
and maybe it’s (merely) a fragment, but we love it.
That’s why, to the future... we will DASH!!

Yet another dream has been born on this day!

If you’re imprisoned by a deep sadness,
crying will be the least of your worries.
Allow your burning heart, open a pathway to the future

All you need is to accept our delight,
and then follow our lead and sing along.
We can finally make our way out of that emotional prison.
All you need is to accept our delight,
Follow our lead and you’re sure to advance.
It can feel (and it is) so distant (as our dream)
and maybe it’s (merely) a fragment, but we love it.
That’s why, to the future... we will DASH!!


Hey, hey, hey, START:DASH!!
Hey, hey, hey, START:DASH!!
