English

AKB–!
48!

Move forward! (Got it!)
Don’t stop! (Got it!)
Walk the road of hope
To the place where the sun rises!

A river! River! River! Blocking your way
A river in your way!
A river! River! River! Of fate
A river that tests you!

Cast aside your doubts!
Show some guts!
Don’t hesitate!
Take a step
Right now! Believe yourself!

Forward, forward!
Go straight forward!
Cross the river!! Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho!

Dreams always
Seem far away
They feel out of your reach
Pick up
One of the stones at your feet
And throw it
With all your might!

There’s a river
Running before your eyes
A big, wide river
Even if it’s deep and dark
Even if the current is fast
You don’t need to be afraid
It may be far away
But, yes, there’s a bank on the other side
Have more faith in yourself

Swim with all your might
Through the dark
Don’t look back! Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho!

When you stretch out your hand
You’ll find your future there
Don’t give up, thinking you can’t reach it
The stone you threw
Will make your dream come true
You won’t even hear it land

There’s a river
Running in your heart too
The river of hard times
Even if things don’t go well
Even if you drown sometimes
Just try again
Don’t give up
There’ll be a bank
You’re sure to get there someday

Get over it!
River!

Ah-ah-ah-ah-
Don’t make excuses to yourself!
Ah-ah-ah-ah-
You won’t know until you try!
Ah-ah-ah-ah-
Nothing for it but to go straight forward!

Keep on walking
Forever, forever, forever
Down the road you’ve chosen!

There’s a river
Running before your eyes
A big, wide river
Even if it’s deep and dark
Even if the current is fast
You don’t need to be afraid
It may be far away
But, yes, there’s a bank on the other side
Have more faith in yourself

There’s a river
Running in your heart too
A river of sweat and tears!
Even if you fail
Even if you’re swept away
Just start over
Never say die
Hang onto your dreams
Until the day your wishes come true

Cross the river!
You can do it!
