Bang Bang Lyrics

And this is the last of the coupling songs. It's a good one too! I like the rhythm of this song, but it's rather suggestive.

If your body feels hot too, then let’s play the game

Are You Ready Now? Lyrics

A typical catchy Arashi song? I think I need to hear it more.

Kanji:

Let's go Are you ready now? Let's sing It's a brand new world
Let's play Ready, steady, go! With you Oh, yeah, yeah
Let's go Are you ready now? Let's sing It's a brand new world
Let's play Ready, steady, go! With me

肩のチカラ抜いて 深呼吸 風が胸で煌めく
Oh! 上昇中のlife 羽ばたいて 溢れる鼓動のままに

今日も 変わり続ける街並を くぐり抜けて
君と 見つめる明日が 騒ぐ そう1・2・3!

ざわめき高鳴る期待と 限りない感情 抱いて ずっと駆け抜けて行こう
輝く瞬間 刻んで この舞台の先へ いつだって ここから

Let's go Are you ready now? Let's sing It's a brand new world
Let's play Ready, steady, go! With you

眩しすぎる太陽 鮮やか 突き抜けてく青空
Now! 上映中のlife スクリーンは 君と見上げる夜空

いつか 振り返る日が来る「今」を 満たすように
君と 見つけた夢を 放つ そう1・2・3!

どこかでためらう未来へ 止まらない衝動 知って そっと歩き出す希望
軽々想像 越えて 叶えたい夢だって 羽ばたいて このまま

ざわめき高鳴る期待と 限りない感情 抱いて ずっと駆け抜けて行こう
輝く瞬間 刻んで この舞台の先へ いつだって ここから

Are you ready now? It's a brand new world
Ready, steady, go! Oh, yeah, yeah

Are you ready now?

Romanji:

Let's go Are you ready now? Let's sing It's a brand new world
Let's play Ready, steady, go! With you Oh, yeah, yeah
Let's go Are you ready now? Let's sing It's a brand new world
Let's play Ready, steady, go! With me

Kata no chikara nuite Shinkokyuu Kaze ga mune de kirameku
Oh! Joushouchuu no life Habataite Afureru kodou no mama ni

Kyou mo Kawari tsudzukeru machinami wo Kuguri nukete
Kimi to Mitsumeru asu ga Sawagu Sou 1, 2, 3!

Zawameki takanaru kitai to Kagiri nai kanjou Daite Zutto kake nukete ikou
Kagayaku shunkan Kizande Kono butai no saki e Itsudatte Koko kara

Let's go Are you ready now? Let's sing It's a brand new world
Let's play Ready, steady, go! With you

Mabushi sugiru taiyou Azayaka Tsuki nuketeku aozora
Now! Joueichuu no life Sukuri-n wa Kimito miageru yozora

Itsuka Furikaeru hi ga kuru “ima” wo Mitasu you ni
Kimi to Mitsuketa yume wo Hanatsu Sou 1, 2, 3!

Dokoka de tamerau mirai e Tomaranai shoudou Shitte Sotto aruki dasu kibou
Karugaru souzou Koete Kanaetai yume datte Habataite Kono mama

Zawameki takanaru kitai to Kagiri nai kanjou Daite Zutto kake nukete ikou
Kagayaku shunkan Kizande Kono butai no saki e Itsudatte Koko kara

Are you ready now? It's a brand new world
Ready, steady, go! Oh, yeah, yeah

Are you ready now?

English:

Let's go Are you ready now? Let's sing It's a brand new world
Let's play Ready, steady, go! With you Oh, yeah, yeah
Let's go Are you ready now? Let's sing It's a brand new world
Let's play Ready, steady, go! With me

Relax your tense shoulders Take a deep breath The wind sparkles in your heart
Oh! Rising up in this life Flapping my wings With my heart pounding hard

Passing through the ever-changing city streets again today
The future I'm seeing you is about to make some noise That's right, 1, 2, 3!

The noisy beating of my heart holds expectation and an endless amount of feelings Let's keep running
Remember the shining moments and go beyond this stage It always starts from here

Let's go Are you ready now? Let's sing It's a brand new world
Let's play Ready, steady, go! With you

The brilliant sun shined brightly, piercing through the blue sky
Now! The movie of our life is playing now The screen is the night sky we're looking up at

So that some day when we look back, we'll feel satisfied with our life “now”
We'll set free the dream we found together That's right, 1, 2, 3!

Somewhat hesitant to go toward the future, but aware of the unstoppable urge to take a step, it becomes my hope to keep walking
Even the dreams that easily surpassed your imagination, you want to make them come true So flap your wings like this

The noisy beating of my heart holds expectation and an endless amount of feelings Let's keep running
Remember the shining moments and go beyond this stage It always starts from here

Are you ready now? It's a brand new world
Ready, steady, go! Oh, yeah, yeah

Are you ready now?

<3

Affection Lyrics

This is a good song, but it's a ballad, so I can't say I'm in love with it. Hopefully everyone else will enjoy it more?

The tales of the seasons we’ve spent together are filled with such dazzling light

Ai no Collection Lyrics

For once, the new single wasn't posted on weibo by the normal fans, so it took a while to find (and decipher the password =_=). Official lyrics up. As usual, please credit when using.

This is how it is Magic that can’t be explained by reason

Fukkatsu Love Lyrics

What a great song to start off the year with. The melody sounds very much like “Yamashita Tetsuro”, especially the high notes and Jun's part. Aiba said (on his radio show) they'd done some dancing in the PV, so I'll be looking forward to seeing it. And a note about “nagasugita haru”; it's something like when a couple has been dating for a long time without ever moving forward toward marriage. *Edit* Thanks to all the clips of the PV on the news, the full version is up. (I was surprised it's in the same "one cut" style as the new PV for another one of my favorite groups. Just when I'd been hoping Arashi would do the same thing, they did. Lucky!)

*Last edit* Okay, the official version is up!

As usual, please credit when using.

Even if I shout, ‘Don’t go’ You won’t hear it

Nihon Yoitoko Makafushigi Lyrics

This is Arashi's cover song of Shonentai's original. It's a rather hilarious song. There are a mountain of notes after the English translation at the bottom to explain all the references.

Once upon a time in a certain village, there was a grandpa and grandma living peacefully

Bokura ga Tsunaideiku Lyrics

Of course, I love Ohno’s little solo to pieces. And the piano is very nice too.

We’re walking on the road

Tsutaetai Koto Lyrics

This somehow sounds very Christmasy, but the message it wants to give is “Thank you for everything”.

Let’s start out to a new tomorrow

Make a Wish Lyrics

This is a very positive song about believing in yourself. The melody is kind of average for me.

The signpost in your heart will take you to a place only you can get to

Masquerade Lyrics

Am I the only one who swears they've heard this melody somewhere else? Like something from the 80's? I actually like this style though.

Please show me the heart you’ve hidden behind that mask

Japonesque Lyrics

Okay, I think this one will be even harder to learn the lyrics for. This also uses imagery with nature that it hard to interpret, so please keep that in mind. For this song, I like where the parts overlap the most.

A lullaby on the wind woven by the four season

The Deep End Lyrics

I like how upbeat and powerful this one sounds. It's going to take a lot of repeating to get the lyrics down and be able to keep up.

I want to go deeper

In the Room Lyrics

This is a rather sexy song where two lovers meet each other “in the room”. It seems like it would be a fun song for concerts though.

My fingertips gently trace your rouge lips

Bolero Lyrics

I'm not really sure why they chose this title, considering how the word “bolero” is supposed to be for slow-tempo Latin dance music and I can't really call this song “slow-tempo”, but anyway, it's a fun song to listen to.

Quickly kick out the weakness hidden in your heart

Mikazuki Lyrics

It's just a guess, but I think this song is about the two star-crossed lovers who can only meet once a year on Tanabata. I really enjoyed this song too, even though it's slow paced.

I gently say “good night”

Miyabi Night Lyrics

A story that flows through all the seasons. This one also has a strong Japanese feel to it. The "ta li la"s will probably stick with you.

Even if the seasons change, my feelings won’t
