Just the Beginning

Romaji Lyrics English Translation

Outou se yo my hidden dragon
Mamorikirenai yo anymore
Iki mo tsukenai joukyou
Answer me, over!

Nee zenbu miteiru nara
Zettai kanjiterun desho?
Nani no kikkake de hatsudou
Oshiete

(Last despair) Donna ni kibou ga
(Calls first hope) Chiisakutemo
Kakete mitai kara!

Atarashiku naru made
Jibun ga kawaru made
Negaitsuzukeru no nara itsuka kitto
Mune ni nemuru chikara
Kono koe de mezamete
Ending is just the beginning, goes on!

Tameshitekuru my hidden dragon
Dore dake norikonaseru ka wo
Youkoso moroha no kibou
I’m not afraid

Jibun ga kizutsuku koto ni
Osore nante kanjite nai
Tsumari zetsubou wa boku no
Naka ni nai

(Last despair) Dakedo sukuenai
(Calls first hope) Egao dake ga
Boku wo kizutsukeru

Tsugi no jibun no tame
Koukai shinai tame
Tamerai tomaru koto wa nai
Tatakainuku
Mune ni nemuru chikara
Sono tsuyosa ataete
Ending is just the beginning, goes on!

(Last despair) Itsudemo owari wa
(Calls first hope) Hajimari no hajimari sa
(Last despair) Dakara kono sekai ni wa
(Calls first hope) Owari nante aru wake nai
Kono subete wa mirai he to
Tsunagatteyuku

Atarashiku naru made
Jibun ga kawaru made
Negaitsuzukeru no nara itsuka kitto
Mune ni nemuru chikara
Kono koe de mezamete
Ending is just the beginning, yeah!

Tsugi no jibun no tame
Koukai shinai tame
Tamerai tomaru koto wa nai
Tatakainuku
Mune ni nemuru chikara
Sono tsuyosa ataete
Ending is just the beginning, goes on!

Can you hear me, my hidden dragon?
I don’t think I can protect them anymore
It’s got me shaken to my core
Answer me, over!

You can see everything I do through my eyes
So you must feel how this eats me up inside
What have I gotta do to tame your might?
I need to know!

(Last despair) Even in the darkest hour
(Calls first hope) When all light seems lost
I’ll always believe in hope!

I know I can be reborn anew
I know I can change, that much is true
If I can keep on believing then I know it won’t be long
Hear my voice, oh dragon in my heart
Now awaken to this brand new start
The ending is just the beginning, life goes on!

You wanna test me, my hidden dragon?
Wanna see just how much I can take?
If my hope bites back, then I won’t break
I’m not afraid

I don’t care what’s gonna happen to me
Being afraid’s an impossibility
There’s no cracks for you to try and break free
I won’t despair!

(Last despair) The only thing that hurts me now
(Calls first hope) is when I see a smile
fall apart before my eyes!

I just want to face the brand new day
Without regrets to cloud my way
So now I won’t ever give up the fight,
I’ve just gotta be strong!
Hear my voice, oh dragon in my heart
Unto me your power now impart
The ending is just the beginning, life goes on!

(Last despair) So when life closes a door
(Calls first hope) That’s just another opening to you
(Last despair) So if it feels like the end is near
(Calls first hope) The world’s not gonna end, not that easy
Just know that everything that you’ve been through
Shapes a new future for you!

I know I can be reborn anew
I know I can change, that much is true
So if I just believe in myself, I know it won’t be long
Hear my voice, oh dragon in my heart
Awaken to this brand new start
The ending is just the beginning, yeah!

I want to face the brand new day
Without regret to cloud my way
So now I won’t ever give up the fight,
I’ve just gotta be strong!
Hear my voice, oh dragon in my heart
Unto me your power now impart
The ending is just the beginning, life goes on!

So umm. I may have tried to make this translation scan to the original lyrics. Also rhyme, in places, where it made sense to do so.

Yeah, I… I don’t know what came over me either. I might do another more literal translation to go along with this, cause I did kinda fudge things a bit to make the rhyme scheme work in places. I could probably have made it work better if I wasn’t so slavishly resistant to changing any of the existing English in the original, too.

One thought on “Just the Beginning

  1. I’d actually really love to see Missing Piece translated in this style. While it’s associated with what are collectively the worst set of final form fights in Rider history, the song itself is great.
