Yamato 2199 Song Lyrics

IMPORTANT NOTE: As you’re probably aware, translation from Japanese to English is an art. As content becomes increasingly interpretive, it becomes an abstract art. Song lyrics and poetry fall into this category, since thoughts are often communicated in a fragmentary fashion with unconventional context. Thus, while two different translators may agree on the intent of a song, they may completely disagree on how its ideas are expressed.

In all cases below, the given translation should be considered one possible interpretation of the lyrics and not necessarily the definitive one. The goal is simply to provide access to the thematic intent of each song and thus increase the dimension of your listening experience. Alternate translations are welcome.

The phonetic version is provided for singalong purposes. (Good luck!)

The Space Battleship Yamato theme is covered separately here.

Listen to the movie version (by Isao Sasaki) here and the TV version (by Project Yamato 2199) here.

May the light of the stars shine forever

Believe
A star will shine today
Above your head

Even far away
It pours down onto us
The same brilliance

Surely it is the way to return
A small hope to light it up

To the sky you gaze upon
If I pray to eternity for a connection
Even in days of sorrow
Can we meet once again?

The heart knows it is all right
Will it be a mutual promise?

Because of love
I will march across the stars
Even if I stop

Far away
From a prayer for safety
Wings are born

White feathers, Strong feathers
spread a gentle dream

Each and every life
is connected to the eternal story
waiting to meet in the cycle of time
lonely flickering

Ah fate calls out to the heart
Will you return one day?

Hope is the future, the pulse of the galaxy
Toward a lonely tomorrow
I know that it will not arrive
But I can’t help reaching out my hand

Each and every life
is connected to the eternal story
waiting to meet in the cycle of time
lonely flickering

Ah fate calls out to the heart
Will you return one day?

You who know the beautiful Earth

The unknown calls to us
Does your courage burn to go there?

For everyone to survive together we rush on a journey
for happiness
Though there is pain and sadness
We will not be defeated

Those who know the beautiful earth
Restore its wonders
Bring it back, bring it back, the road to tomorrow
Not afraid anymore
Determined to reach the destination

We carry our fate and our life
Dreaming of the buds of a blue Earth

The journey is long, we will all smile together at
the resurrection
To fight hard with gentle force
Is the pride of humanity

When this beautiful Earth shines for eternity
Protect its brightness
Hand it down, Hand it down, the road to tomorrow
Not afraid anymore
Determined to reach the destination

For everyone to survive together we rush on a journey
for happiness
Though there is pain and sadness
We will not be defeated

Those who know the beautiful earth
Restore its wonders
Bring it back, bring it back, the road to tomorrow
Not afraid anymore

When this beautiful Earth shines for eternity
Protect its brightness
Hand it down, Hand it down, the road to tomorrow
Not afraid anymore
Determined to reach the destination

Believe that only the future has the answer
no one knows
Memory only strikes at the heart to find
the truth
Do not forget it…

Many stars lie beyond the spiral of memory
Sparkling in what looks like
the light of memory

Ah 〜

Look through the endless darkness to find the shining
light of ideals
Those who know the pain of loving someone know
the future
Bound to it

Many stars lie beyond the spiral of memory
Sparkling in what looks like
the light of memory

Steady as she goes across the sea of stars

No matter how steep or far the road is, I will not give up
Endless tears flowing down my cheek are not
a white flag of surrender

I go and become the wings of a loved one
Gather up the shattered dream and take it to the
end of the universe

Steady as she goes, row strongly and hold your thoughts
close to your chest
Steady as she goes, a ray of light shines through your despair

No matter how hard every day is, I swore an oath
not to run away
My chest swells with the power of
my peoples’ hope

I look into space and close my eyes,
seeing that battlefield once again
I face forward without looking back on the shame of yesterday

Steady as she goes, I made a promise for the future
to my friend on that day
Steady as she goes, to make it back to this place
someday by all means

On the road to the sea of stars our course is endless
The track of tears becomes the trace of the dream
running through the night sky

Steady as she goes, row strongly and hold your thoughts
close to your chest
Steady as she goes, a ray of light shines through your despair

Bathed in light, yet the journey is not over

Rest in Peace

Forever

This star is the only one
If you look for something so beautiful
It is not something you can see
You will find it inside anyone, love is the answer

Sorrow and strife
May cloud the blue sky
The overlapping warmth
Becomes a light to illuminate the world

A wish to the infinite universe
All is forgiven and we all laugh together
A dream from the bottom of my heart, not a trick of the eye
Walk on no matter what tomorrow brings
Lights

In the cycle of time
If there is something that never changes
It is something without form
The answer that comes to you is joy

When there is more to protect
There is hesitation before kindness
I believe you should always
Choose the way that follows hope

Go without fear no matter what
Happiness is always at your side
Yes, the pain in your heart is the poetry of passion
Echoing forever without fading away

If you have nothing special
Only the strength to yearn for it
Bound to the limits of time
Create the trace of a miracle

A wish to the infinite universe
All is forgiven and we all laugh together
A dream from the bottom of my heart, not a trick of the eye
Walk on no matter what tomorrow brings
Together with you no matter what tomorrow brings
Forever

Fight for… Liberty

Just WAR

Fight for…liberty

you get down.
A reckless figure is clumsy
but kick out Bitter “cold” and sorry
I was numb but jealous of everything

Many times this time bet A reason to fight
this time bet the chase is satisfying
Life’s answer is invisible to everyone

Beaten down too long by too much rain
Innocent dreams and ideals betray my karma
It always seems that what I want
and don’t want overlap
If there are two ways in life,
I won’t take the hard one
Just this once if there’s only one chance
I’d give it all up along with my life
For the strength to bring back tomorrow WAR

you get down.
Morning comes along with night
Look for escape, to those who escape admitting defeat
No hand in the world reaches out gently

Even though this time it’s over before it begins
For all those    fade out bet
without a reason to fight
There is no forgiveness

Beaten down too long by too much rain
Earnest hope and a silent future, betrayed by karma
In the days when I forgot how to live
I stood before a mirror and blamed myself
But when I think of you, nothing is beyond me
I’d give it all up along with my life
For the strength to remain standing WAR.

Fight at a pace beyond all the specs
To a world with no need for flattery
In the midst of life and death
Along with those who forget how to life
Time again for hope
Setting out resolute in an uncertain future
Life has all the answers

Beaten down too long by too much rain
I don’t think about the wounds any more
Don’t get numb to the pain of others
If there are two ways in life,
I won’t take the hard one
Just this once if there’s only one chance
Even if I’m already hurt and injured
For the strength to bring back tomorrow WAR.

Strength for the days when there is nothing left WAR.
Right now nothing is certain

When you fight you feel alone
But don’t you see you’re not alone?
Every life can have strength WAR.

Fight for…liberty

An ordinary man and an ordinary woman
Part of a group, suddenly
become special people
The pain of yesterday and the pain of the future
Suddenly reconciled on
a meaningful day

I want to meet, in a different way than yesterday I want to meet
I want to touch, in a different way than yesterday
I want to touch

To those who were hurt, to lives that were hurt
Only they understand, those good love words
Only they understand, those good love words

Please take my hand on a windy night
In this wind I hesitate to say the silly things I could say
before yesterday
I wish for more than I could have alone
You smile at me as if you had never cried

I want to speak, in a different way than yesterday
I want to speak
I feel sorrow, in a different way than yesterday I feel sorrow

To those who are cold, to lives that are cold
They become the key to the door of the heart, tender
love words
They become the key to the door of the heart, tender
love words

To those who were hurt, to lives that were hurt
Only they understand, those good love words
Only they understand, those good love words

Even if I am reborn many times, I want to find you again
Thank you for this feeling I can never forget
best of my love

Hey, we can face each other without fear, with our real faces
Hey, surely we were just two people passing by

I get anxious about trivial things, but I can
open my heart to you
Some days when I can only blame myself

Don’t say anything, just take my hand and hold me
close and warm
That’s when I realize I didn’t notice the important presence
right in front of me

Countless chances, but it was inevitable I would fall for you
It’s all a treasure, I know that now
best of my love
Even if I am reborn many times, I want to find you again
Thank you for this feeling I can never forget
best of my love

One night I confessed in a dream, so much, so much
best of my love
I don’t want to lose my pain and sadness, surely, surely
best of my love

Hey, it’s always hard to talk about things we need to say
So, I always listen until these cloudy feelings clear up

But it’s impossible to argue so I go quiet and
it just troubles you
All I can do is look aside and try to read your mind

A vision comes to mind, a city scene with two phantoms
walking arm in arm
Surely it happened even though
time changes memory

I can’t say enough about the kindness that you showed me
I’ll never let it go, I keep it deep in my heart
best of my love
Gently reminding me of you when I want to cry
I can’t hold it in, thank you, I overflow now
best of my love

Huddled together watching the sunrise, so much, so much
best of my love
The tears you showed for the first time, surely, surely
best of my love

Whether or not we can meet again
It will never disappear, this memory one of me

Countless chances, but it was inevitable I would fall for you
It’s all a treasure, I know that now
best of my love
Even if I am reborn many times, I want to find you again
Thank you for this feeling I can never forget
best of my love

One night I confessed in a dream, so much, so much
best of my love
I don’t want to lose my pain and sadness, surely, surely
best of my love

Sukoshi dzutsu irowokaeru    Sora wo futari nagame teta
Asu no yakusoku mo nai mama    Tsunaida te nigiri kaeshita

Owari ni shita ho ga itte    Atama de wakatte mo
Kokoro ga iu koto wo kikanakute
Anata wo nakushitara    Ashita ni nani wo omoeba i?
Oshiete yo

Aishi teru te iwanaide    Mata tsuraku natte shimaukara
Ima wa tada    Nani mo iwazu ni    Yuhi ga sugata kesu made
Soba ni ite

Aeba mata egao ni naru    Hanarereba namida ni naru
Chikadzuku hodo ni motomete    Anata wo komara sete ita

Kanawanakutatte itte    Kakugo wa shi tetakedo
Mo jibun ni uso tsukenakute
Tsutawaru nukumori ni    Ima yori motto nanika wo
Kitai shi teru

Arigato te iwanaide    Aenaku natte shimau ki ga shite
Ima wa mada hohoende ite    Kienai kanashimi o sotto
Kakushite ite

Ai teru te iwanaide    Kokoro yusabura rete shimaukara
Nanimokamo    Yurushi aetara    Anata ni amae raretara

Aishi teru tte iwanaide    Mata tsuraku natte shimaukara
Ima wa tada nani mo iwazu ni    Yuhi ga sugata kesu made
Soba ni ite

The color changes gradually as the two of us look up at the sky
I grasp your hand with no promise for the future

At the end if you know it in your mind you don’t listen
to what the heart says
If I lose you, what should I do tomorrow?
Tell me

Don’t say you love me, that will only make it harder
Don’t say anything, just stand near me until
the sunset erases you

If we meet again I will smile, it will become a tear if we part
I asked to be closer, but it just troubled you

I knew it was too good to be true, and I don’t
lie to myself any more
I expected more warmth than is
coming to me now

Don’t say thank you, I feel that we can never meet again
Sorrow is hidden behind your smile as it
gently fades away

Don’t say you love me, it would just break my heart
We can even forgive each others’ childishness

Don’t say you love me, that will only make it harder
Don’t say anything, just stand near me until
the sunset erases you
