Nando Demo (何度でも)

I absolutely love 何度でも by Dreams Come True! I heard it in the airport for the first time in a long time when I was heading to Japan last summer, and I played it often during the rest of my trip. It’s still a “dream” of mine to see Dreams Come True live in concert. Yoshida Miwa is amazing.

こみ上げてくる涙を何回拭いたら
How many times must I wipe these welling tears
伝えたい言葉は届くだろう?
until I can get through to you?

誰かや何かに怒っても出口はないなら
If getting mad doesn’t give me a way out anyway?

何度でも何度でも何度でも立ち上がり呼ぶよ
I’ll keep on, I’ll keep on, I’ll keep on
きみの名前声が涸れるまで
getting back up and calling your name until I’m hoarse
悔しくて苦しくてがんばっても
Even when I’m frustrated and suffering, and
どうしようもない時もきみを思い出すよ
nothing seems to work, I’ll think of you

10000回だめでへとへとになっても
Even if I fail 10,000 times, and I’m all worn out
10001回目は何か変わるかもしれない
The 10,001st time something might change

口にする度本当に伝えたい言葉は
Every time I try, the words I really want to say
ぽろぽろとこぼれて逃げていく
come tumbling out and run away

悲しみに支配させてただ潰されるのなら
If I’ll just give reign to my sadness and be crushed anyway

何度でも何度でも何度でも立ち上がり呼ぶよ
I’ll keep on, I’ll keep on, I’ll keep on
きみの名前声が涸れるまで
getting back up and calling your name until I’m hoarse
落ち込んでやる気ももう底ついて
Even if I’m down and lose the will to go on
がんばれない時もきみを思い出すよ
and the fight goes out of me, I’ll think of you

10000回だめでかっこ悪くても
Even if I fail 10,000 times, and look like a fool
10001回目は何か変わるかもしれない
The 10,001st time something might change

前を向いてしがみついて
I’ll stay positive and hold on
胸掻きむしってあきらめないで叫べ!
I’ll bang my chest — and not give up — and shout!

何度でも何度でも何度でも立ち上がり呼ぶよ
I’ll keep on, I’ll keep on, I’ll keep on
きみの名前声が涸れるまで
getting back up and calling your name until I’m hoarse
悔しくて苦しくてがんばっても
Even when I’m frustrated and suffering, and
どうしようもない時もきみの歌を思い出すよ
nothing seems to work, I’ll think of your songs

この先も躓いて傷ついて傷つけて
Even if I stumble, and get hurt or hurt someone else
終わりのないやり場のない怒りさえ
and there’s no end in sight and I can’t even vent my anger
もどかしく抱きながら
and I get impatient
どうしてわからないんだ?伝わらないんだ?
Why don’t you understand? Why can’t I get through to you?
喘ぎ嘆きながら自分と戦ってみるよ
I’ll fight myself, panting and grieving

10000回だめで望みなくなっても
Even if I fail 10,000 times, and there’s no hope in sight
10001回目は来る
The 10,001st time’ll come

きみを呼ぶ声力にしていくよ何度も
Calling your name will give me strength, and I’ll keep on
明日がその10001回目かもしれない…
Because tomorrow might be that 10,001st time…
