[LYRICS & TRANSLATION] Hey! Say! JUMP - I am

I love how strong the "self awareness" is in this song's lyrics. I think it's not about shallow self-encouragement but being aware of who you are, being strong in your own resolve, making your own decision, standing up for yourself, and feeling complete on your own without needing to belong to someone else makes so much difference in life. 🧡

Jnet describes this song as a flash of hope in one's struggle to answer the universal question about where we come from.

From Double A-side Single: I am / Muah Muah
This song is used as theme song for TV Tokyo drama Boku wa Doko kara starring member Nakajima Yuto

Lyricist: Meerkat
Composer: Furuse Kai


ROMAJI

Mabuta o akereba sashikonda
Hikari ni ugokidasu karada
Sukoshi oogesa kamoshirenai kedo
Ikiteru kanji ga shitanda

Risou to genjitsu wa doko made mo anbaransu
Chikadzukeba hanarete ikunda
Hate no nai michi no ue de ashita o sagashita

Face myself yuuki kakagete
(Gensou to meisou dandan kokoro Down Down)
Fuan o oikoshite
Mada daremo shiranai basho e

Tomerarenai kimochi no kotae I can't find it
Kitto kono mama ja onaji darou
Darenimo narenai boku no jinsei da
Kotoba wa kokoro ni yadoru
Sakebe
Sakebe
Cry of the soul

"Dareka" ni hitsuyou to sarete
"Dareka" ni kobamarerun darou
"Dareka" ga boku o tsukutteiru
Omoikomi ni I lost my way

Demo chigau I am me
Tanoshikute kanashikute
Hoka no dare no mono demo nai
Subete boku ga kimetanda
Mou kakugo wa kimeta

Break the rules Kakikaereba ii
(Bukiyou ni egakidasu you ni)
Nando mo nandodemo
Oreta kokoro kibou ni kaeru

Machigai o osorete fumidasenai no wa
Itsuka no koukai ni tsunagaru darou
Yuragu koto no nai ishi o yado shite
Konnan o norikoeteiku
Sakebe
Sakebe
Cry of the soul

Tokidoki kangaerunda boku wa
Doko kara yattekitan datte
Marude imi no nai souzou de sura
Ima wa tashikana ashiato e kawaru
Believe in yourself

Tomerarenai kimochi no kotae I can't find it
Kitto kono mama ja onaji darou
Darenimo narenai boku no jinsei da
Kotoba wa kokoro ni yadoru
Sakebe
Sakebe
Cry of the soul



ENGLISH TRANSLATION

When I open my eyelids, it illuminates
A body dancing in the light
It might be a little exaggerated
But it makes me feel alive

Ideals and reality are unbalance everywhere
The closer you get the further it becomes
I searched for tomorrow on an endless road

Face myself, and putting up a courage
(Illusions and misconceptions gradually in my heart going Down Down)
Over passing my insecurities
To a place no one knows yet

The answer to my unstoppable feelings - I can't find it
Surely if I stay as I am, it'll just be the same
My life that can't be anyone else's
These words that dwell in the heart
Shout them out
Shout them out
Cry of the soul

"Someone" will need it
"Someone" will probably refuse it
"Someone" is making me
To be under the impression that I lost my way

But no, I am me, having fun and being sad
I don't belong to anyone else
Everything was decided by myself
I've already decided on my resolve

Break the rules, it's okay to rewrite them
(Clumsily, as if to delineate)
Over and over again
Transforming a broken heart into hope

Being afraid of making mistakes and not stepping forward
Are connected to future regrets
Keeping these unwavering will
And overcoming difficulties
Shout them out
Shout them out
Cry of the soul

Sometimes I wonder
About where I came from
As though meaningless imaginations
Is now turned into solid footprints
Believe in yourself

The answer to my unstoppable feelings - I can't find it
Surely if I stay as I am, it'll just be the same
My life that can't be anyone else's
These words that dwell in the heart
Shout them out
Shout them out
Cry of the soul
