KANA-BOON

Boruto the Movie Theme Song, Diver, Lyrics

Translator’s Note: Normally I wait until the Japanese lyrics are fully out before translating, but this song’s just so beautiful I’m dead. And luckily kana-boon sing their words very clearly, lol. But because I like being clear, I typed up the romaji and Japanese lyrics too (tried putting a read more but it keeps making the post disappear as undefined so I got rid of it, sorry!).

That said, you can listen to the song here (I would’ve made an audio post but Tumblr’s terms of service pricks at my conscience lol), and I hope you enjoy this translation!


Diver by KANA-BOON

English Lyrics:

Any time, even now,
We’re steadily bearing fruit,
Even now, we’re leaping up and taking off.

As the sun rises today, again, I take a step forwards.
I should be different from yesterday but,
Why don’t you recognise that?
Violent dissatisfaction swirls around inside my heart

Even though there are so many things I’ve never seen,
So many things I’ve never heard,
The thing that’s reflected in my blue eyes is…

-any time, even now- your shadow that’s running far ahead of me,
Hey, I don’t have any intentions of just waiting around!
So any time, even now, we’re steadily bearing fruit,
Even now, we’re leaping up and taking off.

Wanting to be acknowledged, I stomped my feet in frustration,
There’s something vexing that I can’t put into words.
As much as I wished and wished to become stronger,
I ended up spinning my wheels without moving forwards.

I acted tough, acted tough some more, said there was nothing that scared me.
I laughed and glossed it over, kept being unable to say the truth,
I got surly, I got irritated, I couldn’t do anything right,
I said it was useless, and ground to a halt.

Even though I didn’t have have any more courage,
I kept hating to lose, tears falling again,
Inside this whirlpool of endless anxiety and discord,
I wonder when did the sun set and the day end?

Even if there’s rain, even if there’s wind,
I’ll take it all and keep moving forwards,
I can do it, I’ll say, and dive in!

Any time, even now,
We’re steadily bearing fruit,
Even now, we’ve taken off flying.
Can you see my figure, I wonder?

Although worn out and dirty,
This was the thing that I had wanted,
Right now, see, it’s right here.


Romaji lyrics:

itsu datte, ima datte,
bokura wa chanto mi wo musunde
ima datte, tobitatte yuku

kyou mo hi ga noboru to, ippou fumidasu
kinou no jibun to wa chigau hazu nanoni na
doushite kizuite kurenain darou?
tsunotta fuman ga kokoro no naka de uzuku

mita koto nai mono bakari demo
kiita koto nai mono bakari demo
kono aoi me ni utsuru no wa…

itsu datte ima datte touku mukou hashiru kage
boku datte tada matte iru wake janai kara
itsu datte ima datte bokura wa chanto mi wo musunde
ima datte tobitatte yuku

mitomeraretai to jidanda fundetanda
kotoba ni dekinai kuyashisa ga soko ni aru
tsuyoku naritai to negaeba negau hodo
karamawari shite shimau

tsuyogatte, tsuyogatte, kowai mono shirazu datte
mata waratte, gomakashite, honne wa ienai mama
iya ni natte, ira datte, umaku dekinai jibun ga ite

itsu datte, ima datte,
bokura wa chanto mi wo musunde

Sugata ga mieru ka na

Yogoretatte yaburetatte
Hoshikatta monodatta
Ima wa koko ni aru no sa


Japanese lyrics:

いつだって今だって
僕らはちゃんと実を結んで
今だって飛び立って行く

今日も日が昇ると一歩踏み出す
昨日の自分とは違うはずなのにな
どうして気づいてくれないんだろう
募った不満が心の中でうずく

見た事ないものばかりでも
聞いた事ないものばかりでも
この青い目に映るのは

いつだって今だって遠く向こう走る影
僕だってただ待っているわけじゃないから
いつだって今だって僕らはちゃんと実を結んで
今だって飛び立って行く

認められたいと地団駄踏んでたんだ
言葉にできない悔しさがそこにある
強くなりたいと願えば願うほど
空回りしてしまう

強がって強がって 怖いもの知らずだって
また笑って誤魔化して 本音は言えないまま
嫌になって苛立ってうまくできない自分がいて
ダメだって立ち止まってしまう

度胸もうないくせに
負けず嫌いでまた
涙こぼしてこの果てない不安
と葛藤の渦巻きの中
いつの間にか日が暮れてた

雨だって風だって受けながら綴んでいく
僕だってやれるって飛び込んで行け

いつだって今だって
僕らはちゃんと実を結んで
今だって飛びだった
姿が見えるかな

汚れたって破れたって
欲しかったものだった
今はここにあるのさ
