The Characters In Order of Appearance

Artist Comments

Pursuing your dreams and goals, you will be chased by the frustration, pain and anxiety of failure. However, I believe that the light that shines on a person is the heart that allows them to get carried away in the face of these challenges. When I read the original story, I felt that kind of straightforward light in Sora Kurumatani. I wrote this new song "Taiyou Runner" with the image of a strong heart that burns itself like the sun and gives light of hope to the people around it. I hope it will be a light that shines in the hearts of those who are chasing their dreams. (By Shogo Sakamoto)

Lyrics

Kanji

描いた夢 掴むのは

簡単じゃないって分かってるけど

最初から「無理だ」って妥協してる

人の瞳(め) 光は見えない

見上げる空の恒星たちは

いつも命を燃やして光ってる

僕にだって

太陽ランナー 心を完全燃焼

ゴールへ 革命の光 放つよ

ラスト0秒 それまで結果なんて分からないさ

呆れるほど 己を超えて走り続けるよ

STEP1! 勝利をマークして

STEP2! イメージ 湧かせて

STEP3! ただ全力でペネトレイト

描いた夢 掴むのは

簡単じゃないって分かってるけど

最初から「無理だ」って妥協してる

人の瞳(め) 光は見えない

見上げる空の恒星たちは

いつも命を燃やして光ってる

僕にだって

太陽ランナー 心を完全燃焼 不安も後悔も残らないほどに

そうさ 信じてみないと何もはじまらないさ

悲観という その重たい足枷を外すよ

順風満帆な人に対して 羨みは尽きないけど

悔しさや嫉妬こそが 何より努力のはじまりさ

望んだ景色 あと何度見れるの?

命なんて一瞬さ 最期に笑っていたい

挑戦状を突きつける 心臓の奥 住みついた惰性という敵へと

可能か不可能か 最終的に決めるのは自分だよ

灰になるまでしぶとく前進を

放つ光 いつか誰かの心照らし そこに芽を出す

「無理だ」って言うあの人の心にも 

花を咲かせられるように

(ボロボロになってもいつだって夢中だ)

何回だって地面を蹴る

太陽ランナー 心を完全燃焼

ゴールへ 革命の光 放つよ

ラスト0秒 それまで結果なんて分からないさ

呆れるほど 己を超えて走り続けるよ

STEP1! 勝利をマークして

STEP2! イメージ 湧かせて

STEP3! ただ全力でペネトレイト

English

I know that realizing dreams

Is not an easy thing to accomplish, but

Those who say it's impossible from the beginning

Can't see the light with their eyes

Up above in the sky are the fixed stars

That always shine bright with life

I can, too

Sun Runner with a heart burning at maximum

Radiating the light of revolution towards the goal

Nobody can know the outcome until the very last second

I'll keep on running and improving until I don't recognize myself

Step 1! Focus on winning

Step 2! Imagine the future

Step 3! Just penetrate through at full power

I know that realizing dreams

Is not an easy thing to accomplish, but

Those who say it's impossible from the beginning

Can't see the light with their eyes

Up above in the sky are the fixed stars

That always shine bright with life

I can, too

Sun Runner, burn your heart completely so that there will be no more worries or regrets

Yes, nothing starts if you don't start believing

Remove the pessimism that weighs you down

Feelings of envy keep coming up towards people with an easy life

But frustration and jealousy is the beginning to push yourself harder

How many times can I see the scenery I hoped for

Life is short, I want to laugh in the end

Coasting through life is the enemy that lives in my heart, I'll challenge it to change

Possible or impossible, it's what you decide in the end

Keep going forward all the way to till you burn to ashes

Release a light, someday it'll shine in someone's heart and it will sprout

So that a flower can bloom in the heart of someone who's saying

"it's impossible"

(I always give my all even if I am scarred up)

I'll kick the ground again and again

Sun Runner with a heart burning at maximum

Radiating the light of revolution towards the goal

Nobody can know the outcome until the very last second

I'll keep on running and improving until I don't recognize myself

Step 1! Focus on winning

Step 2! Imagine the future

Step 3! Just penetrate through at full power
