Runners high
Lyrics: HARUNA ~ Music: Yuichi Tajika ~ Arrangement: Yu Odakura

Tameiki bakari tsuite sugite yuku mainichi ni
"Kotae" no nai toikake wo kurikaeshite
Tachidomatte utsumuku hi mo aru kedo
Mabuta wo tojite hikaru shigunaru wa itsumo

"Mae ni susume kimi wa"
Sonna mon ka yo
"Nigecha dame da"
Hashiritsuzukeyou

Genkai datte kimetsuke chattara
Owari wo tsugeru buzaa ga narunda
Boku wo warau ka no you ni
Kono saka wo nobotte mieru keshiki ga
Gooru teepu de sutaato rain sa
Mirai ga matteru

Fuan wa yokan mo naku kokoro wo yowaraseteku
Tobeteta hazu no tobibako mo kowaku natte
Itsu no manika konna ni retsu no ushiro
Dareka no tobu sugata nagameteiru yo

"Kimi wa sore de ii no"
Chotto matte yo
"Mada maniau"
Ugokidasu kimochi

Akogare tatte nozonde tatte
Tadoritsukenai koto mo arunda
Sou daremo ga shitteru
Demo dakara to itte mogaite inakya
Kitto nanimo kawarya shinainda
Jibun wo shinjite

Dareka no sei ni shinai you ni
Koukai shitari shinai you ni
Saigo ni waraeru you ni yukou

Genkai datte kimetsuke chattara
Owari wo tsugeru buzaa ga narunda
Boku wo warau ka no you ni
Kono saka wo nobotte mieru keshiki ga
Gooru teepu de sutaato rain sa
Jibun wo shinjite
Mirai ga matteru

Kana:
ため息ばかりついて 過ぎていく 毎日に
「答え」のない問いかけを繰り返して
立ち止まって うつむく日もあるけど
瞼を閉じて光るシグナルはいつも

「マエニ ススメ キミハ」
そんなもんかよ
「ニゲチャ ダメダ」
走り続けよう

限界だって 決めつけちゃったら
終わりを告げるブザーがなるんだ
僕を笑うかのように
この坂をのぼって見える景色が
ゴールテープでスタートラインさ
未来が待ってる

不安は予感もなく心を弱らせてく
飛べてたはずの跳び箱も怖くなって
いつのまにか こんなに 列の後ろ
誰かの飛ぶ姿眺めているよ

「キミハ ソレデ イイノ」
ちょっと待ってよ
「マダ マニアウ」
動き出す気持ち

不安は予感もなく心を弱らせていく
飛べてたはずの跳び箱も怖くなって
いつのまにか こんなに 列の後ろ
誰かの飛ぶ姿眺めているよ

「キミハ ソレデ イイノ」
ちょっと待ってよ
「マダ マニアウ」
動き出す気持ち

憧れたって 望んでたって
辿り着けないこともあるんだ
そう 誰もが知ってる
でも だからと言ってもがいていなきゃ
きっと何も変わりゃしないんだ
自分を信じて

誰かのせいにしないように
後悔したりしないように
最後に笑えるように 行こう

限界だって 決めつけちゃったら
終わりを告げるブザーがなるんだ
僕を笑うかのように
この坂をのぼって見える景色が
ゴールテープでスタートラインさ
自分を信じて
未来が待ってる

--------------------------

English Translation

I sigh over and over again
Each day goes by as questions with no answers keep repeating
Although there are days when I hang my head and come to a standstill
I close my eyes and a signal lights up, always telling me to

"Keep moving forward"
Is that all?
"You musn't run away"
I'll keep running

When it's decided I'm at my limit
A buzzer signaling the end sounds out
As if it's laughing at me
I climb this hill and see
The goal tape at the starting line
The future is waiting

Anxiety suddenly strikes and weakens my heart
I get scared of the vaulting box I should have been able to jump over
Before I know it, I'm in the back of the line
And watching as someone bounds past me

"Is that all right with you?"
Just a minute
"You can still make it"
My emotions begin to move

There are things you long for, hope for
That you may not reach
Yes, everyone knows that
But that's why if you don't struggle
Nothing will change
Believe in yourself

So you won't blame someone else
So you won't have regrets
So that you'll be able to smile in the end, let's go

When it's decided I'm at my limit
A buzzer signaling the end sounds out
As if it's laughing at me
I climb this hill and see
The goal tape at the starting line
I believe in myself
The future is waiting

Nice lyrics from HARU  Love This was written when they also worked on STANDARD right? I think they mentioned it somewhere but cannot remember where.

Great song and lyrics, a really good single  UHUH!

It was actually while they were preparing for Wonderful Tonight.

Copy & pasting this from the thread I originally posted this in since it's relevant to this topic:

◆It's okay if I've lost my way, because I want to move forward
――For 『Runners high』, in what kind of feeling did you perform the lyrics and express yourselves?

HARUNA: We wrote the lyrics around January-February of this year (she means 2013, as this interview was conducted then), the period when we were preparing for our live at Osaka-Jo Hall, our goal since our formation, in March. As we were heading towards our OJH live we had feelings of 「Our dream is coming true!」 on one side, and on the other we were attacked by an baseless anxiousness of  「What should we do after our dream comes true………」……. During such, we drew up these lyrics because we wanted to inspire ourselves somehow. All kinds of people have all kinds of dreams; among that, we think that in this world there are more things that you're anxious about, so we want you to listen to it if you're at a loss over something.

――Are there any parts in the lyrics that one should pay attention to?

HARUNA: There's one in the second half of the chorus: 「Kono saka wo nobotte mieru keshiki ga gooru teepu de sutaato rain sa (I climb this hill and see the goal tape at the starting line)」. If you don't try standing at the goal, you won't see the view. You're doing many things while aiming for the top (goal), and if you stand there you'll be able to see the new view. If you don't stand there, you won't be able to see it. You must not stop; what's important is to keep running.

Now I can say that I love ALL of this song! Good job Haru!

This is my fav part of lyrics: ^-^

"There are things you long for, hope for
That you may not reach
Yes, everyone knows that
But that's why if you don't struggle
Nothing will change
Believe in yourself
So you won't blame someone else

So I'm thinking after reading it: "A limit is just another starting line". A goal just as well is another starting line to a bigger goal. I'm excited to see what SCANDAL can and will achieve in the near future. And Ono-san is indeed a leader, I can see her iron will and spirit in the lyrics.


_________________________________________________________________________________________________
In the morning, let the sun give you enough warmth which my love fails to do. And at noon, let the wind carry my felicitations and bring it to you. With louder sounds, bury it more, until only our hearts can hear that song which plays only between the two of us. If possible, make the night darker until our emotions are radiant enough to be seen. 

This clock which ticks differently on the two of us, hasten its pace so that our paths may converge in the future. This clock which fills me with sorrow as it reminds of how impossible it is for me to even see you, hasten its pace so that my sorrows would be drowned. Let me sleep therefore, so that I could prepare for tomorrow, as I did today, in making these thoughts and aspirations materialize. So let me sleep then, so that your presence would give me hints in accomplishing these goals.

When I listened and watched the live PV of this song, the one wherein they're wearing all white, I immediately liked it. I especially like the back-up voice of Mami in this, with that li'l bit of effects. But that moment when you get to know the meaning of the song, wow,  just wow. 

I'll definitely rip this part once this hell month is over:

"Mae ni susume kimi wa"  ("Keep moving forward")
. . . 
"Nigecha dame da" ("You musn't run away")
