Performed by: 川嶋 あい (Kawashima Ai)
Theme Song of: ワンピース
– エピソードオブアラバスタ 砂漠の王女と海賊たち
(One Piece – Episode of Alabasta: Sabaku no Oujo to Kaizoku-tachi)

守りたいものがある この場所で強くなるから
mamoritai mono ga aru kono basho de tsuyoku naru kara
にぎりしめた こぶしをまた にぎりしめた
nigiri shimeta kobushi o mata nigiri shimeta

本当に大事なことは 言葉では伝わらない
hontou ni daiji na koto wa kotoba de wa tsutawaranai
ゆっくりと ゆっくりと今
yukkuri to yukkuri to ima
その背中を見つめていたんだ
sono senaka o mitsumete itanda
どう生きるかは自分で 決めることだとわかった
dou ikiru ka wa jibun de kimeru koto da to wakatta
本当の勇気はきっと 優しさだったんだね
hontou no yuuki wa kitto yasashisa dattanda ne
泣かないことを 決めたはずなのに
nakanai koto o kimeta hazu nano ni
涙あふれて止まらなかったよ
namida afurete tomaranakatta yo
淋しいんじゃない 悲しいんじゃない
sabushiin ja nai kanashiin ja nai
勇気をくれたからなんだ
yuuki o kureta kara nanda
旅立ちを決めた朝 止めることできなかったよ
tabidachi o kimeta asa tomeru koto dekinakatta yo
道のつづき違うけれど 信じてるよ
michi no tsuzuki chigau keredo shinjiteru yo

勝つことや 負けることは 何の意味もないんだよ
katsu koto ya makeru koto wa nan no imi mo nainda yo
大切な人守るとき 戦えばいいんだ
taisetsu na hito mamoru toki tatakaeba iinda
人と人との摩擦を感じて 押しころしてた深い傷跡を
hito to hito to no masatsu o kanjite oshikoro shiteta fukai kizuato o
夢に変えて 愛に変えて 全部抱きしめて生きたい
yume ni kaete ai ni kaete zenbu dakishimete ikitai
大切なものがある あの時に誓った約束
taisetsu na mono ga aru ano toki ni chikatta yakusoku
離れても どんなときも 忘れないよ
hanarete mo donna toki mo wasurenai yo

誰もが孤独の数だけ 心痛めつけ合うだろう
dare mo ga kodoku no kazu dake kokoro itametsuke au darou
何度も何度も叫んでいるよ
nando mo nando mo sakende iru yo
命を包む愛と絆を 忘れないで
inochi o tsutsumu ai to kizuna o wasurenai de

ありがとう ありがとう 一人じゃないんだ
arigatou arigatou hitori ja nainda
守りたいものだから この場所で守り通して
mamoritai mono dakara kono basho de mamori tooshite
前を向いて 頑張らなきゃ たどり着けない
mae o muite ganbaranakya tadori tsukenai
負けないで 負けないで
makenai de makenai de
いつの日か また会えるときまで
itsu no hi ka mata aeru toki made
あきらめない 何があっても 歩いていこう
akiramenai nani ga atte mo aruite ikou

Lalalalala~ La~la~ La~la~la~
Lalala~lalala~ Lalalalalala~

compass

There is something I wish to protect, and to become strong over at that place
Clenching tightly, I clenched my fist tightly

What’s truly important, I was unable to convey it in words
But now, slowly and gradually
I was able to look at that back (of yours)
I understand that I choose my way of life myself
And that true courage is in fact kindness, right?
Though decided that that I shall not cry
But there’s just no stopping these flowing tears
It is not due to loneliness, nor is it sorrow
But because you have given me courage
The morning of the decided start of your journey cannot be avoided
And though the paths we continue on are different, I continue to believe

Whether is it victory, or loss, there is no meaning to it
As long as it’s to protect those important to you, it’s fine to fight
Feel the friction between people, bear the deep scars from pushing*
Turning them into dreams, turning them into love, I wish to embrace all of those while living
There is something I wish to protect, and I made a promise at that time
Be it times of parting, or any time at all, I will never forget

For anyone, no matter how many times of loneliness they have gone through, the pain in the heart will eventually heal, doesn’t it?
For countless times I’ve been crying out loud
Never forget the love and bonds that envelop life

Thank you, I thank you, for I am not alone
Because of something I wish to protect, I will continue to defend that very place
Facing forth, I have to give it all, or I will not reach my goal*
Do not lose, do not be defeated
Until the day we meet again someday
Do not give up, for no matter what may happen, I will continue to walk on

Lalalalala~ La~la~ La~la~la~
Lalala~lalala~ Lalalalalala~

*: These are lines that I’m not really sure of…this time I adopted a more ‘rhetorical’ style of translation, with the Alabasta and Vivi’s story in mind…so~ do help me out if I made any silly mistakes, ya?😀
