どこにでもある唄。 revised~! (official lyrics)  
So, as I said when I posted the lyrics before that I'd fix them once the official lyrics came out... here I am to do just that XD

The only big mistake was the part that I said I couldn't really tell what he was saying, lol... and after seeing the official lyrics I totally don't blame myself, haha! Dammit Nino, enunciate your words more! Other differences are kanji usage and line spacing/punctuation and such.

But anyway, here we go~!

作詞・作曲: 二宮和也 編曲:ha-j、二宮和也

だから大丈夫。 なんて、言っちゃって

その言葉が自分を消してくから。 それが一番怖い事だから。

目一杯叫べ。 ここにいるよって証のように。
僕らはそんな弱くはない  でも強くもないから
だから泣いていいんだ  恥ずかしいことじゃない
明日がある人しか出来ない事だから  明日への合図だから。

泣いて  求めて  転んで  また泣いて。
君は  そうして  大人になって … 。

傷つくことを恐れて。 ずっと泣くのを我慢してたら笑えなくなってた。

気付いたら独りになって  怖かった。
その時、差し出してくれた。 貴方の声が痛いほど優しくて。
泣いていた。 そうしたら 貴方が「ナキムシ」だって言うから
「貴方もだよ」なんて言ってみたら、楽になってた。 笑ってた。

いつもみたいにふざけた事言い合って。 懐かしいなんて言わないで。
今を、そこにある今を握り締めて … 。 

ほら息を吸ってはいて。 生きている。
一歩一歩  歩いている。 ただそれだけでいい …
大丈夫。 僕らはずっとここにいるよ。
だから全てさらけ出してみて  さぁ、胸を張って言えばいいんだ

ずっと  ずっと  ずっと …

*note: When I did the lyrics by ear I mentioned that I thought he was saying 正解 at the beginning even though it sounds more like "sekai" and it was correct. The lyrics are 正解 which is good, because if it wasn't it totally wouldn't make sense, lol ;^^

**note: This line... 泣いていた。 そうしたら (naiteita soushitara)... is the part that I couldn't make out when writing the lyrics by ear. And the reason is... you can't hear him say "sou", haha... *failure* ;^^ I noticed that some other people had written it as "shitara" (when they were writing the lyrics out by ear as well) and if you listen it sounds like that, but it's grammatically incorrect, so I figured that's not what he was saying, and in my by-ear lyrics I wrote it as "chikara" because it was the only thing I could think of that it might be (to make the sentence grammatically correct and sound somewhat like what he was saying). Listening to the song now after reading the official lyrics... you can maybe barely hear the "sou", lol... it's more like he drops the vowel sounds all together though, so it's hard to catch... which is why I said I don't blame myself, haha ;^^

Anyway, other than that part all the rest of the lyrics I posted before were correct, but there's quite a few differences in uses of kanji, punctuation, etc.
Actually his punctuation intrigues me, but I'm too lazy to analyze it, haha ;^^ It doesn't really change the meaning, but I did change the punctuation in my translation as well.

And then here is the revised translation...

"A song you can find just about anywhere."
Words and Music by Ninomiya Kazunari, Arrangement by ha-j and Ninomiya Kazunari

What is right? And what is wrong?
It’ll be alright. So we say

But those words seem to make you lose part of yourself,
And that’s the scariest thing of all.

So scream it out with all your might.
As though it were proof that you are here.
We’re not that weak, but we’re also not that strong
So, it’s alright to cry
It’s not embarrassing at all
Because only those who have a tomorrow are able to do it
It’s a signal towards the future

Cry, seek, fall, and then cry again.
That’s how you’ll become an adult...

I was afraid of being hurt.
But if I forced myself not to cry, it made me lose the ability to smile.

When I realized it, I was all alone, I was scared.
At that time, you reached out to me. Your voice was painfully kind.
I cried. And you called me a "crybaby",
So I said you were one too, and it felt better. We laughed.

Just like always, we joke with each other.
But don’t say it’s nostalgic.
It’s right now, hold tight to what we have right now...

You see, we breathe in and out. That’s how we live.
One step at a time, we keep walking. And that’s enough...
It’s alright. We will always be here.
So go ahead and let it all out
Now, hold your head up high and say it
"That’s who we are"

Always, always, always...

I actually like Nino's solo this time around. It kind of hit me after the test. I just ended up listening to it because of the lyrics. The test made me so depressed... and still depressed about it. God, now I just want to know the damn results so I can get it over with and move on. But, I have to wait until freakin 9月 until the results are out... gah, I'm going to be depressed for three months >.<;

I ended up hating Sho's solo this time around... last time was Nino's solo, and this time it's Sho's. I always end up hating someone's solo for some odd reason >.>;
~Akane~kimi_no_tsuki on July 5th, 2011 04:37 pm (UTC)
I always love Nino's solos so it's obvious really, but I love this song XDDD

I'm on the fence about Sho's solo this time... from the title it sounded like it was gonna be another "sexy" song, but then it turned out to be a cheesy ballad... lol, but I think once I get over that gap I will like it, because I like cheesy things XD
shiaohwamaoshiaohwamao on July 5th, 2011 04:59 pm (UTC)
I actually find Nino's song to be really good this time. Probably the best out of all the solos. I think the reason why I didn't like his solo last time was because of the cheesy melody. I think he should just stick to ballads because they seem to fit his voice much better because he has a high voice. Actually, his last song was a little too happy go lucky for me.

Sho's song... it really doesn't fit his voice which is probably why I hate it a lot. Whenever it moves into the chorus, and he tries to hit the F and G at the top, it sounds so strained. It doesn't help either that when he holds notes, it sounds so dead. I think he holds them for a beat to long. If he had shorten them, perhaps it wouldn't sound so bad. I think it's because he can't do vibrato which makes his voice really dead. Actually, listening more closely, anything above a B flat starts to sound really strained, so trying to hit the G for him is basically almost a no go. Musically, it sounds so wrong. Wonder why he chose this song...

Here I go again psychobabbling about music... >.>; *crawls into a hole*
~Akane~kimi_no_tsuki on July 5th, 2011 05:21 pm (UTC)
I loved his song last time, but as I said, I always love his songs. But I loved the melody and his singing in it, and of course the lyrics. That song could make anyone happy, lol. This time his song is epic and the theme is so... 偉大 (or 広い as he kept calling it, haha ;^^) Anyway, it's awesome, and I love his voice in it again.

For Sho's song, yeah, you can tell his voice sounds strained at points but the song grows on you the more you listen to it. But actually the higher notes I think sound fine, it's somewhere in the middle that he sounds strained. The higher he goes his voice just kinda breaks out of it. But it sounds kinda like he's singing at karaoke, haha, so it's not bad in my mind, lol ;^^
~Akane~kimi_no_tsuki on July 5th, 2011 05:22 pm (UTC)
And by the end of the song he also seems to be getting into the pitch better, lol ;^^
shiaohwamaoshiaohwamao on July 5th, 2011 05:52 pm (UTC)
Oh... that's another thing, he drops pitch on his long notes... or he starts off flat and then gets onto pitch.
~Akane~kimi_no_tsuki on July 6th, 2011 06:06 am (UTC)
I meant that by the end of the song he got better, not the end of the notes. But anyway, I still think it sounds like someone singing at karaoke, so it makes it more 愛しい, lol. That's why it grows on you.
shiaohwamaoshiaohwamao on July 5th, 2011 06:17 pm (UTC)
Okay, I really will stop before I scare you off with my hatred towards this song. Actually, I think I'd get punched by a lot of Sho fans at this point... >.>;
shiaohwamaoshiaohwamao on July 5th, 2011 05:47 pm (UTC)
Sho's singing somehow reminds me of YamaP's singing, except it's a slightly better version... I think the reason why his singing sounds strained at some points is because he has a tone of notes, the phrases are long, and by the end of the phrase, he has no momentum. What's worse if that at the end of the phrase, he has to hit the high notes, which is probably why his middle sounds really strained. It just means that he doesn't breathe correctly when he sings, and that creates a lot of problems when you have long phrases and not a lot of break points between the phrases. I think his longest phrase is about 16 beats with no break, and with such a fast moving line, you run out of breath faster. And he goes fishing for notes (sliding into notes) which also bothers me.

Ok... I'll stop there because I think I can go on and on about how I hate this solo...

Totally love Nino's solo, and I'm SUPER EXCITED about hearing it live in less than a month! *_* KIYAAA! :D It's truly a beautiful song, and I may try to memorize by the end of the month. :D
~Akane~kimi_no_tsuki on July 6th, 2011 06:10 am (UTC)
Me too!!! I will pass out and die when he sings it XD Can we just skip forward in time to the end of July? That way I don't have to do my presentations and reports for school either, haha ;^^

I liked Nino's solo the second time I listened to it <3 It's different from the 'Niji' I expected, but I really love it :DD
~Akane~kimi_no_tsuki on July 6th, 2011 06:12 am (UTC)
Yeah, it's totally different from Niji, I like the fact that his songs are always new and different. The other members solos always seem to be the same type/genre to fit their image (not that I don't like the other member solos of course, I love them~!) But I like that Nino always does different things :D
showjuro: take it off.showjuro on July 6th, 2011 12:02 pm (UTC)
Yep, the other members stick to the same basic style :) For me, Nino is always the ballad style or the cute style, but he pulls both off very well <3
~Akane~kimi_no_tsuki on July 6th, 2011 12:06 pm (UTC)
Nino also has Gimmick Game though, lol, so he has more styles than just that.

Also... did you get my PM...?
showjuro: I ♥ Ushowjuro on July 6th, 2011 12:07 pm (UTC)
