    Against The Wind

    It seems like yesterday
    But it was long ago
    Janey was lovely
    she was the queen of my nights
    There in the darkness
    with the radio playing low

    まだ昨日のように思い出せるけど
    それはだいぶ前のことなんだ
    ジェニーはきれいで俺の女王だった
    暗い中でラジオから音楽が
    小さな音で流れてた

    And the secrets that we shared
    The mountains that we moved
    Caught like a wildfire out of control
    ‘Til there was nothing left to burn
    and nothing left to prove

    俺たちは秘密をわかちあい
    山を動かすくらい愛し合い
    すべて燃え尽くすほど
    何も後から証明できないほど
    手に負えない山火事のように包まれた
    それくらい愛し合ったんだ

    And I remember what she said to me
    How she swore that it never would end
    I remember how she held me oh so tight
    Wish I didn’t know now
    what I didn’t know then

    彼女が言ったことを覚えてる
    彼女はこんな風に言った
    私たちの愛は終わらないって
    彼女がどれほど俺を
    ぎゅっと抱きしめたか覚えてる
    そのとき知らなかったことを
    今も知らずにいたかったと思うよ

    Against the wind
    We were runnin’ against the wind
    We were young and strong, we were runnin’
    Against the wind

    風に逆らって
    俺たちは風に逆らって走った
    若くて 強くて
    俺たちは風に逆らって
    走り続けたんだ

    The years rolled slowly past
    And I found myself alone
    Surrounded by strangers
    I thought were my friends
    I found myself further
    and further from my home

    年月はゆっくりと流れ行く
    気が付けば俺は独りぼっちだ
    かつては友と思っていた
    見知らぬ奴らに囲まれて
    気が付けば故郷を離れ
    だいぶ遠くに来てしまったよ

    And I guess I lost my way
    There were oh so many roads
    I was living to run
    and running to live
    Never worryied about paying
    or even how much I owed

    道を見失ってしまったようだ
    沢山の道があったんだけど
    走るために生き
    生きるために走ってきて
    金のことなんて心配したこともなく
    持ち物すら気にしてなかった

    Moving eight miles a minute
    for months at a time
    Breaking all of the rules
    that would bend
    I began to find myself searching
    Searching for shelter again and again

    何カ月もの間 1分間に8マイル
    なんて無茶なスピードで
    破れるルールはみな破った
    俺は自分自身を探し始めたんだ
    俺の心の避難所をね
    何度も何度も

    Against the wind
    A little something
    against the wind
    I found myself
    seeking shelter sgainst the wind

    風に逆らいながら
    小さい何かを大切にして
    心の避難所を探そうとしてたんだ
    風に逆らいながら

    Well those drifter’s days
    are past me now
    I’ve got so much more to think about
    Deadlines and commitments
    What to leave in, what to leave out

    そんなさすらいの日々は過ぎて行った
    俺は沢山のことを考えるようになった
    越えてはならない死線や約束
    何を残しておき
    何を捨ててしまうか

    Against the wind
    I’m still runnin’ against the wind
    I’m older now
    but still runnin’ against the wind
    Well I’m older now and still runnin’
    Against the wind
    Against the wind
    Against the wind

    風に逆らって
    俺は今だに風に逆らって走ってる
    年をとってしまったが
    風に逆らって走ってるんだ
    もう若くはないが走り続けてる
    風に逆らって
    向かい風を受けて
    風に逆らって

    See the young man run
    Watch the young man run
    Watch the young man runnin’
    He’ll be runnin’ against the wind

    若い奴も走っているぜ
    若い奴の走るのを見てみろ
    奴も風に逆らって走ってる

    Let the cowboys ride
    Let the cowboys ride
    They’ll be ridin’ against the wind
    Against the wind …

    カウボーイのように
    乗りこなすんだ
    奴らも風に逆らって進むんだ
    風に逆らって
    走り続けて行くんだ

    “Beautiful Loser”

    Bob Seger

    He wants to dream like a young man
    With the wisdom of an old man
    He wants his home and security
    He wants to live like a sailor at sea

    Beautiful loser
    Where you gonna fall?
    When you realize, you just can’t have it all

    He’s your oldest and your best friend
    If you need him, he’ll be there again
    He’s always willing to be second-best
    A perfect lodger, a perfect guest

    Beautiful loser
    Read it on the wall
    And realize
    You just can’t have it all

    You just can’t have it all
    You just can’t have it all
    Ohh, ohh, can’t have it all

    You can try, you can try, but you can’t have it all
    oh yeah

    He’ll never make any enemies, enemies, no
    He won’t complain if he’s caught in a freeze
    He’ll always ask, he’ll always say please

    Beautiful loser
    Never take it all
    ‘Cause it’s easier
    And faster when you fall

    You just don’t need it all
    You just don’t need it all
    You just don’t need it all
    Just don’t need it all
