Dogasu's Backpack | Lyrics Archive | Pocket Monsters Best Wishes Songs
"Smile" (笑顔), not to be confused with the similarly titled song from the Advanced Generation series, is the ending theme to the movie The Extreme Speed Genosect and the Awakening of Myuutwo.
The music video for the song features portraits of various people as their information is displayed on the bottom of the screen. Ikimono Gakari members, the music video's director Miki Takahiro, Pocket Monsters director Masuda Jun'ichi, and actors Andou Tamae and Nomaguichi To'oru all make cameo appearances.
TranslationThe goal of the following translation is to present the meaning of the song in a competent, coherent way. It is not meant to be an English version of the song that can be sung along with the melody.
So, I want to smile and I want to live with you
You're irreplaceable and I want to continue looking over you
You being over there isn't just some tiny miracle
It's warmer than anything, so I want to become strong
The blooming flower that is me takes a tiny step forward
How many times do we say goodbye to these days that change into memories?
Your voice brings sunshine no matter where you go
And at some point this favorite light of mine gives me a push on my back
You always said "I want to become a nice person"
Tell me the sad things that are smoldering inside your heart
When you smile like that I feel like I can do anything
You want to become a little stronger, I wonder, but for some reason your courage is bubbling over
Your happiness repeats many times the same way flowers wilt and bloom
So let's live our lives like that...that's why I want to become stronger
We've never been able to say "sorry," and we've always butt heads
Just cuddling up to whatever's closest to you is no good
I want to be a fun person and take on things without fear
The times when I feel single-minded keep piling up so I want to find something concrete
If maybe you're all alone with all the sadness you keep inside
That makes me want to frantically reach my hand out to you like some kind of madman
Understanding each other is difficult but I can at least share with you
I'm always by your side because I'm always here
I'm always in the middle, and that which you hold dear is right here
Your hands are kind so I will grip them strongly
Whether something a little bit sad happens or something a little bit happy happens
It's better to just smile through it all and to hug each other
Even if it all changes anyway, let's make this flower bloom no matter how many times it takes
So we can walk together and can become happy
The days when you cry while smiling and the days you smile while crying
Let's live like that...that's why I want to become strong.
