頭の中で声が聞こえてる
「助けて、助けて」 こだまするみたいに
昔々のお伽話でしょ
そんなのないよと思ってたけれど

atama no naka de koe ga kikoeteru
“tasukete, tasukete” kodama suru mitai ni
mukashimukashi no otogibanashi desho
sonna no nai yo to omotteta keredo

I can hear a voice inside my head:
“Help me, help me!” It’s as if it’s echoing.
That’s an old fairy-tale, right?
I thought such a thing didn’t exist, but…

『好奇心』それがモットーの私
飛び出して導かれ走ったんだ

‘koukishin’ sore ga mottoo no watashi
tobidashite michibikare hashittan da

I, whose motto is ‘curiosity,’
Jumped out, and was led along, running…


世の中は不思議だらけ
だから楽しめるんだ
煙に巻かれても それはそれで
楽しいはやって来ない
だから突き止めるんだ
愉快解決のミッションです

yo no naka wa fushigi darake
dakara tanoshimerun da
kemu ni makaretemo sore wa sore de
tanoshii wa yattekonai
dakara tsukitomerun da
yukai kaiketsu no misshon desu

The world is full of mysterious things.
That’s why I can enjoy myself,
Even if I’m confused by other people…
My fun won’t come along,
So I’ll find the culprit!
A happy resolution’s…. my mission!

細かいことはとりあえず置いて
その先あるはず大きなワクワク

komakai koto wa toriaezu oite
sono saki aru hazu ooki na wakuwaku

For now, I’ll leave behind all the small things!
Great thrills are sure to lie beyond here…

『荒削り』それがモットーの私
鷲掴み 事件が待ってんだ

‘arakezuri’ sore ga mottoo no watashi
washidzukami tanoshii koto ga matten da

I, whose motto is being ‘unrefined,’
Grabbed hold – fun things surely await me! (1)

現実は理不尽だらけ
だから抱きしめるんだ
たまに転んでも それはそれで
龍助け爪もらってまさに『わらしべ長者』
予想着かないよ 人生は

genjitsu wa rifujin darake
dakara dakishimerun da
tama ni korondemo sore wa sore de
ryuu tasuke tsume moratte masa ni ‘warashibe chouja’
yosou tsukanai yo jinsei wa

Reality is full of irrational things.
That’s why I hug them close,
Even if I fall over sometimes…
I saved a dragon and received a claw – surely I’m a ‘Straw Millionaire!’ (2)
Life doesn’t go according to plan, you know!

頭の中で声が聞こえたら
迷わずワクワクする方へ走って

atama no naka de koe ga kikoetara
mayowazu wakuwaku suru hou he hashitte

If I can hear a voice inside my head,
I’ll run off, without hesitating, in the direction that thrills me!

(1) The lyrics read 事件 (‘jiken’ – incident), but 楽しいこと (‘tanoshii koto’ – fun things) is sung.
(2) This is a reference to an old Japanese tale, in which a poor man works his way up by trading things to other people, starting with a piece of straw.
