Transcriber’s Note:
In all international editions of the 2013 film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, both the insert and ending songs were replaced by English versions performed by the same band. It is not an exact translation of the original Japanese lyrics due to the constraints of making the lyrics fit the meter. A direct translation of the Japanese song can be found here. In addition, unlike FLOW’s English version of “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA”, no official release of the song itself has been made available, so it is not known whether there exists a version longer than the cut used in the movie proper.
Lyrics in English
Reality could put you through a test sometimes,
A trial very much like a power from above
All day, all night, you know sometimes it makes you sick to the bone
But you’ll never let go or give up the fight,
You’re the one who showed me how to see the light
Oh yeah, all right, the sun is ready to shine on
Be brave and gimme, gimme power,
Power up, power up, power, you gotta let it awake
And no matter what, you get right up where you were stopped dead in the ground
That’s why you’re running, running, running,
Running for the future, trying to live up to your dream
I see you dashing through the wind just like a hero
Get over the sorrow, heartbeat is rising, pouring out emotions,
Ringing in the distance, sky I’m looking up to, wishes always come true
And it goes on and on
Get over the sorrow, heartbeat is rising, pouring out emotions,
Ringing in the distance, sky I’m looking up to, wishes always come true
From me to you, this is the song of hope
