今 この両手広げて 空に向かって走り出そう!!
さあ 輝こう 光のように

人ごみに 流され明日に何を求めるの?
造られたレール 歩んでいくだけ?

現実に ばつかるコトに傷つくの恐れないで
逃げ出したい時でも あきらめないで!!

まだ見ぬ明日に  期待したっていいんじゃない?
自分に負けない為に そして信じる為に...

大きく 両手広げて 空に向かってはばたこう!!
自分の強さ いつか誇れるように

今 この両手広げて 明日にこの夢託せるなら
さあ 猫こう いつかの自分



ima kono ryoute hirogete sora ni mukatte hashiridasou!!
saa kagayakou hikari no you ni

hitogomi ni nagasare ashita ni nani wo motomeru no?
tsukura reta RAIL ayunde iku dake?

genjitsu ni batsukaru koto ni kizutsuku no osorenaide
nigedashitai toki demo akiramenaide!!

mada minu asu ni kitai shitatte iin janai?
jibun ni makenai tame ni soshite shinjiru tame ni...

ookiku ryoute hirogete sora ni mukatte habatakou!!
jibun no tsuyosa itsuka hokoreru you ni

ima kono ryoute hirogete asu ni kono yume takuserunara
saa neko kou itsuka no jibun

kimi nara dekiru
kitto kagayakeru
boku ni wa mieru
kimi no hikari ga zutto.....

Long Version



現実にぶつかることに傷つくの恐れないで 逃げ出したいときでも諦めないで!

自分に負けないために そして信じるために…



知らぬ間に心の奥に閉じ込めているよ 『君』という価値のある存在を
現実は僕らを試している だからこそ踏み出して! 生きてる 証(いみ)あることを忘れないで

自分に自信を持って! そして見つめてみて!

ずっと眠ってた 魂(こえ)呼び覚まして!
今この両手広げて 未来(あす)にこの魂託すのなら
そう!今しかないこの 時代(とき)を…

僕らの今を 僕らの夢を
僕らの全て 愛すること信じて
君ならできる きっと輝ける
僕には 映(み)える 君の光がずっと…

Song Production Information

BeForU Official Website


I created a rough track of BeForU's new song "Firefly" in L.A for MAX, and there was a public contest for titles and an open recording with fans, so I think I was able to find a new way to create something different. For "Firefly", each of the four BeForU members wrote the lyrics and chorus part, and we discussed them over and over again. Actually, I thought of something when I saw the lyrics of this song.
I think everyone who plays DDR and listens to my music is also busy everyday with things like school and work, right? When people encounter various obstacles in such daily life, I think they overcome them one at a time and mature. "Firefly" is a great song to support everyone who lives by fighting such obstacles everyday. (laughs) It's what I call a cheering song, I think? In terms of sound, you may not be able to hear the finer sounds at an arcade, but I think this song's scale is conveyed when listening to it on a CD.

DDRMAX -DanceDanceRevolution 6thMIX- Official Website

The highly promising unit BeForU was selected from the Artist Audition. The title of their latest song recording is "Firefly"! The title of this upper dance tune was created together with users, by requesting song titles on the official homepage, and inviting the title winner to its recording, so there's no doubt that there are very high expectations for it!

DDRMAX -DanceDanceRevolution 6thMIX- Original Soundtrack


This is an energetic and active dance number. The previous song "DIVE" ("Be For U"'s debut song) captures a dark tone, while "Firefly" contains a light image. Positive feelings are essential for humans to live... the lyrics contain a highly emotional message and breathe life into this song, further providing it with a live feeling.

Liner Notes

This is positive and catchy pops, completely written in Japanese. The title "Firefly" conveys the message "let's shine and fly towards tomorrow". The pure female vocals, and the up-tempo but somewhat sorrowful melody, lets listeners feel positivity. By all means, I'd like for female D.D.R. players to consciously dance to this dance unit's number with hot taste.
