B-PROJECT’S THRIVE

Thank you to Niko3 for the commission! I believe this is my first song commission, so I’m going to do my due diligence and set up a better precedent for future songs (unlike the ones I do for myself, oops).

Lyrics: KOUDAI IWATSUBO
Composed by: KOUDAI IWATSUBO & Koukei “CO-K” Takafumi
Arranged by: Koukei “CO-K” Takafumi

Translated lyrics below, along with a sample of the song from B-PROJECT’s official site.

Here we go!

Wrap Wrap

涙で波立てる
Swelling waves made with tears
心ざわつく A wonderful day
My heart ripples A wonderful day
Have a good day
Have a good day
って簡単なフレーズ
Such a simple phrase,
何故か言えないTimingさ
one I can’t say with any timing

もう黒い薔薇もドラゴンだって
Black roses and dragons
きっと実在する
already surely exist
Perfectな君の存在の方が在りえない
[But] the existence of a perfect you is impossible

求める それゆえ焦れる
I’m searching for you I’m impatient because of that
霧の中をただ彷徨う
I just wander around inside a fog
振り向いて微笑みを
Looking back, that smile
それは甘いTrap Trap
is a sweet Trap Trap

何だってそう
Everything is like that
Wrapped in love
Wrapped in love
包んで
Enveloped
何?どうなってんの?
What? What’s going on?
What’s wrong?
What’s wrong?
え?鍵持ってんの?
Eh? You have a key?
待って 待って
Wait wait
何時だってもう関係ない
It doesn’t matter when anymore
その胸に 幻の花を Uh
If the illusionary flower in that heart Uh
咲かせたら ほどける
is blooming then let it come undone
Nothing but
Nothing but
とびきりの愛
a love that’s out of this world

確かめ合うため
In order to make sure of each other
視線を交わす Like the snake
our gazes entwine Like the snake
There is no smoke
There is no smoke
って有名なSaying
This famous saying
今更わかる気がして
I feel like I understand it now

ねぇ白い闇も第六感も
Hey, [this] blindness and sixth sense
きっと証明する
will surely prove
Specialな君の人生の方が成し得ない
that the life of a special you isn’t capable of happening

絡まる それでも攻める
I’m wrapped up But even still I attack
引き返せはしないOne way
[This is] a one way I won’t turn back on
手に入れて閉じ込めよう
I’ll get you and try to trap you
これは君のCrime Crime
This is your Crime Crime

簡単なこと
It’s a simple thing
Wrapped in love
Wrapped in love
愛がなきゃ
I gotta love
やってらんないよ
I can’t go on like this
How’s it going?
How’s it going?
僕なんてどう?
How about me?
聞いて 聞いて
Listen Listen
どこだってもう問題ない
It doesn’t matter where anymore
君だけを 追い続けた先 Uh
The end of continuing to chase after you alone Uh
僕だけが 堕ちるの?
Is it just me falling and going under?
Nothing but
Nothing but
やりきれぬHeaven
a heaven that’s too much

Oh, tell me how you feel
Oh, tell me how you feel
運命を 選べないほど
To the point of not being able to choose a fate
もがく僕を
[That’s how much] I’m struggling
見ててくれよ
Look at me
愛と踊るよ
[I’m] dancing with love

だってだってNeed you
Because, after all, [I] need you

Wrapped in love
Wrapped in love
包んで
Enveloped
何?どうなってんの?
What? What’s going on?
What’s wrong?
What’s wrong?
え?鍵持ってんの?
Eh? You have a key?
待って 待って
Wait wait
何時だってもう関係ない
It doesn’t matter when anymore
その胸に 幻の花を Uh
If the illusionary flower in that heart Uh
咲かせたら ほどける
is blooming then let it come undone
Nothing but
Nothing but
とびきりの愛
a love that’s out of this world


Note1: The word 白い闇 (shiroi yami) literally means “white darkness”, but it looks like a poetic way of saying either “blindness” or “haze of darkness”. I decided to go with the former, but here’s some interesting trivia and I’m sad to lose the contrast but I think “white darkness” would have sounded odd in English LOL.

    Whoa~ THRIVE~! (≡^∇^≡)
    I never thought I would see them here~
    Oh~ I miss B Pro so much since the app has closed down last April o(╥﹏╥)

    No matter which unit your favorite is, you like THRIVE as much as your favorite unit! And no matter which one your favorite member is, you like Gochin too~ (>︿<。)
    Oh~ his voice~! I like his voice the most!! Thank you, Toshiyuki Toyonaga san~ ヾ(^-^)ノ

    The first time I listened to Tick Tack, it was instant love! Love Addiction is my favorite too~ I like all of their songs besides No. 6 😂
    But I haven't listened to recent one

    Thank you for sharing~♪ヽ(*´∀`)ノ

      What can I say, my blog is turning into a hub of various different otome things LOL. The mobage market in Japan sounds pretty cutthroat and only the fittest survive there :’)) but at least they’re still producing songs, even if they don’t have an app out for B-PROJECT…?

      You’re welcome and a big thank you to Niko3 for trusting me with this commission, haha.

      You’re welcome! I don’t follow B-PROJECT at all, but I’ve heard some THRIVE songs because of how catchy they are like Love Addiction and Tick-Tack. Happy to see that this translation will come in use for other people :D!

        I have been following it since the anime came out. THRIVE is definitely my favorite group, and “Love Addiction” is my favorite song! They have really great music. THRIVE even had their own live concert where they sang said song live for the first time.

        If you would like to know more about the songs, let me know. I’ll share some of my favorites.
