「SPLASH FREE」– STYLE FIVE

“A splash that makes us free!”

– –

Translation:

A splash that makes us free!
Bask in the contrast of the overlapping light
Feel so free today / Dive right into
Our brand-new blue / Yeah
True to myself as I dive! dive! dive! / Ah-oh
My own style in my kick! kick! kick! / Ah-oh
I want to know that feeling, so pull! pull! pull! / Ah-oh
It’s just within reach, the deep! deep! deep!
Splash free

Every day passes in a blur
Back and fill with a butterfly stroke
We rack up wins by trial and error (in the future)
But forget about that for now (so take it easy, ah)

Just feel the water (as your fingers slice the surface)
Let the emotion wash over you (quench your thirst)
Caught in the riddle of this relay (oh-oh)
It’s time to melt that icy heart and set it free!

A splash that makes us free!
Amid the contrast of overlapping light
This moment will last forever
Set your sights on summer / Yeah
True to myself as I dive! dive! dive! / Ah-oh
My own style in my kick! kick! kick! / Ah-oh
See the dazzling horizon ahead and pull! pull! pull! / Ah-oh
Hands outstretched to the deep! deep! deep!
Splash free

Not every day will be smooth sailing (that’s right)
Back and forth, drifting aimlessly
Some people can put up an optimistic front (I know, I know)
How I wish I could do the same (but it’s never too late, ah)

In the tips of my toes (purely on instinct)
The next vibration (courses through me)
I know I hesitated (the me of yesterday)
Let’s leave the shadows behind (for a now-or-never wave)
I can’t protect it on my own (the same way I kick the water)
This pride that isn’t rooted in reality (in a long, unbroken line)
Even the best of intentions (wo-oh-oh)
Can fall through the cracks (c’mon)
Break free of the mold!

Create a style that sets us free!
Touch the blue depths in these uncharted waters
Never before have we felt so free / Yeah
True to myself as I dive! dive! dive! / Ah-oh
My own style in my kick! kick! kick! / Ah-oh
I want to know that feeling, so pull! pull! pull! / Ah-oh
It’s just within reach, the deep! deep! deep!
Splash free

Dive! dive! dive! / Ah-oh
Kick! kick! kick! / Ah-oh
Pull! pull! pull! / Ah-oh
Deep! deep! deep!
Splash free

A splash that makes us free!
Amid the contrast of overlapping light
This moment will last forever
Engrave this summer in your memory / dive into the blue
Create a style that sets us free!
Touch the blue depths in these uncharted waters
Never before have we felt so free / Yeah
True to myself as I dive! dive! dive! / Ah-oh
My own style in my kick! kick! kick! / Ah-oh
I want to know that feeling, so pull! pull! pull! / Ah-oh
It’s just within reach, the deep! deep! deep!
Splash free

Translation Notes:

(1) The “sei! sei! sei!” in the chorus represents the traditional way of cheering at Japanese swim meets and races. Everyone yells, “Se—i!” when the swimmers dive off the starting block, as well as when they make the turns. No one really knows the precise origin of this cheer, but some say it’s a shortened form of “tobase(i)”, which means “dive” or “jump”.
