Mijika ni aru mono
Tsune ni ki wo tsuketeinai to
Amari ni chikasugite
Miushinatte shimaisou

Anata ga saikin taiken shita
Shiawase wa ittai nan desuka
Megumare sugiteite
Omoidasenai kamo

Ima koko ni iru koto
Iki wo shiteiru koto
Tade sore dake no koto ga
Kiseki da to kizuku

Mijika ni aru mono
Tsune ni ki wo tsuketeinai to
Amari ni chikasugite
Miushinatte shimaisou

You know the closer you get to something
The tougher it is to see it
And I'll never take it for granted
Lets go!

Hitodasuke wo gizen to
Yobu yatsura mo iru kedo
Shinjiru no mo utagau no mo
Hito sorezore dakara
Tatoe kari ni sore ga
Gizen de atta toshite mo
Dareka wo sukueta nara
Soryamushiro nani yori mo zutto
Oitsuzuketekita yume
Akiramezuni susume yo nante
Kirei koto wo ieru hodo
Nanimo dekichainai kedo
Hitonigiri no yuuki wo mune ni
Ashita wo ikinuku tame ni
And I'll never take it for granted
Lets go!

Mijika ni arumono
Tsune ni ki wo tsuketeinai to
Amari ni chikasugite
Miushinatte shimaisou
You know the closer you get to something
The tougher it is to see it
And I'll never take it for granted
Oitsuzuketekita yume
Akiramezuni susume you nante
Kirei koto wo ieru hodo
Nanimo dekichainai kedo
Hitonigiri no yuuki wo mune ni
Ashita wo ikinuku tame ni
And I'll never take it for granted
Lets go!

    I think both the Japanese and the English Version of song has a motivational meaning to it - particularly the English version. Basically, the only place where you can find true happiness isn't anywhere else but within yourself. YOU are in charge of your own life, and YOU'RE the one who is responsible for making the most of it, hence "life is an opportunity." The moments you have in your life are numbered and precious, if you keep dwelling on the bad things you already did before, and/or waiting for the next thing to happen by itself - you are wasting time, because you have to do it yourself... and one day, it will all disappear (i.e. you will eventually die), and you don't want to live your last moments thinking that you wasted your years and achieved nothing, regretting all that you could have done simply because you wanted to avoid failing. It's not easy to get over failure, but the difficulty and struggling is worth it if you want to survive longer - that is, if you believe you can stand up for yourself in achieving the best you can do.

    All that is near we must know
    could dissapear any day be careful
    the main key to finding happines
    lies nowhere else but in my soul

    You could reminisce you could recall
    the wery last time you felt joy
    or maybe you are so blessed to a point
    where you can't remember anything

    It's a harmony,a miracle
    being able to breath and live at all
    so here is your one and only chance
    life is an opportunity

    All that is near we must know
    could dissapear any day be careful
    the main key to finding happines
    lies nowhere else but in my soul

    You know the closer you get to something
    the tougher it is to see it
    and i'll never take it for granted
    lets go!

    Some people may call a kind deed
    an act of mere hipocrisy
    but nevermind those who has lost lost faith
    you shouldn't give in to what they say

    As a matter of fact let me tell you
    even if it was for a selfish cause
    a salvagable hipocrisy
    is superior to murderous honesty

    Everybody tells you for time to time
    to never give up like a phrase for a movie
    they tell you to stand up for yourself
    as if it always that easy

    Gather a handful of courage in my heart
    to go on and survive another day
    and i'll never take it for granted
    lets go!

    I think it means to love what you have before you lose it like a relitive dying or smething you love like a dog got lost or stolen would you feel sad? But still its meaning is still rather normal amoung other writers and pop groups... :)
