Arashi Hikari (光) English Lyrics [KAN/ROM/ENG]

A friend mentioned that many of the songs on Untitled haven't been translated, 3 years later, so I decided to do my favourite one. It actually frustrated me that there's no exact English translation for this song, because I want every Arashian to understand it! So, I tried my best :)

Notes:
 - Please don't retranslate into other languages! I wouldn't usually mind, but there are too many nuances in lyrics that would get lost in another translation.
 - Feel free to use my version of the lyrics for any purposes, but don't just paste the whole thing somewhere else. Link to this post instead :)
 - There is no one-way to translate from Japanese into English, especially when it comes to lyrics, so there is no real right or wrong version of lyrics. If you think I made a mistake please point it out, but this is just my personal interpretation of the lyrics! Any variations are simply different general interpretations.
 - I also have no clue if this is supposed to be religious because the concert version uses scenes of a church and the connotations of their words definitely imply religion, but they never mentioned anything explicitely related to religion so... take it as you will!

恐れずに顔上げて 闇の先 目を凝らせば
微かなあの灯火が 僕らを導いてる
 
Alright ありふれてる 日々の中で見つけた
輝きは きっとIt's okay 嘘じゃない Yeah
 
煌めくLights 光が暗闇をそっと照らし出す
Lights 消えない傷みさえもかき消すように
ささやかでも 幸せは目の前にあるよ
 
So lights 一人で変わらない過去嘆くより
Lights 誰かと失敗さえ笑い飛ばしたい
未来へとOh yeah 輝くようにLights up Lights on
もっと光って Wow wow Oh yeah 歩いていこう
 
幸せを数えたり また人と比べてたら
本当に大事なモノを 見失いかけてた
 
Alright 忘れかけた 気持ち思い出せたよ
喜びは ずっとIn your eyes 変わらない Yeah
 
輝くLights 光はどんな時もきっとそこにある
Lights いつでも恐れずに目をそらさないように
目指していた あの明日をずっと照らしている
 
So lights 急いで近道ばかり探すより
Lights 誰かとこの景色を分け合いたいから
季節がOh yeah 過ぎてくようにLights up Lights on
もっと笑って Wow wow Oh yeah 自由さがそう
 
星の光る空に 願いを
生まれ変わる世界と Let's get down
 
なんか毎日slowだな きっとそんな苦悩かな
あるのかすらとふと疑う そんな日々の向こう側
微かでも光射す方へと いま僕は向かうよ
降らすよ歓びを 掴むよう 共に歌うよ
 
奇跡か偶然なんて もうどっちでもいいから
希望を灯して
 
煌めくLights 光が暗闇をそっと照らし出す
Lights 消えない傷みさえもかき消すように
ささやかでも 幸せは目の前にあるよ
 
So lights 一人で変わらない過去嘆くより
Lights 誰かと失敗さえ笑い飛ばしたい
未来へとOh yeah 輝くようにLights up Lights on
もっと光って Wow wow Oh yeah 歩いていこう

Just stand up
Just stand up
It's alright (Just stand up)
It's alright (Just stand up)
 
Don't be afraid, lift your head, if you cast your sight beyond the darkness,
That faint glow is guiding us.
 
Alright, I found it within the common days,
The glitter is for sure, It's okay, it's not a lie, yeah.
 
Glistening lights! A ray softly pierces the darkness,
Lights! Just to erase that persistent ache,
Though it's small, happiness is before your eyes.
 
So lights! Grieving a past that I can't change myself,
Lights! I just wanna laugh away my mistakes with someone,
To the future, oh yeah, to make it shine, lights up! Lights on!
Shine more, wow wow oh yeah, let's step forward.
 
When I counted my happiness, and compared it with others,
I lost sight of the things that truly matter.
 
Alright, I could recall, the feelings I started to forget,
Joy is always In your eyes, it doesn't change, yeah.
 
Sparkling lights! Light, will be there at any time,
Lights! So you don't ever fear and don't look away,
I had my eye on it, it's always shining upon that tomorrow.
 
So lights! Rather than only rushing to find a shortcut,
Lights! I wanna share this scenery with someone,
So this time of year, oh yeah, passes by, lights up! Lights on!
Smile more, wow wow oh yeah, let's search for freedom.
 
A world where my wish,
For a sky where stars shine, is born again, Let’s get down.
 
Somehow every day is slow, I severely suffer with that,
If it were to exist I'd be doubtful - across the days like those.
Though it's faint, I'll now face where the light shines,
Shed a light, seize the joy, sing with me.
 
Whether it's a miracle or coincidence, it's fine either way,
It brings out a hope.
 
Glistening lights! A ray softly pierces the darkness,
Lights! Just to erase that persistent ache,
Though it's small, happiness is before your eyes.
 
So lights! Grieving a past that I can't change myself,
Lights! I just wanna laugh away my mistakes with someone,
To the future, oh yeah, to make it shine, lights up! Lights on!
Shine more, wow wow oh yeah, let's step forward.
