“Step Forward”

“Step Forward”

Last month, the Soka Gakkai Youth Division launched its first online collaborative project, UTATSUKU (Make a Song), calling all youth and friends from across the world to join in the process of making a shared song towards May 3.

Today on this significant day, it is with greatest joy to present the newly completed song, titled, “Step Forward”! Heartiest Congratulations to all!
 
Let’s enjoy and also learn to sing this new World Youth Division song “Step Forward” together!

(4) English Material: Lyrics

No matter how far
I can feel what you’re feeling
Just gimme a smile, cause that’s all that I need

We don’t need the rain
For tomorrow to blossom
The hope for the future is in you and me

One look at the past and it’s easy to see
We take it for granted, the meaning of free
But still the sun rises to start a new day
So water these roots with the tears of today

It’s so easy to forget that we are not alone
Living life like we’re the only people in the world
And in turn it made us lose a little bit of soul
It’s time to wake up, it’s not too late for changing
So spread your love and heart to the world

We’re taking a step forward, yeah you and me.
There’s challenge ahead so we gotta believe
As long as you’re smiling I know that we’ll be
Shining the light so the whole world can see

The weight of my worries are burdening me
But I won’t give in cause my heart’s leading me
No matter if seasons are losing their glow
We’re calling on the spring to tell the winter to go

Yesterday I treated you just like a stranger
But this suffering has brought us all together
All we gotta do is open up a little more
Let’s come together, unity forever
So start with this promise of hope

We’re taking a step forward, yeah you and me

There’s challenge ahead so we gotta believe

As long as you’re smiling I know that we’ll be

Shining the light so the whole world can see
