Note on kanji follows translation.

Broken Heart Samba
Lyrics: Ishikawa Eri
Composition / Arrangement: Hashimoto Yukari
Vocals: Kitamura Yuusaku (CV: Nojima Hirofumi)

Wind! Blow through! Carry away everything!
Rain! Pour down! Wash away everything!

Don’t be afraid of loss and curl yourself up.
Be bold! Looking back,
Even after regret, is a fine thing to do!

Even if it may smash me to pieces, I can only be what I am.
Broken heart samba, broken heart samba! If you’d laugh at me, then laugh!
My heart that has been burned by these feelings that are like midsummer is my medal.
I’ve received tomorrow!

Today and tomorrow, if you are not here,
Perhaps the color of my dreams and my hopes will fade away.

Don’t cling to your pride and try to look cool.
Hard enough to destroy yourself,
Hold on to your guts and your courage, and push on forward!

Whether or not it is my fate, I will not run away.
Broken heart samba, broken heart samba! Even if my sight grows dark with tears.
Let’s soak in the sunset and dye ourselves in grief.
Staying like that, let’s go anywhere!

Don’t be afraid of loss and curl yourself up.
Be bold! Looking back,
Even after regret, is a fine thing to do!

Even if it may smash me to pieces, I can only be what I am.
Broken heart samba, broken heart samba! If you’d laugh at me, then laugh!
My heart that has been burned by these feelings that are like midsummer is my medal.
I’ve received tomorrow!

Notes:
-Verse 4, line 1: Sung あす (asu, “tomorrow”), the kanji reads 未来 (mirai, “future”).

Shitsuren Sanba
Lyrics: Ishikawa Eri
Composition / Arrangement: Hashimoto Yukari

Kaze yo! fuke yo!   nani mo kamo saratte ku
Ame yo! bute yo!   subete wo arainagashite

Ushinau koto wo osorete   chidjikomaru na
Ga・mu・sha・ra!   furikaeru no wa
Koukai no ato datte   ii ja nai ka!

Sore de kudakechirou to mo   ore wa ore de shika nai
Shitsuren sanba   shitsuren sanba   warau nara warae
Manatsu no you na omoi ni   kogashita kokoro wa kunshou sa
Ashita wa moratta!

Kyou mo asu mo   anata ga inai no nara
Yume mo kibou mo   iroasete shimau darou

Puraido ni shigamitsuite   kakko tsukeru na
Jibun wo   hakai suru hodo
Gattsu to yuuki motte   tsukisusume!

Sore ga shukumei darou to mo   ore wa ore wa nigenai
Shitsuren banzai   shitsuren banzai   namida ni kurete mo
Yuuhi wo tappuri abite   aishuu ni somari
Doko made mo   kono mama de ikou

Ushinau koto wo osorete   chidjikomaru na
Ga・mu・sha・ra!   furikaeru no wa
Koukai no ato datte   ii ja nai ka!

Sore de kudakechirou to mo   ore wa ore de shikanai
Shitsuren sanba   shitsuren sanba   warau nara warae
Manatsu no you na omoi ni   kogashita kokoro wa kunshou sa
Ashita wa moratta!

失恋サンバ
作詞:石川絵理
作曲・編曲:橋本由香里
歌:北村祐作 (CV:野島裕史)

風よ!吹けよ! なにもかもさらってく
雨よ!打てよ! すべてを洗い流して

失うことを恐れて ちぢこまるな
我・武・者・羅! 振り返るのは
後悔のあとだって イイじゃないか!

それで砕け散ろうとも 俺は俺でしかない
失恋サンバ 失恋サンバ 笑うなら笑え
真夏のような想いに 焦がした心は勲章さ
明日はもらった!

今日も未来も あなたがいないのなら
夢も希望も 色あせてしまうだろう

プライドにしがみついて カッコつけるな
自分を 破壊するほど
ガッツと勇気持って 突き進め!

それが宿命だろうとも 俺は俺は逃げない
失恋バンザイ 失恋バンザイ 涙にくれても
夕陽をたっぷり浴びて 哀愁に染まり
どこまでも このままで行こう

失うことを恐れて ちぢこまるな
我・武・者・羅! 振り返るのは
後悔のあとだって イイじゃないか!

それで砕け散ろうとも 俺は俺でしかない
失恋サンバ 失恋サンバ 笑うなら笑え
真夏のような想いに 焦がした心は勲章さ
明日はもらった!
