Love Live! – Bokura wa Ima no Naka de

μ’s, Love Live! OP

We Are Here in the Present
Lyrics: Hata Aki
Composition / Arrangement: Mori Shintarou
Vocals: μ’s

Our direct and honest feelings link all of us together,
Earnest but awkward colliding hearts.
Even so, we want to see great dreams,
And they’re right here; they’ve just started.

(I know)
It’s not all fun and games – we’ll be tested along the way.
(I know)
But that adversity is our future.
(Here we go)
When we’re together, we become our stronger selves.
(I’m sure) We’ll continue to change. (We’ll be stars!)
