Drifting

Composer: Jay Chou (周杰倫) (周杰伦)
Lyricist: Vincent Fang (方文山) (方文山)


Theme song to the movie Initial D

Takeuchi Itsuki (Chapman To): It's very simple
Just like drifting
How do you drift?
Into the corner
Just pull the handbrake
The car will drift a bit
So what?
It's cool

(Alternative Opening)

Bunta Fujiwara (Anthony Wong): Put this in the car
Don't spill a single drop, or I'll beat you to death
Go

Get a pen to write into my diary to record the courage
I can face the wall letting my fist revolt
Breathe through the glass sunroof breaking open my body
The engine sound here is like a kind of musical instrument

That's why
The wind roars and passes excitingly
That's why
I drift while turning the corner

Add all the horsepower
Drift all the way
Look carefully
0 to 100 kph
Who dares to be my enemy?

I use the first person pronoun
Drifting youth
The propriety between winning and losing
Is calculated very accurately
I step onto the wind-fire rings
Drifting youth
The we in the story
Are acting out our own lives

Ryosuke Takahashi (Edison Chen): If you beat all the drivers of Gunma Mountain Road, I'll race you
Takeshi Nakazato (Shawn Yue): Mountain road!
Ryosuke Takahashi (Edison Chen): Going downhill! Then starting from tomorrow, you start from the South, I'll start from the North, competing against different drivers, to see who can win the most, how's that?

The contrast between winning and losing
Is the ability of cruelty
Luck
Is never on my side
Real strength cannot be imitated
Drifting
Man and car one body
Drifting
Smiling and looking at myself in the rear-view mirror
Oh

Ignite
Continue
It's a matter of
Honour

Apart from number one
I have no interest in the others

Proper drift
Proper drift
Proper drift
I drink beverage calmly
Smiling relaxed

Proper drift
Proper drift
A proper drift
Proper drift
Proper drift
A proper drift
I go round the mountainside
The sound of the rain beats down
I go round the mountainside
The sound of the rain beats down
Proper drift
Proper drift
A proper drift
Proper drift
Proper drift
A proper drift
And then driving into the tunnel
The sound of the wind whinny and neigh
And then driving into the tunnel
The sound of the wind whinny and neigh
