Out of the jungle of Kan-Nana Highway, [1]
Beyond the rainbow, right there.
Dreaming Driving...
(Dreaming Driving...)

I'll step on the gas and drive like the wind;
I don't feel anything for that scenery.
Dreaming Driving...
(Dreaming Driving...)

The scent
Of the sunset streets and bright red sky,
Is a sweet caramelised vanilla --
Sweet Memory.

Non presto! A heavyish rhythm [!!]
Beats in my headphones.
The most amazing urge,
This is my "bye-bye to usual life" vacation.

Don't stop! Once I've drunk in the wind,
I'll head to paradise.
Entry is free;
Whether you come or not is up to you.

(La-La-La, La, La...)
I'll only live once, so I can't stop.
Nothing is impossible.

Once I get off the Kohoku circuit, [2]
There's a panorama of cerulean blue.
Dreaming Driving...
(Dreaming Driving...)

Fly higher than a bird, no control;
I don't feel anything for you anymore.
Dreaming Driving...
(Dreaming Driving...)

Memories of this town, the scent
Of the gentle rain
Brings faint tears, chocolate gateau -- [!!]
Sweet Memory.

Espresso! A bitter experience [!!]
Is squeezing my heart.
No matter if I feel down,
This is my "bye-bye to yesterday" vacation.

Don't stop! The sunshine is my landmark;
I'll play to my heart's content.
Free from rules,
Everything is all up to me.

(La-La-La, La, La...)
I'll only live once, so I can't stop.
Now's the time, it has to be now.

(x2)  Oh yeah!
        Lata-tada-ta (Lata-tada-ta...)
        Lata-tada-ta (Lata-tada-ta...)
        Dreaming Driving

(La-La-La, La, La...)
I'll only live once, so I can't stop.
Nothing is impossible.

I drove through the Asahina Sky Gate [3]
And looked down at the calm evening mountain pass.
Dreaming Driving...
(Dreaming Driving...)

The sea breeze gently enveloped me,
And the scenery stole my heart.
Dreaming Driving...
(Dreaming Driving...)

I'm falling in love with Shonan again, [4]
A rollercoaster heading for the aurora.
Dreaming Driving...
(Dreaming Driving...)

I'll step on the gas and drive like the wind;
I don't feel anything for you anymore.
Dreaming Driving...
(Driving, Driving...)
Translator's Notes:
[!!] (from Oasis Heart3) This song references a LOT of areas in Yokohama, probably because YUKA lived near that area. YUKA might also be using Italian words (non presto, espresso, etc.) as a sort of homage, since racing (and race cars) is something Italy is famous for. "Non presto" means "not too soon". "Espresso" means "expressed/faster". And lastly, chocolate gateau is basically a rich, elaborate chocolate cake. Look online for some delicious images. :D

[1] A highway that runs from Ohta, Tokyo to Edogawa, a coastal area of Tokyo. Its official name is Route 318, but it was originally named "Tokyo-to Shi-keikaku Douro Kansen Gairo Kanjo Dai Nana Gousen" ("Tokyo Metropolitan Highway Loop 7"), which people (understandably!) shortened to “Kan-Nana Doori” or “Kan-Nana”.

[2] Kouhoku is a ward/district of Yokohama.

[3] Asahina is a town in Kanazawa-ku, another area of Yokohama. There isn't a "sky gate" there, though. :D

[4] Shonan is yet another area of Yokohama, and is known as a resort area.
