english translation

    Like two stars
    Sleeping in the night sky
    Happening across each other
    We had a mutual encounter
    Though I resisted
    The signs of fate
    I eventually realized
    I was in love with you

    (Gazing at each other)
    In the depths (attraction)
    Of your eyes (telling)
    Why is it (yearning for you)
    There's a nostalgic (gentle)
    Light (stillness)
    In this universe painted black
    I believed in the possibility of that
    Existence

    I don't know when it was
    The people around us
    Began calling you my rival
    And I became aware of it
    We were able to live strong
    Because we competed with each other
    If you should happen to disappear
    What would I do?
    Beloved rival

    Though we should
    Mutually hate each other
    A different sort of feeling
    Has sprouted

    (From a distance)
    I heard (on the wind)
    A rumor (jealousy)
    Someday (I want to meet)
    The other (illusion)
    Me (a mirror)
    In this world where I can't see anything
    Who am I fighting for?
    Tell me

    Before I knew it
    Even I was convinced
    That I had to beat you
    As your rival
    That I had to keep shining
    At the same level as you
    And now finally, you're dancing there
    By my side
    Beloved rival

    I don't know when it was
    The people around us
    Began calling you my rival
    And I became aware of it
    We were able to live strong
    Because we competed with each other
    If you should happen to disappear
    What would I do?
    Beloved rival
