(Japanese / English translation) Translation by Tiana Xiao

(Was it an accident.... or destiny?)

Destiny destiny destiny Distant yet so familiar It's callin' me Destiny destiny destiny So inevitable like It's meant to be 胸のチェーンが はじけ飛んで the necklace on my chest broke all of a sudden 星や月が散らばって stars and moons scattering everywhere 「なんか悪い予感」って "hmm, I've got a bad feeling about this...." それだけじゃ片付かなくて it's something I can't quite disentangle そんな時はかなり back then 友達(ひと)のアドバイス my friends gave me a lot of advice 恋の占い 揺れちゃって and some love horoscopes were shaking (my determination) ちょっと強いアクション it was a bit of a strong action 怖がってばかりいたけど I was pretty scared 本当か嘘かなんて関係ない it doesn't matter if it's the truth or a lie この気持ちは隠せない I can't hide my feelings anymore 君のことしか もう見えない the only thing I could see is you Destiny destiny destiny Distant yet so familiar It's callin' me Destiny destiny destiny So inevitable like It's meant to be 星たちを結んでいく糸は the stars align to form a thread (that connects us) きっと信じる この想いだけ it's just this feeling that I wanna believe in (us) 花や空や 人もどこか "the flowers and the skies, and even other people" 同じ場所で 繋がって "I wanna connect (with) them at the same place" ちょっと熱いリアクション I had a bit of a hot reaction (to what you said) するたびに煌めいてくんだ every time (we talk about these things), I see a light in you (lit: you are/it's sparkling/glittering) なんて話している君は ぜったい when you talk about these things 守りたい 壊れそうな時代 "I wanna protect the world that seems like it may fall apart" 真っすぐな瞳(め)に惹かれていく I'm attracted to your honest eyes Destiny destiny destiny Distant yet so familiar It's callin' me Destiny destiny destiny So inevitable like It's meant to be Destiny destiny destiny Distant yet so familiar It's callin' me Destiny destiny destiny So inevitable like It's meant to be I love you... って "I love you" 伝えたいときほど as much as I wanna tell you こんなに 胸が切ないけど so much that my heart pines

(Breakdown...) (Destiny... I'm livin' my dream) (It's my destiny... do you believe?) Destiny Destiny Destiny Distant yet so familiar It's callin' me Destiny Destiny Destiny So inevitable like It's meant to be (Take it up) Destiny.... Destiny Destiny Destiny 君とこの瞬間 広い宇宙に in the vast universe, I am with you at this moment in time Destiny Destiny Destiny キラキラと線を 描いているんだ (our destiny is) drawing a glittering thread Destiny Destiny Destiny いつかは世界が "some day the world... 終わっちゃったって ...will come to an end" Destiny Destiny Destiny ねぇ 星のように 側にいたいよ hey, just like the stars, I wanna be by your side 永遠に光っていく糸は the thread that glows forever キュンと痛い胸の奥 deep in my heart, I feel a sudden pain そっと落ちてく gently falling あったかい涙なのかな a warm teardrop (Smooth it out / Cool / Mellow / Part II) I’m livin’ my dream It’s my destiny Boy, do ya believe Universal destiny Boy is it a dream? Or our destiny It’s our destiny Hey it was just meant to be I'm livin' my dream It's my destiny Boy, do ya believe I know it's my destiny
