Todokanai Koi — English lyric translation


Unreaching Love ‘13

Are you pretending to be alone? I found myself wondering why
Before I knew it, somehow, I was drawn to you more than anyone

How can I show my heart reflected in the mirror?

If I keep feeling this hopeless love, will the day come when it shows?
Until that hazy answer starts to appear
My love will stay stuck, unable to come alive

The day I first spoke to you, and you turned to me
You were so dazzling that I couldn’t look straight at you

How do I trace myself into your heart?

If I keep feeling this unfulfilled love, will the day come when it appears?
If the smallest bit of that hazy answer comes into view
I know my love will come alive

How can I show my heart reflected in the mirror?

If I keep feeling this hopeless love, will the day come when it shows?
Until that hazy answer starts to appear
My love will stay stuck, unable to come alive


Todokanai Koi 


『届かない恋 ’13』

孤独なふりをしてるの?なぜだろう 気になっていた
気づけば いつのまにか 誰より 惹かれていた

どうすれば この心は 鏡に映るの?

届かない恋をしていても 映しだす日がくるかな
ぼやけた答えが 見え始めるまでは
今もこの恋は 動き出せない

初めて声をかけたら 振り向いてくれたあの日
あなたは 眩しすぎて まっすぐ見れなかった

どうすれば その心に 私を写すの?

叶わない 恋をしていても 写しだす日がくるかな
ぼやけた答えが 少しでも見えたら
きっとこの恋は 動き始める

どうすれば この心は 鏡に映るの?

届かない恋をしていても 映しだす日がくるかな
ぼやけた答えが 見え始めるまでは
今もこの恋は 動き出せない
