Starlight

Romaji Lyrics English Translation

Donna ni toki ga sugite ittemo
Kawaranai mono wa koko ni
Bokura no hoshi wa ano yozora de
Ima mo kagayaiteru

Omou you ni susumenai
Hibi wo mata kurikaeshite
Koboreochita kuyashisa ga
Me no mae kumoraseteta

Akogare ga yume ni kawatta shunkan
Bokura wa hoshifuru oka no ue ni tatte
Te wo nobashita ne

Donna ni toki ga sugite ittemo
Kawaranai mono wa koko ni
Miushinaisou ni natta toki wa
Kitto omoidashite

Tsukamenakutemo todokanakutemo
Kinou yori chikazukitai
Hashiritsuzukete kanaeru made
Ano hi no hikari ga
Ima mo senaka wo osu

Shizundeku yuuhi sae
Kizukazu ni hashirinuketa
Doko ni datte ikeru hazu
Shinjiteta bokura ga ita

Ano koro no kimochi wasuretakunai yo
Negau dake ja tarinakutemo sou issho ni
Fumidaseru kara

Donna ni tooku hanarete itemo
Taisetsu na mono wa koko ni
Hitori fuan ni natta toki wa
Kitto omoidashite

Tomadoi nagara kizutsuki nagara
Mada mienai asu wo sagasu
Ippozutsu demo sono kiseki ga
Yume no sono saki he
Ima mo michibiiteru

Namida kakusenai hibi mo
Hitori ja nai minna ga ita
Onaji kisetsu wo koe bokura wa
Onaji hikari wo mezasu

Donna ni toki ga sugite ittemo
Kawaranai mono wa koko ni
Miushinaisou ni natta toki wa
Kitto omoidashite

Tsukamenakutemo todokanakutemo
Kinou yori chikazukitai
Hashiritsuzukete kanaeru made
Ano hi no hikari ga
Ima mo senaka wo osu

No matter how much time may pass,
What lies in our hearts will never change
And when night comes, you’ll always find our star,
Shining there in the sky

Yet another day goes by
Where things just don’t work out,
And that frustration clouds my vision
As the tears run down

When we realized we wanted to be like our idols too,
We stood upon that hill, as the shooting stars flew by,
And reached for the stars

So no matter how much time may pass,
What lies in our hearts will never change
And if ever you think you may forget
I know you’ll remember

That even when something seems out of your reach
You’re always getting that little bit closer
So let’s keep running ’till our dreams come true,
With the light we saw that day
Pushing us ever onward

We kept on running, blinded
To even the setting of the sun
Back then, we thought we could go
Wherever we wanted

I never want to forget how we felt as kids
Even when our hopes were dashed, we convinced each other
To take that first step anyway

So no matter how far apart we may be
What lies in our hearts is what really matters
And when you feel alone and unsure what to do
I know you’ll remember

That despite our worries, and despite our pain
We went looking for an untold future
Step by step, we’ll keep following in those footsteps
As they lead us ever closer
To making our dreams come true

When I couldn’t help but cry
I was never alone, you were there for me
We spent our days together as one
Always hunting the same starlight

So no matter how much time may pass,
What lies in our hearts will never change
And if ever you think you may forget
I know you’ll remember

That even when something seems out of your reach
You’re always getting that little bit closer
So let’s keep running ’till our dreams come true,
With the light we saw that day
Pushing us ever onward

I fucking love this song so much you can’t even know. It’s so gooood. So moving. I’m having this weird moment, doing these song translations now after Ginga’s over, of there being a spate of episodes that made me question my love of the show and then just… a fantastic ending, and an excuse to go back and pour over the words of these amazing songs has rekindled that love all over again.
