Blabbering of a Fool

星のかけらを探しに行こう Again (Hoshi no Kakera o Sagashi ni Yukou Again) lyrics & translation

The song was originally performed by 福耳, but this version I have transcribed is covered by the iDOLM@STER idols and contains extra verses and lines. Cheers!
As usual, let me know if I’m doing something wrong with the translation, and because I’m no romantic, tell me how I can improve on the “feel” of the translation as well!🙂

Original lyrics transcribed from 歌詞ナビ.

今宵 星のかけらを探しに行こう
koyoi hoshi no kakera o sagashi ni yukou
舟はもう銀河に浮かんでる
fune wa mou ginga ni ukanderu
願い忘れたことがあったから
negai wasureta koto ga atta kara
もう一度 向かい合わせで恋しよう
mou ichido mukai awase de koi shiyou

初めての出逢いみたいね こんなにときめいてる
hajimete no deai mitai ne konna ni tokimeiteru
夜空と街灯り 輝いてひとつになる
yozora to machiakari kagayaite hitotsu ni naru
蒼いシリウスが目じるし はぐれそうになっても
aoi shiriusu (Sirius) ga mejirushi hagure sou ni natte mo
抱きしめて両手で この場所で待ってる
dakishimete ryoute de kono basho de matteru

きっと 近すぎて 遠すぎて
kitto chikasugite toosugite
少しずつ見えなくなった
sukoshi zutsu mienaku natta
だけど今 素直になれる気がする
dakedo ima sunao ni nareru ki ga suru

ふたり 夏の星座をくぐりぬけて
futari natsu no seiza o kuguri nukete
光の波間に揺られてる
hikari no namima ni yurareteru
話し足りないことがあったから
hanashi tarinai koto ga atta kara
もう一度 向かい合わせで恋しよう
mou ichido mukai awase de koi shiyou

この宇宙(そら)を見上げていると 遠い記憶がうずく
kono sora o miagete iru to tooi kioku ga uzuku
生まれる前のこと 想い出しそうになる
umareru mae no koto omoi dashisou ni naru

こうして巡り合ったこと 偶然じゃないかもね
kou shite meguri atta koto guuzen ja nai ka mo ne
運命の導き 信じてみたくなる
unmei no michibiki shinjite mitaku naru

ずっと そばにいる 愛してる
zutto soba ni iru aishiteru
君だけを感じていたい
kimi dake o kanjite itai
誰よりも大切だってわかった
dare yori mo taisetsu datte wakatta

今宵 星のかけらを探しに行こう
koyoi hoshi no kakera o sagashi ni yukou
舟はもう銀河に浮かんでる
fune wa mou ginga ni ukanderu
願い忘れたことがあったから
negai wasureta koto ga atta kara
もう一度 向かい合わせで恋しよう
mou ichido mukai awase de koi shiyou

だから 星のかけらを探しに行こう
dakara hoshi no kakera o sagashi ni yukou
舟はもう銀河に浮かんでる
fune wa mou ginga ni ukanderu
願い忘れたことを届けたい
negai wasureta koto o todoketai
静かに見つめ合ってね
shizuka ni mitsume atte ne

星のかけらを探しに行こう
hoshi no kakera o sagashi ni yukou
舟はもう銀河に浮かんでる
fune wa mou ginga ni ukanderu
願い忘れたことがあったから
negai wasureta koto ga atta kara
もう一度 向かい合わせで恋しよう
mou ichido mukai awase de koi shiyou

今度はもっともっと素直になれるよ
kondo wa motto motto sunao ni nareru yo
もう二度とふたりはぐれないように・・・
mou nido to futari hagurenai you ni…

星のかけらを探しに行こう
hoshi no kakera o sagashi ni yukou

In Search for Fragments of Stars Again

Let us go in search for fragments of stars tonight
The boat is already out afloat on the Milky Way
And because we have some forgotten wishes
Just one more time, let us face each other and fall in love

This thrill I’m experiencing, it’s like when we’d first met
Under the radiance of the night sky and street lights, I stand alone
Even if I become lost, under the mark of the blue Sirius
I will be waiting here, for the embrace in your arms

Whether we are too close, or too distant
We’ll slowly but surely lose sight of each other
However at this moment, I feel I’m becoming more honest about myself

Together, we will pass the summer constellations
And swing on the waves of light
And because stories are never enough
Just one more time, let us face each other and fall in love

As I look up into this sky, distant memories come throbbing back*
As though remembering a past before my birth

Perhaps our encounter then was not by chance
And so I start to believe in destiny

For ever, I want to be by your side, loving you
And you are the only one I wish to feel
For I’ve realized, you’re more important to me than anyone else

Let us go in search for fragments of stars tonight
The boat is already out afloat on the Milky Way
And because we have some forgotten wishes
Just one more time, let us face each other and fall in love

Therefore, let us go in search for fragments of stars
The boat  is already out afloat on the Milky Way
And because we have some forgotten wishes
Let us lock eyes with each other in serenity

Let us go in search for fragments of stars
The boat is already out afloat on the Milky Way
And because we have some forgotten wishes
Just one more time, let us face each other and fall in love

This time, I will become more and more honest with myself
And we will never again stray from each other…

Let us go in search for fragments of stars
