Hey, did I really, get this much, into you?

Yeah, you, are an idol, it’s not a normal kind of love, right?

You know, today I’ll tell you my feelings through a letter!

A fan letter is not a really wholesome thing.

I really love your figure gleamingly sparkling,

but every time my love becomes bigger, my chest hurts,

so I put you inside your beloved heart-sign*!

 

A love letter for the one I love, I know, you are everyone’s idol,

but even so, with this love letter, I want to make you just mine.

Won’t you meet me secretly?

Eh? Eh? Why is that? There’s no reply…

Why? Why? That’s strange… You do remember me…

I see! I wrote my name in the love letter

but you can’t tell because there’s no photo! If I were you I couldn’t tell!

The next time I’ll put a photo as well and the reply will come!

 

I want to meet you, love letter, I want to see your smile close by just for a bit,

if you think about it, love letter, I gave you everything.

Only 5 seconds are not enough, I can’t see anything from this far,

should I buy more CDs? Should I buy expensive tickets?

 

Gradually, my money is no more enough, gradually we got further away from each other,

gradually those 5 seconds have become fewer, gradually you forgot about me.

 

Ah! I can’t… Ah! Live like this!

Ah! I want to meet YOU! Ah! I** want to meet you!

 

I’ve been waiting for ever but the reply won’t come,

but I’ll write a love letter today as well.

 

A love letter for the one I love, I know, you are everyone’s idol,

but even so, with this love letter, I want to make you just mine.

 

My love letter will reach you? I’ll make you happy for sure!

Love letter, I watch you more than anyone else

so won’t you meet me secretly?

At the first meet-and-greet, my mind went blank

At the second meet-and-greet, I prepared something to see before coming

At the third meet-and-greet, you praised my hat

At the fourth meet-and-greet, you remembered my face

At the fifth meet-and-greet, you gave a nickname

At the sixth meet-and-greet, you remember that nickname

Today is the hundredth meet-and-greet, we should make it an anniversary,

I’ll give you my love letter which I wrote putting my heart into it.

 

Notes and Other

*=referring to the classic “heart-pose” of most of idol dances.

**= this two lines have the same meaning, but the first sentence puts the attention on the “you” will the second one on the “I”, showing a kind of perversion of the speaker, becoming possessive.

A song about the unrequited love for a idol becoming more and more obsessive with time. The lyrics reflect that too.
