[translation] 「次会う日まで」”Kuroko no Basuke” Duet Series Vol. 2 (Kuroko & Kise)

Beware: This song is incredibly catchy. I think it’s now permanently stuck in my head. :>

「次会う日まで」 – 黒子テツヤ (小野賢章) & 黄瀬涼太 (木村良平)
“Until the Day We Meet Again” – Kuroko Tetsuya (Ono Kensho) & Kise Ryouta (Kimura Ryouhei)

“We may be apart, but that doesn’t change our friendship;
I know just how hard you’ve worked, and that’s what keeps me going strong.”

– – –

Translation:

Before we meet again, I want to grow and improve
So that I can hold my head high when we stand on the same court
We may be apart, but that doesn’t change our friendship
I know just how hard you’ve worked, and that’s what keeps me going strong

The squeak of basketball shoes on the court
Reverberates just like a heartbeat
This place has taught us both frustration and laughter

Even though each of us has his own kind of talent
We go head-to-head and aim ever higher
Higher and higher and higher and higher
Seeking a challenge
Until we seize the greatest victory
If the road we travel is one and the same
Then forever and ever and ever and ever
We’ll be connected

Every time we compete, I want to make your heart pound with excitement
I acknowledge your strength / I can, ‘cause it’s you / And that’s who we are

I knew from the beginning
That this would never be easy
But I had no idea I would get totally lost in this dream

As I run after the ball, I’ll live up to my true potential
I want to get stronger / I’m wholeheartedly set on this goal
And yet, and yet, and yet, and yet
I’ve got so much farther to go
I can’t accept the fact that I made you lose heart
I’ll find even greater strength
I’ll never, never, never, never
Never let you down

Even though each of us has his own kind of talent
We go head-to-head and aim ever higher
Higher and higher and higher and higher
Seeking a challenge
Until we seize the greatest victory
If the road we travel is one and the same
Then forever and ever and ever and ever
We’ll be connected

Before we meet again, I want to grow and improve
So that I can hold my head high when we stand on the same court
Until the day we meet again
