「Different Minds」

黒子テツヤ (小野賢章) & 紫原 敦 (鈴村健一)
Kuroko Tetsuya (Ono Kenshou)
& Murasakibara Atsushi (Suzumura Kenichi)

“Your ideals and pretty words mean nothing here / Why can’t you see that?
If you’re gonna provoke me, then I’ll just have to show you
That it’s all an exercise in futility…”

Key:
Kuroko
Murasakibara
Unison

Translation:

We’re so different that it’s hard for us to see eye to eye / That much is clear
I don’t expect you to acknowledge me simply because I’m prepared to stand on the court

Your ideals and pretty words mean nothing here / Why can’t you see that?
If you’re gonna provoke me, then I’ll just have to show you
That it’s all an exercise in futility

Our conflicting values will run their course / And no matter what conclusion we reach—

It takes all kinds to make a world / That much I know
But I still have hopes and dreams that I refuse to compromise / That’s why
I can’t afford to lose

What’s so fun about this flawed sport? / It’s so irritating, but you still won’t give up
But I can do my best because it’s something I love / I want you to know how that feels

I won’t force my opinions on you / I’ll show you with my play / I can’t surrender this game

From the very beginning, we walked two different paths
If those one-sided hopes and dreams really mean that much to you
Then I’ll take you on

Our conflicting values will run their course
We can reach a conclusion / I’ll crush it to bits
I have longed for this victory

It takes all kinds to make a world / That much I know
But I still have hopes and dreams that I refuse to compromise / That’s why
From the very beginning, we walked two different paths
If those one-sided hopes and dreams really mean that much to you
Then I’ll take you on

Romaji:

Wakariau koto ga muzukashii hodo / chigai sugiru no wa meihaku de
Kooto no ue ni tatsu kakugo dake de wa / mitomerareru nante omottenai

Koko de wa risou ya kireigoto nanka / subete ga muimi tte wakannai no?
Iratsukaseru nara oshiete yaru yo / munashisa ni yugamu genjitsu wo

Butsukariau kachikan no hate no / ketsuron ga nan da toshitemo

Daremo ga onaji wake ja nai koto kurai / shitteru
Soredemo tsuranukitai omoi ya yume ga / aru kara
Makerarenai

Konna taikutsu na kekkan kyougi / atsukurushiku mata muki ni natte
Dakedo suki dakara ganbareru tte / kimi ni mo wakatte hoshii kara

Oshitsuke ja naku purei de shimesu / zettai yuzurenai shouri

Sorezore hajimari kara nanimokamo ga / chigau kedo
Sonna ni mukuwarenai omoi ya yume ga / ii nara
Aite ni naru

Butsukariau kachikan no hate ni
Tadoritsukeru / hineritsubusu
Kokoro ga motometeta shouri

Daremo ga onaji wake ja nai koto kurai / shitteru
Soredemo tsuranukitai omoi ya yume ga / aru kara
Sorezore hajimari kara nanimokamo ga / chigau kedo
Sonna ni mukuwarenai omoi ya yume ga / ii nara
Aite ni naru

    Thanks so much for your translation!!!
    I love this song, I didn’t expect their voices to blend so well, but they do and the result is awesome.
