It’s only love, it’s only love

If I can be granted just one wish
Let me sleep by your side
Any place will do
Beautiful World
Without wavering, my eyes are only on you
Beautiful Boy
You still don’t realize just how beautiful you are

It’s only love

Whether awake or asleep,
You just read and dream of shounen manga
Don’t you like yourself?

You don’t know what you want, [1]
But you can’t stop wanting it
Cold tears running down your cheeks

There’s nothing I want to tell you
I just want to meet you again
I’m unable to express what I want to say
Maybe I’m just a coward
But I guess that’s fine

If I can be granted just one wish
Let me sleep by your side
Any place will do
Beautiful world
Without wavering, my eyes are only on you
Beautiful boy
You still don’t realize just how beautiful you are

It’s only love

Try anything, even if you don’t succeed [2]
You’ll gain a little more experience

I don’t need a newspaper
The important things aren’t printed there
How’ve you been lately?
If you’ve been alright,
Then I guess it’s nothing

If we can meet before my world disappears
Let me sleep by your side
Any place will do
Beautiful world
Amidst the fleeting days passing us by
Beautiful boy
This uneasy feeling is inevitable, isn’t it

If one of my wishes were to come true
Let me sleep by your side

Beautiful world, beautiful boy…

  1. I have seen this translated as both “You don’t know what you want” and “I don’t know what I want”.
  2. Or, “even if you lose.”
