Lyrics (kanji) taken from the booklet.

“キマグレ” “自分勝手” “強がり”
指折り 笑う
だけどね 厭きれずに
そばにいてくれた

そのやさしさへと 甘えてきたよ
傷つけて いとしさ知っても
2人の恋はSee-Saw 同じ景色を
巡り廻るよmerry-go-round

こんな誰より 近いのにね
流星(ほし)よりも遠く感じて
トモダチでいすぎて
今更もう 素直に云えなくて…sorry
どうすれば伝わるの?
“…好きだよ”

なつかしい 夢の中 パズルを
抱え泣いた
バカみたい 癒えぬ傷 
他人(ひと)の所為にした

数式みたいに 1/2(にぶんのいち)に
割り切れば すこしは楽かな
だけど 君がまた 微笑むのなら
昨日の嘘も 許すよ

ちょっと苦くて 甘いdistance
まだちょっと 戸惑うけど
想いは時を超え ひとを結ぶ
もう1度信じられる かな
こころまで 暖かいよ
“…ありがとう”

こんな誰より 近いのにね
流星(ほし)よりも遠く感じて
トモダチでいすぎて
いつまでも 素直に云えなくて…sorry
不器用でも伝えるよ
“好きだよ”

Romaji lyrics:
“kimagure” “jibun katte” “tsuyogari”
yubiori warau
dakedo ne akirezu ni
soba ni ite kureta

sono yasashisa e to amaete kita yo
kizutsukete itoshisa shitte mo
futari no koi wa See-Saw onaji keshiki wo
meguri mawaru yo merry-go-round

konna dare yori chikai no ni ne
hoshi yori mo tooku kanjite
tomodachi de isugite
ima sara mou sunao ni ienakute... sorry
dousureba tsutawaru no?
“...suki da yo”

natsukashii yume no naka pazuru wo
kakae naita
baka mitai ienu kizu
hito no sei ni shita

suushiki mitai ni nibun no ichi ni
warikireba sukoshi wa raku ka na
dakedo kimi ga mata hohoemu no nara
kinou no uso mo yurusu yo

chotto nigakute amai distance
mada chotto tomadou kedo
omoi wa toki wo koe hito wo musubu
mou ichido shinjirareru ka na
kokoro made attakai yo
“… arigatou”

konna dare yori chikai no ni ne
hoshi yori mo tooku kanjite
tomodachi de isugite
itsumademo sunao ni ienakute... sorry
bukiyou demo tsutaeru yo
“suki da yo”


English translation:
"Capricious", "do as I wish", and "full of bluff"
I lead you around with smile and laughter
But not even once you got tired of me
and you stayed by my side

I've been spoiled sweet by your kindness
Even though I also understand what affectionate pain is
Our love is like a See-Saw... The same scenery
will turn around and around, like Merry-Go-Round

Even though I am so close to you, closer than anyone else
It feels like we're far apart, farther than shooting stars
Being friends was more than enough for me
I can't tell you straightforwardly now that it's too late... sorry
How should I tell you?
"... I love you"

In the nostalgic sentimental dream,
I took the puzzle pieces and cried
How foolish I am, that the wound that never heal
I blamed it to others

Just like a mathematical formula, if we divide it into halves
I wonder if it'll become slightly easier for us
But as long as you can smile again
I'll even forgive for your lies yesterday

This sweet, yet a bit bitter distance
Though I'm still a bit confused
My feeling will surpass the time and knot people together
I wonder if I can believe it once again
This warmth even reached my heart
"...Thank you."

Even though I am so close to you, closer than anyone else
It feels like we're far apart, farther than shooting stars
Being friends was more than enough for me
For always unable to tell you straightforwardly... sorry
But even if it's awkward, I will tell you
"I love you"
