ENGLISH

(Game Version)

Dance, put on a mask for
The masked ball of fate
Where both the truth and lies are shrouded in total darkness

It’s not meant to be the end
Because it was already over before it began
All that was left behind was loneliness and pain

Under the pale moonlight,
The words that we exchanged only once
Have already been frozen in place,
Broken into pieces
Without leaving any fragments behind

Because it’s impossible for us
I will keep these feelings locked inside my heart
Because I can’t reach you,
I can only chase after the wind for eternity
Because I can’t have you,
I’m unable to shake off the sadness in my eyes
I have to look away now,
I only want to use my last breath to give forgiveness

Wanting to wipe the tears from your eyes
I reached out my hand stained in red

(Full Version)

The words that we exchanged only once
Have already been frozen in place,
Broken into pieces

Because it’s impossible for us
I will keep these feelings locked inside my heart
Because I can’t reach you,
I can only chase after the wind for eternity
Because I can’t have you,
I’m unable to shake off the sadness in my eyes
I have to look away now,
I only want to use my last breath to give forgiveness

Wanting to wipe the tears from your eyes
I reached out my hand stained in red

I rowed into the silent darkness,
Through the large waves of fate
Cutting through the path of the tempest

I’m aware of this foolish pride of mine
But I just can’t let it go
I’m not afraid of the wind, lightning, or even death

Under the pale moonlight,
It would have been better not to have heard your reply,
I will choose to say goodbye, keeping it deep inside my heart
Swallowing everything

If it’s impossible for us
Then I will let go of these feelings in the dark of night
If I can’t reach you
Then I will turn my back on the morning that won’t come
If I can’t have you
Please pray so that I’m able to find my happiness

I will close my eyes now
I wish to only use my last breath to forgive

If I could get my hands on the dark flower that could kill these feelings
I would be able to protect you
From this sin that I hold in my arms

Because it’s impossible for us
I will keep these feelings locked inside my heart
Because I can’t reach you,
I can only chase after the wind for eternity
Because I can’t have you,
I’m unable to shake off the sadness in my eyes
I have to look away now,
I only want to use my last breath to give forgiveness

The stars are far away
I’ve already been swallowed by the darkness
So please see me off with a smile

Wanting to wipe the tears from your eyes
I reached out my hand stained in red

My voice simply fades away
I can’t see the light anymore

did he just…?!!! omg nooooo, I wasn’t ready for that. I’m not crying, you’re crying. This song is so beautiful, and yet it’s so sad…why do you do this to me? 😭😭😭 These are the lyrics for the version in the game, I’ll be updating it when we get the full version~ I really hope we get a full version soon of ALL the bsts songs 🙃

Rindou and Ginsei might be my top 2 characters, but Akira’s vocals are my favorite from bsts. His voice is just so damn sexy and I can’t be the only one that thinks that, right? 😳😳😳 Speaking about Akira’s vocals, I remember thinking to myself that the vocals from the song BLACKSTAR were sexy. You should have seen my face when I realized it was Akira lol because guess what? My dumb ass didn’t make the connection until waaay after because at the time Akira wasn’t even in my radar lol but it was hard not to fall in love with him when I first saw him in the game. I fell for his vocals, visuals and personality. We’re meant to be? 😂

  1. Wahhh thank you for translating this beautiful song ♡ It’s based of the opera “A Masked Ball” and yes, the main character dies at the end, which is why the song ends like that 😦
