Under Your Radar: Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!


I wanna fall in love…

The dream will continue
We made a promise, but, deep inside, I’m still scared it might all disappear
Even though I want to believe you’ll always be there

Being in love with each other isn’t happiness all by itself
Even if I pretend that it’s all that matters,
You just laugh

And you always give me strength,
But if one simple word can change your whole world,
Then two loves will start to progress,
That’s the truth

Every time I got lost and asked myself what I should do,
You always led me to the answer

Even if I can’t work up the courage to do it,
I want to tell you everything
(All that my heart feels, with a sparkling voice)
Let it out, and let it ring loud!
