"Ice Cream Syndrome" (アイスクリームシンドローム) is the ending theme to the fourth Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl movie, The Illusionary Conqueror, Zorro'ark.
TranslationThe goal of the following translation is to present the meaning of the song in a competent, coherent way. It is not meant to be an English version of the song that can be sung along with the melody.
We have a muted relationship, we can even tell each other anything
We've been together for a long time, but nothing's really changed.
The mood you took the trouble to create is played off and brought to an end
I can't say it directly, but I can't use parentheses, either.
The sun is shining brightly, my T-shirt is covered in sweat
It's like I'm all damp, and I won't ever get dry.
I bought a familiar comic in the convenience store I ducked into
If you were here with me, would we be laughing?
We've already been acting for a number of years, cast in the role of "best friend"
That sense of distance is nice, but saying your true feelings is hard.
You say it's easy to talk to me, but that's just your lover's talk
I'll keep it in my mind to avoid being found out.
I want to be the only smiling face reflected in your eyes
But for some reason, my image can't stick with you, right?
If I peeked through the camera lens
I notice that you're farther away than I imagined
Someday, you'll disappear with someone
If you look up, you'll see a jet plane splitting the blue sky in two.
Summer is flying toward the far away sky
The season has already passed.
We awkwardly stand in the shimmering heat
You're the only one not distorted by this fuzzy world.
A syndrome that goes by the name "friendship," a never-ending maze without an exit
I can't step forward because even making a move is scary.
The ice cream I was going to has melted into a sticky mess
Destiny can't wait.
Now, I want to meet you.
How about I try luring you out with an unusually serious voice?
If I take you away like that
I'll use the momentum to hold you in my arms and might be able to share my feelings.
Ah~, if I look through the camera lens
It'd be great if you were close enough for our hands to touch
The amount our happiness increases will never go down
The moment I'm with you, we seem to shine.
