So, I'm doing a translation class this semester, and I've been in love with "Sayonara Rolling Star" by Aya Hirayama. I was telling @Roxas-UrBoxas that the lyrics in the Katamari series are actually significant to the game.

I present to you a translation to prove my point.
P.S. If I got this emotional every time I made a katamari and had it turned into a star, I'd go nuts. :) I can't figure out if this song is about letting go of a katamari or like a subtle metaphor for the Prince's relationship with the King.
P.P.S. For anyone who actually cares about translation, this song makes a lot of plays on the word "round".

___________________________________________
I don't know where we'll be rolling,
but we were happy.
This disappointed feeling
wears me down.
A clump of bad feelings.
Why?
At this point,
do I feel I can't advance?
Isn't it strange?

GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU ARE MY ROLLING STAR.
Let's continue with a stronger rotation
GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU ARE MY ROLLING STAR.
Let's make a beautiful circle.

The excited feelings disappear
in a moment
like a skyrocket.
Like woven ball
becoming unraveled,
This feeling becomes smaller.
How long will you be here?
Our joined hands separate bit by bit.

GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU ARE MY ROLLING STAR.
Becoming bigger piece by piece.
GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU ARE MY ROLLING STAR.
Rolling in a harmonious way.

GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU ARE MY ROLLING STAR.
Even though goodbyes are painful
GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU ARE MY ROLLING STAR.
Let's face forward and keep on living.

It's so lonely.
At this gate,
We wave our hands
And meet with a smile.
I can't stand this.
In front of you.
I turn to look back
From behind
I see a tear.

GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU ARE MY ROLLING STAR.
While I make this small circle
GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU ARE MY ROLLING STAR.
You gave me a big circle of support.

GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU ARE MY ROLLING STAR.
I loved you the most.
GOOD TO SEE YOU. I won't forget you
Ever

GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU ARE MY ROLLING STAR.
Is this really okay?
It's okay, right?
Where were we again....
