Lyrics (TV Size)

親友 (しんゆう) 最初 (さいしょ) からなれるわけじゃない
真剣 (しんけん) なバトルの (なか) でみつける
もうひとつの自分 (じぶん)

葛藤 (かっとう) からの覚醒 (かくせい)

とぎ () ましあうカード
運命 (うんめい) 相手 (あいて) (こころ) (うつ) (かがみ)
もしも<引き分け (タイ) >のままで

(たお) れたら (どろ) だらけで (たた) () おう

shinyū ni saisho kara nareru wake janai
Sore mo riaru
Shinken na batoru no naka de mitsukeru
mou hitotsu no jibun

kattō kara no kakusei ha
chansu no tān! tsukamu! dorō
dyueru! dyuaru-izumu

togi sumashi au kādo
unmei no aite ha kokoro, ustsusu kagami
moshimo <hikiwake> (tai) no mama de

taoretara doro-darake de tatae aou

It's not like we could have become best friends from the start
That's the reality
In the midst of a serious battle I find
Another me

This struggle-born awakening is
A chance turn! Grasp it! Draw
Duel! Dual-ism

Our cards sharpened by each other
A fated opponent is a heart-reflecting mirror
Even if while it's a tie

We should fall and become muddy, let's honour each other
