非公式の英訳/Unofficial translation

we were born
then we drifted apart.
And though I became such a transient human…

My memories of you
will never
waste away
Even now that you have assumed a divine body.

Hear me!
If my voice will reach into the distance,
To the other side of our separate worlds,
Then you will hear it someday.

Even now, there is a song I cannot forget.
I pray that it will tie us together.
I hope that, even if I lose everything and nothing remains,
I will never lose this song.

I wonder how many paths you have walked down…
Yet still, you continue to walk.
Even if I cannot be by your side,
I want my song to reach you someday.

The song of the wind
Carries my prayers into the distance.
It travels far away, forever
Like in our childhood days, when we once sang somewhere.

Please, live
In that distant world.
Remain as you should be.

In that distant world
According to our single broken promise.

I thought that we were completely separate
And I thought you were too far away to recover.
Still, I hope that the hand I reach out to you
Will help you during your journey…

Sometimes in my dreams
I see us walking together once more.
I know that it’s impossible, so I sing,
Placing my feelings in my song at least.

The song of the wind.
I pray once more
That someday, somewhere
You will also be singing the same song…

So I live
In that distant world
Holding my unconveyable feelings close to me.

I live
In that distant world
According to that promise I can never keep.

Do not cry
For it is right for you to be there.

Do not grieve
For you can be saved by being there.

Do not ask,
For you being there alone is enough for me.

Do not hate me
For I prayed for you to be there.

So live
In that distant world
Alter your shadow, which can never touch mine.

In that distant world.
That single broken promise remains so.

—I sing my song again, softly…

Cycle around
And return here.
Which of us
Steps upon the other’s shadow?

Together we sing
A nameless song.
We send it out upon the wind
So it may reach into the distance.
