ハルニレが紡ぐ小往(こみち)に
迷いしは時のまにまに
さよなら、と手を振る君が
遠く遠く かすんでく
やがて心の奧に閉じ迂めてしまうの?
ふと君が、つぶやく

harunire ga tsumugu komichi ni
mayoi shi wa toki no mani mani
sayonara, to te o furu kimi ga
tooku tooku kasundeku
yagate kokoro no oku ni toki komete shimau no?
futo kimi ga, tsubuyaku

In a lane spun together by elms,
I wander at the mercy of time.
You wave goodbye,
And you grow blurry in the distance.
Will you eventually be sealed inside my heart?
Suddenly, you murmur.

ゆらゆらり 想い出は
幼い日々のままで
いられずに きえてゆく
追いかけた二人の幻

yura yurari omoide wa
osanai hibi no mama de
irarezu ni kiete yuku
oikaketa futari no maboroshi

My flickering memories
remain as they were in my childhood.
I chased after an illusion of the two of us.
Unable to exist, it starts to vanish.

「大丈夫、忘れはしない」
ほほえんだ君よいずこに
時はただ同じ步幅で
君と僕を 離してく
ゆらゆらり屆かずに
懷かしさだけ募る
夢見たり、戀したり
それだけでよかった 僕らは...

“daijoubu, wasure wa shinai”
hohoenda kimi yo izuko ni
toki wa tada onaji hohaba de
kimi to boku o hanashiteku
yura yurari todokazu ni
natsukashisa dake tsunoru
yume mitari, koi shitari
sore dake de yokatta bokura wa…

“It’s fine. I won’t forget.”
O you, who smiled so—where have you gone?
Time progresses at the same pace,
Separating you and I.
Flickering, unable to reach its destination,
Only my nostalgia grows stronger.
I dream and fall in love.
Just that was enough. And then, we—

ゆらゆらり 想い出は
幼い日々のままで
いられずに きえてゆく
追いかけた二人の幻

yura yurari omoide wa
osanai hibi no mama de
irarezu ni kiete yuku
oikaketa futari no maboroshi

My flickering memories
remain as they were in my childhood.
I chased after an illusion of the two of us.
Unable to exist, it starts to vanish.

    Thank you for translating, wish you a good day ^^ (my English is not so good, if possible, hope you can tell me a little more about the meaning of the story in the song from your point of view …..)

      Thank you (^_^) I think one possibility is that this song is about someone who has lost the one they love, whether it’s through death or growing distant after spending time apart (Time progresses at the same pace, / Separating you and I.).

      The speaker might be looking back on the time they spent together and wishing they could be with their beloved again…
