Perhaps this song is setting up an extended metaphor, with the speaker comparing their lover to the rain…


今日みたいな雨は時雨っていうんだ
昨日までの雨とは違うように見えた
あなたじゃなくても僕は僕なのかな

kyou mitai na ame wa shigure tte iu nda
kinou made no ame wa chigau you ni mieta
anata janakute mo boku wa boku na no ka na

When it rains like today, they call it ‘shigure.’ (1)
It seemed different to the rain we’ve had until now.
Am I me, rather than you?

あんね
名前は抜きであなたと好きでいて
僕ら名前なんてなくたって
ふたりっきりで呼び合うなら ねぇ だけ
僕ら名前なんてなくたって

anne
namae wa nuki de anata to suki de ite
bokura namae nante naku tatte
futarikkiri de yobiau nara nee dake
bokura namae nante naku tatte

Unname.
I like being nameless with you.
Even without names,
all we need to do is say ‘hey’ if we need to call to each other.
Even without names—

どれだって尊いさ 名付けた意味は
でも誰かの価値はあなたではないから
誰に呼ばれても雨は冷たいまま

dore datte tootoi sa nazuketa imi wa
demo dareka no kachi wa anata de wa nai kara
dare ni yobaretemo ame wa tsumetai mama

The reasons why we were given our names are all precious
but someone’s value isn’t you,
so no matter who calls, the rain remains cold.

あんね
名前は抜きであなたと好きでいて
僕ら名前なんてなくたって
ふたりっきりで呼び合うなら ねぇ だけ
僕ら名前なんてなくたって

anne
namae wa nuki de anata to suki de ite
bokura namae nante naku tatte
futarikkiri de yobiau nara nee dake
bokura namae nante naku tatte

Unname.
I like being nameless with you.
Even without names,
all we need to do is say ‘hey’ if we need to call to each other.
Even without names—

(1) 時雨 (shigure, literally ‘timely rain’) refers to rain that falls in late autumn or early winter. Dictionary entries also suggest an additional figurative meaning: shedding tears.
