As I got up early and today's wind was smoothing my hair
Things about you vaguely come up to my mind. It's like a softly floating cloud, isn't it?
The sky gets higher and higher, and the air gets more chilly.
What are you feeling? I was wondering alone.

If we had a little more courage
It might seem to come true
But we think "it will come true, whether we try or not"
Like parallel lines, our distance never changing.
We have hesitated to think of our most precious feelings, haven't we?

Wishing to fix myself that divided in two.
Along with a comfortable breeze, when I was able to sleep so long today
I'm humming lalala lalala lalala...
On a chilly night the sky gets higher and higher
What are you feeling? I was wondering alone.

If we had a little more courage
It might seem to come true.
But we think "it will come true, whether we try or not"
Like parallel lines, our distance never changing.
We have hesitated to think of our most precious feelings, haven't we?

Wishing to fix myself that divided in two.
Unless we have a little more courage
A lot of things won't come true
But we think "it will come true, whether we try or not"
And just like parallel lines, our distance would never change
I've made up my mind to not tell a lie to my most precious feelings

Even thought we took the long way
This our true wish

Translator's note:

平行線(heikousen) means parallel lines.
and in japan we usually say "両者は平行線で終わった(ryousha wa heikousen de owatta),"
which means "The two sides (of the discussion) remained as far apart as ever."
But we don't use this idiom much anymore.
