Apparently the lyrics to this song weren’t included in the album’s original release, so this translation is brought to you by a transcription put together in 2015. Many thanks to the Japanese NicoNico community, Nii Chii, Eiki, and Halja, who all contributed to the final product!

I suppose you could say this about a lot of Shibayan’s arrangements, but this one is really quirky. I tried to convey the fragmented nature of the lyrics and the song’s quirkiness as a whole in my translation [I also chose to set pretty much the whole thing in the present tense for the same reason]. Of course, I need to stress that this is based on a transcription – please let me know if you have any corrections or suggestions 🙂 It would be cool if the translation was also a community effort, like the transcription.

語り繋ぐ 二つの影
忘れて開く 黒毛の人
砂粒の雨 舞い散る夢
黒髪の蜜 滴り

katari tsunagu futatsu no kage
wasurete hiraku kuroge no hito
sunatsubu no ame mai chiru yume
kurokami no mitsu shitatari

The two shadows spin their tale.
Forgetting, I uncover the black-haired one.
The grains of sand rain down in this dream
And the black-haired one’s nectar… drips down.

花と踊る 浮かび続く
九つの空 夕闇の雨
拙い指と 白いうなじ
まだ続く夢 繋いだ

hana to odoru ukabi tsudzuku
kokonotsu no sora yuuyami no ame
tsutanai yubi to shiroi unaji
mada tsudzuku yume tsunaida

I dance with the flowers, and continue to float.
Evening rain falls from the September sky.
My clumsy fingers, and the white nape of your neck…
The dream continues. We’re fastened together.

夜道踊る (ミョン)
五つの影 (ミョン)
泡沫の夢 (ミョン)
空を流しめて
冷たい雨 (ミョン)
アジサイの前 (ミョン)
夢で見た あの子とすれ違う

yomichi odoru (myon)
itsutsu no kage (myon)
utakata no yume (myon)
sora wo nagashimete
tsumetai ame (myon)
ajisai no mae (myon)
yume de mita ano ko to sure chigau

The five shadows (Myon!)
Dance in the street at night (Myon!)
During this transient dream. (Myon!)
Flowing through the sky…
Cold rain falls (Myon!)
Before the hydrangeas. (Myon!)
I pass by the girl I saw in my dream.

語り繋ぐ 二つのペン
忘れて開く 夢の帳
盃伝い 落ちる滴
ひと夏のように ふ夏の

katari tsunagu futatsu no pen
wasurete hiraku yume no tobari
sakazuki tsutai ochiru shizuku
hitonatsu no you ni funatsu no

The two pens spin their tale.
Forgetting, I open the dream’s curtains.
The drops trace down the saké cup.
My second summer’s love is like the first. (1)

夢見踊る 絡みつく時
白髪落ちる 水の心地
拙い指は 道をなぞり
まだ続く夢 しるした

yume mi odoru karamitsuku toki
shirokami ochiru mizu no kokochi
tsutanai yubi wa michi wo nazori
mada tsudzuku yume shirushita

I dance in a dream, with time twined ‘round me.
My white hair falls, and I feel the water.
My clumsy fingers trace along the path.
The dream continues. They left their mark.

花と踊る 浮かび続く
五つの夜明け 白く濁る
拙い指で 円を描く
夢だ また夢 繋いで

hana to odoru ukabi tsudzuku
itsutsu no yoake shiroku nigoru
tsutanai yubi de en wo egaku
yume da mata yume tsunaide

I dance with the flowers, and continue to float.
The fifth daybreak is clouded white.
With my clumsy fingers, I trace a circle.
It’s a dream. I’m linked once more to a dream.

語り繋ぐ 二つの影
忘れて開く 黒毛の人
砂粒の雨 舞い散る夢
降り踊るまで 繋いだ

katari tsunagu futatsu no kage
wasurete hiraku kuroge no hito
sunatsubu no ame mai chiru yume
furi odoru made tsunaida

The two shadows spin their tale.
Forgetting, I uncover the black-haired one.
The grains of sand rain down in this dream.
Until we dance down, we’re tied together…

夜道踊る (ミョン)
五つの影 (ミョン)
泡沫の夢 (ミョン)
どこか消えていく
冷たい雨 (ミョン)
アジサイの前 (ミョン)
夢で見た あの子はもういない

yomichi odoru (myon)
itsutsu no kage (myon)
utakata no yume (myon)
doko ka kiete iku
tsumetai ame (myon)
ajisai no mae (myon)
yume de mita ano ko wa mou inai

The five shadows (Myon!)
Dance in the street at night (Myon!)
During this transient dream. (Myon!)
They disappeared somewhere…
Cold rain falls (Myon!)
Before the hydrangeas. (Myon!)
The girl I saw in my dream isn’t here anymore.

(1) It’s likely that ひと夏 [‘hitonatsu’ – One summer] is a shortened form of ひと夏の恋 [‘hitonatsu no koi’ – One summer’s love].
