濃紺に映える月
綺麗だね

noukon ni haeru tsuki
kirei da ne

The moon, shining in the dark blue sky,
Is so pretty…

道に迷った時も
あったけれど
離れたくない

michi ni mayotta toki mo
atta keredo
hanaretakunai

Though there were times
When we went astray,
I don’t want to leave you…

いつだって揺れる水面を見た
夢のなか目覚めたくない だから

itsu datte yureru minamo wo mita
yume no naka mezametakunai dakara

I could always see the rippling surface of the lake.
I don’t want to wake up from this dream, so…

耳に響いた 言葉(ありがとう)
風が運んだ 絆(でもごめん)
森を包んだ気持ち(愛してる)
あなたに贈る笑顔

mimi ni hibiita kotoba (arigatou)
kaze ga hakonda kizuna (demo gomen)
mori wo tsutsunda kimochi (aishiteru)
anata ni okuru egao

Words echoed in my ears. (Thank you…)
The wind carried our bonds. (But I’m sorry.)
Feelings covered the forest. (I love you…)
I smile at you…

    Hello. Thank you for your translation.

    The caption of the PV says there is a longer version of this song.
    I found the album at melonbooks but couldn’t check the length.

    > 森を包んだ気持ち
    > Feelings were covered by the forest.

    If we read it literally, what covers is “Feelings” not “the forest”.
    It might mean the strong feelings changes the whole forest to the place where they can meet again and give smiles. I went too spiritual haha.
