Get it in through the pocket that formed in between, and wait till it comes out

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Don't just pull it without a word, don't make it a clumsy butterfly
Thinking it's tied, but it's untied; thinking it's loosened, but it's tightened

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Kono aokute hiroi sekai ni  musuu ni  chirabatta naka kara
Betsubetsu ni futari eranda ito wo  otagai taguriyoseattanda

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
In this blue, wide world, among the millions scattered around
The two of us separately picked a thread and pulled it to ourselves

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Musubareta'n ja naku musundanda  futari de "Se-no" de hippattanda
Ookiku mo  chiisaku mo  narisuginai you ni  chikara wo kometanda

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The knot wasn't tied - we did it ourselves, and we both pulled it with a "one, two, three"
So that it doesn't get too large or too small, I gave it strength
