Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Nagai aida matasete gomen 
Mata kyuu ni shigoto ga haitta 
Itsumo issho ni irarenakute 
Sabishii omoi wo saseta ne 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I'm sorry for making you wait such a long time.
Work came up suddenly again.
Always being unable to be together
I know I've made you feel lonely. 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Aenai toki juwaki kara kikoeru 
Kimi no koe ga kasureteru 
Hissashiburi ni atta toki no 
Kimi no egao ga mune wo saratte iku 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
At the times when we can't meet
your voice cracks over the telephone.
The smile on your face that time when we met after so long
Tugs at my chest.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Ki zuita no anata ga konna ni mune no naka ni iru koto 
Aishiteru masaka ne sonna koto ienai 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I've realized that you are deep within my heart.
"I love you"-- I can't imagine myself saying those words!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Anata no sono kotoba dake wo shinjite 
Kyou made matte ita watashi 
Egao dake wa wasurenai youni 
Anata no soba ni itai kara 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Trusting only in that thing you said
I've been waiting until today.
I pray I won't forget how to smile,
Because I want to be with you

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Waratteru anata no soba de wa sunao ni nareru no 
Aishiteru demo masaka ne sonna koto ienai 
Ki zuita no anata ga konna ni mune no naka ni iru koto 
Aishiteru masaka ne sonna koto ienai 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Because when I am with you, laughing, I can open up.
"I love you"-- even so, I can't imagine saying those words aloud!
I've realized that you are deep within my heart.
"I love you"-- I just can't say it!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Waratteru anata no soba dewa sunao ni nareru no 
Aishiteru demo masaka ne sonna koto ienai 
Ki zuita no anata ga konna ni mune no naka ni iru koto 
Aishiteru masaka ne sonna koto ienai

Line 8: "Sarau" means "take" as in "drag". i was described to me once as the kind of verb kidnappers do when they steal someone away
Line 10: "Masaka" I have translated at "can't imagine"
Line 13: "Pray" is my own insertion, for clarity; wish and hope would work fine too
Line 15: "Sunao" I have translated as "open up" as opposed to "be honest"; another straightforward translation is "be frank", but I thought that left too much room for interpretation (and doesn't sound very pop=songish either ;)
Also, based on a remark by a Japanese friend, I have put "warratteru" or "laughing" so that it can be inferred that both people are laughing together (at least to me, the grammer of the Japanese original seems to imply that only "kimi" is laughing).
