Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
tooi kono kyori maiban no you ni
aitakutemo aenai atama no dokoka ni aru
sukoshi ZUREteru no kana kono hoshizora saemo
anata mo onaji you ni omotte kureteru no?

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Just as with every night with this long distance
I want to see you but I can't, you're somewhere in my mind
Is even this starry night mistaken a little bit, I wonder?
Are you thinking the same way that I am?

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
KURAGE, nagareboshi mitsukeraretara
anata no namae wo omoi ukaberu yo
donna IYA na toko shitte iru no ni
anata no koto konna ni suki da yo

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If I were to find jellyfish, or shooting stars,
your name would come floating up to me
despite what bad things I know of you;
this is the way that I love you.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"koishiteiru" sonna fuu ni yobu no kana
wasureyou to sureba suru hodo hoshiku naru

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I wonder if this can even be called "being in love"
if I'm starting to want to forget you.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
sonna ni anata to atashi wa chigau no?
doushite mo futari ni wa narenai

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Does that not make what you and I are wrong?
No matter how much we want this we can't be together.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
KURAGE, nagareboshi mitsukerarezu ni
anata no kotoba mo wasurechai sou da yo
tatta hitotsu shinjite iru tsuyosa ga areba
kurushikunaku suki de irareru no kana

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If I don't find jellyfish, or shooting stars,
then it's as if I'll forget even your words
If I have just one strength that I believe in
I wonder if I can love you without feeling pain.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
KURAGE, nagareboshi mitsukeraretara
anata no namae wo omoi ukaberu yo
donna IYA na toko shitte iru no ni
anata no koto konna ni suki da yo


Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If I were to find jellyfish, or shooting stars,
your name would come floating up to me
despite what bad things I know of you;
this is the way that I love you.

I decided to translate ZUREteru, which normally means to be off, or deviating, as mistaken. It doesn't make sense that the night might be "off" more than it would be that something seems off, which would make the night, and the way it feels, mistaken.
