Requested by Eiki.
I didn’t know this song before, but so far i really like it! although i am not sure whether i understand its meaning…
Please note that the stanzas connect to each other.

*その名前を呼んでくれよ: actually “scream out that name (for me)”. Doesn’t sound good in my opinion.
*輝いてた気がしてた: “it had been shining” -> i don’t know what “it” refers to in this case, maybe some undefined object sparkling in the dark?
* 気づけば: “if you noticed”-> i think it refers to the shining (see above)
*地べた這いつくばって: also “i crawl on my knees”, “i sink to the ground”
*日は暮れてしまう: means that the day will soon be over, so it’s too late for the speaker to start again
*過去に置いていくよ: “leave it in the past”

足あとの目指す先が変わる前に
hitorizutsu
ashiato no mezasu saki ga kawaru mae ni

one by one
before the destination of the footsteps changes,

もう一度
もう一度だけ
その名前を呼んでくれよ
mou ichido
mou ichido dake
sono namae wo yonde kure yo

once more
just once more
let me hear you call that name

スポットライトの下で
輝いてた気がしてた
supottoraito no shita de
kagayaiteta ki ga shiteta

on the other side of the spotlight
i had a feeling it had been shining

気づけば幕は閉じてて
夢の中で歌うピエロだったのかな
kidzukeba maku wa tojitete
yume no naka de utau piero datta no kana

so if you noticed, close the curtains
i wonder if it was a clown singing in my dream

もう昔みたいには戻れない
嫌でも足跡は続いてくのさ
mou mukashi mitai ni wa modorenai
iya demo ashiato wa tsudzuiteku no sa

i can’t go back just like the old times anymore
and although i hate it, the footsteps will continue 

一つずつ
紡いできた
その唄をほら燃やして
hitotsuzutsu
tsumuide kita
sono uta wo hora moyashite

one by one
it started to spin
so burn that song down to ashes

終わりだよ
終わりにしよう
全部過去に置いていくよ
owari da yo
owari ni shiyou
zenbu kako ni oite iku yo

it’s over now
let’s put an end to this
let’s leave it all behind

目が覚めると何もなくて
荒野の真ん中一人
megasameru to nani mo nakute
kouya no man’naka hitori

when i wake up, there’ll be nothing
i’m alone in the midst of this wasteland

地べた這いつくばって
進もうとしたって
すぐに日は暮れてしまうのさ
jibeta haitsukubatte
susumou to shitatte
sugu ni hi wa kurete shimau no sa

i fell down on my knees
we tried to move on, but
in an instant, this day would grow dark

立ち上がろうとしたって
ほらすぐつまづいて
やり直しの繰り返しばかり
tachiagarou to shitatte
hora sugu tsumazuite
yarinaoshi no kurikaeshi bakari

we tried to stand up again
but look, we stumble and fall
it’s only a repetition of beginning anew

一つずつ
紡いできた
その唄をほら燃やして
hitotsuzutsu
tsumuide kita
sono uta wo hora moyashite

one by one
it started to spin
so burn that song down to ashes

終わりだよ
終わりにしよう
owari da yo
owari ni shiyou

it’s over now
let’s put an end to this

変わらなく
続いていくものが
もしもあるならば
kawaranaku
tsudzuite iku mono ga
moshimo aru naraba

if perhaps
unchanging, ever continuing
things exist, then …

もう一度
もう一度だけ
ここで唄を歌わせてよ
mou ichido
mou ichido dake
koko de uta wo utawasete yo

once more
just once more
let me sing my song right here

もう一度
もう一度だけ
この名前を呼んでくれよ
mou ichido
mou ichido dake
kono namae wo yonde kure yo

once more
just once more
let me hear you call my name

…くれよ
…kure yo

…call my name
