*Special Thanks: To my friends on Lang-8, and AmonDerevex on Youtube! The former helped me correct errors in the translation, and the latter was the first to post Romanized lyrics for this song (which I corrected and inserted in this post for viewers convenience.) Thanks, everyone!

*Translators notes:
The title of this song involves an interesting Japanese pun! I wasnt able to capture it in the translation, but Ill explain it here:
Title of the song: 恋距離遠愛 (ren-kyori-en-ai)
Word its based on: 遠距離恋愛 (en-kyori-ren-ai). Literally long distance relationship.
The title of the song takes the first and second-to-last kanji in long distance relationship and switches them. Its interesting because the pronunciation of the word hardly changes: ren and en just switch.

"とか言ってみます" was hard to translate. I put, "oh, but that's silly to say." More literally, it's: I'll try to say something like that." In either case, she's admitting that, though she wants to stop time, it's such a silly idea she thinks it's not worth saying. According to a friend on Lang-8, it's a funny way for her to avoid being assertive. (Keep in mind they're using polite speech throughout the video. They're lovers, but they're being a bit mild and indirect, which is interesting.)
