Here is an English translation of the song:
I forgot all memories but you
I lost my last moment of existence in your sorrow
I’m so silent tonight, alley smells like your odor
I remember you with the aroma of lilac, night, and home
Your remembrance is like a lullaby, words are like stars
But you’re not here and the sky of my poem is moonless
Lilacs are crying in alleys, eyes go blind of crying
I survive with the aroma of remembering you until you return home
