This song is paired with Unfulfilled Promise.

Asaki Yumemishi is the forelast line from the Iroha Poem:

iro wa nioedo
chirinuru o
wa ga yo dare zo
tsune naran
ui no okuyama
kyou koete
asaki yumemiji
yoi mo sezu

Here is the Wikipedia article on the poem as well as a translation of it.
いろは歌を知らない日本の方、「あさきゆめみし」の意味について日本語の記事はこちらです。


Once you speak out “this is eternity”, it will become a lie.
So… say it, over and over again.
“I will be with you for eternity.”

You and I are under the never setting sun and in the never ending night.
Let us make a promise that will remain unfulfilled…

-Stack


あさきゆめみし 紺青の宵風が流れ
さみしやさみし 人の世は邯鄲の刹那よ
asaki yumemishi konjou no yoikaze ga nagare
samishi ya samishi hito no yo wa kantan no setsuna yo

A superficial dream – The prussian blue night wind flows by.
I am lonely, so lonely. The human world is but a vain instant.

出会い別れ 人の縁は
寄せては返す波のよう
ときに穏やかに 暗く激しく
何もかもを飲み込んでいく
時は残酷に終わりを告げ
私だけを置き去りにして
暮れない太陽 明けない夜
誰を愛してもひとり
deai wakare hito no enishi wa
yosete wa kaesu nami no you
toki ni odayaka ni kuraku hageshiku
nanimokamo o nomikonde iku
toki wa zankoku ni owari o tsuge
watashi dake o okisari ni shite
kurenai taiyou akenai yoru
dare o aishite mo hitori

Humans are destined to meet and part,
Just like restless waves.
They may calmly, gloomy, furiously
Swallow everything down occasionally.
Yet time cruelly puts an end to that,
Whilst I am the only one that remains.
The sun does not set, the night does not dawn,
No matter if I love someone.

ねえ、何か誓って
ずっと果たされない約束をして―。
nee, nanika chikatte
zutto hatasarenai yakusoku o shite…

Hey, vow something.
Make a promise that will remain unfulfilled…

あさきゆめみし 紺青の宵風が流れ
さみしやさみし 人の世は邯鄲の刹那よ
asaki yumemishi konjou no yoikaze ga nagare
samishi ya samishi hito no yo wa kantan no setsuna yo

A superficial dream – The prussian blue night wind flows by.
I am lonely, so lonely. The human world is but a vain instant.

「永遠だ」なんて口にしたら
その瞬間嘘になる
だから言って、何度だって
永遠にそばにいると
“eien da” nante kuchi ni shitara
sono shunkan uso ni naru
da kara itte, nando datte
eien ni soba ni iru to

Once you speak out: “This is eternity”,
It will become a lie.
So say it, over and over again:
“I will be with you for eternity.”

ねえ、ここで誓って
ずっと果たされない約束を今―。
nee, koko de chikatte
zutto hatasarenai yakusoku o ima…

Hey, vow it right here.
A promise that will remain unfulfilled, now…

あさきゆめみし 灼熱の鳳  翔けてゆく
恋しや恋し あなたはだれを想ふ?
あさきゆめみし 炎抱く甘い宵闇
さみしやさみし 人の世は邯鄲の刹那よ
asaki yumemishi shakunetsu no ootori kakete yuku
koishi ya koishi anata wa dare o omou?
asaki yumemishi honou idaku amai yoiyami
samishi ya samishi hito no yo wa kantan no setsuna yo

A superficial dream – A blazing phoenix soars up.
Oh how I yearn for you. Who are you thinking of?
A superficial dream – The sweet twilight embraces the flames.
I am lonely, so lonely. The human world is but a vain instant.

誰もが消えて 星も死に絶えた暗闇
あなたと私 そして静寂だけが
あさきゆめみし 永遠が真実の誓いなら
さみしやさみし 二人は交われないままで
daremo ga kiete hoshi mo shi ni taeta kurayami
anata to watashi soshite seijaku dake ga
asaki yumemishi eien ga shinjitsu no chikai nara
samishi ya samishi futari wa majiwarenai mama de

Everyone perishes. Even the stars ceased and made way for darkness.
Left are only you and me, and furthermore the silence.
A superficial dream – If eternity is the one true vow,
I am lonely, so lonely. None of us can keep others company.
