飛翔(はばた)いたら 戻らないと言って
目指したのは 蒼い 蒼い あの空

"悲しみ"はまだ覚えられず "切なさ" は今つかみはじめた
あなたへと抱く この感情も 今 "言葉" に変わっていく

未知なる世界の 遊迷(ゆめ)から目覚めて
この羽根を広げ 飛び立つ

飛翔(はばた)いたら 戻らないと言って
目指したのは 白い 白い あの雲
突き抜けたら みつかると知って
振り切るほど 蒼い 蒼い あの空
蒼い 蒼い あの空
蒼い 蒼い あの空

mezashita no wa aoi aoi ano sora

"kanashimi" wa mada oboerarezu "setsunasa" wa ima tsukami hajimeta
anata he to idaku kono kanjou mo ima "kotoba" ni kawatteku

michi naru sekai no yume kara mezamete
kono hane wo hiroge tobidatsu

habataitara modorenai to itte
mezashita no wa aoi aoi ano sora
tsukinuretara mitsukaru to shitte
furikiru hodo aoi aoi ano sora
aoi aoi ano sora
aoi aoi ano sora

English Translation

The English translation comes from Narutopedia.

You say if you could fly,
You'd never come back down
You only have eyes for
That blue, blue sky

You've yet to learn what sadness is
And are now just grasping what pain is like
Even the feelings I have for you
Must be expressed in words

As you awake from a dream into an unknown world
Spread your wings and take flight!

You say if you could fly, you’d never come back down
You only have eyes for that blue, blue sky
You know if you can just make it through, you’ll find what you seek
So keep trying to break free to that blue, blue sky
To that blue, blue sky
To that blue, blue sky
