Shunichi Miyamoto – Caged Bird lyrics

Takaku dono kurai tonde ittara
Haruka tooku no kimi ga mienaku naru no?

Hitomi soraseba raku ni naru no kamo shirenai
Demo itsumo dokoka de mitsumete itai

Wasureru koto nante deki wa shinai kara
Nasu sube mo naku sora o miageteru dake
Maru de kago no naka no chiisa na tori no you ni
Mado o sagashite ate mo naku samayotte iru

Ima sugu ni aitai kimi ga suki da kara
Kizutsuku koto ga kowakute nigetai kedo
Mienai shigarami ni tsubasa torawarete mo
Sore de mo kimi wa kanashii hodo taisetsu na hito

[English Translation]

How high do I fly
Before you, who are distant and far, become invisible?

If I avert my eyes, I might feel at ease
But I want to always gaze at you from somewhere

Because I can't forget you
At my wits' end, I'm only looking up at the sky
Exactly like a little bird inside a cage
I'm searching for a window and wandering aimlessly

I want to see you immediately, because I love you
I fear getting hurt and I want to run away, but...
Even if my wings are trapped by invisible shackles
Nevertheless, you're such a precious person to me that it's sad
