Lyrics from
Dear my friend
Sora wo mina yo, ima bokura wa
onaji sora wo miten da.
Tooku hanaretete mo
onaji sekai onaji sedai,
umi to sora no you ni bokutachi mo
doko ka tsunagatterareta nara
shin-ai naru kimi he (DIA MAI FURENDO)*
kono kumo wo tadotte ikeba
kimi no machi he tsudzuiteru no kana

Lyrics from
Dear my friend
Look at the sky, we are
looking at the same sky.
Even if we are far apart
it's the same world and the same generation.
Like the ocean and the sky, if we too
are connected to each other somewhere
to my dear friend (dear my friend)*
If I follow these clouds
maybe they'll end at your town.

Lyrics from
Say "hello"
kimi no koe wo oogoe de sora ni
sakende mitan da.
hontou wa aitakute (wara) demo,
yume de sae aenakute
ano tori no you ni oozora wo moshimo
jiyuu ni tobeta nara, donna ni
tada, boku ni wa hane ga nai keredo,
kawari ni kono te de
kimi wo dakishimerareru kara
sou tsuyoku, toritachi mo urayamu kurai ni.

Lyrics from
Say "hello"
I tried calling your name
in a loud voice up to the sky.
The truth is I'd like to see you (haha), but
I can't even meet up with you in my dreams
If, like those birds, I too
could fly freely in the big sky, oh how I would
But, I don't have wings, so
instead I can use these arms
to embrace you
yes, tightly, so that even the birds are jealous.

Lyrics from
kono kumo ni tsukamatte ireba
kimi no moto he hakonde kureru kana.
soshite mata itsuka aeta nara
kondo wa shikkari to te wo nigitte
mou, hagurenai you ni. ...
Like a bird, like a wind.

Lyrics from
Dear my friend
If I grab on to this cloud
maybe it'll take me to where you are
And if we meet again someday
this time I'll hold your hand tightly
so you don't stray anymore. ...
Like a bird, like a wind.

*Miyavi writes "to my dear friend" (shin-ai naru kimi he), but sings "dear my friend" hear, so I transliterated / translated both.

1. Where he writes "chikyuu" he sings "sekai."

2. Where he writes "tsubasa" he sings "hane."

3. It's technically "I can use these hands to embrace you, but that doesn't make much sense in English.
