LyricsEdit

JapaneseEdit

The pray has frown away
in their way…

暮れゆく空に 鳥のざわめき
旅ゆくものに 憂いはない

見果てぬ空に去り行く 還らぬ人よ…
儚い想いは 詩にのせた

見上げた空に 幾千の羽根
小さな祈りを乗せて 舞い上がれ

飛び立つ者よ、今誇らしく
小さな祈りを乗せて
高らかに舞い上がれ

RomajiEdit

The prey has flown away
in their way...

Kure yuku sora ni tori no zawameki
Tabi yuku mono ni urei wa nai

Mihatenu sora ni sari yuku kaeranu hito yo...
Hakanai omoi wa uta ni no seta.

Miageta sora ni ikusen no hane
Chiisana inori wo nosete maiagare.

Tobitatsu mono yo, ima hokorashiku
Chiisana inori wo nosete
takaraka ni maiagare.

EnglishEdit

The prey has flown away
in their way...

In a darkening sky, the sound of a bird
In an ongoing journey, no sorrow.

A man who will head into the endless sky, never to return...
A fleeting thought that was put in a song.

In the sky we looked unto, a thousand wings.
Say a tiny prayer and soar away.

You who leap to action, be proud now.
Say a tiny prayer
and soar away to the sound.
