"Mou dame da" to subete sutete nigete kita
Sono kotae ya hontou no koto sagasanaide

Aoi tori wa oozora o
Hora jiyuu ni toberu noni
Watashi wa hitori de semai kago no naka

Harisaketeku kono jounetsu o norikoete
Jibun rashiku irareru sube o oshiete yo
Ah

Itsudatte kizutsuku koto o osoreteru
Koko kara ja nani hitotsu datte umare ya shinai

Omou kedo tsutawaranai
Hoshii kedo iitakunai
Watashi wa hitori de semai kago no naka

Kono sekai ni tsubusaresou de
Kurushikute
Doushitatte sunao ni nanka nare ya shinakute [1]
Ah

Aoi tori wa oozora o
Hora jiyuu ni toberu noni
Watashi wa hitori de semai kago no naka

Kono sekai ni tsubusaresou de
Kurushikute
Doushitatte sunao ni nanka nare ya shinakute [1]

Harisaketeku kono jounetsu o norikoete
Jibun rashiku irareru sube o oshiete yo
Ah


I threw everything away, saying it was hopeless, and ran away:
Without looking for the answer or the truth.

Look -- even though
The blue birds fly freely in the great sky,
I'm alone in this small cage.

Tell me how to get through this passion that tears me apart,
And be myself...
Ah...

I'm always afraid of being hurt:
Nothing will happen like this.

I think something, but I can't get my message across.
I want something, but I don't want to say it.
I'm alone in this small cage.

It's so painful;
It's like I'm going to be crushed in this world.
No matter what I do, I can't be honest... [1]
Ah...

Look -- even though
The blue birds fly freely in the great sky,
I'm alone in this small cage.

It's so painful;
It's like I'm going to be crushed in this world.
No matter what I do, I can't be honest... [1]

Tell me how to get through this passion that tears me apart,
And be myself...
Ah...
Oasis Heart3's Note:
[1] Some people might think that Van is singing "shanakute" here (instead of "shinakute"). But she IS indeed saying "shinakute". (^^) "Shi" is sung very fast and it slurs with the rest of the syllables.
