白い羽根が舞い落ちる部屋の中で彼は絵を画く
眺めの良い窓は閉ざしたまま 鳥の絵を
部屋のすみには足をつながれた鳥が 必死に羽ばたき
彼はそれを哀しげに見つめては
彼女に想いをはせて

Will you please tell me the way to the sky
すぐそばに今存るのに
Will you please tell me the way to the sky
遠のいて行く とどかないもっと高く

(a strong will makes wings of...)
(I can't fly, without the sky)
…今が昼なのか夜なのかさえ解からない…

幾つもの夜を越えて ふいに彼は重い窓を開けた
太陽と風が部屋に広がり
彼を外へつれ去った

Will you please tell me the way to the sky
舞い上がる 風の中
Will you please tell me the way to the sky
閉ざしたまま
羽根は広がらず落ちて行く

It looks like white feathers
少しの歪みの後にすべてを知る 叶わぬ事を

Will you please tell me the way to the sky
すぐそばに存るのに
Will you please tell me the way to the sky
指先さえ ふれられない
Will you please tell me the way to the sky
あの鳥のように この地につながれている
Will you please tell me the way to the sky
ああ 空は何も変わらず そこにいた

He draws a picture in his room amongst the falling white feathers
He draws a picture of a bird, while his window with a good view remains closed
In the corner of the room, a bird with bound feet flaps its wings frantically
As he watches this in sorrow
He is reminded of her...

Will you please tell me the way to the sky
Even though I'm right next to it now
It's getting too far, too high for me to reach

...he doesn't even know if it's day or night anymore...

Many nights passed when suddenly he opened the window
The sun and wind streamed through
And took him away

Will you please tell me the way to the sky
Dancing and floating upwards in the wind
With closed wings,
He doesn't open his wings, and begins to fall

Once he came to
He understood it all
He understood it had not been real...

Will you please tell me the way to the sky
Even though I'm right next to it now
I can't even touch it with my fingertips
Like that bird, I'm tied to the ground
Ah, and the sky, unchanging, was there...
