小さな頃に見た 高く飛んでいくカイト
離さないよう ぎゅっと強く 握りしめていた糸
憧れた未来は 一番星の側に
そこから何が見えるのか ずっと知りたかった

母は言った「泣かないで」と
父は言った「逃げていい」と
その度にやまない夢と     空の青さを知っていく

風が吹けば 歌が流れる    口ずさもう 彼方へ向けて
君の夢よ 叶えと願う    溢れ出す ラル ラリ ラ

小さな頃に見た 大きな羽のカイト
思い出よりとても古く 小さい姿でいた
憧れた未来は いつもの右ポケットに
誰も知らない物語を 密かに忍ばせて

友は言った「忘れない」と
あなたは言った「愛してる」と
些細な傷に宿るもの
聞こえて来る どこからか

風が吹けば 歌が流れる    口ずさもう 彼方へ向けて
君の夢よ 叶えと願う    溢れ出す ラル ラリ ラ

嵐の中をかき分けていく小さなカイトよ
悲しみを越えてどこまでも行こう
そして帰ろう その糸の繋がった先まで

風が吹けば 歌が流れる     口ずさもう 彼方へ向けて
君の夢よ 叶えと願う     溢れ出す ラル ラリ ラ
ラル ラリ ラ
ラル ラリ ラ

Chiisana koro ni mita takaku tondeiku kaito
Hanasanai you gyutto tsuyoku nigirishimeteita ito
Akogareta mirai wa ichi ban boshi no soba ni
Soko kara nani ga mieru no ka zutto shiritakatta

Haha wa itta "Nakanai de" to
Chichi wa itta "Nigete ii" to
Sono tabi ni yamanai yume to sora no aosa o shitteiku

Kaze ga fukeba uta ga nagareru kuchizusamou kanata e mukete
Kimi no yume yo kanae to negau afuredasu ra ru ra ri ra

Chiisana koro ni mita ookina hane no kaito
Omoide yori totemo furuku chiisai sugata de ita
Akogareta mirai wa itsumo no migi poketto ni
Dare mo shiranai monogatari o hisoka ni shinobasete

Tomo wa itta "Wasurenai" to
Anata wa itta "Aishiteru" to
Sasai na kizu ni yadoru mono
Kikoetekuru dokokara ka

Kaze ga fukeba uta ga nagareru kuchizusamou kanata e mukete
Kimi no yume yo kanae to negau afuredasu ra ru ra ri ra

Arashi no naka o kakiwaketeiku chiisana kaito yo
Kanashimi o koete dokomade mo yukou
Soshite kaerou sono ito no tsunagatta saki made

Kaze ga fukeba uta ga nagareru kuchizusamou kanata e mukete
Kimi no yume yo kanae to negau afuredasu ra ru ra ri ra
Ra ru ra ri ra
Ra ru ra ri ra

When I was young     I saw a kite flying high
I held on to the string tightly so I wouldn't lose the kite
The future I yearned for     Next to the first star of the night
I always wanted to find out what I could see from up there

"Don't cry" said mother
"It's okay to run away" said father
Each time I remembered my grand dreams and that blue sky

The wind brings music with it     I'll turn to the other side and sing
I hope your dreams come true     Overflowing with la lu la li la

When I was young     I saw a kite with large feathers
It was much smaller and older than in my memory
I put the future I yearned for away,
Hiding the story no one knows in secret

"I won't forget you" said my friend
"I love you" you said
These slivers of pain don't fade
I can hear them, but where do they come from?

The wind brings music with it  I'll turn to the other side and sing
I hope your dreams come true  Overflowing with la lu la li la

The small kite fights its way through the storm
It overcomes sorrow, it can go anywhere
Back home, to where the string is tethered

The wind brings music with it     I'll turn to the other side and sing
I hope your dreams come true     Overflowing with la lu la li la
La lu la li la
La lu la li la
