Blue Bird by Ikimono Gakari

"Blue Bird" is the third opening song for the anime series Naruto Shippuuden from the Japanese rock band Ikimono Gakari. This song, I believe,is dedicated to Sasuke from Naruto. The line "You say if you could fly, you would never come back" tells us of Sasuke's obsession for revenge against Itachi. "You aimed for that blue, blue sky" could signify Sasuke's thirst for power. The lyrics and translation are provided by Anime Lyrics. The official music video below featuring Ikimono gakari is uploaded by Arraroche in Youtube.

Habata itara modoranai to ittte
Mezashita no wa aoi aoi ano sora

"Kanashimi" wa mada oboerarezu
"Setsunasa" wa ima tsukami hajimeta
Anata e to daku kono kanjou mo
Ima "kotoba" ni kawatte iku

Michi naru sekai no yume kara mezamete
kono hane wo hiroge tobitatsu

Habata itara modoranai to itte
Mezashita no wa shiroi shiroi ano kumo
Tsukinuketara mitsukaru to shitte
Furikiru hodo aoi aoi ano sora
aoi aoi ano sora
aoi aoi ano sora

Aisou sukita you na oto de
Sabireta furui mado wa kowareta
Miakita kago wa hora sutete iku
Furikaeru koto wa mou nai

Takanaru kodou ni kokyuu wo azukete
Kono mado wo kette tobitatsu

Kakedashitara te ni dekiru to ittte
Izanau no wa tooi tooi ano koe
Mabushi sugita anata no te mo nigitte
Motomeru hodo aoi aoi ano sora

Adlib

Ochite iku to wakatte ita
Soredemo hikari wo oi tsudzukete iku yo

Habata itara modoranai to ittte
Sagashita no wa shiroi shiroi ano kumo
Tsukinuketara mitsukaru to shitte
Furikiru hodo aoi aoi ano sora
Aoi aoi ano sora
aoi aoi ano sora

English Translation:

Blue Bird
Ikimono Gakari

You say if you could fly, you would never come back
You aimed for that blue, blue sky

You've yet to remember "sadness"
Just now began to grasp "pain"
Even the feelings I held onto for you
Are just now changing into words

As you awaken from the dream of an unknown world
Spread your wings and take off

You say if you could fly, you would never come back
You aimed for those white, white clouds
If you break through, you know you'll find it
So try until you break free to that blue, blue sky
That blue, blue sky
That blue, blue sky

With a sound like all civility was gone
The rusted, old window broke
Look, you're so sick of looking at that cage that you're throwing it away
Without ever looking back again

That throbbing beat takes your breath away
And you kick open that window and take off

You said if you could run, you would obtain it
You're tempted by that distant, distant voice
It grasps your far too dazzling hand
Until you pursue that blue, blue sky

Adlib

I understand that you are falling
But still, continue to follow the light

You say if you could fly, you would never come back
You searched for those white, white clouds
If you break through, you know you'll find it
So try until you break free to that blue, blue sky
That blue, blue sky
That blue, blue sky
