Off she flies

起飛了!
Off she flies

Off I fly, 起飛了!

你在遠處臨風守望
沉默無語
有多久?
我看不見你
卻聽見風的歌
在你的衣裳響起
於是我隨風起飛了!

起飛了
Off she flies
Off she flies
No more shackles of life in her mind
Feels free to fly
Feels free to fly
Seeing nothing with her eyes
Off she flies
Off she flies
In the peaceful, harmonious sky.

啟航了
Off they go
Off they go
Together with the scarecrow
And the crow
Across the globe
Spreading amazing stories untold
Off they go
Off they go
Waving to friends in the boat below
