Why do birds suddenly appear
Just like me, they long to be

Every time you walk by?
Close to you
On the day that you were born
And decided to create a dream come true

Follow you all around
Close to you
On the day that you were born
And decided to create a dream come true

Follow you all around
Close to you
Just like me, they long to be

Wa, close to you
La, close to you
