Ooh I wanna take you 
Up here where the air is clear
Where clouds & sunlight paint the sky
That is where I want to fly

Ooh let me take you 
Beyond everything that we know
Up here it's beautiful
Leave behind every sorrow
Fly away

And we'll be flying in heaven
We'll float through the sky
And we'll be flying in heaven
Love lifts us high
And we are flying to heaven 
To find peace of mind
And we are flying to heaven
We're leaving the world behind

If you ever wanna dream
Come & I'll take you with me
The sky, it has no boundaries
When love gives you wings

Away, far above the crystal clouds
Soaring tumbling through midair
We'll see the troubles melt away
We'll always want to be there
In heaven.

Song Production Information

Sota Fujimori

For me, the image of heaven was the basis for this song. I listened around and imagined transformers in the sky flying above me, which gave me the idea for this.

SYNTHESIZED was released recently, so there is a long version of this song. If you have time, please listen to it.

The movie for the song is great, it has truly amazing images. The video and overall performance are great.

It's now time to forget all your troubles, and let's go travel up to the sky!!!

Video Production Information

Taiyo Yamamoto

During the production of the video, I imagined flying swiftly, then soaring.
For Fly Above, I imagined a little knob flying. I felt that it was ideal for this video.
For the lyrics in the middle of the video, try singing with it if you feel lucky, or watch over someone's shoulder.
