Review
What happens when you mix Monkey Majik, indie-pop, good English lyrics, and a touch of Japanese? You get my favourite track on the album "Thank You" called "fly." I'm especially a fan of the English verses before the first chorus. The lyrics are somewhat poetic and mimic indie-pop style lyrics. You might fool listeners into believing this song is a North American indie-pop song using the first quarter of the song. Of course, the song does have its flaws. I'm not a fan of the Japanese lyrics in this song. I wish the entire song was English since I enjoy the English parts the most.

The verdict: "fly" is an enjoyable authentic sounding indie-pop song from Monkey Majik. I highly recommend this song.
Lyrics
Here are the romaji lyrics for you to sing along with:
Leaving on that 7:30 train.
I don't know how far I'll go.
Round in circles just as long as I would tell you.
I am alone but we could be.

Tell me something I haven't heard before
except for when you shut me down.
Remember when we stayed up all night drinking whiskey.
I know that you've been waiting.
I'll see you on the other side.

Oh! We're better off alone.
I told you once before.
so don't knock on my door.
you'll see it if you will.
but I don't wanna know.
I'm feeling so resentful

Cuz' I wanna fly, Fly me up so high
Take me to the skies, I won't get by
itsu made mo kimi no koe ga boku no kokoro de hibiku
If you can't believe me, take me home

kimi no chiisana te wo semete ato sukoshi
tsuyoku nigiri-shimete-ita nara
yukkuri ashita wo matterareta no ni

namida no wake shitte-ita kedo
ima de wa mou oso-sugiru kara
sore wa sugi-yuku keshiki no you ni

Cuz' I wanna fly, Fly me up so high
Take me to the skies, I won't get by
itsu made mo kimi no koe wa boku no michi ni aru sa
If you can't believe me take me home

Everybody's talking always up and groovin'
come on up and join up with me yeah!
Always on and dancin' always on the move and.
come on everybody won't you come with me?

Cuz' I wanna fly, Fly me up so high
Take me to the skies, I won't get by
Everybody needs to go beyond the seas
If you can't believe me, take me home
If you can't believe me, take me home

Cuz' I wanna fly. I wanna fly.
Take me high.
Cuz' I wanna fly. I wanna fly.
Take me high!

Cuz' I wanna fly, fly me up so high
Take me to the skies, I won't get by
itsu made mo kimi no koe wa boku no michi ni aru sa
If you can't believe me take me home
