Print Lyrics


Kon'ya koso wa katadzukeyou
Arekara heya wa ano mama de
Mado o akete kaze ni ataru
Hinyari fuyu no kehai

Hitori no kurashi hajimatte
Umaku ikanai
Todana no ue ni aru
Osara ni te ga todokazu ni
Kuyashikute mata naku

Tomodachi ga kite nonde sawaide
Sukoshi no aida kigahareru
Sayonara saemo iezu ni owatta keredo
Demo shiawase deshita

1176-jikan anata ga inaku natte kara [!!][1]
Kugiritsuita kanji ga suru
Sukoshi wa waraeru hazu

Kuruma ni kii o sashite mita dokidoki da ne
Tsugi no natsu made ni wa
Ano umi e to tadoritsuku
Ganbaru yo mitete ne

"Ashiteiru" to kotoba ni dashite
Motto KISU (Kiss) sureba yokatta ka na
Unmei nante kami-sama no kimagure da ne
Mou modorenai kedo

Shibomi kaketeru BIICHIBOORU (Beachball) o
Nanimo iwazu ni dakishimeta
Wazuka dakeredo anata no saigo no iki ga
Mada nokotteru

Kono hatsuyuki ga shiroku tsumoreba
Yagate atarashii asa ga kuru
Tanoshi katta yo anata to sugoseta kisetsu
Tada shiawase deshita


Tonight I'll finally tidy up my room;
It's the same way it was then.
I open the window and feel the wind;
It's chilly, a sign that winter's coming.

Now I'm living alone,
And it's not going well.
I can't reach the dishes
On top of the cupboard;
I'm so frustrated that I cry again.

My friends come around, we drink and have fun,
And for a while I feel better.
I didn't even get to say goodbye when it ended,
But I was happy.

It's been 1,176 hours since you went away -- [!!][1]
I feel like I've got some closure now.
I should be able to smile a little.

I tried putting my key in the car, I'm a little nervous --
I'll get to that beach
By next summer.
I'll do my best, you watch.

If only I'd told you that I loved you,
And kissed you.
Fate really is at the mercy of God's whims,
Though I can't turn back time.

The beach ball is starting to go flat --
I hugged it wordlessly.
Your last breaths remain in it,
Albeit just a few of them.

When the first snow covers the ground in white,
A new morning will finally come.
I enjoyed the season I spent with you;
I was just so happy.
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[!!] Van pronounces "1176" in Japanese, as "Issen-hyaku-nanajuu-to-roku-jikan".

[1] Thought I'd share this: 1176 hours is equal to 49 days.
