Nemurenai mama
Asayake no oto
Hikizuri okosu karada

Boku no rekishi wa
Arasoi no hibi
Yasumu hima nado nakute

Ikutsumo yume yabureta sekai no hate
Yuiitsu sukui nano wa kimi to aeta koto

Kimi to boku no kizuna wa
Kaze ni kieta ashiato
Dare no yaiba mo kirisake wa shinai
Tachihadakaru genjitsu
Shinjiaeru shinjitsu
Donna mirai mo kirihirakeru kara
Mada mada mada boku wa boku ni idomu yo

Izayoi no tsuki
Toki no negai wa
Mitasareru hi ga kuru no?

Yamiyo ni sashita
Hikari hitosuji
Yuraganu kokoro hitotsu

Ikutsumo chitte itta sekai no hate
Fukutsu no Shura no gotoku kimi o mamoru tame [1]

Kimi ga boku ni senaka o
Azukete kureru koto ga
Konna boku o muteki ni saserunda
Aragaenai sadame mo
Kakegaenai inochi mo
Subete o ima nara uketomeru kara
Mada mada mada boku wa kimi ni chikau yo

Kimi to boku no kizuna wa
Kaze ni kieta ashiato
Dare no yaiba mo kirisake wa shinai
Tachihadakaru genjitsu
Shinjiaeru shinjitsu
Donna mirai mo kirihirakeru kara

Kimi ga boku ni senaka o
Azukete kureru koto ga
Konna boku o muteki ni saserunda
Aragaenai sadame mo
Kakegaenai inochi mo
Subete o ima nara uketomeru kara
Mada mada mada boku wa boku ni idomu yo


Unable to sleep,
I hear the sounds of the morning
And drag myself out of bed.

My history
Was days of battle,
With no time to rest.

At the end of that world full of broken dreams,
I met you, my one salvation.

The bond between you and me
Is like footprints blown away by the wind:
No sword can cut it apart,
The reality looming large before us,
The truth we believe in.
I can open up any future --
I'll keep on, keep on, keep on challenging myself.

The night after the full moon,
Will the wishes of these times
Ever be fulfilled?

A single strand of light
Shining through the darkness of the night,
One unwavering love.

To protect you, like a tireless Asura, [1]
At the end of this world where so much has been lost.

If you would
Give me your back,
It would make me invincible.
Our inevitable fate,
Our irreplaceable lives,
I can accept anything now --
I'll keep on, keep on, keep on promising you.

The bond between you and me
Is like footprints blown away by the wind:
No sword can cut it apart.
The reality looming large before us,
The truth we believe in,
I can open up any future...

If you would
Give me your back,
It would make me invincible.
Our inevitable fate,
Our irreplaceable lives,
I can accept anything now --
I'll keep on, keep on, keep on promising you.
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[1] This song was used in the "Sengoku Basara" video game series. One of Van's solo songs, "Brave", was also used in this game series. :)

[2] Asura is a low-ranking Buddhist diety, which basically represents the violence and anger in humanity. So it's kinda fitting for warriors -- like the characters in Sengoku Basara -- to worship Asura. To learn more, click here.
