--Van--
Omoeba michi ni mayoi
Tohou ni kureteta ano koro
Me no mae no tenohira
Nigirishimete itanda

Itsushika deai ga deai o yobi
Tomadoi ni yuri okosarete
Bukiyou na boku no
Tomatteta tokei ga ugokidashita

Shiawase no kagi wa itsumo
Kono kokoro ni kakusareteru
Demo jibun de mitsukeru notte
Yuu yori zutto muzukashikute
Dakara moushi baraku
Soba ni...

Tatoeba koronda toki
Hizakozou o surimuitemo
Nannimo iwanaide
Machi tsudzukete kureta

Te o kasu koto wa tayasui keredo
Ima no anata ni wa iranai
Yasashisa wa keshite
Tada ama yakasu koto dake janai yo

Shiawase ni naritai nara
Sono morosa ni makenaide to
Kikoerunda tsutaeterunda
Kuchibiru kande tachiagare to
Sore ni kotaetakute
Zutto...

--Ryo--
Mirai no chizu o motte
Saitan kyori o mezase [1]
Kitto yukeru
Dare ga jama o shiyou to
Kabe ni habamareyou to
Ima susumunda

[Guitar solo]

--Van--
Shiawase o tsukamitorunda
Nani yori sore ga arigatou

Shiawase o sagasute ni wa
Itsumo soko ni kizuna ga aru
Tatoe me ni mienakutatte
Kokoro no te ga hanasanai yo
Hitoridachi shitatte
Tatoe hanaretatte
Zutto...


--Van--
Now that I think about it,
When I was lost and didn't know what to do,
I gripped a hand
In front of me.

Before I knew it, one encounter led to another,
Which shook me out of my confusion.
I was clumsy, and the hands of my clock had stopped,
But this started them moving again.

The key to happiness
Is always hidden in your heart,
But finding it on your own
Is much easier said than done.
So stay by my side
A little longer...

For example, even when I fell
And skinned my knee,
You kept waiting for me
Without saying a word.

It's easy to lend a hand,
But you don't need that now.
Spoiling people
Isn't the only type of kindness.

"If you want to be happy
Then don't let your fragility win" --
I can hear it, the words have reached me.
"Grit your teeth and get back up" --
I want to respond to that,
Always...

--Ryo--
Hold a map of the future,
And look for the shortest way. [1]
You'll get there,
No matter who gets in your way.
Even if there's a wall blocking you,
Go now.

[Guitar solo]

--Van--
I'll grab happiness;
That's the thing I'm most grateful for.

The hands that search for happiness
Will always be linked.
Even if you can't see it,
That hand in your heart won't let go.
Even if you're standing alone,
Even if we're apart,
Always...
Oasis Heart3's Note:
[1] The music interfers with Ryo's singing...and makes it sound like he's saying "saitan [ki]kyori" (which is wrong).
