Print Lyrics


You don't have to worry, worry
Mamotte agetai
Anata o kurushimeru
Subete no koto kara

Hajimete kotoba o kawashita hi no
Sono hitomi o wasurenaide
Ii kagen datta watashi no koto
Tsutsumu youni kagayaiteta

Tooi natsu iki o koroshi tonbo o totta
Mou ichido anna kimochi de [1]
Yume o tsukamaete ne

So, you don't have to worry, worry,
Mamotte agetai
Anata o kurushimeru
Subete no koto kara
'Cause I love you,
'Cause I love you.

Kono goro shizunde mieru keredo
Kocchi made BURUU (Blue) ni naru
Aenai toki ni mo anata no koto
Mune ni daite aruiteiru

Higure made dote ni suwari renge o anda [1]
Mou ichido anna kimochi de [1]
Yume o katachi ni shite

So, you don't have to worry, worry
Mamotte agetai
Hoka ni wa nani hitotsu
Dekinakutemo ii
'Cause I love you,
'Cause I love you.

So, you don't have to worry, worry
Mamotte agetai
Anata o kurushimeru
Subete no koto kara
'Cause I love you.

Mamotte agetai, ooh...


You don't have to worry, worry --
I want to protect you
From everything
That brings you pain.

Don't forget the way your eyes were
The day we talked for the first time:
They were shining in a way that enveloped me,
Who had been so half-hearted up until then.

That summer so long ago, we held our breath and caught dragonflies.
Catch your dreams the same way
With that same feeling. [1]

So, you don't have to worry, worry --
I want to protect you
From everything
That brings you pain.
'Cause I love you,
'Cause I love you.

Lately you've seemed down,
And that makes me blue too.
Even when we can't see each other,
I'm holding you to my heart as I walk.

We sat on the riverbank until nightfall, braiding reeds together. [1]
Shape your dreams like that
With that same feeling. [1]

So, you don't have to worry, worry --
I want to protect you;
I don't care
If I can't do anything else.
'Cause I love you,
'Cause I love you.

So, you don't have to worry, worry --
I want to protect you
From everything
That brings you pain.
'Cause I love you.

I want to protect you, ooh...
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[!!] Yumi Matsutoya's maiden name was Yumi Arai. She's referred to by both names, as well as her nickname "Yuming". =)

[1] "Anna" is a Japanese word here, not someone's name. "Dote" is also Japanese, and is pronounced "doh-tey".
