Print Lyrics


December 1985,
When this long journey just started.
God never let me give it up,
Said, "You are the one to be alive".
One day I met a girl, "Philia".
She just smiled and said,
"It's time to stand up to it"...

It's such a crazy world...it's the real life.
Desperately hopeless?
Then I will take your hand.
It's not always easy to overcome --
Feel it before thinking;
Hear the voice of "Philia".

She said, "Believe or not".
"Is that true or lie?"
You become distrustful,
But you can't deny no more.
You wish that no one ever betrays you.
And, screaming inside of your heart,
Then call her name, "Philia"...
You and me, and her name is, "Philia".

Woah...

Even if we got everything,
We're filled up with so much emptiness.
But, nobody takes it seriously:
You know what to do, by now.
Just a day like an ordinary day,
You hear the voice again:
"It's time to stand up to it"...

It's such a crazy world...it's the real life.
Desperately hopeless?
Then I will take your hand.
It's not always easy to overcome --
Feel it before thinking;
Hear the voice of "Philia".
You and me, and you know her, "Philia".

[Instrumental break]

Wake up, people... (Wake up, people...) [1]
Wake up, people... (Wake up, people...)
Hurry up and now... (Hurry up and now...)
Wake up, people... (Wake up, people...)

You and me, and Philia; you and me, and Philia;
You and me, and Philia; you and me, and Philia;
You and me, and Philia; yeah...
I know she is here...

It's such a crazy world...it's the real life.
Desperately hopeless?
Then I will take your hand.
It's not always easy to overcome --
Feel it before thinking;
Hear the voice of "Philia".

She said, "Believe or not".
"Is that true or lie?"
You become distrustful,
But you can't deny no more.
You wish that no one ever betrays you.
And, screaming inside of your heart,
Then call her name, "Philia"...
Now don't you see? It's part of you, "Philia".

Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[!!] You can read the original, Japanese lyrics here. You'll probably notice quite a few differences in both lyrics (ex: "it's a real life" vs. "it's the real life"). One major difference is that in the English version, "Philia" is the name of a girl in the song.

     Although...she might not be an actual girl. She might just be a metaphor or personification of YUKA's "love philia/obsession". ;)

[1] Everything from this point on was NOT written in the lyrics. So I had to type it by ear, and I might have made mistakes.
