TAFU (Tough) na onnanoko ni
Nandaka akogarete
Tsuyogatte mitemo
Nakimushi na no wa kawannakute
Muri shichatteru ima
What Do I Do? Ugh...
Sunao ni naru tte
Ittemo dou sureba ii?

HIIRU (Heel) de keriageru
ASUFARUTO (Asphalt) kara hibiiteku
Keikai na ashioto mo
KUURU (Cool) dakedo kyuukutsu de
Hashiridasu koto sae mo  Ohh
Dekizu oinukareteku
Bucchaketara

Hito to kurabechatte
Jishin nakushitari shite
Jaa doushitai no? tte
Saguttemo wakaranakute!

Leave Me Alone, I Say
Dareka watashi no tsuyogari
Minu ite kureta naraba
PURAIDO (Pride) ga jama shiteru
Honto wa nakitai
Nara naichattemo ii noni ne

Madogiwa no KOOHII (Coffee) tatta
Nishuukan dake yameta
Cigarette kemuri to [1]
Issho ni tameiki tsuiteru
GARASU (Glass) ni utsuru jibun
Are You Happy Now?
Kidzuki-hajimeteru no yo
Kawaritai!

Otokonoko nara
Tsuppatteru no mo ii kedo
Onnanoko wa nanka
Chigau ki ga shichau kara
Futo misetari suru sugao mo  Ohh
Suteki dattari suru mono, ne?
Sou deshou?

Nando kurikaeshitemo
Kitto nayamu mono de
Sou, daremo ga minna
Sonna fuu ni ikite iku no

I Believe Myself
Omoikiri HIIRU (Heel) nugisutete
Hadashi de aruite ikou
Furikaeru hito no me mo
Ki ni shinaide ii
Watashi wa watashi dakara

What's The Pride For You?
Sono koe o kikasete
What's The Pride For Me?
Kono mune ni hibiku youni
(Woah...)

Tsuyogaru yowamushi mo
Nandaka itooshikute
Nanimokamo subete ni
Mune hareru wake janai no!

Leave Me Alone, I Said
Sashidasareta te sae hanenokete
Tachiagarou to shiteta
PURAIDO (Pride) tte tsurai toki
Nakitai kokoro o
Kakusu tate janai noni

I Believe Myself
Kore dake wa yuzurenai mono o
Kitto sagashite miseru
Machigatta tte omottara
Mata kono basho made
Modotte kureba ii yo

(I believe myself,)
How' bout U?
(I believe myself,)
So I go my own way...

(U believe yourself,)
And now show me what your everything is.
(Believing myself)
Is my pride.


I looked up
To tough girls...
I tried to act strong,
But I couldn't change the fact I was a crybaby.
I'm trying too hard;
What do I do? Ugh...
I say I'm going to be straightforward,
But what should I do?

My heels
Kick up the asphalt...
The rhythmic sound of footsteps --
Cool, but constrained...
(Ooh...) Not even able to
Run, I'm being left behind,
But if I were able to talk openly...

I compare myself to others,
And lose confidence...
Then what do I want to do?
I'm searching but don't know!

Leave me alone, I say --
If someone were able
To see through my bluff
My pride gets in the way.
If I really want to cry,
Then I should just cry.

Coffee by the window;
I only quit smoking for 2 weeks... [1]
I exhale the smoke
With a sigh.
My reflection in the glass;
Are you happy now?
I'm starting to realize
That I want to change!

It's okay
For guys to strut around,
But I think it's different for girls.
That sudden revelation
Of a face without makeup
(Ohh...) Can be wonderful,
Don't you think?

No matter how many times it happens,
We still worry.
Yeah,
That's how everyone lives...

I believe myself --
I'll take off my heels
And walk barefoot.
I won't worry about
The eyes of those who look back,
Because I am who I am.

What's the pride for you?
Let me hear that voice...
What's the pride for you?
...Like it echoes in this heart.
(Woah...)

I love when cowards
Try to be strong --
It's not like you
Can stand proud all the time!

Leave me alone, I said --
I even refused help
And tried to get up myself.
But pride isn't a shield
To hide your heart
When you want to cry...

I believe myself --
I will find something,
That one thing I can't do without.
If I think I'm wrong,
I'll just come
To this place once more.

(I believe myself,)
How' bout U?
(I believe myself,)
So I go my own way...

(U believe yourself,)
And now show me what your everything is.
(Believing myself)
Is my pride.
Oasis Heart3's Note:
[1] In the romaji, "Cigarette" actually goes with the previous line. But I tried to match the verses to YUKA's singing, so that's why "cigarette" dropped to the next line.
