Print Lyrics


Doushite ikite yuku no 
Kotae wa mitsukattari kietari de 
Ima mo sagashitsuzuketeru yo
Yarinokoshita koto mo mada aru yo

Mogakinagara yume minagara
Michi o erabi arukitsuzukete yuku no

IESU [Yes] to No de mayottara
Ima o mechakucha datte ikite mireba ii
Soshite ashita no sora ga nani iro ni hikaru ka
Kimi to miagete tashikamete mitai no

IESU [Yes] to No de mayotte iru BANITASU [Vanitas]
Ato sukoshi dake naite mireba ii
Itsuka kimi ga iya da to yuu made wa zutto
Tsunaida te to te zettai hanasanai

Ataerareta jikan de
Doredake no koto o nashitogeru ka ga
Hito no kachi o kimeru nante sa
Okashi na RUURU [Rule] ni shitagatte iru yo ne

Gizensha demo okubyou demo
Ichido kurai dareka no tame ni ikitai

IESU [Yes] to No de mayottara
Ima o mou sukoshi dake ikite mireba ii
Soshite ashita no sora ga nani iro ni hikaru ka
Kimi to miagete tashikamete mitai no

Futashika na sekai de
Shinjirareru mono o mitsuketai dake

IESU [Yes] to No de mayottara
Ima o mechakucha datte ikite mireba ii
Soshite ashita no sora ga nani iro ni hikaru ka
Kimi to miagete tashikamete mitai no

IESU [Yes] to No de mayotte iru BANITASU [Vanitas]
Ato sukoshi dake naite mireba ii
Itsuka kimi ga iya da to yuu made wa zutto
Tsunaida te to te zettai hanasanai

IESU [Yes] to No de mayotte iru BANITASU [Vanitas]
(I will live for you, just for you...) [2]
Ato sukoshi dake naite mireba ii
(And I will never let you go, yeah...) [2]
Ashita no sora ga nani iro no? 
(I promise you...) [2]
Sou sa mechakucha datte ikite yukeba ii


Why are we alive?
We find the answer and then it disappears.
But we're still searching;
There are still things we need to do.

Struggling, dreaming --
We choose our paths and keep walking.

When you're hesitating between yes and no,
Just try living this moment to the fullest,
Then I want to look up with you and see
What colors shine in tomorrow's sky.

Hesitating between yes and no: vanitas.
Just try crying a little longer.
Until the day comes whe you say no,
I'll never let go of your hand.

We follow these bizarre rules,
Like judging someone's worth
By how much they can accomplish
In this little time we're given.

Even if I'm a hypocrite or a fool,
I just want to live for someone else for once.

When you're hesitating between yes and no,
Just try living in the moment a little longer,
Then I want to look up with you and see
What colors shine in tomorrow's sky.

In this world of uncertainty,
I just want to find something I can believe in.

When you're hesitating between yes and no,
Just try living this moment to the fullest,
Then I want to look up with you and see
What colors shine in tomorrow's sky.

Hesitating between yes and no: vanitas.
Just try crying a little longer.
Until the day comes whe you say no,
I'll never let go of your hand.

Hesitating between yes and no: vanitas.
(I will live for you, just for you...) [2]
Just try crying a little longer.
(And I will never let you go, yeah...) [2]
What color is tomorrow's sky? 
(I promise you...) [2]
Yes, it's okay to just live life to the fullest.
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[!!] As of right now, there are NO OFFICIAL LYRICS for this song. So I asked Megchan to type it by ear (and translate it), which she did. ^^

[1] Vanitas is an artstyle that shows the dark side of life and how materialistic things don't last. This is probably the reason why the "PAIN KILLER" album cover has a "rotten" (or rather, half-eaten) apple on it: that's something the vanitas artstyle would capture. (^^) Since YUKA is a painter in her spare time, she's probably known about this artstyle for a while.

[2] The parts in (parenthesis) are sung in the background.
