Nante koto nai sasai na dekigoto ni
Mata boku wa obieteru
Sore o kakusou to shite wa
Tsuyogaru kuse hakki suru

Kimi wa tonari ni yorisoi
Wake no wakaranu koto o hanashiteru
Bukiyou ni demo nantoka
Hagemasou to shiteru

Kitto bokura kou shite
Yatteku'n darou

Gutto kao agete sukoshi waratte
Chotto sora toka aoidari shite
Hashiri-tsukarete aruitari toka shite
Sonna kanji de junbi wa ii kai?

Hitotsu zutsu sukoshi zutsu hora
Tashika ni ashiato o nokoshiteru
Sono subete ga hitotsu no
Michi to nari ima to naru

Kesshite ii koto bakari
Nanka janai keredo

Boku ni wa kimi ga hitsuyou mitai de
Kimi ni mo boku ga hitsuyou nara
Soko ni toku ni riyuu wa iranai mitai ne
Waruku nai ka mo ne konna mainichi

Gutto kao agete sukoshi waratte
Chotto sora toka aoidari shite
Hashiri-tsukarete aruitari toka shite
Sonna kanji de junbi wa ii kai?

Boku ni wa kimi ga hitsuyou mitai de
Kimi ni mo boku ga hitsuyou nara
Soko ni toku ni riyuu wa iranai mitai ne
Waruku nai ka mo ne konna mainichi

Again, I'm afraid of
Something small and insignificant.
In trying to hide that fear...
I'm showing my habit of feigning strength.

You come up next to me
And talk about nonsense...
You're trying, despite your
Clumsiness, to encourage me.

This must be how
It'll be for us...

Looking up and smiling slightly,
Gazing at the sky,
Tiring of running, we walk a little...
Just like that...are you ready?

One by one, little by little, see? --
We leave behind footprints.
They form one path...
They form now...

It can't be only
Good times ahead, but...

It seems like I need you --
And if you need me,
Then we don't really need a reason...
These days aren't bad at all, are they?

Looking up and smiling slightly,
Gazing at the sky,
Tiring of running, we walk a little...
Just like that... are you ready?

It seems like I need you --
And if you need me,
Then we don't really need a reason...
These days aren't bad at all, are they?
Oasis Heart3's Note:
[1] On the "RAINBOW" album, a hidden track (called "+") plays as soon as "independent" stops. Because the two songs are mixed so tightly, lots of people have called it "independent+" -- they'll translate BOTH songs inside ONE set of lyrics, and they'll even rip BOTH songs together as ONE MP3 file!!
