Print Lyrics


Anata wa mukashi iimashita [1]
Mezamereba makuramoto ni wa
Suteki na PUREZENTO (Present) ga
Oite aru yo to
Kami o nade nagara

Aikawarazu sono senaka wa
Chiisaku tayori nakute
Dakedo tanoshii hanashi nara
Waraiaeteita

Sore na no ni hito wa doushite
Onaji youna ayamachi
Ato nando kurikaeshitara
Koukai dekiru no

Omoidashiteiru
Houmutta hazu no
Itsuka no yoru

Anata wa mukashi iimashita
Mezamereba makuramoto ni wa
Suteki na PUREZENTO (Present) ga
Oite aru yo to
Kami o nade nagara

Watashi wa kitai ni hazumu mune
Kakaenagara mo nemuri ni tsukimashita
Yagate otozureru yoake o
Kokoromachi ni shite

Mezameta watashi no makuramoto
Ooki na kumo no nuigurumi imashita
Tonari iru hazu no anata no
Sugata to hikikae ni

Anata wa mukashi iimashita
Mezamereba makuramoto ni wa
Suteki na PUREZENTO (Present) ga
Oite aru yo to
Kami o nade nagara

You once said, long ago, [1]
While stroking my hair,
"When you wake up, there'll be
A nice present waiting for you
By your pillow."

You weren't always
There for me,
But we could laugh together
At funny stories...

But how can people regret
Mistakes that they
Keep making
Over and over again?

I remember it now...
That night I thought
I had buried...

You once said, long ago,
While stroking my hair,
"When you wake up, there'll be
A nice present waiting for you
By your pillow."

I lay sleeping with my arms
Crossed around my chest,
Looking forward
To the morning.

When I woke up,
I found by my pillow
A large teddy bear...
In place of you.

You once said, long ago,
While stroking my hair,
"When you wake up, there'll be
A nice present waiting for you
By your pillow."
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[!!] Since over 90% of this song is piano...can you guess what Shingo Kobayashi mostly does? That's right, he plays the piano/keyboard. =)

[1] Ayumi IS saying "anata wa mukashi"...but she puts more emphasis on "wa", making it sound like "anata wa--a mukashi". This is probably done to match the emphasis of "iimashita".
