(I KNOW kienai
Ai nado nai?
...OH namida mo
I NEED YOU SO awannai) [!!]

"Mei ai" mienai [!!]
Mada shinjite KISS
MAY I HOLD YOU NOW?
(Should show me the truth...)

Dou iu FAKE ka
Utagai hajimeta
DO YOU LOVE ME NOW?
(You're the only one...)

Dakishimeta ude no naka
Wazuka na itami mo
Uso demo hibiki au
Kankaku dake ga...

I KNOW kienai
Ai nado nai?
...OH namida mo
I NEED YOU SO owannai

DON'T YOU KNOW WHY?
Itsukara darou
Kagayaki mo lie

I DON'T WANNA CRY
Yume o mite WHY?
I CAN'T SAY "I LOVE YOU"

YOU'RE SO FAR AWAY
...OH samayou
Moetsukiru made...

"Mei ai" tokenai
Demo sagasu NO WAY
MAY I FEEL YOUR HEART?
(I believe in you...)

Kou iu omoi
Kotoba ni dekita nara...
CALL YOU ANYWAY
(I'm gonna hold you tight...)

Mayonaka ni ochite yuku
GARASU (Glass) no kakera ga
Ukaberu anata dake
Kono mune ni ima...

Ai ga mienai
Kizuna wa NIGHTS
...OH karamaru
I MISS YOU SO owannai

DON'T YOU LET ME GO...
Mitsukeru darou
Kagayaki mo LIE

I DON'T WANNA CRY
Akogarete WHY?
I CAN'T SAY "I LOVE YOU"

Dakishimeta ude no naka
Wazuka na itami mo
Uso demo hibiki au
Kankaku dake ga...

I KNOW kienai
Ai nado nai?
...OH namida mo
I NEED YOU SO awannai

DON'T YOU KNOW WHY?
Itsukara darou
Kagayaki mo LIE

I DON'T WANNA CRY
Yume o mite WHY?
I CAN'T SAY "I LOVE YOU"

YOU'RE SO FAR AWAY
...OH samayou
Moetsukiru made...

I DON'T WANNA CRY
Yume o mite WHY?
I CAN'T SAY "I LOVE YOU"

YOU'RE SO FAR AWAY
...OH samayou

(I know there's no love
That won't die...
Oh, even my tears...
[I need you so --] ...are wrong.) [!!]

"Love Illusion" -- I can't see it, [!!]
Yet I still believe in that kiss...
May I hold you now?
(Should show me the truth...)

What kind of fake is this?
I'm beginning to have my doubts...
Do you love me now?
(You're the only one...)

When you hold me in your arms,
Every little wound,
And even the lies echo around --
All we can do is feel...

I know there's no love
That won't die...
Oh, even my tears --
I need you so -- aren't over.

Don't you know why?
When did even
Our sparkle become a lie?

I don't wanna cry...
I'll wander, why?
I can't say "I love you"...

You're so far away --
Oh -- in a dream,
Until it burns out...

"Love Illusion" -- I can't solve it,
But I'm looking for a way...
May I feel your heart?
(I believe in you...)

If only I could
Put my love into words...
I'll call you anyway...
(I'm gonna hold you tight...)

In the shards of glass
That come falling down at midnight,
I see you, only you,
In my heart now.

We can't see love,
But the bond, the nights --
Oh -- that joins the two of us...
[I miss you so --] ...will never end.

Don't you let me go...
We're sure to find it.
But even our sparkle is a lie.

I don't wanna cry...
I'm longing for you, why?
I can't say "I love you"...

When you hold me in your arms,
Every little wound,
And even the lies echo around --
All we can do is feel...

I know there's no love
That won't die...
Oh, even my tears...
[I need you so --] ...are wrong.

Don't you know why?
When did even
Our sparkle become a lie?

I don't wanna cry...
I'll wander, why?
I can't say "I love you"...

You're so far away --
Oh -- in a dream,
Until it burns out...

I don't wanna cry...
I'll wander, why?
I can't say "I love you"...

You're so far away --
Oh -- in a dream,
Until it burns out...
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[!!] The title, "MEI AI" is a pun. In katakana (メイ アイ), it means "May I". And in kanji (迷 愛), it means "love illusion" (mei [迷] = illusion, ai [愛] = love). All 3 writings (katakana, kanji, AND English) are used in the song. =)

     Also, I apologize for the randomness of this song. (xD) But as Kiwi Musume said, "It's just there as a 'la la la, we've got English in our song, look how cool it is!'-thing." The music is still pretty cool, though!! And we're all allowed to have a "this is kinda stupid, but I still love it!"-song. (like *cough* some Morning Musume songs *cough*)



[1] Throughout the chorus, the background voices say various English words. Usually, the words are part of the previous verse (ex: "[I say...] I can't say I love you...").

     Since there are so many background voices in the chorus -- and it's kinda hard understanding all of them -- I left them out of the lyrics. You should be able to pick out most of it yourself, though. ^_~
