Print Lyrics


Yukikau hito utsumuku kage
Nagareru toki ni mi o makasete miru
Shinjitsu sae miushinatte
Kokoro no sukima namida ga umeta

Tomedonaku afureru omoi wa kakushite
Sou tsuyogaru dakede
Te o nobasu koto mo kowakute

Anata ga iru dakede
Kizutsuitemo kurushikutemo
Ima dakara sunao ni nareta nara
Tobikonde yuku yo sono mune ni

The passers-by, the downcast shadows...
I tried just entrusting myself to the flow of time.
I'd even lost sight of the truth,
Filling the cracks of my heart with tears.

I hide this endlessly overflowing love,
And just pretend to be tough,
Afraid of even reaching out...

But because of you,
Even if I get hurt, even if I'm in pain,
I'm able to be honest with myself now.
So I'll jump right into your arms.
Oasis Heart3's Note:
[!!] Two words that are similar to "manacles" are "shackles" and "handcuffs".

(Feb-4-2009) Now that avex has released the official lyrics, the translation has been checked against the official kanji lyrics. And I'm happy to report that these lyrics were already 100% accurate. =)
