Anata ni wa modoranai [1]
Anata ni wa kaeranai
Anata ni wa tayoranai
Anata wa mou inai

Tokidoki jibun ga wakaranaku naru
Ataerareru dake ja kurushii dake

Nando mo onaji ayamachi
Kurikaeshite shimau "10W40" [!!]
Imasara namida mo denai
Yakitsuita futari zaratsuita OIL [2]
Tomerarenai ONE WAY

Atashi ni wa modorenai [1]
Atashi ni wa kaerenai
Atashi ni wa tayoranai
Atashi wa mou inai

MAP o tadotte hashiritsudzuketa [3]
TANDEMU (Tandem) ja nakute RAIDO (Ride) shiteru [4]

Zutto chikaku ni isugite
Nakushite shimatta "10W40"
Dakara akiramete hoshii
Samekitta futari sabitsuita OIL [2]
Yukitomari no ONE WAY

Nando mo onaji ayamachi
Kurikaeshite shimau "10W40"
Imasara namida mo denai
Yakitsuita futari dorodoro no...

Zutto chikaku ni isugite
Nakushite shimatta "10W40"
Dakara akiramete hoshii
Samekitta futari sabitsuita OIL

Tomerarenai OWN WAY


I won't go back to you. [1]
I won't return to you.
I won't depend on you.
You're gone now.

Sometimes I can't understand myself;
It's just that only being given things is painful.

We make the same mistake over and over again,
And keep applying 10W40. [!!]
Even tears won't come now...
The two of us are branded; the oil is gritty... [2]
It can't be stopped; we're going one way.

You can't come back to me. [1]
You can't return to me.
You can't depend on me.
I'm gone now.

We kept on going, following the map; [3]
We ride, but not tandem. [4]

We were always too close,
And we used up all our 10W40.
That's why I want you to give up...
We've gone cold; the oil has gone rusty... [2]
We have nowhere left to go on this one way.

We make the same mistake over and over again,
And keep applying 10W40.
Even tears won't come now...
The two of us are branded, gunky oil...

We were always too close,
And we used up all our 10W40.
That's why I want you to give up...
We've gone cold; the oil has gone rusty...

You can't stop me; I'm going my own way.
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
NOTE: The majority of this translation is Kashiko's, but KS did a few lines. =)

[!!] "10W40" is a brand of motor oil. (You can learn more on this page.) I'm sure you know what oil is used for...and you understand its significance in this song, right? ;)

[1] When Van sings one verse, the other verse echoes in the background.^^

[2] and [3] Even though "OIL" and "MAP" are written in English, they're sung in Japanese (as "OIRU" and "MAPPU").

[4] "Tandem" is hard to explain (I don't even completely understand it. ^^;)...but according to Webster's Dictionary, it basically means "one after another" (or even "2 parts working together"). If you want a better definition, use another dictionary. Or get someone to explain it to you. xD
