Print Lyrics


Boku-tachi wa ayamachi o okasu
Boku-tachi wa sugu ni tachidomaru
Sasai na koishi ni sae mo tsumadzuite

Dareka no kotoba o shinji
Dareka no te no naka ni iru
Saigo wa hitori na noni

Jibun ga kidzuiteiru yowasa
Jibun ni taererenai morosa
Mienai furi o shita mama ikite yuku

Doushiyou mo nai iradachi
Doko mo atenai tabidachi
Kurikaeshite

Nagai hashi hikikaesu yuuki mo nakute
Koboreteku ryoute kara taisetsu na mono

Maidashita konayuki wa tsumoru no deshou
Fuyu o taenuite yuku tsuyosa ga hoshii yo
Kimi no mune no katasumi ni nokoshita toge o
Yagate kuru haru made ni tokashite agetai

Boku-tachi wa ayamachi o okasu
Boku-tachi wa sugu ni tachidomaru
Subete o ugeireru hodo tsuyoku nai

Koori no kakera o atsume
Kokoro o sukima wa ima mo
Umetsukusenai mama

Hashaideta machi no chinmoku
Hatesenai futari no yakusoku
Furete shimaeba kieru yuki no you

Boku ga miushinatta mono
Kimi o miushinatta koto
Kidzukanakute

Hiiragi wa fuyu no otozure tsugeru hana
Boku-tachi o tada soko de mioroshiteiru

Nagai kodoku na yoru ni tsubusaresou
Mitasarenu genjitsu ga oshiyosete kuru yo
Kimi o mamorinukitai kono fuyu kara
Yagate tsuku akai mi o futari de matou

Maidashita konayuki wa tsumoru no deshou
Fuyu o taenuite yuku tsuyosa ga hoshii yo
Kimi no mune no katasumi ni nokoshita toge o
Yagate kuru haru made ni tokashite agetai


We make mistakes;
We stop right away;
Even a small stone could make us trip.

We believe people's words;
We let them own us;
Although, in the end, we're alone.

We spend our lives pretending not to notice
The weaknesses we know we have,
And the fragileness we can't bear.

Time and again,
We feel irritation we can't do anything about,
And go on random journeys.

Without even the courage to go back across that long bridge,
Important things spill out of our hands.

All this dancing snow will probably pile up;
I want the strength to endure this winter...
I want to melt the thorn that remains in a corner of your heart
By the time spring finally comes.

We make mistakes;
We stop right away;
We're not strong enough to accept everything.

We collect shards of ice,
Still unable to fill
The gap in our hearts.

The silence of a town once full of life;
Our promise that we couldn't keep;
When you touch it it disappears, like the snow.

I didn't notice --
The things I'd lost sight of...
The fact that I'd lost sight of you...

Holly is a flower that announces the beginning of winter --
It's just there looking down at us.

I feel like I'm going to be crushed by the long, lonely nights;
Unfulfilled realities come flooding in...
I want to protect you from this winter...
Let's wait together for the red fruit to grow.

All this dancing snow will probably pile up;
I want the strength to endure this winter...
I want to melt the thorn that remains in a corner of your heart
By the time spring finally comes.
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[1] For those who don't know, a holly is a type of flower. It's usually red, and usually seen around Christmas time (some Christmas wreaths have red flowers in them, and that red flower is usually a holly). ^^

[2] In the acoustic version, Ryo plays guitar and Jun Takase plays piano. Van, of course, sings. (^^) Also, Jun Takase is a member of the GREAT TOUR BAND. He plays keyboard and piano in the live concerts.
