Print Lyrics


Kono basho ni iru tashika na mono o
Tesaguri de sagashite mita
Mada minu ashita o mitsumete wa... [1]
Naiteita iradatteta

BARANSU (Balance) torinagara
Tsunawatari no mainichi...

Daremo ga minna MY LIFE mitsukete
Kono te ni ima eranda kara
Sore ga subete MY WISH jibun no ashi de
Ikite yuku yo
Shinjita michi

Deai ga fukuzatsu ni karande
Kirenai kizuna ni natte
Sono ue o mata kyou mo watatte
Jouzu ni aruite yuku

Ataerareru koto ni
Manzoku shinai youni...

Daremo ga minna SOLDIER makezu ni
Kizutsuku no o osorenaide
Nigeru koto wa ALWAYS itsudemo dekiru
Honno sukoshi yasumeba ii

Daremo ga minna yamu jidai ni
Kono te ni ima eranda kara
Futo kidzuite tachidomattemo
Mata jouzu ni arukeru kara

Daremo ga minna MY LIFE mitsukete
Kono te ni ima eranda kara
Sore ga subete MY WISH jibun no ashi de
Ikite yuku yo
Shinjita michi


I searched, groping with my hands,
For concrete proof that I'm here.
When I tried to look at the tomorrow I still couldn't see... [1]
I was crying, I was irritated...

Everyday I'm walking a tightrope,
Trying to keep my balance...

Everyone finds their own life,
So I've made my choice with my own hands.
It's all my wish --
I'll walk through life on my own feet,
By the path I believe in.

Chance meetings are linked together in a complex way,
And become unbreakable bonds.
And today, once again,
We walk adeptly across them...

...So that we aren't satisfied
With what we're given.

Everyone's a soldier, so don't give up --
Don't be afraid of getting hurt.
You can always run away anytime;
Just take a little rest.

In a time when everyone's hearts are in pain,
You made your choice with your own hands.
Even if a sudden realization causes you to stop,
You'll be able to walk well again.

Everyone finds their own life,
So I've made my choice with my own hands.
It's all my wish --
I'll walk through life on my own feet,
By the path I believe in.
Oasis Heart3's Note:
[1] This line, and the one above it (ie: "mada minu...") might sound like Van is saying something different (ex: "Karada minu"..."Kinaiteta"), but what's happening is that the music -- the drums and the cymbals -- are interferring with her voice, and that makes it sound like another syllable is being added. If you listen closely enough, you'll see what I mean.
