Print Lyrics


Atashi ga mukashi mitsuketa mono wa
Soko nashi no meiro de
Anata ga tsune ni sagashiteta mono
Ame no naka no MARIA

Atashi wa sude ni shibire kira shite
Kara o nozokikonda
Kirari to hikaru ashiato dake o
Itazura ni nokoshite

Ame ni sarasu karada ni
Yorokobi kanjite
Jikujiku shiteru Ah...

Shiketa kuuki tashikame
Sewashiku ugoite
Tsuyoi shigeki ni
Me o fuseru Like A Snail

Atashi ga imademo nozomu mono wa
Fuan no nai ashita
Anata wa itsumo hohoemu dake no
Tada sore dake no hito [1]

Imasara nani o shitemo
Teokure joutai
Jitabata shitemo Ah...

Shiketa kao misenaide
Nakanaide
Yoru wa akete yuku mono
Kizukanai Like A Snail

Yariba no nai omoi to
Anata no sonzai
Iraira suru wa Ah...

Iki ga tsumarisou na hodo
Machikutabireteta
Kono tameiki de
Sekai no hate made
Tsukihanashitara
Kizuite kureru no?
Marude anata wa
Okubyou na Like A Snail
Deshou

Hah...


What I found long ago
In the endless maze
Was what you had always searched for --
A Virgin Mary in the rain.

Already impatient,
I peeked into the shell,
Leaving behind
Only a mischievous, glittering trail of footprints.

I feel happiness
Spreading damply
Through my rain-weathered body, ah...

I check the damp air,
And hurry along...
Lowering my eyes
At strong stimuli, like a snail.

What I still want now
Is security for tomorrow;
You always just smile --
That's all you do. [1]

Now it's too late
For me to do anything,
No matter how much I struggle, ah...

Don't show a damp face;
Don't cry...
Morning will come.
You just haven't noticed, like a snail.

These feelings I can't express,
And your existence
Is so annoying, ah...

I'm so tired of waiting
That I can't breathe --
If I shoved you away,
To the end of the world
With this sigh,
Would you even notice?
You're
A coward, like a snail,
Aren't you?

Hah...
Oasis Heart3's Note:
[1] As some of you may know, in part of the song, Van says something in the background. I finally figured out most of what she's saying!
...Here's what she says. (:

## sore dake no hito
     ## person, nothing more...


(## = the part I still don't know. [>.<;] If you know what she's saying here, please email me!!)
