YUI - My Short Stories

YUI - My Short Stories

01. I’ll be

I’ll be thinking
About you
You’ve decided on your journey right
Together You have my support no matter when

If there ever comes a time when you feel like giving up
Don’t simply coop up in your room

Walk on the streets
Oh Baby Try to find that feeling
Which you felt on this day

Try over and over again “Play You”
Because there ain’t any other choice

I’ll be You just have to
Paint it into your own color
Though there will definitely be uncertainties
Together You have my support no matter when

If there ever comes a time when you feel like you’re losing to loneliness
Listen to the songs that you love

Even if you are
Lost in the crowd
You’ll be able to find it Oh Baby Try

Because a smile will “Play You”
Become your strength

I’ll be thinking
About you
You’ve decided on your journey right
Together You have my support no matter when

The time when you find yourself slowly
Beginning to love someone
The courage to protect that someone
Will grow in you

I’ll be Each time you look back
On those little disappointments definitely
You’ll be able to feel the gentleness
It seems life is not something to be thrown away

I’ll be You just have to
Paint it into your own colour
Though there will definitely be uncertainties
Together You have my support no matter when

02. HELP

What should I do? Hey, God
This sadness never goes away

If it’s a test, I’ll bear it
But fate is up to you

I’m not a lucky girl
I want to walk with a light step

These feelings just keep swelling
I want you to find me, ah ah, please

Oh baby, baby
Oh baby, baby, I’ve been dreaming about this since I was little
Baby, baby, this longing just grows stronger, oh yeah!
Give me a chance
I believe my God oh oh oh!
I believe myself oh oh oh!
Yeah! God, help!

I’ll try my best and what’s left
Can’t be helped, so I’ll just put my hands together

I won’t lose my smile
So find me, ah ah, please

Oh baby, baby
Oh baby, baby, I’m in love with you alone
Baby, baby, don’t tease me, oh yeah!
Give me a chance
I believe my God oh oh oh!
I believe myself oh oh oh!
Yeah! God, help!

Oh baby, baby
Oh baby, baby, I’ve been dreaming about this since I was little
Baby, baby, this longing just grows stronger, oh yeah!
Give me a chance
I believe my God oh oh oh!
I believe myself oh oh oh!
Yeah! God, help!

03. Last Train

I gazed at the highway from my old haunts.
On it crowds of people rushed home;
I chased them like a little child.

It might be the same thing…
No! It is the same thing!
I might be going in circles,
But still, I move on.

Now I board the Last Train of the day,
I don’t want to come back here.

If only I could see you
Before tomorrow’s sunrise.
I feel the distance with you.

We keep on sinning and suffering,
Our only comfort is our fleeting past.

I think I understand you better now
More than I ever have.

Now I board the Last Train of the day,
I want to see you, but you’re not here.

If only I could see you
Before tomorrow’s sunrise.
I feel the distance with you.

Someone’s kind words and smile
Are all I need to get stronger.

I want to jump on the Last Train of the day,
My feelings can’t wait ’til tomorrow.

I want to see you right now.
I don’t want to lose this feeling, yeah!

As I ride the Last Train, I look out the window.
I see your words flying with the stars.

I want to see you so badly,
So I’ll keep riding this train until I do.

04. Winter Hot Music

No matter what I do, I’m no good at getting up on winter mornings I get cold easily
so I want to stay under the covers A little longer like this…

Music, I reached out past my pillow Music, grabbed my remote control Music
pointed it at the stereo And hit the switch, at 7am A rhythm fills the room

making me feel good Even though I know I’ll have to get out of bed soon A little longer like this…
Music, like the tracks, music, of the wind Music

it sets me free Music, and makes my wishes come true A happy 7:05am
Even if an invisible magic takes hold of me I can make it through

it’s OK Music, I forgot, music, how depressed I was yesterday Music
when I listened, music, my world changed Music, but I’ve got to get up

music, I’ve slept in again Music, I’m panicking a little Music
I open the curtains to see white snow; it’s 8am

05. Jam

How many times should I say this?

I’m not one of those good girls you always think of
At the corner of the gasoline stand, I see an old warehouse
On their way home from the live house

the bands collect their jam music on a Thursday night
He likes punk rock, in summer he is still wearing a skin of jam music.
I think it’s kind of funny, but this moment rocks!
Oh anarchy in the night Yeah!
Tomorrow I’ll be on TV, that’s what I’ll hear when the phone rings..

but sorry I have to go home.
Punk’s not dead! You made a weird face, then let me laugh at it.
Even if someone doesn’t pick me up, it’ll be okay..

I want to get a license and a motorcycle so I can go home.
He likes punk rock, his Les Paul guitar is really heavy
From my striking of the drums, comes the last moment Oh Baby
Oh anarchy in the night Yeah!

I thrust out my lips to try to imitate his action
Still my guitar holds my rock
I believe I’m not losing.

The era of punk rock is now still forever living on
In just a little while, I’ll break down and won’t go on.. Oh Baby No Future
Oh anarchy in the night Yeah!

06. Skyline

I think I think a little too much
In my room where I can’t sleep

I want to just run away from this night
My sighs fall onto the window

I want to fly far away
Away from the moonlight
What should I do?

I want to fly well, I want to fly well
I just don’t know how to fly…
I want to fly well, I want to fly well
I wish someone would teach me

Surely everything’s unfamiliar
Even the TV is full of lies

I keep running for shelter from the rain
I can’t go on like this
I don’t care if I get drenched

I want to fly well I want to fly well
In order to learn to fly…
I want to fly well I want to fly well
You have to get out into the sky, to skyline

I can’t wait for my chance
How many of the same old mornings
Have I counted so far, picturing the skyline

I don’t know how to fly
I don’t even know if I can fly
I want to fly well I want to fly well
But I’ll go

I want to fly well I want to fly well
In order to learn to fly…
I want to fly well I want to fly well
You have to get out into the sky, to skyline

07. Free Bird

Reassuring myself, I fly over the mountains and sea.
It doesn’t bore me a bit.

As I fly over time, my pain and excitement tingle.
A day’s gonna come when I’ll want something more.

Like a bird, I’ll swim through the sky.
With a groan, I’ll swim through the sky.
Put all your dreams in your life!

I try to let this headwind flow through me.
None of these days lets me rest.
But still, I’ll laugh and wave my hands.

I’ll fly o’er the sea like the wind.
I’ll fly o’er that clear blue sea.
Let those open words be in your life!

I’ll swim through the sky like a bird.
I’ll swim through the sky without shedding a tear.

Put all your dreams in your life!

08. I wanna be…

Simply by losing the diary which I’ve just bought
Makes me feel like I can’t envision tomorrow
I would rather forget all about it but when I ponder over it
What is the thing that I have come to fear searching for?

I wanna be… Am I close to who I want to be?
Everytime I try asking this, I attempt a nod
I wanna be… Not becoming something like “number one” is fine
Want this to continue I wanna be… That’s really all I want

As long as I’m able to become more carefree and be able to continue singing
Yesterday and all have no way of containing regret
When I attempt in this manner to simply leave everything the way it is now
Who will be the one who whispers before/ahead of loneliness?

I wanna be… I want to become my own much longed after ideal star
Ever since my childhood I’ve always thought about it
I wanna be… Ain’t gonna do comparisons because there are no limits to it
Even when closing my eyes I wanna be…

Because I know thinking too much isn’t good
So if it’s just for a moment I want to be preoccupied

I wanna be… Am I close to who I want to be?
Everytime I try asking this, I attempt a nod
I wanna be… Not becoming something like “number one” is fine
Want this to continue I wanna be… That’s really all I want

09. Oh My God

As long as I apologize it will be fine
Thought about it countless times
My true self will definitely
Doubt myself

The dawn sky is sleepily
Hiding the stars which failed to escape on time
Without a word
Life is never definite
Marked only by little instances of brushing of the shoulders

Oh My God
It’s totally capricious
Happy at times
Angry at other times

ah ah

There isn’t anything like equality
Should have figured this out long ago
Can’t do the same things repeatedly
And no one’s about to enlighten me

In all of my new encounters
‘Goodbye’ simply replays
Without even a tear
Life is never definite
Marked only by little instances of brushing of the shoulders

Oh My God
It’s totally capricious
Unable to be calculated

But I still possess hope in life
My thoughts will definitely be heard someday

Oh My God
It’s totally capricious
Crying at times
And laughing at other times… ah ah..

10. Cloudy

Why couldn’t you say anything sooner?
…This is too sad
…It can’t be over like this

You always look like you understand
I want to close this distance between us through faith and doubt
Every day, so it doesn’t end

Ah, when I couldn’t see you
I stared at my cell phone
I would have been happy for even an email

Ah, I want you
Because I love you
I waited forever
But the time that passed is cloudy love

Have you fallen for someone?
…That would make me lonely
…I can’t allow it

You always talked like you understood, but…
All the words I believed in grow further and further away
Every day, what should I have done?

Ah, when I couldn’t see you
I stared at my cell phone
I would have been happy for even an email

Ah, I want you
Because I love you
I waited forever
But the time that passed is cloudy love

11. Driving today

I want to go to the beach when I get my license
I’ll hop in the car and take a drive by myself

I’ll pass a sun that no one’s seen
It’s something I long to do, sunset driving today

I’m not just living selfishly
But when I look up at the red sky, I feel like crying

It’s no one’s fault, I just want to feel the wind
The birds in the city don’t sing

My phone keeps ringing
I’m so tired of it

When I want to see someone, when I’m missing someone
I’ll come home, sunset driving today

12. Understand

I was probably crying
downcast on the way back.
Although I was always close by
I couldn’t say a thing…

As I walked
I took the short cut by crossing the park.
I kind of knew already…

…the shadow stretched across the ground
Even I know, the shape of happiness.

“We’ll always be together”
That’s what you said…
“Even when there’s love, there’s always
sadness nearby, hiding”
You laughed as you talked.

If there really was such thing as a hero
I thought you might have a problem with it…

…the shadow stretched across the ground
Even I know, the shape of happiness.

We can’t always be together,
so you can’t live on by always accusing..
Because you repeat the same mistakes
over and over.

…the shadow stretched across the ground
Even I know, the shape of happiness.

Now I’ve started walking…
It’s going to be alright

13. crossroad

Children frolick in the sunshine
Splashing up water
But, unable to smile, I just stare at the scene vaguely

I’m going to quit worrying
About all those unanswered emails

A warm breeze blew as we began to walk
Instead of a goodbye

We can’t find an answer for this
And it’ll keep gnawing at us, baby

We came to a crossroad in our journey
And passed each other, full of complications
I thought you said the shape of each tear was different

I squinted as the light shone down through the trees
The too-bright future is calling to me

Start walking, we’re in the warm breeze
We can’t stand still

We can’t find an answer for this
And it’ll keep gnawing at us, baby

The time we spent together becomes a memory
Instead of a goodbye

Bubbles floated down the tree-lined street and disappeared in the distance
Goodbye, on the other side of sorrow

A warm breeze blew as we began to walk
Instead of a goodbye

We can’t find an answer for this
And it’ll keep gnawing at us, baby

Goodbye, my love, oh baby

14. It’s happy line

Who am I living for?
The cloudy days pass me by.
This weakness, this pain:
Do I feel all of it, or just a little?

I drowned myself in memories, but it didn’t help.
So I’ll start living for today.
But even if I’m a bit lost, yeah, yeah
Before dawn, the twinkling stars vanished.
I wonder: are they really gone?
Or will they be back tomorrow?
Tomorrow never knows
It’s Happy Line.

What should I believe in?
My life flies past me and I don’t even know it.
No matter what the night brings,
Please, don’t frown.

Everyone has happy faces and voices,
I wonder if I can see them.
But even if I can’t laugh, yeah, yeah.
I’ve found my courage at last.
I saw your red eyes and I tried to laugh.
Tomorrow never knows
It’s Happy Line.

I drowned myself in memories, but it didn’t help.
So I’ll start living for today.
But even if I’m a bit lost, yeah, yeah
Before dawn, the twinkling stars vanished.
I wonder: are they really gone?
Or will they be back tomorrow?
Tomorrow never knows
It’s Happy Line.


15. Why me
Find me, Chase me,
I’m always lonely.

The feelings of that Sad Night, long ago…
They melted into the twilight.

My soul feels like it’s fading away too…
Like everybody I see is taking a piece of it…

I’ve always believed someone will save me,
But using my own legs, I’ll just be myself.

By My Weakness, By My Sorrow,
I’ll find the courage within me.
From here on out, By My Weakness
I’ll hold that shining future in my hands
Good Day…Oh My Self…

I need you here
I’ve searched and searched for you.

Every night when I didn’t stand still,
Before sunrise, I embraced the sky.

I’ll never forget the songs
That you sang and gave to me.
I can get stronger. I’ll just by myself.

By My Weakness, By My Sorrow,
I’ll find the courage within me.
From here on out, By My Weakness,
I’ll hold that shining future in my hands.

By My Weakness, By My Sorrow,
I’ll find the courage within me.
From here on out, By My Weakness,
I’ll hold that shining future in my hands.

By My Weakness, By My Sorrow,
From here on out, By My Weakness,
I’ll hold that shining future in my hands.
