Told myself for a long time
don't go there
you will only be sorry
Told myself so many times
I just had to take a look
in those faraway eyes..

In them I saw a longing
for something
Maybe I couldn't give you
Said it's all in my mind
"It ain't nothing"

Don't say that
Don't say that
darling no
Don't say anything at all
Because I've seen it now
Can't pretend anymore
"It ain't nothing"

[Chorus]
Do you know what I mean?
And have you seen it too?
Do you know what I mean?
Do you know?
And I'll do anything
just tell me what it means
Cause I can't live in doubt anymore
Do we try or should we
just say goodbye

If you'd rather be somewhere
that's not here
then you just gotta tell me
Cause there's so much more to life, than pretending

Don't you know
Don't you know
darling for you
I'd do anything at all
I wanna be with you
but that look in your eyes
tells me something

[Chorus repeat]

I wanna know
can you tell me
I wanna know
will you tell me
is it hello
is it good bye

I gotta know
won't you tell me
I gotta know
you can tell me
is it hello
or just goodbye

I gotta know
can you tell me
I gotta know
will you tell me
is it hello
is it goodbye

I gotta know
won't you tell me
I gotta know
You can tell me
is it hello
is it goodbye

    General CommentWHoo! One of my favorite songs... Even though I've never seen the anime, lol! Hmm... The way she sings the chorus isn't that clear. Sometimes it sounds like,"Do you know my name".... I dunno. Some sties put the lyrics as that.... Hey, who knows? This song's still great, right?
    Her voice sounds low-pitched in this song... And personally, I think it sounds better! ...Or is it some computer that changed her voice and the way she speaks English?

    General CommentI haven't listened to a J-musician in quite a while. This is the song (apart from the many (English language) Indie sounds) on my playlist that I've been listening to. And I have a reason for doing so.

    I think this song is about someone who can't help but dwell on a failed relationship (the opening verse cleary implies that) and couldn't move on. The rest of the lyrics are pretty much straight-forward and clear for a simple interpretation. Its otherwise a serene song that isn't emotive, in my opinion.

    General CommentAs someone who has lost the love of their life i can tell you this song is about love,the pain that comes with loving someone ,and wanting to know the truth no matter how painful it may be.

    the opening to the song doesnt neccesarily mean the two have split just that she didnt wish to keep on living that way and that she HAD to talk to him about the issue.

    as with most relationships there is something that lies just beneath the surface of the relationship that sometimes the two ppl involved dont want to bring up or discuss but know its there.

    "told myself for a long time dont go there you will only be sorry"
    "do you know what i mean?
    and have you seen it too?"

    i will always remember everyword to this song to the day i die because the truth in this song is beautiful and from the heart of someone truly in love.
