Here, people look for heaven
Livin’ in a fear of God
Losing themselves, hiding forever
Afraid of what they’re not
She spent her whole life
Chasing stardust
And then when she could taste it
A million dollars of pride
And still unhappy

So sad, she couldn’t feel, she couldn’t feel
I know the story
So sad, she couldn’t feel, she couldn’t feel
I know the score

Here I am, I’ve walked a promise
But it can take so long
Here I am, I’ve walked the shadows
It’s time that I move on
With myself, I share the silence
I just walk along
Walk along

Here, people hide in darkness
Watchin’ their shadows grow
Tears of gold or nothing matters
Selling themselves out short
Take diamonds for hope and fame for caring
The things she couldn’t give up
She blows out the candle of love
And loses her way out

So mad, she couldn’t see, she couldn’t see
I know the story
So mad, she couldn’t see, she couldn’t see
I know the score

Here I am, I’ve walked a promise
But it can take so long
Here I am, I’ve walked the shadows
It’s time that I move on
With myself, I share the silence
I just walk along
I walk along

People here choose not to listen
Afraid of what they might hear
Believing in lies and contradiction
Can be so safe and warm
And so many people tried to tell her
You know she wouldn’t listen
A million voices called out
She just walked away

So loud, she couldn’t hear, she couldn’t hear
I know the story
So loud, she couldn’t hear, she wouldn’t hear
I know the score

Here I am, I’ve walked a promise
But it can take so long
Here I am, I’ve walked the shadows
It’s time that I move on
With myself, I share the silence
I just walk along
I walk along

Song info: From the 2002 Youko Kanno-composed album 23ji no Ongaku [11 p.m. Music] (original Japanese: 23時の音楽), a soundtrack to the NHK serial drama “Mayonaka wa Betsu no Kao [The Other Side of Midnight]” (original Japanese: 真夜中は別の顔) where this song was used as a BGM.
Maaya’s liner notes: I, too, often step back and look at myself from far away. (Translated by Boobear and neoangel_1 of Jpopmusic.com Forums)
