Jiyuu de aru Tame ni

To Get Freedom

Sung by: V6

Version 1.00

Note: I always think of this song as being different from many of the other V6 singles. Although the style is pretty close to the Eurobeat-techno V6 songs, the message and general sound of the song is considerably darker than most of the other V6 singles. (Not that this song is necessarily dark; I'm speaking in relative terms you realize...) In a concert I own, they ended up sticking it between "EASY SHOW TIME" and "Can do! Can go!", which was, as you can imagine, more than a little bit weird. Ah, well...


dareka o yonderu CALL
yozora ni hibiku
hitori ja nai to
itte hoshii dake de

Someone's calling CALL
Ringing in the night sky
I just want it to say
"You're not alone"


ima sugu aitai no wa
tenshi ja nai
onaji kodoku o shiru SOMEBODY

The one who I want to meet right now
Isn't an angel
But SOMEBODY who knows the same loneliness


DO YOU... DO YOU WANNA BE FREEDOM?
donna ashita mo osorezu ni
kizutsuku bakari no LONELY HEART
buchikowaseba ii
DO YOU... DO YOU KNOW YOUR TRUE TENDERNESS?
sore wa dare ni mo niteinai
kimi ga kimi de iru tame ni
sagasu mono o     oshiete

DO YOU... DO YOU WANNA BE FREEDOM?
Don't be afraid of any kind of tomorrow
A recently wounded LONELY HEART
Go ahead and destroy it
DO YOU... DO YOU KNOW YOUR TRUE TENDERNESS?
That's not like anyone else
Tell me what
You're searching for     to be yourself


GAME o kitta monitaa
tsumetai REAL
te ni ireta no wa
subete IMITATION

The monitor that turned off the GAME
Cold REAL
The things I got
Were all IMITATION


nanika ga tarinai n da to
mune ga sakebu
fui ni jibun wa tada NOBODY

My heart cries out
That there's something missing
Suddenly I'm just NOBODY


DO YOU... DO YOU WANNA BE FREEDOM?
donna mirai o odoritai?
utsumuku dake de wa BROKEN HEART
kirinukerarenai
DO YOU... DO YOU KNOW YOUR TRUE TENDERNESS?
sore wa tashika ni kanau koto
yume o kuchi ni suru mae ni
dekiru nanika     shiritai

DO YOU... DO YOU WANNA BE FREEDOM?
What kind of future do you want to dance?
I just hung my head BROKEN HEART
I can't fight my way through
DO YOU... DO YOU KNOW YOUR TRUE TENDERNESS?
That's something that can definitely be granted
Before mentioning dreams
I want to know     what I can do


DO YOU... DO YOU WANNA BE FREEDOM?
donna ashita mo osorezu ni
kizutsuku bakari no LONELY HEART
buchikowaseba ii
DO YOU... DO YOU KNOW YOUR TRUE TENDERNESS?
sore wa dare ni mo niteinai
kimi ga kimi de iru tame ni
sagasu mono o     oshiete

DO YOU... DO YOU WANNA BE FREEDOM?
Don't be afraid of any kind of tomorrow
A recently wounded LONELY HEART
Go ahead and destroy it
DO YOU... DO YOU KNOW YOUR TRUE TENDERNESS?
That's not like anyone else
Tell me what
You're searching for     to be yourself
