Lyrics

Once

Written By: Mayu Wakisaka

Once
Once I was thunder
You were a tree
Somehow we met
But the lightning struck you down
And I hoped that I’d see you again

Once I was a leaf
You were the wind
Somehow we met
You blew me away
And I hoped that I’d see you again

‘cause I thought that I’d found
The only one in the crowd
My missing piece ,mymissing piece
You’re my missing piece

Once I was silence
You were a song
I learned to sing
And your notes took over me
How I hoped that I’d see you again

repeat

In another life we’ll be together
Till then we keep our eyes open
Whatever could happen
When will I see you again? When?

Once I was me
You were you
Somehow we met
I cried and you left
But I hoped that I’d see you again
Oh how I hoped that I’d see you again

hiding in my blanket

Written By: mayu wakisaka


It’s half past eight
I don’t wanna wake up yet
Feeling the weight of your head
I’m still in my bed

I can feel the morning sun
Take over the last night’s fun
It was not in my plan
after we’re undone

You breathe easy next me
my heart is beating fast
it might wake you up

Oh I don’t what to do
‘cause I really don’t know you
But I started liking you

Oh
I hope you feel the same way, too
But I really don’t know you
I’m still hiding in my blanket

With no make up anymore
you may see all my pores
I feel insecure
I think I’m gonna be a bore

Oh, my dress is on the floor
My feet are sore
From the fancy heels I wore
I can’t make it to the door

You breathe easy next me
my heart is beating so (fast )
it might wake you up

Oh I don’t what to do
‘cause I really don’t know you
But I started liking you

fall

Written By: Mayu Wakisaka

Locked up feeling scared to see the light/ Made up reasons to get through the night/ But someone told you it’d be unwise to fall from the sky up so high/ You’re scared to fall/ You’re scared to fall/ You held your breath when you first saw her face/ She caught your eyes and your heart started to race/ Though someone said that you have to wait till you hear the cue then it’s too late/When you hear the cue then it’s too late/You’ve started to fall/ You’ve started to fall……/ You never feel anything when you hit the ground as your body bounces/ Just the weight of your flesh and bones kissing the ground/ You’ve started to fall/ You’ve started to fall……/ There’s no need to be scared when you hit the ground/ Just fall......
