Prisoner of Love

I absolutely love Prisoner of Love, the opening theme of Last Friends, by Utada Hikaru! It's so beautiful, so addictive that I've been playing it over and over again. Heck I even looked up the lyrics just to be able to sing along to it! Lol...

Lyrics (both japanese and english version taken from here)

I'm a prisoner of love
Prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love
I'm just a prisoner of love
A prisoner of love

Heiki na kao de uso wo tsuite
Waratte iyake ga sashite
Raku bakari shiyou to shite ita
With an indifferent face you tell a lie
Laughing until you feel sick
"Let's have nothing but fun" you said

Naimononedari buru-su
Mina yasuragi wo motomete iru
Michitariteru noni ubaiau
Ai no kage wo otte iru
Feeling blue over desiring the impossible
Everyone is seeking tranquility
You're struggling, but you've had enough
Now you're chasing after a shadow of love

Taikutsu na mainichi ga kyuu ni kagayakidashita
Anata ga arawareta ano hi kara
Kodoku demo tsurakutemo heiki da to omoeta
I'm just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love
Since the day you appeared
My dull "everyday"s have begun to shine
Now I'm able to think, "Feeling loneliness, being in pain - that's not so bad"
I'm just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love


Prisoner of love
Prisoner of love
I'm a prisoner of love

Yameru toki mo sukoyaka naru toki mo
Arashi no hi mo hare no hi mo tomo ni ayumou
Through painful times and healthy times,
Stormy days and sunny days, let's walk on together

I'm gonna tell you the truth
Hitoshirezu tsurai michi wo erabu
watashi wo ouen shite kureru
Anata dake wo tomo to yobu
I'm gonna tell you the truth
I chose an unforeseeably painful path
and you came to support me
You're the only one I can call a friend

Tsuyogari ya yokubari ga muimi ni narimashita
Anata ni ai sareta ano hi kara
Jiyuu demo yoyuu demo hitori ja munashii wa
I'm just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love
Fake displays of strength and avarice have become meaningless
I've been in love with you since that day
When I'm free, with time to spare, there's no life in being alone
I'm just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love

Oh mou sukoshi da yo
Don't you give up
Oh misutenai zettai ni
Oh... Just a little more
Don't you give up
Oh don't ever abandon me

Zankoku na genjitsu ga futari wo hikisakeba
Yori issou tsuyoku hikareau
Ikura demo ikura demo ganbareru ki ga shita
I'm just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love
If the cruelty of reality tries to tear us apart
We'll be drawn more closely to one another
Somehow, somehow, I have a feeling we'll be able to stand firm
I'm just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love

Arifureta nichijou ga kyuu ni kagayakidashita
Kokoro wo ubawareta ano hi kara
Kodoku demo tsurakutemo heiki da to omoeta
I'm just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love
Every day banalities quickly begin to shine brilliantly
You stole my heart that day
Loneliness and pain, I thought I could deal with
I'm just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love

I'm a prisoner of love
Prisoner of love
Prisoner of love
I'm just a prisoner of love
I'm a prisoner of love

Stay with me, stay with me
My baby, say you love me
Stay with me, stay with me
Hitori ni sasenai
Stay with me, stay with me
My baby, say you love me
Stay with me, stay with me
Don't leave me alone again


Still can't get enough of it? Then watch the video!
