Why can't it, be perfect?
This love's not, even real
Why don't I, cry for you?
Love was dead, from the start

I don't want you
I don't need you
I'll forget you
It doesn't matter

I'll play along
Writing our song
We are perfect
I love you

No, this all wrong
Why aren't you gone?
I know you're not that strong
Don't listen to me
We'll always be so perfectly
Happy

[Instrumental]

The lies you, succumb to
Blissfully, unaware
I don't know, how you can't
See through my, facade

I don't want you
I don't need you
I'll forget you
It doesn't matter

I'll play along
Writing our song
We are perfect
I love you

No, this all wrong
Why aren't you gone?
I know you're not that strong
Don't listen to me
We'll always be so perfectly
Happy

And maybe, one day I'll
Get to see, your smile
In the arms, of someone
Who loves you, like I do

[Beat]

No, this all wrong
Why aren't you gone?
I know you're not that strong
Don't listen to me
We'll always be so perfectly
Happy
I love this song-- I have no idea why. Usually I'm not into songs about heartbreak, but this particular song... I don't know if it's the actual music or how Luka's voice is used on the song, but I just really, really like it.

A small analysis, which was originally a comment I posted on YouTube; "In this song, Luka sounds like she's in some sort of denial, as though two parts of her are fighting against each other. One half still loves Gakupo (the ponytail, guys) and wants the romance to continue, but the other half has realized that the love between the two is fading (or already has) and has accepted it. Near the end of the song, it seems that they've finally broken up and Gakupo is with someone else. Luka, on the other hand, still loves Gakupo deep down. At the very end, she gives up."

In addition, the lyrics indicate that Gakupo had least tried to keep the relationship going ("Why aren't you gone? I know you're not that strong"), but gave up because Luka was possibly being indecisive; he was also probably the one who ended the relationship.

I originally heard the song in this music video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1xicO…
GUMI's reply song, "I (Love)": www.youtube.com/watch?v=InxwGZ…

UPDATE 9/3/2013: I would like to point out that I heard this song before I found out it was about a homosexual relationship. More specifically, I found the above video first, and my original interpretation has since stuck with me.

UPDATE 12/30/2013: WolfKomoki was kind enough to translate this song into Spanish! Here's the link: wolfkomoki.deviantart.com/art/…

UPDATE 1/19/2014: Jesus fucking Christ!! Almost every other day I get on this website I get a message that someone faved this! It's gotten up to ninety already! Ninety!! How is that even possible?!

UPDATE 2/19/2014: vocaloid00lyrics requested that I add a link to GUMI's reply song, "I (Love)". It's right under the link to the "Lie" video.

Not sure why I love this song so much. It's also not normally the type of song I like. Maybe it's just the simplicity and the emotion behind the lyrics...All I know is eventually I will be covering this. Thank you for the lyrics.

I've been looking for Lyrics for so long. Although I do have one question. Isn't it 'What does it matter?' and not 'It doesn't matter?'

I love this song even though it almost drives me to tears sometimes... For me it's the way she sings it and the music itself.
And put it all together along with the AMV for it and you have a pretty sad but beautiful song.

por qué no puede ser perfecto,
este amor es ni siquiera real
¿Por qué no yo, grito para tú?
amor era muerte, desde el comienzo

yo no querer tú
yo no necesitar tú
voy olvidar tú
!no importante!

voy jugar al lado de
escritura nuestro canción
nosotros son perfecto
te amo

no, este es incorrecto
¿Por qué no son tu ido?
yo sé tu no son que fuerte
no escuchar a me
Vamos a siempre ser perfecto feliz
Las mentiras tu siempre sucumbir a
dichosamente, desprevenido
no sé como tu no puede
ver a través de mi fachada



yo no querer tú
yo no necesitar tú
voy olvidar tú
!no importante!

voy jugar al lado de
escritura nuestro canción
nosotros son perfecto
te amo

no, este es incorrecto
¿Por qué no son tu ido?
yo sé tu no son que fuerte
no escuchar a me
Vamos a siempre ser perfecto feliz

y tal vez un día voy
llegar a ver tu sonrisa
En los brazos de alguien
que amores tú,
como yo hacer

no, este es incorrecto
¿Por qué no son tu ido?
yo sé tu no son que fuerte
no escuchar a me
Vamos a siempre ser perfecto feliz

Actually, this is a song from Luka to Gumi. Gumi has a song called Love that's a reply to Lie. As beautiful as the video is visually, it's a fan made PV.

Sorry, I re-read the description, so I stick with my original comment.

If you do not like someone telling you information about what you heard, I would suggest that you change your description.
Sorry.

I did, but it seemed that you posted that the song was about Gakupo and Luka. If had read anything different, I promise I would not have posted my comment.
I do make sure to read descriptions before I post. So if I mis-posted due to my failure to read the description in full, then I apologize.
But, I know what I read, and that was the only reason I posted what I did.

I meant no offense by it, but instead, posted it to inform.

I read all three of your comments, and certainly I don't mind being told information... but I am quite sure I put in the little tidbit about me finding the song before I found out that it was about a homosexual relationship. Of sorts.

:iconcherushimetsumari:
CherushiMetsumari Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope. I just re-read the description again, and there's nothing in there about the homosexual relationship.

Anyways, I was trying to give you information so you're more aware of what the song was about. I didn't know that you had already known about it, or I would not have bothered saying anything.

If you would not like to have things repeated, then you might want to change your description. I can understand also that you stated that I should read the description earlier, but as it turned out, the information wasn't updated there.

Thank you for your understanding.

This song is the next to Gumi's I (love). This is about Luka loving Gumi but she can't accept those feelings because they're not normal. In order to forget Gumi, she dates Gakupo (the truth is that Gakupo only shows up in the PV, the author of the two songs never said anything about Gakupo) and she tries to love him but she can't, because she misses Gumi. When she says "And maybe, one day I'll Get to see, your smile In the arms, of someone Who loves you, like I do" is about Gumi, because Luka is afraid of her strange love for Gumi and she can't date her. In the song I (love) Gumi talks about a GIRL who she loves a lot, but that girl (Luka) is dating a guy. Even so, Gumi says she won't let that guy steal Luka from her. If you listen the two songs you'll understand that this is the interpretstion the author wanted to show, even if you not aprove the GumixLuka. All this songs want to tell us is that we don't have to be afraid about who we love and we have to be brave, and not worrying about what society thinks.

It's actually a song about Luka's mixed feelings for Gumi. Luka loves Gumi but knows this is a forbidden type of love. So she pretends to be in a relationship and hopes Gumi moves on.

The answer song is entitled "I (Love)" by Gumi.
