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.

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.
