Fruits Basket has *almost* replaced Cardcaptor Sakura as my favorite anime. Again, another October Project song, and as usual, I’m really happy with the way it turned out.

Originally I was using the imagery from anime to tell the story of the song (something a bit different), but looking at the final version, there is a lot of Kyo & Tohru in there as well . . . or as much as any of my mvs relate to the original story of the anime. 🙂

LYRICS:

There was Johnny like a stranger
Living in a small town
Measuring the small time
He was thinner than a razor
Johnny in a small town
Living with his thumb on the trigger
Wishing he could be
Just a little bit bigger
Bored
To the heart of himself

He was trouble in the making
Trouble in the keeping
History repeating
He was walking into danger
Johnny in a small town
Looking for a light in the tunnel
Creeping in the dark and
Doubting that the sun’ll shine
To the heart of himself

And he tells himself
It’ll be all right
Happiness is just around the corner
And he tells himself
It’ll be okay
Happiness is just a life away

She was pretty as a picture
Shining in a window
Everybody said so
What did Johnny have to give her
Johnny in a small town
Putting on a suit he had borrowed
Knowing she would probably
Leave him tomorrow
Leave him alone with himself

And he tells himself
It’ll be all right
Happiness is just around the corner
And he tells himself
It’ll be okay
Happiness is just a life away

Everything is different but it’s all the same to him
Everything is nothing like it was
Before she came
Before she stayed
And went away

She left Johnny like a stranger
Waiting in a small town
Measuring the small time
Nights were longer than the days were
Living in a small town
Looking for a door he could open
Hoping that he wouldn’t break until he broken free
To the heart of himself

And he tells himself
It’ll be all right
Happiness is just around the corner
And he tells himself
It’ll be okay
Happiness is just a life away

And he tells himself it’ll be all right
Happiness is just around the corner
And he tells himself
It’ll be okay
Happiness is just a life away
A life away
Just a life away
