Lyrics

A letter to my future self,
Am I still happy, I began,
Have I grown up pretty,
Is Daddy still a good man,
Am I still friends with Coleen,
I'm sure that I'm still laughing,
aren't I, aren't I,

Hey there to my future self,
If you forget how to smile,
I have this to tell you,
Remember it once in awhile,
Ten years ago your past self,
Prayed for your happiness,
Please don't, lose hope,

Oh, oh what a pair me and you,
Put here to feel joy, not be blue,
Sad times and bad times, see them through,
Soon we will know, if it's for real what we both feel,

Though I can't know for sure how things worked out for us,
No matter how hard it gets, you have to realize:
We weren't put on this earth to suffer and cry,
We were made for being happy—
So...be happy...for me. For you... Please.

Oh, oh what a pair me and you,
Put here to feel joy, not be blue,
Sadder times, and bad times, see them through,
Soon we will know, if it's for real what we both feel,

We were put here on this earth, put here to feel joy. (repeat)

A letter to my future self,
"Am I still happy?", I began
Have I grown up pretty?
Is Daddy still a good man?
Am I still friends with Coleen?
I'm sure that I'm still laughing,
Aren't I? Aren't I?

Hey there to my future self,
If you forget how to smile,
I have this to tell you,
Remember it once in a while

Ten years ago your past self,
Prayed for your happiness,
Please don't lose hope

Oh, oh what a pair, me and you,
Put here to feel joy, not be blue,
Sad times and bad times, see them through,
Soon we will know if it's for real,
What we both feel

(Though I can't know for sure how things worked out for us,
No matter how hard it gets, you have to realize:
We weren't put on this earth to suffer and cry,
We were made for being happy—
So be happy for me, for you, please...)

Oh, oh what a pair, me and you,
Put here to feel joy, not be blue,
Sad times and bad times, see them through,
Soon we will know if it's for real,
What we both feel

We were put here on this earth, put here to feel joy (repeat x3)

Alternate lyrics

The Lost Memories: Silent Hill Chronicle document features a version of the song written in Japanese with a different set of lyrics, including an extra verse.

I wrote a letter to myself,
Ten years from now,
I wonder if I'm happy, I wrote,
Have I grown up pretty?
Is Daddy doing alright?
Am I still friends with Coleen?
I'm know that I'm still laughing, aren't I?

To myself, ten years from now,
If you've forgotten how to smile,
I want to tell you something,
Please don't forget it,
Ten years ago, you prayed for your own happiness,
So keep believing, don't lose hope

Me, and now you, the both of us,
We were born to be happy

A tear-stained face doesn't suit you,
I've said it, so you know that it's true,
A beautiful woman should smile

I wrote a letter to myself,
Ten years from now,
I wonder if I'm happy, I wrote,
Am I doing well?
Have I fallen in love yet?
Do I still twirl my fingers through my hair?
I'm know that I'm still laughing, aren't I?

Me, and now you, the both of us,
We were born to be happy

十年後の私に私は手紙を書いた
私は幸せでしょうか、と
私は綺麗になっていますか?
父さんは元気ですよね?
相変わらずコリンと仲良いですか?
私は勿論、笑っていますよね?

十年後の私
あなたが笑顔を忘れてしまったならば
私は伝えたい言葉があります
思い出してください
十年前のあなたはあなたの幸せを願っています
信じているから、諦めないで

私は、そしてあなたは、私たちは
幸せになるために生まれてきたのですから

あなたに泣き顔は似合いません
私が言うんだから間違いないです
笑っても大した美人じゃないけれど

十年後の私に私は手紙を書いた
私は幸せでしょうか、と
私は元気でやっていますか?
恋人はもういますよね?
相変わらず髪をいじる癖は変わりませんか?
私は勿論、笑っていますよね?

私は、そしてあなたは、私たちは
幸せになるために生まれてきたのですから
