"Ib" - IA

Title: "Ib"
Artist: IA
Composer: コウ (Kou)

In a lonely and broken world I
See so many colours I can't define
There, I noticed, caught in my eyes
A single red rose, blooming with life

Even when I was trembling with pain
Even when happiness was hid by fear
Even when despair was too real to take
You were there and made it all disappear

Ah, Inside of this dream
A love was born and I only
Wish I could paint it and add
True colour to this world

A pretty painting made just for show
Where did my real existence go?
I forgot kindness, I was alone
Smiling, I hold a fake yellow rose

Forever, from now, let's be together
Your reality, I'll keep it to myself

Lonely, empty, eternity, hiding, a shiny piece of candy
The laughing rabbits shatter and break
Even though those flowers you hold seal your fate
Will you still try to drench this mistake of a day in red?

You want control, you want the poison, it's all in your sight
When it's found, all will break apart, falling into pieces
"I just wanted to be loved, father, anyone, please,
somebody, won’t you come and find me."

If there is no way that I can save you
Without, in the end, being torn apart
Then I guess that's what I will have to do
Just say you won't forget me in your heart

Ah, the love that was born
Ah, the colour we needed for
It to be real, it was in
"The language of flowers"

Ah, these memories we made
Ah, they won't fade away
'Cause I will draw them all in colour
isn't that right,

(Ib. Aaah--)

What a wonderful art gallery
Hallways all full of lovely paintings
A voice somehow familiar to me
Called out my name while gently smiling

Other Information:
A song based around the titular game, Ib.
The lyrics take turns at being from a character's perspective, with Ib, Mary, and Gary respectively.

  1. I've been wondering what this song's lyrics were about, having played Ib a little ways back.

    I've also been wanting to do some sort of fan art piece for this game, and after reading the lyrics for the story, I think I've found some inspiration. :)
    Thank you for the lyrics!

    1. These lyrics aren't a direct translation though - if you want something more accurate check the youtube link!

    2. I constantly sing to these lyrics you have here, so thank you all the same! :)

      Of course, I'll check the video link when I actually get to a computer. YouTube isn't too fond of my phone.

  2. Can I use this lyrics to cover the song? :3
