The official Twitter of YOASOBI also unveiled the full lyrics of Oshi No Ko’s Opening theme “Idol”. It goes like this:
Couldn’t beat her smile, it stirred up all the media Secret side, I wanna know it
Even that elusive side, part of her controlled area Complete and perfect
All you say is a bunch of lies
Dear miss genius idol, unmatched What did you eat today?
What book do you love?
Whenever you go out for fun, tell me, where do you go?
Haven’t eaten anything
It’s a secret, unknown
Any questions you’re facing, always acting so vaguely
So unconcerned, although you brightly glow
Any seemingly unveiled secrets are as sweet as honey Confusing, why, why, why?
Essential lie, lie, lie
So, what is your type of guy? Any partner?
So, now, answer this
“I don’t have any idea how I could love anyone” “I don’t seem to know what it
Cannot find out if it’s true or it’s a lie
Once again, there’s somebody who’s fallen for the words and cues Made him lose
his head over you
That emotion melts all hearts, all eyes on you Cause you are perfect, the most
ultimate idol Unrivaled, will not appear again
It’s the brightest star reborn, yes, indeed Using that smiling face
That “I love you” again
Now, everybody is lured and captivated by you The pupil that you got
The words you vocalize
Even when untrue, it’s your perfected Ai
Right, right, we all know she’s very special, yes
We had lost the fight before it started, so impressed Miss I’m such a star
We’re serving as support to her grace
Cannot tell me everything was because of her No, it’s not right
out of line
How can we not feel jealous while being around It’s not a joke, you know, right?
So, I cannot forgive you for that
Completely deny Imperfect you that I sight Myself, no pardon allowed
I won’t allow anyone If it’s not you, strongest of all
That emotion seized all hearts worshiping you Yes, indeed
So strong, it’s you, unrivaled idol There cannot be weaknesses to find The
brightest star is residing in you
The gaps and shortcomings, don’t show’em Dammit, dammit
Parts nobody wants to know should remain hidden
One and only
If it’s different, no way, no way Such a true love, it’s the realest Ai
Showing this smile, my own weapon Boiling media
Keeping everything about my secret deep inside
“I‘m in love with you,” my career is built on such a lie It’s the way I know to show
my love, without a doubt Running down, my sweat is flowing
Cleanest aqua, right?
Ruby hidden under my eyelids where it resides I sing and dance around
Look at me, I’m Maria
So, lying surely is the greatest kind of love
I recall no one that loved me whole before And I’ve not been in love with anybody
before Now, the lies I’m making up
I’m hoping that a day comes when they all become true And I keep wishing they do
One day, I will hold everything that I pursue Yes, I am so greedy, true voracious
So, sincerely, what I’m wishing for is to love each of you with all my heart And so,
today, I lie again
The words I vocalize inside of me
I’m wishing that one day they come true Up to this day, I’ve not been able to let
And you hear me saying those meaningful words
I said it at last
I know it’s not a lie as I’m voicing these words I love you
Listen to the song in all platforms like Spotify, ITunes, Apple Music, Line, Amazon, etc. right here!
