  • Comments: My first AMV ever, this was done on a complete whim. I heard this song and was baffled by how much it reminds me of Yuki and Kyo. I'm terribly sorry about the subtitles; I have Fruits Basket on DVD (what true fan wouldn't?), but my computer couldn't read them and I was forced to use the fansubbed versions. I don't think that it takes away from the video too much though; they're pretty easy to ignore.

    Anyway, this is supposed to be Yuki and Kyo fighting with each other (as usual) about whose life has really been worse. I often find myself contemplating which one of them truly is worse off, and I've come to the conclusion that both just had very different but equally crappy childhoods. :)

    So we open up with Kyo first, and his part of the story:

    "I don't believe in unity
    It's just one more abandoned dream
    Once the people get together it's easy to see
    It's just a matter of time til they come after me

    But it must be pretty cool to be you
    With your brothers at your back, protecting you
    Must be pretty cool to know you belong
    Isolated my whole life, counting scars in the land of the smiling knives
    Yes I'm envious it's true, but it must be cool to be you"


    Then Yuki makes his comeback:

    "You got a loving family to give you everything you need
    My family loves each other so much
    We live a thousand miles away and never stay in touch

    But it must be pretty cool to be you
    With a house and a family to go home to
    Must be pretty cool to know you belong
    Isolated my whole life, counting scars in the land of the smiling knives
    Yes I'm envious it's true but it must be cool to be you"


    Then it switches between the two until the end. Anyone who has read the manga (specifically Volume 11) will understand the whole Akito-as-God thing:

    "What can I do? I know this bitter jealousy is wrong
    Maybe i'll move, and find a brand new place I don't belong
    Some friends I'll never know (I'll never know)
    New places I can't go (I can't go)
    Cause everywhere I've been
    Is on the outside lookin in...

    You got a deep sustaining faith,
    A lord who listens when you pray
    I was raised in a church and I was taught to believe
    I wonder if God believes in me..."
