I=Fantasy in English

Anyone who wondered what the words mean in SeeU's catchy I=Fantasy need wait no longer. Although this isn't being sung to an exact literal translation of the Korean original, Tara St. Michel has done a truly great job on this, keeping the sense of the original lyrics. It's just a static image on the video, which is entirely appropriate in this situation.

The song tells the story of how there was an anti- vocaloid sentiment about a year ago, because they "aren't real" Well, most music in the popular/mass-market scene isn't 'real' anyway – though that isn't mentioned in the song and is a topic I intend to expand upon another day.

So, here's Tara's human-sung version of this surprisingly poignant song, in English. Now, do you embrace or hate the Vocaloids?



Lyrics
I am just a dream
Just a dream
I'm in your dreams
I'm an open door
open door
Nothing's out of reach
I Fantasy Fantasy
Oh all that you imagine
I can make it happen
I Fantasy

There are people who just don't understand
Oh no Oh no Oh no
They're hating me because of what I am
Oh no Oh no Oh no

Take a chance and see
There's so much more to me
Don't let yourself be deceived
Reality can meet imagination
And nothing is impossible

I am just a dream
Just a dream
I'm in your dreams
I'm an open door
open door
Nothing's out of reach

I Fantasy
Fantasy
Oh all that you imagine
I can make it happen

I Fantasy
Fantasy
Fantasy -y -y -y -y
Fantasy
Fantasy
Fantasy -y -y -y -y
Fantasy -y -y -y -y
