Album / Collection: HO-KAGO TEA TIME Second Track # 8
Description: Insert Song
Written by Yui Hirasawa Composed, Arranged by Hiroyuki Maezawa Performed by Houkago Tea Time (Aki Toyosaki as Yui Hirasawa, Youko Hikasa as Mio Akiyama, Satomi Satou as Ritsu Tainaka, Minako Kotobuki as Tsumugi Kotobuki, Ayana Taketatsu as Azusa Nakano)
There are many ways to interpret the song title from the surface, but obviously as we saw from events in Episode 17, it is an allusion to the name of Yui's little sister Ui.
Other interpretations include:
You and I
Yui herself (English "You" + Japanese "I")
'yuuai', "partnerly love" (Japanese phonetic interpretation of the English letters)
Even 'utoi', "estranged" (Replacing & with 'to', Japanese particle for "and").
My own overly-fanciful suggestion is to take the on-reading of Ui's name kanji (憂, 'yuu', "grief"), add it with the radical for 'person' (as the "I") which will become 優, the kanji for "gentleness", Ui's character in whole. (This is ultimately why Ui was given that "depressing" kanji as her name in the first place, she "warms up to people around her").
 Literally "Oh feelings, be known!". I put my own artistic touch in.
