Atarashii asa o mukaetara
Ookiku te o hiroge shinkokyuu

Kinou no kanashii namida o
Taiyou wa wasuresasete kureru

Kondo aeru hi made
Kitto iroiro aru ne
Demo ne sore wa sore de hitsuyou na koto desu

Ippai naitari mo shite
Yatto egao no imi ga
Wakaru youni nareba
Kowai mono nashi da
Sou koko kara arata na SUTAATO (Start) da!!
Yeah!!

San-nen mae to ima kuraberu yori
Juu-nen saki no koto IMEEJI (Image) shitai

Nantonaku sae nai mainichi mo
Ashita ni tsunagatteiru kara

Kondo aeru hi made
Yakusoku wa nai kedo
Demo ne sore wa sore de shou ga nai koto nandesu

Ippai butsukariatte
Han'nin mae no boku ga
Kimi ni yuiitsu dekiru
Koto wa tada hitotsu
Kono ai no uta todokeru koto dake

Itsumo donna toki mo

Datte sore ga boku no takaramono nandesu

Kondo aeru hi made

Ippai naitari mo shite
Yatto egao no imi ga
Wakaru youni nareba
Kowai mono nashi da
Saa koko kara arata na SUTAATO (Start) da!!

When you greet the new morning,
Hold your arms out wide and take a deep breath...

The sun will make you forget
The sad tears you cried yesterday.

A lot of things are sure to happen
By the time we meet again,
But that needs to happen.

You'll cry your heart out,
And then you'll realise
What it means to smile --
And then you'll never be afraid of anything again.
Yes, this is a new start!!
Yeah!!

Instead of comparing now to three years ago,
I want to picture how things will be in 10 years...

Even these kind of depressing days
Are linked to tomorrow.

Until we meet again,
I can't promise anything;
But that can't be helped.

I'm inexperienced,
And keep hitting walls...
There's only one thing
I can do for you,
And that's sing this love song for you.

Show your smile
All the time,
Because it's my treasure.

Until we meet again,
I can't promise anything;
But that's important.

You'll cry your heart out,
And then you'll realise
What it means to smile --
And then you'll never be afraid of anything again.
Yes, this is a new start!!
Yeah!!
Oasis Heart3's Note:
[1] This song title, oddly enough, was written in all hiragana: あいのうた. Usually, the Japanese use kanji: 愛の歌. But again, Van chose to be creative (^^)...and the best way to explain hiragana is by comparing it to "lowecase letters". So...that means the title changes from the usual "Ai no Uta" to "ai no uta".

[2] The instrumental part of this song (starting at 2:19) was used as the main melody of "Koiuta". This is a newer Do As Infinity song that also means "love song".
