Daikanshuu no ame no kyougijou
Bokura futatabi tsudou
Hatasu beki koto tashika ni aru to
Atsuki omoi o mune ni

Aisubeki mono-tachi wa
Kiseki no hi machi tsudzuketa
Hisoka ni

Motto tsuyoku tsuyoku natte
Yume no tsudzuki o saa hajimeyou
Yukou yo tomo yo mayoi o sutete
Dokomademo tsudzuiteku bokura no michi o

Moshimo futatabi tsukare hatete
Arukenakunatte shimattara
Kondo wa kimi o katsuide demo
Yakusoku no chi o mezasu

Unmei ya shukumei wa
Kaete yukeru to shinjiteirunda

Motto takaku jibun o koete
Eien no hi o mamori tsudzukeyou [1]
Yukou tomo yo mayoi o sutete
Dokomademo tsudzuiteku bokura no michi o

Motto tsuyoku tsuyoku natte
Yume no tsudzuki o saa hajimeyou
Yukou tomo yo mayoi o sutete
Dokomademo tsudzuiteku bokura no michi o

Boku wa nido to furikaeranai [3]
Eien no hi o mamori tsudzukeyou [1]
Yukou tomo yo mayoi o sutete
Dokomademo tsudzuiteku bokura no michi o

Dokomademo yukou tomo yo (x3)


We gather again
At the crowded stadium in the rain,
With passion in our hearts,
And the knowledge that there is something we must do...

The people we love
Have been waiting for this miracle day
In secret.

Be stronger, stronger --
Come on, let's start the rest of the dream.
Let's go, my friend; let's throw away our hesitation
And walk this road of ours that goes on forever.

If once again you become so exhausted
That you can no longer walk,
This time we'll get to the place where we promised we'd go,
Even if I have to carry you.

I believe
That fate and destiny can be changed...

Higher, surpass yourself --
Let's protect this eternal flame. [1]
Let's go, my friend; let's throw away our hesitation
And walk this road of ours that goes on forever.

Be stronger, stronger --
Come on, let's start the rest of the dream!
Let's go, my friend; let's throw away our hesitation
And walk this road of ours that goes on forever.

We'll never look back again; [3]
Let's protect this eternal flame. [1]
Let's go, my friend; let's throw away our hesitation
And walk this road of ours that goes on forever.

Let's go all the way, my friend... (x3)
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[!!] As of December 2009, this song has an "official" English translation! You can read it on this page of avex/Do As Infinity's site!

[1] The song's title (焔) is officially "Honoo" (avex confirmed it!), even though the word 焔 is read/sung as "hi" (pronounced "hee") in the lyrics. (^^) As a side note, the lyrics say "eien no hi", which means "eternal flame". Also, these lyrics talk directly about their 2005 breakup (as well as their first "reunion" concert in 2008, which was held in the rain). Another new song, "Boku-tachi no 10th Anniversary", has a similar message.

     ...Both of these songs seem to be a continuation of "TAO", too. ^^

[2] SHINPEI is one of the 2009 "Do! Creative!!" winners. (^^) "Do! Creative" is a contest where fans from all over the world can create music for Do As Infinity.

[3] It sounds like she's saying "furikaerade" (instead of "furikaeranai"). I'm not sure if that makes sense, or if Van made a mistake. Once Kiwi Musume translates the lyrics, I'll let you know.
