oh Love Love Love......
oh Love Love Love......

Kazedachinu yuugure no sora ni muke utau
(I sing facing the windless evening sky)
Sorya roku demo naku poppu nante mono demo naku

Mashite hitto no kizashi mo nai
(Not to mention no signs of becoming a hit)
Tada anata e to omoi wo hashiraseta
Tanjunmeikaina Love Song

that sent my thought to you)

Hodou ni sotte shiawasesou ni
Arukidashita koibito tachi wo
Urayamu you ni tataeru you ni
(As if envying and extoling
The lovers who started walking
Along the paved street, looking blissful)
Sotto kimi wo matteiru
(I am quietly waiting for you)

Hitomae de naita koto no nai Sonna tsuyokina anata demo
(Even you who are so strong that you have never cried in front of people)
Zetsubou no fuchi ni tatte mayou hi mo aru deshou
(Have days when you hesitate standing in the depths of despair, right?)
Yume ni kakaru niji no hashi
(The rainbow bridge hanging in your dream)
Kobou no hikari no ya

Ai wo tsutsumu oorora no kaaten
(The curtain of aurora that enfolds love)
Sono subete ga usoppachi ni miete Jibun wo miushinau you na toki wa

Sou negau kyou kono goro desu
