This Love

“Ai ga areba heiwa da” to

Dareka ga kuchi ni shiteita

Unazuku hito mo ireba

Utagau hito mo iru

Kurushimi ga aru kara koso

Anata wo dakishimeru toki

Sono ude no yasashisa wo

Heiwa to kanjiru no deshou

Aru toki kara mukuchi ni nari

kokoro wo shimekiri

Kono koi ga

hikisakare sou ni natta

*Kasaneta kono te wo

Kondo wa hanasanai

Shinjiru chikara ga

Ai wo jiyuu ni suru

Yuujou ni sukuwaretari

Mirai wo souzou shitari

Shiawase wa mieru kedo

Jibun wo miru koto wa nai

Yakusoku to iu watashi-tachi no

KONPASU dakedewa

Kono koi wa hougaku wo

miushinau no

**Kiseki wo matsu yori

Kono te wo tsunagitai

Shinjiru chikara ga

Watashi wo jiyuu ni suru

Kono koi wo osorezu ni

You don’t have to fear this love,

this love

*repeat

**repeat

Both the lyrics and the music of this song were written by Angela Aki herself. I really like this song because it is about not fearing love, and taking risks all in the name of love. The first two lines “’Ai ga areba heiwa da’ to, dareka ga kuchi ni shiteita” literally means “Someone once said that ‘If you have love, you have peace’”. So the song talks about that when you love, you also create peace (though there IS a kind of love that creates discord, trust me). The speaker of the song is telling someone to love freely, and don’t be afraid of love. The phrase “Ai wo jiyuu ni suru” literally means “Love freely”.

“Kono koi wo osorezu ni” literally means “You don’t have to fear this love” which is immediately followed by its English translation. I think that’s the central core of the song, to sum it all up.

This song is one of the ending songs of the anime Blood+.
