Ai Oboete Imasu Ka; Do You Remember Love?

OAV Theme Song

Sung by: Iijima Mari
Lyrics: Kazumi Yasui
Composer: Kazuhiko Katou
Arrangement: Nobuyuki Shimizu

Romaji Lyrics English Translation
Ima anata no koe ga kikoeru
"Koko ni oide" to
Samishisa ni makesouna watashi ni
Ima anata no sugata ga mieru
Aruite kuru
Me wo tojite matte iru watashi ni
Right now, I hear your voice
saying "Come here to me."
Just when it seemed loneliness had beaten me.
Right now, I see you
walking over to me.
I close my eyes and wait for you to come.
Kinou made namida de kumotteta
Kokora wa ima...
Till yesterday, it seemed filled only with tears.
But now my heart is
* Oboete imasu ka  me to me ga atta toki wo
  Oboete imasu ka  te to te ga fureatta toki
  Sore wa hajimete no ai no tabidachi deshita
* Do you remember? The time when our eyes first met?
  Do you remember? The time when our hands first touched?
  That was the very first time I set out on the journey of love.
  I love you so.
Ima anata no shisen kanjiru
Karada-juu ga atatakaku naru no
Ima anata no ai shinjimasu
Douzo watashi wo
Tooku kara mimamotte kudasai
Right now, I can feel your gaze
though you're not here with me.
And in my body a warmth begins to glow.
Right now, I believe in your love,
so won't you please
watch over me from so far away?
Kinou made namida de kumotteta
Sekai wa ima...
Till yesterday it seemed filled only with tears.
Now the world is...
Repeat *
Repeat *
** Mou hitoribotchi ja nai
   anata ga iru kara...
** I'm not alone anymore
   now that you're here with me.
Repeat *
Repeat *
Repeat **
Repeat **

One of my favorites. Too bad the licensing is so snarled. I would love a Region 1 DVD of this. Glad I shelled out for the R2 DVD. No subs, but I know that movie so well I don't really need them.

Yeah, I have a few copies, still in various boxes. One is the uncut English dub, which I think was released in the UK, then I got a NTSCified version on VHS. :-) I think I have the R2 DVD, not sure, maybe I'm thinking of Flashback 2012.
