Trouble with the audio sample?
Miss Mino starts off this song with her beautiful, sensitive piano. Miss Noguchi sings this time. The song depicts our planet GAIA, while Mr. Tousaki's strings meticulously harmonize with the piano.
(GAIA: The earth is itself a huge life form, while every life, air, water, soil, etc. are a part of the organism. [James Lovelock])
(WAAHAY [wa:hei] : Word to express eternal happiness in the Sikh religion.)
—Liner notes to "GAIA" on Final Fantasy: Love Will Grow album

This album of vocal arrangements includes a version of the Final Fantasy main theme named "GAIA". It is sung in Japanese, and it is the fifth track of the album. The word "Waahay" comes from a Sikh mantra that expresses the joy of infinite experience.


Sotto me o tojitara
Mieru sekai ga aru
Mugen ni hirogaru sora
Kokoro no uchigawa ni
Inochi wa kagayaite
Subete wa hitotsu da to
Ima omoidashite
Kodou ga kikoeru
Utsukushii kono hoshi
Kagayaki yo, towa ni!
Gaia, oh, Gaia, waahay...
Michite yuku... ao
Mizu ga nagareru you ni
Kokoro o tokihanatte
Hikari to kaze no naka ni
Tokete yuku utagoe
Ubau koto o yamete
Osore o tebanashite
Ikiru koto no shinjitsu
Kitto tadoritsukeru

English translationEdit
When you close your eyes just so,
There's a world you can see--
The infinitely expanding universe
Within your heart.
Life glitters
And continues to be handed down.
Everything is one--
I can sense that now.
I can hear the beat--
This beautiful planet!
Shine on forever!
Gaia, oh, Gaia...
Filling up... with blue...
Just as water flows,
Let your heart go;
In the light and the wind,
Singing voices dissolve.
Stop your thieving and
Leave your fears behind.
The truth of life
Will surely come to you
When I pray in my heart
For your smiling face,
It's a wave of joy--
Gaia, oh, Gaia...
Filling up... with love...
