Japanese

夜空に浮かぶ月の光が
あなたの影を映し出してた

切ない夜の夢 儚く消えるだけ
空を見上げていても 何も変わらないのに・・・

もう二度と戻れない日々ばかりで
追いかけては募る思い出たち

もう一度 あの冬の夜のように
強く深く抱きしめあえたなら

逢いたいと願う気持ちが一つずつ
柔らかな光とともに沈んでゆく

Romaji

Yozora ni ukabu tsuki no hikari ga
Anata no kage wo utsushi dashiteta

Setsunai yoru no yume hakanaku kieru dake
Sora wo miagete ite mo nani mo kawaranai no ni

Mou nido to modorenai hibi bakari de
Oikakete wa tsunoru omoide tachi

Mou ichido ano fuyuu no yoru no you ni
Tsuyoku fukaku dakishime aeta nara

Aitai to negau kimochi ga hitotsu zutsu
Yawaraka na hikari to tomo ni shizunde yuku

English

The light of the moon floating on the night sky
Cast your shadow before me

My painful dreams at night only vanish momentarily
Even when I look up at the sky, nothing changes...

I can't help chasing after
The memories of days that won't ever return

If only you could hold me close, strongly, again
Like you did on that one winter night ...

Little by little, my longing for you
Sinks into the abyss with that gentle light

Long Version

Japanese


夜空に浮かぶ月の光が
あなたの影を映し出してた

切ない夜の夢 儚く消えるだけ
空を見上げていても
何も変わらないのに

もう二度と戻れない日々ばかりで
追いかけては募る思い出たち
会いたいと願う気持ちが一つずつ
柔らかな光とともに沈んでゆく

どこにもいないあなたを探して
涙は行方見失ってる

悲しい言葉でお互いを傷つけて
孤独になるのなら
素直になればよかった

もう一度あの冬の夜のように
強く深く抱きしめあえたなら
会いたいと願う気持ちが一つずつ
柔らかな光とともに沈んでゆく

動けない私の心は今でも
一人でいることが苦しくて...
お互いに同じ気持ちでいたのなら
戻ることができたのかもしれない
積もっていた雪が溶け出し始めたら
あなたとの出会った季節が訪れる

Song Production Information

TATSH

I had to think of what to do during the interlude.
I wanted to know how I could incorporate the classical song into the music.
I was finally able to link "Beethoven's Moonlight" with the feelings of heartbreak fading away in the light of the moon.
And now this hidden track is able to be played on standard and free mode.
It's like glancing at the moon.

Kanako Hoshino

Tatsh wrote to me saying he wanted to write a eurobeat song for me.
Now I'm not a fan of sad songs, which I cannot describe why, but it's hard for me to sing them.
I sing songs. Sometimes, I put too much emotion into a song, and get carried away.
Tatsh told me to not sing with so much emotion, and instructed me to sing with a more adult tone.
I think he wanted my voice to be like moonlight.
I struggled a lot with this song and received a lot of help, but I think it was a great learning experience.
For this song, I was also filmed for the movie, riding on a tram and being circled 360 degrees by the camera, but not moving at all.
I thought that was really cool!
Then, using props, in order to emphasize the moonlight, I was filmed near the Tokyo Tower, which was really impressive \ (~ o ~) /
This was a good song, and I got to kill two birds with one stone! Don't miss this ☆

Video Production Information

matsushita

Sorry to bother you again. I'm matsushita from Tokyo Syokudo works.
GOLI one day called me and asked if I could direct a movie featuring Kanako Hoshino. It was an honor I could not refuse from a master.

Shooting: "Take up your positions!"
Many... difficulties came up.
With us standing alone filming at 8 PM on Christmas Eve with a tripod in the middle of a metropolitan area, we looked like a celebrity couple or a pair of suspicious people.
For the recorded part at the parking lot, it took five hours of filming on the first of the month in order for the moon to climb up to the right position, up until the dawn, with the chill in the air, to get the one scene right. We also were followed by groups of male fans and police while traveling.
Even with the latest filming technology, it seemed a waste to condense a month's worth of filming into a five minute montage and prepare a storyboard for further editing of the film.
But now, I have good memories of the shoot.

Hoshino was very impressive, even though the shoot was hard on her, her mouth, and vocal cords.
I remember her saying "I've sung the song so many times now."
I responded "I want to feel your emotions!" with tears in my eyes.
She was very professional throughout and was a quick learner.
The substantial amount of work she did helped to make the filming easier for me.
This definitely will increase her popularity.
We also filmed on the Tokyo 5 train, taking two round trips in order to get the shot right.
GOLI helped me a lot with the filming, and I also received assistance from VJ GYO.

In addition, VJ GYO helped for filming for four hours for one of the scenes.
Some of the scenes that he filmed also are in parts of two other song movies. Please look for them.

One other note, while we were looking at the colored lights of Shibuya, Hoshino bought a copy of Don Quixote.
