Lyrics

Cool bed

Do you really think love can save you?
I never choose a party in your stupid game
Do you really think love can save you?
I don't know what you're lookin' for

My heart is on fire but my blood is frozen

Everybody loves me but you
Love me my dear But just don't touch
Everybody loves me but you
And a broken heart is all I got

Cool bed

Do you really think love can save you?
I never choose a party in your stupid game
Do you really think love can save you?
I don't need this no more

Everybody, -verybody, -verybody
Everybody, -verybody

Everybody loves me but you
Love me my dear. But just don't touch
Everybody loves me but you
And a broken heart, broken heart is all I got

So tell it, girls
Yo, I don't need this no more

Cool bed

Song Production Information

HIDEKI NAGANUMA

In my teenage years, I listened to a lot of 80s Eurobeat, which really influenced my musical style.
So, hearing that the musical style was making a comeback, I decided to make a Neo 80s song to my taste.
While I wanted to express a feeling of nostalgia, I also wanted to use modern musical creations and arrangements.
I used the key of A minor to express the feeling of loneliness, and then change it to the major key only for a moment.
The four lines in the chorus, particularly the line in the chorus "Broken Heart", work really well with the rhythm of the song.
I think that I have finished a suitable song for a music game like beatmania IIDX 20.

Video Production Information

NAGI

From the moment that I heard this song, I was impressed and felt drawn towards it.
Whoa, I think it was very cool!
So I started to imagine what animation to make and I kept thinking about a character battling against an enemy winning and losing....
And as the story started to come together, I started becoming more excited and said "Yes! Let's make an animation!"
And the results....

Animators are gods (-゛-;)

Well...Ummm.....
I really wanted to do more for the animation than what I could actually put in the actual movie, so next time, I'll try to be more devoted to my work.
