First Music Game Appearance: beatmania IIDX 15 DJ TROOPERS
Other Music Game Appearances: None.
星屑の砂漠 繋いで歩いた 夢に 埋もれたいって思うと I PROMISE FOR LIFE 声にならない時でも せめて｢愛してる｣と 伝えたい ずっと 探し続けた 幾夜 絶望に暮れた 今 こんなに 涙 溢れるのは 君が見せてくれた 奇跡 星屑の砂漠 二人を照らして 夢を 永遠へと変えてゆく I PROMISE FOR LIFE 君が隣にいるから 遥か遠い未来が 眩しい 両手に 掬い切れなくて 指の隙間から 零れ落ちる 欠片達 それでも最後に 一つ残された結晶を 胸に抱いて 歩いてゆこう

Song Production Information
I like old ballads.
R&B ballads, especially ones from the 90s, have a place in my heart.
At that time, they really appealed to me.
In the past, I've made some ballads for these games, but they never really seemed to fit in.
So yes, the challenge for TЁЯRA was to make one.
I think a lot a people were surprised by this?
Above all, a ballad allows me to express my feelings.
How do these words do that....
This is my first ballad in IIDX.
Is this a surprise to you?
This song is another one in NAOKI's body of work.
When I listened to a demo of it, the warm and gentle melodies grabbed my attention.
I imagined myself in front of a landscape.
Light, pale clouds... a fantastic location.
Whiteness surrounds the rest of the landscape.
In it, we walk hand in hand.
Silence, except for the echo of out footsteps.
I thought this area would be in a desert.
I imagined two people, pledging their eternal love together.
This image, which I tried to keep in my mind, helped me in writing the lyrics.
...by the way, the title, PROMISE FOR LIFE...
...doesn't really have a meaning to it.
It was a bit of a "trick". It was a first attempt for people to solve it.
Surely, it was a surprise to you.
