I lost my way in the dark I seek it, but I see it nowhere Then I see the shining polarstar I'll never lose my own way If you are shining like the star in my eyes Lead me by your brilliant light The shining starlight (The shining starlight) I lost my way in the dark I seek it but I see it nowhere Then I just see the shining polarstar I'll never lose my own way If you are shining like the star in my eyes Lead me by your brilliant light
I’m walking down the street in the night How many nights have I been wandering? Feel no more loneliness, still less their tenderness It seems to be flat and boring I’ll go anywhere, I don’t care to lose everything All I wanna know is the reason why I’m me So tell me where to go, give me the power, let me go Now close my eyes and listen carefully I lost my way in the dark I seek it but I see it nowhere Then I just see the shining polarstar I'll never lose my own way If you are shining like the star in my eyes Lead me by your brilliant light 夜の静寂を抜け 彷徨える魂は 行き場のない ぬくもりもない かりそめの幻 失うものは何もなくて 消滅に憧れる夜 瞳とじて 胸とき澄ませば 星が光を放つ 生けるものすべて迷う この世界を 照らしだして polarstar 希望という名の光が絶えないように 導いて はるか遠く The shining starlight 目を逸らしてばかりいた 傷つくのが怖かった 乾いた風を集めて 真実をつかみたくて So tell me where to go, give me the power, let me go Now close my eyes and listen carefully I found my in the light Believe it, I can go anywhere Now I just see the shining polarstar I'll never lose my own way If you are shining like the star in my eyes Lead me by your brilliant light The shining starlight

Song Production Information
The appeal of EPIC TRANCE is its melodious and catchy melodies, or the uplifting feeling created through its sweet melodic vocals and upper-style tracks. In "THE SHINING POLARIS", Sana's dreamy vocals, well-known as the "Diva of KONAMI music games!" who has performed in many BEMANI songs, are matched with the track completing a "crying TRANCE".

"THE SHINING POLARIS" by L.E.D. feat Sana is an excellent trance song. If you love trance music, "THE SHINING POLARIS" is packed with beautiful vocals, uplifting melodies and an awesome atmospheric build-up/breakdown.
Video Production Information
I feel as if I've heard it somewhere before in L.E.D.'s world, but the phrases of this "crying trance" (according to L.E.D.) powerfully strike a chord in your heart, don't they?
I think this "really" is the song's key point, while I also "really" dreamed of being a clubber who went to IBIZA Island, and I tried to create my own image of a "real" Pa○○ ○○n ○○ke song.
The "POLARIS" in the title refers to the North Star.
Yes, it was an important navigator for travelers adventuring in the open seas during the Age of Discovery.
Then, when combined with the title of another L.E.D. new song, "THE BIG VOYAGER", which means "The Adventurer", it seems that L.E.D. was trying to convey BEMANI players the idea of "something" with this new song, right?
