I know what you're afraid about Straighten up arms and keep on flapping like birds Fly high... To the place you have never ever seen before Slicker's lip and clumsy kiss Tedious song and childish game Many ants aim at candy box Gold fish is swimming around up side down Faithful dog and naughty kid Rousty bike and ragged shoes Noisy PC gives up tiny works Bookmark is keeping up the end of page Now, the time has come, don't throw away your memories Fly high... You should take courage and fly Straighten up arms and keep on flapping like birds Fly high... To the place you have never ever seen before

Song Production Information
This song is the result of Hiro-san asking me to make a Sana song that would fit her current image. And so for this tune I wrote English lyrics. I hoped Sana liked the song when she listened to the demo tape of the song, and she did, bringing color to the song even during its recording, finishing fairly quickly.
This is a song I could imagine listening to in a quiet room, when the soundtrack and the like come out, but it may not be a tune one could catch so easily in a game center full of loud sounds.
Character bio translations done by narukamikun and enigmaopoeia, and posted by madamluna on the new-defunct bemanistyle forum.

She made the cute clothes with RIE. She is glad the beret fits perfectly too.
