I feel in my heart like desert rain.
I wipe your pain and break your fear.
太陽が差した場所へStep on your mind.


ame wa agari yagate subete ga hajimatte yuku.
nanika ga hikiawaseta michishirube wo tadoru you ni.
PUZZLE no piece wo awaseru you ni sagashiteita kimi to naraba
doredake no kyori wo aruitetemo norikoe rareru darou.

I feel in my heart like desert rain.
kawaita daichi ni furisosogu ame no you ni sotto
I wipe your pain and break your fear.
egaku ranhansha shita gensou wo nanairo no hikari ni kaete
taiyou ga sashita basho he Step on your mind.

Reiji Sakurai

Nice to meet you here in Gitadora.
My name is Reiji Sakurai. This is finally my first time in Gitadora. The image of "Desert rain" is just like rain falling in the desert, moistening your dry heart!!
I remember I struggled with the guitar solo in the second half of this song... it took a long time because the notes didn't overlap well.
The other thing to listen to are the lyrics, which tell a story.
Two people who have been walking on different paths, but now they are walking together on the same single path... such romantic lyrics... enjoy this sweet and sad hard middle rock song!

Video Production Information


I'm MAYA from IIDX.
I was given the opportunity to roll the camera during the recording session of Reiji Sakurai.
I was nervous because I couldn't make any noise during the recording!
I tried to express Reiji's thoughts and feelings in the lyrics through illustrations.
I hope that made easier to convey them.
