Lyrics

Don't ever stop, don't ever quit
Don't ever take your love from me
Yes, it's a win, you are my friend
You are the best thing ever happened to me

Don't be afraid, let's play the game
You should know our love will always stay the same

Don't ever stop, don't ever quit
Don't ever take your love from me
Yes, it's a win, you are my friend
You are the best thing ever happened to me

No one could ever come between you and me, baby
Because you're the one a friend should be

And if you should fall, I'll pick you up
Oh sweet baby
As the years go far, you always have me

Don't ever stop, don't ever quit
Don't ever take your love from me
Yes, it's a win, you are my friend
You are the best thing ever happened to me

Don't ever stop, don't ever quit
Don't ever take your love from me
Don't ever stop, don't ever quit
Don't ever take your love from me

Song Production Information

dj TAKA

Right when I started making REINCARNATION, as I was fiddling with a variety of synths to find something unique, I discovered a sound that represented something like an "idol of the past", and I played around with this as if I were playing a song.
Incidentally, as the song's production advanced, I had deemed the sound unnecessary, but we had already entered the final stages.
After we added the vocals, the song gained a surprisingly different, soulful-like aura. Personally, I'm happy I was able to put this type of song into the game. Everyone, please play it often~.
