まだ見ぬ明日へと 突き進む勇気が

(We shine our 7Keys)
生まれ変わってゆく この願いが

Don't be afraid myself


Don't be afraid myself
Don't be afraid yourself


mada minu asu e to tsuki susumu yuuki ga 
areba tsuyoku nareru kara

(We shine our 7Keys)
umare kawatte yuku kono negai ga
itsuka kimi ni todoku you ni

Don't be afraid myself
bokura no asu wa
kagayaki tsuzukeru tame dake ni aru
mirai e to hashiri dase

bokura dake ga
mitsumete ita eien wo koete
ima, tobi tatou
mirai e to hashiri dase

Don't be afraid myself
Don't be afraid yourself
kokoro ni hibiku MELODY wa itsuka
kitto kimi wo terasu hikari


You'll have the courage to carry on to that new tomorrow
It will make you stronger

(We shine our 7keys)
Someday this newly reborn dream
Will reach out to you ...

Don't be afraid myself
The future that we'll share
Exists just so we can let it shine,
So run on into the future

Let's stand up and fly
Crossing over that eternity that
We have sought together;
Let's run into the future

Don't be afraid myself
Don't be afraid yourself
Someday, this melody that echoes in your heart
Will be a light that shines down on you

Song Production Information


platoniX has changed members from their beginnings, it's currently a two-member unit, consisting of myself and the vocalist JunkoHirata.

The direct translation of this title is "Don't be afraid of myself".
I think there are many difficult things we have to do in order to live every day.
This includes challenging difficult songs, studying, or working.
When you're afraid, nothing will begin, and nothing will change.
This song was created after I discussed this concept with JunkoHirata.
This is platoniX's unique and powerful cheering song.


After a discussion with Tatsh, the concept is of a "cheering song", and I wrote these lyrics while being conscious of platoniX's unique personality.

There are good and bad things in life.
That's why I want to become strong and cool!
It isn't the sense of achievement when you climb over a high wall.
Yes, that shining appearance is definitely your true self...
I'd be happy if our thoughts are conveyed to everyone.

Lastly, we have Natsumi and Yukari as my backup dancers, which I think resulted in a cool dance number.
By all means, please try to PLAY this song


Video Production Information


This is my first participation in the beatmania series.
When I heard the sound and saw the dance, I wanted to make full use of the material itself.
As a result of trial and error while thinking "how do I show this cool dance!?" and "how do I synchronize this with the music!?", instead of reducing the dance parts by adding effects and image shots, I thought about "showing everything!", and I made full use of the dance as my top priority by filming, editing, & processing it, so how was it?
