切ない夜の夢 儚く消えるだけ
空を見上げていても 何も変わらないのに・・・


もう一度 あの冬の夜のように



yozora ni ukabu tsuki no hikari ga
anata no kage wo utsushi dashiteta

setsunai yoru no yume hakanaku kieru dake
sora wo miagete ite mo nani mo kawaranai no ni

mou nido to modorenai hibi bakari de
oikakete wa tsunoru omoide tachi

mou ichido ano fuyuu no yoru no you ni
tsuyoku fukaku dakishime aeta nara

aitai to negau kimochi ga hitotsu zutsu
yawaraka na hikari to tomo ni shizunde yuku


The light of the moon floating on the night sky
Cast your shadow before me

My painful dreams at night only vanish momentarily
Even when I look up at the sky, nothing changes...

I can't help chasing after
The memories of days that won't ever return

If only you could hold me close, strongly, again
Like you did on that one winter night ...

Little by little, my longing for you
Sinks into the abyss with that gentle light

Long Version



切ない夜の夢 儚く消えるだけ

Song Production Information


I wondered about what to do with the interlude, so I tried to incorporate a classical song in it.
At that time, I linked "a broken heart fading in the moonlight" with "Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata", and that's how the title was born.
And it's a hidden song which appears in FREE MODE at the location tests, so doesn't it appear and disappear like the moon?

Kanako Hoshino

Tatsh wrote this sorrowful Eurobeat song, but Hoshino hasn't sung a sorrowful song yet, so I wanted to sing this song very much, even though it was difficult for me to express. When I used an accent and sang with too much emotion during the recording, Tatsh instructed me to "try to sing it smoothly", and I sounded more mature and not childish, so I think my voice suited "Gekkou" better by doing this.
I slightly changed how I sing before then, so it was quite difficult for me, but I saw some growth in this song. I was also able to appear in this song's movie, as they took and connected 360 degree individual photos of me in a tram, which isn't like flipping through manga, and I can't properly describe it, but it became quite cool!!! After that, they used handmade props to show an illusionary moonlight, and you can see Tokyo Tower in the background, which is worth seeing \ (~ o ~) /
This song and video are great, and it kills two birds with one stone. Don't miss it☆

Video Production Information


Sorry to bother you again. My name is matsushita from TOKYO SYOKUDO.
I'm graciously honored to suddenly be asked by GOLI to direct a live-action Kanako Hoshino video.

This video was "difficult 'to' film".
... I won't say much.
A suspicious person was standing alone with a tripod somewhere in Tokyo on Christmas Eve at 8:00 p.m., which was crowded with couples and female celebrities.
While I was filming a demo video of the moon rising at a fixed position in a car park on a certain month at 5:00 a.m., some patrolling policemen cheered me on.
A month's worth of filming applications and prepared storyboards became wasted in less than 5 minutes due to various circumstances.
Now they're good memories.

This time, I'm impressed that the lead Hoshino didn't mind lip syncing during filming, and tried very hard to sing with all her heart in "every take".
I told her "you don't need to sing, since you'll be singing many times", but she replied "it feels better when I sing", which moved me to tears.
I felt her professionalism. I'm going to learn from Hoshino.
Thanks to their support, I created a full-size video from the large amount of materials gathered.
I've provided a condensed version of Hoshino's adult charm here.
We unexpectedly reserved a certain floor in Tokyo for 5 nights, and a 2 round-trip on the Tokyo tram for filming.
GOLI and VJ GYO were very helpful during the filming.

Also, it seems you can see examples of other songs where VJ GYO and I filmed while walking with a spinning camera in the front row at the secret LIVE 2 event for around 4 hours. Please try to find them.

The colored lights that illuminated Hoshino were bought at Don Quijote in Shibuya.
