朝の光 許さないで 繰り返す 真夏の夢 名前なんて聞きたくない 裸足で踊らせて 入れ替わりの影が揺れる 乾いた砂の上 口移しで分け合う 秘密のマティーニ 知らないトリップさせてあげる こらえきれず咲き乱れて 舞い上がれ 真夏の花 朝の光 許さないで 繰り返す 真夏の夢

Song Production Information
I think I've been with Sho-chan ever since "Sekai wa watashi de mawatteru!?" in pop'n.
I was asked for something sexy~, so I came up with these lyrics.
Sho-chan's chorus was included this time, and I was surprised once again! It was very good.
This was the first time someone else's chorus was included in my songs, so the result had a different flavor from my harmonies as well.
The intro and outro once again contains vocals requested by Sho-chan too, so listen them carefully~.
I previously asked for Sana to sing a "cute" song, so this time, let's go with the "sexy~" route.
We're both adults, after all (laughs).
Sana's singing is becoming better with each recording, right? I'm honestly in love with it.
I also love the lyrics, "which are slightly enka-like" but still cool.
I also tried my best in the chorus. I wanted it to overlap with Sana's vocals once, so it was heavily layered. (By around 160%)
Everyone, please enjoy this summer with a slightly mature feeling.
