Reach out your hands to the clouds
Cast away
'Cause there's light in your soul
And it's fraught with possibilities

There always comes some times
When everything is down
And it seems hard to find
Of the path to get a place of hope
When whether dreams come true comes reality 

Keep your head up and try to harbor a spirit
Right and you'll get a place up in the sky
And fly high

So reach out to the clouds
Try to cast wear aside
Trust your heart and your soul
See the day that it's coming through

Song Production Information


Hello. Is it still DJ.W? I want to change it anyways.
I was given this false name by clever people.
I have nothing to do with a disc-spinning job in the first place.
So I don't want to say what DJ stands for even if I die.

It's been approximately 2 years since I properly wrote a song, but with the help of Lala Moore and many others, I was able to create wonderful memories. I'm grateful.
The topic wasn't addressed at all, but my personal favorite part was the chorus by Mori no ki jidou gasshoudan.
The part where them with the older lady are singing "turu-turu" together.
When I missed the final train of the day as usual and walked home in approximately 4 hours (how stupid of me), I thought "It's a dangerous world in many ways, so let's create a happy song"
"I hope children will enjoy living in the 21st century!"
Were all examples of thoughts which led me to decide on adding a children's choir in the song.
Since it's called a children's choir, my initial impression included boys and girls, but I only saw junior high school girls gathered when I went to the studio.
I was nervous if they called me a fraud while I was waving a conductor's batons and said "Three, now".
Although I'm becoming old and completely worn out, I had the illusion that these lost, pure feelings were restored.
Let's all have that illusion while humming and playing this song.

Clouds. YUZ acquired the still-images from Guam for the first time.
Of course he used them without permission.
The winged person. When I listened to the song, a chicken came across my mind....
Turuturu = Clucking.

Although I'm becoming old and completely worn out, I had the illusion that some lost, pure feelings were restored, but they were illusions after all.
I could only picture a chicken in my head....
