Once upon a time, there was a little young boy He was walking, along the road like stranger Dreaming one day he'd be a big man He'll keep trying, try and reach for the sky He gets lost the more that he tries, why oh why He feels all the pain, why oh why 'Cause the babies cry when there's few to feed the world He gets lost the more that he tries, why oh why He feels all the pain, why oh why 'Cause a woman's still up safe when she's filled with love
Endless nights Will almost fade away Whole new sky I'm ready to go higher In your universe I sparkle You hve shown me what it means to be ♡ I'm a prince on a star that only shines when you look at me I hope you notice my light Cuz for you I burn my soul You reflect like a mirror The good inside me Am I worth to do The same for you? Now I stand On top of my fate Just to street it Towards wherever you are ♡♡ I'm a prince on a star As long as you Make me be one It's your call to overthrow me But princess You're too sweet for that If I see you Drown in darkness I will flash To burn the shadows away ♡refrain ♡♡refrain
なんだか切ない夜には そばにいて 髪を撫でながら まっさらな空に 二人の星座 描くの なぜだか眠れぬ夜には 聞かせてよ 夢物語を ヒツジを数えて 朝陽 迎えないように どんなお願いも どうか叶えてね でなきゃ魔法かけて 月に帰るわ きらめく流れ星にだって いつの日か終わりってくるのかな? あなたの瞳が 答えを映し出してる "いつも いつの日も 僕がいる限り 君を照らすのさ 誰より強く" 気付いているのよ あなたは星の王子さま 何億光年も越えて 逢いに来て 光のスピードで 雲を突き抜け この広い宇宙で 二人ここにいる あの日出逢ったのは 運命なのね

Song Production Information
This alternative rock song is another crossover from IIDX.
Playing 2P on this song is like playing in a band, so get together with someone and give it a try.
This is a refreshing UK pop soul song which feels appropiate in the UK dance charts.
The clear vocals, refreshing and simple distorted guitars, create an extremely nice British rock sound complemented by a mute guitar-styled chorus, and various acid analog sounds.
Video Production Information
It's almost embarrassing how romantic I ended up making the video.
10 out of 10 people thought that it was a girl in the above background... I intended for it to be a boy.
I had this weird determination to make the prince have a bob haircut.
Feel free to try and imagine your own unique story by cobbling the various pieces of art together.
For example, what if the wolf boy that appears mid-song is actually the prince?
