Lyrics

(I always wanna be with you my raspberry heart...)

"Yeah, c'mon, let's go!"

You knew you went straight for my heart
I maybe unsure and I have to begin
Right back from the start
A little bit lonely, it makes me want to cry
You give me strength right through to my heart
You only had to give me that one special sign
You know I'll be there for you my raspberry heart

"You know I'll be there for you, ooh..."

I couldn't be able to keep up with you
Why I kept always being left behind
I never wanted to say goodbye
But you said you'd stay for awhile
But right now I wanna be with you forever and ever

"I tell you it's so true"

Make our colors shine once again
Our hearts will fly to take us right up to the sky
Higher and higher, you bring out the fire in me
Every second of anytime, anyplace, anywhere
Always for you, don't you know that it's so true
I'll always be there for you my raspberry heart

Raspberry heart...

Song Production Information

jun

This song first appeared on pop'n music 10 as an instrumental version about a year ago.
So, what has happened in a year?

Raspberry Heart "Vocal version" (V-RARE SOUNDTRACK 6)

"509 version" (pop'n live4)

"English Version"

As a matter of fact, I've been surprised the most at the success of this song.
I really am appreciative to everyone for this.

So, for the English version, Paula Terry did the singing.
I remember NAOKI's introduction for both of us (Laughs)
Paula said that she was happy to do this, especially since it was a cold day outside.
I sang the song to give her an idea of how the song went, and she soon followed along.
We both sang well together.
... After a while, we both completed the song.
Do you think that this song has Paula's touch to it?
The vocals for me were changed a bit, so it sounds a bit more adult.

Incidentally, beatmania IIDX lists me as one of the composers for this song.
This is the second song that I have put in IIDX, after Sweet Sweet ♥ Magic
... The thing is, for both songs, I've been credited as just jun (laughs). But I do appreciate this.
If you do come to play, play these songs in a row. (laughs)
This song will make you feel happy and warm during the cold winter.
