Shadow world - and we're all running round to find ourselves;
Mad old world -so can you tell me who I am?
Shallow world - but can you tell me where to find my future - Show me how to shine!

Bring in the morning-where?
Sing in the morning-here!

I'm racing -see, the stormy skies are much lighter now
Riding on the wings of a nnew tomorrow;
Chasing the dark away - it's much brighter now,
Hiding where you see the future glow.

Dancing on the breeze of another day,
Where the music takes me l'll surely follow;
Linger if you please for some other day-
I'm set up to join in this show.

Pause just a moment,
Wait,while I dim the lights, adjust the sound;
Just for a moment
Pause, so I can review the situation.
Now in this moment
See-all potentiality come cluster round.

Ooh- we'll make it happen;
Ooh-we'll make it.

To be honest, when I was first asked to sing for this song, I was really surprised. Singing fast and rhythmically is exactly my weakest point,
so my immediate reaction was “are you sure you want ME to sing this?!”

I arrived at the studio, mentally prepared to be told off and made to retake over and over again due to bad, unrhythmical singing.
But at the recording, by some miracle, the words and rhythm poured out of my mouth with such ease and I found myself totally enjoying myself,
hearing my vocals becoming part of this energetic song.
I am very grateful to “Shadow World” for the refreshing experience and for giving me new confidence in speedy singing!
I sincerely hope that players will feel uplifted and energized by this song and that I may be allowed to sing for Beatmania again in the future!
