(Can you feel the energy?)

I feel that the night is coming now
I gotta move on faster, this can be no disaster
I know that the game is on
And when I start there is no way to return

Feeling the high energy
That rushes through my blood, rushes through my blood
The rhythm takes me higher and it makes me lose control

Ooh, oh, what we love, top the charts
Get a higher level and reach for the stars
Ooh, oh, what we love, top the charts
Get a higher emotion

Ooh, oh, what we love, top the charts
When the arrow's coming and we can go far
Ooh, oh, what we love, top the charts
Tonight is the motion

Song Production Information


Well I always loved NAOKI and the rest of BEMANI, so I wanted to produce a track that would say "DDR & Retro", something that would bring us back to the beginning of the DDR History. So I modeled it after NAOKI and classic DDR sound. So me and my best friend music partner Dave have teamed up for this, along side our wonderful singer Hanna from the famous group!


This one really feels like a signature song for DDR. With the melody line we composed the female vocalist Hanna, who is from the newest album Around the World, truely brings you into the song. When you play this song, you truly feel like you are playing, DDR!


When I was writing the lyrics, I wanted it to inspire and hype the players to play better and feel really positive about themselves and get them to "reach for the stars". The lyrics are about being excited to come home and play your favorite game! So you feel the excitement rushing in your body and you just can't wait to get to a higher level and feel really positive.
