見上げた この青空の色が眩しすぎて

小さな出来事 ひとつで


夢の続きがあるなら 迷わずに飛び出そう
両手を空にかざして 心のドアを開けて


miageta kono aozora no iro ga mabushi sugite
wasure kaketa daiji na mono sae
bokura ni kizukasete kureta ne

me no mae ni hirogaru sekai wa
chiisana dekigoto hitotsu de
kawatte yuku kara...

fuki nukeru kaze wo ukete
ano sora no mukou e
yawaraka na kaze ga kyou mo
bokura wo surinukete

yume no tsuzuki ga aru nara mayowazu ni tobi dasou
ryoute wo sora ni kazashite kokoro no doa wo akete
asu wo mitsumete aruite yukou

Song Production Information


I'm not a DJ, a remixer, or an arranger.
As a composer, I included the feelings I want to convey in this song.
"A song where I can just convey a bit of my feelings"
I'd be happy if you like it.

Sayaka Minami(BeForU)

I'm Sayaka Minami, who sings "Under the Sky" with platoniX!!
If I had one word to describe this song.... it's refreshing!! Refreshing!! Refreshing!! That's right.
It's really refreshing when I listen to it, and it refreshes my heart!! This song makes me feel that.

Tatsh's song perfectly suits the image of HAPPYSKY, and I immediately became addicted to JunkoHirata's "Under the Sky" lyrics.
The "platoniX" duo made a great pair once again!! That's what I think.

Sayaka Minami was able to appear together with platoniX in IIDX, and was very happy.
When something bad happens, or you're feeling worried and uneasy, this song will refresh your feelings!!
Please enjoy HAPPY SKY while experiencing this refreshing feeling (o^-^o)♪

Video Production Information


I made this MOVIE from the request "please make it using the secret LIVE footage".
I'm always excited by live filming, since you can't refilm it later or make any mistakes.
This time, a problem was that there wasn't a Tatsh cut, and he said "I didn't appear in it~" m(>_<m)
I quickly tried to connect videos of other songs. Does this sound familiar to you?

Even though it's titled "Under the Sky", the live footage somehow was pitch black, so I tried to create an image of a "live performance in the heavens!" by adding cut-in sky footage.
