Japanese

降りはじめた雪に包まれながら
伝えたいよ  こんな想い  say I'm sorry

あれからいくつも季節が過ぎて  前髪もかなり伸びた
少し大人びてるわたしを見せたいから
まっすぐに見つめたい  正直に伝えたい
同じ罪  くり返しては  傷つけた夏の日々を
悔やんだこと

降りだした雪に包まれながら
あの日のままの君が今  近づいてく
振り向いたその笑顔まぶしくて
消えそうなわたしをぎゅっと
抱きしめていて  white love

Romaji

furihajimeta yuki tsutsumare nagara
tsutaetai yo konna omoi say I'm sorry

are kara ikutsu mo kisetsu ga sugite maegami mo kanari nobita
sukoshi otonabiteru watashi wo misetai kara
massugu ni mitsumetai shoujiki ni tsutaetai
onajitsumi kurikaeshite wa kizutsuketa natsu no hibi wo
kuyanda koto

furidashita yuki ni tsutsumare nagara
ano hi no mama no kimi ga ima chikazuiteku
furimuita sono egao mabushikute
kiesou na watashi wo gyutto
dakishimeteite white love

Long Version

Japanese


降りはじめた雪に包まれながら
伝えたいよ こんな想い
Say I'm sorry

粉雪の舞う公園通り
二人よくきた散歩道
行きつけのテラスも
今は閉じたまま

あれからいくつも
季節(とき)が過ぎて
前髪もかなり伸びた
少し大人びてる
わたしを見せたいから

まっすぐに見つめたい
正直に伝えたい
同じ罪 くり返しては
傷つけた夏の日々を
悔やんだこと

*降りだした雪に包まれながら
あの日のままの君が今
近づいてく
振り向いた その笑顔まぶしくて
消えそうなわたしをぎゅっと
抱きしめていて


逢えない日々が
教えてくれた
かけがえのない宝物
気付かず居たなんて
何を見ていたんだろう

もう何も迷わない
もう二度と悔やまない
打ち明けた その瞬間に
ひとしずく 涙キラリ
こぼれ落ちた

舞い降りた雪は雨に変わって
あの日からの距離をそっと
つないでゆく
焼き付けたその笑顔優しくて
泣きそうなわたしをずっと
つかまえていて


* refrain
わたしをぎゅっと
抱きしめていて
White Love

Song Production Information

Tomoaki Hirono

It is Tomoaki Hirono, the composer of WHITE LOVERS.
This song was originally written for pop'n music GB.
It powered up and became a vocal song to appear in "7".
I am pleased that its re-appearance came out pretty cute.
pop'n music GB was also released in the winter (it was quite a while ago), pop'n music 7 also started in winter, isn't it a perfect song for this season?

Hitoshi Ozawa

Hello everyone. I'm in charge of the arranging, composer/arranger/music critic Mr. Hitoshi Ozawa.
This song originated on the Game Boy, which had a small amount of organized sounds, so I made the sound of this song while thinking about Hirono.

Character Information

shio

Because it is winter pop, we prepared a white long coat that looks warm. By the way, that's not a hat on her head, but a coat hood...

Since the song was vividly upgraded from GB to AC, I thought it would be fun to do the same for the character as well. So I took inspiration from SANAE♥chan's animation from pop'n 1 through 5 and tried to reconfigure them. Do you know which version was used?
