Japanese

優しい香りがする 澄んだ空が続く
人はこの土地をまるで 楽園のようと言う

でも君だけは 遠い未知の国を望む
険しい旅路でもいい 迷わず連れ去って

君だけを愛し続けてゆく事 選んだから
羽が擦り切れて折れる日まで 翔ばたきたい

そう 心塞いで 羽を閉ざして ただ祈って待つより
命の限り真実を探す 君と生きてゆきたい

苦悩の闇 混迷の渦を 幾つ飛び越えた先
最後に君と辿り着く場所 そこが ――――――――「楽園」になる

English

A gentle scent, a clear sky spread out
People say that this land is like Eden

But you, you wish for an unknown land afar
No matter how difficult journey, please don't hesitate to take me away

Because I chose to keep on loving you, only you
To flap my wings and fly until the day they are torn and broken

Yes, rather than shutting myself in, with my wings closed and wait as I pray
You will search for the truth for as long as your life lasts, I want to spend my life with you

Agonizing darkness, swirls of chaos, up ahead after flying over them
That place you and I reach in the end, that will be ―――――――― "EDEN"

険しい旅路でもいい 迷わず連れ去って

君だけを愛し続けてゆく事 決めたから
羽が擦り切れて折れる日まで 翔ばたきたい

そう 心塞いで 羽を閉ざして ただ祈って待つより
どこかにある真実を探す 君と生きてゆきたい

English


A pleasant fragrance hangs on the breeze as the weather clears again
People say that this land is "just like paradise"

But, you're the only one who dreams about roads to far-off places
It's a difficult journey, but that's okay; it carries you away without hesitation

Because I decided to keep loving only you,
I want to keep flying on until the day my wings wear down and break

Yes, rather than closing my heart and folding my wings, just praying and waiting,
I'll search for reality which should be somewhere so that I can be with you

When I've crossed over the darkness of distress and confusion so many times
To finally meet you, in the end ... that place will become my "eden"

Long Version

Japanese


優しい香りがする 澄んだ空が続く
人はこの土地をまるで
楽園のようと言う

でも君だけは
遠い未知の国を望む
険しい旅路でもいい
迷わず連れ去って

君だけを愛し続けてゆく事
選んだから
羽が擦り切れて折れる日まで
翔ばたきたい

遥か豊潤な土地
満たし切れぬ思い
揺れる君の眼差しに
「帰らない」と告げた

灰色の海 樹海の森
迷う時が来ても
象られた未来図には
置いて行かないで

君だけを愛し続けてゆく事
選んだから
羽が擦り切れて折れる日まで
翔ばたきたい

そう 心塞いで 羽を閉ざして
ただ祈って待つより
命の限り真実を探す
君と生きてゆきたい

君だけを愛し続けてゆく事
選んだから
力尽きて眠りにつくまで
傍に居させて・・・・!

苦悩の闇 混迷の渦を
幾つ飛び越えた先
最後に君と辿り着く場所
そこが ――――――――『楽園』になる

La la la la la
I chose to spend my life with you
La la la la la
I want to fly away and reach the truth,
・・・・ the one and only truth

English


A gentle scent, a clear sky spread out
People say that this land is like Eden

But you, you wish for an unknown land afar
No matter how difficult journey, please don't hesitate to take me away

Because I chose to keep on loving you, only you
To flap my wings and fly until the day they are torn and broken

An abundant land extending into the distance, an unsatisfied heart
To your trembling gaze, I told you "I'm not coming home"

A grey ocean, a sea of trees, if a time comes when we are lost
Don't leave me in a shaped vision of the future

Because I chose to keep on loving you, only you
To flap my wings and fly until the day they are torn and broken

Yes, rather than shutting myself in, with my wings closed and wait as I pray
You will search for the truth for as long as your life lasts, I want to spend my life with you

Because I chose to keep loving you, only you
Let me be by your side until I lose all my strength and fall asleep ・・・・!

Agonizing darkness, swirls of chaos, up ahead after flying over them
That place you and I reach in the end, that will be ―――――――― "EDEN"

La la la la la
I chose to spend my life with you
La la la la la
I want to fly away and reach the truth, ・・・・ the one and only truth

Song Production Information

Because I want to see the "truth" you're looking for, together with you ────

Directly chasing something may actually be the most difficult thing to do.
It may be easier to feel hurt when you believe in something without giving up at any moment.
That's why people give up and call the familiar scenery around them "Eden".

".... I want to find the real Eden."

The color of the sky.
The scent of the wind.
The warmth of the earth.
The singing voices unconsciously heard everywhere.....

Your own "EDEN" is surely sleeping somewhere.
When you arrive.... take my hand and let's laugh.

NAOKI MAEDA

It's natural for an artist to be able to create music that only you can do, which is why TЁЯRA as a unit exists.
Various elements overlap among the songs included in the beatmaniaIIDX series, but with "EDEN", I'm strongly conscious that it's "music" which genuinely makes you feel great, and it was completed with our individual personality.

TЁЯRA's original genre "HYPER J-POP" reflects the "current" sound we should be aiming for, and that's achieved with "EDEN".

Video Production Information

GOLI

This is TЁЯRA's greatest number, the strongest unit with another different melody to "DoLL". TЁЯRA's album is also selling well. I'm also honored to be in charge of this song. I listened to it the most during the production period. It's a masterpiece in HAPPY SKY.

Like with DoLL, I'm obsessed with one thing when making movies for TЁЯRA's songs. As you may have noticed, many movies I make use motion typography, but TЁЯRA's songs don't use typography except for the title text. I didn't include lyrics, English letters, or any text, except for in the title section. I personally like doing this, as if you add detailed sentences, it has wide movements and fashionable design. But I won't do this here. I need to try my best to answer TЁЯRA's songs they've worked hard on. I stubbornly only drew animations for it, so it has my own individuality.

The theme for the designers this time is to prepare materials for all the new songs in some way. So, I had to create for more songs than I've done before. Also, this time I was very busy with promotional illustrations, results, and commissioned management (VJ GYO was in charge of most songs. I only had three.). I really regret finishing EDEN's partially drawn illustrations until the very end, and editing them in three days. But, thanks to the enthusiastic support of the programmer WASYA and designer HES, I somehow barely finished it on time. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank them. Thank you very much.

※If it wasn't for the leader HES' shoulder massage, I honestly wouldn't have completed it (laughs).
