  • Lyrics By, Composed By – Ishii Rika


Ishii had this to say about the single:

"This is the song I wrote first when I decided to start writing again. I wrote it after having turned off the lights in my room and just watched the moonl ight. The melody within me, who’s born in this country Japan, just became a song… kinda! It’d make me really happy if it would reach your hearts as well!"[1]
