Summary of lyrics

There are thousands of brightening stars in the galaxy sea
Many creatures the stars weave are
Dyed in indigo above the night sky
They disappear and they are gleaming again

Invited to the stars by the night wind
I reached the place like a calm another world
This world life must be a funny illusion
I wonder what I was watching there

How sad the blue moon is
Please release me from this world
My shadow reflected in the water looks to me sorrowful

The sand feels gentle to my bare feet
Being protected by the guardian stars
Now I am just watching the dark lake
While leaning in the old boat

How sad the blue moon is
How empty my heart is
If I step in the water now
I'm sure I will not do any more

Now the sand feels gentle to my bare feet
I must have been helped by the stars
I am only watching the ripples on the lake now
While leaning in the old boat

Very cool song Shigeki. Loved the intro. Excellent vocal. Could be a song for a James Bond movie...

Shigeki,

I really enjoyed the big sounding production on this song especially the dramatic string arrangement.The work that must go into these midi tracks is daunting to me, and yours are among the best on this forum.
The vocals by Yoko are good as well.

"Being protected by the guardian stars
Now I am just watching the dark lake
While leaning in the old boat"

very evocative lyrics!

Robert

Shigeki Adachi,

Your arrangements are a real musical delight.

The combination of pop instruments with orchestral strings and Yoko's strong vocal of a terrific melody all combined to remind me of the biggest of the female singers of the mid '60s... Petula Clark, Dusty Springfield, LuLu.... this sounds like a hit for any of them.

Great use of the different drum tracks. Strings are excellent. Excellent mix.

Outstanding. As always.

It's wonderful to hear something a little different from you, Shigeki! This is a really well-arranged tune. The vocal performance is killer, too. I love the harmonized electric guitars at the end -- a perfect climax to an already exciting song.

We love Scott's comment about how this tune could be a theme from a James Bond movie. Perfect.

This sounds like it dropped out of a famous production studio.

The composition, vocal and arrangement are superb and you never cease to amaze.

You always mange to deliver marvelous songs, and this one is no exception.

I enjoyed it from the first note. A great arrangements with a sensational popular style, although I wouldn't have categorized is as 'rock'.

Truly enjoyable. Thanks for another one.

We're going to have to invent a new word to describe your excellent written, mixed, arranged, performed production masterpieces. I would truly love to sit with you throughout you creating one of your works. You produce big studio, big budget sounds like no other.
Such an enjoyable listen for me this morning.

Charlie

Hi Shigeki,

Your songs and arrangements are always so full and pleasant to the ear. Yoko's vocal is splendid! Everything about this song is fantastic. It has a classic sound with nuances of contemporary. Twinning the vocal in places was another exceptional dynamic. We totally loved it. Excellent work!

It's a rock song but whit the right touch of melody, that's a big thing.

It's the better kind of rock.

Very well performed and arranged.
