Lyrics by Hiroshi Kubota / Composed by TJ Mixx, Play Production / Arranged by TJ Mixx
A song that is reminiscent of the starlit night sky, through its lush melody arrangement you can hear the ultimate love.

11. 遠い世界 (Distant World)
Lyrics by Hiroshi Kubota / Composed by Paul Drew, Greig Watts, Pete Barringer, Douglas Shawe / Arranged by Paul Drew, Greig Watts, Pete Barringer
