Sai: Quiet, you lie asleep

Dreaming of a peaceful place

Soaking up the warm embrace

Of the overhanging sun

Phoebe: Flowers bloom all around

Woven through the grass and trees

A soft and fragrant tapestry

That the elements have spun

Kyrie: The weather is perfect for now

But there’s no guarantee it will stay

Kikyo: As the sunlight grows dim

And the sky starts to darken with gray

Sai: But you know it won’t be long

‘Til the clouds give way

(And the clouds give way)

daphne: Quiet, you lie asleep

Dreaming of a peaceful place

That’s when the raindrops hit your face

Making rivulets like tears

RSK: Startled and half-awake,

You hurry toward the nearest tree

Tucked beneath its canopy

You can wait until it clears

YEOL.: The rain begins to pour

You’ve never seen a storm like this before

Minutes stretch into hours, into days

As lightning sets the sky ablaze

And you ask

Azure: When will the sun come out?

When will we be okay?

(When will the clouds give...)

When will our lives return?

When will the world be safe?

When will the clouds

When will the clouds give—

Freya: We all spend so much time

Waiting for that the skies to clear

High up in the stratosphere

The clouds block out the stars

Hikari: Maybe on other worlds

The sun has chased the storm away

But who knows if the light of day

Will ever visit ours

All: It’s tempting to sit somewhere safe

And hope that the weather will change

But after a while

You start wondering whether it’s


How time seems to freeze

When problems can’t be solved

By hiding under trees

And there’s nothing left to do

But sink to your knees

And pray

That the storm lets up

And the wind dies down

And the sun peeks out

Miyo: As the clouds give way

Here you can find fault with some parts of the choral performance. In general, the track is wonderful, unexpectedly cool for 10 singers at once :)

I love this! This is so good.. Very relaxing and something I can relax and vibe too. The voice is so soothing! ;^;

There’s so much movement. Not usually my cup of tea stylistically but even just from a production and performance standpoint, this is wild. Nice work!

damn, i'm typically not a massive fan of things like this but holy, something about the mood just sends this over the top for me. might be your best work to date. i'd have to give it a few more listens. fantastic regardless.

That was stunning, loved the progression and energy everyone brought with their unique vocals. Good balance on the mix to my ears (I'm no expert lol), I was constantly entertained flitting my attention between the lyrics and instrumentation as the song flowed.
