Conversations at home
Bustle on the streets
Heated discussions at meetings
In such casual sounds
People live
Repeating joy and sorrow.

However, from the depths of the bustle
An unfamiliar sound

Eventually that thoroughbass
Surpasses everyday sounds
And emerges into our daily life.

The change of tide
That moves us
Visits us in that way.
The symphony of life
That moves our soul
Begins in that way.
