about

This single is about transience. Hanami is the celebration of the blooming cherry trees: admiring the blossoms with richly decorated branches. Within weeks, the petals will defoliate and the trees are left bare. It has been like this for hundreds of years. And every year the cherry blossom reminds people of the beauty and transience of life. The world perishes constantly, but in spring flowers blossom again.

Track Name: Scattered
Easy on the eyes
Humble porcelain smiles
Secrets beauty keeps
Secrets wrapped in sheets

Seemingly so seemly
Skin like driven snow

Men of power fearing
Their pillow talk
Lead them to their prisons

Leave the petals scatter
Effortlessly free

One day in May
Some day in May
One day in May
Only today, just for a day

Without second thought
Cherries will be plucked
As the blossoms wither
Makeup deconstructs

One day in May
Some day in May
One day in May
Only today, just for a day
Track Name: Fleeting
Standing here in my Kimono
Never been to Okinawa, Kyoto or Tokyo
But exquisite beauty
Volatility I know

Hanami, Hanami, Hanami

Many faces I have been
In many ways I have sinned
In the night
Many faces I have been
In many ways I have sinned
Expectations, fleeting dreams
In the night, lost in memories

Ephemeral and fleeting
Readily accepting what might have been
Falling leaves
Overthought destinies

Hanami, Hanami, Hanami

Many faces I have been
In many ways I have sinned
In the night
Many faces I have been
In many ways I have sinned
Expectations, fleeting dreams
In the night, lost in memories
