SCANDAL's MIRROR Lyrics Essays

#2 - HARUNA's "Yuugure, Tokeru" Lyrics Essay

Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 000002-trim

You can fully convey something just by saying, "I don't really get it, but I really like this."




On Jan. 26, 2022, SCANDAL released their new album MIRROR! It contains a total of 10 songs: 7 new songs plus the three singles (eternal, Ivory, one more time) released last year. Also included are songs with lyrics and music written by each of the band members. Please enjoy the many songs that are unique to this album!

There will be a total of 4 essays from SCANDAL about this latest release. This is the second one, written by vocalist HARUNA. She talks about the song "Yuugure, Tokeru" (Dusk Is Melting) which features lyrics and music written by her. A piece of this song was born during a certain evening during an autumn in the midst of the pandemic. What feelings propelled the work forward, and what did she feel after completing it? Please enjoy this essay along with the lyrics.



~Lyrics Essay: "Yuugure, Tokeru"~

The song on our album that I wrote the lyrics and music for began with the words "Dusk is melting" that came to mind while on a walk with my dog on an autumn evening of 2020 in the midst of the pandemic.

The pandemic hit and our planned concerts had to be postponed/canceled. Even everyday life was restricted. My purpose as a musician was stolen away from me, I felt depressed, and I couldn't get started with writing songs.

Although there were times like that, it wasn't always like that. I gradually started accepting the state of things and felt positive feelings surging forth of how I must do what I'm able to right now, in my own way. They oddly fit with the setting sun I saw at that time, and it just completely resonated with me. To say that "dusk is melting" is odd, but I thought it sounded kind of nice. I believed in that feeling and started writing.

The songs with lyrics and music written by me up until now feature things like scenery and situations that you can immediately picture by reading the lyrics, and they explain my feelings. That was good when I was in my twenties, but now that I'm in my thirties, I've sometimes felt that I need to slightly limit my variations for direct expressions.

So, when I made abstract and ambiguous lyrics that were born by giving names to scenery and feelings this time, I felt that I came in contact once more with the freedom of music and expression. I was very happy to discover the possibilities in writing lyrics.

In life you're asked your reasons for liking something, and there are many times when you need to verbalize it. When you can't explain something well, you feel down that your point's not getting across. However, I want to believe that you can fully convey something just by saying, "I don't really get it, but I really like this." I want to affirm many things that seem like that and expand my world even further.

Live true to yourself, and express yourself the way you want to. What I strongly feel right now is that I want to cherish this song, which reminds me of what it means to be a musician, and continue to help out the lives of many people with music.

<SCANDAL・HARUNA>

Yesterday, the special episode of "Catch up" was broadcasted live!
Thank you so much
For the fun hour that went by in no time〜✌

After the live broadcast,
We also recorded two regular episodes...☺
We'll be reading messages
That we weren't able to during the live broadcast!

After everything was done,
The "her" Team gave us a surprise (*cries*
For our 15th anniversary, and the release of our 10th album,
10 extremely delicious-looking strawberries!
We ate them starting in the morning〜
They were super sweet〜! So happy and grateful.

So much media info is coming out day after day,
And I'm sure you guys are already overwhelmed by it all...haha
I hope that at a timing that works for you
You'll like what catches your eye.

The album's only just been released,
But it feels that our current feelings
That we've been talking about in interviews, radio programs, etc.
Are reaching everyone along with the songs.

It makes me happy
Checking mentions, comments,
And DMs every day on Instagram.
Thank you.

Having roughness and airiness are both important,
But in order for things to properly reach others,
I want to keep at it while having passion
And putting things into words, even if they're unrefined.
What everyone is lovingly sharing
Are surely opportunities for others to find out more about us.
Thank you! We'll work hard!

Your albums will have been shipped along with white, square-shaped pieces of paper. You will get one slip per album purchased, and they each contain a serial number that you will need to input into the signup site that can be accessed via the QR code printed on the paper.

You only need one code for yourself, so if you have any extras, you could possibly share them with friends or anyone that you think might need it (i.e. those whose albums will not arrive on time).


You have until Feb. 4 @ 6 pm JST to input your serial number.


Once you scan the QR code, you will be directed to the signup site. Scroll to the bottom of the page and input your serial number into the box, then click the "Login" button.
Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 6a3SRkt




You will be directed to a form where you'll need to input some information. You can enter whatever kind of name you want. For the phone number, I believe it needs to be a Japan phone number. I suggest either signing up for a Tenso forwarding address and inputting the phone number you're given, or search on Google for a random business's number in Japan (i.e. Tower Records in Shibuya). As for the optional message, you can only input Japanese characters - it will not let you advance if you use Roman characters.

After you've filled out the form, click the "Confirm info" button on the bottom.

English Translation

Wandering around
In the faint smoke
The refracting white light
Reflects the present

Quietly locking eyes
And refusing to accept it all
My heart and voice
Are hopelessly in disarray

I try to keep my faint heartbeat going
Wanting things to stay the same
I reached my hand out gently

After breaking free from
The repeating darkness and light
I'll be on the borderline
Of where the two intersect somewhere - Let me believe in
What's reflected in the mirror
My reflection in the mirror

Scattered, half-hearted prayers
Are struck by cold rain
And reject the changing world

Beautiful and ugly things
Plague the depths of my heart
The fluttering flower petals
Are about to brim over

I don't want to forget this indelible afterimage
Hoping things still stay the same
I'll wait for a gentle wind
And face it head-on right now

After breaking free from
The repeating darkness and light
I'll be on the borderline
Of where the two intersect somewhere - Let me believe in
What's reflected in the mirror
My reflection in the mirror

I wanted to see
A sea of daisies swaying in the wind
I looked to the sky
On the brink of rain and said
"Let's go now."

Emitting a dazzling light
A shower of love pours down
Please, set your heart free
Reach for a gentle world

Why is it
That my pain and joy became one?
Even if I'm scared, I'll unlock this door again
Watch me do it

Watch me

Emitting a dazzling light
A shower of love pours down
Please, set your heart free
Towards a gentle world

Emitting a dazzling light
There's a love that pours down
Please, set your heart free
Reach for a gentle world

Hey, make this moment last eternally
Make this moment last eternally
Make this moment last eternally
Make this moment last eternally
Make this moment last eternally
Make this moment last eternally

I'm waiting for you to get back home
This might be our last night together
Will I be able to say
"Welcome back" as always?

I can't say it
If I don't say it, what will you think?
Maybe you'll ask me gently
What the matter is

You did nothing wrong, and I still care for you
It seems I just got too used to it all
I wanted a warmth that was different
From trust and peace of mind

That smile, that voice
That broad back, those mannerisms
I'm sorry for pretending
To have always loved them
You know that we're different
We could stay together like this, but
Our love's over now
It didn't turn out to be true love

Tomorrow morning
I'm sure you'll head out to work
Like nothing happened

Although I'll be gone
You'll probably figure things out
And find your next partner
Right away

Even though this was just
A small fraction of my life
I really was happy

I'll see you again someday - Take care
Take it easy once in a while and go slow
Make sure you balance your meals
And eat plenty
I thank you from the bottom of my heart
Although I won't know who you'll be going forward
I want you to keep smiling

That smile, that voice
That broad back, those mannerisms
I had always loved them all
I truly did love you
You know that we're different
We could stay together like this, but
Our love's over now
It didn't turn out to be true love

Glittering like a mirror
Stretching out endlessly
A fleeting wish, a boundless blue
That can almost be grabbed but can't be locked away

Wanting to learn about the deepest depths
Entangled in particles of light
Wanting to unravel together until it melts
A tender presence, a scent that dances in the wind

She is a wave, wave, wave
She is a wave, wave, wave

Glittering like a mirror
Stretching out endlessly
A fleeting wish, a boundless blue
That can almost be grabbed but can't be locked away

She is a wave, wave, wave
She is a wave, wave, wave

You're brewing coffee in the middle of the night
Isn't time to go to bed?
You're awfully gloomy as you sink into the couch, baby
No one's noticed yet

But I know all about those wings on your back and silhouette of light

Hey, let's pick up where that dream left off
I want us to praise each other's skin, eyes, and words
The important thing is to remember
When you were you
Undo this tangled knot

I'm sure you've noticed
The hidden door leading to heaven
The one who holds the key
Is you - Do you believe?

And that's a wonderful secret between just the two of us

Hey, let's pick up where that dream left off
I want us to praise each other's skin, eyes, and words
The important thing is to remember
When you were you
Undo this tangled knot

When the day comes when missiles will launch
I'll protect you
Knowing feelings deeper than the ocean

Hey, let's pick up where that dream left off
I swear to be by your side when it's rainy and when it's windy
Let's set off on a journey to uncover love's true colors
I'll gently kiss your wounds
And remember the smile
On your lips

English Translation

Nothing is always absolutely so
Give it a try
Messing up is scary
But there's no need to worry

Because there must be something
That you don't want to end

There is nothing
That is meaningless
But giving meaning to everything
Won't help you out, either

Because you're watching over it all
When you embark towards somewhere

Softly, softly, with blurred vision
I search and search - I too am trying to figure it all out
Swaying, swaying, with wavering emotions
Living frustratingly and happily

What to wear today?
What to eat for dinner?
Probably even clones have discrepancies
So do whatever you want

Desperately, desperately trying to stop the tears
That are falling down, falling down
Lightly, lightly, I rub my eyes stinging from the wind
And smile - I'm alive

Softly, softly, with blurred vision
I search and search - I too am trying to figure it all out
Swaying, swaying, with wavering emotions
Living frustratingly and happily

Living frustratingly and happily

The smell of rain lingered faintly
And left me feeling nostalgic

I'm sure I remember a transparent place
That I don't have any memories of

Ah, dusk is melting

It's okay to make a wish right now
That remains as ambiguous as humming

Even though it's invisible and can't be touched
It's connected to me

Ah, dusk is melting

That summer that'll never return
Remains within us
This time that'll never return
I want to cherish forever

We laughed on the worst nights
And got a little closer to love
There were no right answers
I never got to say goodbye

I couldn't see it because I was too close
I pretended to be strong because I was weak
I realize now
That those were dreamlike days

I'll never forget
All of the days I lived with you
These memories are so dazzling
In the gaps of the blue, echoing night

Rain and scattered petals
Tears melting down your cheeks
It was all so beautiful
It was terribly beautiful

I'll never forget
All of the days I lived with you
These memories are so dazzling
In the gaps of the blue, echoing night

I'll never forget
All of the days I lived with you
These memories are so dazzling
In the gaps of the blue, echoing night





Prism ~ プリズム
Lyrics: RINA ~ Music: TOMOMI ~ Arrangement: Kouhei Munemoto, SCANDAL

Kirari to hikatta koi no shizuku
Omoide wa kirei ni naru bakari
Kumotta garasu ni suketa seikatsu
Nanka setsunaku naru dareka ni aitaku naru

Sunda kuuki ga shikoukairo wo
Iya to iu hodo kuria ni saseru
Mou me ga mawarisou toumei ni saresou

Watashi ga kanjita mono dake
Muneippai ni shikitsumete

Reesu no kage wo utsushidasu heya de
Yurareteitai yurareteitai tada

Soredemo ukabu aimai wo kotoba ni naranai kanjou wo

Yurareteitai yurareteitai tada

English Translation

Glittering drops of love
Memories simply becoming beautiful
Life through frosted glass
It breaks my heart and makes me miss someone

The crisp air clears out my thoughts
Almost unpleasantly so
I feel dizzy and like I'm about to disappear

All the things I've felt
Fill my heart with emotion
I want to be swayed, want to be swayed
The warmth of the sun hidden by the clouds
In a room where shadows of lace are projected
I want to be swayed, want to be swayed - That's all

Even so, the ambiguity that comes to mind, the emotions that can't be put into words
I won't lose them, won't forget them
An intricately-entwined, beautiful prism

All the things I've felt
Fill my heart with emotion
I want to be swayed, want to be swayed
The warmth of the sun hidden by the clouds
In a room where shadows of lace are projected
I want to be swayed, want to be swayed - That's all

Dawn has broken on the long night
The sunlight streaming in is so gentle
I rubbed my sleepy eyes and said
"There's nothing to worry about - Nothing at all"

Chilled glasses - The two mix
Just let me listen to all of the excitement - Hey! Siri
The overlapping claps, the bouncy rhythm
Feels kind of nice

Let's head to a place
Even more fun than before
You shine when I laugh
Our love's in synchronicity

Let's throw on our shoes and hit the town
uh uh uh... Shake it up, baby
Let's lose track of time and feel the music
baby, one more time

You don't need any special pass

Let's leave it all behind and keep on dancing
baby, one more time

Even when the fog won't clear
The world stretches on endlessly
I think that's all good with me
"There's nothing to worry about - Nothing at all"

Small secrets, melting ice cream
Singing the way we want to - It's heavenly
Soaring lyrics, falling drops
Let's take it easy

So that we can change forever and ever
Like it! Put a bookmark on this moment
This new era in which we live
Is a breezy city

Let's throw on our shoes and hit the town

Ah, I still don't know how this came about
I can't get these words out of my head
There are so many things I need to do
But the Wi-Fi's being slow today of all days
I'll put on Netflix at 10 pm as usual
And do some binge-watching with popcorn and Coke
Ah, I'm not in the mood for that
And it's a little too early to go to sleep

And that ends quickly at a convenience store
There's a coin laundromat from Berlin that recently opened
I'll rock these Instapump Fury shoes
And try every trick in the book
I'm sure it's important to everyone
How they spend a night like this
This is Tokyo

Living in the city
I become me a little at a time
Me, more than anyone else
Living in the moment
I'll laugh and cry over and over again
And ultimately always face forward
I have hope for the future
That's how I want to live

On the weekend I'll go to Pretty Things
Or go look for T-shirts at BerBerJin
The ads at the intersection
Tell me what this year's festival headliners are
How many are in this giant wave of people?
Managing to get through it is just like surfing
It's the same old, same old and also not at the same time
But this is the life I love

My first love came here
And stuck a sticker on the wall
I said those embarrassing things when I was drunk
So take it easy on me, sister
I don't want to forget any of it
I want
To embrace it

Living in the city
I become me a little at a time
Me, more than anyone else
Living in the moment
I'll laugh and cry over and over again
And ultimately always face forward
I have hope for the future
That's how I want to live

One day a nostalgic wind blew
And suddenly almost sucked me in
To the point where I couldn't move
And tightly gripped my heart
But surprisingly I feel like
I've gotten closer to this city
Hey mama, can we keep things like this?
I'm unsure, but I'm hungry
I kind of miss that person
I want to laugh tomorrow, God

Living in the city
I become me a little at a time
Me, more than anyone else
Living in the moment
I'll laugh and cry over and over again
And ultimately always face forward
I have hope for the future
That's how I want to live

That's how I'll live
I'll live like this

English Translation

You're still struggling
To find who you truly are
Even this sense of inferiority won't go away
After all, it's a part of us

It's all right
Burn the resolve hidden in your heart
You no longer want to run from your weakness

Because you have something you want to protect
You can smile and push forward again
As you leap out of this confined world
And think of someone, the tears that spill
Are a spice that was concealed

The more you speak
The more you'll likely awake from this dream
You don't want to justify everything
You want everyone to understand
That there's no one right answer

It's all right
Take on challenges as you lay yourself bare
Make your sadness a weapon

Let's fulfill our dreams we almost gave up on
So that we can meet up here again and again
We get stronger just as much as we've been hurt
Let's keep running towards tomorrow
Don't lose your own pride

The spring breeze blows and wipes the tears away
The seasons change

You don't know how far you can go
I don't know what I can do, but

Because you have something you want to protect
You can smile and push forward again
As you leap out of this confined world
And think of someone, the tears that spill
Are the best spice

The official upload of it on YouTube is currently unavailable for many countries worldwide. If you want to view it there, you'll need to use a VPN (like a Japan one).





Here are the comments from the band that were posted in the video's chat during the premiere:

Being in love as an adult is painful,,, Such a good song,, 【RINA】

It was so bright on the balcony,, 【HARUNA】

It was odd that we finished shooting this video basically without seeing each other because there weren't any scenes that called for the four of us to be together (I only got to see MAMI since our makeup times overlapped a bit) 【TOMOMI】

Shooting went by in a flash - On that day it was like I just stopped by the dressing room to eat the lunch that was prepared for me😍💦【MAMI】

SCANDAL's MIRROR Lyrics Essays

#1 - MAMI's "Ai ni Naranakatta no sa" Lyrics Essay

Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 000011-trim

The things I personally consider to be important when it comes to love are...




On Jan. 26, 2022, SCANDAL will release their new album MIRROR! It will contain a total of 10 songs: 7 new songs plus the three singles (eternal, Ivory, one more time) released last year. Also included are songs with lyrics and music written by each of the band members. Please look forward to the many songs that are unique to this album!

There will be a total of 4 essays from SCANDAL about this latest release. This is the first one, written by guitarist MAMI. She talks about the song "Ai ni Naranakatta no sa" (It Didn't Turn Out to Be True Love) which features lyrics and music written by her. What do you consider to be important when it comes to love? Please enjoy this lyrics essay while thinking of what love means to you.



~Lyrics Essay: "Ai ni Naranakatta no sa"~

The melody for this song came to mind at the same time as the one for "Ivory." As I was considering which one to pen the lyrics for first, I happened to be able to write the lyrics for "Ivory." This song was then shelved for a bit as a voice memo (New Recording #58).

At that time I still didn't know what lyrics to write, nor what arrangement it should have, and so it took the shape of it being warehoused inside of myself without showing it to the world (even the other band members didn't listen to it).

During the time we were making the three songs we released as singles in 2021, the subject of an album came up. We were like, "Oh no! We have no songs stocked up! Now we need to hurry up and work on making some!" That was when I suddenly remembered that voice memo. I thought, "Huh, could we use this?" I listened to the memo again and decided to make a demo of me singing to my own accompaniment (to be honest, it only had a decent melody, haha).

Recalling the time when I made this melody, I just wanted it to have a different theme from "Ivory," so I thought it would be better to limit what it was about. I also remember that I had a lot of friends who were having relationship problems at that time. But their problems were complicated, I didn't know what I would do if I were in their shoes, and come to think of it, what were my own past relationships like, again? Etc., etc. I finally arrived at these lyrics after thinking back on a lot of things.

What love is... Even if it's not love, you can have different sets of values. It can be important for some people to be together at all times, and it can also be important for some people to express love even if they can't be together. There are also people who believe their hearts are connected even if there's nothing there (and I think there are even more kinds, like those who think reporting / communicating / discussing is important).

There are 3 things I personally consider to be important when it comes to love: Don't ask for anything in return, don't get your hopes up, and don't forget to be considerate. I think that would be unconditional love, which I can't do, haha. If you care for your partner, there shouldn't be any reason to break up with each other. Even if don't have someone that you love. But if you're expecting something in return and have your hopes up, you'll think that it's not enough.

To you who's reading this, what do you think is important?
The day I'll get closer to unconditional love is still far away~...

ch FILES - Interview with HARUNA and MAMI - Sat Jan 22, 2022 10:15 am

SCANDAL|What shape does love take for this quartet that's been together since they were students?

Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 8d86bc8f9479c6bbe5940f5b3b5b3f93





SCANDAL celebrated their 15th anniversary last year, and will be releasing their landmark 10th album MIRROR on Jan. 26th. We asked MAMI and HARUNA, who continue to be active on the front lines as an all-girl band, about their thoughts on this album completed during the pandemic, their excitement for their tour, and their messages to their high school selves!





[i]MIRROR reflects who they are right now without hiding anything[/i]



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr Your 15th anniversary and the release of your 10th album are overlapping milestones. How do you feel now that you've completed the album?

HARUNA: I'm glad we were able to complete it. We couldn't play concerts during the pandemic, and we felt an unease and confusion in stopping something that we've been doing over 10 years. However, having properly reflected on music and completing an album has given us confidence that we can continue to work together as SCANDAL.



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr How did you decide on the album's title and theme?

MAMI: We didn't decide from the get-go that we wanted to give it the title MIRROR, nor make the album a certain way. Up until now we had been thinking of making songs that we can enjoy together with our audiences at concerts, but during the pandemic we weren't sure for what purpose we should write songs. We then finally created "eternal." We didn't have any vision for the album and struggled to churn out songs one by one. By reflecting on ourselves during production, there were things that we accepted and things that we rejected. That's why we decided at the very last minute, "What about going with the title MIRROR?"

HARUNA: I'm glad we didn't give up.

MAMI: We of course have also written songs that are fun and have hope, but this time we made an album that reflects our hardships without hiding anything, just like a mirror.



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr I'm also curious about what led up to the creation of the title track "MIRROR."

MAMI: It isn't that we decided to line up 10 completed songs side by side and chose "MIRROR" as the title track; it was actually written after deciding on the title of the album. With the other 9 songs we felt that this is album that the current SCANDAL can proudly release. "MIRROR" was made because we thought it might be better to shift into another gear and have a song that inspires us. This song was born at the very end.



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr What are your favorite songs on the album?

MAMI: Mine is "Prism." The music is by our bassist TOMOMI, and I made new discoveries such as melodies that I didn't come up with. So far we've had a lot of songs where HARUNA's voice gives off a powerful and cool impression, but this time it's nice to have her voice sound soft and true-to-life throughout the album. Among those is "Prism," and HARUNA's voice suits it really well! I think this can make "time" move for those who have had the same impression of SCANDAL being a school uniform-wearing band from 15 years prior. That's what I like most about it.

HARUNA: Maybe "one more time" for me? We had released three singles (eternal, Ivory, one more time) ahead of the album. When we were working on "eternal" and "Ivory," we as musicians didn't know if sending something with a fun vibe out to the world was the right thing to do, and how people would feel during these times about things that had been commonplace in the past. Those were things we really took into consideration. But starting from springtime of last year, we slowly started being able to play concerts with audiences in attendance and had more chances to again experience how much fun concerts are, and that they make us happy. It's because I had moments where I was saved by music that I myself wanted to save people with music as a musician. That feeling grew stronger after making "one more time." We made progress on it after we released "Ivory," and was able to perform comfortably.



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr "Ai ni Naranakatta no sa" made my heart ache...!

MAMI: The melody for "Ai ni Naranakatta no sa" was finished at the same time as "Ivory." Since "Ivory" is a song written from a broad point of view and not limited to only love, "Ai ni Naranakatta no sa" focuses on love and expresses vague feelings like, "Are we breaking up? Or are we not?" It was suーper easy to write after listening to my friends' experiences and remembering when I broke up with someone I was dating (laughs).



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr MAMI, what happens when you actually feel that love "didn't turn out to be true love"?

MAMI: Huhー, I wonder. When I thought about what the most painful thing is when you're in love, I realized that it's "indifference." Like in the lyrics of "Ai ni Naranakatta no sa," there's a couple that lives together. If one contacts another, they get a reply right away. They're very diligent. When they go to work, they make sure to come back home. That trust and peace of mind of course makes you happy. However, if you start feeling indifferent to your partner that holds you tightly when they get back home, pats your head, and will stay with you forever, it might not be love.



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr How did "Yuugure, Tokeru" come to be?

HARUNA: When I was taking a walk outside while looking at a really beautiful sunset, the words "Dusk is melting" suddenly popped into my head. You don't normally refer to dusk as melting, right? But I thought it kind of sounded nice. I think it's surprisingly common to think to yourself that something you came up with sounds kind of nice, even if you can't explain it properly. It's often said that it's better to explain things and feelings using words, but sometimes it is better to trust your intuition and go in a direction that suits things more nicely. It's a song that I made with the intention of affirming myself when I come up with odd phrases.





As musicians, concerts make them feel that they're their reason for existing



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr You'll also finally be starting your domestic tour and world tour. What are the differences between playing in Japan and abroad?

HARUNA: For our world tours, we often say simple greetings in the local language during MCs. Also, the difference in audience reactions is super interesting! In Japan, the raising and waving hands is perfectly timed, and the audience tries to match each other while being aware of one another—it's very Japanese mindset-like. Overseas crowds, however, don't do that and just move however they feel like (laughs). The directions they raise their hands in differ, like up/down or even sideways, but that inverse feel looks amusing and energetic.

MAMI: There can be an explosive surge during songs where we'll just be a band performing a typical concert as always, but then it feels more like a club and makes us think, "Was the vibe of this song always like this!? Are we going at a slower tempo!?" (laughs). When we see realistic reactions, we feel at ease and are like, "This is what music's all about!"



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr Please tell us how excited you are for the tour!

HARUNA: Having many wonderful times once more is one of life's pleasures. By being in a band you have a space where you can communicate face-to-face with your fans, and where we need each other—you feel the significance of your existence. That's when it makes us think that it's okay to be musicians, so I'm very happy that we're playing a lot of concerts this year.





It's been 15 years since the band formed. What has made both MAMI and HARUNA feel that the other has "grown up"?



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr SCANDAL's style in which all the members write and compose songs feels fresh.

MAMI: If we didn't help each other out, we wouldn't be able to be a band (laughs). We're all originally from a dance and vocal training school, with singing being a big reason for that, but because we each have our own likes, it's not possible to merge our idiosyncrasies into one. When one of us really wants to make a song, they do so. An album is completed as those songs stack up. We don't decide that all of us need to write both lyrics and music, nor do we think of making songs on our own—we go with the flow, and that's what our style currently is. Although I've been writing songs often as of recently, I do think that I can't do it alone. And of course there are times when I'm like, "There's nothing that I want to say!" When that happens the other members are there, and it makes me glad that we're not able to merge into one.

HARUNA: The songs written by each of us are completely different from each other, and it gives us each a ton of ideas that we personally haven't thought of. By encountering new emotions that I wouldn't come up with on my own, I feel like I can grow even more. I'm happy that they give me so much inspiration.



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr The band formed when you were middle/high schoolers. If you could meet your past selves, what would you want to say to them?

HARUNA: Maybe to study English properly. As a grown up I always try to make remembering things fun and think about how to remember something, so I think it might have been more useful if I remembered exactly what my teachers said. Since we play concerts overseas, I wish I had learned more English when I was still a teenager.

MAMI: Because I lived freely on my own terms, I might say to keep things as they are. My memories of doing band activities and having fun with friends were fulfilling. If you asked me about balancing that with my studies, it's a little harder to say for that (laughs). As for my youth, I think I was able to keep a balance with being in a band and being a student.



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr During these 15 years, what has made each of you feel that the other has "grown up"?

MAMI: HARUNA has become insanely motherly.

HARUNA: Really (laughs)?

MAMI: Although we attended the same training school at the time of our formation, we hadn't really talked to each other. Back then she gave off a really cool, candid vibe. But after 15 years' worth of conversations, we've gotten so close that I can call her my very best friend in the band right now. I've come to feel that HARUNA is a kind, thoughtful, and supercute person.

HARUNA: (MAMI) is now able to participate in group activities (laughs).

MAMI: Really!? Thank you very much.

HARUNA: She loves being alone, and she's very impulsive. A long time ago she'd say something like, "I'm going to ___ tomorrow" the day before, but the next day she'd change her mind. There'd also be times when we'd be like, "You said you wanted to eat that a few minutes ago, but now you're eating something different?" Earlier, MAMI said that she wanted to eat donuts and looked for a donut shop. We got in the mood to eat donuts, but when we actually went to the donut shop she ordered just a coffee.

MAMI: I wonder what happened (laughs).

HARUNA: We're used to it happening so often that we don't think anything of it, but recently I've started to think that living with another person isn't that hard to do.

MAMI: Maybe all of our likes are finally in sync.

HARUNA: That may be the case.

MAMI: Eating wasn't that important to me, but I think it's a big deal that I've now come to enjoy food. Let's go eat some samgyeopsal (Korean grilled pork belly).

HARUNA: Yeah, let's go eat some samgyeopsal (laughs).





This month's special feature is to share what form love takes for you. Please complete this sentence: Love is about...?

Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 0dyrpFY MAMI: Love is about interest!

I think it's important to have an interest in not only romantic interests but also family; friends; members; and colleagues, and have a want to get closer to them and be interested in what they're interested in. It's thanks to HARUNA that I got into K-Pop, and I talk to her every day about it (laughs). I think that having feelings for another person, such as interests and concerns, is love.


Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 B4apMjj HARUNA: Love is about turning a blind eye to the things you don't like!

There are many people who feel differently from yourself, but I think that love is to have as many quirks as there are people, and to not deny those. Even if you want to say "Isn't that incorrect?", each person feels things differently, and I think it's important for that person to think that it is the correct answer.





Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr What are you aware of when it comes to protecting the shape that love takes for the group?

MAMI: Perhaps giving each other some space. We don't really say things like, "I don't want to hear about this anymore," or "You should like this more." When we're headed to the same place and contact each other about it, we won't poke our nose into each others' business. It's not something we decided in advance; we've just established the perfect balance. It's not quite an unspoken rule, but it's involuntarily established because we take things easy when the four of us are together.

HARUNA: We don't want to quarrel. That's why I think we accept each other. You'll never be on the same wavelength if you start off with saying "This is what I think," which is why all of us have open minds and will be like, "I see - so that's your opinion on this." Even if you think someone's opinion different from yours, you don't state that in a strong way—that might be the shape that love takes for the group.



Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 OPF0fwr Lastly, please leave a message for high schoolers!

MAMI: Those finding out about SCANDAL for the first time via this interview, it would make me very happy if you'd get to know us via MIRROR. If your interest is piqued even a little and listen to it, I'd love for you to tell us your frank thoughts. I wonder what students who like current popular music think when they listen to SCANDAL? We're from the generation who listened to music by putting CDs into stereos or portable players. Now, everyone can listen to music immediately via their smartphones, and the genres and devices have changed. I'm curious as to how SCANDAL's music is being listened to, so I'd love for you guys to listen to us.

HARUNA: When you're in high school, there are those who have decided what they want to do, as well as those who haven't yet decided. Those who truly have something that they want to do, keep going for it. You know what you want to do, but even if you're worried about what your parents or those around you may think, you should definitely be honest with yourself—after all, you can take responsibility for your own decisions. However, if someone tells you to give it up, you will absolutely regret it. I want those who know what they want to do to push ahead, and those who haven't yet decided to take up an interest in something.

Ai ni...?
Theme:RINA

Topics tagged under mirror on SCANDAL HEAVEN - Page 5 R5hvlJt

Our new song
"Ai ni Naranakatta no sa"
Was released in advance digitally.
It's THE great song from the album.




Sometimes it's impossible to like something,
And sometimes it's boring to only have fun.
Living with another person is a fragile and precious period of time.

Love and passion that you can't help but have,
And that you've simply always cherished despite nothing coming from those
Are things that surely exist.
You're left beautifully clinging to memories.

When you spend each day working and making meals,
Time somehow disappears
And you think that maybe you could live on your own.
You're who you are right now
Because you have someone
Whom you had met by chance somewhere.
That's why you get scared
Of losing the life you've gotten used to with the one you love.
It hurts because it's like you've lost a piece of yourself.

Even so, you fall in love again,
Repeating days
Where you don't know what'll happen
Along with feeling that a goodbye is inevitable—
They become stronger and more beautiful.

The feelings born for someone or something,
Meeting someone or something by chance—
Whatever the outcome is, they're all special and miraculous things.
Even if it didn't turn out to be true love, for example.

Feelings are a mysterious thing.

Ai ni Naranakatta no sa Lyrics - Wed Jan 12, 2022 9:00 am






Ai ni Naranakatta no sa ~ 愛にならなかったのさ; It Didn't Turn Out to Be True Love
Lyrics & Music: MAMI ~ Arrangement: Kouhei Munemoto, SCANDAL

Anata no kaeri wo matsu

English Translation

I'm waiting for you to get back home
This might be our last night together
Will I be able to say
"Welcome back" as always?

I can't say it
If I don't say it, what will you think?
Maybe you'll ask me gently
What the matter is

You did nothing wrong, and I still care for you
It seems I just got too used to it all
I wanted a warmth that was different
From trust and peace of mind

That smile, that voice
That broad back, those mannerisms
I'm sorry for pretending
To have always loved them
You know that we're different
We could stay together like this, but
Our love's over now
It didn't turn out to be true love

Tomorrow morning
I'm sure you'll head out to work
Like nothing happened

Although I'll be gone
You'll probably figure things out
And find your next partner
Right away

Even though this was just
A small fraction of my life
I really was happy

I'll see you again someday - Take care
Take it easy once in a while and go slow
Make sure you balance your meals
And eat plenty
I thank you from the bottom of my heart
Although I won't know who you'll be going forward
I want you to keep smiling

That smile, that voice
That broad back, those mannerisms
I had always loved them all
I truly did love you
You know that we're different
We could stay together like this, but
Our love's over now
It didn't turn out to be true love
