This was written over three listens and it was quite difficult to write anything.
I feel I overthought it and that might have to do with the familiarity I have of the scene in which this song plays. Some of that seeped in which is okay, but I feel this would’ve been much better had I let the words flow more.
Eriko Imura’s (井村 絵里子) “Difficult to Say” is from Klonoa of the Wind: Door to Phantomile Original Soundtrack (風のクロノア Door to Phantomile オリジナルサウンドトラック). It’s the soundtrack for the game Klonoa: Door to Phantomile.
I hope you enjoy.
A need to reveal a truth comes to the forefront. Heavy are the sounds before they pause and let out a gentle touch and ring out to come forth and come clean.
A pressing situation begets weight and sadness, but instead of holding a grip it gives way to a sense of relief. Bonds remain firm in the face of revelation and a journey continues.
The sounds grow lighter and more assured. The weight remains but it doesn’t hold and can no longer press down. Gradually they seem to find an optimistic note to close on as the song ends.
