Ghibli MV for Piece by Yui Aragaki

Watching the video after reading the lyrics made me wonder how the team came up with the concept as surely, they already had the lyrics. Then I remembered that it is Studio Ghibli and I watched the music video again. The second time I finally connected some of the dots but was still somewhat lost.

Sometimes I wonder if studios try too hard to have a meaningful ending or message to projects, others I wonder if I a missing something. Like the final shot for this music video by Ghibli ends with, ‘Life is love lines’. I wonder if they are referring to the connections between people and hinting towards the ‘red-string’ that connects fated lovers in a lot of stories while saying there are not only red strings but many types of connections. Then again, I am probably reading way too deeply into the final message and have probably missed the point.

The music video made by Studio Ghibli:

The Lyrics to Piece by Yui Aragaki

I hold my unrevealing email to you
In the palm of my hand
There’s always something missing
Like an incomplete puzzle

I’m at a loss, sitting on a see-saw as the sun sets
Imagining you sitting on the other end

I don’t need a reply or a promise
Let me be connected to you, to you
The final piece is right here
I want to be your light, your light

No one ever really knows
The reasons or where they’re going
But I love you
Words are tiny things, aren’t they?

As the stars dimly float up into the sky
I start counting my wishes to them, one, two, three

I kicked the sand hard and began to run
My heart beats for you, for you
If my smile can save, I can keep on smiling
I want to be your light, your light

It softly became clear and I could see the future
I’ve never felt like this before
I finally found
The reason I came here

I don’t need a reply or a promise
Let me be connected to you, to you
The final piece is right here
I want to be your light, your light
I want to be your light
