The double title song 'Eye To Eye' is a subtle song when you meet the person you've been looking for.
This song is in close contact with 'STARLIGHT', which depicts the moment when a spark occurred.
In the lyrics, 'See eye to eye' is an idiom that indicates that you completely agree with the other person.
It is a song that beautifully expresses the thrill of sharing emotions with only your eyes, without saying anything special.
With the combination of an attractive bass line and a dreamy melody, you can feel the overwhelming emotions for a moment.
I hope you experience it.
