It's described the feeling of sadness perfectly
Long has it been since I first heard this song, but the feelings it gave me back then will never fade away. My hard breaks every time I hear it, and my mind fills itself with images of Nagisa and Dango's.
Clannad is life.
Love this song it is a very deep song!
I don't know why, but, every time I listen it, I feel like there's something just gone from me~
Really sad. A love story about a vampire (yeah, I know it sounds absurd but just keep reading) who once was married but his wife died of an illness. Then, one day after long years of loneliness he found a girl identical to his dead wife. The song is about how he watched that girl for the rest of her life, and how he loved her but she didn't knew him, so she married another man. You have to watch the PV to understand.
It's from Naruto and reminds you of all the characters who died! #bitter
