I first heard it after watching the Japanese movie “The 8-Year Engagement”(8-nen Goshi no Hanayome), a film based on a true story that featured Sato Takeru and Tao Tsuchiya as main characters. I dearly recommend listening to this beautiful song as I am 100% sure you will love it.

We have all been in love with someone and perhaps some of you also had their heartbroken at some point in life.
