Inspired by a rainy day, I wanted to make a more melancholy song that would be great to listen to while studying or relaxing. It is also on my SoundCloud.



This track is essentially my impression of Nujabes, a producer whose music I have been studying to for the past 8 years. I often wonder how my GPA would appear without his catalog. The lyrics reflect the overly self-conscious outlook I sometimes hold in the face of love. Surely childish, but hopefully relatable. I composed the beat from scratch and am very happy with it, please enjoy.
