3. Just Once
4. Dakishimetai (VOCALLESS)

This is K’s 2nd single and it was released on May 11, 2005. The single reached #10 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 31,272 copies.

I definitely believe that Dakishimetai is an improvement over his debut single over… in terms of vocals. They are a lot better in my opinion and this song is one of my personal favorites from him. The simple piano arrangement combined with very calm strings makes this quite a relaxing song. Just like his previous single, the song features bittersweet lyrics.

The Japanese B-side, memories, is good as well. The B-sides on K’s singles are always nicely done and this one is no exception. I especially like the lyric: When I remember those happy moments, I thank you.

The English B-side, Just Once, is a cover of a song originally performed by Quincy Jones. K’s English has improved a little bit and I did find his version of the song to be more understandable than his last English cover ONE LAST CRY.
