1. Until I Say
2. Sunshine Of My Day
3. tobira

This is Rie fu’s 6th single and it was released on July 19, 2006. The single reached #99 on the Oricon Weekly Charts. The title track was used as the theme song for the Japanese release of the British version of the movie Heidi

Until I Say is a very bilingual song. More than half of the song is in English, which is common for Rie fu so it was no surprise. To be honest, I think the song is very beautiful. The combination of piano and strings is amazing, especially towards the end of the song when percussion, brass, and a light electric guitar kick in. The English lyrics are very simple but they work. My favorite lyric from this song is from the chorus: Oh I think I’m living a dream come true. One more kiss and I will fall through. All I ever longed for was you.

The next track, Sunshine Of My Day, is completely in English. The song is very upbeat and it reminds me a lot of the songs from her second album ROSE ALBUM. This song would have been great as the A-side if Rie fu added some Japanese lyrics.

The final track, tobira, didn’t really impress me. It just kind of drags on but at least it’s short, similar to another Rie fu song I didn’t like: Tsuki no Ue.

Overall Rating 

3½ stars
