"A man's dream. A woman's will." We often chase superficial success in life. Comparing life to a voyage, "Jinsei" tells the story of a man who overcomes rough seas in pursuit of his dreams while facing various hardships and difficulties. The song, "Onna no Urami," sings of a woman's powerful determination to live a life of joy instead of holding resentment for being abandoned by a man. It sings about how we polish ourselves not by dressing up with makeup and clothes, but by beautifying our heart. These songs make you think about what life is and what true happiness is. ("Life" Words and Music by Ryuho Okawa / Song by TOKMA / Arrangement by Sayaka Okawa and Akito Koga) ("Onna no Urami" Words and Music by Ryuho Okawa / Song by kouta / Arrangement by Sayaka Okawa and Hyakkei)
