To get an idea about the song , Kajiura-san wrote yesterday in her blog:
The song for the movie, “Kara no Kyoukai Mirai Fukuin”, which will be releasing this fall, will be sung by Kalafina. It’s a song that came to me (lit. fell into my head) as I finished the last scenes from the early footage of Mirai Fukuin (laughs).
As I listened to the dialogue/lines from the last scene, the first lines for the lyrics just popped out. And as I thought, “Ahh… I want to start the song with these words”, Keiko-chan just suddenly started singing in my head. I thought, “Oh no!”, scrambled to grab the score sheet (^_^:), and wrote the song whilst chasing after the melody flowing in my head. The lyrics are more or less (half) as they were at the time. There’s no mistake that this song was the quickest to be completed in Kalafina’s history.
So, it’s a really simple song but it’s something that feels very right to me. I hope that, as a song for Mirai Fukuin, it is something that everyone will enjoy!
