Klavier Gavin
She travels the globe, putting the sights she sees into song. Even though her appearance and voice are exotic... ...her songs remind us of something close, and warm. [...] She was gracious enough to put music to my lyrics tonight. "The Guitar's Serenade". ...I hope you enjoy it.

"The Guitar's Serenade" was a 2026 hit collaborative song between Lamiroir and the Gavinners, with Lamiroir on vocals, Klavier Gavin on guitar, and Machi Tobaye on piano. The song was performed once during a Gavinners concert; however, Lamiroir's bodyguard was killed during the performance.


During a trip to Borginia, Klavier Gavin, lead musician of the Gavinners, watched a performance by Lamiroir. Inspired by her performance, he described her voice as "divine". The two collaborated and wrote the "The Guitar's Serenade" together, with Lamiroir gifting Gavin a guitar, which he deeply cherished. Gavin invited Lamiroir to join him in a Gavinners concert in the United States, which she accepted, accompanied by her pianist, Machi Tobaye.

Guitar's Serenade

The live performance of "The Guitar's Serenade".

As part of the Gavinners' performance at the Sunshine Coliseum, "The Guitar's Serenade" was to be performed after the first intermission, with Lamiroir on vocals, Gavin on guitar, and Tobaye on piano. Magician Valant Gramarye was hired to arrange an illusion during the performance; while Gavin and Lamiroir were performing the song, Gavin took her cloak and pulled it downwards, causing her to seemingly disappear. Her cloak then floated across the stage to a platform on the other side of the hall, where Lamiroir reappeared as the cloak gracefully floated onto her again. While the illusion and performance went well, Gavin's guitar did mysteriously catch fire, ruining it; due to the fire happening during the lyrics, "Burn my love away. All away.", it was believed to be part of the show.

In reality, the "Lamiroir" on the stage was Valant Gramarye. The real Lamiroir sang into a headset to give the illusion that she was singing on the stage, while she crawled through the building's ventilation system to get to the platform. During her time in the ventilation shaft, she heard a gunshot, causing her to pause and make a minor mistake in the lyrics. After the concert, Lamiroir's bodyguard, Romein LeTouse, was found dead in her dressing room, with Tobaye being arrested as the prime suspect.

Tobaye's trial[]

In court, Tobaye was represented by rookie defense attorney Apollo Justice. Justice was able to deduce that the reason that Gavin's guitar had caught fire during the performance was that an illegal Borginian cocoon had been smuggled inside it by Tobaye and Daryan Crescend, of the Gavinners, and was destroyed as a precaution via a remote controlled igniter after LeTouse (who was an undercover Interpol agent) confronted Crescend and was subsequently murdered. It was initially believed during the investigation that the killer had followed the song's lyrics in committing the murder, but Justice exposed this as a ruse to obfuscate the order of events. Crescend was arrested for LeTouse's murder, while Tobaye was charged in the United States with smuggling; this was preferable to being charged in Borginia for the same crime, as that carried the death penalty.


After Crescend's arrest, Gavin swore never to play the song again. Nevertheless, the song became a huge hit, and it was played at Themis Legal Academy's 67th school festival, sung by Juniper Woods and accompanied by Gavin on acoustic guitar.


Guitar's Serenade lyrics

The original lyrics of The Guitar's Serenade, signed by Klavier Gavin & Lamiroir.

Japanese Version Romaji (Hepburn) English Version

Sugar, Sugar...
腕に 抱かれて
こころのカギは 今 盗まれた

...Pleasure... (The original lyrics read "Pleasure, Pleasure..." but in the concert recording, the line was sung, "...Pleasure..." due to Lamiroir being startled by the sound of a gunshot.)
いとしの メロディー
この身をつつみ 今 放たれた

Uh... uh...

胸を焦がす Fire...
恋人も 燃える
愛の弾丸よ Fire
いのちまで 奪って

Guitar, Guitar...
ふたりは 空へ

Sugar, Sugar...
Ude ni dakarete
Kokoro no kagi wa ima nusumareta

Itoshi no merodī
Kono mi o tsutsumi ima hanatareta

Uh... uh...

Mune o kogasu Fire...
Koibito mo moeru
Ai no dama yo Fire
Inochi made ubatte

Guitar, Guitar...
Futari wa sora e

Sugar, Sugar...
O that night, in your embrace
When you stole away the keys
my heart held on to so tight.

Pleasure... (The original lyrics read "Pleasure, Pleasure..." but in the concert recording, the line was sung, "Pleasure..." due to Lamiroir being startled by the sound of a gunshot.)
But a fleeting melody
It wraps itself around me,
And now through the air I fly.

Woh... Woh...

Burning on in my heart. Fire.
Burn my love away. All away.
Like a bullet of love. Fire.
Take my life away. All away.

Guitar, Guitar...
Up together to the sky.


  • The melody and lyrics of the song were created by Shu Takumi. The melody came about while he was playing his guitar at home. He then figured out what he wanted to use the song for, and the lyrics were written with this purpose in mind.[1]
  • The soundtrack version of the song removes the deviant parts from the in-game performance, including the “oohs” meant to emulate Lamiroir’s voice stopping to represent the interruption of the line “Pleasure, Pleasure…”, Machi Tobaye’s piano accompaniment changing, and Klavier Gavin’s guitar performance abruptly stopping.
