^ Maybe you're in my hands???

Who knows lol...

Well these lyrics were not AT ALL what I was expecting xD! I was thinking the lyrics would be more more along the lines of Sparkle . Either way, the lyrics are not bad .

yep.
Sorry for generalization, but there are several ways to translate just one sentence (and to add an explanation), I believe.

But I'm not sure whether masa-san would like other ideas or not.
Like I'm not sure whether masa-san has seen my comments to his translations of Lady Dynamite and 1 Love.

(ah, my comment to 1 Love is also a comment to your question, truehappiness. Have you seen it?)

Anyway, I'm happy if there's a good place to talk about interpretations and translations of ayu's lyrics.

Oh, I saw it! Haha, thanks for that. I still somewhat am confused by those lines... but I'll probably get it sooner or later.

I think masa might be a bit busy, is all...

Given the context, it sounds like it's related to responsibility. XD

There's a lot of women empowerment in this album, which is always exciting. Thanks for the translation!

For the palms line, I think it'd be better to say "You are in the palm of my hand" since that's how it's usually said... I think. Right? -scratches head-

Sexy little things

愛しているって どういう事?
君が1番だよってどういう事?
ねぇ そんなに慣れた身ぶりと手つき
いったい何度繰り返したら出来るの?

無意識ってとても怖いものよね
気付いてないところが憎めないけど

女はいつも何にも知らなくて
潤んだ瞳で頷いているだけだって
思っているなら それは大きな間違い
だってあなたはこの手の上

望むすべてをって どういう事?
幸せにしてあげるってどういう事?
ねぇ そういうのって
典型的な自己満足だとかって呼ぶものなんじゃない?

与えられるだけが喜びじゃない
与えあうそれこそが...

女はいつも受身な姿勢でいて
意思も欲望も もうないように見せる事で
環境提供してるの
つまりあなたはこの手の上

女はいつも何にも知らなくて
潤んだ瞳で頷いているだけだって
思っているなら それは大きな間違い
だってあなたはこの手の上

女はいつも受身な姿勢でいて
意思も欲望も もうないように見せる事で
環境提供してるの
つまりあなたはこの手の上

女心と何とかの空は
誰にも読めない
Unofficial (?) lyrics from http://music.geocities.jp/teamayu19781002/sexy.html.

masa, what is the ????????????? in your romaji/translation for? It doesn't look like you're missing anything...

"Sexy little things" is like a second "my name's WOMEN" (just a tad more sarcastic!). I really like it a lot, when Ayu shows the strong side of us girls!!

GIRL POWER! ^.~
THIS!
Ayu never fails to disappoint with her lyrics!!!

i think it's when she sings with a robotic voice,
like "Omotte iru nara" in the first chorus.

They miss the same part in the unofficial lyrics you posted.

Ah.

It seems like they got the first one too and completely ignored the 2nd one.

I guess we'll have to wait for uta-net then, hm...

I think it's "kakko tsuke rareru". (Of course, we should wait for the official lyrics of not only this song but also others. For example, Don't look back has two important lines where people hear differently.)
Quote:
思っているなら それは大きな間違い
omotte iru nara sore wa ookina machigai
If you think so, it's a big mistake

だってあなたはこの手の上
datte anata wa kono te no ue
Because I have you in my hand [*1]


(格好つけられる) 環境提供してるの
(kakko tsuke rareru) kankyou teikyou shiteruno
By doing so, women provide you with the environment (where you can act cool)

つまりあなたはこの手の上
tsumari anata wa kono te no ue
In other words, I have you in my hand [*1]


[*1] Literal translation is "you are on my hand". This has a nuance that "You are playing on the stage I set up for you. So, you may think you are behaving as you like, but actually you are acting just as I planned."
I hope this explanation helps you to understand that "provide you with the environment" and "anata wa kono te no ue" have a similar nuance.
