this is what i thought. It makes me think of that album for some reason when i listen to this. Actually it makes me think of Melody.


Gosh i'm so out of the loop with her, this was a surprise for me. I knew she worked on news material but was not expecting to get anything for a few months or so.

She sounds lovely in this. yeah, it's a typical Ayu piece, but not bad.

I love the cover, I'm not into ballads so I haven't listened to it yet.

The lyrics feel a little unusual.

Though I haven't told you
That perfect room
I really hated it


The lyrics are really pretty. Quite sad, maybe even desperate, for such a soft sounding song.

The words "I love you" and
Just being by one's side and
The moments that make me
Forget loneliness and

The warmth of our held hands and
The tenderness of your gaze and
Everything I forgot
You're pointing them out with all your might

The lyrics have a big "A song for XX" (the album) vibe.

Lovely typical standard nostalgic Ayu-ish ballad and with that I mean she is the master of making a ballad that takes me to this sad mellow nostalgic environment in japanese movie where the ending is the main role died because of an illness, and the lover is reminiscing that person.

LOL.

Lovely song. Raw voice. Ayu.

Yes, they really feel like lyrics she hasn't written in years.

"I've become
Unafraid of mornings"
I want to believe that someday a day will come I can say that


This feels so vulnerable, especially after "nothing can hurt me" We are the QUEENS.

OMG a new song, the music sounds like 2007, I like it. I hope for a 20th anniversary album on April.

I'm sure a full translation will help, but I'm curious about the title of the song and its meaning/connection.

And hopefully we won't just get a typical Ayu message that says something like, "By now you've all guessed why I called this song WORDS, right? I knew you would understand, my TA."

AHAHAHAHA

That's a really accurate depiction.
I really think she should communicate more. I've come here since years ago (more regularly in the past) and I can say that the overall level of understanding is, like, zero. =/

As for the title, there isn't much in the lyrics that indicates anything. I guess it's mostly about her learning to say something and her forgetting words and re-learning them.

Translation I've gotten + melody + vocals = <3 <3 <3
Three hearts out of five, I like this song, I like anything that comes from the bottom of Ayu's heart ...

OH? MY GODS? A new song? :O

Listening to it right now: It's so beautiful!!!

Probably I only have one reservation: The mixing isn't very good (which unfortunately is common in ayu's songs?) (I'm not an expert myself; it just sounds ...a tad noisy? here and there)

Very cute and effective track! I miss this kind of music and it is fun to have new words and melody in that same genre. I don't mind if this song is very "typical" from her, it is what she does best, and I know she will come with a more experimental sound anytime soon (she always alternates with both).

I really like this and I'm getting such a mix in terms of vibes from previous songs such as; Sweet Scar, Powder Snow and Summer Diary.

I never searched about her but I did it this morning and saw she is a former member of HAL. She also composed Summer Love.
