Thank you for the translation. 2 different people? That's interesting.

Yeah, I am sure we will eventually figure out who the "yous" are. Are they other people or other sides of herself? Or the "words"?

You're welcome, everyone. ^^
I don't know how accurate the translation is, but I think I at least captured the essence of the lyrics.

It kind of feels like a "past love" and "new love" type of deal. Or that anata is the listener and kimi someone close to her (a friend or lover).
Well, maybe she'll eventually talk about it in an interview.

Thank you, Aga-chan! <3 The lyrics are beautiful and touching. I think there's relation with the privacy invasion she suffered this year (when they posted her house and address) and all this estigma of being lonely queen. Very deep.

I don't like translating, and never will, but it should give an overall understanding of the lyrics until someone posts a more skillful translation.



WORDS

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

I don't have a cozy place anywhere
In this controlled world
Where even breathing isn't allowed

Though I thought
"But if I laugh
Without making anyone sad anymore
Somehow (it) can be let go past"...

Alone I was hit by the rain
On that day when I escaped crying
Without completely knowing
What will be from here on even now

Only one thing, I wished that this night
Wouldn't dawn
"If there's a world where tomorrow doesn't come..."
I searched (for it)

Come to think of it, peaceful nights
And nights that revolve to the extend I roll over
They were like that

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

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 were pointing them out (to me) with all your might

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 are pointing them out (to me) with all your might



I want to point out that she uses anata in the beginning and kimi at the end. Both mean "you", but I think they likely are two different people.
I'm crying and screaming at the same time. These lyrics are so sad.
Thank you very much for the translation!

I'm addicted to WORDS. I've listened to it the whole day.
It's not something new but I feel lot of emotions and simplicity from it.

Great job Ayu!

It makes me want to try to get ticket for the 3rd chapter of her tour in december.

It's a nice song (nothing incredible but very Ayu so happy with that) and great lyrics but I feel I would enjoy it if the quality was better. It sounds kind of muffled?

thank you so much!

the song is so typical recent ayu. tbh I can't differ all these new songs from sixxxxxx and etc.

lyrics may be good but change the beat and tempo, ayu. it just feels like a bubble gum what lost taste after being chewed for way too long.

I expected that kind of song, typically Ayu-ish but quite effective. I'll always be conned by these kind of music ^^
The lyrics are very good too. Kinda remind me of "sorrows"...
Thanks for sharing !

Cute song, sounds like an anime ending. It's the typical type of music she's been releasing these past years... which I'm not really found of. It's not bad but it's nothing spetacular, pretty basic tbh.

I don't understand the comparison between what she's been releasing in these past years and the style of WORDS. It's a little similar to sixxxxxx, but WORDS is much more similar to her style in the early 00s. I can hear more of tracks like Endless sorrow and even her ballads from LOVEppears/Duty/I am... in this than I can hear any comparison to songs from A ONE or MADE IN JAPAN.

And I agree, it does sound like an ending theme. I like it. WORDS is a nice track that reminds me of actual Ayumi Hamasaki.

^ It gives me vibes that it could've come from LOVE again, A ONE or sixxxxxx.
