has anyone dabbled with romanising/translating the lyrics?

I don't even mind something like Koda Kumi's puff! it's an innovative use of technology that all of us are stuck with in quarantine

THIS. IS. SO. GOOD.

And the lyrics are beautiful as well. Damn, Ayu. Killing it.

Just listened to the song for the first time and ugh... it's an iconic, ground-breaking, show-stopping anthem.

It's even more incredible than I expected it to be, I'm so happy right now.

Ayumi's signature pose! LOL

I like the song. I'm happy she's making music again!

The lyric translation is on the AHS Discord, but I don't think it was posted on here yet.

After everything had been shattered to pieces, I was on my knees, not caring how unsightly it was
I was gathering them all up through my tears - I can't give up
Embracing one another after we quarrel
That's the way we are, that's how we do things
Even now, I still dream the same dream we had together

Everything has changed a lot more than we thought it would, hasn't it?
Like how we once ran to try to catch up to it, but we'd passed it right by

Or how we met in that same place

After you'd lost everything, what did you find salvation in? What did you long for?
Whatever the future looks like, even if it's a horrible one
My straight ahead
And your straight ahead --
Meet somewhere and overlap, combine and become "the light"

I also agree. The versions of ats as well as GAK sound way more rich and unique. I find the original boring and lackluster. The melody and her vocals are great, but the arrangement makes you think that there has to be something more. Live will be surely cool to hear it, but I don't care much for the original.

I actually like with chord version better, I found the actual version arrangement a bit too busy

I also prefer ats' remix, I really hope Ayu approaches some of the remix creators and asks them to create full versions.

thank you so much Koumori and remove-mom.

I love the lyrics; so uplifting that I felt like crying as I read it while listening to the song.

they give me the impression that she wrote this with a long-time and very dear friend in mind, instead of a romantic partner. the idea of quarrelling with a good friend, making up, acknowledging diverged paths, while staying true to each other, and chasing a common dreamómake me so emotional as I think about my good friends

OMG this song is so hot. I thought I'd be disappointed but damn, she proved me wrong.
When was the last time she released sick beat like this? Talkin' 2 Myself perhaps?

I'm so happy that it's not another ballad.

I really love it, I prefer this version to the remixes, the remixes were good but as someone said, they sound like remixes not original tracks, they are a bit too edgy and lack of melody to me. This version sounds more balanced and memorable to me.

Thanks for the lyrics Koumori and remove-mom I love them, they scream ayu to me and they are very meaningful with a great message. The song keeps growing on me and it was already amazing at the beginning I hope it charts well, it deserves it so much!

I think both friend and "ex-partner." Bet she is referring to Max Matsuura.

P.s. Thank you @remove-mom for the lyrics!

I think the 'partner' bits do refer to Max especially since he's producing her actively again after not doing it for like 20 years.

The original is far more superior than both combined. The song is simply perfect in every aspect.

I agree. For me this song represents her complicated journey with Max and is stating that their shared dream for her music is what has brought them together again - the epilogue to the TROUBLE lyrical era. Just my thoughts
