New single 'Dreamed a Dream' by Tetsuya Komuro out July 31st, 2020


words : ayumi hamasaki
music : Tetsuya Komuro
arrangement : Yuta Nakano


MEGA download links of the acappellas
Acappella version
Acappella ver. with chords

Song is releasing digitally on 7/31 and composed by Tetsuya Komuro! Cover is kind of reminiscent of Rule, shot by Kazuyoshi Shimomura. Modelpress mentions his photos have a big impact!

Arranged by Yuta Nakano, as mentioned in the official audio.

Lyrics from acapella transcription + translation by remove-mom of the AHS Discord
Where does one draw the line between old things and nostalgic things?
The kings that I'm no longer able to use, or the queens that I no longer use

The place where things belong in my heart, or where I should put things
Hey, the cards I've done whatever with up until now -- I need to lay them out

Everything was smashed to pieces, and I was on my hands and knees saying it was fine
Crying while wanting to gather them all back up, I can't give up

Embracing one another after fighting
Saying that's just how it is
In that way
Even now
We're dreaming the same dream

furui mono to natsukashii mono wa doko de RAIN hiiteku?
tsukaenaku natta KINGU to tsukawanaku natta KUIIN da toka

chotto kokoro no naka no ibasho da toka okikata da toka
nee koko made nantonaku ni shiteta KAADO no haichi shinakucha

konagona ni kudakechitta ato buzama demo ii to haitsukubatteta
nakinagara hiroiatsumetetai akiramerarenakute

kenka shite dakiatte
sonnan datte
sou yatte
ima datte
issho no yume wo yume ni miteru


ねぇ ここまでなんとなくにしてたカードの配置しなくちゃ

泣きながら拾い集めてたい 諦められなくて

It really fits, following Promised Land etc. 2020 has been good for Ayu fans in terms of releases.

And the cover is stunning! The title is awesome and really interesting. Kinda reminds me of Seiko.

Yess!! Even though its acapella you can tell this is very GLOBE. Ayu is giving us Keiko but definitely still herself. Can't wait to hear the full version.

Oh my god I can't wait one week this is too good already!
Wonder what the arrangement is going to be like? I could imagine something along the lines of The Show must go on.

I was apprehensive at the prospect of a TK song because to me his compositions have always been hit-or-miss so far but OH BOY this one sounds like a complete HIT. I am loving both previews and hope this turns out to be the BANGER she totally deserves. I can't figure out what to feel about the cover because my feelings are still maxed out with excitement for her new music. I AM SO EXCITED.

I could see it getting a physical release with something else later like Ohia no Ki if they choose to release a version of Natsu no Trouble physically.

So all those Komuro bad blood rumours were bs. I like the chorus, reminds me of Identity.
