I can see how these lyrics can apply to any of these things, which is probably why it's called something as all-encompassing as "Life".
That's a very good point. 07 was one of so much change all at once for her, I can definitely see how not only it would be horrible or at least painful, but almost humbling for Ayu, too. To be honest going through even *one* of those changes is a pretty big deal, but to have them all happen one after another is quite awful. I'm just glad she's able to take this kind of stance on it and show it in her music.

i always start off my music playlist with this song!!

i honestly think that this is one of ayu's most refreshing song in a very, very, very, very long time. it's brings back that old pop-ish sound of ayu that i first fell in love with, and this song wouldn't be out of place in an album like say, "my story". some may think that it is boring, but it definitely sounds different from what we've been getting lately.

and after carefully studying the lyrics, i've begun to appreciate this song even more.

one of ayu's best song in a while.

I dunno if repetitive is the word...i mean, most artists have themes they focus on in the lyrics they write. So i don't think they're repetitive as much as just maybe expected form Ayu. Her styles is definitely evident in every line of the song, but it's not boring to me yet. I like these lyrics. I mean, half the artists out now have at least a dozen songs with "i love you" as the theme and refrain for the song. She's still doin her thing.

Winter Whispers

For all the words unspoken
I keep to myself because Iím selfish
I donít speak to you because I think youíre selfish
Canít there be an easier way?

My mind trespasses a vacant heart
But it soon learns of the orphan of secrets
Held inside
Why canít I just foster my emotions
Like you had
Like all of you had?

In the stormy season
We often admire the rain
Why is it so admirable?
Whatís so blissful about crying skies?
Nothingís blissful about running mascaras
And gasping orbs of emotion
Smeared liner of depression
Drenched cheeks with forged smiles

The colder it is
The warmer we truly feel, right?
So canít you just accept the secrets
And put away the selfish mindset
Because I canít do the same thing.

-Yume (ME!! i wrote it!! lalala...)

Exactly! I think she should write about some new things.. She could still keep her STYLE. Good writers have a style. Sentence structures, word use, etc. that is trademark for them. That doesn't mean she has to write her songs so much about the same theme. Srsly. @____x
