Thanks masa. I wonder what the song will sound like.

I wonder if she's referring to the moment she found out about her hearing loss.. It doesn't really sound like it's about Nagase lol.

So is it about Nagase, loss of hearing or her friend? I think it's the latter, it has that kind of feel...

I really think she's talking about MTRGL becomin HEAVENARK LOL j/k


It does fit more with this "deceased friend". A bit of cold water here, since I was expecting this song "Life" to convey more of a generic feeling or be more related to her fans in general, rather than being directed at one person only

They do sound like they're about her friend~
I guess it kinda makes sense, since Mirrorcle World is the extended ver. from a song from GUILTY, for Life to be a "continuation" of another GUILTY song.
But if Life is like that in order to keep the GUILTY theme to the single, then it might not be on the next album... I'd want the next album to have a different theme/feeling (not because I dislike GUILTY, I love it, I just want something new next time), so I guess I'd rather not see Life in it.

Plus, it would be nice for such an important 10th anniversary have only songs that you can't get anywhere else in her discography IMO.

EDIT: BTW thanks so much for the translation!! I can't believe I forgot to say that ^^;;

Thanks! I think that the questions in the song might be refered to ayu herself.

"What are you thinking of ?
How do I look in your eyes? "

and of course the first ones.

...I'm 98% sure it's about neither. It's pretty obvious to me that this song is about Ayu's departed friend that was sung about in untitled ~for her~.

The lyrics are nice as usual, but it really kind of sounds like Ayu is running out of ideas. These sound the same as a lot of her other lyrics :/
But thank you anyway.

I personally think that the song was written at a time that was probably close to her friend's death. I think it's perfectly fine that one particular event can inspire two songs. Especially one that we all know has affected Ayu a lot. So I don't really see a problem with her lyrics overlapping?

The thing is that the stories are always the same, the only difference lies in HOW the message is conveyed through her lyrics. She can use difference styles, so I personally still think it's fine at the end of the day. Elaboration on a same point is always good.
