New single 'オヒアの木' composed by Kazuhito Kikuchi out now!

https://twitter.com/seinaxayu1002/st...24076935655427

A CM was shown during the final episode of M! There's a new song!

Quote:
「拝啓 わたしの小さくて

 永遠に世界一の天使へ」





約2年ぶりとなる新曲「オヒアの木」が

本日0:00より配信限定でリリースされました!

ayuにとってデビュー以来初の”日本語タイトル”で、

「Who...」や「HEAVEN」を手掛けた菊池一仁氏作曲による珠玉のバラード。

是非チェックしてください!

「オヒアの木」を聴く:https://avex.lnk.to/ohianoki

「オヒアの木」歌詞を見る:https://www.uta-net.com/song/287373/
First Japanese title since debut! Name on sites seems to be "Ohianoki" for Apple Music but "Ohia no Ki" is probably what we'll end up using.

words : ayumi hamasaki
music : Kazuhito Kikuchi
arrangement : Yuta Nakano

According to tweets and other information, this song was written for her son and is like a letter to him. The name comes from the Ohia flower/tree in Hawaii it seems and may correspond to a Hawaiian legend!

Kazuhito Kikuchi gave Ayu a song maybe like 10 years ago or so and mentioned it on his blog but Ayu never ended up using it. This might be that song.

also if you interested in having most HQ covers, on iTunes it's 2000x2000

初めましての涙だったり
初めて指繋いで眠った日とか
初めて全てがダメな気がして
初めて隣で泣き明かした日とか
初めてだらけの2人だったね
でも君とだから
乗り越えられたんだよ

笑う時にね片方の目が
きゅっと閉じるとこがおんなじ
眠い時にはふくれっつらして
下唇つきだすのもおんなじなんだよ

君は君の名をいつ知るんだろうか
それとももう知ってるかな
レフアがオヒアの木に寄り添うように
優しく強い花を咲かせたように

そんな想いを込めたんだよ

冷たい雪の降る日は
この胸で休まればいい
激しい夏の日には
どこまでも自由に駆け出せばいいと
そうやって見守っていくよ
ずっと

君は君の名をいつ知るんだろうか
それとももう知ってるかな
君が君の名をいつか尋ねたなら
その時はどんな風に言おう

Ah- レフアがオヒアの木に
寄り添うようにと花を咲かせた日
Ah- まあるく漂う風が
新しく私らしい生きる意味を教えてくれた

そんな事を伝えようかな
"Haikei watashi no chiisakute
Eien ni sekai ichi no tenshi e"

Hajimemashite no namida dattari
Hajimete yubi tsunaide nemutta hi toka
Hajimete subete ga DAME na ki ga shite
Hajimete tonari de nakiakashita hi toka
Hajimete darake no futari datta ne
Demo kimi to dakara
Norikoeraretanda yo

Warau toki ni ne katahou no me ga
Gyutto tojiru toko ga onnaji
Nemui toki ni wa fukurettsurashite
Shita kuchibiru tsukidasu no mo onnaji nanda yo

Kimi wa kimi no na wo itsushirundarou ka
Soretomo mou shitteru ka na
REFUA ga OHIA no ki ni yorisou you ni
Yasashiku tsuyoi hana wo sakaseta you ni

Sonna omoi wo kometa nda yo

Tsumetai yuki no furu hi wa
Kono mune de yasumareba ii
Hageshii natsu no hi ni wa
Doko made mo jiyuu ni kakedaseba ii to
Sou yatte mimamotte iku yo
Zutto

Kimi wa kimi no na wo itsushirundarou ka
Soretomo mou shitteru ka na
Kimi ga kimi no na wo itsuka tazunetanara
Sono toki wa donna fuuni iou

Ah- REFUA ga OHIA no ki ni
Yorisou you ni to hana wo sakaseta hi
Ah- ma aruku tadayou kaze ga
Atarashiku watashirashii ikiru imi wo oshiete kureta

Sonna koto wo tsutaeyou ka na

It seemed too weird for them to advertise it everywhere. Sounds really nice!

I'm glad there's a new song buuut I'm not really feeling it. I'm just not into slow/ballad songs lately.

I'm in love with it. It has the typical Ayu elements to it but somehow it feels different. I love that she used a Japanese title.
