Ack, someone actually compared Ayu Lyrics to Twilight? Sorry, I don't really like Twilight that much...
But I agree; I got the feeling that she was talking to her mother in some parts, but then another I was thinking could be about her deceased friend?

The song's and lyrics are really sweet, so many emotional things. So this song is for her mother? Can't understand why she wrote the title Virgin Road...

Thanking her mother for her life, running away from home....it just seem to me like a song from a child to a parent - and it cannot be her father.
Yes I agree with you.
I think Virgin Road = her life. And the road she took.

The lyrics are really nice.

You are welcome.

I had thought that "virgin road" is a correct English. So I'm a little surprised this time to know it's not so. In Japan, the word "virgin road" is used only in the case of wedding ceremony at a church. It means the center aisle of the church. Usually the bride walks there, led by her father, to the place where the bridegroom waits for her, in the beginning of the ceremony.

Actually, I was surprised to read the lyrics, because they strongly suggested her marriage to come. At least, they seemed so to me.
