^well true... I guess that's why they didn't give any of them out earlier.

It's too bad non of the songs have tie-ins, just when ayu's releasing 3 songs for the japanese public's taste...

Thanks to ownsarai for the great set!

I think I've gotten to the point where I can translate her lyrics in my head without actually knowing much Japanese

But still, translation please!

This is pretty rough and it's nearly midnight but I think I have this right...

Hey, if I were to deceive you
Can you say I'd be forgiven?
Hey, what on earth is the standard
by which everyone else is measured?
Hey, if nothing from here on out
matters anyway,
if we assume there's a line,
Then who decides where it is?

Really beautiful lyrics. I wonder which song is this. Sounds like a different matter from Zutto preview she posted before.

I'd say:

Hey, what standard do other people use to measure?
Hey, if there is a line that says "going any further than this is wrong"
Then who decides where it is?
I left out the first sentence, because we need more context to understand who is doing what. Gotta love the lack of pronouns in Japanese.

Anyhow. I love the sound of these lyrics <3

aaahhhh i missed that "tte" there - your translation is better, haha

The first two lines could definitely be "If someone were to deceive you, would you say they're forgiven"... context is definitely a tricky beast in Japanese.

It sounds like a winter version of "Will" which is pretty great! I like it so far.

Damn it, it sounds really dull! Not powerful or "epic" at all. it's too sweet and soft. If anyone wants to speak about "generic" songs, so far, this could end up being the definition. It really doesn't sound like a winter ballad to me in the traditional sense at all.

And so the dream slips through the cracks between my fingers like grains of sand...

I will wait for other songs... Hoping for one good track. I've moved my poker chips to the rock-ballad.
