Wings of Words

For those who probably have no idea, "Chemistry" is the name of Japanese R&B male duo group. The duo consists of Kawabata Kaname (川畑 要) and Dochin Yoshikuni (堂珍 嘉邦.) They were the winner of Japanese talent show called "ASAYAN" held by SONY Music Japan in 2000. After the debut of the first single in 2001, the duo’s popularity keeps increasing with more and more of Number 1 singles and albums on Japanese ORICON chart. In my opinion, the duo’s name, "Chemistry," implies that their voices and music really have a good "Chemistry" together.

"Wings of Words" is Chemistry’s 15th and newest single to-date. In fact, the single is scheduled to be commercially released tomorrow (July 27, 2005.) The song is used as a new (and the 4th) opening theme for a popular Japanese animation called "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny." At first when I heard of this news, I was suspicious. The idea of Chemistry singing an opening theme for Gundam is weird because most of Gundam’s opening songs fall out of Chemistry’s characteristic. Anyway, when I had a chance to listen to this song, I liked it. "Wings of Words" sounds different from all Chemistry’s previous singles with stronger beat and harder music, but the song still has a Chemistry’s R&B feeling. The melody is not too fast and not too slow. The lyric is good and could easily be associated with Gundam’s theme.
「Wings of Words」
慰めながら、不謹慎だけど
泣いてる顔も綺麗で焦るよ
友達の距離、少し縮めたら
君は愛しい壊れ物だった

くじけず夢を見ることは、自分と戦ってること
日ごとに増える擦り傷を自慢してもいいくらいさ

空は飛べないけれど翼ならあげよう
それはもう一人じゃないと、君の孤独剥がす言葉

どんなペシミストも恋をして変わる
選んだ道がもし行き止まりなら、そこで迷えばいい

下弦の月がナイフのようだね
そう言いながらデジャブ感じてる

予感と戸惑いの中で、瞳は君を探してた
二人じゃないと開かない扉があるこの世界で

空は飛べないけど翼ならあるのさ
それはふと触れた視線で君がささやいてたシグナル

いつかリアリストは少年に戻る
そのとき僕は君のためにどんな夢を見るのだろう

なぜか互いの翼をもって僕らは生まれてきた
未来へと向かうために You know the heart singing.
The Wings of the words.

空は飛べないけれど翼ならあげよう
それはもう一人じゃないと、君の孤独剥がす言葉

どんなペシミストも恋をして変わる
選んだ道がもし行き止まりなら、そこで迷えばいい
