Don’t Look Back, Count Down, Sexy Little Things And Lady Dynamite Unconfirmed Lyrics + Translations

Here are the unconfirmed kanji + translations of Ayu’s new songs which are found through Japanese BBS.
Don’t look back
戻れない戻らない帰る場所はもうない
いくら振り返っても返られない
綺麗な足跡に塗り 替えたところで
自分のところだけまだ褪せない
Don’t look back かっこ悪い
Don’t look back ところこそが愛おしい
戻れない戻らない帰る場所はもうない
いくら振り返っても返られない
綺麗な足跡に塗り替え たところで
自分の心だけ~せない
Don’t look back 笑えるのは
Don’t look back 通り過ぎたからこそ
進みたい進めないそうやって迷っているってことはもう迷ってない
ここで留まるならいくらか楽かもね
だ けど胸を焦がす刺激もない
ねえ誰もかもを満たすのは一番輝いてた頃の
自分なんてそれは悲しすぎるわ
Don’t look back
進みたい進めないそうやって迷っているってことはもう迷ってない
ここで留まるならいくらか楽かもね
だ けど胸を焦がす刺激もない
戻れない戻らない帰る場所はもうない
いくら振り返っても返られない
綺麗な足跡に塗り替えたとこ ろで
自分のところだけまだ褪せない
どんな風に~
あなたなら
Don’t look back
More under the cut!
count down
思いこがれた桃源 郷は強くてとても冷たい風が
この身を目覚めさせてくれたと同時にどこかへ消えていたわ
私は笑うわけでも 泣くわけでもない
ただ絶 望なんか遥かに通りすぎたから
無になってしまっただけなの
何にも感じない…
遠くから聞こえてきているわ
もうすぐ でほら終わりが始まる
真っ直ぐに受け止めていくわ
私のこの左側で
同情なんかはいらないわ
そこがもしも奈 落の底だとしたなら [...]
