Overall Meaning

The song "FACE" by Globe is a reflection on adolescence, struggle, self-awareness and the importance of connection with others. The first verse opens with the contrasts between the sun and the fearless daytime and the night, which at times can be intimidating. They continue by saying that although they know their own escape route, self-reflection every day allows them to feel a sense of regret, as it can be all too easy for one's youth to disappear despite their passions continuing to burn inside. Life can be tough, and though the challenges aren't always easy, there's a sense of comfort to be found in the overwhelming power of one's driving force.


The chorus is the performer's longing for connection. They dream of being face to face with the one they yearn for, seeking them out in parks and illuminated by romantic moonlight. The person they're referring to is the one who they seek when they yearn for something more. The past they've shared together, the countless times their paths have intersected, they wonder how much of their experiences has been wasted by the passing of time. But they've resolved to take control of their future and take hold of their partner's hand, guiding them forwards with confidence. In this song, Globe expresses the importance of communication, the ability to confide in others, and fighting for one's passion, not alone, but alongside the ones you care for.

歌:globe
作詞:小室哲哉
作曲:小室哲哉
太陽が飲まれてく
夜がときどき 強がり
晴れた日は 月明かり
自分の逃げ道を知ってる
La la la… La la la…
La la la… La la la…

反省は毎日で
悔やまれることが多すぎて
青春が消えていく
でも情熱はいつまでつづくの

少しくらいは きっと役にはたってる
でもときどき 自分の生きがいが消えてく
泣いてたり 吠えてたり かみついたりして
そんなんばかりが 女じゃない

鏡に映った あなたと2人
情けないよで たくましくもある
顔と顔寄せ合い なぐさめあったらそれぞれ
玄関のドアを 1人で開けよう

There's no place
希望の中愛を求めていた
Face to Face
あなたを探しに公園まで散歩して
Feel the space
眩しすぎる月の明かりの下で
Need your caress
恥ずかしくて 照れくさくて
繰り返し 何度も同じ道歩いてたね

時間も言葉も無駄にして
通り過ぎてたね
Just your hand
先に君に気付いて欲しかった
Take a Deep Breath
深い愛はどこにむかって

どーもこーもない事情で 疑う余地もない私たちの
平凡でとがった ところもない
こんな毎日じゃ はじけようもないじゃない Fu… Wow…

経験が邪魔をする
ほらあの人の横顔 抱きしめて

バス停で おしゃべりしている学生
明日の事は考えて もちろんいるけど
切実さは 比べようもない程明るい
あの人の胸には すぐ飛び込めない

鏡に映った あなたと2人
情けないよで たくましくもある
顔と顔寄せ合い なぐさめあったらそれぞれ
玄関のドアを 1人で開けよう

In My Heart
びくびくしながら 瞳閉じるなんて
In your Soul
朝の光が 差し込むまで
In Their Eyes
永遠に今のままで
I SEE THE SKY
太陽にのまれてみたい

峠は越えたって終わらない 道は死ぬまで続くよ
胸が苦しくて困るよね
ときめきあの人で 決めたい 決めたい Fu… Wow…

バス停で おしゃべりしている学生
明日の事は考えて もちろんいるけど
切実さは 比べようもない程明るい
あの人の胸には すぐ飛び込めない

鏡に映った あなたと2人
情けないよで たくましくもある
顔と顔寄せ合い なぐさめあったらそれぞれ
玄関のドアを 1人で開けよう

globeの曲って中毒性ありすぎ。こんなにも心が震える曲今の時代にはない。

@sf2854

パワフルなのに繊細で
カッコイイのに女らしくて
KEIKOの歌声は唯一無二。

@user-zx6vg3uj7x

少しぐらいはきっと役には立ってる
でも時々自分の生きがいが消えてく

globeの中でもこれが一番好きです

@lemonsquash6510

1:19「でも時々自分の生き甲斐が消えてく」のところ格好良すぎて鬼リピートしてる。

@kaab8063

サウンドは言うまでなく、歌詞が良すぎるんよ。
大人の女性の迷い、弱さみたいなのが、ケイコの力強い歌声でリアルに響く。

@masayagi2

聴くたびに心と頭に残っていく。

小室哲哉の圧倒的なプロデュース力とカリスマ性
KEIKOの歌唱力と心に残る歌声
マークパンサーのルックス、調和力

現代でも微塵も古いと感じないこの感じ本当すげえ。

@user-ik9gw7bi2k

globeとはいったい何だったのかって考えた時、流動的に時代を駆け抜けた奇跡のバンドだったんだなと思う。批判を恐れずジャンルにとらわれず攻めて変化し続けたglobeってやっぱり凄い。小室ファミリーの中でも異色だったってことを解ってもらえないんだよなあ~。

@user-oz4cs8bs7s

今の時代にこのレベルの曲出てきたらえらいことなる

@okinawadevelopment7262

「バス停でおしゃべりしている学生 明日のことは考えてもちろんいるけど 切実さは比べようもないほど明るい あの人の胸にはすぐ飛び込めない」こんな心情を表現できる歌詞を考える小室哲哉は、やっぱり天才中の天才だと思う。

@kato-ni6rc

当時は明るい学生な私も40歳だ、この歌詞、痛いほど染みるぜ…
