lol "those guys" were probably me
When I first read the liner notes, it left me under the impression that ayaka worked on the lyrics with her friend, and now that I read them again, it's still quite unclear. They only mention music by Tom, nothing about the lyrics themselves besides the fact that they're a good mix of English and Japanese. I therefore assumed, since ayaka has been writing her own stuff for years, that she would be involved. That's basically it. But if she's not credited, I guess she did not in the end.
