"Passion" as written by and Hikaru / Utada....
omoidaseba, haruka, haruka
mirai ha doko made mo kagayaiteita
kirei na aozora no shita de
bokura ha sukoshi dake obieteita

natukashii iro ni mado ga somaru

mae wo muiteireba mata aemasu ka
mirai ha doko he demo tuzuiteirunda
ookina kanban no shita de
jidai no uturoi wo miteitai na

nido to aenu hito ni, basho ni
mado wo akeru

omoidaseba, haruka, haruka
mirai ha doko made mo kagayaiteita
kirei na aozora no shita de
bokura ha itu made mo nemutteita

zutto mae ni suki datta hito
fuyu ni kodomo ga umareru sou da
mukashi kara no kimarigoto wo
tama ni utagaitaku naru yo
zutto wasurerarenakatta no
nengajo ha shashin tuki ka na
watashitachi ni dekinakatta koto wo
totemo natukashiku omou yo

    General Commentthis is an amateur translation by me. watch out.


    if i remember - far, far away
    the future shines into forever
    beneath the beautiful blue sky,
    we were frightened, but only a little

    in nostalgic colours, a window is stained

    to turn behind, can we meet again
    the future continues into forever
    beneath this huge billboard,
    i want to see the fading of this time

    to those never met again, somewhere
    open a window

    if i remember - far, far away
    the future shines into forever
    beneath the beautiful blue sky,
    we were sleeping, eternally

    who i liked so long ago
    in winter i heard will have a child
    the thing that is decided from long ago
    once in a while i begin to want to doubt
    it was never forgotten
    i wonder if there will there be a photo in the next new year's card
    the thing that we could not do
    comes to me so nostalgically

    General Commentto me, this is a song about time passing, looking back at how childish we were, and looking forward to the long future ahead of us. i think it captures stable friendships of young people becoming adults perfectly.

    also i noticed a translation mistake. the future shined into forever, in the past tense.

    but yeah. it's a beautiful song of moving forward. childhood may glitter, but the future continues forever.

    General CommentOh well, it's a far better translation than I could ever give. Is she saying something in the background? It's hard to tell...

    General CommentI love this song! Definitely one of my favorites from Utada. It's really catchy, and the music is very capturing. The part I love most is on the version of "Passion" from the video game, Kingdom Hearts 2. . . ."My heart's a battleground". The way the music is when she says that is just....wonderful.

    General CommentYeah, there are definitely a few english lines thrown in the Kingdom Hearts version. Near the end it sounds like she is saying "my fears, my lies."

    General CommentWhat she's singing in the background that sounds warped and is repeated throughout the song is actually a deliberate reversal. When you listen to that clip of the song reversed, she's singing, "I need more affection than you know." I absolutely love it all. Utada's brilliant.

    General CommentOoh, yeah, I just read the lyrics elsewhere with that in it. Thanks, though. That's why I couldn't get what she was saying (hahaha)
