"Be My Last" as written by and Hikaru / Utada....
Kaasan doushite
Sodateta mono made
Jibun de kowasanakya
Naranai hi ga kuru no?

Barabara ni natta koraaju
Suterarenai no wa
Nani mo tsunagenai te
Kimi no te tsunaida toki datte...

Be my last... Be my last...
Be my last... Be my last...
Douka kimi ga, Be my last...

Narenai doushi de
Yoku ganbatta ne
Machigatta koi wo shita kedo
Machigai de wa nakatta

Nani mo tsukamenai te
Yume miteta no wa doko made?

With my hands With my hands
With my hands With my hands
Watashi no te de Be my last...

Itsuka musubareru yori
Kon'ya ichijikan aitai

Nani mo tsunagenai te
Otona butteta no wa dare?

Be my last... Be my last...
Be my last... Be my last...
Douka kimi ga, Be my last...

    Song MeaningThis song is actually about her relationship fading away, and how we as youth's think we control our destinies, like we can easily fix a breaking relationship. And how our hands are the most destructive thing in mans life yet we try to hold on to things with them that are most dear to our needs. Hikki did a beautiful job on this song's.. it's actually my favorite of hers.

    And the video is really amazing as well. I agree with bemylast that she's dead and saves her childhood friend from death. I think this video proves that memories are the most precious of our existence.
    And theres a certain scene in the video where she's sitting on a bed while a younger version of her and her childhood friend are dancing around the room to the girls father playing the guitar, something both eerie and beautiful.

    General CommentBasically it's about how she was trying to get back to her boyfriend but she couldn't so she chooses to see him again for one last time. As you can see in the video, she keeps following her ex boyfriend and his new girlfriend which is her childhood friend. Finally she decides to let him go so they can be together happily, killing herself in the process.

    Itsuka musubareru yori
    Instead of being together again someday
    Kon'ya ichijikan aitai
    I just want to see you for one hour tonight

    Be my last... Be my last...
    Be my last... Be my last...
    Douka kimi ga (Please be my last), Be my last...

    I totally love her voice when she sings but her real voice is kinda low when speaking Japanese or English.

    General CommentActually..

    (At least this is what Wikipedia officially says) Utada is already dead, the man accidentally shot her when they were together and her child friend is now dating him. So she now follows her and is haunted by it since he senses her ghost but does not actually see her. When utada pushes her, she saves her. When she is struck by the car no one sees her because she is already dead. She was meant to save her friend and say goodbye and remind the man of what he did to her and to be with her friend

    I just want to see you for one hour tonight

    She wants the man to feel her for that one last tome before she is taken back to the "other world" the friend as well thats why she smiles when she sees her and we see that cool flash of light in the video.

    Such an amazing video. Thats what Wikipedia says *shrugs* who knows. It makes sense though since everyone walks past her.

    TranslationMother, why is it
    That a day will come
    When you’ll have to break down everything you built up?

    My collage has become scattered
    But I can’t throw it away
    My hand can’t grasp anything
    Even when I was holding your hand

    Be my last (4x)
    Wherever you are, be my last

    I can't be your companion, I tried my best
    I fell for the wrong person
    But it wasn't a mistake

    My hand can't grasp anything,
    How far do I have to go before I reach what I dreamed of?

    With my hands (4x)
    By my hand, be my last

    Instead of us being bound together someday
    I just want to see you for an hour tonight.

    My hand can’t grasp anything
    Who’s been playing the adult here?

    Be My Last (4x)
    Please, be my last
