"Distance" as written by and Hikaru Utada....
Ki ni naru noni kikenai
Oyogitsukarete kimi made mukuchi ni naru

Aitai noni mienai nami ni osarete
Mata sukoshi tooku naru

Togirenai you ni Keep it going baby
Onaji kimochi ja nai nara tell me
Muri wa shinai shugi demo
Sukoshi nara shite mitemo ii yo

I wanna be with you now
Futari de distance chijimete
Ima nara maniau kara
We can start over
Hitotsu ni wa narenai
I wanna be with you now
Itsu no hi ka distance mo
Dakishimerareru you ni nareru yo
We can start sooner
Yappari I wanna be with you


Hitokoto de konna ni mo kizutsuku kimi wa
Kodoku wo oshiete kureru

Mamorenai toki keep on trying, baby
Yakusoku toori ja nai kedo trust me
Muri wa shinai shugi demo
Kimi to narashite mitemo ii yo

I wanna be with you now
Futari de distance mitsumete
Ima nara maniau kara
We can start over
Kotoba de tsutaetai
I wanna be with you now
Sono uchi ni distance mo
Dakishimerareru you ni nareru yo
We should stay together
Yappari I wanna be with you


I wanna be with you now
(I wanna be with you, I wanna be with you, & that is all I want, yeah)
Cuz I know this can't be forever
(I know this can't be forever)
We can start over, just you & me
(We can start all over)
I wanna be with you now
(I wanna be with you right now baby, that is all I want yeah)
Cuz I know this can't be forever
We should stay together, just you & me
I wanna be with you now
(Nobody but you in my life)
--Near or far--

I wanna be with you now
Keep it going
Keep it going don't stop
(Near or far)
I wanna be with you now
Keep it going
Keep it going don't stop
Keep it going...

    General CommentThe story behind this is sad. There was this young girl who was a huge fan of Utada in Japan. She wrote an essay about how she admired and wanted to be like Utada. Her essay won a contest at her school. Soon after, she was shot. When Utada heard of this she wrote this song.
