Utada Hikaru – Sanctuary lyrics

Haha haha

(I need more affection than you know)

In you and I, there's a new land
Angels in flight,
(I need more affection than you know)
My sanctuary, my sanctuary,
Where fears and lies melt away,
Music will tie,
(I need more affection than you know)
What's left of me,
What's left of me?

I watch you fast asleep,
All I fear means nothing
In you and I, there's a new land
Angels in flights,
(I need more affection than you know)
My sanctuary, my sanctuary,
Where fears and lies melt away,
Music will tie
(I need more affection than you know)
What's left of me,
What's left of me?

So many ups and downs
My heart's a battleground
(I need true emotions)
(I need more affection than you know)
(I need true emotions)

You show me how to see
That nothing is whole and nothing is broken
In you and I, there's a new land,
Angels in flight,
(I need more affection than you know)
My sanctuary, my sanctuary,
Where fears and lies melt away,
Music will tie,
(I need more affection than you know)
What's left of me,
What's left of me now?

My fears, my lies...
Melt away

(I need more affection than you know)

    'The words sung backwards are Riku talking to Sora. It is written backwards because he is the inverse of Sora. The words in (). '
    - Try listening to it forwards, and then listen to it backwards on YouTube and see what it translates to backwards. The whole song, that is, not just those certain parts. If you know the whole opening video, if you watch it backwards there's some creepy stuff. My boyfriend said it's Sora's story forwards, and Riku's backwards.
    Try it out~ x3.

    It means that Sanctuaries are inside of all of us, and the music means that hands will tie together in the midst in our hearts (this is why it's probably called "Kingdom Hearts"). The fears and lies will go away in this peaceful land of people, who always use their minds and their hearts, instead of using only their minds. Everyone is whole, not broken, and Angels have already taken their flight. I know this by experience, and that's why I'm always happy. People ask me why I'm always happy, but I say in my mind, "My Angels have already taken Flight. I've always have a Sanctuary."

    My feeling behind sanctuary is that you are with someone you love and when you are with them the troubles of the world disappear because your love for them and their love for you is so strong that the bad things of the world are no more when they're together. Hikaru-san was probably talking about how she felt with someone she loved and how that person made her feel safe. At least that's what I think.
