'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.

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.

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."
