Spirited Away: Always with Me


My housemates say that I have become addicted to this song. I guess I am. I just can’t help.

And it is not just the melody, it’s the lyrics too.

Here’s the translation:



Somewhere, a voice calls, in the depth of my hear

May I always be dreaming, the dreams that move my heart.


So many tears, of sadness, uncountable through and through

I know on the other side, of them, I’ll find you


Every time we fall down to the ground, we look up to the blue sky above

We wake to its blueness, as for the first time


Though the road is long and lonely

And the end far away, out of sight


I can with these two arms, embrace the light

As I bid farewell, my heart stops, in tenderness I feel


My silent empty body begins to listen to what is real

The wonder of living, the wonder of dying


The wind, town and flowers, we all dance one unity

Somewhere, a voice calls in the depths of my heart


Keep dreaming your dreams, don’t ever let them part

Why speak of all your sadness or of life’s painful woes


Instead let the same lips sing a gentle song for you

The whispering voice, we never want to forget, in each passing memory


Always there to guide you


When a mirror has been broken, shattered pieces scattered on the ground

Glimpses of new life, reflected all around


Window of beginning, stillness, new light of the dawn

Let my silent empty body be filled and reborn


No need to search outside, nor sail across the sea

‘Cause here shining inside me, it’s right here inside me


I’ve found brightness, it’s always with me


p.s. I fall for Haku. Almost instantaneously.
