Welcome to our Video Games: Song Covers segment. Here I’ll be singing some of your favourite and most requested video game tracks.

Hi gamers! First of all, thank you to everyone who voted in last week’s video game song poll! Here I’m performing the winning song: “Sanctuary” from the Kingdom Hearts II soundtrack! Like the game’s first theme “Simple and Clean”, “Sanctuary” was both written and originally performed in English and Japanese by singer/songwriter Utada Hikaru. The Japanese versions of the songs are titled “Hikari” and “Passion” respectively. The Kingdom Hearts II soundtrack was composed and arranged by Yoko Shimomura, which consists of arranged Disney songs as well as Shimomura’s original works.

    “Sanctuary” Original English Lyrics:

    In you and I there’s a new land
    Angel’s in flight
    wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I
    My sanctuary, my sanctuary, yeah
    Where fears and lies melt away
    Music inside
    wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I
    What’s left of me what’s left of me now

    I watch you fast asleep
    All I fear means nothing

    In you and I there’s a new land
    Angels in flight
    wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I
    My sanctuary my sanctuary yeah
    Where fears and lies melt away
    Music inside
    wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I
    What’s left of me what’s left of me

    snwod dna spu ynam os
    My heart’s a battleground
    snoitome eurt deen I
    wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I
    snoitome eurt deen I

    You show me how to see
    That nothing is whole and nothing is broken

    In you and I there’s a new land
    Angel’s in flight
    wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I
    My sanctuary my sanctuary yeah
    Where fears and lies melt away
    Music inside
    wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I
    What’s left of me what’s left of me now

    My fears and lies
    Melt away
    wonk uoy naht noitceffa erom deen I

    “Passion” Original Japanese Lyrics:

    omoi daseba haruka haruka
    mirai wa dokomademo kagayaiteta
    kirei na aozora no shita de
    bokura wa sugoshi dake obieteita

    natsukashii iro ni mado ga somaru

    mae wo muitereba mata aemasuka?
    mirai wa dokoedemo tsuzuiterunda
    ookina ganban no shita de
    jidai no utsuroi wo miteitai na

    Kitto shirezu
    My heart’s a battleground

    nidoto aenu hito ni basho ni
    mado wo akeru

    omoi daseba haruka haruka
    mirai wa dokomademo kagayaiteta
    kirei na aozora no shita de
    bokura wa itsumademo nemutteita

    Zutto mae ni suki datta hito
    Fuyu ni kodomo ga umareru sou da
    Mukashi kara no kimari goto wo
    Tama ni utagaitaku naru yo
    Zutto wasurerarenakatta no
    Nengajou wa shashin tsuki kana
    Watashi tachi ni dekinakatte koto wo
    Totemo natsukashiku omou yo

    My fears my lies aozora no shita
