Always With Me (いつも何度でも, itsumo nando demo) is the theme song for the movie Spirited Away, performed by Youmi Kimura. The score is written by Wakako Kaku.

Production[1]

The director works on his previous movie Princess Mononoke while he listen to Youmi Kimura's music on the radio. After the release of the movie, he ask her to make a score for his upcoming movie Rin and the Chimney Painter.

Youmi and Wakako agreed and finished the recording. But it didn't get released, because the upcoming movie didn't get produced. Instead the director worked on Spirited Away. At the end of production he notices the songs fit as a theme song.

Lyrics

Yondeiru Mune no Dokoka Okude
 Itsumo Kokoro Odoru Yume wo Mitai

 Kanashimi wa Kazoekirenai kedo
 Sono Mukou de Kitto Anata ni Aeru

 Kurikaesu Ayamachi no Sonotabi Hito wa
 Tada Aoi Sora no Aosa wo Shiru
 Hateshinaku Michi wa Tsuzuite Mieru keredo
 Kono Ryoute wa Hikari wo Dakeru

 Sayonara no Toki no Shizukana Mune
 Zero ni Naru Karada ga Mimi wo Sumaseru

 Ikiteiru Fushigi Sinde Iku Fusigi
 Hana mo Kaze mo Machi mo Minna Onaji

 Yondeiru Mune no Dokoka Oku de
 Itsumo Nando demo Yume wo Egakou

 Kanashimi no Kazu wo Iitsukusu yori

呼んでいる 胸のどこか奥で
いつも心踊る 夢を見たい

悲しみは 数えきれないけれど
その向こうできっと あなたに会える

繰り返すあやまちの そのたびひとは
ただ青い空の 青さを知る
果てしなく 道は続いて見えるけれど
この両手は 光を抱ける

さよならのときの 静かな胸
ゼロになるからだが 耳をすませる

生きている不思議 死んでいく不思議
花も風も街も みんなおなじ

ラララララララララ・・・・・・・・・
ホホホホルルルル・・・・・・・・

呼んでいる 胸のどこか奥で
いつも何度でも 夢を描こう

悲しみの数を 言い尽くすより
同じくちびるで そっとうたおう

閉じていく思い出の そのなかにいつも
忘れたくない ささやきを聞く
こなごなに砕かれた 鏡の上にも
新しい景色が 映される

はじまりの朝の 静かな窓
ゼロになるからだ 充たされてゆけ

海の彼方には もう探さない
輝くものは いつもここに
わたしのなかに 見つけられたから

Somewhere, a voice calls, in the depths of my heart
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

Everytime we fall down to the ground we look up to the blue sky above
We wake to it's 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 painfull 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 miror 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 a brightness, it's always with me
