foxoffivetails While Utada is still an outstanding artist, this particular cover hits all of its marks. Love it! Favorite track: Face My Fears.

cloverblade I love this album so much! They are all so wonderful I couldn't decide which song was my favorite. I decided to choose Sanctuary because it was the one that stole my heart originally. However, I also love Destati, Darkness, and Dearly Beloved. Favorite track: Sanctuary ~After the Battle~.

about

Following the success of NieR: Glory to Mankind, Rozen and Reven are back for their second studio album as a duo, this time tackling the Kingdom Hearts saga.

Kingdom Hearts is full of classic dichotomies (good vs. evil, light vs. dark), unexplained lore, time travel, interconnected characters, and above all excellent music. All of which makes it the perfect ground to explore with multi-genre, large-scale arrangements. The Keyblade War weaves along the boundary between light and darkness using themes from across the series, from the heart-pounding “Destati” to the melancholy vocals of “Sanctuary ~After the Battle~.”

All music arranged and produced by Rozen and Reven. Featuring performances by the Sofia Session Orchestra & Choir, along with returning collaborators ETHEReal String Orchestra, Ro Rowan, Kristin Naigus, and more.

Track Name: Destati
Destati, tendi la mano

Forza, tendi la mano, è giunta l'ora
Destati, forza, destati

Destati, destati
È giunta l'ora
(Forza, è giunta l'ora, destati)

E ancora una volta
Apriranno le porte

È giunta l'ora
È giunta l'o...

Eh, come? Non lo vuoi?
Tuttavia t'appartiene
Ciò che hai perduto
Diventerà uno solo

Ancora una volta
Priranno le porte (destati)
Ancora una volta
Priranno le porte (destati)

E ancora una, una volta
Priranno le porte

Eh, eh, come
Non lo vuoi
Tuttavia t'appartiene
Ciò che hai
Perduto
Diventerà uno...
Track Name: Simple and Clean
You're giving me too many things
Lately, you're all I need.
You smiled at me and said,

"Don't get me wrong, I love you,
But does that mean I have to meet your father?"
When we are older you'll understand
What I meant when I said,
"No, I don't think life is quite that simple."

When you walk away
You don't hear me say,
"Please, oh baby, don't go."
Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
It's hard to let it go

The daily things
(like this and that and what is what)
That keep us all busy are confusing me
That's when you came to me and said,

"Wish I could prove I love you,
But does that mean I have to walk on water?"
When we are older you'll understand
It's enough when I say so
And maybe some things are that simple

When you walk away
You don't hear me say,
"Please, oh baby, don't go."
Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
It's hard to let it go

Hold me
Whatever lies beyond this morning
Is a little later on
Regardless of warnings the future doesn't scare me at all
Nothing's like before

Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
It's hard to let it go
Track Name: Sanctuary ~After the Battle~
In you and I there's a new land
Angels in flight
(I need more affection than you know)
A sanctuary, my sanctuary, yeah

Where fears and lies melt away
Music inside
(I need more affection than you know)
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
(I need more affection than you know)
A sanctuary, my sanctuary, yeah

Where fears and lies melt away
Music inside
(I need more affection than you know)
What's left of me, what's left of me

In you and I, there's a new land
(So many ups and downs)
(I need true emotions)
A sanctuary
My heart's a battleground
Where fears and lies melt away
(I need more affection than you know)
My sanctuary

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

Zutto mae ni suki datta hito
Fuyu ni kodomo ga umareru sou da
Mukashi kara no kimari koto wo
Tama ni utagaitaku naru yo
Zutto wasurerarenakatta no
Nengajou wa shashin tsuki kana
Watashitachi ni dekinakatta koto wo
Totemo natsukashiku omou yo
Track Name: Face My Fears
Breath, should I take a deep?
Faith, should I take a leap?
Taste, what a bittersweet
All my, all my life

Let me face, let me face, let me face my fears
Oh, let me face, let me face, let me face my fears
Won't be long, won't be long, I'm almost here
Watch me cry all my tears

(Oh, let me face, let me face my fears)

Lose, soon I've nothing to
Space, this is what I choose
A mile, could you walk in my shoes?
All your, all your life

Let me face, let me face, let me face my fears
Oh, let me face, let me face, let me face my fears
Won't be long, won't be long, I'm almost here
Watch me cry all my tears

Let me face, let me face, let me face my fears
Oh, let me face, let me face, let me face my fears
Won't be long, won't be long, I'm almost here
Watch me cry all my tears
Track Name: Don't Think Twice
How did I live in a kingdom of thieves
And people who say things they don't really mean, really mean

You're only everything I ever dreamed
Ever dreamed of, ever dreamed of
You must be kidding me, did you really think
I could say no

I want you for a lifetime
So if you're gonna think twice, baby
I don't wanna know, baby, I don't wanna know
Everything is just right
But if you're gonna think twice, baby
I don't wanna know, baby, I don't wanna know

I really don't get what everyone else believes
So why do I say things I don't really mean, really mean
I'm only crying 'cause I never dreamed
It'd take this long, it'd take this long

I want you for a lifetime
So if you're gonna think twice, baby
I don't wanna know, baby, I don't wanna know
Everything is just right
But if you're gonna think twice, baby
I don't wanna know, baby, I don't wanna know

Mune no takanari wo kasanete odorou yo
Ima wo ikiru koto wo iwaou yo

If you want to take it to an even higher level
All you gotta do is say the word, you know I'll follow
If you wanna take it to an even higher level
I don't, I don't bite
If you want to make it happen, nothing's impossible
All you gotta do is say the word, the walls will crumble
If you want to make it happen, nothing's impossible

I want you for a lifetime
So if you're gonna think twice, baby
I don't wanna know, baby, I don't wanna know
Everything is just right
But if you're gonna think twice, baby
I don't wanna know, baby, I don't wanna know

Kiss me once, kiss me twice, kiss me three times
Cross the line

Kiss me once, kiss me twice, anata wo kudasai

Kiss me once, kiss me twice, kiss me three times
Cross the line

Kiss me once, kiss me twice, kiss me three times
Be mine

Hi no noboru oto wo kata narabete kikou yo
Tomo ni ikiru koto wo chikaou yo
