Sugawara Sayuri - Kimi Ga Iru Kara  
Yes, it's the theme song to Final Fantasy XIII. Many have said that it's nothing special, but I love this song. The melody is simple, her vocals are simple, but the arrangement is powerful. And the lyrics are so sweet and heartfelt, for once not being about romantic love but the love that friends feel for each other.


「泣いたっていいんだよ」 君がふいにそう言ってくれたから
何だか嬉しくて 涙じゃなく 笑顔が零れた

不器用すぎる言葉で 君を傷つけてしまった
それでも 離れたりしないで
今もこうして 支えになってくれてるんだ きっと…

叶えたい願い 叶えたい夢 届けたい想い 全て
信じ続ける事が奇跡を呼んで 未来に繋がって行くよ
ずっと ねぇ ずっと 見守っていて欲しい
Dear My Friends

「君なら大丈夫だよ」 別れ際にそう言ってくれたから
感じてた孤独が その一言で 綺麗になくなった

新しい扉を開く それは誰でも怖くて不安だらけだけど
背中を押してくれた 君を思い出せば
力が溢れてくるからね

素直な気持ち 譲れないもの 正直な言葉 全て
声にして伝える事ができたなら 未来は広がって行くよ
いつも そう いつも 心に君がいるから
Dear My Friends

立ち止まっても 忘れそうになっても
何度も何度でも 前を向いて行くと誓うよ
見上げた空 光が差し込んでいる
君にまた逢える日まで

素直な気持ち 譲れないもの 正直な言葉 全て
声にして伝える事ができたなら 未来は広がって行くよ

願い 叶えたい夢 届けたい想い 全て
信じ続ける事が奇跡を呼んで 未来に繋がって行くよ
ずっと ずっと 見守っていて欲しい
Dear My Friends

"It's okay to cry" you suddenly said to me
And my tears dried and a smile escaped, I'm glad

I hurt you with my awkward words
But despite that, please don't leave
And thus you became my support, really...

I want to grant you your wishes, your dreams, let you know my feelings, everything
I kept believing, and a miracle happened. We'll be connected in the future as well
I want to watch over you, forever
Dear My Friends

"If it's you then it's okay" you said when we separated
Those words won't make okay the loneliness I feel

Opening a new door is scary for anyone, but
I remember you, and like a push to my back
my strength overflows

Honest feelings and words, things I couldn't convey, everything
If I could have raised my voice and told you everything, the future would spread out before us
So, always, you're in my heart
Dear My Friends

Even if we stand still or forget
Often we look towards the past and vow (1)
We look up to the sky and see the light shining through
Until we meet again

Honest feelings and words, things I couldn't convey, everything
If I could have raised my voice and told you everything, the future would spread out before us

I want to grant you your wishes, your dreams, let you know my feelings, everything
I kept believing, and a miracle happened. We'll be connected in the future as well
I want to watch over you, forever
Dear My Friends


(1) it's not said anywhere in the lyrics, but looking to the past and vowing means that often people look at what has happened and swear that if they ever are stuck in the same situation again, things will be different. They'll make it better.
