"Sanctuary" is the theme song for Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and is used as the ending theme in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. It is sung and written by Utada Hikaru. Its Japanese counterpart is called Passion, and it reached #2 in the Oricon Singles Chart in 2006.

Both versions of the song contain reversed lyrics, voiced by Utada herself. The reversed lyrics are in English in both versions. They include; "My heart's a battleground" which is played in English even in the Japanese version of the song. The reversed portion of the songs are "I need more affection than you know"; in the "Battleground" sections, "So many ups and downs" and "I need true emotions" are the two other examples of the reversed lyrics.

At the end of Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, a different version, called -after the battle- is used. This version is much quieter for most of the song until the ending part of it, which uses a faster instrumental than the rest of the song.

Like Simple and Clean, there is an instrumental version of the song that is used for the menu trailer of Kingdom Hearts II called "Passion -Kingdom Orchestra Instrumental Version".

Lyrics

English Version (Sanctuary)

I need more affection than you know


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 will tie
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 will tie
I need more affection than you know
What's left of me, what's left of me


So many ups and downs
My heart's a battleground
I need true emotions
I need more affection than you know
I need true emotions


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


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 will tie
I need more affection than you know
What's left of me, what's left of me now


My fears, my lies
Melt away


I need more affection than you know

Japanese Version (Passion)

I need more affection than you know


Omoidaseba haruka haruka

Doko made mo kagayaiteta
Kirei na aozora no shita de

I need more affection than you know
Sukoshi dake obiete ita


Natsukashii iro ni

Mae wo muiteru no
Mata aemasu ka

Doko e demo tsuzuiteru 'n da
Ooki na kanban no shita de
Jidai no

Utsuroi wo mite itai na


Hitoshirezu
My heart's a battleground
I need true emotions
I need more affection than you know
I need true emotions


Nido to aenu
Hito ni basho ni

Omoidaseba haruka haruka

I need more affection than you know
Doko made mo kagayaiteta
Kirei na aozora no shita de
Bokura wa

Itsumademo nemutte ita


My fears my lies
Aozora no shita


I need more affection than you know

Japanese > English Translation

I need more affection than you know


When I remember far far back
The future
I need more affection than you know
Was bright for as far as I can see
Underneath the beautiful blue sky
We were
I need more affection than you know
A little afraid


The windows are becoming stained
With a nostalgic color


If I face forward will I meet you again?
The future
I need more affection than you know
Continues on and on
Underneath a large signboard
I want
I need more affection than you know
To watch as the times change


Hidden
My heart's a battleground
I need true emotions
I need more affection than you know
I need true emotions


I open the window
To those people and places I can never go to


When I remember far far back
The future
I need more affection than you know
Was bright for as far as I can see
Underneath the beautiful blue sky
We would
I need more affection than you know
Keep sleeping


My fears, our lies
Underneath the blue sky


I need more affection than you know

Japanese Lyrics in Kanji

I need more affection than you know


思い出せば遙か遙か
未来は
I need more affection than you know
どこまでも輝いてた
きれいな青空の下で
僕らは
I need more affection than you know
少しだけ怯えていた


懐かしい色に
窓が染まる


前を向いてればまた会えますか
未来は
I need more affection than you know
どこへでも続いてるんだ
大きな看板の下で
時代の
I need more affection than you know
移ろいを見ていたいな


人知れず
My heart's a battleground
I need true emotions
I need more affection than you know
I need true emotions


二度と会えぬ人に場所に
窓を開ける


思い出せば遙か遙か
未来は
I need more affection than you know
どこまでも輝いてた
きれいな青空の下で
僕らは
I need more affection than you know
いつまでも眠っていた


My fears, our lies
青空の下


I need more affection than you know
