Persona 3 - Memories of You Kimi no Kioku

Original version.

Memories of You - Orchestral - Persona 3 Reincarnation

Orchestra version.

"Kimi no Kioku" (キミの記憶*)? is the ending theme of Persona 3. Composed by Shoji Meguro, with lyrics by Shigeo Komori, and vocals by Yumi Kawamura. It is the only song in the original game (with the exception of "Current Net Price Tanaka") to be sung in Japanese.

The melody is composed of two leitmotifs: the verse is based off both "Joy," the Social Link theme, and "Memories of the School" which is played during Aigis' last moments with the protagonist.[1] The chorus melody is based off "Memories of the City," which plays during the town in January.

In Persona 4 Arena, this song plays during conversations between Aigis and Yu Narukami in their own story modes.

There is another version sung by Shuhei Kita for Persona -trinity soul-.[2]

An orchestral version was made for Burn My Dread -Reincarnation: Persona 3-.[3]

The song is remixed for Persona 3 The Movie,[4] Persona Music Live Band,[5] and Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight.[6]

"Kimi no Kioku -Reload-" is the ending of Persona 3 Reload, with the song being sung by Azumi Takahashi with the addition of a violin hymn in the song.

Original Romaji Translation

風の声 光の粒 まどろむ君に 注ぐ
忘れない 優しい微笑み 悲しさ隠した瞳を
願うこと 辛くても 立ち向かう 勇気君に貰った だから行くね
夢の中 目覚めたら また会えるよ

遠い 記憶 胸に秘め 歌う

儚くたゆたう 世界を 君の手で 守ったから
今はただ 翼をたたんで ゆっくり 眠りなさい
永遠の 安らぎに つつまれて love through all eternity

優しく 見守る 私の この手で 眠りなさい
笑ってた 泣いてた 怒ってた 君の事 覚えている
忘れない いつまでも 決して until my life is exhausted

交差点 聞こえてきた 君に よく似た声
振り向いて 空を 仰ぎ見る こぼれそうな 涙こらえて

明日こそ いつの日か
もう一度君に会えると信じ一人 迷い
雨の夜 晴れた朝 待ち続けて

忘れないよ 駆け抜けた 夜を

眩く 輝く 一時 みんなと 一緒だった
掛け替えの ない時と 知らずに 私は 過ごしていた
今はただ 大切に 偲ぶよう I will embrace the feeling

君はね 確かに あの時 私の そばにいた
いつだって いつだって いつだって すぐ横で 笑っていた
失くしても 取り戻す 君を I will never leave you

儚くたゆたう 世界を 君の手で 守ったから
今はただ 翼をたたんで ゆっくり 眠りなさい
永遠の 安らぎに つつまれて love through all eternity

優しく 見守る 私の この手で 眠りなさい
笑ってた 泣いてた 怒ってた 君の事 覚えている
忘れない いつまでも 決して until my life is exhausted

眩く 輝く 一時 みんなと 一緒だった
掛け替えの ない時と 知らずに 私は 過ごしていた
今はただ 大切に 偲ぶよう I will embrace the feeling

君はね 確かに あの時 私の そばにいた
いつだって いつだって いつだって すぐ横で 笑っていた
失くしても 取り戻す 君を I will never leave you

nakushitemo torimodosu kimi wo I will never leave you

The voice of the wind and droplets of light flow over you as you doze
I will never forget the gentle smile and the eyes you hid in sorrow
You gave me the courage to wish (even when it hurts) and to fight, so I can go on
In my dreams (even when I wake up) I will see you again

I sing, with a distant memory in my heart

You defended this fragile and fleeting world with your hands
So please, fold your wings and rest
Sheltered by an eternal peace, love through all eternity

Rest now in my arms, as I watch over you
As I recall your joy, your sorrow, and your rage
I will remember you always, until my life is exhausted

At an intersection, I heard a voice similar to yours
I turned to look up at the sky, to force back my sudden tears

I continue to walk alone, aimlessly, believing that I will see you again tomorrow (someday)
Through rainy nights (and sunny days) I wait for you

I'll never forget that dark night, we made it through

That blindingly brilliant moment when we were all together
Those precious times I didn't realize I should cherish
Now all I can do is remember, I will embrace the feeling

I know for a fact, you were there by my side
You were always always always there, smiling
If ever I lose you, I will find you, I will never leave you

You defended this fragile and fleeting world with your hands
So please, fold your wings and rest
Sheltered by an eternal peace, love through all eternity

Rest now in my arms, as I watch over you
As I recall your joy, your sorrow, and your rage
I will remember you always, until my life is exhausted

That blindingly brilliant moment when we were all together
Those precious times I didn't realize I should cherish
Now all I can do is remember, I will embrace the feeling

I know for a fact, you were there by my side
You were always always always there, smiling
If ever I lose you, I will find you, I will never leave you
