Persona 2 Innocent Sin ending theme 'Kimi No Tonari' (Next to You)

Kimi no Tonari (君のとなり*)? is the ending theme song for Persona 2: Innocent Sin. It was composed by Hitomi. The song was released in the album thermo plastic on October 13, 1999, and reached the top 2 of Oricon.

Although the song was not included in the PSX soundtrack, several in-game tracks are re-arrangements of its theme and credited to hitomi. Tthey are "Mt. Katatsumuri", "Main Theme A", "Main Theme B," and both city map themes arranged by Toshiko Tasaki, Masaki Kurokawa, and Kenichi Tsuchiya.

In the remake of the game, the song is called "By Your Side" and is slightly shorter than the original, while adding an instrumental version of it as well.

Lyrics

Original Romaji Translation

聞こえてる歌が心を揺るがせて 心が削られて
裸のままの自分が幻覚感じて 心をかよわせて

いつもお腹を空かせて一人で歩く少女
人と同じ瞬間に笑うのがキライだから
愛って言葉がなくならない様に
舞い降りた 舞い降りた 天使

今すぐに笑ってあげましょう 今すぐに歌ってあげましょう
少女から大人になるその瞬間に
灯火とざさぬように

汚んだ川で夢見る みにくいアヒルの子
きっと素顔求めて心の仮面はずして
いつしか白い翼につながる様に
光放ち ふりそそぐ 星に

今すぐに笑ってあげましょう 今すぐに歌ってあげましょう
永遠に光り輝く夢みつめ
歩いていけるように

愛はほらここにある この乳房で羽癒し
少女はまた歩きだす 果てしなく続く道へ

今すぐに笑ってあげましょう 今すぐに歌ってあげましょう
永遠に光り輝く夢みつめ
歩いていけるように

今すぐに笑ってあげましょう 今すぐに歌ってあげましょう
少女から大人になるその瞬間に
灯火とざさぬように

聞こえてる歌が心を揺るがせて 心が削られて
裸のままの自分が幻覚感じて 心をかよわせて

The song I can hear makes my heart shake
My heart is scraped away
While I am naked I feel the illusion
It passes through my heart

A girl who is always hungry walks alone
Because she hates to smile at the same second as others
In order to not lose the word 'love'
An angel slowly fluttered down

(**)
Soon I'll smile for you
Soon I'll sing for you
In that moment when a girl becomes a woman
To keep the light from going out

In the wild river there is a dreaming ugly duckling
Surely it desires a true face as it removes the mask of its heart
All of a sudden as if it were given white wings
The light is released from a falling star

(*)
Soon I'll smile for you
Soon I'll sing for you
Gazing at a dream that shines forever
So that I can keep walking and living

Look, love is right here
Winged intention in my chest
The girl will walk again
To a road that never ends

repeat (*)
