Album Cover of Hikari

"Simple and Clean" is a song heard in many installments of Kingdom Hearts. It is written and sung by Utada Hikaru and it is featured in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and their remakes. It is also featured in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.

Other versionsEdit

"Hikari" is the original, Japanese version of "Simple and Clean"; it was originally released on Utada's Deep River album. It was used in the Japanese versions of Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. The name Hikari (光) literally means Light in Japanese, a universal force in the Kingdom Hearts universe. The melodies of "Simple and Clean" and "Hikari" remain exactly the same, except from the verse "When you walk away..." up until "don't go." which varies slightly between the two different versions of the song.

PLANiTb made remixes of both "Simple and Clean" and "Hikari". This remix is heard during the opening movie of Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, and Kingdom Hearts Re: coded. The PLANiTb version is faster, shorter, and has more of a dance mix feel to it than Utada's original song.

-Ray of Hope MIX- is another remix of both "Simple and Clean" and "Hikari". It is heard during the opening movie of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue.

In addition, an orchestral arrangement of "Hikari" can be heard in Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts Final Mix in the opening menu cinematic which appears if the player lets the opening menu sit for about fifteen seconds. The orchestrated version is also featured at the end of each scenario of Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep.

English Lyrics (Simple and Clean)Edit

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

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

(Simple and clean)

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

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

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

Japanese-English Translation (Light)Edit

No matter what the time
I'm just alone
Destiny forgotten,
Even though I kept going.
Inside of the sudden light I awaken, In the middle of the night

Quietly, stand in the exit way, and in the pitch-black, take the light

And about the recent promises, is it just that I'm so anxious?
A wish that's wanting to be said, but shall be repressed
I'll introduce my family, you'll surely get along well

No matter what the time
We'll always be together
No matter what the time
Because you're by my side
The light known as "you" finds me, In the middle of the night

Enter a noisy street, and put on the mask of destiny.

I'll stop doing things that have no meaning, like thinking about the future.
Today I'll eat delicious things.
The future is always before us, even I don't know it.

It's not necessary to go right to the end,
Just keep going.
It's okay if the scenes
Go on one by one.
The light known as "you" reflects my scenario

Let's talk more,
And about the tomorrow that's before your very eyes.
Turn off the television, and look only at me.

No matter how well we're doing,
I don't believe in us completely.
But at those sort of times,
Because you're by my side,
The light known as "you" finds me, In the middle of the night.

Let's talk more,
And about the tomorrow that's before your very eyes.
Turn off the television, and look only at me.

Japanese Lyrics in Japanese Kana/Kanji (光)Edit

どんな時だって
ただ一人で
運命忘れて
生きてきたのに
突然の光の中、目が覚める 真夜中に

静かに出口に立って 暗闇に光を撃て

今時約束なんて不安にさせるだけかな
願いを口にしたいだけさ
家族にも紹介するよ きっとうまくいくよ

どんな時だって
ずっと二人で
どんな時だって
側にいるから
君という光が私を見つける 真夜中に

うるさい通りに入って 運命の仮面をとれ

先読みのし過ぎなんて意味の無いことは止めて
今日はおいしい物を食べようよ
未来はずっと先だよ 僕にも分からない

完成させないで
もっと良くして
ワンシーンずつ撮って
いけばいいから
君という光が私のシナリオ 映し出す

もっと話そうよ
目前の明日のことも
テレビ消して 私のことだけを見ていてよ

どんなに良くったって
信じきれないね
そんな時だって
側にいるから
君という光が私を見つける 真夜中に

もっと話そうよ
目前の明日のことも
テレビ消して 私のことだけを見ていてよ
