Tomodachi; Friends - Sung by: Sakamoto Ma'aya (as Hitomi)

I won't forget our dreams, so...
Even though I'm far away from you,
I don't want to give up.
Even though we've always been rivals.
I don't need to hear any news,
Beloved friend.
I don't tell anyone else my foremost thoughts.
We'll meet once more, right,
Beloved friend.
I won't forget you,
Beloved friend.

It Was You - By Ashley Ballard with So Plush

It was you who showed me I got a friend in you
I always knew that you'd be right here for me
And It was you who stuck with me when the skies where blue
And it was you who stayed by my side, it was you!
Since the day you came into my life
I knew then that you'd be someone right by my side
Then you proved you're a friend to me
In my heart, forever you will always be

He Drives Me Crazy - Misty Song "Pokémon"

But he drives me crazy

A Date - Melfina character song "Outlaw Star: - Sung by: Melfina

When I will protect you.

Shape Of My Heart – Backstreet Boys

Send in this beautiful loneliness that's tragical
So help me I can't win this war, oh no
Touch me now don't bother if every second it makes me weaker

The Heart Wants What It Wants – Darren Hayes

I have told you just half the words
I've wanted to give you
Fear of rejection keeps my heart at bay
Feelings I'd rather not say
I'd rather have you close
Than never at all
But every now and then
When my world is closing in
I feel you breezin' through my mind
I can attempt to close my eyes
I can avoid the wrong or right
But something deep inside
Says my heart wants what it wants

Somebody – Reba McEntire

Somewhere out there

Is somebody

In A Different Light – Doug Stone

There's girls at the office
The guys always notice
When they walk by
But you're not the type
They don't know what I know
Or somethings' just don't show
Through tailored tweeds
And that's fine with me
Let them all think what they want to
As for me when I look at you

You
In a different light
Your hair falling down
With love in your eyes
In my mind
You're a beautiful sight
I see you in a different light
Just the way I saw you last night

Why can't I breathe whenever I think about you

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You're caught in a one way street

You Are Everything – Vanessa Williams

Who looked just like you

Mirror Mirror – M2M

Why did I let you walk away
When all I had to do was say I'm sorry

And in the heat of the moment I was to blame
I must be stupid, must be crazy, must be out of my mind
Now in the cold light of the day I realize

On a love that burns hot enough to last

Have You Ever? – Brandy

Have you ever found that one
You've dreamed of all of your life
You'd do just about anything to look into their eyes

Only to find that one won't give their heart to you
Have you ever closed you eyes and
Dreamed that they were there
And all you can do is wait for the day when they will care

Have some friendly conversation
And if you still don't have a clue
Unless there's something else you've got in mind
We've got better things to do

Without asking for the true reason of sadness, I tightly held you

Were you simply lonely? Is this feeling a fragile dream?

I Can't Read You – Daniel Bedingfield

I like you so much I'm acting stupid

I should play my hand all cool and calm
I can't breathe
I'm losing control of my heart

I Can't Fight This Feeling – Chicago

I can't fight this feeling any longer
Yet, I'm still afraid to let it flow
What started out as friendship has grown stronger.
I only wish I had the strength to let it show.
I tell myself that I can't hold out forever.
I say there is no reason for my fear.
'Cause I feel so secure when we're together.
You give my life direction, you make everything so clear.
Even as I wander, I'm keeping you in sight.
You're a candle in the window on a cold dark winter's night.
And I'm getting closer than I ever though I might.

Why Not – Hilary Duff

There may never be a sign
No flashing neon light

Or when the time is right (so)
Why not (why not), take a crazy chance
Why not (why not), do a crazy dance
If you lose a moment
You may lose a lot, so why not

Like It Or Not - Darren Hayes

Now I'm standing at a terminal waiting to connect to another plane
If I told you I just cancelled my flight to America
Would you call me insane?
Everything I am has been neatly contained into
The contents of a Samsonite bag
Me, a laptop, 2 suitcases and I'm coming to see you
Whether you like it or not

What Are You Waiting For? – No Secrets

Now here's a clue: her favorite color's blue
That's how she'll feel if she can't be with you
Cause you're the one who takes her breath away
When you look that way
So just for fun

And I'm everything you'll ever need

Are you crazy?
Open up your eyes and see what's going on, baby
There's someone at your door
Her heart is racing
Come on and make your move
What are you waiting for baby?

Each time I look in your eyes, my heart beats faster
I'm beginning to feel the invitation of love
In my dreams, you always tell me you love me but

Gunning Down Romance – Savage Garden

Love and other moments are just chemical reactions in your brain
In your brain
And feelings of aggression are the absence of the love drug in
Your veins, in your veins
Love come quickly
Because I feel my self-esteem is caving in
It's on the brink
Love come quickly
Because I don't think I can keep this monster in
It's in my skin

Love Games - Vocals: Yurie Kokubu - "City Hunter"

You're talking to me, your eyes sticking on me
I get defenseless when you call my name
It cuts right through me, the way that you do me
You've got me begging, boy, I'm on my knees
The games that you play, darling
Don't leave me this way
Your words abuse me, your actions amuse me
I close my eyes, but it's all the same
Your motions hurt me, emotions desert me
I feel so helpless when you walk my way

It's Just Love - Ending Song Gundam Wing

JUST LOVE! God, I hate him!

We Belong Together – Mariah Carey

I can't sleep at night
When you are on my mind
Bobby Womack's on the radio
Saying to me
"If you think you're lonely now"
Wait a minute
This is too deep (too deep)
I gotta change the station
So I turn the dial
Trying to catch a break
And then I hear Babyface
"I only think of you"
And it's breaking my heart
I'm trying to keep it together
But I'm falling apart

Dela – by Johnny Clegg

I think I know why the dog howls at the moon.
I think I know why the dog howls at the moon.
I sing dela, dela ngyanya dela when I'm with you,
Dela, sondela mama sondela, I burn for you.
I've been waiting for you all my life hoping for a miracle,
I've been waiting day and night, day and night.
I've been waiting for you all my life waiting for redemption,

I've been waiting day and night, I burn for you.

It must have been love - Roxette

I wake up lonely, there's air of silence in the bedroom and all around.
Touch me now, I close my eyes and dream away.
It must have been love but it's over now.
It must have been good but I lost it somehow.
It must have been love but it's over now.
From the moment we touched 'til the time had run out.
Make-believing we're together, that I'm sheltered by your heart.

Backstreet Boys – How Did I Fall In Love With You?

Alone tonight

The one, desire,
Believe, when I say

But we are two worlds apart,
Can't reach to your heart,
When you say,
That I want it that way

That was a river,
This is the ocean.
That never carried this much emotion.
Nothing compares to this deep devotion.

This is the ocean.

Tell me what kind of man would I be?

We Can Last Forever – Chicago

If you ask me how I feel
My love is for real

He Don't Love You Like I Love You – Daniel Bedingfield

He don't love you like I love you
Don't think about you like I think about you
He don't want to have your children
He don't wanna build his life around you
Tell me I should not be feeling what I am today
Tell me to silence my heart
Tell me we've been here before

For there is a wall between you and I
And he hasn't been treating you right
I've been watching it all
I seen you cry
And I just gotta tell you tonight

I hope I love you all my life

And then he kissed me

You are still a whisper on my lips
A feeling at my fingertips
That's pulling at my skin
You leave me when I'm at my worst
Feeling as if I've been cursed

Days when I couldn't live my life without you
Without you
Without you

I'll hear you knockin' at my door

I wait for you and you come around
And the world's alive
With the sound of kids on the street outside
When you walk into the room
You pull me close and we start to move
And we're spinning with the stars above

Oh, heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Oh, heaven is a place on earth

Human Nature - Madonna

You wouldn't let me say the words I longed to say
You didn't want to see life through my eyes
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
You tried to shove me back inside your narrow room
And silence me with bitterness and lies
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Did I say something wrong?
Oops, I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex
I musta been crazy
Did I stay too long?
Oops, I didn't know I couldn't speak my mind
What was I thinking

Seto's song

Even though we've always been rivals.
Then you proved you're a friend to me
I don't know why I let it faze me
The answer to these feelings
You can save me from the man I've become
You bring feeling to my life
Feelings I'd rather not say
But never really see
And that's fine with me
It's inevitable, it's a fact that we're gonna get down to it
Everyone's got a theory about the bitter one
You're caught in a one way street
I thought it was you
And in the heat of the moment I was to blame
It's hard to let it go
My lonely heart calls
Have you ever closed you eyes and
Have some friendly conversation
without asking for the true reason of sadness, I tightly held you
So kiss me
It don't take a word, not a single word
I'm not supposed to be this nervous
I only wish I had the strength to let it show.
Why not (why not), take a crazy chance
Would you call me insane?
Are you crazy?
I'm beginning to feel the invitation of love
And feelings of aggression are the absence of the love drug in your veins
I feel so helpless when you walk my way
I guess, I sorry...
There's just no rhyme or reason
When you are on my mind
I've been waiting for you all my life waiting for redemption,
It must have been good but I lost it somehow.
I never meant to feel this way
But we are two worlds apart,
Nothing compares to this deep devotion.
But if I had to live without you
Don't ask me why cause I don't even know

Forever Love Forever Dream
A feeling at my fingertips
I'm in a daze stumbling bewildered
