Yuna? singing "real Emotion" in the opening of Final Fantasy X-2.
"real Emotion" from Final Fantasy X-2 (Japanese)
Music

"real Emotion" is the opening theme of Final Fantasy X-2. Though presented as a performance by Yuna in Luca, in reality, it is sung by Leblanc, posing as Yuna through the First Steps Garment Grid and Songstress dressphere. Kenn Kato wrote the song and Kazuhiro Hara composed it.

Koda Kumi sang the Japanese version, while American singer-songwriter, Jade Villalon (now known as Jade Valerie) from the German pop group project Sweetbox, sang the English version.

I am in the place I was picturing
In the other side of my mind that day
I am at a loss,
However, I can't go back now
Everything is different from
The shape I saw in my dream
In reality...I'm even dizzy
Emotions swaying in the real world
I don't want to lose
I am hearing it in this heart that has
No choice but just to run again
You are not alone
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
I can hear you
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
I won't turn around by any means,
And I won't rely on you
Because if something happens,
You will always come to me right away
There is a thing I can do now
And that is believing...
If it's the truth, it is in this heart
Emotions swaying in the real world
What's supporting me is
Everything that you have taught me like that
And the current me,
So I am not alone
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What what what
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
I can hear you
Emotions swaying in the real world
Even though you feel it,
I will be there if you closed your eyes
We have a bond
So you are not alone
Emotions swaying in the real world
I don't want to lose
I am hearing it in this heart that has
No choice but just to run again
You are not alone
What can I do for you? (Yeah, yeah)
What can I do for you? (Nana, yeah)
What can I do for you?
I can hear you
What can I do for you? (Oh, oh)
What can I do for you? (Oh baby! Ohohoh, yeah)
What can I do for you?
I can hear you

Never thought that I would wind up by myself
If I told my wild imagination
But I here I am finding myself so lost
And there is a way for me to turn back
All the things I see
They are different from
What I had imagined they would be
Everything is different
Now I'm getting dizzy spells
It's real emotion, shakin' up the world
I'll never give it up
I don't ever wanna
Lose this far
No more than I can do
When I am just too wrong
And in my heart I can hear you say
That I am not alone
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
I can hear you
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
Never gotta look back, I'm already here
'Cause you gave me faith
I'm on my own now
If anything happens unexpectedly,
I know you are there to come and save me
What do I do now?
What can I do now?
For the truth that you have made me see
All that I can do now
Is believe in what I feel
It's real emotion, shakin' up the world
I'll be forever blessed for you to stand by me
Then, before
So many things you tell me
That's why I am here
You give me strength and now I know
That I am not alone
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What what what
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
I can hear you
It's real emotion, shakin' up the world
You're always here with me, so deep in my heart
And I am there
Beside you when you need me
Since I'm finally strong
Just close your eyes and you'll see me there
'Cause you are not alone
It's real emotion, shakin' up the world
I'll never give it up
I don't ever wanna
Lose this far
No more than I can do
When I am just too wrong
And in my heart I can hear you say
That I am not alone
What can I do for you? (Yeah, yeah)
What can I do for you? (Nana, yeah)
What can I do for you?
I can hear you
What can I do for you? (Oh, oh)

What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
I can't hear you
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
Far beyond the hazy borders of my heart
I could see a place
That's somethin' like this
Every now and then I don't know what to do
Still I know that I can never go back
But the things I've seen
In those hazy dreams
Can't compare to what I'm seein' now
Everything's so different
That it brings me to my knees
And though I know
The world of real emotion has surrounded me
I won't give in to it
Now I know that forward is the only way my heart can go
I hear your voice calling out to me
You'll never be alone
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
I can't hear you
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
I don't plan on lookin' back on my old life
I don't ever plan to rely on you
Even if by chance everything should go wrong
You'd come anyway and try to save me
Though from time to time
It's an upward climb
All I know is that I must believe
'Cause the truth I'm seekin'
Always was inside of me
And when I find
The world of real emotion has surrounded me
The many things that you taught me then
Will always be enough to get me through the pain
Because of you I am strong enough
To know I'm not alone
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
I can't hear you
And if I find
The real world of emotion has surrounded me
And I can't go on
You are there, the moment that I close my eyes, to comfort me
We are connected for all of time
I'll never be...
And though I know
The world of real emotion has surrounded me
I won't give in to it
Now I know that forward is the only way my heart can go
I hear your voice calling out to me
You'll never be alone
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
I can't hear you
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
What can I do for you?
I can't hear you
I can't hear you!

Game appearances[]

Final Fantasy X-2[]

Yuna? performing "real Emotion".

"real Emotion" is the second track on the first disc of the game's original soundtrack, titled "real Emotion (FFX-2 Mix)".

During the quick cuts near the end of the Japanese version's FMV, it goes from Yuna? to a backup dancer and to a background guitarist before returning to her. In the English version, the quick cuts focus on the Songstress dressphere. Yuna? smiles in the Japanese version but looks indifferent in the English one. In the HD Remaster, the Japanese version retains its original FMV. The overseas version uses the original overseas version, making "real Emotion" and "1000 Words" the only content in the HD Remaster not faithful to the International version.

Leblanc has stolen Yuna's Garment Grid to impersonate her and hold a concert in Luca, hoping to cash in on Yuna's fame and ruin her reputation. Yuna, Rikku, and Paine track her down but Yuna must don a moogle costume and keep a low profile while the others infiltrate the concert. While Leblanc performs on stage Rikku and Paine brawl with Leblanc's lackeys disguised as Luca security guards; after the performance, Rikku and Paine confront Leblanc on stage who escapes to the docks. YRP finally catch up with her and reclaim their Garment Grid and dressphere, the latter having a peculiar resonance with Yuna.

When Yuna later uses the Songstress dressphere to perform, she sings a song manifested from Lenne's feelings. Who composed "real Emotion" and how Leblanc came to know it in the game's world is unknown, though it is possible it was another song contained in the sphere itself.
