If this song doesn't sell, it means that I don't have what it takes to be an artist. If that happens then I'll give up with good grace.

Koda Kumi

real Emotion/1000 no Kotoba (real Emotion/1000の言葉) is a single containing the J-pop songs used in Final Fantasy X-2, sung by Koda Kumi. Unlike the original soundtrack versions, these tracks are full versions. The songs featured on the single were also featured on Kumi's album Grow into One as well as her first compilation album Best ~first things~.

The single itself was significant in the singer's career, as it was set to be her deciding single. Koda Kumi pinned her hopes on the single and decided that, should the single not do well, she would retire as a singer. However, after the single was a hit, Koda Kumi's hopes were restored in her ability and she continued singing.
