"Why" is the theme song of Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-. It is performed by J-Pop star Ayaka Iida and featured in the game's final FMV. An instrumental version of "Why" titled "Why (CCFFVII Mix)" plays when Angeal Hewley, Zack Fair's friend and mentor, perishes in Modeoheim. The song's country feel alludes to Zack's "country boy" origins.

Japanese Kanji[edit | edit source]

瞳の奥がぼやけて見えない
心の底の 気持ちはあるの?
世界の全てを手にしたとしても
それがあなたの幸せなの?
Why 孤独な空を見上げるの?
Why 笑って見せてよ
言葉にするのが下手な
あなたの性格わかるから
遠い昔に何があったの?
視線をそらす あなたの瞳に
一人でさみしい夜に抱きしめられる
そんな温かさ知ってる?
Why どうして形にこだわるの?
Why 心を開いて
大きな荷物を背負った
あなたを受け入れられる力
あるわ 信じてみて...
Ohh... Yeaahh
自由な人は不器用で...
自由な人は不安で...
Why 孤独な空を見上げるの?
Why 笑って見せてよ
言葉にするのが下手な
あなたの性格わかるから
信じてみて
Why...?
Ohh... Yeaahh
Why...?
Oh oh... Yeaahh
Why...?

Japanese Rōmaji[edit | edit source]

Hitomi no oku ga boyakete mienai
Kokoro no soko no kimochi wa aru no?
Sekai no subete o te ni shi ta to shite mo
Sore ga anata no shiawasena no?
Why kodokuna sora o miageru no?
Why waratte mise te yo
Kotoba ni suru no ga hetana
Anata no seikaku wakarukara
Tōi mukashi ni nani ga atta no?
Shisen o sorasu anata no hitomi ni
Hitori de samishī yoru ni dakishime rareru
Son'na atataka-sa shitteru?
Why dōshite katachi ni kodawaru no?
Why kokorowohiraite
Ōkina nimotsu o seotta
Anata o ukeirerareru chikara
Aru wa shinjite mite?
Ohh... Yeaahh
Jiyūna hito wa bukiyōde?
Jiyūna hito wa fuande?
Why kodokuna sora o miageru no?
Why waratte misete yo
Kotoba ni suru no ga hetana
Anata no seikaku wakarukara
Shinjite mite
Why...?
Ohh... Yeaahh
Why...?
Oh oh... Yeaahh
Why...?

English translation[edit | edit source]

I can't see out of my blurry pupils
Do you have any feelings deep down inside?
Even if you have the everything in the world,
Is that what makes you happy?
Why do you look up at the lonely sky?
Why don't you laugh and show me?
I'm not good at putting it into words
Because I know your personality
What happened to you in the distant past?
In your eyes that avert your gaze
I can hug you on lonely nights when I'm alone
Do you know that kind of warmth?
Why do you care about the shape?
Why open your heart?
I'm carrying a big load on my back
I have the strength to accept you
Believe me...
Ohh... Yeaahh
Free people are clumsy...
Free people are insecure...
Why do you look up at the lonely sky?
Why don't you laugh and show me?
I'm not good at putting it into words
Because I know your personality
Believe me
Why...?
Ohh... Yeaahh
Why...?
Oh oh... Yeaahh
Why...?
