"Simple and Clean" is the theme song for Kingdom Hearts, written and sung by Utada Hikaru, featured in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, as well as their remakes, and is also featured in Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded, and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance

Other Versions Edit

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.

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

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. The orchestrated version is used during the opening movie of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.

Another, softer arrangement of Hikari plays in Kingdom Hearts when Sora stabs himself with the Keyblade of People's Hearts. 

Lyrics Edit

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 and more

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


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 understandIt'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
