Verse 1

Your life had a purpose, you fought on till the very last day.

Your star crossed lover was snatched by a girl from centuries away.

But you went on, so divine, singing the song of truth.

You've inspired me with your positive attitude.

Chorus

And I'm writing a song to a woman from an anime,

A woman who doesn't really exist, whom I don't know.

But you taught me the true meaning of strength

And courage and sacrifice, and letting go.

This is to Kikyo.

Verse 2

I lost a part of me again and again, but I regained my faith,

Just like how you were resurrected every time after death.

You loved one guy forever, you lived differently.

I've chosen to do the same, you inspire me.

Chorus

And I'm writing a song to a woman from an anime,

A woman who doesn't really exist, whom I don't know.

But you taught me the true meaning of strength

And courage and sacrifice, and letting go.

This is to Kikyo.

Bridge

You lived an unhappy life, I probably share the same fate.

But I've been ready to embrace it of late.

I don't have a bow and arrow

Like you Kikyo,

I don't have demons to slay.

But I've got my own role to play.

Chorus

And I'm writing a song to a woman from an anime,

A woman who doesn't really exist, whom I don't know.

But you taught me the true meaning of strength

And courage and sacrifice, and letting go.

This is to Kikyo.
