Always With Me (いつも何度でも) - Youmi Kimura (木村 弓).

The classic, evergreen closing theme song from Hayao Miyazaki's 2001, Spirited Away (千と千尋の神隠し), "Always With Me" (いつも何度でも, literally, "Always, No Matter How Many Times") was written and performed by Youmi Kimura (木村 弓), a composer and lyre-player from Osaka. The lyrics were written by Kimura's friend Wakako Kaku. The song was intended to be used for Rin the Chimney Painter (煙突描きのリン), a different Miyazaki film which was never released. The song is about finding inner peace, which Miyazaki finds fit perfectly with his coming of age of story of a girl who finds her inner strength.
