Always with me served as the closing theme to the popular 2001 anime film Spirited Away which is a 2001 Japanese animated fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki and produced by Studio Ghibli. And Always with me was written and performed by Youmi Kimura, a composer and lyre-player from Osaka. The lyrics were written by Kimuras friend Wakako Kaku. The song was intended to be used for Rin the Chimney Painter, a different Miyazaki film which was never released. In the special features of Japanese DVD, Hayao Miyazaki explains how the song in fact inspired him to create Spirited Away. The song itself would be recognized as Gold at the 43rd Japan Record Awards.
