"1000 Words" ("1000 no Kotoba") is the name of the ballad Yuna sings from atop the Celsius at the concert in the Thunder Plains in Final Fantasy X-2. It was written by Kazushige Nojima, Noriko Matsueda, and Takahito Eguchi. The Japanese version was sung by Koda Kumi, and the English version was sung by Jade from German pop group "Sweetbox".

A different English version was also done by Koda, which was released on her single "Come With Me".

While Yuna sings the song, Lenne and her memories of Shuyin and Zanarkand are displayed, summoned by the Songstress Dressphere Yuna is wearing. In the Japanese version, the 1000 Words concert FMV does not feature a duet. Instead, Yuna transforms into Lenne and performs a solo.

English Translation

Are those words of yours
Just a kindness of the dream?
It even conceals
All the lies
It's unfair

Giving you the cold back
To the departing you
I was listening
You're fighting alone?
It's unfair

"I'll return home"
Your voice bypasses me
I was stubborn
And acted all tough
As I turn back time
Should I have called you?
What if I shed tears asking you not to go?
I can finally do
Anything now

I couldn't say
Those 1000 words
I'll send them to
Your distant back
As wings

Those 1000 words
I couldn't say
Will lean against your
Injured back
And embrace you

The dream continues as
I think of you
Pretending to forget about
Those days
It's unfair

"I'll write you a letter"
Your voice seems to look away
I was stubborn
And acted all tough
As I turn back time
Should I have gotten upset at you?
What if I dropped my shoulders telling you I couldn't wait?
I can finally do
Anything now

Can you hear it?
Those 1000 words
I'll send them to
Your unseen back
As wings

Can you hear it?
Those 1000 words
Will lean against your
Tired back
And embrace you

Those 1000 words
I couldn't say
Lalalala...
I'll send them to your back
As wings

Can you hear it?
Those 1000 words
Lalalala...
They'll lean against your back
Lalalalala...

Lyrics (Kumi English version)

I know that you lied to me
Using gentle words to shelter me
Your words are like a dream
But dreams could never fool me
It's not right to me

I'm acting so distant now
Turned my back as you walked away
But I was listening
That you fight your battles far for me
It's not right to me

"Don't you worry 'cause I'll come back"
I could hear you speaking as you walk to the door
I have to be strong
To hide the pain
When I turn back the pages
Crying might have been the answer
What If I shed my tears and beg you not to leave
But now I'm not afraid
To do what's in my heart

Those thousand words
Have never been spoken
So far away
I'm sending them to you wherever you are
Suspended on shiny wings
Those thousand words
Have never been spoken
They cradle you
Make you no longer dare seem so far away
And hold you forever

That dream isn't over yet
I pretend and say "I can't forget"
I still live in my day
You've been there with me all the way
It's not right of me

"Don't you worry 'cause I'll write to you"
I could see you speaking as you look away
I acted strong
To hide the love when I turn back the pages
Anger might have been the answer
But if I shook my head and say that I can't wait
But now I'm not afraid
To do what's in my heart

Those thousand words
Have never been spoken
So far away
I'm sending them to you where ever you are
Suspended on shiny wings
Those thousand words
Have never been spoken
They cradle you
Make you no longer dare seem so far away
And hold you forever

Those thousand words
Have never been spoken
Lalalala
I'm sending them to you where ever you are
Suspended on shiny wings
Those thousand words
Have never been spoken
Lalalala
Making all of that years feel like lonely days
Lalalala

Lyrics (International Version)

I know that you're hiding things
Using gentle words to shelter me
Your words were like a dream
But dreams could never fool me
Not that easily

I acted so distant then
Didn't say goodbye before you left
But I was listening
You fight your battles far from me
Far too easily

"Save your tears cause I'll come back"
I could hear that you whispered as you walked through that door
But still I swore
To hide the pain, when I turn back the pages
Shouting might have been the answer
What if I cried my eyes out and begged you not to depart
But now I'm not afraid to say what's in my heart

Though a thousand words
Have never been spoken
They'll fly to you
Crossing over the time
And distance holding you, suspended on silver wings

And a thousand words
One thousand confessions
Will cradle you
Making all of the pain you feel seem far away
They'll hold you forever

The dream isn't over yet
Though I often say I can't forget
I still relive that day
You've been there with me all the way
I still hear you say

"Wait for me, I'll write you letters"
I could see how you stammered with your eyes to the floor
But still I swore
To hide the doubt when I turn back the pages
Anger might have been the answer
What if I'd hung my head and said that I couldn't wait
But now I'm strong enough to know it's not too late

Cause a thousand words
Call out through the ages
They'll fly to you
Even though I can see
I know they are reaching you, suspended on silver wings

Oh a thousand words
One thousand embraces
Will cradle you
Making all of your weary days seem far away
They'll hold you forever

Oh, a thousand words
Have never been spoken
They'll fly to you
They'll carry you home, and back into my arms
Suspended on silver wings

And a thousand words
Call out through the ages
They'll cradle you
Turning all of the lonely years to only days
They'll hold you forever.

Oh, a thousand words.

Lyrics (English Concert Version)

I know that you're hiding things
Using gentle words to shelter me
Your words were like a dream
But dreams could never fool me, not that easily.

I acted so distant then
Didn't say goodbye before you left
But I was listening
You'll fight your battles far from me, far too easily.

"Save your tears, 'cause I'll come back"
I could hear that you whispered as you walked through that door
But still I swore
To hide the pain I when turned back the pages
Shouting might have been the answer
What if I'd cried my eyes out and begged you not to depart?
But now I'm not afraid to say what's in my heart!

'Cause a thousand words
Call out through the ages
They'll fly to you
Even though I can't see
I know they're reaching you
Suspended on silver wings
Oh, a thousand words, 1000 embraces
Will cradle you, making all of
Your weary days seem far away
They'll hold you forever!

Oh, a thousand words
a thousand words
Have never been spoken
oh yeah!
They'll fly to you
They'll carry you home
carry you home
And back into my arms
Suspended on silver wings
on silver wings!
And a thousand words
oh!
Call out through the ages
call through the ages!
They'll cradle you
oh yeah!
Turning all of the lonely years to only days
only days!
They'll hold you forever!
Oh, a thousand words.
