"Depend on you ~Depend on me~" is a song from the Japanese language album TRANS//LATION. It is the English cover version of the Japanese original titled "Depend on you", which was performed and written by J-pop artist Ayumi Hamasaki. Hamasaki personally contacted Jones' label expressing her support and approval of Jones' cover and his lyrics after reviewing the track. [1] "Depend on you ~Depend on me~" was originally titled "Depend on me", but the title was changed before the song was released to the public. The English lyrics of this song were written by Jones, making this song his original.

"Depend on Me" was originally going to be featured on Bentley's debut album One Hand High, but production of the album was cancelled. A few months after the cancellation announcement, a "full demo" version of "Depend on Me" was made secretly available through Bentley's website during January of 2009. This demo featured slightly different instrumentals, most notable was the percussion, which leaned the track to be more of a Pop-Rock style song. The officially released version was revamped to be a Dance style track prior to being added to TRANS//LATION in order to keep the album's message of being strictly "J-Pop DANCE Covers".

Depend On You ~Depend On Me~ - Bentley Jones

Taken from TRANS//LATION

I search the night for some time to kill
But all I can find are stars
In the wake of my biggest mistake
We will all lay down my heart

I stumble on old memories
Like a ghost town I forgot
And now I’m lost on empty streets
That keep getting dark

Oh I don’t know who you will become
I don’t know where you’ll be
All I can promise you is history
The future’s a place where we cannot be

When all is said and done
I will be free
And when I’m gone
You can’t depend on me
In time you’ll see
You stand alone
Into our own

The rain upon the window pane
Is a hundred whispering words
They tell me where the door is to leave
And how I should run

Oh I don’t know who you will become
I don’t know where you’ll be
All I can promise is you won’t have me
Just close your eyes, that’s where I’ll always be

When all is said and done
I will be free
And when I’m gone
You can’t depend on me
In time you’ll see
You stand alone
Into our own

When all is said and done
I will be free
And when I’m gone
You can’t depend on me
We make a path
That we must tread
Into the red

Oh I don’t know who you will become
I don’t know where you’ll be
All I can promise you is history
The future’s a place where we cannot be

Although I know
It’s true
About me and you
I can’t deny that I depend on you
Now I have found you’ve let me down
Never again

When all is said and done
I will be free
And when I’m gone
You can’t depend on me
In time you’ll see
You stand alone
Into our own

When all is said and done
I will be free
And when I’m gone
You can’t depend on me
We make a path
That we must tread
Into the red
