Memoro de la Stono (Distant Worlds – Final Fantasy)

Seas invite in the evening sun
To light the somber abyss
Clouds dance up with the heavens’ stars
Chanting an air of joyous bliss

Water fades back from blue to jade
Guiding young rainbows high
Flowers bloom in to red and whites
Quenching our hearts as they run dry

Angels chained by a beast locked in slumber
Sin washed away by the swift flow of time

I may know the answers
Journeys over snow and sand
What twist of fate has brought us
To tread upon this land?

Blessed by light and the burden of shadows
Souls abide to an endless desire

I may know the answers
Though one question I still hear
What twist of fate has brought us
To roads that run so near?

Distant worlds together,
miracles from realms beyond
The lifelight burns inside me
to sing to you this song
To sing with you this song
To sing to you your song

Vocal soloist (english version), Susan Calloway

lyrics

Wind, and my heart swimming in collected words
Moved by the wind, in through the world.
Clouds, like a voice that we all recognize
Carry the holding future.Moon, on the sky as a trembling heart
Shown on the glass unsteadily.
Stars, shedding tears in an overflowing stream
I see the night all around me.Suteki da ne
Being together, all alone walking hand in hand.
And I want to go to your city
To your home, into your arms.That soul
Inside your body
From those conflicted nights
As from my dreams.Wind died away, and I feel all the words
Led by a gentle illusion.
Clouds are the future that cannot be attained
Told from impossible distance.The moon filled with night as it flowed through your heart
Such faraway reflections.
Stars, ripe like tears, like fruit falls from a tree
I wipe my dreams off the nighttime.Suteki da ne
Being together, all alone walking hand in hand.
And I want to go to your city
To your home, into your arms.

To feel your face
The touch of memory
And now that I awake
As from a dream.
