    Melodies of Life



    (English)

    Alone for a while I've been searching through the dark
    For traces of the love you left inside my lonely heart
    To weave by picking up the pieces that remain
    Melodies of Life-Love's lost refrain

    Our paths they did cross, though I cannot say just why
    We met, we laughed, we held on fast, and then we said good-bye
    And who'll hear the echoes of stories never told?
    Let them ring out loud till they unfold

    In my dearest memories, I see you reaching out to me
    Though you're gone, I still believe that you can call out my name

    A voice from the past, joining yours and mine
    Adding up the layers of harmony
    And so it goes, on and on
    Melodies of life
    To the sky beyond the flying birds-forever and beyond

    So far and away, see the bird as it flies
    Gliding through the shadows of the clouds up in the sky
    I've laid my memories and dreams upon those wings
    Leave them now and see what tomorrow brings

    In your dearest memories, do you remember loving me?
    Was it fate that brought us close and now leaves me behind?
    A voice from the past, joining yours and mine
    Adding up the layers of harmony
    And so it goes, on and on
    Melodies of life
    To the sky beyond the flying birds-forever and beyond.

    If should I leave this lonely world behind
    Your voice will still remember our melody
    Now I know we'll carry on
    Melodies of Life
    Come circle round and grow deep in out hearts
    As long as we remember

    What it says on the tin, what are some elements from this game you love that everyone else seems to get all grumpy about when you bring it up?

    Would a sequel ever work for this game?

    Thread Starter: Jinx

    I saw Wolf Kanno's thread and thought it was going to be something about if SE would ever return to this story/universe. They returned to FFVII so late
