Distant Worlds IV: more music from FINAL FANTASY[]

An orchestral arrangement performed by Distant Worlds Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus and Susan Calloway is included on this album.


Children of the land do you hear
Echoes of truths that once rang clear
Two souls intertwined
One true love they did find
Bringing land and heavens near
But flames that burned full bright soon fell dark
Memories dimmed by shadowed hearts
In the waxing gloom
Did wane the lovers' moon
Watching as their worlds drift apart.
One soul's cry
A passion welling within
A final plea to her kin
Yet this bond of hope
By treachery was broke
Scattering her words to the wind
Swelling overlong
Seas of blood are a song
And death an afterthought
To those who fight for naught
A throne lying empty
A reign incomplete
Alone for eternity
A pain without cease
Children of the land answer this
Why must you turn to empty bliss
Tell me why break trust
Why turn the past to dust
Seeking solace in the abyss
Tell me why create
A circle none can break
Why must you let go
The life you were bestowed
This I fear I'll never know
Never know...
