"Sunrise" (千年の暁 ~朱雀征魂戦~, Sennen no Akatoki ~Suzaku Seikonsen~?, lit. Millennium Sunrise ~Vermilion Bird Spirit Battle~) is a theme song from Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, the boss theme of Suzaku. It was composed by Masayoshi Soken and the lyrics were written by Natsuko Ishikawa, Tomohiro Kawasaki, and Michael-Christopher Koji Fox.

The Japanese portion of the song is being sung by Suzaku's Japanese voice actress Yoshino Nanjo and is told from the character's point of view. While the first half is about her memories with Tenzen, the second is about her emotions after losing him.

Tenzen's reply to Suzaku are sung in English by Soken and he explains that he sacrificed himself for the people, and how sorry he is that his sacrifice saddened her, but assures her "we will meet again."[1][2]

It is the 12th track in Shadowbringers: Final Fantasy XIV Original Soundtrack.

手繰り寄するは かの情景
清らに優し 恋ひ恋ふ吾が君よ
Blazing Scarlet, fire within
 "心に炎を宿し朱の鳥よ"
Honor binds me unto errant kin
 "我らの力は人々を救う為に在るのだ"
Yea, if here I find my end
 "たとえ此の道の先に 死が待ち受けていたとしても"
Stay your tears, for we shall meet again
 "涙を流すことはない 彼方にて君を待っている"
陽炎の如く消えた 恋ひ恋ふ吾が君
長き別れが来たり 幾度願へども
千年の暁 臥い乞う夜 過ぎて
三世を羽ばたけど ゆくえなく
一念に流すは 濃い紅の涙よ
願わくば吾が君 生き出で給へ
心念に終得て 恋ひ恋ふ身
朽ちたら 君待つ彼方へと

taguri yosuru wa kano joukei
kiyora ni yasashi koi kou agakimi yo
Blazing Scarlet, fire within
Honor binds me unto errant kin
Yea, if here I find my end
Stay your tears, for we shall meet again
kagerou no kotoku kieta koi kou agakimi
nagaki wakare ga kitari ikudo negaedomo
senen no akatoki koi kouya sugite
sanze wo habata kedo yukuenaku
ichinen ni nagasu wa koi kou no namida yo
negawakuba agakimi ikiide tamae
shinen ni tsuite koi koumi
kuchitara kimimatsu kanata heto

Official English translation[]

Drawn to a heart and a soul, saved by a hero true
Stranger to kindness until freed by love eternal, you and I
Blazing Scarlet, fire within
Honor binds me unto errant kin
Yea, if here I find my end
Stay your tears, for we shall meet again
As the light of the setting sun fades, bid farewell to me beloved
In these fleeting moments hold my hand, as I whisper a silent prayer
Should dawn never break on this thousand thousand year night, I promise
Should I take to wing and seek you in every distant sky...
One last breath and I fracture, shatter—crimson sorrow, endless, boundless
One more life for us, one more chance—for this I pray, I beg, I plead
Dreams of you and me in my heart I hold forevermore, as I falter
Wait for me, wait for me my love...
