Dragonsong

A little more than a month to FFXIV: Heavensward. I’m super excited. Today they released the song and video for the expansion, and I’m practically bouncing off the walls.

Warning, it does contain a few spoilers from the end game of the main story arc in ARR.

I think these are lyrics…the italicized are the parts I’m not 100% on. And it’s an Uematsu song!!

DragonSong
Children of the land do you hear
Echoes of truth that once rang clear
Two souls intertwined
One true love they defined
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
Sacrifice
A final plead to her kin
Yet this bond of hope
by treachery was broke
Scattering her words to the wind

Swelling over long
Seas of blood are our song
and death and afterthought
to those who fight for naught
alone
lying empty
afraid
in the field
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…


I’m really excited because obviously the expansion will deal with the Dragons of Ishgard, but with this song and it’s lyrics, I’m hoping for the history of Dragons and Men, and the tragic love story that brought the two to war.
