Promised Land

Final Fantasy Pray

The melody is based on a tune from Final Fantasy II, a game which I've never played -- yet the melody and the lyrics stand beautifully on their own. This song utilizes a rather elegant, if somewhat odd metre.

Composer:Nobuo Uematsu, Ririko Yamabuki
Arrangement:Toshiro Mitsutomi
Vocals:Risa Ohki
Lyrics:Katsuhiko Kinoshita

English Lyrics

Now here I stand
Oh, in the morning sunshine,
Dreaming only of the promised land.
Somewhere, they say,
Beyond the great horizon,
Lies a beautiful island.

Everyone says
He longs at heart for Shangri-La,
But that it's a nowhere-land, after all.
How I wonder
Why no one tries to sail out,
Looking for a strange paradise.

In my dreams,
I've seen people there,
Exchanging words of love and care.
In the bright sunbeams,
They're dancing with the birds
And they're singing all day long
Beside the streams.

One day, someday,
You'll surely find me sailing away
For the white beach of the promised land.

Now here we stand
Oh, in the burning sunset,
Talking only of the promised land.
I'm glad to know
Now I am not the only one--
I've got nice friends who share dreams with me.

We are so young;
We've got some magic powers.
We are nourishing like flowers.
Oh, let us wait
Until the day comes when we will all
Sail across the deeper blue sea.

In our dreams,
We've seen people there,
Exchanging words of love and care.
In the bright sunbeams,
They're dancing with the birds
And they're singing all day long
Beside the streams.

One day, someday,
You'll surely find us sailing away
For the white beach of the promised land.
