An orchestraited version of the Opera featuring Maria and Draco from Final Fantasy VI
I went to the concert in Grand Rapids, and I can honestly say it was one of the greatest experiences I've ever had. Sadly, To Zanarkand, Dear Friends, Ronfaure, and Terra's' Theme didn't make it onto the CD. We can only hope they will be included in a second CD or some such.
Fun Trivia: During the concert, we got to cast votes between five battle songs we'd want added to Distant Worlds. Dancing Mad won second place. So close, yet so far away.
Though I call you from afar,
Will this message reach your heart?
Oh, how I long to be with you!
Oh, my hero!
Shall we still be made to part?
Though promises of perennial love
Yet sing here in my heart
I'm the darkness you're the starlight
Shining brightly from afar
Through hours of despair, I offer this prayer
To you my evening star
Must my final vows exchanged
be with him and not with you
Were you only here to quiet
Oh, speak! Guide me anew!
Draco! I knew you would return to me, my love!
Insolent rogue! Knave of the Western Horde!
Would you address my Queen-to-be, Maria?
Never shall you have Maria's Hand!
I would die before that day comes!
Then we duel!
I yield... this day is yours, Draco.
Curse you should you let Maria go!
Peace, then! For you have my word:
With me she'll know nothing of need!
I love you so!
Draco and Ralse:
Return to me!
I am thankful, my beloved
For your tenderness and grace
I see in your eyes, so gentle and wise
All doubts and fears erased
Though the hours take no notice
Of what fate might have in store
Maria and Draco:
Our love, come what may
Will never age a day
I'll wait forevermore...
I'll wait forevermore!
