"Eyes On Me" as written by and Nobuo/someya Uematsu....
Whenever sang my songs,
On the stage, on my own,
I never said my words,
Wishing they would be heard,
I saw you smiling at me,
Was it real? Or just my fantasy?
You'd always be there in the corner,
Of this tiny little bar.

My last night here for you,
Same old songs just once more,
My last night here with you?
Mayber yes, maybe no.
I kinda liked it your way,
How you shyly placed your eyes on me,
Did you ever know?
That I had mine on you.

Darling so there you are,
With that look on your face,
As if you're never hurt,
As if you're never down,
Shall I be the one for you?
Who pinches you softly but sure,
If frown is shown then
I will know that you are no dreamer.

So let me come to you,
Close as I wanna be,
Close enough for me,
To feel your heart beating fast,
And stay there as whisper,
How I loved your peaceful eyes on me,
Did you ever know?
That I had mine on you.

Darling so share with me,
Your love if you have enough,
Or tears if you're holding back,
Or pain if that's what it is,
How can I let you know?
I'm more than the dress and the voice,
Just reach me out then,
You will know that you are not dreaming.

    General CommentMan, I remember listening to this song when I was like 10 or 11 playing Final Fantasy VIII. Great song, but not as good as Nobuo's other pieces.

    ...and the nostalgia kicks in =)

    General CommentA7XWakingTheFallen I agree with you! FFVIII OST is just brilliant. I'm always listening to it!
    This songs really pretty, sang by Faye Wong.
    Sometimes it's assumed that it's about Squall and Rinoa but it's Julias song. When she says Laguna helped her to write lyrics (With all the faces he showed her etc) so she can sing! It's about their lost love, when Laguna doesn't return and she's just basically talking about how she feels/felt. That said, you can associate it with Squall and Rinoa it is a love song after all, it's just supposed to be Julia singing.
    : ) One of the best love songs IMO.
