Last thing I remember is plotting our escape
I was running with a gang wreaking havoc state to state
Called AVALANCHE, we were some revolutionaries
Using every trick in the book to bring the truth and nearly
Got killed on my last mission up in Midgar
Set off an explosion, ran, but didn't get far
So I'm guessing the reactor blew
Blast knocked me unconscious, and detached the crew
I awakened on a flowerbed up in the slums,
on the floor of a church all covered in grunge
Thankful to be alive, in need of a shower and not a medic,
I get up sore and light headed
It was there that I met her, and her name was Aerith
Body wasn't the greatest, skin wasn't the fairest
Not someone I'd normally be interested in getting with
But something 'bout her aura just told me she was different

So i dusted my self off and said hello,
Apologized for the inconvenience and tried to go
But one thing about Aerith, she was a straight shooter,
Didn't wait if she had something to say to ya,
So immediately pleasantries were canceled
When she asked who would pay for the flowers that I trampled
I laughed, and said that I'd replace em
I just did a job that I'm waiting to get paid from
See, I'm a soldier, fighting for freedom,
Providing services for anyone who need em
So she came with a plan, suggested I protect her,
Cause there's some bad folks out there, trying to get her
And before I could ask why, trooped just passed by
Kicked in the church door, wood and glass fly
Should i help her? My conscience said "you gotta dog",
So I went from a soldier to a bodyguard

So in our travels in the ensuing chapters
Everywhere we went somebody was trying to capture her
So asked her, what was the deal, yo what's the appeal?
As usual she's nothing but real:
She was the last descendant of an ancient race,
who may or may not hold the connection to a sacred place
Called the promised land, so this caused a lot of problems man,
Everybody wanted it so they all devised a plan
And if that wasn't enough, in comes Sephiroth,
The meanest, baddest, biggest boss of em all
She goes to the church and prays for the solution
But Sephiroth appears she shows no fear
And with on sword stroke, Aerith was killed,
I wish i was like her, and said what I feel
I don't know what it was but there was something bout her aura
Cause I haven't felt it since her and never felt it before her
