Whenever sang my songs
On the stage, on my own
Whenever 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?
Maybe yes, maybe no
I kind of 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 want to be
Close enough for me
To feel your heart beating fast
And stay there as I whisper
How I love 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
Your 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're not dreaming

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

    General CommentHah, I'm the one who comments on the FF songs! ^^ yay! Anyways...This song, if you think about it in just terms off FFVIII, it describes the romance between the main characters, Rinoa and Squall. If you think about, until RInoa came along, Squall was pretty much what you might call a 'lost soul' ...He was shy, and kind of shallow..(Always gotta have a loner, eh?) ..But Rinoa brought out the best in him, and helped him to find the love which he needed, even if he was too 'tough' to admit it..Eyes On Me is quite a lovely song, and doesn't just have to pertain to FFVIII only... Like a lot of Final Fantasy songs (Nobuo Uematsu is a genius, btw...hehe) this revolves around the theme of love ^_^

    (And to 'binkie' ...You can get this song, and you can listen to it whenever you want to..Just download a music sharing program, like Morpheus (etc, etc) and there you go! You can also search some Final Fantasy Fansites (Three 'F's! lol..) and they usually have some Mp3's you can download ;D Enjoy..)

    General CommentThis song isn't *that* good. I would put it my "bad" song catergory. It might have been better if they had a better singer for it. Nothing against Faye Wong, but this isn't her best work.

    General CommentI adore this song for Faye Wong's voice had a surreal and magicial effect on it. It can literally send you to the dreamscape of love and enchantment. :) Oh, and FFVIII is a great game! ;)

    General CommentJust to clarify, this song is about Julia and Laguna from the game, and not Squall and Rinoa. It's meant to be Julia singing it (see Winhill, disk 2 with Kiros), and from the plot, we can assume it's him she means!... that said, it applies to Squall/Rinoa too.

    Beautiful song, used to play it to death

    General CommentSirius1 is definitely right.

    "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"

    It is meant to be sung by Julia.

    Great song, reminds me of my crush

    General Commentsirius1 is right, its about laguna, on disc one when julia tells him she wants to sing but cant write the lyrics, she says the faces he showed her inspired her to write 'eyes on me'. and it does obviously apply to squall and rinoa too, also seeing as laguna is squalls dad, its cute. this is my favourite final fantasy and my favourite game of all time cuz' when you play it, it just doesnt feel like your average game its so real. faye wongs voice is so wonderful in this song, especially the version in the end movie clip, ah whenever i see the end movie clip or the space scene i just have to cry, among other parts :). the first comment is probably the best one on here too, you can feel angry or hurt. lonely and this song just makes you forget about it! beautiful song xx

    General Commentthe question is "what does this song mean to me"?

    i think this song is about laguna, but i think it also calls powerfully to anyone who has ever looked at someone and not had the courage to ask them out.

    odd isn't it, rammstein fan, love metallica, but this song speaks the most deeply to me.
