Alone for a while I've been searching through the dark,
For traces of the love you left inside my lonely heart.
To weave by picking up the pieces that remain,
Melodies of lief - love's lost refrain.

Our paths they did cross, though I cann't say just why.
We met, we laughed, we held on fast, and then we said goodbye.
And who'll hear the echoes of stories never told?
Let them ring out loud till they unfold.

In my dearest memories, I see you reaching out to me.
Though you're gone, I still believe that you can call out my name.

A voice from the past, joining yours and mine.
Adding up the layers of harmony.
And so it goes, on and on.
Melodies of Life,
To the sky beyond the flying birds - forever and beyond.

So far and away, see the bird as it flies by.
Gliding through the shadows of the clouds up in the sky.
I've laid my memories and dreams upon those wings.
Leave them now and see what tomorrow brings.

In your dearest memories, do you remember loving me?
Was it fate that brought us closer and now leaves me behind?

A voice from the past, joining yours and mine.
Adding up the layers of harmony.
And so it goes, on and on.
Melodies of life,
To the sky beyond the flying bird - forever and on.

If I should leave this lonely world behind,
Your voice will still remember our melody.
Now I know we'll carry on.
Melodies of Life,
Come circle round and grow deep in our hearts, as long as we remember.

    My InterpretationMelody of Life is a story.
    A story of two people
    who met, became friends
    fell in love, then said goodbye.

    Fate brought them together
    and fate brought them apart.
    But always and forever
    Their memories remain.

    The melody which
    their voices remember,
    is the song of their love;
    The melodies of life.

    Through the song
    that they sing,
    their love will go on,
    Forever and beyond.

    As long as they remember

    General CommentHeh, wow, I didn't expect SongMeanings to have a Final Fantasy lyric section :D heh..Anyway.. Melodies Of Life is a beautiful song, and if you've ever played FFIX you'd know that Garnet is often found humming along to this in the game in various scences...If you'ved played through the game, you could probably understand who this song was revolving around (it's obvious..), but even if you haven't, you can most likely understand that this song is about love...In the game Garnet (whom was heir to the throne; she was a princess, in Alexandria, which is a town) with a bizarre twist of fate, gets mixed up with a group of theater performers, known as "Tantalus" .. umm..I'll stop with the 'narration' thing I've got going here...heh ^^;; .. The lyrics in the song just describe the friendship (which does turn to love) between Princess Garnet and Zidane (a member of the Tantalus group) and how they will always remember what happened, and will always remember eachother..And even if they do not meet again, they will always have the memories within their hearts, and their love will carry on forever. ^_~ Well, that's how I see it anyway...
