"Eyes On Me" as written by and Nobuo/someya Uematsu....
Whenever I sang my songs,
On the stage,
On my own.
Whenever I 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 your never hurt.
As if your 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 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,
your tears if your 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.

Darling so there you are!
With that look on your face.
As if your never hurt.
As if your 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 CommentI cry every time I hear this song. I loved it since I played FF8 for the first time. This song is about a girl being in love, and hoping that he loves her back, but not sure. I'm surprised no one has commented on this, yet.

    General CommentI've always seen it spelled Faye Wong, but regardless of her name - the song is amazing! I heard it on Final Fantasy 8 once and looked it up on (it must have been Napster back then!). It's beautiful. The Chinese (or is it Japanese - I don't know) version is great too!

    General CommentYeah, I guess its spelled like Faye Wong too. And I think (not sure now) she's a hk-artist ? Singing cantonese in that other version?? Talking 'bout hk-artists I think Gigi Leung's a lil better than Wong.

    General Commentshe is chinese
    japanese usually have longer names, like Nobuo Uematsu. Although now it seems obvious to me, this song is about Laguna Loire...the tiny little bar and how he was always watching her and smiling.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. A tale of lost love JUST GREAT!

    Her real name is Wong Fei, and she is chinese. Chinese surnames come before the first. so he name is Fei and her surname is Wong. Sounds like Faye Wong see?.

    A lot of chinese celebs have english names like this. Zhang Ziyi, is in fact Ziyi Zhang. Hope this is cleared up.

    P.S most of my friends are chinese and fans of Wong Fei. So my sources are reliable.
