Sparks from the fire rise up to the sky
Higher and higher oh I want to fly
Out of the story this time I'll be free
Wake up for a moment from that dream of me

Just a legend cold word on a page
Lift up my eyes and I'm soaring away
On silver wings spread out to the sun
I'm leaving this city for the skies above.

Over the ruins an ancient light
Never lost, never failing
Follow me on my path to the heights
Before the shadows fade into night

Running back but I'm out of time.
I could tell everything
Hear the words that fill my mind
How can I say she was mine?

    General CommentIts pretty much the story of FFX in a few lines

    "Sparks from the fire rise up to the sky"
    Opening FMV sequence of the party around a campfire

    "Out of the story this time I'll be free"
    Tidus is teling "his" story throught the game

    "Wake up for a moment from that dream of me"
    He is a dream.

    "Just a legend cold word on a page"
    Auron the legendary guardian (who is dead so is pretty much just cold [cold as in dead] words)

    "Lift up my eyes and I'm soaring away
    On silver wings spread out to the sun"
    Silver airship?

    "Over the ruins an ancient light"
    in one of the final FMV's orbs of light are seen flying over Zanarkand

    "Never lost, never failing"
    the ruins where not lost?

    "Follow me on my path to the heights"
    Mt. Gagazet

    "Before the shadows fade into night"
    After they defeat Sin (its during night if you look atound the tower of the dead) its Tidus' last night before he "dies"

    "Running back but I'm out of time.
    I could tell everything
    Hear the words that fill my mind
    How can I say she was mine?"

    Tidus runs out of time and dissapears before he can tell yuna how he feels

    thats my conclusive summary of this awesome TBM song :D
