"The Skies Above" as written by and Nobuo Uematsu....
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 CommentThe piano in the beginning is what brought me to this song at first.

    The first time I listened I enjoyed that portion and when I heard that fading I figured I would just let the song fade and close it but than the guitar kicked in which floored me. And than the awesome Opera vocals just bring the piece to fruition. Excellence.
