Lost Odyssey Theme Song - "What You Are" by Sheena Easton

I've uploaded the theme song for Lost Odyssey in YouTube. Check out the video below:



At first, I wasn't so into the song but when I heard it in full it grows on you. The song is actually quite beautiful. It was sung by Sheena Easton. With the lyrics from Hironobu Sakaguchi and the composition by Nobuo Uematsu. Very moving song, specially once you understand the lyrics.

Below are the lyrics for the song

"What You Are"
by Sheena Easton

When you touch me
It feels just like a dream
With the warmth that's in your eyes
When you look at me

I hear your voice beside me
It whispers to me
I can't hide how it makes me feel
The shyness you see

I may never
Understand how deep it goes
But I know how I feel
What I hold deep in my heart

There's just no way to stop this
It's hopeless but true
I feel this love
More than anything
So what more can I do

You know I thought
I would be much stronger than I am
But then I feel
the boldness that's inside my heart
Just melt away

How I feel for you
And what I want to say
Keeps getting lost inside

Chorus:

I'd like to make what you are
Into someone irreplaceable
who will always be by my side


I'd like to make what you are
Into something so wonderous
In this life of mine
That I would love for all time


When you kiss me
I think I'm in a dream
With the warmth that's in your gaze
When you look at me

Your eyes filled with emotion
Sparkling with tears
I feel this love
This is everything
What more can I do

You know I thought
I would be more fragile than I am
But then my hands grow strong
With the truth that no one hold so dear

With this gentle touch
I hope I can express
Just how I feel for you

Chorus:

I'd like to make what you are
Into someone irreplaceable
Who will always be by my side


I'd like to make what you are
Into something so wonderous
In this life of mine
That I would love for all time

I'd like to make what you are
Into something I can always feel
Near to me when I reach out my hand

I'd like to make what you are
Into something so wonderous
In this life of mine
That I would love for all time

That I would love for all time

  1. From reading through the blog, the more and more I'm becoming interested in LO. I'm acutally thinking of tracking down a copy myself.

    Too be honest, I didn't really have high hopes for that game. Sure Sakaguchi-san developed some of the Final Fantasy games, but truthfully, I don't get all that giddy for the FF series anymore, like some other people. I think that the recent FF games have been too meodramatic for my tastes and have emphasized graphics and CG cutscenes over gameplay and a good story. I'm acutally quite relieved to know that he's sticking with the classic gameplay style ala FF5 and 6 (which in my opinion are the best FF games of all time).

    Cheers to you guys and keep those LO impressions coming. :)

  2. It's more like FF6. There's an area in Disc 4 which I don't really want to spoil but is so FF6-esque in terms of how you're supposed to explore the level....

  3. I'm actually staying away from spoilers too since me and my wife are playing this though on separate occasions. She's on Disc 4 already and it's like 12:55AM in the morning. She's trying to kill this really tough boss, she already died twice! But she doesn't want to sleep yet because she's hell bent on killing the boss. As I said I'm also playing the game but I'm delayed all the way back to disc 1. I don't know the story by Disc 4 since I want to see it for myself but it's really nice to see the location where she is right now....this game is one epic adventure!!!
