New Official Chrono Arrange Album Adds Lyrics to Classic Wordless Songs

In more "hey video game music can be fairly non-shitty sometimes" news, outstanding composer Yasunori Mitsuda and former outstanding game maker Square Enix have released a new arrangement of music from the Chrono series. A lot of the songs have lyrics now. Since this is an official Square Enix Music release, I guess that means you can take the words as real. Official. Canon or something.

Because I have nothing better to do, like, at all, I listened and wrote down the words to "On the Other Side," (which is Marle's Theme, "Far Off Promise" originally) which begins at 33:22 of the embedded video above.

What you all mean to me...
It's so hard for me to put in words.
When you fly away,
Please recall what I say.
I believe in you
and all you'll do.
Don't say "goodbye,"
Say "We'll meet on the other side."

I knew this day would come.
I knew that our time here was so short.
But all that you taught me
all you believed I could be,
that will stay inside.
So please don't say "goodbye,"
Say, "We'll meet on the other side."
(Repeat)

I know, if you can read this, you can probably understand the singer just fine yourself. I just think lyrics look nice when they're written out, so I do that from time to time.

How you liking that new arrangement?
