Alone for a while I've been searching through the dark,
For traces of the love you left inside my lonely heart,
To weave by picking up the pieces that remain,
Melodies of life - love's lost refrain.

Our paths they did cross, though I cannot say just why.
We met, we laughed, we held on fast, and then we said goodbye.
And who'll hear the echoes of stories never told ?
Let them ring out loud till they unfold.

In my dearest memories, I see you reaching out to me.
Though you're gone, I still believe that you can call out my name.

A voice from the past, joining yours and mine.
Adding up the layers of harmony.
And so it goes, on and on.
Melodies of life,
To the sky beyond the flying birds - forever and beyond.

So far and away, see the birds as it flies by.
Gliding through the shadows of the clouds up in the sky.
I've laid my memories and dreams upon those wings.
Leave them now and see what tomorrow brings.

In your dearest memories, do you remember loving me ?
Was it fate that brought us close and now leave me behind ?

A voice from the past, joining yours and mine.
Adding up the layers of harmony.
And so it goes, on and on.
Melodies of life,
To the sky beyond the flying bird - forever and on.

If I should leave this lonely world behind,
Your voice will still remember our melody.
Now I know we'll carry on.
Melodies of life,
Come circle round and grow deep in our hearts, as long as we remember.

    This song conveys a sense of everlasting love, no matter the hardships, or the sacrifices. Love this strong cannot be expressed merely in words, therefore the melodies are Garnet's prayer that Zidane will one day soon come back to her, and that her heart continues to call out to him in hopes of one day seeing him again. Later, at the end of the game, Zidane says that he was able to come back because ha sang her song, meaning that this song was truly a song of the heart. This song composes years of love, life and happiness in its lyrics and notes, creating a symphony of emotion stronger than distance. And the voice from the past is obviously Garnet's memories creating their own overtones to add to the song, calling so strongly that when Zidane echoed the song, it allowed him to find his way back to his true love. That is what this song means, that love is the strongest bond anyone can share with another, and that it is stronger than anything else in the world. Long live Final Fantasy!

    This song is the story of a love that can transcend time and space. The memories of love create the Melodies that last forever, because love is eternal. From the speaker's point of view, as long as they still have the memories of that love, it will live on in their hearts, no matter what distance separates them. Music is the true language of Creation, so of course the memories of love would create a music so strong that the voices of the past will sing in response to the truest love that they both share. Long live Final Fantasy.
