"Eternal Wind" (悠久の風, Yūkyū no Kaze?) is the main theme of Final Fantasy III. It was originally composed by Nobuo Uematsu. A popular theme within the series, "Eternal Wind" was called "quite possibly be the best world map music" in a video game by an online source.[1]

Game appearancesEdit

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

"Eternal Wind" was first released in the original version of the game's soundtrack, of which it was the seventh track. It was subsequently re-recorded for the original soundtrack of the DS version of Final Fantasy III, of which it is the ninth track. It was also included in the theme for the introduction movie of the DS remake, "Memory of the Wind ~Legend of the Eternal Wind~", the first track of the original soundtrack.

LyricsEdit

Japanese Kanji
Japanese Romaji
English
Feel the wind eternal
Sweepin' 'cross the land
Over sea and desert
Stirrin' waves and sand
Lost within the darkness, I am blinded by light
A radiance that breaks endless night
Now a secret beckons, let it show us the way
Together we will find the break of day
Beneath the fiery sky
Where the rain runs dry
Let my song be lifted
By the wind on high

Have a cup of cocktail while this bossa nova-style song creates an adult mood. It is fascinating how songs can change so much by an arrangement.

LyricsEdit

PortugueseEdit
Seu cabelo comprido
Se balança no vento
Seu sorriso lindo
Brilha só pra mim
Ah! Ninguem pode ser feliz
Mais que eu
Ah! Não posso viver
Mais sem você
Ah! Quem criou essa beleza assim?
Pra mim você é a rainha
A deusa do amor!
Seu cabelo comprido
Se balança no vento
Ai, que linda!
English translationEdit
Your long hair,
Flowing in the breeze;
Your beautiful smile,
Shining only for me
Ah! No one can be
Happier than I!
Ah! I couldn't live anymore
Without you!
Ah! Who created such a beautiful thing?
To me, you're a queen
The goddess of love!
Your long hair,
Flowing in the breeze
Oh, how lovely!
