The Final Fantasy V: Dear Friends album features a vocal arrangement of "My Home, Sweet Home," named "Harukanaru Kokyou." It is sung in a mix of English and Saami, an indigenous language spoken in the northern parts of Scandinavia.


English and Saami (Dear Friends)Edit
So far away from my home, sweet home
Day by day, from land to land I roam.
Though told by the wind, which way to go.
Oh how I long for my home, sweet home.
Boađe ruoktot alot go
don dovtat tuski
Boađe ruoktot alot go
don dovtat váivu
du ruoktu vuordá
du alot
du ruoktu vuordá
du alot
Fragrant blossoms, blooming far away
Do my folks see them as I did long ago?
Are they still joyful, are they young at heart?
Will I see them again as I did that day...
(sang simultaneously with 2nd English stanza)
Bearaš, ushbat, ruoktu
dat eai goassige
vajaldahtc du
How far I've come from my childhood home...
There will come a time when my troubles are gone
And when I shall not be all alone.
Till then, I dream of my home, sweet home.
(sang simultaneously with 3rd English stanza)
Meahcci, čácit, albmi
dat buot vurdet du
dat buot vurdet du
English translationEdit

Final Fantasy: Love Will GrowEdit

What do you think is being sung by this mysterious song? Think carefully, looking at the words while listening... You will probably be able to understand the beautiful poem. The [duet] by the two is amazing.
—Liner notes to "Harukanaru Kokyou" on Final Fantasy: Love Will Grow album

Final Fantasy: Love Will Grow features a vocal arrangement of "My Home, Sweet Home," named "Harukanaru Kokyou" as well. This version is technically written in Japanese, although it is sung as if the Romaji were spelled inversely (i. e. from right to left). The song is mostly fragments of sentences, of which only a rough English translation can be rendered.


Idolem urodo iatu a wi rot,
Ukufu kush onuoy nehawuoch.
Etia di ukoik ura nakurah,
Enadu yoimi nnesar urugem.
Eteako ich atak--
Ureatu tso oodah.
Amia wibo koro yonneie!
English translationEdit
The birds sing a dancing melody,
Butterflies are a strange blessing.
Embrace distant memories
And entrust yourself to a circling spiral.
Change form--
Tell [others] of this wave motion--
Eternal joy is now!

迷い込んだ 森の 奥で
密かな 鈴の音を 聞いた
導かれるまま 進んだ
たどり着いた 夜の宴
赤い衣装に 身を包み
緩やかに 踊る 少女と
燃えたぎる 炎の 色に
心 奪われて たたずむ
指先は 風を 掴んで
美しい 円を 描いて
揺れる 髪飾り かすかに
音を たてながら 煌めく
記憶を 揺さぶる 歌声
命の 喜びを 歌う
生まれる前に 聞いていた
まどろみ 誘う 子守唄
目覚めた 朝もやの 森に
かすかに 聞こえる 歌声
木々の ざわめきと 重なり
透明な 風に 変わった
泡沫の 夢の続きに
いつか また 出逢えるように
懐かしく 不思議な 歌を
空に 向かって 口ずさむ
English translationEdit
Within a forest where I'd gotten lost
I heard the sound of a secret bell
Led forth, I proceeded
And arrived at an evening banquet
A young girl danced lazily
Enveloped in a red garment
The color of the seething flames
Captivated, I stood a moment
Her fingertip grasped the wind
And outlined a beautiful circle
The decorations in her hair swayed, sparkled
And made the slightest sound
Her song rocked my memories
Singing of the joys of life
A lullaby, inviting slumber
I'd heard it before I was born
I awoke in the morning haze of the woods
And heard her voice singing faintly
Layered atop the murmur of the trees
It turned into a transparent wind
So I may one day meet again
The continuation of my ephemeral dream
I look up into the sky and hum
That strange, nostalgic songs
Japanese rōmajiEdit
Mayoikonda mori no oku de
Hisoka na suzu no oto o kiita
Michibikareru mama susunda
Tadoritsuita yoru no utage
Akai ishou ni mi o tsutsumi
Yuruyaka ni odoru shoujo to
Moetagiru honoo no iro ni
Kokoro ubawarete tatazumu
Yubisaki wa kaze o tsukande
Utsukushii en o egaite
Yureru kamikazari kasuka ni
Oto o tatenagara kirameku
Kioku o yusaburu utagoe
Inochi no yorokobi o utau
Umareru mae ni kiite ita
Madoromi sasou komoriuta
Mezameta asamoya no mori ni
Kasuka ni kikoeru utagoe
Kigi no zawameki to kasanari
Toumei na kaze ni kawatta
utakata no yume no tsuzuki ni
Itsuka mata deaeru you ni
Natsukashiku fushigi na uta o
Sora ni mukatte kuchizusamu
