XV Somnus
Trouble with the audio sample?
The title of this song, played during the trailer for FF Versus XIII, means 'sleep,' but there is nothing restful about the forceful vocals singing of coming war.
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy description

"Somnus" is the main theme for Final Fantasy XV. The song first appeared in the first trailer for the game. It was included on the album Drammatica by Yoko Shimomura, the composer for the Kingdom Hearts series and Legend of Mana.

The song opens with a piano playing a rather sad melody, followed by a vocal part sung by Aundréa L. Hopkins[1] in Latin, much like other famous songs from the Final Fantasy series.

LyricsEdit

Latin LyricsEdit

Deus dormit
Et liberi ignem faciunt
Numquam extint
Ne expergisci possit.
Omnia dividit
Tragedia aram
Amandum quae
Et nocte perpetua
E hem desperationem
Pavor omnivere potest
Manes tempus expergiscendi.

English Translation[2]Edit

God sleeps
And children light a flame:
He never dies,
Nor He can be awoken.
(This) tragedy destroys,
In front of them,
Every beloved thing.
(look!) after despair
And the everlasting night
He can see the dawn
There is (still) time to awake.

Game appearancesEdit

Theatrhythm Final FantasyEdit

Somnus is a DLC Field Music Sequence song for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, and the background featured is of a large city, similar to the one seen in several trailers for the game. It is the only song out of the 52 DLC tracks that doesn't appear for the iOS version, and the only song not to return in the sequel, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call.

EtymologyEdit

"Somnus" is the Latin word for "sleep", and the personification of sleep (also called "Hypnos"), a possible reference to the game logo, which is an image of a sleeping woman.
