XV

'Stand by Me' is one of the greatest songs probably of all time so I was really glad that the game had chosen this song to do. We really wanted to make it our own, bringing it into the world of Florence + The Machine and the world of Final Fantasy XV.

Florence and the Machine on "Stand by Me"

"Stand By Me" is the theme song of Final Fantasy XV. It was performed by the English indie rock band Florence and the Machine. The song was first made famous in 1961 by American soul and R&B singer Ben E. King.

"Stand By Me" features the "Prelude" in its background instrumentation. The song expresses the gratitude Noctis Lucis Caelum feels towards his friends and cannot find the words to express.[2]

"Stand By Me" was released on the Songs from Final Fantasy XV EP on August 12, 2016.

Part of the "Stand By Me" plays in the opening when the party is pushing the broken down Regalia to a service station. The full song plays during the ending credits. "Stand By Me" does not play in Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition.

Lyrics Edit

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No I won't be afraid
Oh I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
So darling, darling stand by me
Oh stand by me
Oh stand now
Stand by me
Stand by me
If the sky that we look upon should tumble and fall
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry
No I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
And darling, darling stand by me
Oh stand by me
Oh stand now
Stand by me
Stand by me
And darling, darling stand by me
Oh stand by me
Oh stand
Stand by me
Stand by me
Whenever you're in trouble
Won't you stand by me
Oh stand by me
Oh stand now
Stand by me
Oh darling, darling stand by me
Oh stand by me
Oh stand now
Stand by me
Whenever you're in trouble
Won't you stand by me
Oh stand by me
Oh stand now
Stand by me
Stand by me

TriviaEdit

  • Noctis makes a possible reference to the song when he asks the Glaives to stand by him in a scene added to the PC and Royal Edition versions of the game.
