LyricsEdit

JapaneseEdit

願いは永遠 悟りて
幾年 まだ届かず
荒ぶる炎 騒ぎて
止められぬ鼓動 焦がして
踊るように舞い落ちる 桜雪よ
抗うように 紡ぐ声 駆け上らん
何度も繰り返し 燃え上がりし憂いに
戦い祈りしは 泡沫
見果てぬ宙 十六夜
歴史の風 誘う
神の意志さえ欺いて
手を伸ばした
微睡むような 懐かしき
その姿
儚き魂が 古の記憶が
無常に甦る
許されんと知りながら 身体が求める
誓いの 灯火が ひとひら
奏でる愛言葉
委ねる君の側
眠り続けていたい
いつまでもこの時間が
続くようにと願った
輪廻に導かれ
儚き魂が 古の記憶が
無常に甦る
何度も繰り返し 燃え上がりし憂いに
戦い祈りしは 泡沫

RōmajiEdit

Negai wa towa satorite
Ikutose mada todokazu
Araburu honō sawagite
Tomerarenu kodō kogashite
Odoru you ni maiochiru sakurayuki yo
Aragau you ni tsumugu koe kakenoboran
Nando mo kurikaeshi moeagarishi urei ni
Tatakai inorishi wa utakata
Mihatenu sora izayoi
Rekishi no kaze izanau
Kami no ishi sae azamuite
Te wo nobashita
Madoromu you na natsukashiki
Sono sugata
Hakanaki tamashii ga inishie no kioku ga
Mujō ni yomigaeru
Yurusaren to shirinagara karada ga motomeru
Chikai no tomoshibi ga hitohira
Kanaderu aikotoba
Yudaneru kimi no soba
Nemuritsuzuketeitai
Itsumademo kono toki ga
Tsuzuku you ni to negatta
Rinne ni michibikare
Hakanaki tamashii ga inishie no kioku ga
Mujō ni yomigaeru
Nando mo kurikaeshi moeagarishi urei ni
Tatakai inorishi wa utakata

English translationEdit

A desire for eternal transcendence,
Yet it is years beyond reach.
A disruptive malevolent flame
Whose scorching pulse cannot be stopped.
In the falling cherry blossom snow, a dance is performed
As an inspiring voice weaves defiance.
How many times must this burning sorrow be repeated?
This battle prayer is but a transience.
The full moon in the endless sky
Calls out the winds of history.
Despite the motives of god's will,
I'll extend my hand
For the dozing nostalgia
Towards that figure.
For it is a transient soul, an old memory.
An impermanence reawakened.
Unforgiven and knowing, this body seeks out
The promise for specks of light.
Though played by affectionate words,
I must leave your side
And wander towards my rest.
But this time is eternal
As I wish to continue
Being guided through the cycle of rebirth and death.
For it is a transient soul, an old memory.
An impermanence reawakened.
How many times must this burning sorrow be repeated?
This battle prayer is but a transience.

DevelopmentEdit

"Utakata" was commissioned by director Hajime Tabata, who decided late in the the development of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD that he wanted the game to have an additional, original theme song. Takeharu Ishimoto created five different songs, with "Utakata" being Tabata's final choice. As Tabata wanted the song to have a Japanese style befitting the secret ending, Ishimoto wrote the lyrics in archaic Japanese, though he originally wanted to write the lyrics in English.[1][2] The song was performed by Chris Ito, a singer who was among those who had co-performed "Colorful - Falling in Love" with three other singers. T$UYO$HI and ZAX, former members of the band Pay Money to My Pain, were on base guitar and drum set respectively. The game first appeared in the so-called "Final Trailer", released in February 2015.[1][3]
