"What Angel Wakes Me" - Masayoshi Soken

"What Angel Wakes Me" - Masayoshi Soken

This is the 4th song from Final Fantasy XIV that I have written. The other 3 can be viewed here.

At the start of Final Fantasy XIV’s 3rd expansion, ShadowBringers, it brought a truck load of new content including dungeons and trials.

One of the first trials that you encounter is at Level 73, Titania. Titania is not a name, but rather the title of “The King of Pixies” – The pixies are small fairies who fly around and play with their friends and enemies.

Did I say play? I mean, play tricks on them because they are evil little things!

Slight spoilers ahead!

Not much is know about the original name of Titania in the story, but Feo Ul who is known to the Crystal Exarch wants to help them reclaim the land of Il Mheg back to the pixies. The only way to do this to defeat Titania.

At the end of the storyline, Feo Ul does become the new Titania and a newborn pixie An Lad is born and has vague memories about the old Titania.

Spoilers end here!

While you and 7 other Warriors of Light Darkness are combatting against Titania inside Lyhe Ghiah, the song “What Angel Wakes Me” is played in the background.

The song is composed by Final Fantasy XIV’s very own composer Masayoshi Soken who has composed most of the OST for the entire game.

Michael-Christopher Koji Fox, the co-lead World & Lore Developer and Translator Director for Final Fantasy XIV wrote the lyrics and the song was sang by Paula Kay Gerhold who works as a English Translator for Square-Enix (The Publisher of Final Fantasy XIV)

Lyrics:

Dancing on the wind up and down again
Round and round the bend
Fa la la la la la
From a flow’ry bed to the clouds ascend
Tumble down again
Fa la la la la la
Yet with each descent do we rise again
To our hearts’ content
Fa la la la la la
Fly away my friend for a day and then
We’ll begin again
Fa la la la la la

Till down turn the skies
Wonted quiet, wanton silence
For long do we lie
Wond’ring when we’ll be

Dancing on the wind up and down again
Round and round the bend
Fa la la la la la
From a flow’ry bed to the clouds ascend
Tumble down again
Fa la la la la la

Yet with each descent do we rise again
To our hearts’ content
Fa la la la la la
Fly away my friend for a day and then
We’ll begin again
Fa la la la la la

Still down turn the skies
Gentle song gently wand’ring
Along in the night
Joyous cries ring free

La la la la la
Lying lost in thought
Do you love me not?
Follow these
Petals cast aloft
La la la la la
Will you, when I’m gone, remember me?

Ring a ling a ling
Lovers in the spring
How the garden sings
Ever green
Spirits lush, we bring
Ring a ling a ling
Braving anything
Together, we

La la la la la
Learn to play our part
Navigate the dark
Up we reach
Catch a falling star
La la la la la
Lock it in our hearts eternally

Ring a ling a ling
Flying without wings
Kites without a string
Loop and leap
To these crowns we cling
Ring a ling a ling
For we’ll all be kings tomorrow

Autumn’s whisper soaring high
Lulla lulla lullaby
Baby’s breath and butterflies
Sing in our sweet lullaby
Summer child with heavy eyes
Lulla lulla lullaby
Come our lonely angel nigh
Sing in our sweet lullaby

Time wilts and fades
Luster lost in the rain
Bows to the blade
Till the spring calls again
