ICO - You Were There...

Today is my birthday and I'd like to share with you a 
little bit of beauty. I'm in love with this song and the 
innocence of this boy's voice. The song is from the beloved
 video game classic "ICO."An enchanting tale about a cursed little boy with horns and his courage in the face of darkness, his love for a young fairy maiden, and the ultimate sacrifice she must make to protect him This is one of the pieces that I always listen
to whenever I'm working on my art or writing my stories.
I hope you enjoy.





The island bathes in the sun's bright rays
Distant hills wear a shroud of grey
A lonely breeze whispers in the trees
Sole witness to history

Fleeting memories rise
From the shadows of my mind
Sing "nonomori" - endless corridors
Say "nonomori" - hopeless warriors
You were there
You were there

Am I forever dreaming
How to define the way I'm feeling

You were there
Countless visions they haunt me in my sleep
You were there
Though forgotten all promises we keep

Slaves to our destiny
I recall a melody
Sing "nonomori" - seasons lit with gold
Say "nonomori" - legends yet untold
You were there
You were there

Happiness follows sorrow
Only believing in tomorrow

You were there
Countless visions they haunt me in my sleep
You were there
Though forgotten all promises we keep

The island bathes in the sun's bright rays
Distant hills wear a shroud of grey
A lonely breeze whispers in the trees
Sole key to this mystery
