Yoshino Aoki: Prayer

This one was one I found tough. It might be due to how late in the evening it currently is, but for whatever reason it took three listens for me to get this out.

Probably was thinking too much.

Anyway, at first I was trying to get forward some imagery and that didn’t quite work, but neither did expressing the emotional content nor describing the song as it happened. I was trying to blend and… yeah; Fragmentary writing that gets something across, but not in an effective manner.

Yoshino Aoki’s (青木佳乃) “Prayer” (“いのり”) is from the soundtrack for Breath of Fire IV, Breath of Fire IV: Original Soundtrack.

I hope you enjoy.

A large expanse stretching beyond what the eye can see spreads out, and land’s vastness becomes overwhelming. A sadness weighs heavy and is deeply affecting for there are actions that need to be made despite a desire for an alternative, and loss remains inevitable.

Through the expanse stretches a sense of rest and those that stop in time are carried forward as much as they are left behind.

Soft and drawn are the sounds as slowly all builds, and the hope that this will end comes forward. Soft something finds a lonesomeness in the distance. It disappears before another sound rises up, only to also disappear, and lingering weight remains as the song ends.
