The Opera, including Aria di Mezzo
Carattere (from FF3)
Though I call you from afar,
Will this message reach your heart?
Oh, how I long to be with you...
Oh my hero, my beloved,
Shall we still be made to part?
Your promises of perennial love
Yet sing here in my heart...
I'm the darkness, you're the starlight
Shining brightly from afar
Through hours of despair, I offer this prayer
To you, my evening star...
Must my final vows exchanged
Be with him and not with you?
Were you only here to quiet my fear!
Oh, speak--guide me anew
I knew you would return to me, my love!
Knave of the Western Hold!
Would you address my queen-to-be Maria?
Never shall you have Maria's hand!
I would die before that day comes!
Then we duel!
I yield--this day is yours, Draco...
Curse you, should you let Maria go
Peace, then, for you have my word
With me, she'll know nothing of this
I love you so...
Draco and Ralse:
Return to me!
I am thankful, my beloved
For your tenderness and grace
I see in your eyes, so gentle and wise
All doubts and fears erased
Though the hours take no notice
Of what fate might have in store
Our love, come what may
Will never age a day
I'll wait forevermore...
I'll wait forevermore!
