This cover was inspired by Chuggaaconroy's commentary on The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX. I was so moved by the story that I decided to do an iteration of the Song of Awakening, also known as the Ballad of the Wind Fish.

In this iteration, I did my best to replicate the Eight Instruments of the Sirens with the sounds I had. Also, this song is written from the point of view of the Wind Fish. Because of the melody of the original song, which tends to stress weaker beats, French suits this song rather than English. I did not want to wind up with an acCENT Upon the wrong sylLABble...



Je sommeille, je sommeille dans cet espace
Je sommeille, je sommeille sans arrêt
Le temps arrive de fermer ce livre de rêves
Et en ouvrir un autre

Et au fond de ce rêve se trouve un monde
Une ile, isolée par le temps
Quand tu t'es éveillé, le pendule s'est arrêté
Te renfermer dans le rêve...

Je sommeille, je sommeille dans cet espace
Et pourtant, je sommeille en espoir
De voir ta face, d'entendre ces melodies
Qui ravissent le cœur avec leur douceur !

Et je prie constamment dans ce rêve,
À travers une voix que tu aimes :
Vas-tu abandonner tous ceux qui t'ont gardé dans leurs cœurs
Pour exaucer mes prières ?

Viens, ô Heros du Temps et libère-moi...!!

Je suis enfin liberée
Il n'y a qu'à recommencer
Sur la voie vers ceux que tu aimes vraiment—
Ils t'attendent,
Ils t'attendent,
Ils t'attendent...



I sleep, I sleep within this space
I sleep, I sleep without ceasing
The time has come to close this book of dreams
And to open another

And deep within this dream is a world
An island, isolated by time
When you awoke, the pendulum stopped
Enclosing you in the dream...

I sleep, I sleep within this space
And yet, I sleep in hope
Of seeing your face, of hearing these melodies
That gladden the heart with their sweetness!

And I constantly pray in this dream,
Through a voice that you love:
Will you give up all those who held you in their hearts
To satisfy my prayers?

Come, O Hero of Time and free me...!!

I am finally free
All that's left is to start again
On the path to those whom you truly love
They're waiting for you,
They're waiting for you,
They're waiting for you...

Everything was sequenced by yours truly except for the bodhrán and vocals, which I recorded live.
Lyrics written by yours truly.

Originally composed by Kazumi Totaka for The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening and Link's Awakening DX.
