Eyes On Me
[EMI Japan, February 1999] This is the EP that came out with Final Fantasy 8. As you all know, the Eyes On Me song is one of the theme songs for the Final Fantasy 8 game. Faye was paid a huge sum of US$1 million to sing just this one song. The producers of the songs find Faye's voice very emotional and have the feel that they were looking for. After hearing Faye sing, everyone fell in love with this talented singer. Good to finally hear Faye sing in English. (And the animated video is magnificent, but that's another story)

Translated Lyrics

Eyes on Me

Whenever sang my songs, on the stage, on my own.
Whenever said my words, wishing they would be heard.
I saw you smiling at me, was it real, or just my fantasy?
You'd always be there in the corner, of this tiny little bar.
My last night here for you, same old songs, just once more. My last night here with you? Maybe yes, Maybe no. I kind of liked it your way, how you shyly placed your eyes on me. Oh~ did you ever know, that i had mine on you?
Darling~ so there you are, with that look on your face. As if you're never hurt, as if you're never down. Shall i be the one for you, who pinches you softly but sure, If frown is shown, then i will know that you are no dreamer.
So let me come to you, close as I want to be. Close enough for me, to feel your heart beating fast And stay there as i whisper, how i loved your peaceful eyes on me. Did you ever know, that i had mine on you?
Darling~ so share with me, your love if you have enough, Your tears if you're holding back, of pain if that's what it is. How can i let you know, i'm more than the dress and the voice. Just reach me out then, you will know that you're not dreaming.
