                            ABOUT THE MUSIC IN THE TWIN SNAKES
                                                                         ________

        ==========================================================================
    
    
        As you should know, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes is a remake of the
        original Metal Gear Solid (1998, Playstation), and as such, the songs are
        very similar. And that's something really good, because the first game had
        such a nice soundtrack.
    
        Basically it brings eletronic beats that can tell the tension of the
        current status of the game, taking the gamer to feel the urgency, peace,
        or whatever feeling it has to. The cutscenes have more orchestrated songs,
        more like epic. Overall the sound work in this game is very nice.

        ==== LYRICS (Original Lyrics in Gaelic) ====
    
        An cuimhin leat an gra
        Cra croi an ghra
        Nil anois ach ceol na h-oiche
        Taim siorai i ngra
        Leannain le smal
        Leannain le smal
    
        Lig leis agus beidh leat
        Lig leis agus beidh gra
    
        Cuimhne leat an t-am
        Nuair a bhi tu sasta
    
        An cuimhne leat an t-am
        Nuair a bhi tu ag gaire
        Ta an saol iontach
        ma chreideann tu ann
    
        Tug aghaidh ar an saoi
        is sonas siorai inar measc
        Ceard a tharla do na
        laethanta sin
        Ceard a tharla do na
        h-oicheanta sin
    
        An cuimhin leat an t-am
        Nuair a bhi tu faoi bhron
        An cuimhin leat an t-am
        Go siorai sileadh na ndeaor
    
        An ormsa na orainne a bhi
        an locht
        Ag mothu cailite s'ar fan
        Cen fath an t-achrann is
        sileadh na ndeor
        Ta ailleacht sa saol
        Ma chuardaionn tu e
        Ta gliondar sa saol
        Cuardaimis e
    
    
    
        ==== LYRICS (Translated to English) ====
    
        Do you remember the time when little things made you happy
        Do you remember the time when simple things made you smile
        Life can be wonderful if you let it be
        Life can be simple if you try
    
        What happened to those days?
        What happened to those nights?
        Do you remember the time when little things made you so sad
        Do you remember the time when simple things made you cry
    
    
        Is it just me, or is it just us
        Feeling lost in this world?
        Why do we have to hurt each other?
        Why do we have to shed tears?
        Life can be beautiful if you try
        Life can be joyful if we try
        Tell me I am not alone
        Tell me we are not alone in this world fighting against the wind
        Do you remember the time when simple things made you happy
        Do you remember the time when simple things made you laugh
    
        You know life can be simple
        You know life is simple
        Because the best thing in life is yet to come
        Because the best is yet to come
