real Emotion


What can I do for you

What can I do for you
What can I do for you
What can I do for you
I can hear you

What can I do for you
What can I do for you
What can I do for you

Far beyond the hazy borders of my heart
I can see a place
It's something like this
Every now and then I don't know what to do
Still I know that I can never go back

All the things I've seen
In those hazy dreams
Can't compare to what I'm seeing now
Everything's so different
That it brings me to my knees

And though, I know, the world of real Emotion
Has surrounded me
I won't give into it
Now, I know,
that forward Is the only way my heart
Can go
I hear your voice calling out to me
You'll never be alone

What can I do for you
What can I do for you
What can I do for you
What can I do for you
I can hear you

And if I find the real without emotion
Has surrounded me
And I can't go on
And you are there
The moment that I close my eyes
You comfort me
We are connected for all of time
I'll never be alone

And oh, I know, the world of real Emotion
Has surrounded me
I won't give into it
Now, I know,
that forward Is the only way my heart
Can go
I hear your voice calling out to me
You'll never be alone

What can I do for you
What can I do for you
What can I do for you
I can hear you
I can hear you

Final Fantasy X-2 Concert Version


I know that you're hiding things
Using gentle words to shelter me
Your words were like a dream
But dreams could never fool me, not that easily.

I acted so distant then
Didn't say goodbye before you left
But I was listening
You'll fight your battles far from me, far too easily.

"Save your tears, 'cause I'll come back"
I could hear that you whispered as you walked through that door
But still I swore
To hide the pain I when turned back the pages
Shouting might have been the answer
What if I'd cried my eyes out and begged you not to depart?
But now I'm not afraid to say what's in my heart!

'Cause a thousand words
Call out through the ages
They'll fly to you
Even though I can't see
I know they're reaching you
Suspended on silver wings
Oh, a thousand words, 1000 embraces
Will cradle you, making all of
Your weary days seem far away
They'll hold you foreverrrrrrrrr!

Oh, a thousand words (a thousand words)
Have never been spoken (oh yeah)
They'll fly to you
They'll carry you home (carry you home)
And back into my arms
Suspended on silver wings (on silver wings!)
And a thousand words (oh!)
Call out through the ages (call through the ages!)
They'll cradle you (oh yeah!)
Turning all of the lonely years to only days (only days!)
They'll hold you foreverrrrrrrrr!
Ohhhhhhhh, a thousand words.

Orchestrated Version


I know that you're hiding things
Using gentle words to shelter me
Your words were like a dream
But dreams could never fool me, not that easily.

I acted so distant then
Didn't say goodbye before you left
But I was listening
You'll fight your battles far from me, far too easily.

"Save your tears, 'cause I'll come back"
I could hear that you whispered as you walked through that door
But still I swore
To hide the pain when I turned back the pages
Shouting might have been the answer
What if I'd cried my eyes out and begged you not to depart?
But now I'm not afraid to say what's in my heart!

Though a thousand words
Have never been spoken
They'll fly to you
Crossing over the time and distance holding you
Suspended on silver wings
And a thousand words, 1000 confessions
Will cradle you, making all of the pain
You feel seem far away
They'll hold you foreverrrrrrrrr!


The dream isn't over yet
Though I often say I can't forget
I still relive that day
You've been there with me all the way
I still hear you say:
"Wait for me, I'll write you letters."
I could see how you stammered with your eyes to the floor
But still I swore
To hide the doubt when I turned back the pages
Anger might have been the answer
What if I'd hung my head and said that I couldn't wait?
But now I'm strong enough to know, it's not too late.

'Cause a thousand words
Called out through the ages
They'll fly to you
Even though we can't see
I know they're reaching you
Suspended on silver wings
Oh, a thousand words, 1000 embraces
Will cradle you, making all of
Your weary days seem far away
They'll hold you foreverrrrrrrrr!

Oh, a thousand words
Have never been spoken
They'll fly to you
They'll carry you home
And back into my arms
Suspended on silver wings, ohhhhhh!
And a thousand words
Called out through the ages
They'll cradle you
Turning all of the lonely years to only days
They'll hold you foreverrrrrrrrr!


Confusing Lyrics Notes:

1. "Shouting might have been the answer" - I had this line written
 as "Shadow might have been the answer" because that's what it sounded
like to me and also because of what the Fayth said about Shuyin being
"just a shadow," but I've received a number of e-mails now that the PAL
version is out that the captioning says differently and after listening
some more, I'm willing to go with that.

2. On the second-to-last line, the one before the final "They'll hold you 
foreverrrrrrrr!," I had "only days" as "holy days" because
that's what it sounded like to me. 
Muse90210 tells me that putting an "h" sound at the start
is a tactic to keep the sound flowing.


With the PAL version updates in place
and two recent corrections for "real Emotion," 
I don't think that there are any more mistakes. 
Hopefully, there aren't any more mistakes. I really hope.


Updates:

July 28, 2004 -  Corrections thanks to Muse90210
