    This is a Song Lyrics made exclusively for the English Lyrics of the
    Kiss Me Goodbye Song featured in Final Fantasy XII by Angela Aki. I will not
    include the japanese romaji lyrics because there's another document that
    covers this here on GameFAQs. However, if I recieve requests to submit the
    JP lyrics, I will do that.
    This version of Kiss me Good-bye is the one included in the game (even in
    the japanese version), it is also included in the fourth disc of the FFXII
    OST, and as such, deserves proper recognition.
    With that said, if you want to contribute or you just want to comment, please

    1. Kiss Me Good-bye (English Vocals)
    Composer: Nobuo Uematsu
    Lyrics: Angela Aki
    Vocal: Angela Aki
    Note: This _is_ the English version of the song, it is not a translation
    or an interpretation of the Japanese version.
    You say my love is all you need, 
    to see you through
    but I know these words
    are not quite true
    Here is the path you're looking foran open door
    Leading to worlds you long to explore
    Go, if you must move on alone
    I'm gonna make it on my own
    -Main Chorus-
    Kiss me good-bye 
    love's memory
    Follow your heart
    and find your destiny
    Don't shed a tear
    for love's mortality
    For you put the dream
    in my reality
    -End Main Chorus-
    As times goes by I know you'll see this of me
    I loved you enough to let you go free
    Go, I will give you wings to fly
    Cast all your fears into the sky
    Kiss me goodbye 
    love's mystery
    All of my life
    I'll hold you close to me
    Don't shed a tear 
    for love's mortality
    For you put the dream
    in my reality
    Kiss me goodbye
    love's memory
    You put the dream
    in my reality 
    2. Kiss Me Good-bye (English Translation)
    Composer: Nobuo Uematsu
    Lyrics: N/A
    Vocal: Angela Aki
    Note: This is a translation of the japanese version. It is included here in
    order to show the changes between the official English version and the
    japanese lyrics.
    Update: Also, please note this translation was not done by me, so any
    questions should go to the original source:
    Sorry for the misconception and I hope this will clear further confusion.
    Even though you are lost, the door is open.
    Aren't you satisfied with the world of just two of us?
    Because I give you wings, please believe me and you will be okay to fly.
    Kiss me goodbye, love is memory
    Even though I lose you
    Because the loved memory changes to strength
    even though everybody fall in love looking for a definite thing,
    the love that does not shake is inside myself
    Kiss me goodbye, goodbye
    I will change to a new me
    Kiss me goodbye, love is memory
    If we change to a new us
    Kiss me good-bye, I will not cry
    Because I was able to love you
    Because I was able to love you
