Eyes on Me

I love this song ‘Eyes on Me’ from Final Fantasy 8, sang by Faye Wong, even though I’m not fond of playing games like this and watching anime. I didn’t even have a chance to view this game.

I remember, I think it was year 2000 or 2001, when I was still working in a newspaper company, my 2 officemates were anime and game addicts. One day, one of them played this song. Since then, I began to like it. I like the melody, lyrics and the musical arrangement. It is also inspiring…

I love singing this at home and in the office with few listeners but I think I could never sing this song in public because the pitch is so high, I cannot reach the high notes very well, it doesn’t fit my low voice. It’s not nice to hear the song if you would make the pitch lower.

Here’s the lyrics…

Eyes on Me (Faye Wong)

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 wanted 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 your’re holding back
Or 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

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
