Tips for Buying EarthBound

August 8th, 2009 | MOTHER 1, Videos

People send in links to this video often, so it’s about time I posted it. This is called Because You Were There ~Eight Melodies~.

I don’t have any English lyrics handy – I’m told there are some somewhere in the video comments, but I haven’t checked them or know how accurate they are.

I listen to this a lot…it’s catchy. Although Loid’s voice is a bit strange.

I have this as a MP3! Maybe someday I’ll burn a disc with it or something…

I like this song a lot. I sent him another version of it that I really like but from what it sounds like it won’t be up for like a month.

Here, the translation of the song:

When I become an adult, I might not remember. But I absolutely do not want to forget… these memories…

I realize now that I am a small in a very big world
In front of the tracks, I look at what I have yet to travel
I mustnt turn back, but theres no way I can make it that far
Im think this is a trivial misunderstanding, but if I try to understand it, Ill learn to like it
I became someone who thought this
Because you were there.

During my travels, I made my very treasured friends. The shy Loid, and Ana, who is braver than she looks.

I cant trust peoples words, theyll just laugh secretly at me, right?
Theres something with awesome power that I dont understand; theres no way something like it would be hiding in this place
Its something without a form, but Im sure its here somewhere, could that thing be my courage?
I realized this kind of thing
Because you were there.

I dont trust others, all of their true feelings and motives,
The things they say, theyre all fake. Because of this, I was hiding in my room
The power to pass others barriers is kindness and warmth
I learned the meaning of being with others
Because you were there.

Many partners, many worlds, many atmospheres, many recollections.
A broken melody became one.
Now, lets sing. This is your song.

After returning from the end of our journey, all we have is fun memories
We passed some hard times, but Im sure that our hearts will be dreaing of the next adventure
In this way, when I become older, everyone, papa, mama, and me
We can all be grateful for everything now
Because you were there.

Who wants a high quality MP3 of this? I know you all do! 😀

So here it is, from the niconico douga description:

you have to use the password “snatch”.

This song rocks.

I just love this song.

I love this song. I’d go far to say that it’s even better than the “Eight Melodies” in the MOTHER album (which I also love).

I love it so much that I even arranged the lyrics found in MugiwaraYonkou’s post to make it fit in with the song. It might have a couple of things a little off but hey, it’s my first try.

When I become an adult, I might not remember. But I absolutely do not want to forget… these memories…

I realized now that I’m a small boy living in a very big world
I realize as I stand in front of the tracks.
I take a look at where I have yet to go
and I know that I might not get far, but I also know not to turn back.
I don’t know if this feeling is normal or trivial, but one thing that I do know for sure
I learned to like it and there’s a reason for it and it’s because you were there.

During my travels, I made two very treasured friends. The shy Lloyd, and Ana, whois braver than she looks.

My name’s Lloyd and I’m just a smart , shy, quiet kid that likes to hide inside trashcans after sunrise.
I don’t ever trust what other people say, they’re all just nothing but a bunch of dirty, nasty, ugly, filthy lies.
That’s what I used to believe since I began to conceive an awesome power that hides deep within the heart.
That power makes me glad since there’s a reason for it and since because you were there.

My name’s Ana and I don’t usually talk to other people since I don’t believe their feelings and motives.
I think the things they say are just a bunch of lies,
so I decide to hide in my room until my mom suddenly went goodbye.
While searching for my mom I met a really caring friend of mine
who’d never back down on the things that he had promised.
I learned the meaning of friends and the truth of love
and it’s because you were there.

Many partners, many worlds, many atmospheres, many recollections.
A broken melody became one. Now, let’s sing. This is your song.

We returned from our adventure now that the world is safe to live in with all of our good memories intact.
We had a lot of hard times; some almost made us cry,
but we grew stronger, smarter, and we even made a life long lovely impact.
When we grow up, our mama, papa, brothers, sisters, lovers, and all of those that we came to know and love
We can now all be very grateful now…

And it’s because you were there…
