About

Nemuru Omoi is one of two of Paine's image songs for Final Fantasy X-2. However so far to my knowledge only Nemuru Omoi's music is used in the soundtrack as "Paine's Theme". Nemuru means "to sleep" in Japanese, however when used with Omoi, which means feeling it leans more towards "dormant" than "sleep" or "sleepy". I feel the lyrics fit Paine perfectly. Her past with the Crimson Squad was not pleasant and you feel in the beginning that Paine is very guarded about her thoughts and feelings. As though she has buried them, "sleeping" so to speak.

Lyrics


motsure karamu omoi
itsu made mo
matowaritsuki
munashiku sabita kusari
toki no iyashi wa uso
kanjou ni kagi wo kakete fuujiru sube oboeta

todokanai omoi nara daitemo mayowaseru dake
samete kawakeba kako ni shizumu
nageite'ta kioku nara wasuretemo kamawanai hazu
fukai umi no soko oboreru you ni nemure

(ano hi no watashi no itami wa dokoka e)

amai negai wa himete nemurase
shizukesa matoi tada nagarete'kufuujikometa omoi

itsuka toki ni oshi nagasare arika wo miushinatte'ru
tadoru kako wa kanata
kanjou no kagi mo kakete watashi wo nakusu watashi

todometai omoi sae daitemo kobore ochite'ku
utsuro na kawaki dake ga nokoru
nagashite'ta namida sae kakegae nai takaramono da to
nakushite kara ki ga tsuku nante hiniku

(ano hi no watashi no egao mo dokoka e)

amai omoi no kakera wo mune ni
zawameku machi wo tada nagamete'ru

semete watashi no mado hirakeba
nemureru kage mieru hazumezamereba torimodoseru?

mado wo
aketa nara
koko made
todoku no kana
hikari......
