I wrote the lyrics to this beautiful theme from FF9 and worked very hard arranging this song for voice, harp, guitar, various drums, and recorder! I performed all the instrumental parts in the background and am doing all the vocals. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This cover is also found on Overclocked Remix under the title; The Rose General' http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01859/ ══════════════════════════════ A million thanks to the talented artists and cosplayers on deviantart.com!!!! Your gorgeous art brought out the creativity in me!!! ══════════════════════════════ In the lyrics I used the term Rose of May as a metaphor for innocence. Even the great General Beatrix was once an innocent child who'd never seen the horrors of war. I really tried to put her character into the lyrics; her blind loyalty and sense of duty, her guilt over the many deaths she caused in the name of fealty, and her eventual love for Steiner. ^_^ I hope I succeeded? o_o

her heart underneath cries quietly this part of me I choose not to see
what lives must I take for fealty's sake? how much blood must stain this warrior's blade?
war leaves its trail in moonlight so pale its shadows they flow in rivers, in rivers so put on my mask I'll go where they ask so I might once again see the Roses of May
Staining my soul and stinging my eyes the red on my hands won't wash away, wash away no where to run from what I have done I'm no longer, no longer a Rose of May
fate holds the blade before you mirrored in maiden's eyes far from myself I fly into the perilous skies and they said follow the blade before you fear fall and courage rise leave all your tears behind you far from where innocence lies
Cage of the kings No need for wings So turn them to stone from roses to bone
when you look at me what do you see? this costume I weave disfiguring me...
Storm clouds are creeping closer danger is drawing near why am I not protecting all that I once held dear? and you said break free from all that holds you kings hand and maiden's tear run now into my arms together we'll conquer our fears
Led here by fate No longer afraid So here now I lay My Roses of May ══════════════════════════════ ~MP3 DOWNLOADS: ══════════════════════════════ Free MP3 Download: http://www.mediafire.com/?ej24rznuu1i...
