Hey, want to be a part of our FFX album? Sure, I'll do a gypsy punk cover of Rikku's Theme in parallel minor with original lyrics written and sung in a fake language I don't know! This was definitely an interesting challenge, but I had a ton of fun with it (and somewhere along the way apparently became Materia Collective's resident Al Bhed expert). Special thanks go out to my collaborators, who really helped bring this arrangement to life with some excellent performances. E ruba oui ahzuo dra dnylg! — Ian Luckey

Wanderer with golden hair
Bringing joy and despair
You've taken me captive
Your spirit is untamed
Beauty, elusive like a great mirage

Huntress of the undiscovered
Moving with such grace
An eternal voyager
Bohemian, explorer
My soul totally bewitched by your radiance

So then what is to be my role?
In the light of your smile
I am merely a shadow
Those emerald eyes
Color my life, but pierce my heart like daggers

Dazzling gypsy of the sea
To me, you are an enigma
But I want to understand
What are you running from?
And will you ever realize that I run beside you?

If lightning strikes between us
I promise we don't need to fear
When lightning strikes between us
It will be the beginning, not the ending

The lightning strikes between us
And this could only mean one thing
That you also share these feelings
And I would gladly burn
To ignite that spark
