Ovelia is one of my favorite characters in all of Final Fantasy, and her relationship with Delita is central to her story. This song takes place shortly after she is told she is not the real Ovelia, when Delita finds her and comforts her. The happy section revolves around her newfound sense of purpose. Then, as in the game, her theme becomes more reverent as they take their marriage vows and begin their rule. As time passes she begins having doubts about Delita's motives, and the piece ends on a tragic note reflecting her distrust of Delita.
Ovelia, dry your tears,
I was not born of noble folk.
I've had no choice but to be bold and now you...
A story, a mirror, a reflection of my own. (My name's unknown)
We were not born upon a throne (Thought I was born upon a throne)
But we are here. Look at me now. (But I am lost and don’t know how.)
We can make our own dreams come true. (Can I trust in you?)
Follow me (I can see)
The future looks bright with you by my side.
Watched the world unfold,
Before my blind eyes could perceive,
The truth was not what it had seemed.
So now I let this brave man try, (Let me take)
to be my fortress, be my guide. (your hand and show you.)
One who will take me by his side, (Will you be)
and set me free. (one with me?)
Be stronger, be wiser.
My days of solitude are done.
I am a princess, not a nun!
Set me free.
Delita, I'm ready, to take this journey with you now. (I'll be your shield,)
I frankly don't care why or how. (I know you don't care why or how.)
Just give me strength to face my fears. (Just let me stay, to calm your fears.)
We can change the world, no more tears.
And through it all, (I'll be king o'er all.)
Ivalice will prosper, we'll bring forth a new age.
We'll reclaim this land
And from its roots we will create
A kingdom free from strife and hate.
Our world will shine, under the light, (On the horizon)
Of Tietra's memory kept alive. (I see our new life.)
I promise I won't leave your side, (You are all that)
You're all I need. (I need.)
Look what we've accomplished. (Through you, true peace is now at hand.)
We've come so far and now we stand (Together)
Your kingdom will prosper. (Our marriage vows will keep us strong.)
I can't help feeling something's wrong, (I promised you, we'd carry on)
Can I trust in you?
In you. (I would die for you.)
Darkness lies beneath.
My soul is troubled, I am weak.
The man who promised me to keep,
from being used, just like a pawn. (Can't you trust me?)
A trust that's broken, it's now gone. (My heart is breaking.)
I can't believe what you have done, (Are you no longer listening?)
