The Beginning and the End

The goal was to make an unforgettable cover of this unforgettable song. Due to all the dialogue, sounds, and commotion during the final scene, it is difficult to fully appreciate The Beginning and the End. Good friend Krasi Krastev did a gracious, free favor in assisting with translating and transliterating the original Bulgarian lyrics, which seem to have no official release. The lyrics may not be 100% accurate to the original, but they are extremely close. So, if you are a fan of this game and wish you could have sung along for all these years (faithfully and phonetically), here is your best chance. And let us hear it for Materia's singers for a great emulation of the Great Voices of Bulgaria.


Dvama sami si im gorzhnya mrag svetla sila im dava nadezhda
Krachat bez put is posoka i svetlonen put kum nebesa nabezhda

Mig nad itoiz gora blet zad
vizhdat luch svetlina dve surtsa zatoplyat shtedar

Idvat oblatsi . . .

Slava . . .
