I’ve always loved Luna’s “boat song” from GameArts RPG Lunar: Silver Star Story. The cinema at that part of the game was so well placed, and it’s such a pretty song! I took the single verse and lyric right out of the game and did my own version, focusing on layered piano and bell parts over a string orchestra. The vocal starts out very soft and quiet, but builds as the song does.

Lyrics:
Wishing on a dream that seems far off
Hoping it will come today
Into the starlit night
Foolish dreamers turn their gaze
Waiting on a shooting star
But

What if that star is not to come
Will their dreams fade to nothing?
When the horizon darkens most
We all need to believe there is hope

Is an angel watching closely over me?
Can there be a guiding light I’ve yet to see?
I know my heart should guide me but
There’s a hole within my soul
What will fill this emptiness inside of me

Am I to be satisfied without knowing
I wish then for a chance to see
Now all I need,
Is my star to come…

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH, this boat song has brought me so many memories. It also gave me the courage to sing in front of people for the first time in my life. I owe so much to this song. It’s one of the best covers ever! <3

Good stuff, man. Nice to see you rocking the vocals. Was this track actually on the Sega CD version, though, or was it part of the Saturn/PSX releases?
