Hey everyone, Troisnyx here, joined by Phyrnna to finally bring you the full version of A Breeze From Home, vocal version.

This song was requested of me in April, and I delivered it in August, or thereabouts. I worked on it nonprofit, as my circumstances demand.

Now, about the making of the song: Phy and I talked at length about the feel of this song, and we both agreed that it should start sparsely, and build up into an orchestral swell as the piece progresses. I wrote the lyrics over a month; they initially were hard to come by but flowed naturally after some time. I attempted to play this on guitar, and struggled and almost tore my hair up in frustration. And the one take I DID manage to record was riddled with errors that I felt I was running out of time. See, I know my chords, but I do not have the muscle memory to play them to perfection yet -- but I was determined to do this on my own. So I decided to cheat.

And cheat I did. I layered my poor Epiphone Les Paul playing with a MIDI guitar track. And I crooned with all the emotion I could muster for this track. The finished track almost made me cry. And I guess now it's almost making me cry that it's going in EBF5 proper, however small the track time might be. I am eternally grateful. Thanks, Phy. <3

Composition, mix and master by Phy, lyrics, vox, guitar and arrangement by yours truly.

BTW: It is 30 November where I am typing this, and both the game and the soundtrack are out! Go check out Epic Battle Fantasy 5 on Steam, and go check out Phy's Bandcamp for the full OST. You won't be disappointed!

LYRICS:

Home
Oh I've been gone so long
Felt like forever
And now I see the green fields of home
Long have I roamed
Long have I hoped
to see the usual faces smiling at me
And now I know that I'm really home

Home
Where all the trees grow stoutly green before me
Where everything still shines, full of life
Long have I roamed
Long have I yearned
to see them standing proudly there
Did I know
how much they would remind me of home

I had left to see the world
beyond what I knew
And now I know no more than back then
Long have I roamed
Long have I dreamed
to have a hero's welcome waiting for me
But I don't need it now
Cause I'm home

Oh I've been gone so long
Felt like forever
And now I see the green fields of home
