A Breeze From Home ~ Vocal Ver.


Author Comments

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!



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

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

Troisnyx responds:

I don't think I'm quite there yet, and doubt I'll ever actually get there but uh, thanks. Glad you enjoyed the piece. ^_^

Really really great production. I hope some time you can work on a version without the midi guitar, whether it be by getting someone to play it for you or if you can manage to nail it. Nonetheless, such a great song.

Why does this have to be so beautiful?
Love the guitar, and the strings, and the vocals.
All the love and hard work that surely went in to this definitely paid off.
Amazing. Beautiful. Wonderful.
5/5 - 10/10.
One (if not the) most beautiful songs I've heard on Newgrounds.

i really love the song, its very beautiful. i can tell you guys worked hard on it. <3 much love

It's winter right now, yet this song makes me feel warm and calm like it is the middle of summer.
