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

The first time I listened to this was that hardest nostalgia that hit me.
Like the old times , when newgrounds was new,ebf is like one of those cartons you used to watch as a kid,this is really something different,it made me tear.
We left a home to build another.

This song motivated me to write another book after losing the only copy of my first one.
Probably because it really fits the feeling of not belonging I am mostly unable to avoid when writing.

Troisnyx responds:

The feeling of not belonging is something I personally relate to a lot, so I'm really glad that it has given you the motivation you need.

I cri evritim

Absolutely amazing. When I got to the point where it plays I was a bit surprised, but it quickly grew on me and is now among my favourite songs ever. Great job!
