The theme, Dragonsong, has been composed by legendary series composer Nobuo Uematsu and features the vocal prowess of Susan Calloway. Calloway also provided the vocals for Answers, the theme of FINAL FANTASY XIV 1.0 and A Realm Reborn.

SQUARE ENIX have released the song in full, along with an accompanying video that features some spoilers for the end of the Patch 2.55 Main Scenario, as well as new scenes from the upcoming expansion.

Lyrics:

Children of the land do you hear

Echoes of truths that once rang clear

Two souls intertwined

One true love they did find

Bringing land and heavens near

But flames that burn full bright, soon fell dark

Memories dimmed by shadowed hearts

In the waxing gloom did wane the lover’s moon

Watching as their worlds drift apart

One soul’s cry

A passion dwelling within

Sacrifice, a final plea to her kin

Yet this bond of hope, by treachery was broke

Scattering her words to the wind

Swelling over long,

seas of blood, are a song

And death an afterthought

To those who fight for naught

A throne, lying empty

A reign, incomplete

Alone, for eternity

A pain, without cease

Children of the land, answer this

Why must you turn to empty bliss

Tell me why break trust, why turn the past to dust

Seeking solace in the abyss

Tell me why create, a circle none can break

Why must you let go, the life you were bestowed

This I fear I’ll never know

Never know
