about

“You Were There” is a calm, meditative song featured at the end of the imaginative action-adventure game IcCO. I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it, and wanted to interpret it with a more dramatic twist.

A huge thanks to Gabriel Vizcarra, Jeff Fugelsang, Jason Gallaty, Jared Cowing and Davey Patterson for their contributions, advice and guidance in getting this piece off the ground--couldn't have done it without you!

lyrics

The island bathes in the sun's bright rays
Distant hills wear a shroud of grey
A lonely breeze whispers in the trees
Sole witness to history

Fleeting memories rise
From the shadows of my mind
Sing "nonomori" - endless corridors
Say "nonomori" - hopeless warriors
You were there
You were there

Am I forever dreaming
How to define the way I'm feeling

You were there
Countless visions they haunt me in my sleep
You were there
Though forgotten all promises we keep

Slaves to our destiny
I recall a melody
Sing "nonomori" - seasons lit with gold
Say "nonomori" - legends yet untold
You were there
You were there

Happiness follows sorrow
Only believing in tomorrow

You were there
Countless visions they haunt me in my sleep
You were there
Though forgotten all promises we keep

The island bathes in the sun's bright rays
Distant hills wear a shroud of grey
A lonely breeze whispers in the trees
Sole key to this mystery
