Here I am, the knight of light
This is who I was meant to be
This has alway been my destiny
Then why do I feel like a fraud?

I'm not a legend, I can't be!
I'm just like everyone else, right?
Yesterday I was just a Dark Knight
But now I'm not
And everything's changed
I stand alone and I hate it
And I swear that
I would sacrifice all I have become
To have you and Rosa by my side again.

If I could turn back
Muffle my voice, silence my word
Make it so that I wouldn't be heard
That day... I would in a heartbeat.
If the Fates would give me one chance
There'd be on more dragon in the world
And I wouldn't be hated and alone....


...But where then would we stand?
Who would raise a hand to fight
If not me...?
...Is this how things must be?
Then so be it.
I will fight the lone knight of light
But, spirit, listen to what I say:
If it is my friends that pay
The price for my resistance
I pray the guilt rests on your soul
For all eternity....

And somewhere far away, an echo...
It will, my son, it will.
