Trouble with the audio sample?

"Aerith's Theme" also known as "Aeris' Theme", is an important track in Final Fantasy VII, played at various stages of the game, during the fight with Jenova∙LIFE and during the preceding scene. The theme "Flowers Blooming in the Church" is a remix of Aeris's Theme.

Aerith's theme is played just after the infamous scene in which Sephiroth kills her. The music continues to play through the fight with Jenova∙LIFE, replacing J-E-N-O-V-A. It is also played during the ending after the final boss battle with Sephiroth when Cloud sees Aerith's hand representing the Lifestream.

Lyrics

Japanese

Nagaku tsukuzu kono michi no mukou ni
Shinjirareru mono ga kitto aru
Kaze no naka no tabibito no you ni
Kita no sora o mezashite ikeba
Kiekaketa atsui omoi
Mou ichido mune no naka de
Kagayaki yureru
Futari no sekai o tsutsumu
Namida nante koboshitakunai no
Yowai jibun ni makenai tame ni
Kazaranai kokoro dake ga
Motte iru me ni wa mienai
Ooki na tsubasa
Te o hiroge utainagara
Yuukyuu no toki ni dakare
Inochi o tsunagu
Nagaku tsukuzu kono michi no mukou ni
Shinjirareru mono ga kitto aru

English translation

Straight on this long, continuing road
There is surely something to believe in
Like a traveler in the midst of the wind
I have my eye on the northern sky
The passionate feelings
That were beginning to vanish
Once again sway
In radiance in my chest
I don't want the tears to spill
As so not to lose to my weaker self
In eyes holding only an unadorned spirit
There are great
Unseen wings
I open my arms while singing
To embrace the perpetuity of time
To be tied to life
Straight on this long, continuing road
There is surely something to believe in

Aerith's Theme and the Aria di Mezzo Carattere

Among many fans there exists the belief that Aerith's Theme may have been inspired by or based upon Final Fantasy VI's Aria di Mezzo Carattere. The reason for this stems from many similarities between the songs: the musical scales in which both tracks are written, D-major, similar chord changes, and the fact that they share several notes in their central melodies. There is no source, though, that points the Aria as being the base for Aerith's Theme.
