"Ring a Bell" is the opening theme song in the localized North American and European releases of Tales of Vesperia, performed and composed by Bonnie Pink. It is adapted from the Japanese version's theme, "Kane wo Narashite", performed by the same artist. While both songs share the same tune, they have different lyrics in translated form, and they are officially considered to be separate songs.

Game Version Lyrics

English Lyrics

Reaching up for no man's land
To take a breath and take a chance
I walk a thousand nights to change the world
Where to go? When to stop?
Who to trust? What to say?
Found them all, just need someone to share

It's now in the dusk every day to everyone
Ain't so strong, I ain't so strong to go
Living in the past is not the way to live
I wish you could hear me say that I miss you

Why were we there back to back?
Why were we there face to face?
I must be the light when you're in the dark
If you lose me somewhere, and your tears are in the air
I will ring a bell until you feel me by your side

What has been in the mix too long?
There's the peace when you're at war
Heads or tails, You and I
Light and dark, Ups and downs
What has been in the middle? What's there to divide us?
If you're hurt, cry and say can't you see your might of the heart

Why were we there back to back?
Why were we there face to face?
I must be the light when you're in the dark
If I lose you somewhere, and I'm still hanging in there
I will ring a bell until you feel me by your side

Reaching up for no man's land
To take a breath and take a chance
I walk a thousand nights to change the world
Where to go? When to stop?
Who to trust? What to say?
Found them all, just need someone to share

It's now in the dusk every day to everyone
Ain't so strong, I ain't so strong to go
Living in the past is not the way to live
I wish you could hear me say that I miss you

Why were we there back to back?
Why were we there face to face?
I must be the light when you're in the dark
If you lose me somewhere, and your tears are in the air
I will ring a bell until you feel me by your side

Looking up into the sky, looking for the reason
Why I'm here, and why you can't be here
Who's to hate? Who's to blame?
Who's to hurt? Who's to love?
Who decides? Why can't we be the same?

Try to believe walking down the lonesome road
Ain't so far, I ain't so far from you
Staying the way you are means solitude
I wish you were here and shook off my fear

Why were we there back to back?
Why were we there face to face?
I must be the light when you're in the dark
If I lose you somewhere, and I'm still hanging in there
I will ring a bell until you feel me by your side

What has been in the mix too long?
There's the peace when you're at war
Heads or tails, You and I
Light and dark, Ups and downs
What has been in the middle? What's there to divide us?
If you're hurt, cry and say can't you see your might of the heart

Why were we there back to back?
Why were we there face to face?
I must be the light when you're in the dark
If you lose me somewhere, and your tears are in the air
I will ring a bell until you feel me by your side

Trivia

  • The song marks the first time in the Tales series that a vocal theme is used in the game's localized versions.
  • After clearing the North American or European versions of the game, if the player waits for a short period of time on the title screen, the opening will play once more with the Japanese opening theme, "Kane wo Narashite". This also happens if the player decides to watch the opening again using the movie player at Nam Cobanda Isle.
