Frederic Francois Chopin: [PlayStation 3 version]

[voiceover]

Frederic Francois Chopin: Why? Why did it happen? Why was she destined to die? What crime could a girl like that have possibly committed to deserve such a grim fate? She was only 14. And during those brief 14 years, what did she do? Simply cherish a love of music and revel in her girlish dreams. I'll never forget her. Even if the cruel passage of time should wear the threads of memory so thin they break, I will always remember.

Frederic Francois Chopin: [voiceover, as a scene from the game's opening plays out] I won't let you die, Polka. After all, you've only been alive for fourteen years. A fourteen-year old girl must live her life. When the sun is out, they hide in their buds and then open their blossoms only when it is truly important. Drawing in even the faintest amount of light, they decisively embody it. They wait for the moment when the world is trapped in darkness and then blossom with glowing light. And in doing so reflect something that people can never see. On the grassy plain, they paint a picture of the star-filled night sky, that was blotted out by the city lights. Isn't it pitch black around you? Isn't the world covered in darkness? Now, Polka. Come. It's two o'clock in the morning. The time for you to blossom has come. Do you remember? You said it was up to me whether I wanted to call them heaven's mirror or death lights. I'm still allowed to choose, am I not? Well then, I shall make my definitive choice right now. That flower that so resembles you; that flower that boldly challenges the darkness; I choose to call it Heaven's Mirror!

Polka: Frederic, you said before that this whole world is all just a dream you're having, right? But if you're in your own dream, how can you be so completely positive that what's happening is only a dream. And if what you're experiencing in the dream is so realistic to you, how you can even tell what's actually the real world? And to prove my point, you didn't read my mind earlier. You were wrong. I was thinking about leaving Tenuto. I want to go out into the world and live my own life, even if it only exists inside your dream. I don't know how much time I have left to live, but I want to live what's left of my life in a positive way, bringing happiness to others. I just want to help people somehow.

Count Waltz: I wanted power for the sake of having it. With enough power, I can make, not only Forte and Baroque, but the whole world bow down before me. Only then will I feel truly alive!

Frederic Francois Chopin: This place used to be much more beautiful. You have a heart that sees the world with open eyes, don't you?

Polka: Who... who are you? And what are you doing out here this late at night?

Frederic Francois Chopin: [not listening] Everything in the world slowly fades with time. It is very difficult to remain still and keep things exactly as they are in just one particular moment. But because everything shifts only a little bit at a time, no one really notices the change.

Polka: Agogo, thank you for saving me.

Beat: I've never seen one of those before. Oh, I know! I'll take a picture of it.

[just as Beat takes out his camera, the agogo vanishes]

Polka: Where did it go?

Allegretto: [slightly frustrated] Great job, Beat. You scared it off by taking that stupid thing out! I wished I could've touched it.

Solfege: I wonder if I have become a bit more like the sea water... when it's stirred by the beauty of the moon. Thank you, Polka dear. Please, be happy.

[the young form of Polka is transported by the glowing agogos to the ruined world and she reappears as a 14-year-old girl]

Beat: It's Polka! She's... she's glowing!

Allegretto: Polka...

[Polka touches down and as she does, the ruined world is magically restored to a field of flowers. The two race forward, then share a hug. The camera pans up to show the wispy clouds in the sky and the scene ends]

Polka: [Xbox 360 version] I must do this. And it's for the person who means the most to me. My life is nothing compared to his. Doing this is easy if it's for him.

[She closes her eyes and launches herself backward, off a cliff. She is then shown falling slowly]

Polka: Thank you, everyone. I know it didn't last very long, but really, this was the best time I've ever had in my life.

[She opens her eyes]

Polka: If I blow him a kiss, I wonder, will it reach him up there? No, I guess it won't.

[stands up and raises his arms]

Allegretto: Damn it!

[strikes the ground with both fists, then turns to Frederic]

Allegretto: You! You come barging into our world out of nowhere, then just leave when you get tired of it! This is supposed to be your dream, right? Well then, why couldn't you do anything? No. That's not it. It isn't a dream at all. It's real. And I don't know what, but I have to do *something*!

Frederic Francois Chopin: That's true. Perhaps this is no longer just a dream.

[gets up and everyone turns to him]

Frederic Francois Chopin: Have I awakened? At long last...

Beat: [backing away slightly] F-Frederic?

Frederic Francois Chopin: [looking around and observing that the scenery around him has not changed] Why? The dream was at an end. Oh, no. No, it can't be. Not Polka.

[stares at his hands in confused shock]

Polka: [falling into darkness] Thank you, everyone. I know it didn't last very long, but really, this was the most fun I've ever had in my life. If I blow him a kiss, I wonder, will it reach him up there? I hope so. I really do.

Narrator: [ending of "Shape of Life," an extra seen following the closing credits] When he was gone, the snail nodded, and said, "Oh, Mr. Caterpillar. You already knew the answer. Happiness, disappointment, sorrow, anger; these are the sights, smells, sounds and tastes. Life can take on many different shapes."

Frederic Francois Chopin: How should I put this? If I told you that your world exists in a dream I'm having, would it startle you? At this moment, I'm asleep in Paris. As a pianist - and as a composer, as well - I have produced many popular works that have brought me a rather good deal of renown there.

Prince Crescendo: Every choice creates a path and determines what tomorrow will bring. But regardless, we cannot expect others to make those choices for us. After all, if left to others, there's no guarantee they'll make the right decision. And when that happens, who is it that will have to accept responsibility? The answer, of course, is ourselves. No one else would be willing to accept it. So, we all strive to live our lives to the fullest.
