    As you should know, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes is a remake of the
    original Metal Gear Solid (1998, Playstation), and as such, the songs are
    very similar. And that's something really good, because the first game had
    such a nice soundtrack.

    Basically it brings eletronic beats that can tell the tension of the
    current status of the game, taking the gamer to feel the urgency, peace,
    or whatever feeling it has to. The cutscenes have more orchestrated songs,
    more like epic. Overall the sound work in this game is very nice.

    ==== LYRICS (Original Lyrics in Gaelic) ====

    An cuimhin leat an gra
    Cra croi an ghra
    Nil anois ach ceol na h-oiche
    Taim siorai i ngra
    Leannain le smal
    Leannain le smal

    Lig leis agus beidh leat
    Lig leis agus beidh gra

    Cuimhne leat an t-am
    Nuair a bhi tu sasta

    An cuimhne leat an t-am
    Nuair a bhi tu ag gaire
    Ta an saol iontach
    ma chreideann tu ann

    Tug aghaidh ar an saoi
    is sonas siorai inar measc
    Ceard a tharla do na
    laethanta sin
    Ceard a tharla do na
    h-oicheanta sin

    An cuimhin leat an t-am
    Nuair a bhi tu faoi bhron
    An cuimhin leat an t-am
    Go siorai sileadh na ndeaor

    An ormsa na orainne a bhi
    an locht
    Ag mothu cailite s'ar fan
    Cen fath an t-achrann is
    sileadh na ndeor
    Ta ailleacht sa saol
    Ma chuardaionn tu e
    Ta gliondar sa saol
    Cuardaimis e



    ==== LYRICS (Translated to English) ====

    Do you remember the time when little things made you happy
    Do you remember the time when simple things made you smile
    Life can be wonderful if you let it be
    Life can be simple if you try

    What happened to those days?
    What happened to those nights?
    Do you remember the time when little things made you so sad
    Do you remember the time when simple things made you cry


    Is it just me, or is it just us
    Feeling lost in this world?
    Why do we have to hurt each other?
    Why do we have to shed tears?
    Life can be beautiful if you try
    Life can be joyful if we try
    Tell me I am not alone
    Tell me we are not alone in this world fighting against the wind
    Do you remember the time when simple things made you happy
    Do you remember the time when simple things made you laugh

    You know life can be simple
    You know life is simple
    Because the best thing in life is yet to come
    Because the best is yet to come
