Allegory of the Wind (風のアレゴリー, Kaze no Allegory) is an image song for Iori Yagami. This song is one of the few character related songs to only have one instrument: an acoustic guitar. It was released as an extra song for The King of Fighters '97 Arranged Soundtrack and is available on various compilation CDs. Due to the mood of the song and the general climax of The King of Fighters '97, several Japanese fans thought this song was Iori's epitaph.

Allegory of the Wind
Japanese lyrics

Kurai roji ura miageta yozora ni

Hoshi ga hitotsubu koborete iru

Tozashita kankaku o sora e hanatsu

Mukashi no hikari de terashite kure


Kono mama hitori kieru mo ii

Don't break my soul whoa whoa tonight

Kawaita kaze to surechigau


Sabita puraido korogaru rakugaki

Yaseta mikazuki yoru ni ukabu

Toraeta eien wa sono bakagiri

Yoake ga tooku de kowarete yuku


Dokokade hitori nageku mo ii

Don't break my soul whoa whoa tonight

Tsumetai kumo ga nagareteku


Kono mama hitori kieru mo ii

Don't break my soul whoa whoa tonight

Kaze ga otoshita aregorii

English translation

Looking up at the night sky from a dark alleyway

A star breaks off from the rest

It gave out a cry of regret to the sky

and shines a light from long ago


It's fine if I disappear alone like this

Don't break my soul whoa whoa tonight

The dry wind passes through me


My rusted pride rolls in graffiti

As the slim crescent moon rises in the night

Trying to eternally stay that way

Until it's destroyed by the distant dawn


Wherever I'm thrown, being alone is fine

Don't break my soul whoa whoa tonight

The cold cloud flows through me


It's fine if I disappear alone like this

Don't break my soul whoa whoa tonight

The year before last allegory of the wind
