    The only words I've ever heard is in one of the campaign songs, and I don't think that's in English. It's a cool song, though. Probably my favorite song in the game.

    There is at least one song that has text in it, but I don't one what the text is. You could turn up the volume and find out yourself.

    It's in Latin. This is "Divinitus". I agree - it's amazing!
    I have text of this song and I can give you it.

    Song in credits titled "Forever".

    I don't have text of, for example, "Lost souls" (song from BI's intro, and you can hear after defeat battle).

    I know the lyrics to Forever by heart:


    What awaits us?
    A cloud has fallen on our shore
    The mighty hand and sword of Roman war
    And I'll be brave, be strong, be true, my love
    And I'll be waiting for you, forever...

    My love you march to war defiant
    May god returneth you triumphant
    And you'll be brave, be strong, be true, my love
    And I'll be waiting for you, forever...

    "And remember this above all: Our Roman gods are watching. Make sure
    they are not ashamed!"

    How can I wait unknowing?
    This is the price of war
    We rise with noble intentions
    And we risk all that is pure
    We are only as great as our hearts will allow
    What awaits us?

    Forever...

    What will become of us? What will be, will be
    But I hope and I pray, every single day
    You'll come to me, come home to me, come home to me...

    Divinitus is a latin song that lists the true traits of a true roman.

    hellatorius victorialis (warlike; victory)
    erastus necessitas (lovers; death)
    honararius despondeo (honour; despair)
    spiritus obdormio (life; death)
    patriota gladiator (country; fighter)
    afflictio ommento (pain; waiting)
    divinitus salutaris (heaven; salvation)
    furtivus libertas (furtive love; freedom)

    I found in the Internet that some person, after studying Latin for six years, translated this song into English:

    "From the victory of greece/Troy"
    "beloved inevitability"
    "I pledge my honor"
    "(my) spirit/life falls asleep"
    "Gladiator of the fatherland"
    "to the remaining pain"
    "The wholesome divinity"
    "stolen freedom"

    I had translation both song, but thank You!
    Do You have another translations?

    Do You remember song from BI intro - it's "Lost Souls"? The same person who sang in "Forever" and "Divinitus" (Angela van Dyck) sang in in "Lost Souls". Even though there is not a lot text.

    Saggitarius, you've gotten some way off the mark replies but I had to drag out the old Latin textbook to get the lyrics straight when I heard this wonderful song.

    I don't know where the lyrics circulating the net came from....I hear something different.

    Best I can figure - excuse spelling
    Annatorias victori alis eratus(?) necessitas gravitas despondeo spiritas obdormio patria te(?) gladiator <afflctio homento><?> divinitus salutaris furtivus libertas

    A year will have passed to nourish victory, the heavy requirement I pledge (as in a marriage vow?), with the breath I fall asleep, for you the homeland's gladiator, <???> revere the divine influence for secret freedom

    It sounds to me like a song from a young woman to her warrior love off to war.

    Actually, according to Jeff van Dyck, the composer and lyricist for the Rome: Total War Soundtrack, the vocals for "Divinitus" were simply set to a string of quasi-Latin words. Though no more has been released by van Dyck or the Creative Assembly on the lyrics, I can say, having myself studied Latin for nine years, that, in addition to Angela van Dyck's apparently underdeveloped Latin pronunciation, there is hardly any sense to be made of the piece as a whole, either by my ear, or by the "Latin" lyrics asserted above.

    I do know that the song that opens Rome: Total War(in the intro vid) is called Melee Cafe(as in an eatery).

    Edit: If you want to know how I know that, go on Youtube and search "MercenaryTriarii". He has an archive of Music for the TW games, titles and all.
