    I just finished playing Ico, (after 12 years) While I was listening to the bewitching closing song I realized that there's a word unfamiliar to my ears :

    ...Fleeting memories rise
    From the shadows of my mind
    Sing "nonomori" - endless corridors
    Say "nonomori" - hopeless warriors
    You were there
    You were there

    Am I forever dreaming
    How to define the way I'm feeling...


    nonomori, which I can bet is Japanese, and also the keyword in the song.
    Been wondering if anyone knows the meaning.

    It means "if you think Last Guardian is ever coming out you can get to fuck".

    Apparently it's in Yorda's language, which is romanji reversed. It means "thank you".

    Stefanson reversed it backwards and crafted it into magical music.

    What has happened to our dear prince?
