AzuLatios This is probably the most heartwarming fan-made video game song I've ever heard. Having played the game and knowing the atmosphere of Animal Crossing: New Leaf itself, I was extremely moved when I heard this song. the rhythm, tune, and feeling of the song greatly inspires a happy, uplifting feeling. I highly recommend this wonderful track! Favorite track: Turning Over a New Leaf [Ft. Emily Jones].

Track Name: Turning Over a New Leaf [Ft. Emily Jones]
Hop off a train
Into a new town
It's exactly what I needed
I can't explain
What I have found
But it's exactly where
I long to be

I'm in charge now,
But I don't know how
The stars must have aligned
All these friendly faces
Erase any traces
Of worry from my mind

So it's time I turned over
A new leaf...

And if you say
That you're really here to stay
I can do my best to play my part
And give you the start you need
To succeed

And if you're unsure,
I will be the cure
I will be here on the job
Waiting for you, loyal and true,
'Cause that's what friends do!

Now I know that
I'm bound to roam
Even though it pains me to leave this home
I gotta catch 'em all,
And slide between worlds,
I gotta smash my foes,
And see the dreams of two plumbers unfurl

There's more to life
Than catching fish from the seas,
I'm tired of weeds and getting
Stung by bees, so it's
Time to leave the mayor's chair
The truth really is I can't always be there

So it's time I turned over
A new leaf...

I hope you'll say
That you're coming back some day
I will do my best to fill your void
Me and Lloyd will try to scrape by

And if you're so sure
That you'll be fine alone
Then I will be too, waiting for you
Loyal and true,
'Cause that's what friends should do...

I've been away for so long
I wonder where he's gone
I wonder what they're (he's) doing right now
And now I find
That you're on my mind
So it's time I turned over
A new leaf...

I hope you'll say
That you're finally here to stay
(I'm finally here to stay!)
I'm so glad you're back in our little town
Without you around, nothing's been the same
But it's fine!
I always knew I'd (hoped you'd) change my (your) mind

Because I (you) knew I was waiting for you
Loyal and true...
That's what friends do!

It's what we do-o-o-o-!
That's what friends do!
