Turns out, the popular song in the loading screen at the beginning of the game had a version with the full lyrics, but it was not able to become the official version.
A mysterious video on Genshin Impact’s official YouTube channel featuring various versions of the main theme song in the game’s initial loading screen. One of those variations even has lyrics. In case you don’t know, the music you hear at the beginning of the game while waiting to load is currently a soundtrack without any lyrics.
The famous saying in experimental data that everything is “changeable” exists for a reason. Content from an older version of the game may have been changed before it became the final product. Curious Travelers who want to watch the unlisted video from Genshin Impact’s official YouTube channel will find it in the next part of this article.
This video is an unlisted video, which means Travelers usually can’t see the video if they don’t have the link.
Here are some timestamps relevant to the video above:
0:00: Date – V0
0:21: Date – V1
0:59: Date – V2
1:17: Date – V3
1:37: Date – V4
2:30: Day – V5
3:21: Night – V1
3:50: Night – V2
4:36: Night – V3
5:31: Night – V4
The actual lyrics of the main theme that Genshin Impact players never hear in the live version of the game happen in the Night – V3 version, which starts at 4:36 in the YouTube video above. These lyrics were sung in traditional Chinese, which Yu-Peng Chen, the composer of the song, later shared roughly translating as follows:
“In the end, I decided to remove the lyrics, because they didn’t sound very good and had inconsistent details. Instead, I tried changing the “ah” to a softer “ooh” in female vocals. The deeper, more stable sound adds an air of holiness to the grace of previous versions, matching the visuals of the night-time login screen perfectly.”
The Day – V5 and Night – V4 tracks are the ones that Genshin Impact players most easily recognize and love since they played in the official version of the game.

On June 15, 2022, Ubatcha – a famous and reputable leaker in the Genshin Impact community uploaded a piece of music with unused lyrics. Although it’s been almost two years, this particular video has attracted more views than the previous one. However, that’s because this version is not listed compared to the one found on Genshin Impact’s official YouTube channel.
Whether this unused main theme will be reused in future Genshin Impact updates remains to be seen. It’s a well-received song, but it will likely never appear on the login screen compared to the main theme tracks players hear today.
