I was saving this song for release on an album, but I still don't know if I'm going to do that ever.

This is an original I wrote maybe about a year ago. It's taken me this long to get it just right. It's also probably the most personal thing I've ever composed. So please... LVR <3

P.S. Before the hellstorm of "WTF Category" hits, I would consider this piece "New Age." There is no New Age category on Newgrounds. I went with the closest match.

Lyrics:
Lyrics:
11 years, 4 months, 2 days
Look what you've done to me
In such a short time.
But I won't give in.
I won't let you win.
Let the water seep in.
Watch the flame inside my heart
Beat the rain falling on my skin

Help me come clean
Somebody please.
I'm in a skin so think I can barely breathe
Underneath the weight of a heart that's so cold
It can't even beat.
Tell me where do you run
When every road leads you back
Where you begun
And every face holds a permanent trace
Of what you could have been
Watch the colors fade
Into an apathetic shade of grey
Where the sunsets
While it rises and yet there's nothing left

But I won't give in
I won't let you win
Let the water seep in
Watch the flame inside my heart
Beat the rain falling on my skin

There's a strength inside of me
Something you could not foresee
Tear me down 'till there's nothing
And I'll still be who I will be

Stay strong. With a heart like yours, you can do it. This is unlike anything I've eve heard to be honest. You really do put a piece of yourself into each piece.


VGSongbird responds:

I try. Music is not just for the audience, it's for the composer ^_^
Thank you for listening.

I started crying. I wasn't ready for the heart jerking truth of what I have done for a long time. Although if this was 13 years. I would have started laughing because this song would have been turned into a homestuck song without you knowing. XD (And I wouldn't be the one to do it, mind you.)

But I love it anyway, and I think this is how many artists in the world feel.


VGSongbird responds:

I'm not sure I understand your full meaning here, but I do appreciate the review ^_^
