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

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 ^_^
