A song I made. There is no singing, only whistle noises instead. There are lyrics, though.
~~The whistle sound is a placeholder for when I record the singing~~

Made in FL Studio
Piano: FL Keys
Strings: Papelmedia Strings
Everything Else: SMG V2.01 Soundfont

Instrumental Version (Without Melody): http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/753759

Also I have no idea what genre this is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Lyrics:

For so long
I thought that I had nothing left
I thought that I was doomed I guessed
That I was gone
That I was wiped away from memories
And left to die with nobody
But then I turned around and saw you
Sitting on the ground alone like me

And for so long
I've been too terrified to even speak to
Terrified to even see you too
But then you spoke to me and listened to my
Stories of the galaxies
And you were like a star of hope to me
And I won't ever forget
Anything you've ever done for me

So I would take you to the edge of the solar system
To look up into the sky
And see the stars
That you can't see from behind the atmosphere
And I would take you to the end of the universe
Just to thank you for all of the time
You've given me here on the earth
Before I start to cry

Now I know
That memories like these weren't meant to be
Anything other than just happy dreams
Now everything is starting to become
A blurry mess
A banging drum
But I don't want to ever lose
These precious precious memories of you

So I'm not going anywhere
Without you I promise I swear
So if you're leaving then I'm leaving too
I've never seen a dying star
I'm glad it hasn't got that far
I just don't want to ever lose these precious happy memories of you

So I would take you to the edge of the solar system
To look up into the sky
And see the stars
That you can't see from behind the atmosphere
And I would take you to the end of the universe
Just to thank you for all of the time
You've given me here on the earth
Before I say goodbye

And I would never let you go on without me saying
The world's not as big as you think
And if it ever starts to let you down
I'll be here waiting
To take you to the end of the universe
And we'd look back into our past
And see the sad but happy memories
Drifting into space

(Violin Solo)

And I would take you to the end of the universe
To look up into the sky
And see the stars you can only see
From outside the Milky Way
We could fly away
Live another day
So what do you say?

You should've gotten someone to actually sing the lyrics. They're pretty good but there's no point to them being there.
Otherwise, 10/10.

Thanks! Maybe one day there will be singing. One day. Maybe. If i can manage to get a better microphone than a laptop or a phone :T
