These past 3 or so months have been hell on Earth for me. Just anything that could possibly go wrong, went wrong. It was easily the hardest year of my life. But, many months ago I started writing this song and it was extremely cheery and I was really making a ton of progress and then I hit a brick wall creatively and it sat untouched, and I was so upset these past few months I couldnt bring myself to finish it and I almost got tired of working on it and I just wanted it to fucking be done already. But today I got the motivation to pull it together just a little bit and finish it off especially near the end of the song which is EXTREMELY cheery like it'll give you a cavity its so sweet and it really cheered me up and kind of reminded me that even though my depression is in full force right now, it doesnt have to be like that forever. Its temporary and The Sun Will Come Back. And that things will get better eventually. I dont know when or how but eventually things will get better, they wont be how they used to be and thats a shame but it will get better EVENTUALLY. And you can be happy again. At least for a little while. I dunno, thats what I took away from it.

This song uses a percussion sequence in Nexus that I never explored and really added to the synthwave-ish feeling to it. I used a bass ive never used before and paired it with what I believe to be a mandolin and but a TON of chorus giving it a really warbly feeling to kinda add to the magical and otherworldliness of it. Then I added some BIG FAT chord progression to get the maximum amount of emotional response from a listener especially near the end and then capped it all off with a teeny bit of glockenspiel to give it some twinkle.
