I've allowed downloads on this song. Please, for the love of sanity, don't distribute the file. Distribute the link. If you distribute the file to people, that gives way for source confusion and misuse. Also, if you'd credit me if you put it in anything like a game or a movie, that'd be well appreciated. Thank you!

Tiny bit late for the every-other-day schedule I've been trying for. Unfortunately, today was a pretty depressive day for me. Dinner with my parents helped me feel better, though, so I was able to finish this up and post it!

I had a hell of a time finding good handpan samples for this, but I think I really like the ones I found.

Rate this, please! I wanna know how I did. Descriptions too; Even the smallest description alongside your rating goes a very long way.

If you find something wrong with the mix, do let me know. Feedback is welcome!
