Softly stirring silence
Somewhere something's hurting deeply
In despair, unknown
There he lays
A burden to himself

A mountain of regret
Inside...

Softly stirring silence
Somehow someone's suicidal
Thoughts of no return
There he stands
A burden to himself

A tower of regret
Inside...

So they're waiting for a sign
Hoping that their fears subside
Slowing stepping forward so
All they do is just let go -

Softly falling silence
Nothing to hold onto quickly try to turn around
Silhouettes of life
They reach the ground
Safe and sound.

Sound is good

So the sound and quality of this is really good and really pops off well you have some nice mixes in this too with a great energy about it so with all that said please do make more like this one

Sad yet beautiful song, it expresses a lot about some people who keep their emotions hidden inside. Great voice as well.

Well... umm... that’s sad... Beautiful piano, beautifully sung

Ok, now I am feeling sad. I guess I should've expected that when searching "sad" in the audio portal. :/

Yes the only one problem is that I can't download this...D: <3
