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

A mountain of regret

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

A tower of regret

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.

No words to discribe how touching this song is...

This is quite possibly the most beautiful song I've ever heard, you have true talent and if anyone says otherwise... then God forsake them.

Burdening my Mind

I feel as if there is a hidden inspiration behind this piece. I have sat here some forty minutes, straining to pick out the individual notes, dividing the lyrics into words and patterns of speech, struggling to hear miniscule marks in both your wonderful vocalization and in the haunting piano keys. Music strikes me down deep, and some pieces truly bring things to mind. For me, it reflects a more personal idea, one I shall neglect to state.

I cannot fathom what sort of story might be behind some music (Lady Gaga, I'm looking at you...), but I believe I have an opinion.

"...In despair, unknown... There he lays, a burden to himself..."
I will not forget this song soon. The damage has been done. I am again altered...

i actually agree with lordsthief

great song, but i listened to this twice and thought about the change to the lyrics, and it is justified, i feel it would make just just a bit better.
great song, lots of emotion, really reminds me of the legend of jason vorhease.

you also have a very powerful voice.
use it well.
