First of all, I know this isn't Classical. My deepest apologies but the "Classical" section is where I belong, it just doesn't seem right to put my music elsewhere. I may stick it in the "Pop" section later... what are your feelings on this?

I would like to thank Bad_Man_Incorporated for his considerable guitar solo contribution, I can always count on him to add that extra brilliance to any piece. Thank you bud.

Here are the Lyrics my friends. I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed making it. I've never spend so much time on a piece. But it was worth it.

Remember back when you were young
The day was always new
and so much was left undone

Back when boys and girls held hands
Sand castles in the sands
Don't you remember... awoohoo

Folded love notes in the park
Sneak out when it was dark
This was our freedom

After school in every play
Back then we'd sieze the day
Do you remember

And here lies the innocence
Of times past
Oh so long ago

I need something
Even more than
I have needed
Once before
My Childhood

Make believe
In far off lands
We'd make sand castles
in the sands
In Childhood

Maybe we've got it all wrong
And we knew love, all along
The heart of a child is so pure
Now when we say I love you
We'd better be sure

And make your experiences last
Or spend the rest of your life
Remembering the Past

(Bad_Man_Incorporated's Guitar solo)

From beauty of that first kiss
Without knowing just what love is
A Fascination

Without every knowing why
We could simply close our eyes
and we could fly

I need something
Even more than
I have needed
Once before
My Childhood

(I could fly)

Make believe (I could Fly)
In far off lands
We'd make sand castles
in the sands
In Childhood
(I could Fly)

I can see myself dreaming
I find strength in believing
That I haven't wasted any time

Close your eyes and imagine
Feel Strong in your passion
Leave your troubles and your pain behind

this is just amazing

Was not expecting this

Well i was not expecting this, and i was for sure not expecting the "VOCALS" to come in so soon and strong, but i really love this tune the voclas are great very good quality and you have a sort of build up as you get more into the song, and the words are very fitting with the sound, so really nice job on this some good quality and so-on, As for improving tips, i think you have a solid piece here and dosent need any other additions or changes, nice work regardless.

so you have a high quality sound here great vocals, top notch and doesnt need any changes.

i listen to this song for a long time.
its awesome and it keeps me going when im feeling down.
keep it up!
