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


Time is running like sand through the hands right?

I'm no good when it comes to write reviews, I just like to tell the people how I felt when listening to their music.

It moved me.

Though I think that the voic should be more intens at the corus parts. But otherwise I like the calmness wich it is sung with. This gives me the feeling that everything is just as good as it is now and it fills me with happiness. I adore the deep voic at the very end of the song. It sounds so beautiful. Does it symbolize the growing up and growing out of the Childhood? It seems so to me.

Its a shame that you haven't been noticed yet. (Or have you? Maybe i just missed that point.)

Keep up the great work!

Lovely song. I am so glad I stumbled across this song. I've downloaded it and must say, please create more things like this. The song is quite touching in my opinion and you WILL go far if you keep it up like this

Absolutely fabulous. The first song of yours I heard was As if the Night Is Gone, through the game Clear Vision II. I really liked that song, but only recently did I stumble across Newgrounds and discover that you had written that song. This song was the next one I listened to, and it blew me away.
You definitely have talent. For any of those who think your vocals aren't good, it's just not true. However, you may need to work a little bit on breathing so you can make it strong through each segment. As a composer who started out with piano, I find this a great piece. This is just the kind of work that I aim to write. Keep up the good work.
On a different note, you seem to believe that your music wouldn't make it in the general market. You are right about this, at least in mainstream music. However, some of your work WOULD make for good movie music, and I believe you have the ability to write a solid choral piece. Please consider it; I'd love to hear how you would work with this spectrum of music. Once again, great job, and keep going!
