I finally finished it! After 3 days of work, I am finally calling this song done!

I won't lie... I am absolutely in love with this song. This is the first song I am truly happy with that I created on my own. And I've been screwin around with music creation since around 1999. So, I hope everyone who listens to this enjoys it as much as I do.

There is no real story to the song, just a sort of theme. The theme is of course regret. The way I built it has a timeline that goes Present, to Past and then back to Present again. With any luck, people will be able to hear the timeline within the song itself.

I'm also interested in hearing the scenarios that people think of when they hear this song. My partner Josh (kelwynshade) thought up the scenario of a king that had just lost a war and was staring down at his destroyed city with it's dying or dead inhabitants lying in the streets. To me, things like that give the song more character and make it that much more enjoyable, so feel free to post what you see when you hear this!

I've talked enough, so lastly I just want to thank Josh for helping me find some good percussion to throw into the song, it really made a difference, and thanks to my friends that put up with me nagging them for their thoughts on the song in general, lol.

Also... if you like this song... go check out Josh's (kelwynshade) song Path of Memories. It was a big influence for me when I made this.

And I'm out!


EDIT: holy crap! best of the week?! wow, there's an honor i never expected to get, lol. Well thanks to everyone again who pushed me to actually finish a song, and thanks to everyone who took the time to review and offered their constructive criticism!


the story as i C it

a soldier sits near his fallen comrade, only just shot seconds ago, he's still breathing, but is fading in and out of conciousness. The first soldier tries to tell him that he was his best friend, since they've known each other since they were 9 & 10 years old. the injured soldier closes his eyes, and dies... forcing away the tears, the first soldier feels adrenaline rush through his veins, and begins fighting as if the fate of the world rested on his shoulders...
the reason this simple army man made a difference?
when the enemy began to retreat, he kept fighting.
when he was shot in the arm, he kept fighting.
when the enemy was completely obliterated, he looked around...
he was the only soldier left in sight, his comrades had run away while he was with his dying friend.

this is what i see when i hear this song

I don't know what to say about this one man

except to tell you to keep coming up with more great pieces like this. Instant fav. Now if you'll excuse me, I to go face up to some regrets of my own. Namely those concerning my late aunt. Damn, I miss her.

Simply amazing

Amazing. This song makes me think much of someone who did something horrible with their life, like an assasin or something, and lost someone they loved very much, the person that made him/her feel human. Very nice, man. I liked it a lot.

i love it the most
