Hello again newgrounds. I know I said I wouldn't be doing any lyricals pieces for a while, but I couldn't help this one. A lot of work went into this one, and I have little to say other than enjoy. I'd also like to make everyone aware of two things...

1. I'll be coming to Toronto May 31 - June 3 to meet with several artists from Newgrounds in a collaboration for my 50th submission. I will also be going to Kamloops and Calgary hopefully soon as well for the same reason. Be sure to PM me if you'd like to be a part of the tour.

2. A little heads up... one or two of you have found this all on your own, but a lot of my music is available on the facebook application "ILike". Just add the app to your page and search for the Artist "Daniel Stang", and you can find all my latest works to add to your page.

That should be everything... Now... here be the lyrics

-=Verse 1=-
Hide inside my head
Where i can't follow
Your just another Dream
That I'll never see

Gaze a crystal ball
To find it hollow
Can he know for sure
Just who you'll be

Girl in my dreams tonight
Won't you please come to life
I don't know who you are

Girl who choosen me
Torture and agony
All I can remember

Is when I wake
Your touch still lingers
On me

-=Verse 2=-
I can see you smiling
Through the curtains
Betray your secret
Guarded with zelotry

The power of your Capture
Isn't certain
The beauty of your grace
Is mystery

Maybe you are
My own torment
Changing right
Behind my eyes

(Back to Chorus)


It is obvious that those who put effort...

will know and often know that their effort shows and that talent is limitless.

I can definitely tell you've probably put much time and effort...tears and emotions...and plenty of nights staying up late.

Such is the life of an artist.

I'm glad you are performing...I would suggest not selling yourself short. Make an album because you love music...not money.

It's wonderful to see great things, and at access to one of the most popular flash and music websites to get people to truly know what you can do.

Good luck on all your future goals and aspirations of music.

Amazing :O

Wow.. This song deserves the weekly best that for sure. This song is amazingly well done. I remember you about a year ago or so i got one of your songs that was just piano. And it was amazing i remember thinking wow this artist should be professional! Now you have made lyrical pieces and there just as amazing as your piano pieces were! I registered a NG account just to leave a comment haha, very awesome song, fits my mood the lyrics go so well with the over all melody of this song. 10/10 mate.

And thanks for beign such a good artist and making such amazing songs!
