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)

That performance was mind blowing,
The piano was amazing,
The vocals were brillant,
Thats all I'm left for words!

I listened to this song 15x

It's not really my style but I was able to sit through it endlessly on repeat for at least 10-15 plays. Good job!

The best kind is the kind you can't help =)

I made the mistake of not checking you page for a while! I see you have been countinueing right along! Your music is beautiful as always Dan, and you have gotten A LOT better at singing actually since sand castles...well at least more confident singing =).
This is a beautiful 'love' song that gets the same point without the stereo typical lyrics...this is very creative (let's be honest, you used the word "zelotry" in a love song, I cannot refrain my applause anly further).

Also, you percussive work is nice, I like the almost taiko like drums playing on like a heartbeat.

Hope to hear from you sometime =)
