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)



All I can say is wow....Im stunned. this is really good. Also it sucks that I don't live in Kamloops anymore so I could shake your hand and say what an exquisite piece you have created.

I keep dreaming about some girl I've never seen, yet she keeps appearing in my dreams. Ironic that you release this now.

As always, very well done, Dan. I can't get enough of your music. It's always so nice to hear your music incorporating piano in every genre you've worked with. Music these days doesn't have enough piano.

Excellent Song!

You are a natural.
Keep up the good work.
Please make more lyrical masterpiece.

Lovely peace

Love it like anything

Do I have to say it?.. Amazing..

hey Daniel!
It's a great song again.. You can stick to lyrics if you want, I'm sure lots of 'newgrounders' will think the same ^^
I must say the new software sounds amazing again, altough it's just an aid since you're the one creating the music.
I've read in one of the comments that you even did the drums on the piano? That really isn't easy since there isn't really a logic in the keys/drum sounds :D

Oh, btw. I discovered you on Ilike some time ago, but since I didn't really know you back then, I decided not to leave a comment..

And I've got some good news for me too, I've finished my first little song. :)
it's just a test.. approximatly 50 seconds.. But I intend to make something longer with the same melody. I can really say it was thanks to you that I started making music. Thank you..
I'll be eagerly awaiting your next song..
