It was just another one of those slow going Saturdays when I felt I should write something simple, something to help me relax. I promise you guys that I do have something much more complex that I'm trying to finish. However, it's music like this that will always be a part of me, and a part that I have to express somehow every now and then.

This was the first song I ever listened to on here, back before I even had an account. I just picked something at random from the portal listing for that day, as I recall.

It takes me back to being a kid when I didn't even understand the feelings this song made me feel.

It also kind of reminds me of the progression of my adult life so far -- the opening notes melancholy and representative of my mental state coming into adulthood, the loneliness and isolation I'd brought on myself as it were. The transition to the more upbeat segment, analogous to my decision to finally make a big change and my move down to where I could actually get a job in my preferred field, the song building more and more momentum after that like what I'm doing now.

Thank you for reminding me, in more than one way, of how far I've come. How far I still have yet to go.

My brother introduce me to this song when I was around 10yrs old. I was such a carefree kid back then. WIth no worries or responsibilities.
Life was simple.
7 years has passed, and I wished that I can be a kid a bit longer.
This song made me cry.

Playing this at low volume for it to be embedded into my subconscious. wut am I doing.

This song is the best I've ever heard.
The emotion it channels through its notes.. The feeling you get, the feeling where it makes you get up and realize that there is someone in the world that cares about you. Every time I listen to this song, I want to cry. There isn't just sadness and failure in the world. Somewhere out there is the bright light of hope.

I love the way this piece evolves. The beginning sounds so lonely or isolated, but gradually becomes more optimistic with time.
