Tears of Remorse

I have been struggling to compose a sad song for several days. With the theme of the current MAC being Sorrowed Tears, I had to come up with something fitting. Yet I've had no inspiration. I began to write one song, but I could not find a way to get past the intro. I had given up any hope, and simply submitted an old work.

Tonight, however, I was stricken with sudden inspiration. I began to ponder my life, my decisions, etc. Shortly thereafter, I also watched part of Spider Man 3. Without spoiling the movie, a certain sad point in the story was accompanied by some mournful music, and it gave me shivers. I HAD to write a song. I ran upstairs to the computer and got to work. 45 minutes later, this is the result.

This song does not represent simple sadness, nor regret, nor bitterness. I does not represent the death of a loved one or the emotions that such brings. What this song represents is guilt and true sorrow. It is the feeling you get when you realized that you hurt the person you loved most; that you made a huge mistake and now have to bear to burden of your actions. It represents the consequences of your greatest sins. It represents true remorse for your actions.

I truly hope you feel the sheer emotion of this song. It came from my heart, and expresses better than any words what I have felt recently.



Wow... just wow! This song makes me sad. But it's so beatiful! Really i dont know what to say but great!

Sweet. Thank Alex!

I love this song. It indeed tells a story but the one you wrote is the only one worth telling. The music flowed well and my fingers moved across the keys to write. not very many songs do that. You have a gift.

It's amazing how music can inspire stories. I love to turn off the lights, turn on great music and let my imagination run free. In a way, it really makes me feel alive.

Thanks for taking the time leave your comment. :)

BlazingDragon responds:

I've moved several times in my life and have experienced the feeling of losing close friends. I also had two grandparents die recently, and my remaining grandmother was told she may have less than a year to live. So I empathize with your pain. :(

Like you said, it can be bittersweet looking back to the past, but I try to keep it in perspective. I like this quote about it:

"Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future."
-Audrey Hepburn

Thank you for the review. :)

It's a strange and wonderful thing, the power of music. The way that simple sounds, when arranged correctly, can brighten our moods, give us strength, or bring us to tears is mysterious. This song plays on that perfectly, invoking a sense of deep sadness and remorse with no clear source except what our own minds put together.

BlazingDragon responds:

That was beautifully articulated my friend. I can't claim to understand why music has such power, but I've experienced it time and again. More than words, it serves as a clear vehicle for pure emotion. That's why I love to compose. :)

Thank you!
