This is the full version, as I hoped to finish it. The original I put up was only approximately 40 seconds long! XD

I expanded upon the piano solo a bit, added strings, considerable length, some drums, a harp, and some other goodies...

With the percussion being what it is in the song, I don't think I could have justified it as classical, so I went ahead and put it in the ambient.

Glad to finally listen to some new stuff from you!! :D

when i listened to the demo of this song the first thing i thought was this could use some strings, and well you did a good job with them. I also enjoyed the drums which were unexpected and a bit funky (but in a good way)

Tamadrum responds:


well.. erm

I can't really compare to the guy's below review xP

but I thought this piece was destined to become great ever since I heard the demo for the collab

well done - and never stop composing

Tamadrum responds:

Wow, Thanks a million zero... even if your review isn't 50 million words long like tyler's.

Never stop composing yourself! :)

... wow

oh my tamadrum how you have grown, this piece... is absolutely stunning. I had tears from the beginning and oh my gosh the things you have given me with this is absolutely amazing. im listening to this over and over again because it is truly masterfully done. I honestly dont think ive heard a better piece on newgrounds.

this is what you have allowed me to see ;D i hope you like it

i see a young man. all alone in the rain. he is stearing at his hands.. their empty but hes looking at them all the same. his own tears mingle with the rain running down his face. Slowly (with the strings) he looks up into the sky. and as the drums beat in a cry tears from his lips. Something happened to him. or he caused something to happen i dont truly know yet. As the drums pick up he starts to walk across this field he is in, to where the love of his life is laying, felled from some terrible insident. As the young man kneels one last time. His thoughts reaturn to home. and the amazing time he was able to have with this women now dead at his feet. As everything fades out and piano fades in he falls to the ground. gripping his fallen wife in his arms. then theres the fade out.

tamadrumi have seen many different scenarios with this piece, but this one stuck with me the most. You have so much raw emotion in this song its gripping from the first note. And i must say im glad i have been gone as long as i have. your music is absolutely stunning, ive forgotten its luster. Tamadrum somewhere within you lies a master of your artform, and sometimes, you take hold of your inner being and put it into your music. and when that happens. the result is speachless, keep up the amazing work and one day you will be on top of the world. Its been an honor to review your music.

ps. thanks to hours of your music, i got outa my writing block quite a while ago and the pages are FLOWING now. thank you so much yet again :D

Tamadrum responds:

Well, I'm glad to hear that your writer's block is finally over ty... And once again, I am going to have to give a completely unsatisfactory reply to your humongous review...

Your scenario for this song is VERY sad, I found myself mellowed out from the hyper mood I had before reading it. But this is not a bad thing in any way, shape, or form...

I hope your writing endeavors go well... seeing all the stories you've left on your reviews. :)
