Full title: "Someday I'll Show You a Beautiful World"

This is a very strange love song. Normally, when you think of love songs, they're cheerful, often very pretty, and sometimes include the occasional gushy lyrics, amirite? This is repetitive, long (the full version is sixteen minutes long) and tiresome. No fun here.

There is a meaning behind this song, though. Sometimes, there things in the world that beat you up and bring you down to the point of tears. There's a breaking point, and when I see people I love reach that point... this song is supposed to imitate my feelings. I want to take them somewhere they don't have to feel the pain anymore, somewhere they can once again see the stars...

Anyway. If you don't like the song, it doesn't matter to me. It's a very personal piece to me, probably the most emotional one I've written.

After all that rambling, I hope you enjoy this!


VERY Nice!

It's not often that I come across songs like this on Newgrounds.

Though the melody is repetitive, it is soft and yet moving enough to keep you entranced throughout the entirety of the song, just like good ambient should do.

I could definitely see this playing in an experimental animation or movie...

Raw emotion

Wow.. so much emotion in this piece. You can feel the pain this person might feel and while being haunting and sad it delivers a slight redemption, but once again falls into the dark, whatever that may be.

I don't know if I'm making much sense at all.. but just know I truely love this piece.
The simplicity of it is what made it so great and it told a story all in itself.

Great music man.

Wow... yeah, I definitely get what you're saying, I'm really glad you felt the piece that way, because as someone who normally just writes music for the sake of it, I felt that I wanted this to stand for something important and emotional...

It gives a main idea and lets the mind wander... that's why I like ambient music. There aren't concrete themes to fill your head like a song with lyrics might. It's good music to contemplate things to.

Thank you so much for the review, I'm really glad it meant something to you.

As ambient as it can be

What the...? I'm quite sure I started listening to the song, but then I suddenly woke up and the song was over. lol

This sure is perfect ambient music! Great work :D
