Last week my best friend from high school died in a car crash. She was the funniest person i knew, so freaking random and intense, I have so many memories of skipping class with her and laughing at crap on computers, having those 'deep' conversations in the hallways, staying in touch after school and going to comedy shows and such.

I decided to upload it regardless of the risk of dickhead trolls because I want whoever will listen, to know that she was awesome.

This is likely one of the worst vocal performances you will ever hear, It took a fair few takes to get something at least average, you'll have to excuse the over-emotionality (new word) as i wrote and recorded it mere hours after i heard the horrible news. It's how i deal with crap.

i also made a video for this song before i uploaded it to newgrounds, so if you wanted to see it, it's here: (delete the 'space' after the ".com/")

This song hit me in the feels. I'd be inconsolable if I lost my best friend. Your raw emotion shines through and adds to the authenticity. I know Alex would be proud of you and everything you've achieved in your life.

What a nice and wonderful song this is! I have no idea why you said this would be one of the worst vocal performances I would ever hear. Hey, I've heard my own! It's great that you made an original song for this. I think it's original at least. It shows how creative you are.

I understand how you've made so many things on this website in so many categories. The instrumentals are wonderful too. I think the images shown as the song plays are always changing. It's nothing to do with you, it's just great to look at. I hope we all learn to raise our voice.

You sang with your heart Jazza...
regardless of the pitch or the tone..when you sing with your heart...it is never a 'bad' performance.

I am sorry about your friend...I know what it's like to lose someone close.

A great song, one worthy of your friend's memory.


Regardless of what you think your voice sounded like, in this recording, if it had been any more "perfect" you probably wouldn't have sounded quite so sincere. The sadness deep in your voice could be heard through the entire song, and gives it so much more depth and emotional bondage to the listener. You did a wonderful job and it is a true honor to the memory of your friend. I'm sorry for your loss.

It's a good song.

Some lyrics don't rhyme, but does it matter? So sorry man. You lost someone so close... The music is good. I know you just did it in a rush or something, so you're super good since your voice here sounds good. Just sad...
