It's been forever since I've uploaded anything!

Here's a song cover that I did last year with the help of Mihai (re-created the instrumental for me), Y Chang (who helped with editing), and my buddy Merr who wrote the lyrics! I really loved Cowboy Bebop and I especially loved this song. Thanks a bunch to Natalie H. for providing the harmonies for the backup. :)

Lyrics:

Too late to let you know, what you mean to me
If I cried I'd only make you believe I was happy
I've got to let you go, and my heart, it aches
But it's worth it, 'cause I swear to god, you're a mistake

Know there could be a day, when the pain will fade
But a part of me is lookin' for you, back on yesterday
I've got to get away, 'cause my heart, it burns
And I know if I keep stickin' around, I won't ever learn

Don't wanna cry
'Cause, baby, I
Can feel freedom when they play

The real folk blues
I need the pain
My unhappiness is proof I'm not insane
'Cause when I'm close to you
I swear, I could die
Need to live my life, yeah, live like I'm alive
And it's a lonely road
Good luck and goodbye

This is so nostalgic, I got instant goosebumps. Love it!

COWBOY BEBOP! Beautiful english version ^.^ Gorgeous voice!

This may have the highest rating of anything I've seen in the audio portal. 4.71! That's crazy! I really do feel bad because I don't give this the full score. I mean, I guess I'm just not into folk blues. It's still a great song.

I had no idea this would have lyrics. It might have had a little less chorus at the beginning. This is still a great voice. Is that really yours? You certainly know how to capture the spirit of the blues and congrats on being Egoraptor's favorite song!

Great tune, Just like the old days.

Hits real close to home for some reason. Makes my heart ache.
