well, this little song was made because looking over the past few years I have not liked what I've been through... lately things are a little better, but something had brought my attention straight to these things... So depressed with the few rays of happiness that broke through the emptiness that let me know that it wasn't all over yet.

- Lyrics: There are none, but I'd love it if someone could at least write some for me. I can't sing for my life, nor can I write lyrics, but believe such a beautiful song deserves lyrics.

This piece starts a little too quietly, but finished strongly, so while I find myself fiddling with the volume control throughout, to get the balance right, I found myself enjoying the piece of music wholeheartedly. It's more modern classical, than the traditional, with some of the electronica sounds and effects added as an afterthought. Did you play the piano yourself?

Lyrics would be nice - I'm trying to decide whether or not to have it as the backing for a poem, or whether someone should be singing.

This field of green,
It lies before me.
Stretching out and away,
Beyond my vision.

What lies behind,
It doesn't matter.
I cannot change that,
Any more than you.

All I know,
Is that one step.
Takes me somewhere better;
Put your best foot forward.

A little off the cuff poem for you. Probably not the best I've ever written, but it's got a little significance for me at the moment. Still, that said, this piece needs to have the early volume sorted, to give a better balance and perhaps a bit more impetus. I'd suggest adding some strings in the background, as that would work really well, complimenting the piano that you've created so far.

Yes, I did play piano myself. The volume was supposed to be like that, and I did in fact only make the song in a few hours, but I might be able to add strings, I'll see what I can do.

Very nice! Sorry for the bad things you've been going through. At least you expressed it with a nice beautiful song. =)

lantaren responds:

thank you c: all this support means much to me.

This is very comforting to listen to and very easy on the ears which is just lovely. The way that this builds is very well done. this was very aptly named as I can sense that sort of thoughtfulness as I listen to this, causing me to even go into my own thoughts and think about varied things in my own life. I really do like this, even without the lyrics. Lyrics could be an interesting addition to the song if you are able to find some, I am not really the Lyrical type (Sad for me), but I am sure that you could find something that would work well with this. Keep up the good work.

lantaren responds:

Thank you! I love all this positive reactions I'm getting! I think where I've gone wrong with my other music is that I've just been over complicating everything! c: anyway, thank you. it really does mean a lot to me ^-^ you can expect more where this came from in the future.

Beautiful. I love the arrangement. Also like your reverbs, which I've seen a lot of on pianos but less so where it actually adds something. Pretty good overall.

lantaren responds:

thank you, technically it's a delay, but there is also slight reverb on the piano it's self. I think this is probably my most beautiful song being that I didn't throw in a break beat and any electronic sounds at all.
