I was saving this song for release on an album, but I still don't know if I'm going to do that ever.

This is an original I wrote maybe about a year ago. It's taken me this long to get it just right. It's also probably the most personal thing I've ever composed. So please... LVR <3

P.S. Before the hellstorm of "WTF Category" hits, I would consider this piece "New Age." There is no New Age category on Newgrounds. I went with the closest match.

11 years, 4 months, 2 days
Look what you've done to me
In such a short time.
But I won't give in.
I won't let you win.
Let the water seep in.
Watch the flame inside my heart
Beat the rain falling on my skin

Help me come clean
Somebody please.
I'm in a skin so think I can barely breathe
Underneath the weight of a heart that's so cold
It can't even beat.
Tell me where do you run
When every road leads you back
Where you begun
And every face holds a permanent trace
Of what you could have been
Watch the colors fade
Into an apathetic shade of grey
Where the sunsets
While it rises and yet there's nothing left

But I won't give in
I won't let you win
Let the water seep in
Watch the flame inside my heart
Beat the rain falling on my skin

There's a strength inside of me
Something you could not foresee
Tear me down 'till there's nothing
And I'll still be who I will be

I am very sad to tell you that only until now I have discovered your music. You're incredibly talented! I wish you all the luck in making a name for yourself!
