Written, sung, sequenced by yours truly.

I wrote this song all the way back in 2009, when I was feeling a lot of despair. Back then, I had regular access to a piano and I came up with this when improvising on it, when no one was home. (I didn't have lyrics then, but it didn't matter.) Around this time, I was listening to a lot of Mylene Farmer's songs, and I was partly inspired by what music she and composer Laurent Boutonnat did. The piano playing here was actually influenced by a particular song of theirs, Point de Suture.

These lyrics and vocals are basically me from three years ago -- my voice hasn't changed much -- and the instrumental was done as recently as yesterday (1 Aug '16). I decided to release it as it was, as an experiment, and to share whatever sadness I am going through.

Putting this under the Cinematic genre because that's probably the best fit I can find for this thing.

LYRICS:

I
The sun goes down
The western sky
Time passes by
Without a sound

II
The night is nigh
And silence falls
I cry alone
For someone to hear

CHORUS:
When stars appear
Let me never ever fear
No wind, nor rain, nor darkness
Can surpass me!

III
I stretch my hands
To feel around
And there I walk
Hoping for the light
