These Lonely Walls ft. Darnell (RealFaction)

Author Comments

Hey everyone. Troisnyx writing here.

Borrowing inspiration from power ballads, French pop and K-pop slow numbers, I wrote this for the Newgrounds Audio Portal 15th Anniversary Audio Drama (more like, now, the NGAP Audio Drama at this rate). @RealFaction is the voice, both spoken and sung, of Newgrounds' very own Darnell!

I wrote the song and the lyrics myself. The song was prompted by the various scriptwriters of the Audio Drama project, who put in a cue for a song expressing Darnell's hopes and dreams as far as his music is concerned. The primary names I could get were @ekublai and @SourJovis, who were among the numerous scriptwriters enlisted. What they did basically drew out the song from me. Now that it's done, I've decided, with counsel from the directors of the project, to release it as a taste of what's to come. May it be the first of a few.

Those song lyrics are also quite telling of *my own* longings as far as my music is concerned. I imagine if I were singing it for myself, there'd be just as much gravitas -- but I think this is a song whose deep longings are shared by many Newgrounds musicians who yearn to do more than sing to their lonely walls.

The artwork is a prototype of a sketch I had in mind featuring Pico, Nene, Darnell and A-Bot. I made an attempt on FireAlpaca back in the day. Only Darnell was anywhere near completion.

By the way: Act 1 of the Audio Drama is nearly finished, and we wouldn't mind a few more hands on deck to get it up and running! We mainly need sound FX artists and scriptwriters. Please PM me, AceMantra or Whirlguy if you're interested / like what you hear!

LYRICS:

Hey.
I yearn for you to hear me
singing to these lonely walls.
I can't help that something's missing,
I can't ignore it when the music calls.

Soon,
you'll hear me for the first time,
casting off my sorry shell.
I won't hide behind the screen no more,
I have so many tales to tell:

One day, we will share our stories.
One day, we'll touch each other's hearts.
And when that day comes we will win the world over,
with songs arising deep within our souls.

One day, we will teach our friends,
we'll hand down what we already know.
But until that day comes, I'll be waiting in the shadows,
singing to these lonely walls.

Hey.
I yearn one day for someone
to see me as I am inside.
I'm a soul in need of friendship,
I need someone in whom I can confide.

Hey,
I'm dreaming of someplace where
I can share my very soul,
breaking shackles with my music,
running fast and free from all control:

One day, I will share my story.
One day, I'll touch so many hearts.
And when that day comes, I will win the world over,
with songs arising deep within my soul.

One day, I'll make so many friends,
and I won't be lonely anymore.
But until that day comes, I'll be waiting in the shadows,
singing to these lonely walls.

Great song. Very well sung. Full of emotion. Those synthesizer pad are very nice, though sometimes a little overbearing. Good to hear the script inspired you. I'm sure this song in turn inspires the scriptwriters as wel, to continue finishing the next episodes. I'm really exited to hear the first episode of the audio drama.

this is beautiful - good job :)
