A cute bitter sweet song dedicated to those who does not have the courage to confess their feelings to the ones they admire :(

Story and Music by Steampianist


i held the letter in my shaking hands

the ones you touched when you ran past

me on the way to class

"we're late"

you said

"come run with me"

but crumpled up and thrown away

i tore apart my heart today

just ripped to shreds, you saw me then

"its late"

you said

"come walk with me"

moonlight falls upon my windowsill

i watch the world go by

in time

can you save me from my dreams?


whispers of

the stars aligned

it rises up

and breaks the tide

to prophecies

and valentines

to waking up

in the end times

my god its crushing me

tangled round my body like countless chains

black seas split by twisted spires

holding my eyes open, i'm so tired

all my nightmares

they never change but

i'll think of you tonight

i snap awake, another day

another sleepless night to face alone

without you by my side

why cant you just

why cant you just be mine

but once again

we're only friends

not even friends, it's just pretend

but in my head's not good enough

today, i thought

i'll make you mine

sunlight falls upon your perfect smile

i saw you from afar

who's she?

why's your hand on her cheek?

you broke my heart

with a secret kiss

my pillows stained

with teardrops

the voices come

but louder now

with words i do not remember

my god it's crushing me

tangled round my body like countless chains

black seas split by twisted spires

holding my eyes open i'm so tired

and all my nightmares they never change but

i'm wide awake tonight


the routine breaks

the whispers come

and fade away

two silhouettes

their shadows tall

you and i

together after all

my god its you and I

dancing on the air like new years flames

under sickly green moonlight

i can see us smiling in the sky

my god i now believe

the coming of the old one sets me free

black seas split by ryleh spires

voices entwined together like a choir

all my nightmares they never change but

i'll think of you tonight

happy (VERY LATE) valentines day ^_^ i love eldritch stuff and i love romance

I LOVE this song. When I've heard it for the first time I though "Oh, it must be a love ballad", and then the chorus catch me by surprise with that Lovecraftian theme. It's a very good song, and the parts with the synth/keyboard are excellent! Keep up the good tunes! :)

Es mas triste cuando lees la letra de la cancion...

Genialsaso 🤩🤩🤩🤩

I truly love this whole piece. That chorus is empowering, tragic and sombre all at once
