Story and Music by Steampianist


Lyrics:


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?


from

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


suddenly

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

It's amazing how the romantic and sweet feel slowly turns into a dark and unsettling ambience. The story is strong and all of it is great. Keep it up!

Do Nyarlothotep next
