Hi y'all! This is the final tune of the album. I'd like to thank you all for following me on this journey (no pun intended). This tune is a re-tuning of one of my first tunes here on Newgrounds and I've turned it into a bit of an orchestral pop tune. I hope you enjoy listening to what I have created here. I don't have much else to say except thank you for the incredible support over the past couple of months. I will be posting new music starting next Monday, so I hope you stay tuned for that! If you want updates on my music stuff I would heavily recommend you follow me on these things:

Here are the lyrics for those who care:

One day I woke up   realized this was real

Someday be I’ll far away from here

The destination is only as good as the journey there, but who really cares?

I’ll be goin down  these roads to see you there save me a coffee and a chair 

Someday I’ll wish that I’ll do somethin different and I won’t know how to stop this thinkin’

All of these beautiful things that I know now

Sometimes life can change from to and fro

when things said stop you said go

Looking back it and was  great

But it’s time for things to change

 It’s time for me to let go

take the trail of passing time

and it feels a little familiar

Hopefully I won’t fall to the ground, at ease

This isn’t a goodbye

Not even a little farewell

it may seem a little familiar

Hopefully I won’t fall to the ground, at ease

You were all I needed

I love your voice! This is what I call "Traveling Music", the kind of stuff you throw on your car stereo and hit the road to, and not just because it's called "Journey". lol


Hey I love this! Has a really calm and nostalgic feeling. I loved your whole album and really enjoyed listening to it! Thanks for all your hard work!

Yo man. My favorite of them that I've heard. The mix is so incredibly wide. I know that won't be everyone's thing, but that is my cup of tea. Such great panning choices (imo). Also, stylistically, you remind me so much of LCD Sound System. He's much more electronically driven, but I can hear a lot of inspiration (maybe?).

Anyway, grand job man. I could hear a few things I would have done different stylistically, but I can also hear things that you've done that I wouldn't have thought of. Very creative, I hope this gets the love it deserves, and again, incredible mix.

TeraVex responds:

Thank you so much for the incredibly kind words! This tune was a big time sink mostly because I scored out all of the parts individually. I’m actually thinking about framing it just because of how it looks lol... but I enjoyed the process of making this! I’m really glad you enjoyed it! I do listen to a bit of LCD Sound System so that may be where some of it comes from! Thank you again for the review!
