PostSubject: Music for your Character?   Fri May 23, 2008 8:43 pm

No i'm not asking you to compose a song, (but feel free to if you would like) this thread is for those of you who have any lyrics for/about/or pertaining to a character in Felarya. The afore mentioned character could be yours or some one else's (a dedication). I have seen very exemplary displays of verbal skills and some mighty craftsmanship with a pen (so to speak) on this site. I think you guys can come up with something if you haven't already.

I will probably shit out lyrics cause I write poems and songs alot...^^'

First one of mine...


Where are you Tonight?

Where are you tonight?
Why aren't you here in my arms?
Where are you tonight?
I thought we could look at the stars

But apparently
I was to blind to see
That you were using me
For your own selfish gain
And dillusion
Forced by illusion
Gave me the conclusion
That you actually cared

But you never did
And now I'm sick to my heart
I was just a broken kid
That you taped up and tore apart

Tore apart...
In this emptiness
I find no bliss
Only tragedy at my feet
I'm swallowed by lonliness
Death's bloody kiss
A disease that I cannot treat

So in this pit
This self denial
I've grown sick of it
The word you defile
This "love" that is supposed to exist
It festers and rots like a cyst
It is crude and tastes like piss
So some one, rid me of this


For Kevin L. Solaris (16) after his first time seeing Crisis from afar, knowing it could never be.

I guess you could say this pertains to anyone from the "doomed" era on Dobeniria in my story:


Dinner With A Gypsy - He Is Legend


*Guitar Solo/Intro*

Is there a place that we can go to teach the children not to grow?
Where lovers don't remember where they met,
And heartbreak is easy to forget?

Is there no love to speak of?
Is there no love to speak of?

I'm looking for a place, lookin' for a place;
I gotta find a new place to call home;
I'm looking for a place, lookin' for a place;
I gotta find a new place to call home.

There has to be a closer country,
Where love can live near me.
I've got to find it, because right now, I'm not seein' clearly!
There's someone knockin' on my door,
No one lives here anymore.
There's someone knockin' on my door,
No one lives here anymore.

Don't I know you?
You've got to believe me,
We met yesterday!

Don't I know you?
I don't believe
This bar is closing!

Don't I know you?
I don't live here anymore!
Don't I know you?!
I've gotta get out,
I've gotta get out,
I don't live here anymore!


Is there no love to speak of?
Is there no love to speak of?

I'm lookin' for a place, lookin' for a place;
I gotta find a new place to call home;
I'm lookin' for a place, lookin' for a place;
I gotta find a new place to call home!

Is there a place that we can go to teach the children not to grow?
Where lovers cannot remember where they met,
And heartbreak is easy to forget?

There has to be a closer country,
Where love can live near me.
I've got to find it because right now, I'm not seein' clearly!
There's someone knocking on my door,
No one lives here anymore!
There's someone knocking on my door,
No one lives here anymore!

There is no love...

*Guitar Solo/Outro*

wrote this about a week ago XP

Dorian's Song (naga battle hymn):

Farewell my love I leave you now
For battlefields unknown
But know my heart will be with you
No matter where I roam

Though forces dark tempt us apart
from you I shall not stray
And when my body lives no more,
My Love with you shall stay

Oh my dearest lady fair,
Do not forget my song
And if sorrow stains your heart
Do not be sad for long

For when you cry, the world does weep
And my soul shall not rest.
So remember as I sang to you,
Upon thy loving breast.

Another one for my Character.

Love with Death

Death crept up on me
But I did not waiver
I looked in her eyes to see
A gentle behavior
This magnificent woman
Coerced me to her bed
Pushed me in all of a sudden
But I knew I wasnít dead
Then this mistress tucked me in
As a mother does to a child
I realized she had always been with me through the thick and the thin
So I opened up to this demonic angel, to Death I reconciled

When I woke
She was sitting on my resting place
When I spoke
She wore a smile upon her face
As I sat up to welcome the day
She pushed me down with an embrace to say
ďDonít get up, please close your eyes.
I like to watch you sleep, you look so innocent.
Ignore the coffin, itís just a guise.
Iíve found myself a predicament.
Iím supposed to kill you.
But I donít want to.Ē
So I did as asked
I closed my eyes and found love at last
Though Iím afraid of what happens next
What ever it is Iím ready for this test.
For IÖ
Fell in love with Death.


Another...

Emotionally Blind

Have you ever got a splitting headache?
Wish you were asleep, knowing youíre awake
Life isnít a dream you can shape to your liking
Youíve got to explore, sail like a Viking
Guess my poems and songs are similar still
All this love and hate, itís made sick and ill

I cannot control my emotions
There are too few to guide
Hate is the strongest of potions
But still love resides at my side

I am north and south
Mental rabies, but I donít foam at the mouth
Everything is black and white, clear as day
But itís still never been more confusing anyway
Iíve got two ways to see things, two unlucky eyes
I canít shake the feeling that theyíll be my demise

You shouldnĎt underestimate
I speak the truth about what I hate
It isnít dislike or even a disposition
Itís a true choice of words, a final decision
I mean what I say and same goes for the other
When I love itís more then love like a brother
Itís a deep honest un-chosen choice
Something I know, but has never been voiced
I am over with my mental transgressions
My love and my hate, my only obsessions


Another...About my character's love for Xiao

Final Days

Respect the ones who dug their own graves
Only they know what time they can save
In the bloody days of the brave
A final good bye, a saluting wave

This is the first of many a some day
The beginning, premier matinee
Last days continue to scroll by
My head aches with all those who scream why

This is a fucking war for those who can only deny
The time for bitching is over, action is neigh
No prisoners to be taken
Beasts of hell, once awoken
Feet pounding the ground, a symphony of rage
The story of pain, page by page
All wind stops in the presence of five million strong
Since when has the blood of so many been wrong?
Never before did the angels cower in the clouds
Watching on a war like spectator crowds
The fight to begin in six days
Decides the fate of all your ways
Treasure this moment for the pleasure it brings
I will no longer carry wind on my wings

My love, I have but six days left
Free choice, to be bereft
But as I can say for but this, the end of all
ďI Love You Xiao!Ē will be my battle call

In six days and on the fifth night
The creatures will be stripped of all rite
Armies of countless damned will flood this ground
Upon this earth, ten million feet will pound
That is why, every day I spend with you is so important to me
Because I never know if I will live beyond day three
These words become a litany of all that I believe
For in this death, there is no reprieve
This is my atonement to you
The reparations for all I put you through

These words spoken in ways not meant to be heard
I put down on paper what I am too damned proud to ever say
Honest to you, every thing is true, to the last word
If not, then on my death bed I already lay

Well, Zoekin's taken responsibility for the Ryla soundtrack, which includes Part of Your World, Suppertime and Mean Green Mother From Outer Space. XP Not a bad ensemble at all.

But I think I'd add Knights of Cydonia to it as well, just for the chimeric, untamed adventure element to it...

Knights of Cydonia


Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh

Come ride with me
Through the veins of history
I'll show you how God
Falls asleep on the job

And how can we win?
When fools can be Kings
Dont waste your time
Or time will waste you...

Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh
Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh

No one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive...



Of course... that's also an excellent theme for Rygama too... XP

Ahh! I love that song! I always wanted to animate a big fight sequence to that song…but I can’t draw and I don’t have flash ^^;

I always thought The Black Parade by My Chemical Romance was a good fit for Fallen

When I was a young boy,
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band.
He said,
"Son when you grow up, will you be the saviour of the broken,
The beaten and the damned?"
He said
"Will you defeat them, your demons, and all the non believers, the plans that they have made?"
Because one day I leave you,
A phantom to lead you in the summer,
To join the black parade."

When I was a young boy,
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band.
He said,
"Son when you grow up, will you be the savior of the broken,
The beaten and the damned?"

Sometimes I get the feeling she's watching over me.
And other times I feel like I should go. Through it all, the rise and fall, the bodies in the streets.
When you're gone we want you all to know We'll Carry on,
We'll Carry on
Though your dead and gone believe me Your memory will carry on
Carry on
We'll carry on
And in my heart I cant contain it
The anthem wont explain it.

And we will send you reeling from decimated dreams
Your misery and hate will kill us all
So paint it black and take it back
Lets shout it loud and clear
Do you fight it to the end
We hear the call to
To carry on
We'll carry on
Though your dead and gone believe me Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated You're weary widow marches on

And on we carry through the fears
Ooh oh ohhhh
Disappointed faces of your peers Ooh oh ohhhh
Take a look at me cause
I could not care at all Do or die
You'll never make me
Cause the world, will never take my heart
You can try, you'll never break me
Want it all,
I'm gonna play this part
Wont explain or say i'm sorry
I'm not ashamed,
I'm gonna show my scar
You're the chair, for all the broken Listen here, because it's only..
I'm just a man,
I'm not a hero
Just a boy, who's meant to sing this song
Just a man,
I'm not a hero
I -- don't -- care
Carry on
We'll carry on
Though your dead and gone believe me Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated You're weary widow marches on
We'll carry on
We'll carry on
We'll carry on
We'll carry
We'll carry on

"Game On" by Disciple (Battle theme for Zion, I'm still looking for a standard theme song)

When the lights go up and the game is on
Are you ready for me
Cause I'm ready for you
When the bell rings out and the fight is on
Are you ready for me
Cause I'm ready for you
When the lights go up and the game is on
Are you ready for me
Cause I'm ready for you
When the bell rings out and the fight is on
Are you ready for me
Cause I'm ready for you
It's time for us to start throwing down
Take a look and see who's standing now
It's time for us to start throwing down
Look and see who's standing now

Didn't even know that you and I were cross
Until a sneak attack on the weak side
Unaware that we were in a fight
I guess that's part of the problem
But guess what

When the lights go up and the game is on
Are you ready for me
Cause I'm ready for you
When the bell rings out and the fight is on
Are you ready for me
Cause I'm ready for you
It's time for us to start throwing down
Just look and see who's standing now
It's time for us to start throwing down
Look and see who's standing now

Say what you want about me
Throw up what you want to throw up at me
But when you mess with those are around me
That's when you and I will have a problem

When the lights go up and the game is on
Are you ready for me
Cause I'm ready for you
When the bell rings out and the fight is on
Are you ready for me
Cause I'm ready for you
It's time for us to start throwing down
Just look and see who's standing now
It's time for us to start throwing down
Look and see who's standing now

I'm not afraid of loving my enemies
Turning the other cheek
Blessing those that would curse me
I honestly want peace with you
But when you come against my country
When you come against my family
You try to destroy my people
I can't just stand by
There's no way that I can stand by
This time I will not stand by
I am coming, and if I come
Then pain is coming with me
Now I'm coming and pain will be with me

When the bell rings out, this fight is on
Are you ready for me
Cause I'm ready for you
It's time for us to start throwing down
Just look and see who's standing now
It's time for us to start throwing down
Wow, look and see who's standing now
Look and see who's standing now
Look and see who's standing now
Look and see who's standing now

For my upcoming character, it would be "Throwdown" by Pillar:

Light It Up!

Training day is over
It's been laid on the line
I'll give this all I've got
And I'll find my time to shine
I will settle for no less
Than the best I've got to give
Only the strong survive
When they try to take you down


Toe to toe and pound for pound
It's time to step up it's time to throw down


There's nothing you say that could ever fade me
Serving up another lesson learned
Light it up and let the fire burn
There's nothing you say that could ever change me
Toe to toe and pound for pound
Step right up its time to throw down

The cage awaits this moment
The tension pushes through
The stage is set to showdown
I'm not turning my back on you
Face to face with the enemy
Giving in to you I refuse
Somebody's gotta win
And I don't know how to lose

Toe to toe and pound for pound
It's time to throw down

There's nothing you say that could ever fade me
Serving up another lesson learned
Light it up and let the fire burn
There's nothing you say that could ever change me
Toe to toe and pound for pound
Step right up its time to throw down

There's nothing you say that could ever fade me
Serving up another lesson learned
Light it up and let the fire burn
There's nothing you say that could ever change me
Step right up its time to throw down

Light it up!

There's nothing you say that could ever fade me
Serving up another lesson learned
Light it up and let the fire burn
There's nothing you say that could ever change me
Toe to toe and pound for pound
Step right up its time to throw down

There's nothing you say that could ever fade me
Serving up another lesson learned
Light it up and let the fire burn
There's nothing you say that could ever change me
Step right up its time to throw down

EDIT: My character's name is Alris Skyslasher

well , after finishing my first story with my character and Felarya ( i'm trying to translate it it to english)
Iīve found a good song for a spetial moment of the story (this happens before my character is transported to Felarya)

Calling to the night , from metal gear : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdU_0my-fA0&feature=related
in this part of the story, my character (Atlas) and his army is found in a ambush.( then the song begins), Atlas and his soldiers try to fight, but in vain, the enemy has the advantage ( more or less in the midle of the song), and finally , when Atlas's army is defeated and Atlas is surrounded by the enemy troops, Atlas use his last forces to kill the traidor who help the enemy to localizate them , and disapear (in the end of the song)
(if you take atention to the words of teh song, some of them make sense with what is hapening)

Calling to the night

Through the night, to the day
When everything is gone
Carry this soul away
From the dry lands
In the sun we see
Fighting over lines
All our dreams and wishes
We send home for safe keeping
Fighting for whatís right
Ö
Calling to the night
To dream
Again in the light
Waiting for a storm to rise and
Feel the isolation fleeting
calling to the night
To be or not to be fighting here
Leaving without you, leaving
My soul behind
Calling to the night
Colors
Of kodachrome fade with time
Ö
Calling to the night
For us
For every single life
All the ashes of men remain
As a perfect memory
Calling to the night
Ö
But the heart
Will remain
As a silhouette of time
Hear the ringing echos
In the splitting horizon
Calling to the night.

Ok ok...One song I've always wanted to use is: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/142921 Very Happy
I'm thinking of using this for my character in his second form speeding through Felarya at blinding speeds. Epic.
"If you can play it at high volume without pissing anyone off, don't pass up the chance."

Also, any music by Demon Hunter could do well for Zion. Especially ones like "Sixteen" and "Storm the Gates of Hell".

And for his more sensitive and depressed side, Rod Stewart's "Some Guys have All The Luck". It's a side you won't see, until I get a little deeper into my Felarya series and then write a biography for Zion on the side.

Character: Mania
Song: Sweet Sacrifice
Artist: Evanescence

"It's true, we're all a little insane
But its so clear
Now that I'm unchained"

"Fear is only in our minds
Taking over all the time
Fear is only in our minds but its taking over all the time"

"You poor sweet innocent thing
Dry your eyes and testify
You know you live to break me- don't deny
Sweet sacrifice"

"One day I'm gonna forget your name
And one sweet day, you're gonna drown in my lost pain"

"Fear is only in our minds
Taking over all the time
Fear is only in our minds but its taking over all the time"

"You poor sweet innocent thing
Dry your eyes and testify
And oh you love to hate me don't you, honey?
I'm your sacrifice."

"I dream in darkness
I sleep to die
Erase the silence
Erase my life"

"Your burning ashes
Blacken the day
A world of nothingness
Blow me away"

"Do you wonder why you hate?
Are you still too weak to survive your mistakes?"

"You poor sweet innocent thing
Dry your eyes and testify
You know you live to break me- don't deny
Sweet sacrifice"

Character: Malebolgia
Song: The Last Laugh
Artist: Iced Earth

"My personal quest is to make your life hell
Yes dear friend listen up well
The power I've given I can take as well"

Prechorus
"I am your father destroyer of the light
I've taken your soul and have given you life
You are the damned condemned by my hand
My daughter creature of the night"

Chorus
"Extending, now you rise
Tormented, soul of fire
Deception in my eyes
Your life, your life is mine"

Bridge
"My new born girl burn now with anger
I command and you must follow
Fly now and do battle
The heavens fall, mankinds disaster"

"In your hour of darkness
You warm my soul
God won't save you
Your souls been sold"

Prechorus

Repeat chorus

Look for a new story featuring Mania coming soon, because people really seem to like her!

This isn't for any of my characters in particular. Just about 99.9% of the people who come to Felarya thinking that they're already great heroes, or going to make a name for themselves as one. Very Happy It's called "Here's to the Heroes", by Terrence Chua (a very talented Filk songwriter from Singapore). Very Happy

Here's to the Heroes

His eyes were bright, his hair was blond, a handsome upright lad;
He looked up to the stars and wished he could be like his Dad.
He stowed aboard a rocket heading out to outer space;
But he forgot to factor fuel so he vanished without trace.

The soldier came upon a number of the enemy
While armed only with a pistol and the spirit of the free.
He steeled himself and leaped out, his finger clicking fast;
But he soon ran out of ammo, so that first leap was his last.

They lost the day, they screwed the pooch,
They really mucked it up.
They found out that reality
Is such a bitter cup.
If there's a lesson to be learned they learned it far too late;
That the principles of physics always beat the rules of fate.

You only hear the songs of those who win despite the odds,
But for every one of those there's one of these pathetic sods
Who think that all that's needed is their quick and fancy skill,
But soon find out a speeding bullet's even quicker still.

They died like dogs, they faded away,
They never made it back.
They thought that they knew everything
But all they knew was jack.
Pay heed my sons when people speak of brave and glorious deeds;
The ones who try them usually wind up pushing up the weeds.

In their heads they think that they're
The hero through and through,
And not the schmuck who's gunned down
In the middle of Act Two.
So don't mention Montana, or your grandmama at home,
Or you'll just guarantee the happy hunting grounds you'll roam.

His flying was unorthodox, his ship a battered mess-
He figured he could run rings round the Evil Empire's nest.
By every law of literature he knew he wouldn't fail;
The laws of better firepower told a different tale.

They bombed, they broke, they flunked, they flopped,
They bowled a seven-ten;
They never realized the sword's
Superior to the pen.
To die for one's beliefs is indeed a noble touch;
To live for them is better and it doesn't hurt as much!

They lost the day, they screwed the pooch,
They really mucked it up.
They found out that reality
Is such a bitter cup.
If there's a lesson to be learned they learned it far too late;
That the principles of physics always beat the rules of fate.

What an excellent song, I've never heard it before. I like how you intelligently pointed out that many people in this forum think that they are heroes, somehow more important or more interesting than other members here. It is true that we are all unique and bring different gifts and talents to the table, but in truth we are the equal in our individual value to this forum, brought together by an appreciation and inspiration stemming from Karbo's beautifully illustrated world of Felarya. Although, I would like to think that we are truly a collection of heroes for our ability to dream, and dream big.

A lot of people haven't; Terrence Chua typically writes/sings (very entertaining!) filk based on the Cthulhu Mythos, but he's become skilled enough that he now comes up with some original songs, as well. Smile

Thank you. Smile And I do agree; I think the concept of 'hero' can have many different meanings! There are the famous, world-saving epic heroes that everybody knows about... but for every one of them, there are dozens of poor schlubs who tried and failed. But there are also dozens of unsung heroes, who do what people might consider remarkable things every day, expecting and receiving no recognition or reward.

Not to start a political debate, or get people ranting about terrorism and the war in Iraq... but although the events that happened September 11, 2001 were both terrible and tragic; some of the stories that came out of the WTC are truly humbling. One can say that all of the police and firefighters who died that day were "just doing their job", but when you are trapped in a blazing inferno, unable to see, breathe, or even think clearly because of panic... and suddenly someone willingly enters that dangerous situation, risking their own life to save you when they don't have to... Shocked There are accounts of people who made it out of the WTC safely... and then wound up going back in to help others escape. Many of the people who did that did not come back out; their stories were told by the people they saved, who often sought out the families of the ones who saved their lives.

There are millions of "Everyday Heroes" who do things that are just as extraordinary and courageous in their own way as entering a cave to slay a dragon; perhaps it doesn't seem as impressive or epic as dragonslaying, but when you've fallen into despair and abandoned all hope of making it out of a situation, and someone suddenly appears in front of you who has the ability to save you... Very Happy

I used to hate poetry when I was a kid; it was incredible people like John Masefield and Langston Hughes who opened my eyes to a whole new world. ^^ In the spirit of the two lines above, and as sort of a counterpoint to Here's to the Heroes, I'll post another song. Laughing

Again, this song isn't for any character in particular, but can pretty much apply to anyone who willingly comes to Felarya rather than accidentally finding themselves there. The background on this song is that it was written and performed by a very talented lady named Emily Shackleton. If you like it, please look her up; her myspace page can be found easily on google or another search engine. She isn't a famous artist yet, she is at the point where she is still struggling to gain recognition and make it as a professional.

Many of you may recognize this song as one David Cook, the winner of the most recent American Idol, sung in this season's finals; "Dream Big" was Emily's entry into the American Idol Songwriting Contest for 2008. The song made it into the Top Ten finals for the contest, which the American Idol contestants then chose among to perform on the show. David Cook loved the song, and actually contacted Emily Shackleton about it, and ask if he could make a slight change to the lyrics when he performed it. Hopefully, having her song sung on American Idol and seen by millions of people will be good publicity for Emily. Laughing So, now that the background is out of the way, here is the song...

Dream Big

When I was a little girl ('boy', in David Cook's rendition),
I swore that I would change the world;
When I grew up,
Nothing else would be enough.

Back then it all seemed black and white;
But these days I just can't seem to find
The child in me, who always believed.

I see it everyday:
We settle for safe
And lose ourselves along the way!

But if you don't dream big, what's the use in dreaming?
If you don't have faith, there's nothing worth believing!
It takes one hope to make the stars worth reaching for;
So reach out for something more!

Took a well perfected plan
For me to finally understand,
That it's not me;
Faith is something I can see.

I loose the reins and let em go;
I broke the chains I fear
That had their hold on me too long,
When all I felt was wrong.

I've wiped my tears away;
Now it's time for a change-
No I can't waste another day!

Cuz if you don't dream big, what's the use in dreaming?
If you don't have faith, there's nothing worth believing!
It takes one hope to make the stars worth reaching for;
So reach out for something more!

Yeah...

So close your eyes and tell me what you see:
Between what's real and make believe,
Here's the path we've all been searching for;
So reach out for something more

Than you ever could imagine, then move-
Don't wait for it to happen!
Life's too short for not taking chances;
The stars aren't as far as they seem!

But if you don't dream big, what's the use in dreaming?
If you don't have faith, there's nothing worth believing!
It takes one hope to make the stars worth reaching for...

So close your eyes and tell me what you see:
Between what's real and make believe,
Here's the path we've all been searching for;
So reach out for something more!
For something more...
So reach out for something more !

I remember that song! Also very nice. It's surprising that Emily Shackleton is still struggling to gain recognition. Her work is very inspiring and motivating. Smile

Here's a song for my world-battered and bruised nomadic seeker of freedom: Haru

[Boulevard of Broken Dreams]
~-(sung by Utada Hikaru)-~

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a-

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh-Ah
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line of the edge
And where I walk alone

Read between the lines of what's
Fucked up and everything's all right
Check my vital signs to know I'm still alive
And I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a-

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there would find me
'Til then I'll walk alone...

Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah
Ahhh-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah
I walk alone
I walk a-

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a...

My shadows the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there would find me
'Til then I'll walk alone
~~~~~~~
This song really can be applied to Haru's existance for the past few years. While he hasn't 'only known' this existance, he's slowly forgetting what his old one was like, considering it was all a lie for the most part. (his family was engaged in a 10,000 year old magical war for pete's sake)

The name itself also reflects him, because he's slowly coming to realise that he's stuck like this, and there's no going back.

But the real clincher that really got me was that last verse that talks about the shadow. Go check him out on the prey roster and you'll see what i'm talking about.

and now, for that lucious little naga of my own creation... Alice

[Girlfriend]
~-(Avril Lavigne)-~
{Japanese version}

Hey hey anoko wa ima ichi
Ne ne atarashii ko ga hitsuyou
Hey hey atashi nante iinjyanai

Hey hey atashi ni wa wakatteru
No way no way himitsujyanai
Hey hey atashi ga natteageru

You're so fine I want you mine you're so delicious
I think about you all the time you're so addictive
Don't you know what I can do to make you feel alright (Alright...)

Don't pretend I think you know I'm damn precious
And hell yeah, I'm the mother fucking princess
I can tell you like me too and you know I'm right (I'm right...)

She's like so whatever
You could do so much better
I think we should get together now
And that's what everyone's talking about

Hey hey anoko wa ima ichi
Ne ne atarashii ko ga hitsuyou
Hey hey atashi nante iinjyanai

Hey hey atashi ni wa wakatteru
No way no way himitsujyanai
Hey hey atashi ga natteageru

I can see the way, I see the way you look at me
And even when you look away I know you think of me
I know you talk about me all the time again and again (Again and again...)

So come over here and tell me what I wanna hear
Better, yet, make your girlfriend disappear
I don't wanna hear you say her name ever again (And again...)

Because...

She's like so whatever
And she could do so much better
I think we should get together now
And that's what everyone's talking about

Hey hey anoko wa ima ichi
Ne ne atarashii ko ga hitsuyou
Hey hey atashi nante iinjyanai

Hey hey atashi ni wa wakatteru
No way no way himitsujyanai
Hey hey atashi ga natteageru

(Uh)
In a second you'll be wrapped around my finger
'Cause I can, 'cause I can do it better
There's no other, so when's it gonna sink in
She's so stupid, what the hell were you thinking?

(Uh)
In a second you'll be wrapped around my finger

Hey hey atashi nante iinjyanai

Hey hey atashi ni wa wakatteru
No way no way himitsujyanai
Hey hey atashi ga natteageru

Hey, hey!

~~~~~~~~

my reasoining? Easy. Alice is a japanese-american-ish naga. (she looks bolth american and japanese) this song, has japanese, AND american lyrics. She also has a thing for a certain someone back on her homeworld, but they're "being stupid" and not talking, this resulting in her friend getting a girlfriend which Alice completely despises

main difference though.... it's a girl that she likes, not a guy like in the song. x3

Most people do recognize it from when David Cook sang it on American Idol; it's unusual in that although Dream Big lost to The Time of My Life (the song the AI winner was to sing) in the American Idol Songwriting Contest, most people who heard Dream Big liked it more. Very Happy

I agree wholeheartedly! But trying to actually make a living as an artist is not easy. Sad Things have been looking up for her since American Idol, though! She's gotten quite a few TV interviews, and there's rumors that David Cook is interested in using the song as a single on his debut album. Very Happy
