(whoops, guess who accidentally fixated on those stairs in the first picture)
starting at square one
i swear i'll take the stairs this time
for once in my life
i've never felt the sun
brush me at such heights before
i think it could be fun
staring at the summit
feeling my stomach plummet
i want to, but i can't give up
one step and one step more, see?
at least i've got you with me
i guess i'll see you at the top
This track is mainly heavy string/choir based stuff, mixed with live drums. Or at least, live with what i've got. It's more or less meant to sound epic basically.
The track takes one idea, and tries to run with it, whilst still giving new sections, as a breath of fresh air. All in all i hope you like it!
Every day I can watch the sun set
But the vision of it fills me with such regret
Over yonder a dream unfulfilled
Have no heir to continue my line, there is nil
No descendants, no family left
The end of my family, hope is bereft
So serene, all the scenery stands
But to think that a mortal is trapped to his past
When I'm gone, who'll remember my name?
Cuz whatever I do, the result is the same
There it lies, the end of a path
Alone in a tower, it all will just pass
Through the clouds and the flying birds
A life not lived, a choice not made
As the sun smiles upon the scene
My frown won't cease, I find no peace
In the end, was no fault but my own
Is it really too late? Am I really too grown
Is there time to turn it around?
Could I change up my course? Should I go out to town?
I have much to do, and so much to see
I must leave this lonesome balcony
