I really was serious, all five at once. XD
Next up is "A Tale of Six Trillion Years and One Night" by IA.
This one is LADEN with notes! I just can't seem to come up with stuff that flows well, rhymes, is singable, and isn't a rip-off from the thousands of other people who've done this already (I just wanted to try it because I love this song).
So please, feedback is especially welcome for this one. XD
In a village far that had no name
Lived a boy, a boy, of unknown fame
No one knew, no, no one knew
This fairy tale of his
It has been this way since I was born
Treated as some sort of demon spawn
No one cared, no, no one cared
That I had been punished (this line up for change)
There's one thing I scarcely know:
“There's no reason to be sad.”
But before I could object
To the sunset I was dragged (this pre-chorus up for change)
I don't know, I don't know, there're many things I don't know
Like a kind word, a soft word, a warmth to melt the snow
I don't know of “no pain”
Or the warmth after the rain
But I'm honestly, honestly, honestly, honestly, freezing and afraid
I can't die, I can't die, won't you hurry and let me die?
In this life that I'm living, not a dream takes to the sky
So this grand fairy tale
That is hardly even there
Will be sucked up and swallowed and tossed to the sunset and nobody will care (both choruses somewhat up for change)
What a life I lead of violence and shame
Such a sad existence, not even a name...
I couldn't even notice you
As you reached out your hand
We can't speak, we can't, and you know that
“What's your name?” That is the thing you asked
I'm sorry, I can't answer you
I don't even have a tongue
There's no place that I belong
There's no place for me, and yet...
“I am going home with you.”
And away I am dragged (up for change)
I don't know, I don't know, there is not one thing that I know
I don't know if you are or aren't a child anymore
But the warmth of your hand
And these feelings that I have
They are honestly, honestly, honestly, realer than all I've ever had (this line up for change)
You won't stop, you can't stop, why is it that you won't stop?
I think you know just what will happen if you're ever caught
Will the rain ever cease?
Will you choose to stay with me?
We'll be sucked up and swallowed and tossed to the sunset and that's OK with me (up for change)
As the sun vanishes within the ground
Dawn is breaking and we run around
If only life could be this way all the time...
If the world were just swallowed up and we were alone...
The world should be swallowed up and leave us alone...
I don't know, I don't know, but I think I hear a voice
Not the sound of your breathing, just a loud and painful noise...
With no chance to escape
Just like that, I'm dragged away
And we're sucked up and swallowed and tossed to the sunset for yet another day
I don't know, I don't know, I just do not understand
Not how our tale will end, or the name of my only friend
I don't know how I'll heal
Or if this is even real
But I'm honestly, honestly, honestly honestly, speaking what I feel (last three lines up for change)
I don't know, I don't know, but the ringing in my ears...
Has been sucked up and swallowed and into the sunset, it vanished in the air
