so yeah, about that..




HEY so guess what???? I wrote, filmed and put another song on youtube!!! *CONFETTI*
the camera quality is TERRRIBLE, and it's super dark- which I thought would be cool with the christmas lights and the theme of the song ALSO I WOULDN'T HAVE TO SHOW MY FACE VERY MUCH WHICH IS A BONUS buuut I feel like it just looks like I have a terrible camera. WHICH IS TRUE BUT IT'S RUDE OF YOU TO MENTION. Ahem.
Also there is a lot of background noise, including some very creepy laughing I just noticed but I guess that's what happens when you finally get an empty room- there's a heck of a lot of background noise. OH WELL

aaaanyway, here it is, and I am writing MORE and doing MORE covers and I have a feeling you're going to hear a lot more from me in the immediate future.







Lyrics:
d-i-s-t-r-e-s-s (3x) 
signal

the troops let them know
we are found
lost in the void
lost in the darkness

one by one falling down
one by one going dark 
one by one empty the sky

hands reaching
only mine reaching
for an empty sign
empty hope
empty promises

d-i-s-t-r-e-s-s (3x) 


As for the backstory I promised, I got the idea for this song while sitting watching my siblings beat the life out of a piƱata and- yeah it has absolutely no bearing on that fact. I just had the melody stuck in my head and then I was like "what if I spelled out a word???" so then I got the tune on the guitar and then I wrote the lyrics the next day and then like a week later I got the room to myself and like 2 weeks later I had good enough to upload. 
SO YEAH about when I said I was going to do In My Own Little Corner, WELL it's too complicated a song for me to have the patience to learn it on the piano or guitar so I was going to just use like a karaoke version or whatever but about the 50th time I sang it I was like.... this song isn't even that great. I mean, Cindy here's a little flighty. I mean, in light of the fact that I'm writing a retelling where she is a superhero who is having insanity issues and stuff THIS SONG IS KIND OF SILLY???? if you get what I mean?? 

aaaanyway, maybe I'll do it someday, maybe not, I still have to do A Thousand Years for Allie, and all that jazz so... YEP music is coming your way soon!!!
It would be easier for you (if you want to listen to them) just to subscribe to my youtube channel, but I will be posting lyrics and sometimes backstory on here almost every time I post a video so whichever is fine. HERE's the link in case you want to. 
and yes, now I'm done rambling. 
okayloveyoubyeeeee!!!!!!!

  2. I loved listening to your song; as I mentioned last time the topic came up, your voice is GORGEOUS - which is why I loved your song even though I couldn't make out most of the lyrics at the time. Oops. ;P

    And the background noise - I'm guessing younger siblings? I actually kind of enjoyed hearing them, because so often people's 'internet lives' are very sterile?? and it's nice to know other people have noisy families. ;)

    Can't wait for YouTube to inform me you have another video up... :)

    1. AWW!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, MY DEAR SLR!!!!! I know, the audio is rubbish. I think I'll start putting the lyrics in the video's description as well and eventually I'll get a microphone and a better camera!! But that's not gonna be soon lol.

      Haha yes, ALL of them seemed to decide to be loud at that moment. But I also get what you're saying and I'm glad you liked it! Honestly, I like it for myself but I didn't know if anyone else would be like "who da heck is cackling like a witch in the background and WHY" but yes, hahahaha my family is freaking loud, so there's that.

      AND YOU SUBSCRIBED OMG. You know I'm starting to think there's a reason behind all this niceness. I AM BUSY WITH COLLEGE BUT I AM WRITING MORE I PROMISE.
      (Though you being super sweet and nice DEFINITELY helps me write faster so can you like send some pre-made tea (lots of milk and only a tiny scoops of sugar) and some chocolate (preferably milk chocolate or dark with almonds) and uh.... I'll keep you updated on what else I want, kay?)

      But seriously, thank you so much for commenting, Jem!!! You're the best.

    2. Why would my niceness make you suspicious??? that's totally paranoid of you, Esther. PARANOID.
