      Going Away

      Howetzer's Young Again inspired me to post one of the songs that I have written, one of my personal favorites. I wrote it about 2 years ago, just before leaving high school. It is dedicated to all my real friends and all the memories. It is a nostalgic song, about the feeling of loss with the pass of time and moving on:

      It's human nature
      for us to feel pain
      when everything's going away
      You just can't help it
      You burst into tears
      Time's bringing on
      the greatest of fears

      And you feel you fade...Out of time's reach into memories made

      Chorus:
      When did time leave? It took us by surprise
      Every moment that goes by a part of us dies
      We took it for granted and now it is gone
      What lies in the past awaits in the beyond


      Everything that you love
      must come to an end
      time is a rule
      that no one can bend
      And sooner or later
      you must realize
      nothing lasts forever
      and time has it's price

      And you feel you fade...Out of time's reach into memory lane

      [Chorus]

      Time can give life
      and can take it away
      It's funny how
      It turns out that way
      It will bring you good times
      you hope will last long
      but one day you wake up
      and see that they're gone

      And you feel you fade...Out of time's reach into memories made

      [Chorus]

      You take out your scrapbooks
      To see times that were
      You start looking back
      and you wish you were there
      But stop reminiscing
      yet charish the past
      Focus on the present cause that too won't last.....

      -----------------------------------------------------

      It is one of my mildest songs, but it is also one of my favorites...
      It means a lot to me and I wish I could sing it to you, but for that I have to get it on the net(and it would be great if I had some instument back up as well, instead of me just doing a solo...)
      If I hadn't made me
      I'd be more inclined to bow
      Powers that be would have swallowed me up
      But that's more than I can allow...

      Wow that is awesome. I am honored to have inspired.
      I wish to hell I could HEREit. as opposed to just reading it.

      Everything that you love
      must come to an end
      time is a rule
      that no one can bend --------thats my favorite part of the song
      And sooner or later
      you must realize
      nothing lasts forever
      and time has it's price

      Thanks howetzer, I am glad that you liked it....

      I wonder if anyone here can identify with the feeling of fading that I described in it. When I get it its really strong. I just feel that this exact moment will soon be past, and will be gone forever to never return....that is when I feel like I am fading...
      If I hadn't made me
      I'd be more inclined to bow

      Thanks...

      I have more like this one. They are pretty much about the same topic, but they are approached in a different way. I have to bring these notepad I have them in someday so I can post a couple more

      Thanks WerBurn, I take that as a compliment, since I think Paperdoll's stuff is pretty good. I guess I just replaced gloom for nostalgia in it...

      But fear not, I have depression songs too...

      I'll post some after I come back from my trip....
