The hints of mystery and slight suspense is projected quite well with the visuals ^_^ I was wondering if that was your intention, so kudos to you
I guess I was just iffy because I needed to understand the song and for it to grow on me a bit more haha. I mean, the music's wonderful! I just needed to connect with it a bit more, partially because I don't know what the lyrics mean XD
After posting, I realized some things can be done better. I'll use the improved version in the demo. I added the English lyrics in the description, but I will post it here to make it easier:
「 English Lyrics」
In these walls, their hands can never reach us.
Past these doors, their words can never hurt us.
It's not your breathing,
it's not your heartbeat sounding step by step
Unlocking all the secrets in me.
It's not your screaming,
It's not you telling me to stay strong.
You weren't wrong but it takes more just to keep me sane.
Do you think it's a game?
Do you think I'll be played?
Are you looking to fall?
Are you looking to fade?
Soon the knight takes pawn,
and the rook takes the knight.
Time to send out your queen
if you're asking to fight.
Why aren't you scared of heights?
If you climb then you will fall.
How can you bear to understand?
The doors that guard my truth,
you open in my name.
Cruel prophet of my fate, I know
I'm just another secret, you're no
Cinderella waiting to be saved,
You're why my heart's no longer mine.
I hope this makes the message clear! The composer originally sang the song in English, but I thought Japanese sounds more cool lol.
I think to gather all songs done for Dark Nights and post it at once.
