Last Window – Promise Lyrics

28 March 2013 at 20:22 (Artwork, Kid Liquorice, Random Randomness) (, , , , , )

This was inspired by the scene in Last Window, where Kyle’s mother would look out the window while this song played. Kyle’s losing of his father reminded me of Kiki’s losing Callimachus, so I wrote some lyrics to match. I used this as an illustration in Dreamsong chapter 5, although the sentiment is more matched to a scene in chapter 4.

I’ve finally updated the image to match the lyrics. However, there just isn’t enough space for the full version with the additional chorus. But the rest of it matches.

I treasured the promise you made me.
It gave me
the strength to fight.
But now I grow weary of crying,
of trying
to understand.
And now…

Now I close my eyes,
I see your smile
and I’m wondering why.
Why you went away,
and all the promises you made to me,
they’re dying.
And I’m all alone
among the ruins of
our shattered dreams.

I wonder if you still remember,
together,
those dreams we had.
But now they have faded and left me
so empty,
just like your words.
But now…

Now I close my eyes,
I see you smile
and I ask myself why.
Why you went away,
and all the promises you made,
have they all died?
Am I all alone among the wreckage of
my broken heart?

Do you close your eyes
and see my smile?
Do you ask yourself why?
Why you went away,
and all the promises you made
were they all lies?
Now are you all alone among the wreckage of
your broken heart?

    These lyrics are beautiful. I’ve received a request on YouTube to record them and I just wanted to ask your permission first. Also, I would like to use the gif for the background picture on my video. You would, of course, be credited for both the lyrics and the artwork and I would provide a link back to your work.

    Thanks,

    Helen

      Oh thank you! I am flattered! Yes, you may record them with credit πŸ™‚ Please link me when it’s ready.

      • Helen Edgeworth said,

        Thank you! I will do. πŸ˜€

        • Silver Arrows said,

          I just checked out your version of Belief πŸ˜€ It’s very sweet :mrgreen:

          • Helen Edgeworth said,

            Thank you so much! I am still doing Promise – I just realised after I mixed it that I need to re-record a couple of phrases. I should be able to complete it soon and then I’ll let you know. πŸ˜€

            • Silver Arrows said,

              It’s okay and if you want to tweak the lyrics a bit, that’s fine. I’m not happy with some parts of it, but I couldn’t do any better 😦 So if you want to make some minor changes, I’m fine with that, too.

            • Helen Edgeworth said,

              Actually, I’m re-recording because I made a couple of lyrical mistakes – just a word here and there, but it’s kinda obvious because I’m using the picture with the lyrics on it as the background for the video.

              I really like your lyrics as they are! πŸ˜€ I know how difficult it can be sometimes to look at your own work objectively – I have the same problem with listening to my own singing voice.

            • Silver Arrows said,

              Aww, thanks! Yeah, I get what you mean. It’s gonna feel a bit strange listening to it as well, though :O

      Oh wow! *SUPER SQUEE FANGIRL HUG*

      *helenvondrama added to fangirl list*

      It’s fantastic! Thanks and I’m going to feature it here, too.

      Somehow I imagined you’d use the vinyl version for the music, but I do prefer the music box version myself, so it’s all good πŸ˜€ Aww and thanks for plugging my fanfic πŸ˜‰

      • Helen Edgeworth said,

        Woo! *ACCEPTS SUPER SQUEE FANGIRL HUG, HUGS BACk*

        I… I has fangirl? *faints*

        Thank you! I’m so glad that you liked it and that you’re going to feature it! πŸ˜€

        Yeah, I had to go and listen to the vinyl version just now to remind myself what it sounds like… I prefer the music box version too. And no problem. πŸ˜‰
