about

This song was written as my first official demo for the Vocaloids Dex and Daina. I’ve always loved incorporating children’s stories into my songs, and as I was writing this song, I decided to draw connections between the two characters and their relationship with the story itself. I hope you will all enjoy this bittersweet tale of two people who decide to part to start a new life.

lyrics

Dex, Daina:

No, please let me go
I can’t stay here where I’m not wanted
Love pulled astray and swept away
On western winds now far departed

And though we tried to talk of magic spells to use
I think it’s time walk in someone else’s shoes
On yellow boulevards with a sun that always shines
Forget promises of glory and a rainbow lining

Goodbye to the love I’ve known
Need to find a place that feels like home
Far from where the tale begins
Searching for a happy ending

In one hundred years you’ll see
If you ever stop to think of me
Just a memory to enjoy
For a wicked girl and a tin boy

So, we’ve come to know
The bittersweet way only time flows
In my chest I laid to rest
An empty tick that coldly echoes

And though I tried to see things from your point of view
I hurt you my pretty and your little heart too
In emerald cityscapes we lived not long ago
Turned from roads that carry you that I’m not meant to follow

Goodbye to the love I’ve known
Wish I could have made this place your home
Far from where the tale begins
Given you a happy ending

In one hundred years I’ll find
If your smiling face comes to my mind
Fleeting memories to enjoy
For a wicked girl and a tin boy

My world is spinning ‘round
The colors melting down
Blur to sepia again

I chose the simple route
Hollowed and rusted out
Feelings that I lost within

Goodbye to the love I’ve known
Can I find a place that feels like home?
Far from where the tale begins
Reaching for my happy ending

In one hundred years you’ll be
Just another piece inside of me
One last memory to enjoy
For a wicked girl and a tin boy
