This won SounDevotion Competition Round 61!
My goal was to make a song for the “rock” genre, but then I recorded the motif and thought that it wasn’t that hard. Next I thought I could call this a Porcupine Tree pastiche, that’s almost a genre. I briefly considered making it an “instrumental” but it didn’t sound right with the drums taken out.
As for the speech synth vocal, I thought to myself that my grandmother wouldn’t like that I wrote a song in Japanese before I wrote a song in Spanish.
Thanks to nys in battleofthebits.org for help with the melody.
No estoy seguro que puedes oirme,
No sé si ves a me,
pero espero que conoces mi sentimientos y comprendes mi pensamientos.
Pienso a tí, y no estoy preocupado con las palabras ultimas te dijome.
Espero que tú puedes orgulloso de mí.
Hecho de menos a tí.
I’m not sure if you can hear me,
I don’t know if you’re watching me,
but I hope you know my thoughts and understand my feelings.
I think about you, and I am not bothered by the last thing you said to me.
I hope you can be proud of me.
I miss you.
