Another new Glitch song with audio: Giant Lullaby

This is my last song before closing time. I have others I have not published so I might manage to get those up some time, if it's not all too sad.  (Edit: no, I do intend to get them up, soonish. They'll be on Soundcloud and announced on my tumblr.)

WARNING: This is a SAD SONG.

Listen to Giant Lullaby here.

Lyrics:
Sleep a little longer; close your weary eyes
Giants who are dreaming; for dawn may soon arise
Let the moon glow softly, let stars shine above
Giants who are dreaming, creating Ur with love.

Zille and Lem and Spriggan; Grendaline, Friendly
Pot, Humbaba, Cosma; Alph and Mab and Tii
Sleep on, beloved Giants, as the starlight gleams
Let Glitchen caper joyfully, dancing in your dreams

Imagine meadow valleys, snowbound caves of ice
Workrooms, homes and towers, trees of gas and spice
Dream of treetop twilights; dream of oceans deep
Dream Glitchen exploring, climbing mountains steep

But if you must awaken, Giants one and all
Rising from your slumbers, obeying morning's call
Don't forget your dreaming, remember all your friends
Memories are forever, though dreams may have to end

Remember, gentle Giants, every Glitchen small
Tiny specks of happiness in a world generous to all
Remember every Glitchen, fading into night
Retreating into history with the morning light.

  • So very gorgeous. *hugs* I thought I was done crying after 2 hours (1 hour prior to EOTW) and 1 hour after; then i heard this gorgeous ballad and I'm bawling again. But, these are tears both wondrous and bittersweet. You truly captured the spirit of Glitch and what it means to all of us. *hugs* so tight, you are amazing, Ur bard.

    Love,

    Jess

  • Theremina, make sure Danny puts your song that played at the opening of Launch in his music CD please!!! It was a big part of the game that day!!!
    Posted 7 years ago by Dagnabbit Rabbit Subscriber! | Permalink
  • I have no direct line to Danny and I would feel big-headed asking him to include my music in something like that! If you feel that "Please Let Me Go Back To Groddle" is a part of Glitch history and you want it in, please do let him know that yourself. I am totally happy for that to happen or to be contacted about it - puchiko@gmail.com will get to me.
