"Everything you've done, everything you've seen, everything you've become, remains. You never can go back, only forward, and if you don't bring the whole of yourself with you, you'll never see the sun again." -Michael Marshall Smith, Only Forward.

==

Third track of the album, and the most radical makeover so far relative to the original Dark Days material I wrote all those years ago. Back then the song was called 'Too Little Too Late', and was a minor key song with a burst of raw anger in the middle book-ended by sorrow.

Dark Days was actually a concept album which told a story. The first track dealt with unrequited love, which was suddenly blown out of the water in the second track when everything changed. The third track, then, was an attempt to do something about it, but the opportunity had already been missed - hence, too little, too late.

I don't really think that way any more. Our choices, for good or bad, make us who we are. The world keeps on turning, and we learn and grow from our experiences, even those which are terrible at the time. The only way is forward, and we might as well do what we can to make something positive of that.

Enjoy!

(Made in MuLab.)

Gorgeous opening. Nice building with the lead and harmonies. Then the beat/mood transition: It's like going from a past that has given beneficial insight, to a present where a determined person is going to make the most of their surroundings, as you describe. Then a third mood comes on … seems to hold some regret?

@becwil: Interesting that you picked up on that last point. One of the major tensions I've noticed in putting this project together is that I'm fundamentally trying to do something 'new' with music that's close to 20 years old. I'm now discovering all kinds of patterns and habits which were obvious on my last album but whose roots apparently go all the way back here, and I'm spending a lot of time wrestling with whether to accept and honour them or try to change them. So at the same time that I'm determinedly trying to look forward there's a part of me that can't help looking back... (Which is a theme I'll most likely explore in more detail on track 4, as it happens. Stay tuned. smiley )

Time passage as we recognize and created is but an illusion within our universe . Approaching Folds ; our exit is flawless, beyond grandiose . Now launched . Guided . Securely .
Your song is sending us.

I mean this with compliments when I say that I've been playing too many Jrpgs and shmups, occasionally checking the odd anime to go with one and this sounds like it would fit in nicely as a soundtrack. Nice work!

@Aamp: A couple of people have mentioned soundtrack in connection with this one. Maybe I should give that some thought for my next project...

@Narananda: Many thanks! I'm glad that stuff like this can give people a lift from time to time - it makes a refreshing change from the gloomy old days where if it wasn't in a minor key it wasn't really music to me... smiley
