Final Farewell
-Tribute to Phantasmagoria-

"Someday, without fail, that day will come ... When the time comes to decide… But my heart refused this decision ... Even if it's a camouflaged love ... Because if the time comes ... I won't say goodbye ... "Saying goodbye was the sign of a beginning" ... I couldn't say it ... "Because it's just the beginning" ... Then illusion shows itself ... Until that day.

Again the sun rises ... The time that would someday come has arrived ... Screaming every now and then "Now let's fly away" (Rainy eyes) "Nothing will change" (This drowning emotion) "Stay... 4 3 2 1" (Lay a person under a spell) "Open up the door"  (Vanish) "To forget" (Life is but...) "Light and rain" ... I shed tears from one eye… At your last moment.

We will never return to that day, that time ... Never ever again can I return to this place ... I'll never forget it ... It'll awaken in our memories ... Memories of the past ... They become shadows and can never return ... "Will never return" ... And again it repeats ... One more time ... The tale would be composed anew ... A new road will be born ... Farewell to you ... Phantasmagoria."

I wanted to do something for my favorite band who is officially disbanding today. I didn't know what to do at first, but I wanted to create a little tribute for them to show how I am feeling. And one day, I came up with this idea.

This text as been created with parts of the lyrics of the 22 songs of the band. I wanted to include all the songs and I managed. It was hard work, but I am very proud of it.

The sections that are in quotes (mostly the one in the middle paragraph) are at the final live itself, when Riku (vocalist) sings those parts. I could say that the followings words in parentheses are like the emotion felt from the fans...from me, if only I could have been there.

Forever Mago <3

Credit for the songs translation goes to this wonderful fansite [link] And as you may guess, the lyrics credit goes to Phantasmagoria.

You and me both honey....I am going to miss those boys to.
Maybe its foolish of me, but I believe they might come back some day. Maybe no next year, or the year after, but after all those five have been through. I cant see them being gone forever.

Anywho moving on the actual work >>;;;

This is very well done ^^ It kinda is like a Phantasmagoria song XD I kinda wanna try and write a musical score to it *Honest~!* This brought tears to my eyes.
I really do love this, and I should get off my duff and do something for them as well, but I cant at the moment. I am a little to depressed.

@___@ Sorry for the weird ass comment, but my brain isnt in the right state of mind

Same here... I can't believe that they are gone forever now.. > <
They can't!! I want them back together =(

^^ !! ..Serious?! *wasn't expecting this* If you ever compose something one day, you have to show me!! Please ^^'
I am very happy that you like it!! My mission is done if the emotion was felt like I wanted it to be~
I "wrote" this, in the beginning of the week. I knew, I wouldn't have the mind to do this during the weekend.. T_T

^-^ I only have a bass guitar and a flute, but I am sure I could whip up something. Though I dont know how I would get it up here XD I am sure I would find a way.

Though I kinda like the idea of the flute. When I read this I think of something softer, and more flowing. So yea...

*hugs you back*

..I have no idea how you can bring this up here XD We can always figured out a way when the time comes ^^

I agree!! The flute would be very nice~
It would go well with the feeling & emotions of the text.

I need to get it from my BF's house but that's not hard unless I refuse to get off my ass XP
But I kinda have a melody in my head right now. So we'll see how well I can get it out the instrument X3
