Shot in the Dark by Midorii-kiri Shot in the Dark by Midorii-kiri
[link]
Iíve been left out alone like a damn criminal
Iíve been praying for help cause I canít take it all
Iím not done,
Itís not over.
Now Iím fighting this war since the day of the fall
And Iím desperately holding on to it all
But Iím lost
Iím so damn lost

Oh I wish it was over,
And I wish you were here
Still Iím hoping that somehow

ĎCause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
Itís all in my hands
What can I do?
Donít let it fall apart
A shot in the dark

In the blink of an eye
I can see through your eyes
As Iím lying awake Iím still hearing the cries
And it hurts
Hurts me so bad
And Iím wondering why I still fight in this life
ĎCause Iíve lost all my faith in this damn bitter strife
And itís sad
Itís so damn sad

Oh I wish it was over,
And I wish you were here
Still Iím hoping that somehow

ĎCause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
Itís all in my hands
What can I do?
Donít let it fall apart
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark

I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away

ĎCause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
Itís all in my hands
What can I do?
Donít let it fall apart
Oh, your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
Itís all in my hands
What can I do?
Donít let it fall apart
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark

Earawen, after having her foster father (the only family she's ever known) die in her arms and watching the rest of her village be slaughtered, is cast out into a world that hates and fears her race. She begins to lose touch with reality and eventually tries to end it all. It could be that she thought it wasn't real...or she could be wanting to end the pain and humiliation she's endured. Either way, the end result would be the same.



Holy crap this took me about four months to do working an average of about two hours every day. :faint: But well worth it. I was way too detailed with the itty-bitty houses that you can't see the details anyway. And I learned how to color blood. Isn't that exciting? The song portrays Earawen's plight very well.

...should this have a mature warning on it?

Earawen belongs to me. Please don't take her without permission.

you might consider giving it a mature rating with the blood and the explanation for her death. great job though!
