Fireflies

Standard

Fireflies by Owl City suddenly became extremely popular, and at one point it was my favourite song on the radio. I liked how it was different from the themes of the other songs that were on replay. I know the song was sung by a male, but I was still tempted to see how it would sound. Luckily my base voice had no trouble with the pitch.

I got the karaoke from here and as always, used my in built Lenovo mike to record the karaoke. I┬áthen added my voice on top of that using Audacity. I actually used two layers of voice to get some of the ‘echoes’ in. Though cheap, I have to defend Lenovo and say that the microphone is much clearer than my old HP’s ever was, though the background music here is pretty garbage :P.

Lyrics

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep

‘Cause they’d fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You’d think me rude
But I would just stand and stare

I’d like to make myself believe
that planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that i’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems

‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightening bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance

A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

Leave my door open just a crack
(Please take me away from here)
‘Cause I feel like such an insomniac
(Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep
(Please take me away from here)
When I’m far too tired to fall asleep

To ten million fireflies
I’m weird ’cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell

But I’ll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
‘Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

Due to my website disappearance in the past month, I’m giving you two posts today!

My friend’s dog

Standard

I recently visited my friend in Edmonton, and she has a German Shepard & Husky mix dog named Ceaser. Though I didn’t get to meet Ceaser on this trip, I had an amazing time! Alberta is a beautiful place. She asked me to draw her dog for her, which I did the week I got back.

This dog actually took me a lot less time than some of my other recent drawings. I finished it in about 2 hours one evening. I think it’s because of the lack of detail I added compared to say, Radha & Krishna.

I apologize for being away for a while. I’m back :)
