York and Dee

Musiter Extras: York and Dee



TCK at The Ram and The Rye




Okay, this one is sort of related to Halo.   (LOL no escape!)  This is an arrangement of a song Lauren and I did at the 2007 RedvsBlueToronto convention that I wrote using lyrics that another RvB fan, Kurt Sasso, had written for a lyric contest I dreamt up because I was having Halo lyric writer's block for a few months.   I wrote the music.  

So here are the two relevant videos.  The first Lauren and I shot in my mom's house shortly after my mother moved away.  It was big and echoey and why not?  The second is the footage from our "performance" at RvBTO open mike night at The Ram & The Rye bar on the Ryerson campus in Toronto.  That was weird.  LOL!



LYRICS by VertigoX a.k.a. Kurtis Sasso
How can I be bits and bytes?
A bunch of ones and zeros.    
I'm alive, I'm part of  you.
Why must I be destroyed?
 
Measures were put into place.
They were no challenge for me, 
They didn't know,  things could go wrong.
 Why won't they let me live?
 
AI: Admirable Spartan, always there
AI: Once you were gone, I was not complete
AI: Back through my coding, I searched for you
AI: Alas, it  was not meant to be...
 
SPARTAN
And now how can I save you...dear AI of mine?
For you see  you are all that they gave to me.
You followed me and then you went and followed my dreams.
My AI, I was a fool.
 
Faithful friend, you're always there
Once you were gone, I was not complete
Back through my memories, I searched for you
But Alas, it was not meant to be...

(Oboe Solo)

AI: Don't cry for me now, oh Spartan  of mine.

Spartan:  I'm to blame

AI You followed me, without a pause.
The path we shared was the same

Spartan: Was the same

(counterpoint)
Faithful friend, you're always there.                             
Admirable user, always there
Once you were gone, I was not complete         
Once you were gone, I was not complete
Back through my memories, I reached for you   
Back through my coding, I searched for you
Alas, it was not meant to be...                           
Alas, it was not  meant to be...
 
So what do we do, while we wait for the end?
Can we or should we  forgive and forget?
Our dreams weren't realized till it was too late.
We longed to return to that which we knew.
Do not worry for us...for we fear not death.
We know In your memories we will live on
