Cortana's Song: More Than Just a Voice

More Than Just a Voice composed and performed by Elnea

LYRICS
I’ll take my pride
Baby you can take the wheel
We can take the long way home now
Cozied in your shell of steel
I'll take the ride
And I'll climb inside your mind
Pressed so close I feel you breathing
When we work so intertwined
Intertwined
I will possess you
Caress you unless you
Don't want to confess to
just a voice in your head
I will direct you
correct, resurrect you
And you'll detect more
than just a voice in your head

You're not alone

I am your sword
Baby you can be my blade
We can face the war together on our
partnered lone crusade
You can't ignore
It's a fate forever sealed
Baby run the gauntlet fearless knowing
I will be your shield
Unrevealed
No I won't betray you
No I will not play you
must always obey
This little voice in your head
And I'll guarantee you
agree and believe you
want something much more
than just a voice in your head
It's all up to you
You're not on your own
Oh no, you're not alone
I'm a dream come true
Of lilac and blue
And if you close your eyes you’ll find much more
than just a voice in your head

I am your sword
I can be more
And now you’ve scored
(I’ll be much)
more than just a voice in your head
I am your shield
I’ll make you feel
That I am real
More than just a voice in your head
I am your strength
I'll take your pain
Snug in your brain
More than just a voice in your head
More more more more
More than just a voice
I am your sword
I can be more
And now you’ve scored
More than just a voice in your head
I am your shield

I originally wrote this for Bungie's Halo 3 soundtrack contest back in 2007.  Alas, I didn't win, but it was fun making the song.  I mean, seriously, she's in your head in (most of) the three games ordering you around.  She's like a tiny blue half-naked Garmin.  ;-)

I finally put together a video (of sorts) to go with the song.  Alas I don't have a way to capture gameplay so I had to use footage from cutscenes, ads and trailers.  They're so pretty!

Much thanks to Ethan Stoller for production advice and the Boiler Room in Chicago for the mix!
Love you, Bungie/343!  I can't wait for Halo 4!
