Title: Aimee
Key: A major
Completed on: 31st January, 2011
Brief note: A song for Aimee's 22nd birthday.

stars so bright
moon alight
shining on our hearts
cloudless sky
silent night
keeping us apart

so tell me, Aimee
can you hear me clearly
cause you know, Aimee
it's a thousand miles

and tell me, Aimee
can you see me vividly
cause you know, Aimee
I'm complete when you smile

so free your tears, Aimee
leave your fears with me
and Aimee, please
stay with me

all these books
about Padfoot
our stories we create
your island's long
mine goes on
it's morning but it's late

Notes: I wrote this in a couple of days for Aimee's birthday four months ago, but I only managed to send her a rather crappy video at the time. Sick and tired of Sibelius's robotic "piano", I ventured yet again to the land of recording-with-my-actual-piano. This time, I used two microphones: my USB headset, and my iPhone voice memo thing. Hours later, thanks to the various effects of Adobe Audition, I had a piano accompaniment I was happy with.

So yes, this is me on the piano. And no, I'm not going to tell you how many takes it took to record. XD My voice obviously needs a lot of work, but I figured four months is a long time to wait for the actual present, so I decided to slap together what I have and release it to the Interwebs...and to Aimee. ♥

No idea who this aimee is, but sghjdsghghshgghghg


This meant a lot to me on my birthday, and it means a lot to me now, and I get so giddy and bouncy every time I hear it and I wish I could serenade you the way you serenaded me, and ashkfhhf, I love you so much, Sammy. Thank you so much. ♥

Yeah, who is this Aimee character? :\


I'm just so very, very glad that you enjoy it, because I know how much you love music, and I hope I've managed to do some of that love justice. Also, you should feel honoured cause I believe this is the first song (not video) I've recorded where I'm actually playing the piano, so yay! And, well, yay to the ambiguous & semi-inappropriate undertones of stalkeriness in the song! XD ♥

(LOL, the ambiguousness and semi-inappropriate undertons of stalkeriness is what makes the song so awesome! And your lovely singing and piano-playing, of course! ♥ )

How is that Snape smut song coming along, by the way?
