Parralox - Shinigami
 

Shinigami

Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
When you dream of, you dream of a friend
When you need some, someone till the end
Who will be there, that you can depend?
Who'll stay till the end?
And is heaven sent?

Prechorus 1
I Dream of you,
I'm falling for a dream come true,
I'm running to a dream of you,
I'm waiting for a dream come true
So take me

Chorus
Shinigami, a bringer of light
A soul that you save
From the darkest night
Shinigami, on you I depend
Like all my friends
You'll stay till the end

(You'd stay till the end x4)

Verse 2
A dream a vision, for all mankind
It's in mind, it's my mind
We need a saviour, or some kind of friend
Who'll stay till the end, but not make amends

Repeat Prechorus
Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
Dream of you
Dream of you

Repeat Chorus x2

Final Chorus
Shinigami, a bringer of light
A source of comfort on those lonely nights
Shinigami, on you I depend
You made a promise you'd stay till the end

Additional Info:
Started session at 0215 Wednesday 26 October.

Mark came over last nigth adn we edited the Goodbye Berlin Music video. We used After Effects and he had some good ideas for masking etc, which I was initially a bit hesitant about, but they ended up working well.
I've been watching the original Death Note (2006) anime again and wanted to write a song about the Shinigami. I sometimes hate writing these production notes as it sometimes gives too much away from the songs, but then the lyrics end up going a bit metaphysical and off on a tangent, so most times people don't really know what it's about anyway, so I guess I shouldn't worry too much.

Fniished first session at 0500. Printing V1 now.
Have written and recorded rough V1, Pre Chorus, Chorus and some kind of hook.
Audio V1 versions finished printing at 0503 hours and The Twilight Zone (Nightmare as a Child) has been playing in the background.
This was allocated production number 000 (as all unfinished Parralox tracks are) but I decided to move this to an official production number = 240 as it's close enough to being finished and releaseable in some format eventually.
Good night, and until next time.

It's now Wednesday afternoon. I viewed the apartment at 333 Exhibition Street. I really want this one, but will have to wait till Friday. I have dinner with Louise tonight at ShandongMama. I'll try and finish this song so I can play it to her. I need to fix the lyrics overall. I might have to move things around. Let's see how we go. It's now 1420 hours and I have Exorcist 3 playing in the background.

Verse A - 0216 hours
Find a truth, It's all I can do
You and me, for eternity

Chorus B 26/10/2022 0329 hours (Changed to Verse A @ 1500 hours)
When you dream of, you dream of a friend
When you need some, someone till the end
Who will be there, that you can depend?
Who'll stay till the end?
And is heaven sent?

Prechorus - Written 26/10/2022 @ 1520 hours
A Dream of you, I'm falling for a
Dream come true, I'm running to a
Dream of you, I'm wishing/waiting for a
Dream come true, surrender/so take me/so maybe

New Chorus - 26/10/2022 1618-1632 hours (DS9 - The Search Part 2 playing in background)
Shinigami, a bringer of light
A soul that you save
From the darkest night
Shinigami, on you I depend
Like all my friends
You'll stay till the end

Chorus A - 0309 hours
Shinigami, I need a friend
Don't break a promise, on you I depend
Shinigami, please don't me down
You made a promise you'd stay till the end

Shinigami, a bringer of light
A source of comfort on those lonely nights
Shinigami, on you I depend
You made a promise you'd/PLEASE stay till the end

Verse A - 0428 hours (now changed to Verse B @ 1710 hours)
A dream a vision, for all mankind
It's in mind, it's my mind
We need a saviour, or some kind of friend
Who'll stay till the end, but/AND not make amends

When you what what to do
I don't what, I know
I know what to

Scan hear call
Don't.
