    Default Romantic Dragon Filk

    I had totally forgotten about this forum when I posted this on the Homebrew section. Posting it here since this is where it belongs. Hopeful it will get more feed-back here than it did there.
    If someone with the right voice and/or instrument(s) wanted to record it I would be VERY happy and could probably even get it broadcast on the webcast station of a friend of mine if they wanted...


    To the tune of "100 Years (to live)" by Five for Fighting.

    4000 Years (to live)
    With Apologies to Five For Fighting

    I'm 55 for a moment
    Caught in between 20 and 200
    And I'm just dreaming
    Counting the winds to where you are
    I'm 300 for a moment
    She feels better than ever
    And we're on fire
    Making our way back from Celestia

    55 there's still time for you
    Time to buy and time to lose
    55, there's never a *Wish* better than this
    Even when you've got 4000 years to live

    I'm 500 for a moment
    Still the drake, but you see I'm a they
    A clutch on the way they
    A family on my mind
    I'm 700 for a moment
    The tempest is high
    And I'm heading into a crusade
    Chasing the meaning of my life

    55 there's still time for you
    Time to buy and time to lose yourself
    Within a morning star
    55, I'm all right with you
    55, there's never a *Wish* better than this
    Even when you've got 4000 years to live

    Quarter time goes by
    Suddenly you're Anchient
    Another change of an Age
    12-hundred is gone
    The sun is getting high
    We're soaring on

    I'm 39-hundred for a moment
    Dying for just another moment
    And I'm just dreaming
    Counting the thermals to where you are

    55 there's still time for you
    300 I feel her too
    500 you're on your way
    Every day's a new day

    55 there's still time for you
    Time to buy and time to choose
    55, there's never a *Wish* better than this
    Even when you've got 4000 years to live



    Celestia is technically too many syllables but I think it works...
    "Thermals" substituted for "ways" may be a bit corny... not sure...

    Anyway, what do y'all think and does anyone have any further suggestions?

    (Bumping for more feedback)
    What? Are people not familiar with the original song?

    Oooo, filky.

    Awesome filk there. Not heard the original song, but the lyrics you posted there were cool.
    "I'm just going on motive and opportunity here and the fact that if the earth got swallowed by a black hole, I'd look suspiciously in your direction first."

    Thank you very much.
    Eh... I guess I will go ahead and give a link to a music video of the song this is based on...

    The lyrics work quite well. "thermals" sounds a bit weird, "winds" would fit better (both in pronounciation and number of syllables closer to "ways") but the rest is good.

    "winds" works... will actually change that...
    Technically what you did is probably "thread necromancy", so maybe you should have PMed me, but probably didn't know that.
