summer move forward and stitch me the fabric of fall
wrap life in the brilliance of death to humble us all
how sweet is the day
I'm craving a darkness
as I sit tucked away with my back to the wall

and the taste of dried-up hopes in my mouth
and the landscape of merry and desperate drought
how much longer dear angels
let winterlight come
and spread your white sheets over my empty house

summer move forward and leave your heat anchored in dust
forgotten him, cheated him, painted illusions of lust
now language escape, fugitive of forgiveness
leaving as trace only circles of rust

and the taste of dried-up hopes in my mouth
and the landscape of merry and desperate drought
how much longer dear angels
come break me with ice
let the water of calm trickle over my doubts

come let me drown
angels no fire no salt on the plow
carry me down
bury me down

and the taste of dried-up hopes in my mouth
and the landscape of merry and desperate drought
once I knew myself
and with knowing came love
I would know love again if I had faith enough
too far is next spring and her jubilant shout
so angels, inside
is the only way out

Drought Sung By Vienna Teng

I was hoping to make a series of wallpapers based on her first album, the Waking Hour. A Must Buy! (if you are fond of the piano and voice styles like Enya)

Back to the wall, I was in love with the scan at first sight. Absolutely b-e-a-utiful! XD I had waited patiently for the artbook to grab this scan. And so... tada! Because the song was very meloncholy, I decided to go for a darker theme. Thus, the dark, empty, night sky came into place. Almost like an omnious tone, ne?

And I bet you are asking "Why do they wings and sparkley things?"
Answer: Because I'm a girl so deal with it.
...joke. Actually, it's because of their characters in the story (Time Stranger Kyoko). None of them are humans, though they might look like they are. So to make them a bit more supernatural, added the wings (which came from Imanimetions.net's wing template), and added sparkley scrap to make it a litte fuller (and to satisfy my girly twitches X-P).

The problems I think were the waters behind them. Though such a small detail, it annoyed the living daylights out of me. Why? Because a) it didn't look right, b) it just didn't flow together (no pun intended), and c) it was such a trivial detail that I had to get it right.

[music] As I stated before, I've been addicted to Vienna Teng's first album. And now I'm hoping to get my greedy hands on the next one. :D
[layers] 60+
[timing] Several hours. I can't really recall. I don't stare a the clock.:sweat:

ps. please full view for better viewing. And the sky area is icon space, do don't complain about that. :\
