(the other song I was teasing will be coming soon I just need more time to work on it- and I’ve been working on this in the background for forever so I thought I’d post it!)
and that’s how it will be, for eternity.

April is a pensive month, so if I was gonna upload this month I felt that I should sing a pensive song. Melancholy of the Literary Boy is a song I’ve been meaning to cover since I first started out and I wanted to use the lovely art I commissioned from Eru!
This is honestly such a sad song to me, because it’s just so honest. I always feel like this song perfectly encapsulates how thoughts like this feel. In depression, it’s not always you hiding in your room crying to yourself about how much you hate life (though it can be that too), sometimes those thoughts just hit you in public. Nobody can tell what you’re thinking, and your facial expression may not even falter but it hits you, suddenly. I think this song shows the perfect build up to how the thoughts keep getting more and more intense, all stemming from a simple thought: “What if I just left everything behind right now?”, and at the end, everything calms as it must, even if it isn’t well.
I could gush on and on about how much I love this song and what exactly I think it means for hours on end- but I’ll cut it short. Just know for that reason, and the simply breathtaking melody, this song will always be one of my all time favorites. I’m so happy that I got to share it with you all, and thanks for listening!
