Thanks to ScootaLewis! As always, it was wonderful working with you (even though we didn't start this song until the day it was due).
Another Toastbeard entry, this time from ZIQ53 (The theme was the background character of our choice having a breakdown or crisis). ScootaLewis wrote and performed a sympathetic song about Trixie's regret and hardships following the events of episode 6. He wrote every word through "no one hears you" and I did the added instrumental and the last few words at his suggestion.
Lyrics! Alone in the rain The sound of the crowd fills your head You remember the things that they screamed and they said The things that you don't want to let Keep you down, you're beset By a wave of regret
You've got nothing left; Barely have bits to get by And you ask yourself why as You break down and cry Over all that you lost on that day In that town on the way To a larger stage
What was her name? The one who has shattered your fame With no thought to the shame Or unbearable pain And the sting of rejection remains To remind you again Of the end of your reign
Out of your mind No-one remembers your name Just a face in the rain An expression of pain So you sit and you think about life And you look at the sky And continue to cry...
And no-one hears you crying out for mercy The way they treat you never fails to hurt me There is always room here for the worst offenders, please remember
