Hey everyone! First upload in ages. This ones a treat. Just last night I was singing along to still alive (which I know off by heart. =3) and I was playing minecraft at the sametime and (and yes I do have the portal gun mod, so if you don't know it i suggest you take a look =D), and then my friend Truluv13 on MSN says something about 'still mining' and suddenly, massive lightbulb moment.
At that time, I had to do this and hence combine Still Alive, with minecraft situations to create this piece.
Note that GLADoS sings this up an octave or so... except cause I sound really strange if i try to sing it up in a sqeaky GLADoS voice I had to sing it down, which hence gives space for these annoying fails I like to call 'low note farts' (lol) mainly cause i can't get right down there. So in the odd spot it you might get a dodgey low note, but heck I enjoyed putting this together and it's only meant to show the lyrics in a better way than on data.
If anyone would like to take a shot at these lyrics who can sing it better, by all means, shoot me some cred, take the lyrics and go for your life, as long as you say the lyrics were crafted by me. (excuse the minecraft reference).
So in all, ENJOY! and make a note that, despite knowing the original song very well, I have not played Portal at all (due to crappy computer and me not getting it). and only seen videos...
this was a triumph
I'm digging around here with, huge success.
it's hard to overstate my satisfaction.
Down here in minecraft.
We dig and we craft, because, we can.
For the good of survival
from that hostile dark night
Now there's no sense crying over every broke tool
you just keep on mining till you lose like a fool.
and the creepers all die, and you let out a sigh
and be thankful you are, still alive.
I'm not even angry
cause this world goes on, for ages yet.
even though my diamond fell in lava
and so did my items
when I got sparta'd by a mob
as I burnt it hurt so much, but I had plenty of spares.
Now these minecart tracks all make a beautiful line
and they're out of alpha, so it's Beta's start time.
So I'm glad I got home, look at all this cobblestone
so I'll use cause I'm, still alive.
I'm getting bored now
I think that it's time to say goodbye
to this base I've worked on since I started
I'll bring what I'm needing
then set off into the dawn
where I'll go I just don't know
but I've got diamonds and cake...
But this won't be the last time I'll see this fine home
cause I've got minecarts and tracks to chart the unknown
so I'll move out in a run
and i'm sure it will be fun
just gotta make sure I am, still alive
and believe me I'll be, still alive
I've got diamonds and I'm, still alive
I'm in the nether I'm, still alive
I got creeped and I am, still alive
even when dead I will be, still alive
