Thanks to Terabrite for mixing the audio and color correction, Patrick Mazzalo for After Effects, Olga Kay for filming, and myself for singing and playing piano
This song sounds dramatic but I'm bad at writing words. If you don't speak English, this probably sounds pretty good.
You'd probably think I'm singing bout some pretty serious stuff. But in reality, I'm singing 'bout the lack of stuff i'm singing 'bout.
This part's intense. And emotional. As long as you don't understand it.
Your foreign grandma would love this song.
Please send it to her, and she'll probably tell her foreign friends about the song her grandson or daughter sent her today.
This song might hit the charts in her country if parts sounded like Coldplay.
If the chorus sounds like Coldplay.
Then I put some 'La-La-La's in there. La la la la la, la la la la la la la (Coldplay)
Hopefully your foreign grandma listens to this song everyday. And if she asks you to translate the lyrics, here's what you say:
"A perfect translation does not exist. Well, at least, not in your language. But if you must know, well, picture this: Fifty billion rainbows, and the sun is setting, and the moon is setting, also, and you're there in a gazebo. And then God descends from heaven and He gives you a million dollars. Take that feeling, and put it into a song. I could translate word by word, but that'd take too long. And I've got stuff to do grandma. I don't have time for this. You've gotta trust me grandma, this freakin' song is brilliant."
