180410120124 / F

Summary: Thomas is a child who is ignored by his parents because their parents focus to take care of his brother who suffers cancer disease. He does runaway from home and then he comes home again. Hear “They Ignored Thomas” first, and then “Cannot Believe”, and the last “Runaway and Coming Home”.

“They Ignored Thomas”

Blue eyes, blond hair
Home alone, no friend
Lean on, don’t care

He wonders no end
Oh, he’s not alright
His mom doesn’t care

And she said she’s worried about his bro
She takes care of him
So much spending time for him
The cancer disease is all the reason
Why she ignores him
He’s broken, his world now is so dark completely
Because uh, his father also does
The same thing with his mother does
They ignored Thomas, from now
And they focus only for young brother
Michael gets the attention
They ignored Thomas since the disease came
They ignored Thomas

He’s still alone
Sitting on a chair
Waiting for his mom

No longer, she comes
He wants to show something
He gets best score

And she said she’s worried about his bro
She takes care of him
So much spending time for him,
The cancer disease is all the reason
Why she ignores him,
He’s broken, his world now is so dark completely
Because oh, his father also does
The same thing with his mother does
They ignored Thomas, from now
And they focus only for young brother
Michael gets the attention
They ignored Thomas since the disease came
The disease came to his brother
There is no guiding light for him now
And he feels empty, alone
In his own home

And she said she’s worried about his bro
She takes care of him
So much spending time for him
The cancer disease is all the reason
Why she ignores him
He’s broken, his world now is so dark completely
Because oh, his father also does
The same thing with his mother does
They ignored Thomas, from now
And they focus only for young brother
Michael gets the attention
They ignored Thomas since the disease came
The diseases came
Came, came,
The disease came, came, came
They ignored Thomas

“Cannot Believe”

He goes to school and he’s feeling down
Pity boy walks alone wondering his fate
Today is the day of his performance
He shows off his action in a theater

He cannot believe they cannot see
He cannot believe they do not come
He cannot believe they do not care
That irritates him

Yeah He goes to school and he’s feeling down
Pity boy walks alone wondering his fate
Today’s the day of the final test
Now he’s just trying not doing for the best

Because he believes they will be fine
He also believes they care too much
He always believes he will be taught
It just a daydream

(Yeah) Get mad at him
They get mad at him

He expects things too much
He’s drowning too deep
The clouds turn to grey
Tears are falling down his face

He cannot believe they will do this
He cannot believe they do not care
He cannot believe they do not love
Like they used to in past time

Get mad at him
They get mad at him
He expects things too much
He’s drowning too deep
The clouds turn to grey
Tears are falling down his face

It’s a rainy day, the clouds are turning grey
Tears are falling down his face
He thinks too much that he’s useless child
They never need him

Get mad at him
They get mad at him
He expects things too much
He’s drowning too deep
The clouds turn to grey
Tears are falling down his face

“Runaway and Coming Home”

Thomas wakes up in the morning, it was dark
His world is dark he cannot see things right.
His parents go to the hospital, bring his bro
And he’s packing all his clothes into a baggage

Oh, He goes out taking bus, starting runaway from home
He goes to a place that he hasn’t been before
He looks around the street and he doesn’t know where to go
Where he is now, he doesn’t care too much.

And all the things he wants now,
He can go far away from home,
He thinks his parents never need
Him forever.

Tears are streaming down his face, he cannot restrain it.
He walks away alone carrying baggage on a street
It never crosses his mind he will be like this, he’s so sad.

Now he looks at his around children are laughing together
They seem happy with parents they love
He dreams to have life like them, he compares to his life
It’s unfair he never feels happy lately

And all the things he wants now,
He can go far away from home,
He thinks his parents never need
Him forever.

Tears are streaming down his face, he cannot restrain it.
He sits alone on a bench at a park he has never been
It never crosses his mind he will be like this, he’s so sad.

He is tired of this feeling and he remembers his home
He remembers all the happy moments with his family
He missed it he imagines how happy he was
In the past

Oh, his parents find and come to him, They are crying and regretting
About all mistakes that they have done to him before
He’s just shocked his brother never lives with him now
Oh his brother, Michael, he is he is he is… he’s dead.

Thomas still cannot believe this reality
He regrets all the envious to his brother He’s like to see his brother now, he wants to go home now.
And he cries a lot, he feels guilty to him.

His parents invited him to go back home
He promises not to do runaway again
He is coming home he is the only child
In the home

Now Thomas gets full attention of being a child
Their parents love him so much, they’re regretting their mistake
They live happily together as a
family

He misses his brother, oh he remembers
the kindness of his brother, he prays for him a lot
He is coming home, he’s the only child
coming home

    I love the story of the 3 songs that relate to each other. I think “they ignored Thomas” song is unique because the song is a sad story, but you chose a cheerful melody and music. The song “cannot believe” for a second song expressed anger but I think that you sound less angry expression, you should be more powerful to express what you want everyone knows about this song. Emotion in each song is different, I think you have to distinguish your power in each song. The power appears in the third song is like a climax at once an anticlimax too.

    I like the storyline of this song, which is great. Each story represent a truly conditions and I enjoy the song. The plot of the story in this song is make me sad. Each songs are still related with the next song lyric, overall its awesome. I think the song become more entertaining if in acoustic form. Perhaps the message of the song can be delivered accurately if in acoustic form, but its just a suggestion. Well I think diction and all element of this song are great and entertaining. Once more I like the happy ending of this song although should losing someone who is love by their parents, but the main character getting the attention fully from his parents.

    I give my praises for you Dini. Your songs are so amazing. I like whole of the songs. Whole songs are telling a story about Thomas’ life. I really like that. However, “Cannot Believe” is the most song that I like. The song that you chose for this song fits with the story which describing Thomas’ disaffection. And for me, it heard that I can feel Thomas’ felling. Moreover, the way you telling the story are so clear. The conflict is so clear for me; there is beginning, middle, and ending. Listening to your songs is like listening to a story telling. I think your songs are so good for children to listen. And the one more thing that I like from your songs is you made the songs based on basic case in a family. I really like your songs.

    I cannot believe that you can sing. The songs you sang are awesome! Three of them have clear plot. The diction you chose makes the story easy to understand. The repetition words also make these songs enjoyable. Compared to two songs, “They Ignored Thomas” and “Cannot Believe”, your last song, “Ranaway and Coming Home” is lack of power. When I was listening to your last song, it is shown clearly that you were too tired to sing it. “They Ignored Thomas” song has been my favorite song among the others because you sang it with full power. Overall, your songs are great, and I enjoyed listening to them.

    Wow, I really love this story and the song. You are so amazing. This song is so sad. It makes me think about people who suffered because of cancer. Your voice, your lyrics, are so wonderful.

    The story in this song is easy to understand. Listening your song made me imagine about a boy who is lonely and needed love from her family and other people. It makes me realize that I am a lucky girl who have a great family and people who love me.
    But, I think people who have cancer will get more attention and affection than people who doesn’t.
