Dramatic Song, by Toby Turner


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 about
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'll 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 every day
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
50 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 million dollars
Tale that feeling and put it into a song

I could translate word for word but that'd take too long
And I've got stuff to do Grandma
I don't have time for this
You gotta trust me Grandma
This freaking song is brilliant
