Father
Its not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
Youre still young, thats your fault,
Theres so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but Im happy.

I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy,
To be calm when youve found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything youve got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

Son
How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again.
Its always been the same, same old story.
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.
Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

Father
Its not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it slowly.
Youre still young, thats your fault,
Theres so much you have to go through.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but Im happy.
(son-- away away away, I know I have to
Make this decision alone - no)
Son
All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
Its hard, but its harder to ignore it.
If they were right, Id agree, but its them you know not me.
Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.
(father-- stay stay stay, why must you go and
Make this decision alone? )

Oh wow, I'm really loving the colours. It gives off a very twilighty type of environment and there's a chilling mood to it somewhat.

Awesome.

If I may ask, how much did you emphasize/create those colors on photoshop/another editing program? I don't really care for fake photography (it should be categorized as photomanipulation then).

--But could this possibly be the Northern Lights???

I do not normally comment on deviations, but I have to agree with those below... the colors in this piece really caught my eye, they are absolutely beautiful. It is a bit too blurry for my liking, though... a little more detailing where you would least expect it would be nice I think... Otherwise, I feel eerily satisfied when looking at this work. Very nice. :)
