So, last week was girl's camp (a church thing). And I was having a pretty good time. It was hot of course, but it still was pretty fun. Anyway, on the second night, they had karaoke and stuff. Now, I've never done karaoke before. I'm not good at it, I haven't practiced at all. I sing a lot, but only in private at home, so karaoke would usually be very uncomfortable to me, and something I would decidedly not do at all.
But the power of Galneryus' songs tho, it made me get up. I had to share them. I was scared, terrified even, since they are a power-metal band, but I got up and stood in line. I really really wanted everyone to see the good side of metal. That passion is what made it possible for me to have the courage to do something like this.
So the beat dropped, the guitar started, and people cheered in support. I was so happy!!!! I sang with all my heart. My legs were shaking, and my voice too a little bit, but I kept going. And then in the middle of the song when the guitar riffs start for like a couple minutes, I pretended to play the guitar and head-banged. (I don't even know how I had the courage to do that.) And they cheered then too. It was awesome. And at the end, I even threw out the metal hand sign as I walked off.
My legs shook, and I felt weak afterwards, but I also felt so happy. It was amazing. I'm so glad they were supportive. Some leaders even said it was their favorite part of the night. <3
(Here's the song I sang, it was the only Galneryus song I could think of in the moment that had 100% english lyrics. I knew there's a couple more, but I couldn't think of them at the time.)
