Types: Filk
I'm not sure what prompted this - I was reading the forums whilst listening to the radio when the original song came on, and suddenly inspiration struck, pummelled me to the ground, sat on top of me and wouldn't let me up until I'd finished the filk. So here it is.

This is as sung by the surviving fanboy seen in Friday's comic, who'd better have a good singing voice for all our sakes, but especially Erika's. . Okay, especially for his own sake.

Don't Hide From Me Hayasaka

We may seem crazy, we may seem weird
But I'll try to explain how we feel
How we still feel your love even now that you're gone
And why we seek you
Whatever came of that girl we once knew
That voice so delightful and kind
Our quest is to seek out the truth

Why did you let it happen, what made you change?
Was our faith in you holding you caged?
Feeling trapped by our love for an image of you
Did you choose freedom?
Running away, starting out somewhere new
Did our fandom drive you away?
We never intended it to

Don't hide from me Hayasaka
The truth is we still adore you
Why did you vanish
Fade from existence
You're still our idol
Don't keep your distance

And what of fortune, and what of fame
Did they weigh too heavy on you?
Did they seem to demand you become someone else?
A mere illusion
Giving us the delusion we truly knew you
A picture we'd made in our minds
From glimpses and voices of you

Don't hide from me Hayasaka

Don't hide from me Hayasaka
The truth is we still adore you
Why did you vanish
Fade from existence
You're still our idol
Don't keep your distance

Do we ask too much?
Then we'll depart and nevermore will we trouble you
But all we ask before we go
Is that you'll simply let us know the truth

Don't hide from me Hayasaka
The truth is we still adore you
Why did you vanish
Fade from existence
I'll keep my promise
We'll keep our distance


Original song: Don't Cry For me Argentina

Lyrics:

It won't be easy, you'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love after all that I've done
You won't believe me
All you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she's dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you

I had to let it happen, I had to change
Couldn't stay all my life down at heel
Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun
So I chose freedom
Running around, trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it to


Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance


And as for fortune, and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seems to the world they were all I desired
They are illusions
They're not the solutions they promised to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you love me


Don't cry for me Argentina


Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance


Have I said too much?
There's nothing more I can think of to say to you
But all you have to do is look at me
To know that every word is true


Don't cry for me Argentina
