[filk] largo's broken dreams on wonderwall

Hah,
cidjen's imagination barf theater present

Largo's broken dreams (to the tune of Greenday's Boulevard of Broken Dreams and I can't get the Greenday x Oasis Wonderwall song out of my head too...)

I walk the lonely road
The only road that I have never known
Don't know where it goes
But it's only me and I walk alone

(Today, is gonna be the day
that i'm gonna throw it up on you
By now, you should have somehow
realized what you gotta do)

I walk the packed street
On the boulevard of broken bones
Where the zombies sleep
And I'm the only one, and I walk alone

(Backbeat, the word was on the street,
that the fire in your heart was out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
But you've never really had a doubt)

My Em-Gee's only gonna walk beside me
My drunken head's the only thing's that's beating
I really wish someone out there will find me
till then, I'll walk alone

(And all the roads I have to walk are winding
And all the lights in arcades are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you
But I dunno how...)

(t/n: this was Largo's head before Boo tripped him in front of Junko)

It needs to be either "wish someone... would find me", or "hope someone... will find me."

But having said that I can produce no explanation of why that is the case, which I find deeply shameful, my apologies. :( I could mumble something vague about the irrealis mood (compare "I wish I had a pony" vs. "I hope I get a pony") but you're better off googling that yourself if so inclined, I would probably do more harm than good at this point.

Other than that, nice work, thanks for sharing. :D

:) I kept the words of the original here, hence the 'will'.
