The sky burns bright with a golden light,
Tonight on Gallifrey.
Hearts affirm what the mind knows,
That there is no other way.

Head races like the vortex that they put inside,
Couldn't keep it in, but I've always tried.

‘Don’t interfere, watch and observe',
Well what kind of way is that to learn?
‘Conceal yourself, remain unknown.’
Well I say ‘No!’

Watch me go, watch me go,
Can’t hold me back anymore.
Watch me go, watch me go,
Burn the bridge and slam the door.

I don’t care
What they’ll do to me.
Consequence may come,
Laws of time never made much sense actually.

When relativity
Makes everything seem small,
There’s endless destinations,
And you just have to see them all!

It’s time to see where I can go,
To test my limits; what I know.
No path, no plan, no rules for me,
Let’s spree!

Watch me go, watch me go,
I am one with all space and time.
Watch me go, watch me go,
My destiny is mine.

Here I stand,
And from here I flee.
Consequence may come…

The Tardis engines roar to life with a great sound.
Now it dematerializes as we leave the ground.
My lone thought that I am finally free at last.
One day I will come back…

But Gallifrey is my past!

Watch me go, watch me go,
As I run like a great stampede.
Watch me go, watch me go,
This renegade is free.

Here I am,
It’s a brand new me.
Consequence may come,
Laws of time never made much sense actually.
"Have you ever run away from something because you were scared, or not ready, or just... just because you could?"

"Once. A long time ago."


This is it everyone, the pièce de résistance of my parody writing binge, and I think I saved the best for last(entirely debatable though). Yes, I know this song has been covered and parodied to death(Doug Walker please don't be mad! xD), but I had the idea, which means I had to roll with it.

I think there's something beautiful and haunting about the Doctor leaving Gallifrey. Yes, later episodes retconned his reason for leaving, but I maintain that deep down, at the core of it, Gallifrey in all it's infinite magnitude, was just too small for the Doctor. He couldn't stay even if he wanted to. That's the leg that this song stands on. 

As always, I love feedback(even the negative stuff; no way I can grow if I don't know what I'm doing wrong) and questions, whether they're about the writing process, or an aspect of the show or just about me. So let me have it all!

link As per usual, I recommend putting the original on in the background as you sing this to yourself. Put yourself in the moment.

I might just have to memorise this. Then anytime someone starts to sing "Let it Go"...I'll confuse them by singing this. Because this is awesome! :D

I really appreciate that. The favorites as well. Especially on The (Eleventh)Doctor is Dying. That tells me you liked my one song enough to look at my other stuff, and for that I'm deeply flattered :)
