A Minecraft love story...

lyrics

Ten thousand blocks away, Ten thousand blocks away
I don't know why she went so far, why she chose to build
Ten thousand blocks away

I started off punching trees for her because, I didn't even have a tool to use but
I did-what-I-could with what I had and I had my fists, I used 'em 'til they bled man I broke my wrists
I was gettin' her materials so she could build, a pretty house with a roof and some window sills
I didn't know her very well but I thought what the hell, she sounded nice over vent - I don't regret the time spent

Farming trees 'till the sun came up man, I decimated the forest with nothin' but my hands,
I should've made an axe to do the job, but I was a noob and I did not want to stop
So when I handed her a hundred stacks of wood blocks, she looked at me and told me to get lost
She started replanting trees that very morning, she told me I contributed to global warming

Ten thousand blocks away, Ten thousand blocks away
I don't know why she went so far, why she chose to build
Ten thousand blocks away

I built a castle in the middle of the map, It was the tallest on the server, no one could deny that
Stairs runnin' down from the top to the ground, and trophies on display from the dungeons I had found
They came from far and wide to view the work of my hands, There was nothing to compare with it across the lands
It was such a magnificent sight, I worked long and hard and I knew I did it just right

I spent some time on a particular room, with a nice skylight so she could see the moon
I built the whole thing out of pretty pink wool, with some purple thrown in to make it seem really artful
The whole place was a girly-girl's dream, as far as females go it was the perfect color scheme
except when came in she said she didn't even like pink, she burned it down and then I started to shrink

Ten thousand blocks away, Ten thousand blocks away
I don't know why she went so far, why she chose to build
Ten thousand blocks away

All I wanted was for her to be close, every day for her I'd pick a beautiful rose
and run ten thousand blocks all the way to her place, just to leave it on her doorstep but it was a disgrace because
I built road from her house to my town, she told me it was creepy and she tore it all down
I mined a stack of diamonds and I put it in her chest, then she told me to get out, it made me so depressed

I set out on a mission to kill any zombies, that approached her place and I did it with ease but
she told me she would rather have a creeper explode, than have me around, I felt so alone
So here I am sittin' all alone in my castle, I've decide to give up, she's not worth the hassle
From time to time you'll see me staring out my window, 'cause I fell in love and I want her to know...

Ten thousand blocks away, Ten thousand blocks away
I don't know why she went so far, why she chose to build
Ten thousand blocks away
