Never Ending Story - New Found Glory



When I was just a little kid, I heard of a story with this title. It was told in our language so I am not sure if some of you have heard of it on your own version. This is not the movie that most of us have seen but it was about the master and his servant.

I translated it from the way I understood it although I haven't heard of it for quite a long time already, perhaps 20 years. However when the song of the same title is played on my ipod, I can't help but remember the story.

The story started with...

Nung unang panahon... (I mean)... Once upon a time, there was a Kingdom and there lived the king and his servants. The king ordered a war against another kingdom.

One night, the master sargeant together with his soldiers and servants were resting in a camp.

The master went outside the tent and lighted a cigarrette. The servant followed him and asked, "Master, you can't sleep?" Then the master nodded his head.

"I cannot sleep too" said the servant. He continued, "Master, can you tell me a story?"

"Certainly" said the master. The master started the story....

Once upon a time, there was a Kingdom and there lived the king and his servants. The king ordered a war against another kingdom.
(Just read the story above and continue telling the Never Ending Story)

Okay, that's about it. When I first heard of it, I really thought it was silly to have never ending story and when the above story was told, I really thought it would never end. I think I just walked away from the person who was telling that story or I just covered my ears. I realized, it was non-sense listening to a story that I have already heard a thousand times.

I could bear watching or listening to a story the third, even the fourth time but not a dozen times more and more.

This is my version of the Never Ending Story. I have watched the movie about a flying big creature with kids on his back but I can no longer recall the beginning or ending of that story. Once I am done schooling, I will watch those movies again, and those TV series I failed to watch.

Thanks for reading.

Here is the lyrics of the song
NEVER ENDING STORY

Turn around, look at what you see, yeah
In her face, the mirror of your dreams, whoa
Make believe I'm everywhere, hidden in the lines
Written on the pages is the answer to our neverending story
Neverending story

Reach the stars, and fly a fantasy, yeah
Dream a dream, and what you see will be, yeah yeah yeah
Lives that keep their secrets will unfold behind the clouds
And there upon the rainbow is the answer to our neverending story
Neverending story
Story
Neverending story

(GO!)
Show no fear, for she may fade away, yeah
In your hand, the birth of a new day, yeah yeah yeah
Lives that keep their secrets will unfold behind the clouds
And there upon the rainbow is the answer to our neverending story

[3x:]
Nevending story
Whoa whoa whoa whoa

I don't really know how'd you react to this but I thought it would be a source of a few, even a tiny laugh.

Again, thanks for reading any how.
