Walking through the forest
and feeling really brave
I stumbled in a giant hole and fell into a cave
As darkness seemed to swallow me
and fear began to grow
I wondered If I'd find my way
No light could I behold

I yelled aloud through darkness' shield
The sound bounced here and there
My voice was carried far from me
It echoed everywhere

Unusual conditions
I yelled just like before
It seemed my voice repeated on
and traveled even more

Frustrated and uncertain
I yelled just one more time
The sound went on and on again
As if it had rewind

'Let go of my echo,' I screamed!
