Lyrics
Oh my god
What have I done
Chasing some mirage in my Mojave sun
Don't say every chance is lost,
Please don't say anything at all

In sand and thorns
I'm walking forth
Bare and blinking as the day that I was born
Bells in spires of China white
Ring for an Augustine tonight

Oh now, I'm breaking down
Oh let me be
Let me be your Augustine

Lead me now
I understand
Faith is both the prison and the open hand
Bells on low on high
Will you ring for Augustine tonight

Oh now I'm breaking down,
Every illusion in between
All the lies that I have seen
Oh let me be your Augustine

Oh, this is marvelous! The whole vid is lovely but I particularly love the part where Maleficent gets back her wings paralleled with Aurora waking up. It packs an emotional punch! And I love the song you choose. Thank you so much for this wonderful gift! I will rewatch it many times.

What a beautiful vid! I got chills when Maleficent stepped into the light on "Let me be your Augustine." And I thought the moments you interspersed flashbacks to Maleficent's childhood were so poignant. I was going to quote all the lines where I couldn't believe how well the song lyrics matched the story, and then I realized I was going to quote the whole song lol.

Thank you so much! As soon as I heard the song I knew this had to be the vid, it just fit so well. :-)

Holy shit, this is incredible. I've got goosebumps. (That 'let me be your Augustine' at the end when Maleficent gets her wings back and Aurora wakes and Maleficent steps forward OH MY GOD.)

I'm so sorry, this is not the in-depth comment this vid deserves, but it's just SO GOOD.

(Edited to add I've now watched it 3 times, it's just SO GOOD.)

Wow, this is gorgeous and captures the emotion of Maleficent's relationship with Aurora so wonderfully. I loved the parallel of her looking through the window watching baby Aurora with her looking through the glass watching Philip fail to awaken Aurora. <3

Wow, this is stunning. I love the flashbacks, the constant contrast of past and present (truth and lies, faith/love and deception) and your editing is gorgeous. It really makes the most of Maleficent and Aurora's relationship <3

Thank you so much! This was the first time I've done a movie vid that didn't just follow the story linearly, so I'm glad it worked for you!

This was so, so lovely. Your use of the lyrics is just fantastic, bringing out (for me, anyway) meanings both of the words and of the scenes that hadn't occurred to me before. The flashbacks are so great, giving all this insight into how Maleficent's past has led her to particular moments. You've also made great use of all the most affecting visuals from the movie. Really, just a fantastic vid.

Thank you so much, this is such a lovely comment! Usually for short movie sources like this I end up with just a sequential summary vid, so I'm really glad the flashbacks and skipping around worked for you. :-)
