Title of vid: Finding My Voice
Recipient: rhivolution
Vidder: jacquelee
Fandom: Bend it Like Beckham
Music: Read all about it by Emeli Sande
Summary: Jess finds her voice, her strength to go against her parents and do what she really wants to do. I planned this as an AU video, where Jess and Jules both go against their abusive parents to do what they want to do. They fall in love with each other on the way and in the end go away together. You can still read it this way, but it very much works in the context of canon too.

Lyrics
You've got the words to
change a nation but
you're biting your tongue.

You've spent a lifetime
stuck in silence afraid
you'll say something wrong.

If no one ever hears it, how
we gonna learn your song?
so come on come on, come on
come on.

you've got a heart as
loud as lions so why let
your voice be tamed?

Maybe we're a little
different, there's no
need to be ashamed.

you've got the light to fight
the shadows so stop hiding
it away
come on, come oooon.

i wanna sing
i wanna shout.

i wanna scream till
the words dry out

so put it in all of the
papers, i'm not
afraid.

They can read all
about it, read all about it

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
oh ooooh

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
oh ooooh

At night we're waking
up the neighbours while
we sing away the blues.

Making sure that we're
remembered yeah,
cause we all matter too

if the truth has been forbidden,
then we're breaking all the rules
so come on come on, come on
come on

Let's get the TV and
the radio to play our
tune again,
it's bout time we got
some airplay of our
version of events

There's no need to be afraid,
i will sing with you my
friend
come on come on

i wanna sing
i wanna shout.

i wanna scream till
the words dry out

so put it in all of the
papers, i'm not
afraid.

They can read all
about it, read all about it

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
oh oh ooooh

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
oh oh ooooh

Yeah we're all wonderful,
wonderful people
so when did we all get so
fearful?

Now we're finally finding
our voices
so take a chance come help
me sing this

Yeah we're all wonderful,
wonderful people
so when did we all get so
fearful?

and now we're finally finding
our voices
so take a chance come help
me sing this

i wanna sing
i wanna shout.

i wanna scream till
the words dry out

so put it in all of the
papers, i'm not
afraid.

They can read all
about it, read all about it

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
oh oh ooooh

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
oh oh ooooh

i wanna sing
i wanna shout.

i wanna scream till
the words dry out

so put it in all of the
papers, i'm not
afraid.

They can read all
about it, read all about it

Ohhhhh

Oh, my dear Festividder, I do love this so! Your song choice is excellent and haunting me a little--it fits so well with either the canon or your AU idea (it's bout time we got some airplay of our version of events...augh, perfect).

Thank you so much for reminding me how much I love this film and its friendship/slashy sweetness and triumph!

This is so, so lovely. I love the determination in the song, and this has such a clear sense of Jess's journey and fierceness.

So much femslashy goodness! I particularly liked the way you put the football-playing clips to the music -- it gave it a very epic emotional feel.

Aw, YES. I love the song choice for this, the build in determination and joy. Finding our voices is such a great image for them and I love how you put the dynamic football footage together with all the scream/sing/shout lyrics. Also 'come help me sing this' and all the scenes between the two of them! And I really liked the coda you chose, with the picture proudly displayed.
