Lyrics
In the spring, we made a boat

Out of feathers, out of bones

We set fire to our homes

Walking barefoot in the snow



Distant rhythm of the drum

As we drifted towards the storm

Baby lion lost his teeth

Now they're swimming in the sea



Troubled spirits on my chest

Where they laid to rest

The birds all laughed, my tall friend

As your body hit the sand



A million stars up in the sky

Formed a tiger's eye

That looked down on my face

Out of time and out of place



So hold on

Hold on to what we are

Hold on to your heart



Awakened by the sound

Of a screaming owl

Chasing leaves in the wind

Going where we've never been



Said goodbye to you, my friend

As the fire spread

All that's left are your bones

That will soon sink like stones



So hold on

Hold on to what we are

Hold on to your heart

This is beautiful and yearning and I love it! So many Strange/Arabella feelings, and it so beautifully captures the deeply sinister magical world of this story.

Wow, this is so beautiful. It's almost like Of Monsters and Men were made for this canon, there's a strangeness to their sound (and their videos) that really fits here. Pain and strength and love and fear and beauty, it's all here.

I like how languid the beginning with the pick up in pace starting with J on the beach.

That "drifted towards the storm" bit with the "swimming in the sea" lyric use was lovely.

I like what you did with the episodes too. The characters feel very spread out and even. I remember watching the show and wondering why characters were absent from the storyline for so long, but this vid feels like it reorders things to make characters stand out more. If that makes sense.

What a gorgeous, lush, precisely edited vid! I haven't seen the source but I felt a lot of nuance in this. Sinister and atmospheric.

I really need to get around to watching this! I'm sure I missed a lot but this was beautifully atmospheric and engrossing regardless.

I've only read the book (this vid makes me want to watch the show!), and you definitely managed to capture the atmosphere really well. Lovely editing, too.

I've only seen a few minutes of this series so I assumed your vid would focus on the characters I saw (who seemed to be the main characters, to be fair, like it was either Jonathan Strange or Mr. Norrell, ya know?) so I was pleasantly surprised that you focused on the ladies?? And your song choice was spot on, Of Monsters and Men have such a mystical/fairy tale vibe to their music that you used to your advantage here for sure. There's such arresting imagery here, I was really transfixed from start to finish. Well done!
