Lyrics
Like the legend of the Phoenix

All ends with beginnings

What keeps the planet spinning

The force of love beginning



Oh we've come too far

To give up who we are

So let's raise the bar

And our cups to the stars



[Chorus:]

I'm up all night to the sun

He's up all night to get some

I'm up all night for good fun

He's up all night to get lucky

We're up all night to the sun

We're up all night to get some

We're up all night for good fun

We're up all night to get lucky [x5]



The present has no ribbon

Your gift keeps on giving

What is this I'm feelin'

If you wanna leave I'm ready, oh



Cause we've come too far

To give up who we are

So let's raise the bar

And our cups to the stars



[Chorus]



Oh we've come too far [x3]



Oh we've come too far to give up



Who we are

Who we are



[Chorus]

This amazingly captured the mix of cheesiness and love that makes GQ possibly the best Star Trek movie ever.

From: [personal profile] purplefringe
WOW. This is beautiful! It's so earnest and moving and captures all the sincerity of the film - I'm really impressed, because this is such a wacky comedy film, but you've drawn out all of the heart. <3 Also, I love how you've framed it, with the Omega 13 explosion, giving Jason time to look back over how far they've all come as he changes the past.

Date: 2017-05-02 04:22 am (UTC)
actiaslunaris: Yukawa Manabu - smiling fondly (solved it)
From: [personal profile] actiaslunaris
That frame was really important to me, because Jason is so defeated at the beginning, but so happy at the end, but he finds that happiness in belonging inside a team, one that he was seeking belonging in at the beginning. That sense of found family is what really makes the film for me. Thank you; I'm pleased you liked it!

Oh, that was just delightful! There was a (not overwhelming) thread of gravitas through that whole movie, and you've managed to show that in the video *perfectly*, without getting maudlin or sappy.

Just excellent!

See, this really makes me feel good, because I wanted to try for sappy and then scrapped that because I don't do sentimental. I'm glad that the approach I did use has the gravitas you saw in the film. Thank you.

Wonderful. I love the whole thing: how you begin/frame the vid, the "we've come too far/ to give up who we are" throughline, the spinning luck, all the lyric match-ups, music, everything. Unexpected, touching, and easily captivating for five minutes. And the title! Perfect. <3

First of all, I apologise for replying to this beautiful gift so late!

This is perfection, dear mysterious vidder! Thank you so much!! You brought out so beautifully the themes of friendship, courage, and hope, showing that this film is much more than just a campy spectacle. Also, you used my favourite version of "Get Lucky". <3

I'm likewise covered in apologies for replying to you late. Life, I swear.

I'm very pleased you enjoyed this. I did my best to work with you wanted and it was amazing to me personally to draw out those themes. The song is really beautiful and was a favorite of mine before I chose it, so it's very nice to hear it's your favorite version, too. Thanks so much for asking for a particular take on this film; it was a delight to work within that.
