Lyrics
I was like you and yes you were like me
We were so much alike but unique as can be
Friends til the end and we were quite the right team
Like those two men Aristotle and Averroes

It was a cold evening near the end of fall
That we made our acquaintance for nothing at all
But the common interest to make melodies
And little did we know the fine friends we would be

At first you spoke little and I said a lot
But in time you would trust me with the depth of your thought
And though we were only young men at the time
We had souls of the ancients with the youth left to climb

I was like you and yes you were like me
We were so much alike but unique as can be
Friends til the end and we were quite the right team
Like those two men Aristotle and Averroes

I was like you and yes you were like me
We were so much alike but unique as can be
Friends til the end and we were quite the right team
Like those two men Aristotle and Averroes

I was walking down the road many took
Studied all the classics learned all the great books
But I listened to the inspiration inside of me
And expected the least but had the courage to see

There was a time when the world didn't know
The way you could make a song from just a few notes
But never did you imagine, never did I
That with difference and some brilliance we'd come back to life

I was like you and yes you were like me
We were so much alike but unique as can be
Friends till the end and we were quite the right team
Like those two men Aristotle and Averroes

I was like you and yes you were like me
We were so much alike but unique as can be
Friends til the end and we were quite the right team
Like those two men Aristotle and Averroes

actiaslunaris: Yukawa Manabu - smiling fondly (solved it)
From: [personal profile] actiaslunaris
I've watched it three times, now, and each time I think I'm going to be okay, but then I start getting water in my eyes. I'm not crying! You're crying!

It took me a few seconds into it to realize it's from Data's point of view, and I just adore that. I don't know why I was expecting it to be from Picard's, but I think it works much better from Data's, as it draws out the emotion of their bond so much better.

All the similarities! All the misunderstandings, yet with all that gentle patience! Such excellent editing and choice of clips. I love the song, and what you've done with it, especially with the repeated line of 'I was like you, and yes, you were like me'.

There's so much sweetness and good feeling in this vid. I'm going to be smiling for the rest of the day when I think about it!

This is adorable, all Data modelling himself on Picard and then growing up learning to become like Picard in ways that don't involve imitation.

All my TNG feels! All of them! Such a great duo, and an excellent song for the two of them.

This is beautiful and lovely, and has made me even more excited to watch TNG! I have never seen it, but my flatmates are going to sit me down and watch it with me. This beautifully edited and heartfelt vid has made me look forward to that even more. :-D

Aww, I always did love their friendship and this vid really shows why.

Data and the relationship he had with Picard was always one of my favourite things about TNG and this vid sums up all the reasons why.

I grew up watching TNG, and I've always seen Picard as a kind of mentor for Data, a father figure, but your vid made me see their relationship in a different light. I really like the many parallels you drew between them and the way you framed their relationship on the more equal footing of friendship than I had previously interpreted it.

Oh my! I didn't even know I needed this vid until now. This was so delightful! And oh, my heart just about broke at the part with Picard as Borg. Just... this was so perfect! I love it, truly!

oh, that's just...I've got some sand in my eye or something.

What a touching encapsulation of how much these two learned from and meant to each other.

Aw, this is really lovely! I like the song choice and the "so much alike but unique as can be" premise, the learning from each other through thoughts and points of view, and then the clip choices for the ending especially made me smile.

I've just been pointed at this by a friend as relevant to my interests, and aaaaah, goodness, I LOVE it. It was the bit where Picard is Borg and Data is communicating with him that really gave me chills.
