Lyrics
It was just the beginning

I think that I was meant to be next to you, to you

On this planet spinning

I think that I was meant to be next to you, to you

And you know I found the dust to be resilient

And we're the dirtiest of the dirt

Every time we fall to pieces

We build something new out of the hurt

And we can never come back to earth

To earth, to earth, to earth, to earth

We can never come back to earth, to earth, to earth



Are you living your life or just waiting to die?

The bright, the bright, the bright

The brightest things fade the fastest

All my life, the bright, the bright, the bright

The brightest things fade out the fastest

Whoa, whoa, whoa

The brightest things fade the fastest

Whoa, whoa, whoa

The brightest things fade the fastest



Whoa, whoa, whoa

Whoa, whoa, whoa



This is a crooked path

I think that I was meant to be next to you, to you

We can never come back (we can never come back)

I think that I was meant to be next to you, to you

And you know I found the dust to be resilient

And we're the dirtiest of the dirt

Every time we fall to pieces

We build something new out of the hurt

And we can never come back to earth

To earth, to earth, to earth, to earth

We can never come back to earth, to earth, to earth



Are you living your life or just waiting to die?

The bright, the bright, the bright

The brightest things fade the fastest

All my life, the bright, the bright, the bright

The brightest things fade out the fastest

Whoa, whoa, whoa

The brightest things fade the fastest

Whoa, whoa, whoa

The brightest things fade the fastest

(Fastest)



The brightest things fade the fastest

Whoa, whoa, whoa

The brightest things fade the fastest

Whoa, whoa, whoa

The brightest things fade the fastest

The brightest things fade the fastest

The brightest things fade the fastest

SCREAMING A LOT RIGHT NOW thank you so much for this!!!!!! Edge of Tomorrow was pretty much my favorite film from last year and this vid captures all of the excitement of the concept (which really comes across in the use of intercutting + the lyrics fit so well). I love the relationship dynamic between Cage and Rita (RITAAAA) and just. YES. SO MUCH FANTASTIC ACTION EDITING - the song fits the source so well, tone-wise and lyrics-wise. And I love the moments when the vid slows down, ex) bringing in the television footage and that perspective on how Rita and Cage become the people they are. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME. Gonna need to watch this so many times right now. :D

Hee, I'm so glad you liked it! Cage and Rita are great. THEIR FACES. :D And thank you--I'm proud of the editing, and it's a high compliment that you liked it too!

Wow, that was great! I loved that juxtapositions of Cage waking up at the start of every day with Rita shooting/killing him at the end of the very same days. *g*

Thank you! The repetition of Cage getting shot was actually the first thing that made me think that this movie would work for this style of vid. :D

LOVED IT. What a great summary of the movie (and set to Patrick Stump's voice to boot!). I'm going to be rewatching this one a lot.

Yeah, I'd hoped the song would be what I wanted before the album came out, and then as soon as I heard it, I knew it was exactly right. Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

The storyline went over my head, but I didn't care, this was so cool.

The storyline is…somewhat complicated in the movie, too, and the vid also mixes things up a little. I'm glad you enjoyed it anyway!

Ohh, that was some fabulous dynamic editing. Many moments that I loved, the first 'to earth' bit, the bridge after 1:20, the perfectly timed eye-brow raise later on before it goes into 'are you living your life' again...

Tom Cruise's facial expressions don't get enough credit, particularly in this movie--he plays really well against Rita for just that reason, and I enjoyed getting the chance to try to showcase that part of the movie. Thank you!

Really slick & well-edited, I don't know the source (yet), but this helped solidify my desire to see it sooner rather than later.

The movie didn't do well at the box office (because these days making $100 million isn't doing well), but I liked it quite a lot. I'm glad you liked the vid!

Ahahah you sold me on this song choice so hard. Love the choices you about which part of the music to cut on, like Rita's gunshots.
