The same themes preside in Brother To Brother, seeing yourself in an older queer person. It's about self discovery and learning from the past. Perry's "Ring Of Keys" moment is when they are painting together and I wanted to show the sharp similaraties between James and Perry.
Content notes: Physical triggers (e.g., epilepsy or migraine: strobe lights, bright lights, "stuttery" cuts between 2-3 stills), self-harm+ gay bashing

Lyrics
Someone just came in the door.

Like no one I ever saw before.

I feel...

I feel...



I don't know where you came from.

I wish I did

I feel so dumb.

I feel...



Your swagger and your bearing

and the just right clothes you're wearing

Your short hair and your dungarees

And your lace up boots.



And your keys oh

Your ring of keys.



I thought it was s'pposed to be wrong

But you seem okay with being strong

I want...to...

You're so...



It's probably conceited to say,

But I think we're alike in a certain way

I...um...



Your swagger and your bearing

and the just right clothes you're wearing

Your short hair and your dungarees

And your lace up boots.



And your keys oh

Your ring of keys.



Do you feel my heart saying hi?

In this whole luncheonette

Why am I the only one who see you're beautiful?



[Spoken]

No, I mean



[Sung]

Handsome!



Your swagger and your bearing

and the just right clothes you're wearing

Your short hair and your dungarees

And your lace up boots.



And your keys oh

Your ring of keys.



I know you

I know you

I know you

This is so great! I really enjoyed the way you drew their connections to each other, the way they recognized each other through time. And that last shot with the paintings - yes! Thanks you so much!

I don't know the source but you told these two characters' stories very clearly with your song choice -- two people at very different stages of life connecting through that flash of familiarity.

The scenes of gay bashing both in the past and present set to the crescendo of "your ring of keys" felt dissonant in a really meaningful way, that the marker that these men bear which helped them find each other also makes them targets of hate and violence.
