Is It Really So Strange from such heights on Vimeo.



I left the North
I travelled South
I found a tiny house
And I can't help the way I feel

Oh yes, you can kick me
And you can punch me
And you can break my face
But you won`t change the way I feel
'Cause I love you

And is it really so strange?
Oh, is it really so strange?
Oh, is it really so, really so strange?
I say no, you say yes
But you will change your mind

I left the South
I travelled North
I got confused - I killed a horse
I can't help the way I feel
Oh yes, you can punch me
And you can butt me
And you can break my spine
But you won't change the way I feel
'Cause I love you

And is it really so strange?
Oh, is it really so strange?
Oh, is it really so, really so strange?
I say no, you say yes
And you will change your mind)

I left the North again
I travelled South again
And I got confused - I killed a nun
I can't help the way I feel
(I lost my bag in Newport Pagnell)

Why is the last mile the hardest mile?
My throat was dry, with the sun in my eyes
And I realised, I realised
I could never
I could never, never, never, go back home again

\o/ Hurrah! It is everything I dreamed and more! The ending choice is perfect, I think - it really gets the bittersweet aspect.

I'll never get my Remix done now, curses! I am only fit to run around in circles, squeeing at my cat.

So very well-edited!

I was impressed that you managed to use the shots of Merlin walking to Camelot from the pilot in the intro without it feeling cliche, which I think is quite a feat in a Merlin/Arthur vid. And I especially liked how well you develop Merlin's POV in the vid with a lot of shots of his facial reactions. The last image was perfect!

Oh, this is adorable. And, I find that it speaks to some of the less angsty, but still complicated parts of the Merlin/Arthur relationship.

But, mostly: adorable boys ♥
