Little child, be not afraid
The rain pounds harsh against the glass
Like an unwanted stranger
There is no danger
I am here tonight

Little child
Be not afraid
Though thunder explodes
And lightning flash
Illuminates your tearstained face
I am here tonight

Little child
Be not afraid
The storm clouds mask your beloved moon
And its candlelight beams
Still keep pleasant dreams
I am here tonight

Little child
Be not afraid
The wind makes creatures of our trees
And the branches to hands
They're not real, understand
And I am here tonight

And someday you'll know
That nature is so
This same rain that draws you near me
Falls on rivers and land
And forest and sand
Makes the beautiful world that you see
In the morning

For you know, once even I
Was a little child
And I was afraid
But a gentle someone always came
To dry all my tears
Trade sweet sleep for fears
And to give a kiss goodnight

Well, now I am grown
And these days have shown
Rain's a part of how life goes
But it's dark and it's late
So I'll hold you and wait
'til your frightened eyes do close

And I hope that you'll know
That nature is so
This same rain that draws you near me
Falls on rivers and land
And forests and sand
Makes the beautiful world that you see
In the morning

Everything's fine in the morning
The rain will be gone in the morning
But I'll still be here in the morning.

Ohhh this is gorgeous! It's a little sadder than I was expecting to work with wee-Amelia (I normally focus on the ways in which she is sharp and bouncy and unflappable in terms of the omgluv) but this worked so well! And I love the song, which helps :) My favourite bits were the sequence with the stars, and the sixth verse - casting Amy as the "gentle someone always came" was just so right and oh. *sniff*

I love this so much! Wee Amelia!! Absolutely perfect song choice! The whole vid captures that sense of wonder and ethereal feeling of being a young child so well. It's so intimate and quiet and full of every bit of joy. I really really really loved the section in the middle during the instrumental, with the side-by-side star clips, oh. Beautiful!

!!! AW!!! This is so adorable and sweet and lovely, oh my goodness. The ending made me tear up, because, AMY! AMELIA! She doesn't have to lose her childhood protector and friend when she grows up/wakes up, aw aw aw. I adored the transitions you did with the stars/drawing of moon and stars/starry night - that was beautiful, and really communicated Amelia/Amy's wonder and imagination and power. I am seriously just so full of AWWW right now I cannot deal. What a fabulous song choice, and so well done. *hugs the vid tight*

What a fortunate marriage of a song and a vid. This has such bittersweet loveliness, and it makes me choke up a bit. Amy, the girl who waited, and the Doctor as a little child in fear in need of consoling (the switch to the Doctor on that verse is my favourite thing in the vid -- well, maybe only next to the ending.) Thank you for that.

That's beautiful. Slow and liquid and dreamlike, and it left me with a smile at the end.

Oh my, this was so very beautiful. It's a wonderful match of story and song, full of sadness and joy. And I am shedding tears because of that match.

Right after watching the finale, I went back to rewatch "The Eleventh Hour," trying to pull together the emotional threads to my own satisfaction (and failing). But now, you've done it for me. You've made Amy make sense (a strange and complicated sort of sense, but such a compelling, resonant one). Thank you for this.

I found you through a comment on Greensilver's journal, and... wow. Just amazing. I absolutely love this video. It's just so perfectly done, and so perfect for the story... and every single clip was chosen perfectly. You did an amazing job with this! Very well done!

This is such a beautiful vid! My favorite bit is definitely the transition from wee baby Amelia with the Doctor to the Doctor being the child with Amy for his grown-up, or the end where she can still have her imaginary friend when she's a grown-up in the morning. So much about what I love of this season's themes. <3

♥ ♥ ♥!! I actually beamed when you cut from Amy's stars to Vincent's. The way you wove together Amy's past, present, and future, along with the Doctor's fear and delight, was beautiful.

WANT MORE ICKLE!AMY, SHOW. PLEASE? I HAVE BEEN SO GOOD. :D

This was just recced on the Doctor Eleven community on LJ, and it is abolutely beautiful. I am all teary now. Having Amelia as a companion would have been the most amazing thing ever (not that I disliked Amy, she was also amazing, but still). Think I might download this now.

This is beautiful. I have always loved this song and it fits the relationship between Eleven and Amelia so perfectly. In the end, underneath it all, she looks to him to make things better (because he's the Doctor) and in the end, everything IS all right, just like he said it would be.
