notes: Spoilers through 6x04. I said I'd make [livejournal.com profile] purplefringe a vid for her birthday, and this is the song and idea she gave me. This one took a village!

lyrics:

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by and you can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China

And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover

And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.

And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said "All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them"

But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust him
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.

Now Suzanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey
On our lady of the harbour
And she shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers

There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror

And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind.

This is fucking outstanding. Possibly my favorite POV shift in the history of vidding. I am in awe, and moved, and smiling.

Was linked here by someone and am glad, this is beautiful! Doctor/TARDIS and Leonard Cohen--not an easy thing to manage, but this is lovely.

This is gorgeous and so, so moving. It's pretty much the perfect tribute vid to "The Doctor's Wife." The slow pace of the song works well for the ancient partnership between the Doctor and his TARDIS, and the yearning is great for this episode, when they finally interact in a way they never have before. I love how you included all the other Doctors and a wealth of companions, making this a truly epic love story.

Something wonderful here! This is really incredible, from music choice to execution and the interplay of all the different Doctors makes an epic symphony. I'll be remembering this for a long time to come.

This was absolutely glorious. I beamed the whole way through. I adore your every-Doctor montages especially, and the way you make Idris-TARDIS part of it without having her be the only representation we get with Eleventy was wonderful.
