lyrics:

I'm at your back door
With the earth of a hundred nations in my skin
You won't recognize me
For the light in my eyes is strange

It was years ago, God knows
When you strained to tell me your whole truth
That you were not mine to save
That you could not change

Would it be enough to go by
If we could sail on the wind and the dark
Cut those chains in the middle of the night
That had you pulled apart

Would it be enough to go by
If there's moonlight pulling the tide
Would it be enough to live on
If my love could keep you alive

I've built a lot of castles
I've built a lot of blazing speed-of-light machines
But it doesn't matter, you know
They all crumble in the winds of change

So I turned back to breathing
I learned a few good reasons to cry
And I finally called home
Praying you weren't out of range

Carry the weight
I'll carry the weight of you, I swear
Carry the weight
I'll carry the weight of you

Would it be enough to go by
If we could sail on the wind and the dark
Cut those chains in the middle of the night
That had you pulled apart

Would it be enough to go by
If there's moonlight pulling the tide
Would it be enough to live on
If my love could keep you alive

So will you let me come in
Mosquitoes have found me
And they're crowding 'round my blood
At least offer me a drink
Or a breaking of the ice
I'm wanting your anger
I only want to see if I can shake you out of sleep
And bring you out under this flooded sky
At any price

So carry the weight
Carry the weight of me in your heart
Carry the weight
Carry the weight of me

Would it be enough to go by
If we could sail on the wind and the dark
Cut those chains in the middle of the night
That had you pulled apart

Would it be enough to go by
If there's moonlight pulling the tide
Would it be enough to live on
If my love could keep you alive

Well that was lovely! My favorite was the Amy and Rory parts, not going to lie. I love the whole idea of Amy as the glue for them all. Very nice!

I especially love the little scrunchy face she does right at the end.

POOOONNNNDDDDSSSS!!!1!

I love how coherent you make Amy's arc seem?!?! I love how you depict her relationship with the Doctor, first the waiting and the magic and then the utter love. And you totally broke my heart with the Rory "I'll carry the weight of you"-bit because yes that is Amy, and they just love each other so much! And River and the drink and the change and the everything, AURGH!

So what if you've vidded Amy to Vienna Teng three times when the lyrics are this bloody perfect for it! And now I've been reminded of the others, I think I'll go cue them all up and have some feels.

(PS: The first ~30 seconds of the YouTube video lacks subtitles; they kick in a bit late? JFYI.)

This is absolutely lovely. It makes me want to go and rewatch all of Eleventy's seasons. Also, Doctor Who/Vienna Teng's music is pretty much my OTP, thanks in no small part to you. :)

This was gorgeous. A little sad, but hopeful and beautiful too.

This was wonderful, I love it ! I particularly liked the Amy & River bits, especially at "winds of change" and "reasons to cry".

::happy flail::

OMG, I love them all so much.

All the ways in which Amy has saved the Doctor, even though he can't be saved. And the bit where they're all turning, around a minute and a bit! And all the hugs! And oh, God, Amy holding baby River. I can't even. Rory holding her. OH MY HEART. If my love could keep you alive -- Rory waiting by the Pandorica. And River, with the glass of wine. OH MY HEART, did I say that?

And "DOCTOR." And "HELLO SWEETIE."

OH MY GOD MY HEART. And Amy's love for their daughter. And River's love for her mother. And their love for the Doctor. And Amy's love for Rory. And OMG THE ENDING.

I'm sorry, I'm abusing capslock, I -- I just love them. And this vid is all of the reasons why. Oh, thank you! ♥

How beautifully put together this is, and how wonderful the River section was (it actually gave me even more love for the River-Amy relationship than I already had, and I wasn't sure that was humanly possible.) And Amy and Rory - waaauuughhh, I shall miss them so terribly - you illustrated magnificently. And of course, Amy and the Doctor, the beginning of each relationship, even the Doctor's and River's.

Thanks so much for the work you put into this!

Aww this made me tear up, so many feels! Great song choice, and love the narrative line of the ponds as told here. <3
