Flyweight Love from such heights on Vimeo.



ride on
glide down
hide out
my flyweight love, flyweight love

took a train to the stubborn coast
off-season towns half shuttered
said hello to the rising breeze
made a note of the setting sun

we fell asleep in our three-day clothes
one tilted head on the other
felt a hand like the hand of god
heard a voice like a seed of song

ride on
glide down
hide out
my flyweight love, flyweight love

took a crowd down the avenue
to send a senator home right
going viral on the handheld screen
I’m the diode, you’re the kerosene

we’re separate circles in a crowded hall
debating this debating that and then another
and then the scent of you alighting on my shoulder
hey there, oh hi, hey there, oh hi, oh my

out loud, go on and sing it out loud
go on and sing it out loud
we wanna be a flyweight love, flyweight love

and now
the years surprise us
how all our times apart
have become our vows

took a flight far across the globe
found a calling sweet as a lover
through the wilderness you find in me
you are in love with all the world

and in the evening I arise
when the sun creeps on your covers
here I am
here you are

breathing a hello
my flyweight love, flyweight love

took a train to another coast
took our time and the time has flown
oh you never have belonged to me
or should I say not to me alone

MY PRECIOUS BABIES <33333 I love this so much, it's so happy - not all of it, because not everything about their relationship is happy, but there's true joy at the core of it. I LOVE IIIIT <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Oh, DARLINGS. This is so lovely! And (for me) it's so much about Jane, with her open-eyed enthusiasm, amazed at everything, "you are in love with all the world", oh, wonderful exploring-everywhere science-adoring sweetheart, oh, oh. The desert scenery makes me hear the kind-of country twang going on in the music all the more, which is excellent. She's just so happy! She has such a lovely face! And she's so excited by all the wonderful things in the world and she casts that same look at Thor and oh, that's so wonderful. *applause*

This video is so perfect! The song fits so perfect and the whole feeling of it fits Jane's way of viewing the world and her developing relationship with Thor. Well done!

This is lovely! Perfect song choice to combine their adorable fluffy romance with Jane's ongoing love affair with ALL THE SCIENCE.

Ahhh buddy I love this SO MUCH, I love how Jane's enthusiasm and curiosity shines through every moment of it, I love all of Thor's head-over-heels-for-her faces you captured, I love the whole movement and feel of it. It was like being given a three-minute joy hug :DDD

(Also some of the Asgard footage is not stuff I have seen! Does the UK DVD have cut scenes that the US doesn't ...?)

Here via [personal profile] glass_icarus. I love this - it's so joyful. Captures what I like about Jane/Thor as a pairing, how their strengths aren't the same and don't really even dovetail that well, but they can respect and admire and appreciate each other's strengths so much, and that's where they meet.

So I thought I commented on this ages ago but it appears I did not? Anyway it's wonderful, so sweet and gentle and full of their enthusiasm for the world/universe and each other. They have this kind of joy in seeing each other experience new things that comes through so strongly here and it is the MOST ADORABLE. <3

VERY belatedly replying to say that if you could send me the links for the deleted scenes that would be delightful!

I LOVE this. The vid is beautifully done, clear and sweet and rather touching. I hadn't thought of Thor in connection with this song, but it's a perfect fit. Thor and Jane do get sad about being apart, but it's so clear that the distance they cross to get to each other, and the surprise of seeing one another again, is part of the thrill of their relationship. "Oh hi, hey there, oh hi, oh my"--yep, that's Jane!

So after my Thor re-watch I had an urge and then realised I'd never commented,so, I still adore this, the song is such a perfect fit for them. Commenters above have said it for me, but I'll say it again, I love that this captures my favourite aspect of their relationship, namely that they just met and connected and just really like each other even though there's no obvious reason why they make sense as a pair. *_* (Explaining why one ships Jane/Thor is boring sometimes, like, do you just hate happiness? ;))

Also I need to watch the deleted scenes in Thor 2 sometime, I still haven't. Ditto Cap 2 actually.
