lyrics:

Blue blue caravan
Winding down to the valley of lights
My true love is a man
Who would hold me for ten thousand nights
In the wild wild wailing of wind
He's a house 'neath a soft yellow moon.
So blue blue caravan
Won't you carry me down to him soon

Blue blue caravan
Won't you drive away all of these tears
For my true love is a man
That I haven't seen in years
He said, "Go where you have to
For I belong to you until my dying day."
So like a fool, blue caravan
I believed him and I walked away.

Oh my blue blue caravan
The highway is my great wall
For my true love is a man
Who never existed at all

Oh he was a beautiful fiction
I invented to keep out the cold
But now, my blue blue caravan
I can feel my heart growing old
Oh my blue blue caravan
I can feel my heart growing old

Delurking to say that this is just brilliant. The song choice is perfect, and the vid is beautiful and heart-wrenching.

I don't think I got a chance to tell you how much I loved this at the con, so I will say it now: I love this vid! It is gorgeous, and so sad and beautiful. ♥

Love this! It's such a pretty, thoughtful, creepy vid for Amy. It's hard to articulate but my favorite thing about it is how it takes a song that is *so* spot-on and yet builds something really cohesive with more complex dimensions than just that? If that makes sense? I think a lot of it comes from your clip choices focusing on creepy things or from creepy angles, instead of just focusing on Rory and the Doctor as true loves who never existed at all (Rory's dead feet, for example, instead of his face). It has a great sense of Amy's whole life not fitting together. And I love the choice to end on that unsettled note, before the happy ending.

I have been wishing for an Amy vid to this song since before the last season even ended, and this is everything I wanted and more. Just... ♥ ♥ ♥

Finally watched your vid, really loved the song choice and the back and forth of Rory and the Doctor as Amy's love. Beautiful vid!

SO gorgeous, oh my goodness. I never thought of that song for Amy, but it's eerily appropriate.

This is so pretty. I am super impressed with how fitting the lyrics are, and I love love love the way you matched Amy's slow piecing together of what's missing with the growing intensity of the song. SO well done. :D

That's so gorgeous! Oh, Amy!!! And what a perfect song choice! I'm not sure I'd ever paid that much attention to the lyrics of that song before.

OMG THIS WAS AMAZING. How did I never realize, in the billion times I've heard that song, that blue caravan = TARDIS?

This is one of those song-fandom matches, where you realize in retrospect that the songwiriter must have been quite familiar with the show/canon/fanon, obviously!

Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous.

The perfection of that song aside, what you *did* with it is just...absolutely. Yes. Oh, *Amy Pond*.
