Lyrics

You and I gonna walk on forever
The moon will guide our way
You and I gonna walk on forever
Until our dying day
Sail

The past, gone and over, let the future come
Grab what you can, girl, let us hit and run
Don't you wake the sleeping, don't you make a sound
And before sunrise we'll slowly sneak out of town
We hear the hounddogs howl from the past (we have to run)
I hear your breathing and my heart pounds fast
Run up the rocky road, swim across the sea (we'll overcome)
I swear we'll lose them for they're far too weak

You and I gonna walk on forever
(SAIL)
The moon will guide our way
(SAIL)
Girl I know that
You and I gonna walk on forever
(SAIL)
Until our dying day
(SAIL)

Smell the ash and sulfur, escape's our only hope
The earth has started shaking behind the velvet rope
Why do settle for less, our love deserves it all
This city is a mess, I know it's about to fall
They may hold grudge against you and I
But we don't let them even close to our life
Under black skies we move into a new dawn
(we'll overcome) the past behind us as we keep moving on

You and I gonna walk on forever
(SAIL)
The moon will guide our way
(SAIL)
Girl I know that
You and I gonna walk on forever
(SAIL)
Until our dying day
(SAIL)

I flailed at you in the FV post comments already about this, but I've just downloaded it and wanted to tell you again how much I love it. I can't believe you've managed to make such a dynamic vid out of such a languid source, and still make it feel like you've captured the essence of the film. It's really beautiful.

Thank you so much! The quiet, static nature of the footage made me really doubt for a long time if I could pull it off, so it's very relieving to hear that people think it worked. :)

I really enjoyed this, mood, transitions, links - everything. In keeping with the film, but a fresh take on it too.

I just happened upon this, and I just wanted to say, it's perfect!

Uggggg, I still love this SO MUCH. I keep watching it again and again and finding myself humming the song (which was a brilliant choice, btw).

Thank you so, so much! I hope you enjoyed making it even a fraction as much as I enjoy the finished product.

<3 <3 I'm so happy you liked it. Thank you for requesting it, the movie was on my to-watch-list ever since it was released but Festivids was what finally made me watch it and I loved it. :)
