VID: Valinor (Let Me Go)

One day I'll probably finish some of my fic WIPs, but in the meantime I am apparently FULL OF VIDS. This one: ostensibly a Lord of the Rings vid, actually a lot about my Silmarillion feelings.

call out what we’ve become
the news has turned to numb
locked in nearsight
on the latest device
let the yet-to-be pick up the tab
say we can’t escape
though there’s plenty of space
barring holding on to what we used to have

in your head, where we’re headed
you gotta let it on by, let me go
and get it in your head, where we’re headed
you gotta let it all die, let me go

we lay it out on the map
debate it all in caps
lock our eyes on
distant horizons
where we will shift to some informed accord
in another town
settle up, settle down
we insist on the option or we’re out the door

so get it in your head…

gone, it’s gone
gave in again, now let me go
gone, it’s gone
gave in again, now let me go

or maybe this is a test
maybe this is a course correction
oh I said it, no no don’t let it get out of control
in your head, where we’re headed
you gotta let it on by, let me go
and get it in your head, where we’re headed
you gotta let it all die, let me go
this hope, it begins to know
we could return again, don’t let me go
I get it in my heart, I know we could restart
we can begin again, don’t let me go
gone, it’s gone
return again, don’t let me go
gone, it’s gone
begin again, don’t let me go

This is beautiful! I don't know the Silmarillion at all, but you made this really modern song work wonderfully with the LotR source, which is v impressive! And now I need to go and watch LotR all over again, because you have awoken all my hobbity feels. <3

(I've added this to my Vienna Teng spreadsheet! Let me know if there's any others of yours I've missed! Or any others that you know about! :-) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tI2ZMJVv8HbRj1D0xMx899Dn6S8bqZ4cXzO_GLyZGhw/edit#gid=0)
