  • Comments: A friend of mine once told me that, "everyone is looking for someone to pin their dreams on." This video is about attaching ourselves to another person--who we think will take us to the pinnacle of happiness--and realizing the fantasy outshines them. Either we give up the person closest to us, or we abandon the dream and live with our "eyes shut wide" to our lover's faults and failings.

    This video is not a recap of the movie itself. While various elements of the actual storyline are used, the feeling I wanted to project is quite different from the movie's conclusion.

    Song Lyrics

    It's 3 a.m. and I have been
    In my head for quite some time
    Every fear, every tear
    Has been swirling in my mind
    And there are still a hundred reasons
    I shouldn't walk away
    Do I love you if I leave you?
    You have no name

    I was up all night
    Waiting for some kind of miracle
    I was up all night
    Feeling alone in the universe
    I was up all night

    When morning comes
    I will tell you (I will tell you)
    It's life I have to chase
    But every song that I sing
    Will be written by your face

    And if you're really meant to be
    Then you'll be back again
    And I watch as your beginning
    Turns into the end

    I was up all night (I was up all night)
    Waiting for some kind of miracle
    I was up all night (I was up all night)
    Feeling alone in the universe
    If it's you or if it's me I save
    I'm still throwing it all away
    I was up all night

    Oh, the kick inside
    In the dark you hide
    And we both know how the end will be
    In your little tide
    With your eyes shut wide
    And we both know how the end will be
    How it will be

    I was up all night (I was up all night)
    Feeling alone in the universe
    If it's you or if it's me I save
    I'm still throwing it all away
    I was up all night

    I was up all night (I'm bending until I break for you)
    I was up all night
    Night
    Night
    Night
