    WARNING: Contains Spoilers

    Overall I have no clue how much time I spent working on this, because I kept putting it off, and sometimes I’d go a couple months without even touching it, but here it is, lol. I had the idea after listening to the song and I wanted to make a video for it. After looking through my anime collection I thought to myself “hey this would go really well with Petite Cossette”, and after giving it some thought and watching it once through I realized just how perfect they were for each other.

    This video is about the relationship Eiri and Cossette have. Cossette hates him because his soul belonged to the man that killed her 250 years ago and she believes he is the same man. His was the soul of a talented painter who adored Cossette’s beauty, and he believed that she was perfect and loved painting pictures of her. But one day he realizes that she would not remain this way forever and so he kills her. When Eiri finds her soul in a valuable glass, her death is reenacted and he is left with the guilt of killing her. He becomes obsessed with her and she becomes his one true love, to the point where he no longer cares about anything else in his life and would go through any amount of pain to help her. Cossette also loved the man that killed her and takes out her anger towards him on Eiri, because nobody would want to be killed by the one they love. You could say their relationship is rather “bittersweet”.

    I think this fits well with the lyrics “I didn’t want to hurt you but your pretty when you cry”. Because as much as he loved her, he knew that her beauty would eventually change as she got older, and so he killed her while she was still beautiful.

    And “if you knew how much I loved you, you would run away” goes with how she wants to leave him once she realizes he will live a painful and unhappy life unless he forgets about her.

    Anyways, I hope you enjoy the video, opinions would be greatly appreciated =)

    Lyrics:
    You're made of my river baby
    You're made of my sin
    And I can't tell where your lust ends
    And where your love begins

    I didn't want to hurt you, baby
    I didn't want to hurt you
    I didn't want to hurt you
    But you're pretty when you cry

    The moon gives me permission
    And I enter through her eyes
    She's losing her virginity
    And all her will to compromise

    I didn't want to hurt you, baby
    I didn't want to hurt you
    I didn't want to hurt you
    But you're pretty when you cry

    I didn't want to fuck you, baby
    I didn't want to fuck you
    I didn't want to fuck you
    But you're pretty when you're mine

    I didn't really love you, baby
    I didn't really love you
    I didn't really love you, baby
    But I'm pretty when I lie

    You hurt me baby
    I hurt you baby

    How can you do this to me now?

    If you knew how much I loved you
    You would run away
    But when I treat you bad
    It always makes you want to stay

    I didn't want to hurt you, baby
    I didn't want to hurt you, baby
    I didn't want to hurt you, baby
    I didn't want to hurt you, baby
    I didn't want to hurt you, baby

    How can you do this to me now?
