  • Comments: My second attempt at an AMV which I hope is better than the first. I decided to use a Grateful Dead song, which you may not immediately connect with Azumanga Daioh, but I hope I kinda captured the essence of the lyrics, which is all I was really going for. Besides, there really aren't any AMVs with Grateful Dead music, and I find that to be a horrible oversight.

    And just an update: This AMV was entered in the 2006 AnimeIowa AMV contest.

    The lyrics are as follows:

    If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
    And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,
    Would you hear my voice come thru the music,
    Would you hold it near as it were your own?

    Itís a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,
    Perhaps theyíre better left unsung.
    I donít know, donít really care
    Let there be songs to fill the air.

    Ripple in still water,
    When there is no pebble tossed,
    Nor wind to blow.

    Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,
    If your cup is full may it be again,
    Let it be known there is a fountain,
    That was not made by the hands of men.

    There is a road, no simple highway,
    Between the dawn and the dark of night,
    And if you go no one may follow,
    That path is for your steps alone.

    Ripple in still water,
    When there is no pebble tossed,
    Nor wind to blow.

    But if you fall you fall alone,
    If you should stand then whoís to guide you?
    If I knew the way I would take you home.

    La dee da da da, la da da da da, da da da, da da, da da da da da
    La da da da, la da da, da da, la da da da, la da, da da.
