Things I love about the video:
♥︎ The song itself, one of my faves on the album. Their voices blend gorgeously and it’s surprisingly catchy, staying in my head for ages… in a good way.
♥︎ The simplicity of the video matches the song itself.
♥︎ They both look so pretty.
♥︎ David’s “shades of Josh Bradley” emoting through those pre-contact-lens eyes of his.
♥︎ That it was launched as an exclusive to Variety! Nice strategic move, Team Archuleta! Fave bit of the interview (man, he’s a poet and doesn’t know it 🙂 ):
“When the seasons change in our lives it’s harder to stay motivated to say you know we had a beautiful time in our life. We had a beautiful spring and summer, but now the fall is coming, and I don’t want to go to your winter again,” he says. “But the woman is able to endure longer, and Madeline’s voice is saying you know what? Winter is coming, and it’s hard, but spring comes after that, and if we stick through it we will be able to see the blooming of our lives again, and I know if we hang in there it’s going to be ok.”
♥︎ That I only discovered watching the video that David and Madilyn sing different lyrics during the bridge (I, um, might have mostly been listening to his voice on the recording 🙂 ):
David: It looks like… / Madilyn: When will you see …
…we’re just running out of time.
David: I wish I could make it right / Madilyn: …what you and I could be
Both: We’re just watching summer die
Both: It’s (our) time to say goodbye
♥︎ His swanky coat.
♥︎ His even swankier boots.
oh, and one more thing: 🙂
How about you guys???? What did you think???
Love that David was pulling a Shelley and Insta-storey-ing from this Nashville songwriter jam. 🙂 🙂 🙂
