Something in me almost breaks, but I wait...

Tami Taylor S2 character study. Notes and lyrics are under the cut and an extended commentary can be found here. Feedback is awesome and amazing (much like Tami herself).

I was going to write my usual blurb, but this quote from Tami (from 2.12, Who Do You Think You Are?) sums it up:

I think I forgot. I think I forgot what this new motherhood does to your life. How much it just turns everything upside down. And I really thought that I was gonna be able to do it, you know? And I can do the job, and I could raise Gracie, and take care of you, and take care of Jules, and... But I don't think...I don't think I can do it.

Ultimately, of course, she DOES do it. Not without difficulty, but she hangs in there, bless her. She is tenacious, she is flawed, she is amazing.

Lyrics:
Light weight, too straight, no reaction
I don't care if I'm not in fashion
I will follow you, I will follow you
It's hearts up, heads down, puddle of red wine
You get back up and you face the climb
I will follow you

Something in me almost breaks
But I wait
I'm sinking in my skin
Yeah, I wait
My heart is wearing thin
'Cause I'm looking for
Something beautiful

You cut me up and you make me bleed
A sad, stained heart hanging on my sleeve
I'll still follow you, I will follow you
And you say, "Look up, look up, look all around you
Can't you see the love that surrounds the very soul of you?"

Something in me almost breaks
But I wait
I'm sinking in my skin
Yeah, I wait
My heart is wearing thin
'Cause I'm looking for
Something beautiful
Something meaningful

You stick your soul out, risk it all
Your fearless beauty breaks your fall

Something in me
Knows there's something more
And it's so close I wanna run

But I wait
I'm sinking in my skin
And I wait
My heart is wearing thin
'Cause I'm looking for
Something beautiful
And I pray
For it to come right in
There'll come a day
My heart is wearing thin
That I'll fall upon
Something beautiful
Something meaningful
Something beautiful


Finally, a vid I can RELEASE! Actually my third vid this year, but the first two won't see the light of day until Vividcon in August. This was interesting in contrast to my previous FNL vid -- I went into this thinking it would be *so* much easier, since it was focused on a single character and not an ensemble piece. Deciding what to clip was indeed more straightforward, but then it was like...um, they're talking...they're talking ALL THE DAMN TIME. So, the challenge in this case was to find active, demonstrative moments buried in those endless discussions.

cibby -- aka my Ouiser, fellow FNL-lover and very recent Newborn Boot Camp survivor -- this one's for you :)
